Celebrated my birthday at
Celebrated my birthday at Circa 59, the ambiance was perfect for a either a quiet romantic dinner or group dinner. The decor was very chic and trendy and the server was great. I had the prefix menu and it was very reasonable price and the amount of food. I had the salmon on risotto, I don't really care for risotto but to my surprise it was very tasty. Our waiter recommended two different wines and for the price they were surprisingly very good. I would definitely come again!!!

Nice Sunday morning breakfast
We had breakfast at Circa 59 before we checked out of the hotel. I ordered the 'Riv' bennie with candied bacon, cabbage slaw, griddled tomato, and a parmesan hollandaise. The poached eggs were perfect. The slaw and bacon were a bit too sweet. My husband ordered a side of the bacon, but it was just too sweet. Potatoes and arugula salad were good too. Hubby ordered a ‘Frank’ omelet with short rib, mushroom, crispy onion, parmesan, and truffle oil. He didn't like the truffle favor; but if that's something you like, you'd like it. He said the short rib was good. I had a Bloody, which was just okay. The ones at the Bikini bar and Deep End bar are much better, but more expensive. Coffee was good. Service was fair. Nice outdoor seating.

Always a nice choice
Circa 59 is a great restaurant in a fantastic hotel. Food is creative and consistently very good. The service has been very lacking in the past, but it seems that that has been rectified. It is much more organized than it used to be. You can't beat the interior or the outdoor patio area for lunch or dinner. Always a great place to take someone for a special occasion or to impress with the decor.

A classy experience
We last enjoyed this venue three years ago and are happy to report it's still a first class dining experience. Service and food were superb. The manager of the resort greeted us on exit to make sure we were satisfied.

Recommended to us
We were recommended this restaurant so decided to give it a try. It is in the Riviera hotel- which is retro throughout. It continues into the restaurant. We were there for restaurant week and 2 of us had the price fix menu and two did not. The porkchop is to die for- so moist and juicy- did not like the potatoes - wayyy too salty. The flat iron steak was phenominal as well as the tuna entre and the lobster mac cheese. I would recommend this place- go hungry- come home satisfied.

Band too loud
This would have been a wonderful evening if it weren't for the band on the patio playing way too loud and not all that good.

We had been wanting to try
We had been wanting to try Circa 59 and we are so glad we did. Food, presentation and service were all excellent. Try the scallop and beet appetizer...it was delicious as was the porkchop with homemade applesause

Had an amazing dinner. Atmosphere was hip, trendy, cool. Service was exceptional (ask for Lance). Cuisine was off the charts. Hard to find a five-star restaurant in Palm Springs that ticks all the boxes. At the upper end of the price range, but well worth it! You won't be disappointed with Circa 59!

Birthday week-end, mid-week!
We stayed at the Riviera hotel from weds through fri for my "50" birthday trip. Had dinner 2 times and 1 breakfast in the Circa59 restaurant. Dinner 1st night was great, had the Wedge Salad with candied Bacon...yum. I also had the flat bread, huge portion. Next night we started in the Sidebar with the cheese plate and shrimp cocktail. I had the side macaroni and cheese for dinner and he had the Chop, chop salad with side of steak. Very good. Try the special drinks on the menu. The fruit plate for breakfast was BIG, share! The only thing we didn't like to much, the Circa potato's were very salty. Otherwise great place.

Food/Ambience makes up for service
The ambience is amazing, the food is very good but the service is only fair. Staff is very nice but getting food out of the kitchen is very slow. The tuna taco appetizer was spectacular but my chicken entree was ho hum. Still a great place to go.
