  • "Fun night out with my wife. Great booth at the back so it wasn't too noisey. Nice not to be distracted by TV's around the bar area."

  • "This is our second visit and I ordered the same thing. My observation, the Calamari seems very small not like the first time. Mr. Ang"

  • "OK, since you asked, I will give you review. We have been going since opening, most of my friends don't care for, for a variety of reasons. Friday night was a disaster. Service slow. The food was decent, except if we've been 6 times, 3 times we have had ONE meal not show up. And when it does it's cold. Turned the cold pizza back, hoping for a quick heat up, and while we ALL took our time to finish our meal, and were told no less than three times by waiter and manager (just wait 2 more min), turned out to be 20, we all ate SLOW, but STILL all finished, when brought back. Husband told waiter to forget it. They brought it and offered to TAKE OFF BILLING. Asked for bill, didn't eat it but took home, it was ON OUR CHECK."

  • "We dined this week. Great food, nice staff,excellent wine. Enjoyed all...except front desk. We had to wait for our table even though we had reservation. We arrived one early hoping to sit, but told too crowded, yet a third of the tables were open. When we dined at our time, there was still one third of all tables open. Wasting a great place by a screwed up front desk seating"

  • "The atmosphere and service were very good. Nice outside patio area. We had several pizzas which were just ok, good but not great. Also the toppings covered only about 2/3 of the pizza with alot of plain crust. The topping selection was interesting but not great flavor and the crust again was not that great. Would not suggest this place for pizza. I heard some of their other dishes were pretty good but hesitant to come back and try because if your calling yourself a pizzeria then I think you should have great pizza. Nice try Wolfgang but you should taste your own food sometime."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Food is only ok. Drinks are weak. Order beer or wine. Bar food. Good place after Universal Park, but there are other options. Don't go for the food. Only go for the convenience of being in City Walk."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Service staff is pretty poor and don't seem to care. Our order came out twice incorrectly."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We specifically looked up places to go with gluten free menus. I ordered a gluten free pizza, and then 10 minutes later our server came back to say the kitchen was out of gluten free crusts. She was just as shocked that no one had communicated that. I unfortunately had to choose something else to eat, which included brocolini. It came out burned. Literally so dry that it was just like kale chips. I had such great hopes for our dining experience and was sadly disappointed."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Was pleasantly surprised at the interior decor of the restaurant, it's a fun place to be! The food was delicious, and the ceaser salad was not your typical ceaser it was light and full of flavor!the pizzas were delicios, and the perfect size!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Celebrated our daughter's 10th birthday here with a small group of family and friends. We purposely went at 330 to avoid a more adult crowd. The kids menu is great, the portions generous but not overwhelming for kids. The gelato cart was great!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The bartender was our waitress. I thought that was going to be an issue, but she was awesome! Food was really great. Enjoyed the evening. Will definitely be back."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "When we ordered our drinks, the waitress came back and said that 2 of the wines we had ordered were out of stock. We thought that was odd because it was a Sat pm and they were the house wines. They I ordered my kale salad, I was told they were out of the pine nuts. I would think that these are basics on the menu and they would be in stock. We had been to Wolfgang Pucks in the beginning of Feb and had a great meal and the pizzas were amazing. This time 2 of the pizzas were good and the other 3 were fair at best. I ordered the bbq chicken pizza, there was very little sauce on the pizza.We ordered the salmon and it was dried out. I found that the discrepancy between our 2 visits alarming."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Most in our group thought the food was good, especially the special of sea bass..........baby green salad way too heavy on onions, the most disappointing thing...... our server, was stretched too thin to provide attentive service to our table of six. Had to ask multiple times for things........."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We had a salad and the margarita and also the prosciutto pizzas. We were surprised that both pizzas were lacking in flavor. Although the crust was good that's all I could say was good about either pizza. The prosciutto was more like deli ham with absolutely no taste. Our service was very good so I'm giving it an overall fair rating. Perhaps we came on a bad night."

