Seeped in history, the Landmark restaurant is truly a Phoenix landmark. Located in a building that served as a church, a college, and offices for an insurance company, the Landmark Restaurant is a little slice of Phoenix’s past. But don’t come here just for a history lesson. The menu is filled with succulent steaks, delicate seafood, and classic comfort food such as Beef Stroganoff, Stuffed Meatloaf, and Grilled Ham. A dining experience at the Landmark is not complete without the “salad room”—an entire room converted to a salad bar, featuring both traditional and eclectic, hearty and healthy, and hot and cold “salad” fare. Entrance to the room is included with any entrée and is also available separately—one trip could easily be as a meal in itself.

Nestled amid the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort, Different Point of View offers a stunning setting and even more stunning views. The cuisine is creative and inventive, thanks to Executive Chef Ivan Flowers’s mixture of American and International flavors. The dinner menu changes seasonally, while a nightly tasting menu changes several times a night. The menu is partially sourced from the restaurant’s own vegetable garden located on the hotel property. If the food and views weren’t enough, an award-winning wine list offers over 1000 wines, all cellared on premise. This is a place to treat yourself, and to celebrate the grandest of occasions.
