“Outstanding location with views”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

The food was innovative, tasty and well prepared. The tastes mingled together well with many drink options from cocktails to wine. The view during dinner was outstanding, especially the sunset. Highly recommend the salmon--it was perfect!

“Creative dining with a great sunset”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

If you are staying at the Buttes or just in the neighborhood, Top of Rock Restaurant is an experience you won't want to miss. Visit this architecturally beautiful restaurant close to sunset for an exquisite view of the surrounding area (see attached pictures). Although the menu options are rather limited, the choices are well prepared, creative, fresh and and delicious. The fillet minion was fantastic. The Top of The Rock burger was a brilliant blend of western and classic American food. This burger was topped with tamale, bacon and egg (extra add-in). The citrus chopped salad was delicious and refreshing, and had a bit of a south west kick to it. The chile Relleno was unique tasting but very good. It was served cool. The chihuahua cheese is more like a goat or farm cheese. Calypso Pork and Beans was also tasty. We ended the night by splitting on delicious Desert, a chocolate and hazelnut delicacy. Great, attentive service, the food came out at a comfortable pace. Nice, comfortable atmosphere, which would be great for friends or a romantic date. I'd dine here again if I have the chance.

“Great food, service & views”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Went for dinner last night and had a great experience, from the cucumber martini, through the banana cream pie for dessert. We finished off the night by watching the sunset out on the patio, which has an amazing view. Peter and all of the staff made the evening top rate. We'll definitely be going back!

“Romantic but not Fussy”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Spectacular views of Phoenix skyline, especially at sunset. Food was creative, delicious., and good value for what you get. Service was very attentive and polite. Like that you can dress up here or not because guests of the hotel come as they are.
