Contemporary American
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.

Great location with good view. Didn’t sit in bar but it looked big and inviting. Service was outstanding, staff very friendly. We had strawberry arugula salad and it was fantastic. I had the sea bass and it was okay. It’s Calif sea bass, so not the Chilean goodness. It is not as fatty and therefore not as tender, but a good white fish. The risotto was good and presentation very nice. My wife had the rock shrimp risotto and wasn’t a fan. The shrimp is chopped in little pieces and gets lost. The andouille sausage is good, but there is so much in the dish and along with whatever seasoning it dominates. Very strong flavors, a heavy dish.

Couldn’t find a good cabernet by the glass, but the ‘Sandstorm’ tequilla cocktail was amazing. Really, amazing.

The bread served before the appetizers was basic at best (I've had better French bread from fry's) and served with bricks of individually wrapped butter (similar to what they serve at a cheap hotel). Meh is the best that I can say about it.

The appetizers and dinner were great! I had the pork belly to start and the Bass for a meal. My wife had the salad starter and the short ribs for dinner. All were well prepared and delicious.

My wife and I got the Crème Brûlée as a dessert. It was just OK, tasted like it came from a powder mix. That said, it wasn't the worst I've ever had.

The place was so beautiful, the only thing is if you are doing your own parking, the parking lot and stairs should be fixed very soon, no handrails either on a very steep cliff.

The atmosphere and food was wonderful. We went for our anniversary. It was during Corona, so we had to wear a mask until we were seated. Otherwise it didn't interfere with the enjoyment of the experience.

The food was not worth the price at all. We ordered filet mignon (medium rare) and they came almost well done. Sent back the order and one was rare and the other was medium. Both steaks smelled like pork, not steak. Veggies were charred and they over whelmed the steak with a thick teriyaki like dressing. We also ordered the lobster bisque that was rich and buttery. The service was amazing and the ambiance was great. Was really disappointed with the food, especially because of the price we paid. I booked at the Hilton specifically to eat at this restaurant and I was very disappointed. I would not recommend

This was the restaurant's second night after being closed for 3 months. Zee greeted us with her warm Aloha spirit, Louis came to wait on us with his usual exuberance, and the food was delicious as usual! We had missed one of favorite restaurants and are so glad they are reopened and will definitely return soon!

Worn out ellagance! The ambience was no doubt affected by Covid. The food was very good, however it started off with "day old" french bread -- very poor choice to set the scene. We were there for a redo of our engagement some 38 years ago, when it started out to be an elegant and classic french restaurant. The waiter was very attentive and the food was basically good, but this property needs a face lift!

I made a reservation two weeks in advance for anniversary and when we got there they sat us near the entrance. Then told me it would be 45 minutes. Even though a couple just got up from a table. Food was excellent and waiter was nice. But view was limited from our table.

The view here is sublime, much like the service! Great place for a special evening out. We enjoyed several appetizers - hamachi crudo, beet salad, calamari steak. Greatly enjoyed the large scallops, though the cornmeal was on the crumbly side. The pork chop was juicy with nice flavor and the steaks cooked to perfection. The mashed potatoes had some cheese in them so we should have read the menu more carefully and asked for a substitute but that was our fault.
Very enjoyable!

The service was excellent, and the view from the patio is beautiful. I'd recommend only going for drinks. The food did not meet our expectations, especially considering the price. I ordered the sea bass and sent it back, the hubs got a steak and it was just so-so. Nice place, but not worth the price for the food.

The food was very good. But I think spent too much time in accompaniments. The halibut was wonderful, but the dish was muddled with 3 or 4 other flavors.
Just my opinion.
I would to back for the view, but probably skip the meal.

Second time to this restaurant, I supposed expectations from shirt off the first go around. The mission fig salad was flavorless and the snapper special was a let down. 7 minutes for water and about 12 before we were given menus. But the waiter was very animated and fun when he did make it to us each time.

View is unbeatable. Food was fantastic. The venue is getting dated though. Really needs a refresh. The carpet on the stairs going up to restaurant is threadbare and there is sort of a musty smell. Bathrooms were clean but also very dated - feel sort of like an airport bathroom.
