We went to A Different Point of View on my sister's romantic recommendation. We expected to pay for the view (and did and it was well worth it). The food was surprisingly good. The service was even better. Lenny and Brian were a great team. We felt like their only guests in the middle of a busy dinning room. We... More

Food was phenomenal and the views from up there are amazing!! The waiter was quite pushy. We were trying to have a relaxing dinner and he wouldn't leave us alone. Always asking if we looked at the menu and would just interrupt our conversation over and over for nothing of any importance. Servers should be better at reading their tables.

Our friends regularly dine at the Pointe for the Christmas Evening Buffet and this was the second time that we joined them, the first time was in 2015. Based on our experience both times, we will not be... More

The place has a nice ambience and the food is varied and quite tasty. Portions seemed small. We did not eat at the top overlooking the city but rather had a quiet rustic booth.

We had a special fixed price menu for New Years Eve. That dinner entitled us to a free entrance to the New Years Eve Celebration in the Terrace Room-with the Hamptons Band-a great live band that played all of the songs you would want to hear and dance to. Great food, and overall, just a great experience.

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for many, many years ever since it first opened..The car ride up to the very top is rather unique for this area and is much of the fun... We have always considered the Different Pointe as our "special celebration" and "take the out-of-towners to" restaurant of choice..The view from the... More

Description
Poised 1,800 feet above the Valley of the Sun, Different Pointe of View offers guests breathtaking views second only to the outstanding regional American cuisine that features fresh local and organic ingredients. The restaurant's mountaintop location and floor to ceiling windows provide stunning views of the desert landscape, the city's twinkling lights in the distance and Arizona's brilliant sunsets. No restaurant in the state has a longer streak of consecutive AAA four-diamond awards and Sunset Magazine named it one of the top 10 mountaintop restaurants in the nation. Valley residents have come for years to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, romantic evenings or just treat themselves to one of the most unique Arizona experiences. The Terrace Room Lounge, next to the restaurant, features one of the largest patios and a nine foot fire pit on the cliff side
