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

“Someone else's point of view!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

While I applaud the view, I can't really applaud the service or the food! My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary. I had made a reservation and aksed for a nice romantic and quiet table. We were 'hearded' off to a quiet corner where there must not have been a server or for that fact an able body to take care of us! At least we had ourselves to keep us company. If all you want is a view go here but if you want an experience, go somewhere else!!!

“Great view and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Our company rented out the top room for a work reception. The menu was limited to a beef dish, salmon dish, pasta dish, and passed hors d'ourves. All of the food served was outstanding! The view while dining is almost as spectacular as the food.

“Celebrate with Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Our family decided to celebrate a 98th birthday with a visit to Different Pointe of View. What a fortuitous choice! From the van ride up the mountain to our trio of servers, fabulous food and the specially prepared birthday cake, the night could not be better. The food matched the spectacular night view of Phoenix. All those in our large family party enjoyed the evening and are already planning for a 99th yr celebration at this fine venue.
