Always wonderful dining experience. The view is amazing ! Five star service. I do miss the action in the bar area with the TVs playing local sporting events. It was nice to hear the excitement from the main dining area. The chicken donuts are unique starter delicious.

Everything would have been great if our waiter didn't keep forgetting us. We w ed re sitting outside where the view was incredible. The food was great when we eventually got it. We felt like we were waiting on our waiter. The guy bussing the tables came by to us more than our waiter did. At one point we were waiting for the check and had finished our meal and asked for it before the table opposite ours and he brought out their check before ours after we had to ask for it again. We have eaten there 3x. We got engaged there and we just felt that the waitstaff should have been more attentive to ALL the customers. We were pleasant to everyone around our table. My husband even offered to take pictures for others who wanted to remember the view. Needless to say we may not return for a while.

View was nice. Food was okay and the service and the front desk was poor. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and we wish we would have gone somewhere else. Good place for an average dinner but not for a special night out.

Lovely rooms, spectacular outside terrace. Food was creative and tasty and the service was wonderful.
My only issue was it was a challenge to access the elevator for my disabled husband and it was equally hard to get out on our return to the first level. Otherwise it was a great choice.

Simple cesar salad tasted awful. They tried to make it gourmet and ended up crappy. Super spicy, watery. Yuk. This is not a hard dish to make...
Appetizer was a meat cheese board. Honey comb was on there for some reason. All the meat and cheese had honey residue on it. Yuk again. Someone needs to tell them to just serve food.

This restaurant gets high marks for the views and the service. Sorry to say that of all the restaurants at The Buttes, this is the most expensive and the food is the least tasty. We ate there ONLY because we were staying at the hotel and didn't feel like going out and fighting Phoenix traffic. We ate at Top of the Rock last year, and we didn't like it then. Not much has changed.

Food is very good, and while pricey is plentiful. The shrimp in peanut sauce appetizer could serve 1 or 2 as an entree!
However, the service was not good. Three times we were told there would be bread before it ever appeared. We ordered a bottle of wine, it was the first time in a restaurant when I had to pour it myself, no one refilled our glasses or checked to see if they needed refilling. Do sit outside and watch the sun set, otherwise the indoor seating is like a 60s cafeteria. We had to ask four times if someone could turn our heat lamp on (other people had theirs turned on). The wood tables were terribly stained...maybe some linen would be in order. This place needs direction.

The view is excellent! But that is all I can say went well. The service was super slow, the food was just OK, which is NOT OK for the price charged, and the drinks were terrible. Our waiter said he wanted to make us happy, but he disappeared for 15-20 minutes at a time. It took 20 minutes to bring 2 drinks. Then ordering was almost painfully long. Our side dishes arrived after we had finished our entrees and the plates were cleared. This is totally unacceptable for a higher-end restaurant with high prices. The taste of the food was just OK. They really like their "homemade" spicy sauce, which appeared on several of our dishes, and was so spicy that we could not eat it. After the first dish had that sauce we asked for any sauce on the side afterward. Such a disappointment! Don't bother - there are many other restaurants in the area.

Majestic views of the valley atop the Buttes. Casual dress, however the atmosphere is up scale so if you are wearing shorts you might feel a little out of place (maybe not on the patio). The food is excellent, and your portion is very generous. I don't know if you can, if possible select the patio or in front of one of the glass walls.

It was amazing ambiance, service outside was less than expected for such an amazing restaurant. We didn't get our drinks or appetizers until well after others that were seated and ordered after us. Then our steaks were way overdone, but overall a great place. We'd go back if ever in the area again. Just hopefully will have a different server. Beautiful views, a bit overpriced

My husband and I spent our last night in Phoenix at this wonderful restaurant. We had read great reviews about it on Trip Advisor and so decided to go. Our waiter AJ was friendly, attentive and gave us excellent service throughout our meal. We were given a small basket of cornbread, focaccia, sourdough and savory whipped butter -- so yummy!-- that arrived before our appetizer. We shared the Thai shrimp, which was so flavourful and had a generous serving of 10 or 12 shrimp My husband ordered the pork tenderloin and I ordered the Arctic char. All the food was beautifully presented, which added to our sensory enjoyment. Most importantly, the food tasted fresh, was perfectly seasoned and was so satisfying! We ate our food looking at the amazing view and left the restaurant feeling happy and well fed.

