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.

It was piff. Food was bangin’. Service was A-1. Sat by the window, it was tight. Prime short rib was delicious. Sausage shrimp risotto was bomb.

Go for the view and stay for the food.
Service is there when you need it and not when you don't. Friendly but professional.

Service was impeccable, DIVINE food, spectacular view! They did forget my husband's birthday though, which was our primary reason for dining out....was a bummer. Tables around us received Happy Birthday chocolates...However, the experience was overall an enjoyable one! Definitely the best cuisine we've had in Phoenix to date! It was nice to have a romantic date night away from the kids.

Heavily salted nearly inedible sea scallops, the waiter irritatingly putting his hand above my plate pointing with his finger as he describes what is on my plate as if I have no idea what I ordered and lastly the worlds smallest creme brule delivered to the table....again with the hand and exended finger dusting my desert with his DNA. I will NOT be back.

Food was delicious but too salty. Fish was over cooked a bit. Would like more variety on the munu: healthier, no dairy.

I went there for my birthday with my friend and WOW it was AMAZING. Service was fantastic, the Pinot noir ROCKED, and the corn agnolotti was the best thing I’ve ever eaten. We had a little birthday chocolate pretzel cake thing at the end and I can’t even explain how good it was. Our server was phenomenal, I wish so badly that I remembered his name.

What a wonderful place! Views is obviously stunning, both seated at the tables and outside on the terraces (perfect for taking pictures). Many restaurants with this kind of spectacular setting might rely on it for repeat business- but this place truly delivers on both service and food. The food was incredible and portions were even large which is rare with fine dining. We visited on vacation but I would definitely return if ever in town again. Highly recommend.

Wife really liked her meal. Said it was great.
I was not impressed with mine. Asked for medium rare and got medium well.
The salads were 1 out of 3 items were good.
I wear hearing aids and could not get them lowered. took them off as it became to loud.
Bar was closed.
Our anniversary was ignored. It got lost with the update. We updated the people there but no change. We were charged for everything.

The restaurant and entire resort look VERY tired. Our waiter was excellent and the nicest thing about our dinner. Food was disappointing. The pork tenderloin was served with 4 tiny baby squash and all was sitting in a pool of green mush - not sure what it was.
