I had not been here for close to 10 years and can't figure out why. The romantic ambience was enhanced by a wonderful harpist. The waitress was great and made a wonderful suggestion of a Whitehaven Sav Blanc. The baked Brie was excellent and big enough for 4, even though the menu said for 2. My husband had the 25-day aged rib eye which was flavorful and juicy. The guyere mashed potatoes were just ok. I had the 3-mushroom risotto which was to die for!!! We shared an apple pie-ish a la mode with bacon which was also very good. Apparently bacon is the new black these days. Overall a fabulous evening!

Restaurant Week Experience
Europa is such a secluded and lovely place. The staff were very friendly and nice. The food selection was excellent. I was a little disappointed with my appetizer - too plain - but the entree, scampi, was very good indeed. Apparently the short ribs were wonderful. The dessert choice was nice, but could have at least one healthy choice, fruit for example, to make it even better. Altogether a very pleasant experience.

We are locals in Palm Springs and my friend and I were looking to try restaurants we normally don't frequent. Since it was Restaurant Week, we've been able to try places that we normally find price prohibitive. Our expectations of Europa were met and exceeded. The food was fantastic and the service attentive but not intrusive. Our cocktails were delivered quickly and were enjoyed while scanning the menu. We shared the appetizer and salad and then both ordered the Short Ribs. Fabulous food. My friend ordered the molten lava cake with gelato while I enjoyed one of the best cheescakes I've ever tasted.
We will go back there. Want to try their brunch.

A Romantic Evening!
The food is great, the staff is wonderfully kind and attentive, and the atmosphere is calming and romantic. What more could you ask for on a special night out!

Give yourself a gift
You owe it to yourself to dine at Europa. Go early to sit at the front bar for a drink and soak up the charming atmosphere. Request a table in the courtyard and transport yourself to one of those hidden gems found all over Europe.
The food is excellent, prepared by one of the top 1000 chefs in the US, obviously one of the best in PS. The service couldn't have been more attentive, but not intrusive. Plan on spending 2 1/2 to 3 hours over dinner and you'll walk away feeling warm and fuzzy.
On the way out, check out the grounds of what used to be Sonja Henie's estate, and was once owned by Tony Shaloub of Monk fame.
This place is a slam dunk for making an impression on any guest. Go!

Lovely and calming setting, competent and non-intrusive service, and great food make this a winner. The summer prices provide a bargain as well. We shall return.

Europa is TOPS!
Europa is a well-known hideaway in Palm Springs. It is very romantic, old European, and intimate with a wonderful staff. The food is consistently fantastic. A favorite is Osso Buco - just falls off the bone, presented beautifully, and soooooo good! A very special restaurant for a special night out! Bravo!

What a find
In a nutshell: one of the BEST restaurants in Palm Springs. Jeremy, our server, was also fantastic. Read the reviews on Open Table and did not disappoint. Make sure this one is on your list. We are foodies and have eaten in many restaurants in the area. So happy we finally tried this one!

Pleasant with good food
The welcoming and waiting was a bit tedious but the food was great. No complaints about the shrimp appetizer and boeuf Bourgignon (main course) my wife had; no complaint about my mushroom soup - actually, outstanding. My risotto was heavy on salt; I hesitated to return it. Merlot (Sonoma) and Pinot Grigiot (Italy) by the glass were fine and moderately priced. It's a cosy place, fine to eat out and to talk with friends as the noise level is low.
