I rate this as average because of two reasons, the service was SO SLOW and also my daughter and I rated the food (we ordered the oyster appetizer, the venison and the scallops) a 7 out of 10. Maybe on a different night the service would have been better (although they weren't crowded when we were there) and also different... More

Went there for a business dinner, really stunning views ( a different point of view indeed). Food was very good and service was hospitable. It's best to choose a seat outside so as to get the best experience. Overalls a great experience and would like to go there back again

While staying at the Tapatio cliffs resort, we decided to treat our young girls (ages 6 and 8) to a "fancy" dinner out. Our waiter, Luis, was fantastic! He offered helpful suggestions for my picky children, took time to interact with all of us and share information about the restaurant and area, and demonstrated for my youngest how to properly...

This place is WORTH the drive and the price. We missed the sunset by about 30 minutes but I imagine it would be lovely. Sit outside on the terrance if you can, but the inside is quite fancy too! Order the filet mignon you will not be dissappointed. I promise. I had the scallops and it was tastey too but... More

We found this restaurant by word of mouth. The view was even better than anticipated with a great outdoor space. We ordered several apps as well as entrees and dessert and everything was delicious. Of special note, after choosing our bottle of wine the manager came out to chat about wine and even let us try a comparable wine as... More

I had pork tenderloin, which was good. Wife had lobster, which was tough and rubbery, difficult to cut. Grilled brocco-flower was tough, too. Dessert was fantastic!

This place is very good for a romantic night. We arrived an hour early to enjoy the sunset and have a few drinks. It was hot out but it was reasonable on the outdoor patio because the view was so good looking over all of Phoenix. Our meal was good (grilled fish and a beef dish.) The server was slammed... More

We visited here on a wonderfully clear warm evening the ambience and food were impressive with the ever exuberant American wait staff at our beck and call, The views across the city lights were impressive. The only challenge was the massive uphill hike from the reception desk to the restaurant - but I believe there is a shuttle for those... More

We had drinks on the outdoor patio overlooking Phoenix, what a view. Dinner was just wonderful, I had salmon and it was perfect. We split 3 desserts, they were small so it worked out really well.
