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.

Let me start by saying, for a 5 star restaurant the ambience and the scenic views made that rating. There were numerous things that to me did not cut it for a five star. 1. My pork meal was a little dry. The dessert was so small I could not really tell how good it was. 2. I realize that this type of dining is about presentation, but if you are going to serve the food on huge plates, then have bigger tables. At our 4 person table it was a constant struggle moving things around to fit on the table. 3. To me what really hurt our dinner experience was the waiter. He seemed very rushed, talked fast and was very hard to understand. There was no sense of a 5 star dining experience.

Atmosphere was awesome. Very romantic and the view of the city is beautiful. Food was great, with the exception of the flying ant in my water, everything was fabulous. The waiter fixed the issue right away. Keep up the great work.

Love the views, they can’t be beat. Great place to have dinner and then take your drinks to the breathtaking patio to overlook the glistening lights of the city and mountains beyond.

Gave the food 4 stars because my truffle filet didn’t have a truffle taste nor did I see any truffles and my hubbys side dish of lobster risotto was way to salty. But, will go again. Nice ambience and great espresso chocolate martinis for desert.

The views and atmosphere really make the difference! It was great for date night and an anniversary dinner! The only negative was that it did take quite a while for our dinner to be brought out, considering it was not very crowded the night we went and there were only two meals to be made for us. Overall, we enjoyed our experience!

We came here for our 10yr anniversary, and had an amazing time!! The views of the city are unbelievable- and as it gets darker it gets prettier and more romantic. The food is presented with the highest of standards, and the tastes are playful and delicious.

The menu online was not the current one (changed to summer menu a week ago, so not a problem).

The one negative is the wait staff didn’t know what was on the chef’s special tasting menu, and we felt like they were trying to get us to pick something instead. The service and knowledge they provided after that easily made up for it.

At the end of the night they gave us a special mousse desert with a chocolate on top that said “happy anniversary “ and gave us a box to transport that home. Little touches like that make this place even more memorable.

Overall we will definitely come back, and plan to frequent the bar area for happy hours at a regular basis.

One of the most romantic restaurants we have enjoyed. The service by Luis and Paul was amazing. Luis guided us through a great anniversary dinner. But it wasn't just the dinner it was the entire night and place that made it worth coming back.

Overall a very enjoyable experience. Approachable wine list with most below $100 bottle. Ambience was calming with a beautiful view of the valley. Service was attentive, not hovering and proper service techniques applied. Items for constructive feedback: 1) Bread without a crunchy crust should be served warm, 2) Appetizers of beef carpaccio and seared tuna needed seasoning, 3) Beet frisée salad was way over seasoned and needed more beets.

Entrees of braised lamb and buck breast were spot on!

In addition some of the best food in town, and the wait staff was suburb. Every recommendation the waiter made was perfection - and Items I would never order. This is a place I will return again and again.

While we were raving about the food last year, we were rather disappointed during our last visit. We were told that the sous-chef recently left and with him, unfortunately, the creative dishes that we previously enjoyed. The food was fine - nothing special anymore and overall a little boring and overpriced. The ambience is amazing though, especially during sunset.
