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

The view is fantastic, of course, but there are several other reasons not to miss this place. We found this place through Trip Advisor (#7 out of 180+ restaurants in Phoenix). But had not visited as we thought it would be too expensive and formal. Were we ever wrong! Here is the deal, they have a... read more

This restaurant has many outstanding attributes including an incredible view because it sits atop a very high cliff and overlooks all of Phoenix. The chef puts out fabulous, creative, food that is not only delicious, but is eye candy. The menu has something for everyone except there are no appetizers suitable for table sharing. BUT-we were very disappointed that the... More

Ok, so I'm jaded, I've been going to DPOV for some 25-30 years. This resturant and I have a history.. It began when I was in my late teens and Erasmo "Razz" Kamnitzer was at the helm. He was a major influence to my culinary aspirations since his storefront on Cave Creek Rd when I was a kid. Then came... More

Most places with a nice view don't have the atmosphere or quality food and service to go with it. Different Pointe of View has it all. I took my fiance here for her birthday and it was a perfect evening.

This restaurant has it all. The food is great, and it is very well presented. The service was first class. It was one of the best meals I have ever had, if indeed, not the best.

We were here on a Tuesday night and did enjoy the food and the view. The food was well prepared and delicious. However the restaurant seems to be really trading on its views. We sat down at 6:30 for what we thought would be a quiet romantic dinner but the restaurant really trades on large parties from the Hilton associated... More

We went to eat dinner and we got turned away due to no reservation. When we asked to be put in a cancellation list, we were told no. We went down to get drinks at the bar. After waiting for some time (maybe 5 people there) the bartender put very very little alcohol in my $12.00 drink and was very... More
