Wasn’t as good as expected for the expense. Set menu for Valentine’s Day which was fine but servers were not well informed about it. Brought wrong course selection twice during meal, did not ask my wife how she wanted her petite filet and it was very rare, and the duck breast was a bit dry.

We had several servers and seemed no one was in charged. Had to ask for drinks several times

They were out of chicken and other menu items on a Monday at 7:00 pm.

Below average

I don't mind paying a lot for a good meal...never a bad idea to splurge on ourselves! But this one just left us hanging. Peanut soup had really great flavor but was incredibly salty. Beet salad was wonderful. We both had the halibut (which one of us will always order if available). I grew up in a restaurant, eating halibut almost weekly. This was a small piece, overcooked, and again, very salty. Carrot cake special dessert was, hmmmm, very 'trendy'? Very small and more like a fruitcake. I'm all about trying new things, and I don't mind small portions if they leave you wanting more. This disappointed. Service was impeccable!

 (Dallas)·Dined on February 9, 2018

This place has the potential to be magnificent, but unfortunately falls a bit short. The view at sunset is outstanding for sure. We were seated close to the fireplace, which was lovely. They do not have a bar, which would have been nice. The food was good, and the menu is very interesting, but the wine list was short. One of my primary criteria for rating a nice restaurant is the length of time from being seated to receiving a drink. This place took longer than expected.
Also, my husband ordered a martini with Belevedere vodka and they only had enough for one drink, which they made incorrectly - so he had to have a different brand. Perhaps we just visited on an off night (it was Friday). I would only go back if I was staying in the adjoining hotel.

Two out of five meals were not prepared properly and it took a long time to correct. Everyone was done eating by the time the meals were redone. They were more concerned about bigger parties. Not a place I’d go again. Very disappointing way to end a business meeting.

My spouse and I enjoyed a meal on a Sunday evening at this restaurant. We were seated at a small table by the large windows. It was after sunset and the views of the city to the north were very pleasant.
We enjoyed our meals, artfully presented and tasteful. Our waiter was pleasant and very accommodating to our preferences, as well as knowledgeable on the wines that were offered.

We recommend this restaurant for its unique views, style and cuisine.

Been here several times over the last few years. Great location and usually above average food. We both had the filet this time, which was seasoned with too much salt. We did not comment to our server as we have learned that sending meals back really ruins our evening. The meat cuts were not the quality expected. We get better cuts at Whole Foods. We will likely not return for the value.

Overall I was very unsatisfied; although the views are spectacular , the portion sizes were extremely small and the food quality was poor. On a 6 person table, no order was cooked to the desired temp. Soup was salty, ect...$500.00 and I had to make a snack at home because I was still hungry....would not go back.

Top of the Rock is a real treat in Phoenix. It has absolutely stunning views and is a sanctuary in the desert in the city! Just entering the grounds makes you take a deep breath and appreciate the true beauty of the Southwest. The food was fantastic, too!!! It is definitely a perfect spot for a special occasion!

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS OVERLOOKING THE VALLEY AND DELICIOUS MENU SELECTION. WE HAD THE LOBSTER RAVIOLI, THE HALIBUT, THE CHICKEN AND THE DUCK AND ALL WERE PERFECTLY PREPARED AND PRESENTED. OUR SERVER WAS ACCOMMODATING AND FRIENDLY. THE PRICES ARE A BIT STEEP - AND WHEN WE ASKED FOR A DECENT "POUR" ON A SECOND SCOTCH, WE GOT UPCHARGED. GIVEN WHAT WE WERE PAYING FOR THE REST OF THE MEAL, THAT SHOULD HAVE JUST BEEN GIVEN FOR FREE.

Made a reservation through OpenTable & our table was next to the window, best view! Excellent & unique food! Very quick service. The thought of "when will the food arrive?" never crossed our minds. We were very pleased with the flow of how our food arrived. The chicken donuts were amazing & perfect spicy kick, highly recommend this appetizer! Plus, the bread basket after our appetizer & before our main course was an excellent touch! My boyfriend & I were celebrating our 7th Anniversary, & our waiter paid for our dessert as a gift/treat to us. All around great experience.

For a restaurant that is supposed to be very good, it was, at best, mediocre. Don’t get me wrong, the service was very good and the food was good, I just expect something better for a restaurant of this caliber and these prices.

 (Calgary)·Dined on January 14, 2018

Because of my specific dietary needs, I checked the menu beforehand and made sure there were options available for me.
Unfortunately, the menu changed within the two weeks I checked & the two options I had were no longer available. The menu states that there are no substitutions. The waiter boasted that the chef was creative & that’s why the menu changes. However, the chef wasn’t able to accommodate me. For an extremely pricey restaurant, with a creative chef, I would expect I would have options. We left after a drink and salad, disappointed, as we came for my 40th birthday dinner.

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!

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.

Wow what a view! I couldn't have picked a better date spot on our first night in Phoenix. My fiance and I enjoyed a charcuterie plate and cocktails during happy hour. We loved the food, drinks and dramatic views so much that we stayed for dinner! If you're looking for stunning views and great cocktails in a romantic setting, look no further.

 (Toronto)·Dined on December 31, 2017

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.
