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.

Very slow service. Had to ask for bread 3 times. Then it was placed on table without explanation as to the different butters. Having dined there previously we knew that we should have been told what they were. When we, 4 of us, were finished eating it was more than 10 minutes till our dirty dishes were taken off table.

The lobster bisque is absolutely out of this world. Our server suggested dipping our bread in the bisque. He was right; it was fantastic. All of his suggestions were spot on. We’ll definitely be back.

AZ restaurant week offerings attracted us to try this restaurant FAR from our residence. Vegan risotto and gluten free lobster bisque were delicious as was halibut special of the day. While the short ribs were as good as waiters recommendation, they were a shock to one guest’s system from over eating. View is good, outdoor patio was shaded and comfortable as temp hovered just under triple digits. Service was excellent, timely and knowledgeable. Facility especially carpet shows some heavy use and needs an update. Carmel brownie was sized to share (but disappeared first!)

We have been here many times, love the views, the food and the service. The four stars on the food is due to the pork shank not being braised enough. It was a little on the tough side.

What can I say about the view....awesome! Seth and Austin were our servers and they were the best. I had the scallops and they were the best I have ever had. I hope I can get back to Phoenix again just to visit this fabulous restaurant. Great experience

Our reservations were for 7.30. We got there a few mins before but we told all the tables were full so we can wait or go to the patio area one floor below and they would get us. 40mins later someone came to get us. The waiter wasn’t friendly & accommodating as we said we didn’t want drinks as we had some on the patio while waiting. After making a reservation to be there for sunset, and being seated 45mins after, it wasn’t accepted. Otherwise the view & our food was good. Bisque was a bit salty.

We went to the Mothers Day brunch and had requested a table by the window. The reservation was at 1:30 we showed up at 1:00 to look around a bit and take in the view. We checked in at 1:00. At 1:15 they came and got us and said they were ready, and they seated us at a table by the window as requested with a magnificent view. The buffet was amazing and the waiter we had was always nearby to get us anything we wanted. He even made sure to point out that the gratuity had already been included due to the special nature of the day.

I absolutely loved my experience here at Different Pointe of View. I had the swordfish w/ lentils and it was excellent - loved the flavors!!!! My first time having swordfish - I savored every bite! This is a very romantic restaurant with 360 views of the city. If possible, go during the sunset to get some good pics. I have already referred several people from my work conference to dine at this restaurant. I can’t wait to eat here again and bring friends!

I arrived with a large group, we all had separate reservations made through the website. When we arrived the hostess was quite rude and immediately told my party that none of us were in her system...before she even looked at the computer. Other than that, the experience was decent.

Another wonderful meal by the Chef and staff. Came prepared for the 5 course tasting menu, but after thoroughly enjoying the scallop course followed by lamb, halibut and duck courses I was expecting dessert but we were surprised by an excellent Kobe strip slices topped with black truffle. It was AMAZING!! The dessert that follow was light and a great end to a truly fantastic meal. Great way to end a Monday.

I had the swordfish and it was seasoned and prepared perfectly. My date had the chef special and it was magnificent. Our service was top notch and the atmosphere was very romantic with the view and all.

For dessert we had the chocolate peanut butter thing and is was superb.

Probably my 10th visit and they always seem to impress me and my dates.

This was our 4th time at Different Pointe of View and have also been extremely happy with the food, service and especially the view however, on this occasion the service was outstanding but the food was only average. Halibut was the "chef's special" the evening we were there and it was overcooked and dry. Also the "purple" mashed potatoes were so dry we did not eat them.
