There is socially distanced seating, constant sanitizing and the staff wear masks and gloves for your safety. Poised 1,800 feet above the Valley of the Sun, Different Pointe of View offers guests breathtaking views second only to the outstanding regional American cuisine that features fresh local and organic ingredients. The restaurant's mountaintop location and floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of the desert landscape, the city's twinkling lights in the distance and Arizona's brilliant sunsets. No restaurant in the state has a longer streak of consecutive AAA four-diamond awards and Sunset Magazine named it one of the top 10 mountaintop restaurants in the nation. Valley residents have come for years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, romantic evenings or just treat themselves to one of the most unique Arizona experiences. The Terrace Room Lounge, next to the restaurant, features one of the largest patios and a nine foot fire pit on the cliff side.

Truly an awesome dining experience. Ian was our waiter and made the entire meal feel awesome. Even after going out to the patio after our meal, he continued to provide service. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Luis was our server, and he was amazing! We had the best time celebrating our anniversary. We were separated from others, and Luis even helped us pick out a great bottle of wine!

The food was amazing, and the staff was extremely knowledgeable about the menu with great recommendations. The views can’t be beat. The staff seemed to follow COVID restrictions and it was appropriately spaced out. Overall, great experience!

Amazing dining experience, delicious food and a beautiful view! I took my wife there for Valentine’s Day and we had such a great date. Our server, Nash, provided the best customer service my wife and I have ever had and truly made the dining experience extra special.

Amazing experience with views you will never forget. Ambience is great and service was excellent. Comparing menu items and quality to items at other places in the price range is where the value hit occurs. Will be back but likely for drinks, apps and the view over dinner.

The restaurant was great! Beautiful views and top notch dining in the main dining room. My only complaint was the bar staff. My party of 4 arrived early to catch the sun going down on the city before or reservations at 7:30. I told the hostess we were early and would be drinking in the bar, if a table came up early we’d love to sit down sooner but that we understood that our reservation time was a ways out. She was great! But the bar staff while we waited for our seating were seemingly confused as to why we would sit in the bar at all. We asked about heaters (that were sitting in the corner unused) and we were told that there were no heaters. When we pointed them out we were told they couldn’t be used. Then she disappeared for a long time. We got a drink order ready as we watched the sunset light up the city but it was indeed getting too chilly to set outside comfortably so when she returned we asked if we could order our drinks inside. She said yes, and we moved. We were the ONLY TABLE INSIDE, and were asked why we picked the table we did by a shouting bartender. Then waited another 5 minutes for the service to bring us cocktail napkins. As she set them down I began to order a bottle of wine but the server walked away. It actually began to be comical... luckily our table was ready in the dining room because we literally never were able to order a bar drink. It was a completely different atmosphere upstairs in the main dining room. Our server was AMAZING and I’m glad he got the tip instead of the bar staff, honestly. Food was unbelievable.

Everything was fantastic—the view, our servers, and the food. It was our 20-year anniversary and they remembered and treated us with a small dessert to celebrate. It is an expensive meal, over $250 for two with tip, but it’s well worth it for special events like our anniversary. We want to come back soon for drinks in the bar.

This place is my new favorite restaurant! Our food, the atmosphere, and the staff was all phenomenal. Our server, Austin, was enjoyable to be around and gave my husband and I great food and drink recommendations. Every time we come back to Phoenix, we will make a point to come here. Wishing we were staying longer so we could get another dinner in before we leave!

We enjoy taking friends to this restaurant because of the amazing view and food. The food was great as always, Brian our server was fantastic and attentive. They serve with a group of server's that makes the presentation of the food even better. The plates are artistically plated. The only negatives I would like to point out to management is that they place is looking tired. The carpets are in dire need of replacement, the style is old Spanish but it is looking tired old not quaint old. There is also a weird smell that is in the air as you come up the stairs and also in the lobby. I was disappointed that the bar is only open on Friday and Saturday now which I am assuming is because of Covid. Short ribs are amazing as is the Lobster Bisque!

I am a little bit disappointed about the place. The view was spectacular I gave them that. The service was OK. The server seems preoccupied at times and have forgotten our drinks.

The most disappointing of all was that of sewer smell coming from downstairs.The front desk lady said it’s a sewer line accident that day because of the rain. The foul smell from downstairs followed us inside the restaurant. It is really hard for me to focus on the food because of the stench smell from outside. It appears that the sewer problem have been there a while.

The food was decent once you get past the service and smell

I don’t think we’re going back there.
