On our first night staying on the Phoenix mountainside at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, we were spoiled during dinner at the Different Pointe of View restaurant. For more than 25 years, Different Pointe of View has been one of the hottest dining destinations in the Phoenix area. The amazing views from the terrace area 1,800 feet above the valley are just as impressive as the food prepared by Chef Anthony DeMuro. While the entrance and the bar/inside area of the restaurant is beautiful with incredible views,
I highly recommend you enjoy you dining experience outside!
Amazing food like the mushroom ravioli and the secret recipe lobster bisque, combined with feeling like you’re dining on top of the world, have earned the Different Pointe of View the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award 23 yrs in a row!
The only way I can describe the food and the menu here is that I honestly wanted to try EVERY SINGLE ITEM on the menu. Since everyone felt the same, Chef indulged us and sent out so many samplings that I’m pretty sure I was stuffed even before my Halibut Cheeks arrived.
Everything I put into my mouth, I not only liked, but LOVED. You can tell that Chef pours his passion into the food and seriously, I’m positive you can not go wrong with anything this man makes. This is easily the best food I have ever eaten. EVER.
If you’re a Phoenix local, or you like to plan ahead for your vacations, make sure you look into their monthly special called the Insiders View Dinner. This exclusive treat happens once a month and is available for just 12 guests. The restaurant flies in a new wine maker each month and uses their wine as inspiration to create a special dinner. After a welcome reception, Chef will come to your table to create 4 courses paired with 4 wines for just $99! These dinners are always on Friday night and occur January thru May and Sept thru November. Just give them a call to reserve your spot!
After dining like queens, we gathered around the fire pit at The Terrace Room, on the second floor of the restaurant to relax and roast some “adult” marshmallows. *TIP* These are actually house made marshmallows infused with liquor – offered complimentary with any alcohol purchase on terrace any time!
Mixing a little fire and ice, I had a margarita Popsicle with my Grand Marnier flavored marshmallow. With a full tummy, a view of the Phoenix skyline, and my favorite girlfriends, the night was the perfect start to our Arizona adventure!
