We had the lobster bisque which was superb and then the special which was braised short ribs which were very tender and flavourful. The menu had many gluten free choices that were clearly marked GF and when our waiter found out that I was gluten intolerant he surprised me with a substitute of raw vegetables to dip into the toppings...

Stayed with friends in the valley and they took us the Different Pointe of View for dinner on a Saturday night. The place was packed (reservations a must) and the view was amazing. Phoenix lights up at night and this is a great place to see it all! The food was top quality and tasty, but not amazing. Very good... More

While we didn't get our preferred time when making Thanksgiving reservations over a month out (they sell out almost 2 months out!), we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere, spectacular views AND the feast. I really appreciated the demi cups provided for the lobster bisque (GREAT taste and using demi cup, perfect size!). Even the desserts were all done in petite, so... More

I was very anxious to dine here. I must admit, a restaurant with a view is most appealing to me. With that said, the restaurant itself is beautiful and the view is most incredible. Truly amazing is an understatement. The restaurants atmosphere is most inviting as well. The food however, was most disappointing. We had Thanksgiving dinner here and with... More

What a wonderful place, the views are the best in the whole city of Phoenix, no where else is higher, food is a bit pricey but honestly wife and I spent more at other chain restaurants and this is genuine gourmet food.

Great place to take out of town guests or for a romantic dinner. Expansive patio with great views of the mountains and city. Large windows indoors for an equally wonderful view. Exquisite food and impeccable service. Be sure to make reservations well ahead of time. Also sometimes the patio is closed for private events.

Wow. Sunset on the patio surrounded by torches and fire pits followed by dinner up another floor to a restaurant with a view to die for. This is a gorgeous gem of a restaurant. It's pricey, but a huge treat. My husband and I both had the lobster bisque to start and it was sinful! It's rich and I'm sure... More

We have been to this place 4 or 5 times over as many years, and have never been disappointed. Even though we don't stay at the hotel anymore, we always make time for an evening here.. This time, an early November evening, timed to coincide with sunset. We sat outside on the terrace with delicious cocktails and with the fire... More

The view here is amazing. No wonder it was voted the best "mountain top" restaurant in the US. The food was also amazing! We had the lobster and it was done to perfection. Appetizers were ok but did not bowl us over. For desert we had the creme brulee and it was very good. Service was over the top and... More

We made a reservation to coincide with sunset. Our server, Robert, recommended wonderful dishes for our kids -- both budding foodies -- to try. They loved everything! After a long day, Robert was kind to send us back to our room with a to-go bag of delicious dessert. Such a lovely evening!

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
