    The food was very, very good. My steak had the perfect seasoning. However they didn't trim it well enough for me. The lighting in the room is very dim, consequently you can't see your food very well. A couple of time I had a mouthful of fat!! They supplied us with mini flashlights to see the menu. My husband and I used them to see the presentation of our meal when it was served. A little more light would be good. It was our anniversary and they brought out a desert to share. Chocoate Cake... very good.

    Our waiter Steven was excellent....very knowledgeable and great personality. Our party enjoyed the tomato salad as well as the escargot. Our entrees were the sea bass, salmon and the steak au poivre, which were all very good and would definitely recommend. The dining room was beautiful and old Hollywood..... We really enjoyed our evening....

    Both my hubs and I have years of restaurant work experience..him very fine dining and management...It's not that we are trying to be picky..but we have standards we hope are met that are appropriate for the particular dining spot we are in. Mister Parker's is one of our ALL TIME FAVORITES. The ambiance is beyond unique, the staff and menu are at the top of their game. We have been here twice and both times loved learning new things about this hidden gem. Our server, Steven Swanson (had to get his name because he was THAT GOOD) set us up with some great suggestions..everything was perfect and we know how hard that can be...I feel like we will start planning Palm Springs trips just to eat here soon!!!

    The "door" should have said it all. There is no door; just a curtain. If you want to eat in a low ceiling, loud room with no ambiance, this is it. Reminds me of a basement rec room from the '50s. Steak good; risoto ok, nothing else ok. Potatoes cold. Wine selection ridiculous--all "boutique" wines--which to them means wines no one has heard of and over priced. Only thing unique is that you pour it all yourself except that first glass. Waitress never came back to pour any more the entire night. Service non existent.

    This place is amazing from the moment you drive up and see the massive orange entry doors to the time you drive away. Be sure to arrive early or stay late and spend some time wandering around the grounds of the Parker, it is truly a unique resort. When you walk through the curtains into Mr. Parker's it is like stepping into a whole new world, with a very eclectic are collection and music to match. Start off with a cocktail while you settle in and peruse the fun menu, the bartenders know what they are doing. Appetizers and salads are large enough to share, the food is very well prepared, and the deserts are to die for. Service was fantastic and never rushed or intrusive. Overall Mr. Parker's is amazing!

    ...that's how the wine list was divided, but it pretty well covers the entire dinning experience. Our server, Michele was attentive and knowledgable. The menu is small yet eclectic. They went for quality over quantity on the portions but was plenty when we were finished. The oysters with the smokey ponzu and roe were amazing. I definitley want my own order next time. Short ribs are brilliant as is the duck breast. Found the salted carmel overpowered the butterscotch on the pot o creme but the creme anglaise on the chocolate cake made up for it. Dark and sexy space with low light and crazy collection of modern art. Even if it wasn't within walking distance of our home in PS we'd still be back.

    We chose Mr. Parker's because we wanted to check out the lobby and grounds of The Parker. We're from Portland, so when it comes to food, we're very particular and hard to impress. That said, Mr. Parker's is good by Portland standards and excellent by Palm Springs standards. It was expensive ($400 for 4 of us-and we shared 2 appetizers and 2 deserts and a bottle of wine). When they didn't have the wine we ordered, they bumped us up to a nicer bottle at no extra charge, which was nice. The service was pleasant-that is certainly an area where PS has it way over Portland. The decor in Mr. Parker's was nothing that exciting, but I loved the lobby. I'd probably go back again, but I'm not booking my next visit yet.

  • Space is great, food is gross
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/4/2014
    We have eaten here 3 times so I don't think its a fluke. The space is great - great art, great lighting, fun ambience - and the service is excellent - but the food is TERRIBLE. We had the tarragon salad (best thing on the menu - but still mediocre with its weird fried crouton pellets), the mushroom risotto (undercooked), the brussels sprouts (VERY undercooked), and the gnocci (gnocci? they were tater tots). The only saving grace was the bread and butter and the butterscotch pudding (which was paired with an inappropriately tart sorbet that would have been great on its own but clashed with the pudding). Its convenient to eat here if you're staying at the Parker but even so, we will be going elsewhere to eat next time.