The only problem was with the hostess who seated us. I had a reservation, there were at least 10 booths/tables empty yet she asked if we’d be able to take a tall bistro table by the entrance. She said that was what was “available”. I pointed out the empty tables and booths and she walked away to see what she could find. While she was away a second hostess approached and immediately took us to a great booth. The other booths and tables remained empty the entire time we dined. Not a good beginning to a $140 dinner but our waitress, who was outstanding, more than made up for it.

The Top Of Rock was a overall very pleasant experience, the chicken and doughnuts is delicious it might sound weird to order but I promise you that you won’t regret ordering it, for our entree the Arctic char was delicious but unfortunately the roasted chicken’s sauce was super salty, with that being said the side Mac and cheese was alright lacking a bit of flavor but the mushrooms side was delicious. The lady Neysa I believe was her name was a kind and sweet woman who answered all our questions, talked to us, gave us recommendations and her alone made our experience wonderful.

Looking out at the view in front of you is fabulous especially as the sun goes down and darkness surrounds you. Our wait staff did an excellent job of taking care of us and we enjoyed our time at the restaurant. However, the food was disappointing. We were disappointed with the restaurant's choices and the food seemed lacking in seasoning to bring it alive. Our halibut was cooked to perfection it just was lacking in seasoning. The meat of the short rib dinner was very good but the polenta was not worth eating. Not sure if we would try again. Wonderful place to dine but the food needs some tweaking.

We loved the restaurant and most of the food. We had the chicken and doughnuts wagyu short ribs, ny strip, Mac and cheese, and the chocolate cake. The only thing that I wouldn’t order again is the wagyu short ribs! It was under seasoned, oily, and they forgot the mushrooms. I barely could eat it. But the ny strip and everything else was beyond delicious and we can’t wait to go back.

The ambiance and view were terrific. The property was relaxing to wander around before and after dinner. The service got off to a rather slow start and we were left alone for 15 minutes before someone got our drink order. Once past that, the service was pretty good. The bussers were amazing! For the price and the setting the food was surprisingly "ok". Perhaps my expectations were raised by the setting. The duck was pretty gristley and fatty though the meat was cooked quite nicely. The sauce/garbonzo/meat combo almost worked but was kind of bland. The cobbler was burnt and bitter near the bottom and the consistency of oatmeal.

The view here is fabulous. We had been here before and were looking forward to the evening. Our seats were outstanding. Our waiter, not so much. He took 10 minutes to get to us to take our order. There was only one other couple there. Our meal took an hour. Our appetizers were not served; he forgot them. I had a chicken breast (comes served alone/no side), hubs had a steak with a side of asparagus and we had 1 drink each. Our bill was over $107. The view is worth a return for happy hour but we will never dine there again. The service was absolutely the worst we have had as far as a timely delivery of anything we ordered. It took nearly 10 minutes to get a wine list. I decided not to order a glass because I figured I would finish my chicken before it arrived. We were just done with that place.

I had been planning to take my girlfriend her for the past 3 months for our first Valentine’s Day. We ended up leaving because the lack of customer service. We originally were going to be seated outside (due to weather we had to sit indoors which we totally understood and was ok with) 20 min after our scheduled time they stared to try to seat us. The table turned out to not be ready so we sat back down to wait. After another 5 or 10 min we go to our table we’re we are not greeted for over 15 min. The tables around us also were upset and one man told the waiter he was not interested and to cancel his order. A few min after the same host that sat us called me and told me that our table was ready (even though she already sat us over 15 min prior). The host stand near our table had energy drinks and rags out. We left and no one said anything and just watched us leave. As we were walking my girlfriend triped down the stairs and the valet worker ran right past us and didn’t even ask if she was ok. I am embarrassed that I talked this place up so much to my girlfriend to take on our first Valentine’s date. For a place I was going to spend a minimum of $200 if not more I’m shocked this is the experience we had.
