Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort Phoenix
Discover Different Pointe of View, one of the most romantic restaurants in Arizona for your next date night.
Valentine’s Day is all about love, romance and…stress. Plan the wrong date location and your romantic night can go from hero to zero in the blink of an eye. Thankfully, with a reservation at Phoenix’s most scenic restaurant, Different Pointe of View, romance is in the cards.
Located at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, this fine dining eatery is the most consecutively awarded AAA Four Diamond restaurant in the Valley. Everything about Different Pointe of View is classic, from the white tablecloths and impeccable service to an ambiance that exudes romance. For more than 40 years, the restaurant has been considered one of the most scenic and romantic dining spots in Phoenix. Different Pointe of View’s Executive Chef Alex Knezevic deftly combines long-standing favorites like lobster bisque and crème brulé with modern dishes with Asian, Mediterranean and French flairs.
Book ahead and request a table by the window to take advantage of the stellar view. Then, arrive early to enjoy a glass of bubbles and bask in the sunset glow on Different Pointe of View’s terrace before dinner. On a recent visit to the mountaintop restaurant, my husband and I started the meal by sharing a chilled blue crab and avocado crab cake. The dish was paired with a glass of St. Francis Chardonnay, which brought out the sweetness of the crab.
For the main course, I stuck to the seafood theme with a pan-roasted Chilean sea bass partnered with earthy trumpet mushrooms and a fresh truffled spring pea purée. The expertly cooked fish melted in my mouth. My husband chose the grilled prime beef filet with duck fat, fingerling potatoes and asparagus. We finished the memorable meal with the classic crème brulé. It was a perfect sweet treat to share as I only like the burnt sugar topping, and he only likes the crème.
For Valentine’s Day, Chef Knezevic hinted that a special menu with traditional romance foods like oysters, a tomahawk steak to share and chocolate-covered strawberries could highlight the menu.
