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.

Always a great dinning experience. Unique menu items and wine. Large open terraced dining room is quite and pleasant. Wonderful service by all. Spectacular views from full glass window show the nearby mountains and the Phoenix valley for miles past downtown.

Overall, the dining experience at Tapatio was wonderful. We were seated at a table overlooking Phoenix proper, and the view was outstanding. The service was terrific, and the ambiance very low key and romantic. The food was delicious, although the filet was a little over cooked, and the potato wedge was on the dry side. Would definitely return for another romantic dinner.

Ian was our waiter. Very professional and knowledgeable. Excellent service. The food was presented so beautifully, we took photos before eating it. Every course was inventive, full of amazing flavor combinations we'd never seen before. All were delicious! Of course the view is always spectacular, and Ian took our photo on the patio to remember the evening.

While the view is undeniable and the service courteous and attentive, the food itself falls short of expectation… Middle of the road would be the best way to describe it… I would be inclined to return just for cocktails and to enjoy the view.

First time here, the food was okay, not the best in my opinion. The view definitely carries this place. We also had a reservation for 730 and didn’t get seated until 820, almost an hour later. Wouldn’t come back,

I had a wonderful evening here with my family for my 40th birthday. Nash, our server was friendly, informative and make our experience wonderful.
The views were beautiful and the menu was delicious. There were so many wonderful options we had a hard time choosing.

My 4 year old loved that they had a kids steak. He gobbled it up. Was cooked to perfect medium rare.

Wonderful experience and we will be back.

Best views in the valley hands down for any restaurant or ph luv facility. Service was top notch however food was OK. Had a filet and risotto and although everything was cooked the way it was supposed to I’ve had better quality Ford for less. None the less it was a very enjoyable experience and have a great wine selection.

Our waiter did a fantastic job and was very attentive. One of the fillets came out a little undercooked and he immediately took it back to the kitchen and finished the cooking. He brought the steak out garnished very well after heating up so the presentation was very good.

We had dessert and he asked if we would be interested in having the dessert out on the patio. Great view.

Overall the dinner and service was exceptional. Nicely done.

Great experience. We made a 6:15 reservation. Chose outside dining. It was a little toasty at first but oh so worth it once the sun started going down. Amazing sunset followed by city lights and the full moon rising afterwards. Signature cocktails were delicious. The food was exquisite! Waiter was very helpful and made great recommendations. Will definitely need to go back and try more items on the menu.

I am thoroughly disappointed in our experience at this restaurant. My first dining experience at an advertised 4 star+ restaurant and we were treated like scum. The server was very passive, rude and made no effort to make us feel special or to make our dining experience special. It was blatantly obvious when the neighboring tables he was also serving were treated pristinely and with respect. I would expect at an advertised 4 star+ restaurant they would take the time to make you feel special and wanted, especially when they ask you if you are celebrating a special occasion (anniversary) and nothing was acknowledged. The icing on the cake as when our dinner was $200+ and the server hands us the boxes to box up our leftovers. I initially thought this was for COVID but when the server boxed up the food for the neighboring tables, that again solidified we meant nothing and were treated less than. Will not be visiting this establishment again and will be sure to spread the word. Very disappointed and let down with our experience.

My boyfriend and I went here while on our first vacation together. We stayed at the resort so we took the shuttle up and back down again. The experience from entry to the end was excellent. Service here is great. We’ve never had a better server, they were very energetic and attentive. Drinks were flavorful. Apps and entrees came out timely, hot, and delicious. We went at dusk, sun was already down but the views here are to die for. It was even more amazing to be able to walk around the terrace and get all the pictures we wanted. Loved it here and would definitely return.
