Great view of the valley and that part was awesome. The service was good, but the food was not good at all. They sell a piece of Halibut for $40 and it was very dry and tasted old. The Chef should be embarrassed to plate such garbage! At the end of the day, Top of The Rock is just a hotel restaurant. Don't waste your time for dinner!

Food was just OK. Slow night but very slow service. Dessert took 45 minutes and was wrong when it came out. Valet service was MIA. I had to fetch my keys from valet desk myself and get car, as well as a few other people.

The service was very poor. The restaurant was not very busy and they completely forgot to give us an entree. When we reminded the server who never checked on us after dinner was served. They gave us an appetizer while we waited for the entree but by the time we got the missing entree everyone was finished with their dinner. The server was very casual about the mistake and blamed the kitchen. The food was excellent but the error truly ruined our dinner.

Overrated and overpriced place.
NY eve limited/fixed menu - 3 pre-selected dishes.
Asked for well done meat, was told only medium rare is available.
Ordered bottle of sparkling wine from Italy (1 of only 3 sparkling wines in total in the menu), again it was not available in normal size (750ml), was offered couple of tiny ones (120ml) as substitution, twice the price per glass. Decided to order another one local then (from California). It looked very cheap with screw-on cap. Servant spilled it when tried to open it. It came warm, room temperature, they didn't even bother cooling it.
Buffalo meat came over burned, with strong burnt charcoal taste. Not eatable.
View of night city is OK, but nothing close to spectacular.
0 entertainment.
And all of that for the price of 300USD for the family of 3.

Went for New Year's Eve, could not have asked for better service. One slight problem, one of the wygou steaks had a tremendous amount of grissle and fat. They knocked $20.00 off the bill, would have rather had a good steak.

First, we requested outdoor dining and as it was getting chilly a heater was brought over. The heater went out and after 15 minutes of waiting, with nobody coming over, we moved ourselves indoors. During this 15 minutes the only service we received was an introduction and waters brought to the table. Another 10 minutes indoors and we finally got menus. We ordered and got the chicken & donuts. Not as good as I remembered; way too much cream cheese. Our main courses arrived after another 30 minutes. The carbonara was mildly warm with the plate burning hot. The poor server burnt her fingers (she told us) so one would have thought the food would be warm. The steak (and my father is not picky) tasted spoiled so it was sent back. He had a hard time cutting the medium rare meat and I felt horrible for bringing him to get a bad tasting dinner. The view is great but I’ll not be returning here. I’ve visited 4 times over the years and it continues to get worse. Too bad as Tempe really needs some good restaurants.

If you want the best of the best, you find The Top Of The Rock exceeds your expectations in every which way you think. It is one of the most scenic, tastefully decorated place to spoil yourself and your special company. Your gourmet taste buds will be jumping of joy. A MUST in Phoenix. Enjoy!

I was looking for a place for Christmas dinner for a party of eight. My party included 4 adults and 4 children I needed somewhere that would appease so many culinary taste buds. Most venues had a set menu and only one price. I appreciated the child price, even though I think my 13 year old grandson and his cousins ate like the adults. My 1 year old grandson very much enjoyed eating from any plate that passed by him.I’m generally not a fan of buffets but this worked. There was a variety of selections. The staff was very accommodating and professionally, the view was spectacular, and we definitely enjoyed the food selections. Seating was a breeze I would definitely consider the Top of the Rock restaurant in the future for a special occasion.

We were looking forward to a memorable experience for Christmas. I was disappointed. It was like going through any cheap restaurant buffet line and the food was no better, maybe not even as good as some. The price was high for me and I felt we got not much for it. The service was nonexistent and yet you charged me 18% for a tip. The total of the service we received was a refill on water and a pickup of dirty dishes. The views are beautiful but not worth the 175 dollar bill. Sorry to have to say this, but we won't be back.

Had dinner Christmas Eve. The food was cooked perfectly, but they screwed up every order on the table. There were only three and made a mess of it, and this was before getting busy. They gave us desert for the screw up. But when you come to a place like this, ok maybe one order they mess up but all 3?? I feel they need a better way for plate presentation, they should be embarrassed to put those plates in front of customers. We sat by the cooking area over looking the valley, way to close to the cooks it was really starting to get smokey in there. The waiter did a good job fixing the screw up the kitchen was turning out. I am a Platinum member at Marriott and was not impressed how we spent our evening. And one last thing that really got me was someone broke a glass behind us. I saw the lady who was serving tables come out from the side of the kitchen with a broom and dust pan, she stopped by the cooking station put down her broom and dust pan to garnish what plates were ready for pickup. What no gloves or washing of the hands before touching the plates of food?? Not what I thought I would see in a place like this. So what am I NOT seeing???

What made me return to dine there was the view of the Phoenix valley, along with the food. There happened to be an unusual lightning storm all over the valley, which that location proved to be the perfect spot to view the show. Our waiter allowed me to sample a couple of wines before choosing. Truly a great place for dining!

First time dining here and we loved everything! The views are stunning and the food and service were excellent. Our server -William was professional and knowledgable answering our many questions and making suggestions. We decided to start with the crazy sounding savory chicken donuts which were fabulous! For our dinner I had the tuna which was cooked to perfection and so flavorful my guest had the pork tenderloin which was wrapped in bacon and so tender you didn’t even need a steak knife. We also had a side of mushrooms that were delicious. We concluded our wonderful meal with the chocolate olive oil cake which was so moist and rich we were glad we shared it. All in all an absolutely fabulous dining experience we can’t wait to return!

The atmosphere and setting were great. My only complaint was the prime rib was charred and overly seasoned and salty. The other guests that ordered the same dish complained of the same thing - the prime rib was destroyed by grilling it on what appears an open fire like a steak, which is completely the wrong way to cook prime rib. The menu or wait staff should warn people when ordering of how the prime rib will be prepared.

Food was great. View is great. Spent over $370 for dinner for 3 (including a $45 tip) but service was like going to Dennys or IHOP - not at all in line with the rest of the experience. We sat down and announced we were there for a 20th anniversary and the waitress went into a story about her divorce!?!
Difficult to navigate for disabled.
The valet service was also too casual.
Tablecloths would have been a finer touch for the price and the quality of the food.
Went in the evening and the indoor lighting was too bright to see the view well due to reflection in the glass windows. Dimmer lighting would have been better.

For the price we expect a more dignified experience. If you want to be treated well for a first class dining experience then keep looking.