    Really good idea to have little flashlights available for reading the menu, the atmosphere and decor is great but not so great for older eyes to read easily. Our server, Stephen, was delightful and well prepared to answer our questions about food preparation and wine choices. The quality of the food, presentation, service and ambiance justify the impressive price. These are the kind of prices charged for this level restaurant throughout the country.

    We tried Mr. Parker because we heard that Chef Herve from Cork Tree had moved here. We tried the Steak Au Poivre. It was a small NY strip that was not prime beef and priced at $42. The sauce was good, but the meat wasn't. The salads had only a hint of dressing...wish they had more. The dessert we sampled (a strawberry crepe) was quite good. Food was very slow coming out of the kitchen for some reason, though we observed other tables that were being served more promptly. Otherwise, service was friendly. The wine list is OK...a few nice choices, but most a bit over-priced. Given the value proposition here, we found the restaurant to be nothing special.

    One of the best fancy restaurants in Palm Springs. The food is modern high end French. The room is beautiful and the setting completely out of this world. Think late sixties artwork on wood paneled walls with mirrored ceilings and very low lighting. It is unlike anywhere else and wonderfully unique for Palm Springs. It is worth the high cost and I highly recommend.

    Despite Starwood ownership, the Parker Hotels retain the sheer wackyness of their French heritage. Everything is just a bit weird, but in a calculated way. If you go right, Parker goes left. Going left is also overpriced, but if what you pay for is the fine staff that delivers service at a high standard, you can forgive the silly decor. And so it is with Mister Parker's, a Weimarish room done in post-modern eccentric---nothing goes with anything and they like it that way. The chef is creating sophisticated food, and the floor staff levitates. I can live with the white ceramic greyhound and vacuous Pousette-Dart prints. Bring me the short rib.

    I really like this place. I enjoy the food and the ambience but I do feel that 22 dollars for two medium sized scallops is on the "you have to be kidding me" scale. Yes they were good scallops. Did I think they were 11 dollars a piece...no. They have a terrible seemingly unsustainable price point model. I would have happily paid 12 dollars for those delicious well cooked scallops. I won't dine there again unless my employer pays for it. Which is a shame. Paying Tokyo or Paris prices for a restaurant in Palm Springs seems silly and that is because it is...

    This restaurant was recommended by a fellow local. The decor is terrific but the food and service just ok. Something as simple as a steak was tough and not seared well. Things that distinguish a fie restaurant were missing. Water glasses weren't refilled and silverware not replaced as used.

    We had our wedding anniversary here, and what a superb choice. We are foodies, and eat all over the world, so we critique thoroughly! The valet was polite, our walk through the lobby was fascinating. Decor is quite eclectic. The maître d was charming, and arranged for the most romantic table as requested. Great advice on the menu and wines. Unique wine list for one glass only, which suits us as my husband does not drink. We had the escargot and the tuna tartare which were both delicious. Our main and deserts were also excellent. Prices are reasonable for this high level experience. Perfect music choices for ambience. We will be back again, and we will bring friends and clients.

    I had not heard of this restaurant before, I suspect it caters mainly to visitors as it is located within a fairly secluded resort. There is no sign, and it can take a couple of tries to locate! Then you enter a large lobby, and pass through an unassuming black curtained doorway into a large dimly-lit, eclectically decorated restaurant. The menu is brief and in French, with brief descriptions in English. Everything a la carte, and pricey but not beyond what you would expect. The food was fabulous, portions small - leaving room for desert! We had an endive salad, French Onion soup, the salmon and a duck confit special the server said would be moving onto the menu permanently. Everything was fabulous. We will be back!
