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

This was our second visit to the Pointe Restaurant. The previous visit was in 2009 when we were over the moon with the service and the food. Well we could not believe it but the service and the food was just super and even better than our last visit. Like previous reviewers the view from the restaurant is just breath... More

What can I say,if you are in Arizona you should spend a dinner at this restaurant. Show up before your reservation to enjoy a glass of wine in the lounge. You will enjoy a view that is breathtaking. We watched the sunset and then the city lights filled the night sky. The staff goes out of their way to make... More

Loved the staff - thanks Darin. Most people are here for the view over Phoenix as well as the food. We took the tasting menu with wine - not cheap but it was a special occasion. Four wine pairings were well done and none were disappointing. House butters and dips were tasty but the bread was poor - baguette tasted... More

Since it was Restaurant Week, we thought what a wonderful way to have dinner at the Different Point of View. From the moment that we were greeted to the end of our dinner everything was splendid. The food was delicious and not your every day menu. The dessert was to die for ...yummy. But what made it perfect was the... More

We were there on a business trip and had a group banquet here. The view is fantastic, but don't try to walk up to restaurant. Take the shuttle up. Food was very good and the view fantastic!

My family and I celebrated my Grandparents 65th Wedding Anniversary on Wednesday at the Different Pointe of View's Terrace Lounge. What an absolutely incredible evening we had!

The wait before dinner was on the outside deck overlooking the Tapatio valley. The view was breathtaking and improved as dusk turned to night. Try to arrive early, around 5:30 to get the best seat on the deck. Also, your best option for a great view at dinner is to make a reservation. When this place gets booked up, it... More
