Contemporary American
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.

The view is undeniably fabulous. But that is all that is fabulous. The signs directing you to the restaurant are not lit at night, so finding the entrance is a chore. The food is mediocre at best. The restaurant seriously needs updating. If there is an option to have a drink at the bar and enjoy the view, do that. Then have dinner elsewhere.

Service was outstanding and the best part of the venue. The view was excellent. I would not return for the food. Salads were fair. Risotto was poor. Pork belly appetizer was fair to good.

When I made the reservation I did not know I could request outside or a view window. For just the two of us we were sat a a four top table with no intimacy. Our Server was amazing and for our desert he moved us to a window table. The food was good, but not Great. For the price I expect far better taste and appearance. Amazing service, ok food, and possibly an amazing view.

Food was not what I remember, It used to be really good. The bath room was flooded. Water was everywhere, my shoes go wet. Not a good experience.
I would only recommend this restaurant for the view.

Me and my Wife were inside at first. After we requested a table outside we were accommodated in 2 minutes. Everyone was polite and we constantly were checked on. The food was beautiful and equally delicious. It’s very reasonably price but be prepared to pay 180 or more for 2. That’s for a appetizer, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts, and 4 drinks. It’s not that bad but it’s all worth it. Me and my wife were treated very well and they treat everyone equally! The please try this restaurant you WILL NOT REGRET IT! Best dinning experience of my life up to this point. Thank you to the staff!!!

Most amazing dining experience! Was worth the drive from Scottsdale. Beautiful view, great food and service. I got the sea bass and my husband got the shrimp risotto. Our waiter went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with our drinks and food. Sent us home with a chocolate mouse dessert for our anniversary that was to die for.

Was absolutely amazed by our experience at Different Pointe of View! Luis was our server and he was truly a delight! He had great recommendations and you could just feel his true intention of providing a great dining experience for each one of his guests! The food was spectacular and the ambiance was amazing! The only thing we wish was that we would have made our reservation for earlier so we could see the sunset! Overall would highly recommend to anyone visit Arizona!

My husband and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary on the terrace of this fabulous restaurant. Our meals of short ribs and pork shank were exquisite, the service attentive and the ambience with a view of twinkling lights from the greater Phoenix area was unmatched. This was a perfect place for our special celebration!

I booked Different Pointe of View for my birthday and had 5 of us total. It was an amazing time, Richard was our server and he was funny, friendly, and knowledgeable about anything we asked about. The food was great, I had a filet mignon, as well as the lobster bisque for an appetizer and could not get enough. The view was just as good, seeing the valley from that perspective was a great experience. I will definitely be back.

We went for AZ Restaurant Week. Our server was great, very helpful. The food was amazing - lobster bisque and pork belly appetizers were delicious. I had their special of salmon with cous cous and my date had the short ribs. Both were delicious! The view was amazing and we will definitely be back to sit outside when the weather gets cooler.

I had booked this Reservation for our honeymoon. Prior to our reservation I called the restaurant to remind them that we were on our honeymoon and to make sure that they had something special planned for us for us. They had confirmed that they were aware of this due to the initial booking and they would do something. When we got there there was no champagne toast so I thought maybe they'll write Congratulations on a dessert, but much to my surprise there was nothing. I was very disappointed considering I had confirmed with them less than 2 hours prior to our dinner.

Different Pointe of View is magnificent. The staff has incredible knowledge not only of the extensive menu, but of wines, photography, customer service and friendliness. I cannot think of a more appropriate "go to" venu for any celebration.
