Absolutely incredible view, excellent service and best meal I’ve ever had. We had reservations at 5:15 at first I wanted a little later but so glad we kept the time, we got to experience the view of daylight, sun setting and night view with all the city lights during our dinner. It was gorgeous!
Good meal with an outstanding view! The servers were charming.
Food, wine, and VIEWS. Take your honey here for a special date night, anniversary, birthday, and get that outside table!!!! WOW. Everything was excellent from the service, to the food, and the amazing views. Bread basket with dips was awesome. We got the ricotta agnolotti and a salad for starters. I got the chicken entree which I really enjoyed. Husband got the pork which was delightful. For dessert a maple pecan ice cream. Absolutely incredible.
Absolutely wonderful place! Fantastic view and ambiance. Excellent service.
Lovely ambience, excellent service and great cuisine. Second time to dine here and will certainly do so again!
Over priced. Food is not good quality. Portion sizes are extremely small.
This was my third experience here and my view has not changed each time. Outstanding food and service. The view is some of the best in Phoenix. Highly recommend if you are looking for a very good fine dining location. You wont be disappointed.
Wonderful atmosphere, food was delicious , bread service a little dry, but loved the butter options they give. Ordered medium steak received medium well, none of these are a deal breaker, been coming for years and will always return! Get the lobster bisque, it will change your life!!
Beautiful views! Great service, yummy food! Highly recommend!
The best wonderful experience
View was outstanding. Our waiter, Lenny went above and beyond to make our Anniversary a special evening. He was so nice he even walked us to where our shuttle was to take us back to the hotel.
Wife’s birthday. Waiter (Nate) made the experience awesome.
Luis E was a magnificent waiter who made our experience a wonder, adding fun and specialness to our anniversary. The food was delicious, exceeding our expectations for quality, uniqueness, and value.
Service was great. View was amazing. Food was good could have been hotter. Overall nice experience.
Great view of city lights! Order dessert too, they are unique!
The view was amazing. The food was amazing. The waitstaff was amazing and super friendly! We had a wonderful experience.
Pluses: The view here is amazing. It is a great place to visit for a special occasion. Food was quite good and generous. Attentive waitstaff. The beef brisket was amazing.
Negatives: Restaurant called me day prior to say patio closed for special event. That is one of the prime reasons I wanted to come to this place. Quite disappointed. Missed out on sitting outside on a beautiful night. They should have notified me way earlier.
While waitstaff was attentive, it was really too much and too hurried. No time to really enjoy your drink, your salad or your meal. Had to stop them 3 time from taking me plate.
Waiter was good but a bit abrupt.
Sea bass was VERY salty. Bricket was very tasty albeit luke warm.
Note: They do not allow a corkage, so you are forced to order off their wine list. I had a very good bottle of wine which I could not enjoy.
This whole place just feels a bit dated, like dining was in the 90s. Entryway is a bit drab and run down. The menu is good but not very inventive. The bread was a bit stale and tasteless.
Finally, bring a sweater. It was freezing in the dining room and my date had to wear a tablecloth(I'm not joking) to stay warm on a night where we expected to sit out in 78F weather.
Overall I'd give it a solid B.
The food and the view was fantastic! Unfortunately the service was a major let down. Besides being incredibly slow, they were not overly attentive and when our entrees finally came, they brought fish to one person who had ordered short rib. They did try and tide him over with Lobster Bisque but it completely ruined the pace of the entrees. We were there celebrating a birthday and were charged for the birthday dessert and no consideration for the incorrect entree. Disappointed.
Obviously the view is fantastic. Was pleasantly surprised by the good service with all that’s going on. Had pork belly and crab cake for appetizers and both excellent. Although others loved the shrimp and scallops, Try the risotto!
Beautiful setting with impeccable service and food for a special dinner.
Overall a truly amazing experience. Breathtaking views, excellent service, and delicious food!
Food, views, and service were amazing. Richard, was awesome. Makes sense that he's been there for over 20 years. He's a gem.
- biggest complaint … the bar was closed for a private party and when i spoke to the restaurant 2 days beforehand and Specifically asked about the bar and getting there early they did not inform me that it was reserved. So we got there an hour before our reservation and were unable to use the bar.
This place was amazing!! I had requested patio seating in my reservation, but unfortunately we were not able to sit outside. We could still see through all the windows though. Our waiter was exceptional, definitely the best service I’ve ever received, he was honest about the drinks and food and kept bringing us treats at the end!
It was excellent. Food, service, view couldn’t have been better
Stunning views from the comfortable upscale dining room. Creative menu perfectly executed. Friendly, efficient and attentive service. Wonderful evening!
We are a retired couple with birthdays in Oct. this was a gift to ourselves and it was great. Never have dined here before. 5 pm reservation and they were spot on time. Choice of inside window or out. We chose inside and its great by the window. Saw all the beautiful scenery changes from light to dark.
The staff is welcoming and completely embrace giving you a five star experience. We are not regular “exquisite dining” people and they quickly made us feel at ease.
The food is nothing but wonderful. Beautifully and artfully presented and never were we rushed from appetizers to entree to dessert to coffee and even picture taking!
The steak was cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the choices that accompanied the bread.
Went here for my birthday and it was amazing. I'll be back
Great service from the moment you enter the place. Great wine selection and the scallops were amazing! Would highly recommend every guest to try the crab cake! Beautiful view as well! Overall great experience!
Unbelievable view and food. I got the filet and it did not disappoint. The truffle sauce wasn’t over powering for the steak as well. Our server Ian was hugely knowledgeable and helpful. The lobster bisque was very flavorful and well balanced. Get the good the bad and the old fashioned.
We went for our anniversary dinner and had nash as our server and he was amazing as was the food, drinks, drinks and views. I highly recommend we will be back.
If you are looking for a place to eat that is truly astounding. Then A Different Point of View is where you should eat.
It is a restaurant that is good for all occasions. My husband and I went for our anniversary, but there were people there for a family dinner, date night, etc.
The view you get when eating is the best view in town. The restaurant is literally on top of a Mountain. So you over look parts of Phoenix while dining on some of the best food I have had in Phoenix.
The people who serve you truly care about your experience.
If I had been staying in Phoenix longer then I would have eaten here more than twice!
One of the most reasonable cost places of 5 star caliber in all characteristics
Wonderful a beautiful date location!!
It was our 10th anniversary and we had promised ourselves we would return to Different Pointe of View to make this extra special. It just wasn't anything special like our other special trips. Service seemed some what adequate but by a waiter who obviously tried but was very rushed. Yes we came at 5:30 which I didn't realized what a decline in experience it would be. The meals were ok but not great. It seemed most things on the menu now are spicy and the vegetable combination for non-spicy choices seemed unusual. the waiter did put the spicy sauses on the side for the scallops and shrimp The waiter recommended short ribs to my husband. It came with brussels spouts. Ask a dozen men - how many of them love brussel sprouts. We wish we had celebrated at a local Italian restaurant.
We have been enjoying this restaurant for well over 30 years. It has always been top notch and never let us down.
Having said that it’s overdue for an interior update to its furnishing and finishes.
Ambiance and city views were its best features! Was hoping food was better, but it wasn't bad. Service was excellent. If there was a "Romance" category it would get 6 Stars!!!
Great experience. Awesome view. Good food.
It was an awesome experience, the people working there made all the difference... they took care of us even though my reservation was made on the wrong date, they got us in and were very pleasant and professional.
