Charming and PleasantOur meat at The Peaks Restaurant was a very enjoyable experience. My family and I ate here on a Saturday afternoon at noon. It was recommend to make a reservation, and I am thankful I did because we would have had to wait for a table because of the high demand. At first the food prices seemed a little steep, but upon arrival, the food was absolutely delicious! With the effort it takes to get the food up to 8500 feet it makes complete since why the prices are the way they are!! My uncle is handicapped and the accommodations at the restaurant were great. We were able to be comfortably sat a a table with no worry of his wheelchair being in the way of servers or guests. Good food, great atmosphere!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMhad a beautiful lunchOur party of 10 appreciated the items suitable for vegetarians -- lovely presentation, too5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial, reasonable, good foodOur server (young woman; don't recall her name) was delightful and attentive. Lovely views from top of the tram. Casual atmosphere, very tasty food and good variety on menu. The salad with grilled salmon was very good; the burger with avocado, bleu cheese and bacon was to die for, as were the seasoned potato wedges. Very reasonable, too.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took our first tram rideWe took our first tram ride this last weekend and had a reservation at Peaks. The staff was awesome and we got a great table to enjoy the view as we dined - great experience!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with a viewPeaks is an amazing place to dine. The employees were very professional and right on point. The food was prepared very well and had robust flavor. It's presentation made it all the more appetizing.
The view of the skyline is spectacular! The view can be seen from any seat in the restaurant because one whole side of the restaurant is windows.
I recommend that you get there a little earlier than your reservation. The tram line is the only way to restaurant and it runs every 20 minutes and the ride to the top is about 10 minutes. There is an additional charge to take the tram so be sure to budget for it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMUnhappy with BarThe man behind the bar on the same level as the restaurant was very very rude. So rude I canceled my drink and walked away. It was not very busy at the bar tender flat out ignored us and clearly helped very one else that walked up.
Being rude and prejudice to people as he clearly was does nothing bring bad carma. My husband and I was in disbelief as we sat there
Other than that ( which was o sad to me) the rest of trip was one wonderful.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and outstandingGreat food and outstanding service, can't beat the few, but, restaurant needs renovating, it is like a cafeteria but expensive proces. Also, they should have some kind of deal on the tram ticket to get up to the restaurant when you are eating there - if you are in a group of 8 people you are paying almost $200 just to get up to the resaurant!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful scenery and fantasticWonderful scenery and fantastic food.

Service was prompt and atmosphere was comfortable. Nice way to top-off a
visit to the Palm Springs Tramway.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe amazing view of desertThe amazing view of desert cities is the highlight of "The Peaks". The small menu is a good value and worth the price.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA little pricey, but worth it!I'm by no means a food expert. But I do like eating food. And the food here was good. Pricey, absolutely.but very good. We had the pork chops and the macadamia nut crusted salmon, and ate every last bite. The desserts are very reasonably priced, and generously portioned. I highly recommend the bread pudding. Can't beat the view, and just by putting a short note politely asking for a table with a great view in our online reservation, we got the best in the house. Expensive dinner, but worth it for the experience. It made for one great date night!
On a side note regarding customer service, I left my iPhome sitting on our table when we left, and the manager chased me down to the lower level to get it back to me. Very impressed!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the food and theWe enjoyed the food and the senic view was outstanding... service was great....3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a great time.
