We were celebrating a birthday and in the reservation requested a window seat with a view. They gave us a wonderful table right next to the window and the fireplace. The server was very nice and the manager came by our table a couple of times to check on us and answer questions about the menu. It was a very good experience and we were happy that we chose it.

We were disappointed with the food escargot, cold duck, cold wild boar we couldn’t find a New Years menu any where on their site. Even the waiter was saying the new chef was kinda weird and others were complaining and sending the food back to be cooked or warmed. For two people at $300 should have had better options. Hope the rest of 2019 is better...

This was our first time at Top of the Rock so I’m giving it 4 stars for potential. We had a prefixe menu for NYE with additional beverage pairing. The ambiance and views were fantastic, and the music was swanky! The bathroom is down a long staircase which wasn’t preferable in a dress and heels but just noted. Half of the food was fantastic and the other half was mediocre. You could tell the chef was trying to be really creative but some of the flavors did not work for me. The wagayu steak was phenomenal as was the beet salad, but the crab gnocchi left much to be desired and the es cargot was a much larger portion than necessary. The highlight of the meal for me was the beverage pairing. Every craft cocktail I was served was perfectly balanced, and beautifully garnished. I will try this restaurant again for their regular menu & definitely their cocktails.

We made our reservation for early New Years Eve, thinking that watching the sun set would be a beautiful way to end the year... Well, our idea was rained out, but the incredible 5-course meal, and especially the paired cocktails to go with each course, made this one of the most memorable dinners we've have in many years! The innovative menu was outstanding in every regard, but the optional cocktails - a different 3-ounce creation to go with each course - was an incredibly successful surprise! We've had wine pairings in the past, but these cocktails were a much better idea. Each drink complimented its course amazingly well! Kudos to the chef/kitchen for coming up with an innovative, exquisitely executed New Years Eve menu! Plus, it turns out that watching rain from the Top of the Rock is as much fun as watching a sunset!

Very limited menu for a place that has a such a nice setting - you get the impression that because the view is so nice that you do not come for the food.
I ordered the duck that was recommended to be cooked at medium rare and found it tasted like a half cooked chicken breast. The taste was so ordinary I could not believe the price I paid for it.
We went on our 44th wedding anniversary for someplace special but I was disappointed and would have picked another place. We mentioned that it was our anniversary and expected a special evening but got something less than the routine eating out experience.
We would have been so much better off just going to Texas Roadhouse, had a good steak dinner and saved about $100 and not tip a valet.
Sincerely.

Our reservation was the last time on Christmas day. Things were relatively fine but the prime rib carving station was out of beef!! Out of beef? The grilled chicken was too dry to eat. Salads good, great Salmon and a good variety of courses. The clean up began while we were still eating. (it was a buffet) The staff was very pleasant. We had been here before for an evening dinner and it was very good which is why we came back for Christmas. One of our party was on a walker which they put out of the way at our request. But they gave it to someone else and we got back a differnt walker. Either that or someone damaged the folding mechanism. Not happey about that. The person called the restaurant to inquire about it.. No return call. Yet. If you are OK with overpriced buffet food just for the ambiance, go here. The view is very nice.

Went for Christmas dinner and was happy with the overall ambiance of the place.
The food was very good for a buffet and included King Crab and Shrimp, as well as
Roast Beef, Ham, and Turkey, as well as lots of sides, a great salad, and charcuterie,
lots of small "petit fore" type desserts.
For $75 a piece it was insulting to be charged a "LARGE PARTY TIP" of 18% added
right to the bill.!!
I paid it, instead of leaving a 20% plus tip, per my usual.

We had the Christmas Day buffet here and I cannot commend the staff enough for making this an exceptionally special meal in all regards. The quality of the food was outstanding, particularly the carved meats and wonderful desserts. The very fair price also included all-you-can-eat crab legs, shrimp and bottomless mimosas. We sat outside next to a heater and enjoyed the expansive views of the Valley while William and Guillermo provided the best possible service -- refilling drinks, clearing plates and checking in regularly to make sure everything was perfect. A manager came by at one point as well. The employees here went above and beyond to make sure our Christmas was a complete delight, and we can't thank them enough for making our Christmas one to remember.

It was our Christmas Eve dinner with the family . The first table they gave us has ants crawling over the top of the table. They told us that they have had problems with ants and they would give us another table. Sort of icky start to celebrate Christmas Eve. Our waiter was wonderful our appetizer was unbelievable, however our dinner was over cooked. For the ants and over cooked food I would not suggest eating dinner there. The view was amazing.

I will start out with the positives... the valet staff was very friendly and helpful with my mother-in-law, who has mobility issues. The view is outstanding and our waiter did a good job. The negatives... the food was definitely not the quality that would support the prices that they are charging for it. The Halibut was $41 and smelled fishy, like not fresh fishy. Soup was way over salted and not hot when served... it is also more of a cup of soup than a bowl. The duck was had a sort of spongy texture. I hope that they can work on their food, as I want to love this place but will not pay the price they are charging for the food they are serving...

Great city view. Attentive wait staff. Food choices were higher end. Accompanying those choices were creative combinations of flavors and spices - not all combinations were enjoyable to our palate. We did enjoy the sriracha/bacon infused brussel sprouts and the potato-cheese soup. The meats were done nicely (wagu short rib and roast duck) but we found the added plated flavors not to our liking (goat cheese for the short rib and cherry puree for the duck - both easily pushed to the side). We also tried a side of wild mushrooms and found it a little too unusual. Overall a positive experience for an anniversary.

My husband and I made reservations for our anniversary. When we arrived they had a beautiful table out on the patio for us. Unfortunately, even in Arizona it can be chilly in December! Although they did try to move a heating lamp closer, it didn’t seem to help. We ended up going inside and they seated us at a table with not such a great view which was disappointing. The service was a little slow considering it wasn’t too busy for a Monday night. We enjoyed the visit and the food. They also forgot to pack up one of our favorite dishes that we weren’t able to finish.

I’m a try it at least once type of person. The only reason I’d go back here is for the view. I’m not sure if they were short staffed but it took about an 1.5 hours for us to get our order placed and food. I had the roasted chicken which was delicious and juicy. It was a good portion size for myself. However, my boyfriend had the duck which consisted of two small pieces. I ended up giving him half of my chicken because he was still hungry. The bottle of wine was overpriced. The crème brûlée was cold but tasted good either way. For the price we paid I just expected more out of this place.