  • "Very accommodating when I called to say we would be late for our reservation. When we arrived very prompt service. Waiter was excellent. Food was a little disappointing. Not enough sauce on the spaghetti or eggplant parmesan. Upon request they provided more sauce. Cozy atmosphere. Nice bar. Will return."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Having eaten at many different Wolfgang Puck restaurants over the years, this was terribly disappointing. The food quality was not up to par. Service that started out good when we were first seated, turned out to be poor. One of the people in our party of 4 never received their dinner until the rest of the party was half done, and then what was served had to be replaced because it was not what was ordered. We waited for a second glass of wine for so long, we were almost finished with dinner when the wine arrived. The host stopped at our table afterword and apologized for the very late dinner and mistakes, but did not even offer a complimentary cup of coffee, and billed us for the entire order. Diners beware."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "I cook better food at home. Our food was under seasoned and my veggies were RAW, French fries were brown and taisted burnt. Very good service though. Won't recommend, won't be back."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We enjoy the El Paseo location of the Wolfgang Puck Pizza Bar for many reasons. There isn't a bad seat in the house. The food always exceeds our expectations. We love the pizza. So glad to have them in the desert."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food is consistently very good, the menu varied and the staff are professional and friendly. The manager keeps a good eye on all the moving parts for a pleasant experience."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Arrived on time at 7p and seated right away. Our fellow diners were running late and arrived at 7:20p, Didn't see the server at our table for the first time until 7:30pm...way too long to wait and we should have been initially attended to while waiting for our dinner guests. Drinks finally came to table 7:55 (extraordinary amount of time to wait for drinks) and the place was not overly busy. We had to constantly ask and remind the server for water refills at least 3-4 times throughout the meal. Server was very nice but just slow. Food was OK: calamari was just average; short ribs were a bit overcooked and dry. Pizzas were OK but crust was flimsy and not as good as Wolfgang's in the Denver Airport. May give it another try."

  • "The food is always great and the room is full of life. There are tables on a patio if you would like to dine outdoors. It's our go-to in the neighborhood!"
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Another great experience at Wolfgang Pucks on El Paseo! My husband and i just love this place. Always great food and friendly service. Thank You :) :)"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "My Sister and I meet twice a month for dinner and we enjoy trying new places and different food. We have eaten at other Wolfgang Pucks and they were good. This place has a very limited menu, the Caesar salad was horrible but the calamari was good as well as the flat iron steak. Also enjoyed the Pinot Grigio. Was surprised at how empty the establishment was."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Service was not great, dirty dishes and empty bottles not cleared from table during meal. Waiter never came by to ask if everything was good. Not up to usual Wolfgang puck standards."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The pizza is great! There's just not enough pizza and too much crust. We ordered three, the mushroom was amazing. But all of them were half pizza, half crust. Which is too much for my liking. They had a really good IPA on tap too. This was a solid 3.5 stars if that was an option, easily 4 if they had less crust. And it's good crust! Just too much. If a pizza is half crust, that means I'm paying $8 for bread"

  • "We sat on the patio. Cozy and good for people watching. Food was delicious and presentation lovely."

  • "nothing to write home about... brought the wrong pizza and to their credit did not charge when they brought the correct one. I would give it another chance."

  • "Food is like what you get in their restaurants in airports. Super noisy. Servers try very hard."

  • "Excellent pasta...good wine list and comfortable booths. At lunch? Change the music from rock and county to Brazilian. Save the loud stuff for Happy Hour. Lunch is....lunch! Make it sweet."

  • "Our dining experience was very enjoyable, our server was efficient, friendly and a good sport. We have been twice and will certainly go again."

  • "This place is open and comfortable with amiable and efficient staff. The menu is thoughtful and varied and with the exception of some under seasoned White Bean Hummus, everything I have had there (the whole menu) is exceptional, including some really great pizzas!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "Though pizza dough was perfectly charred, the toppings were meh. Even pepper flakes couldn't enliven. Impressed that the manager came by and askedhow the meal was. We leveled and he couldn't have been more appreciative."
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "Average food. Good service. Sports bar ambiance. Once in while is the best we can say."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We booked for a pre-theatre light meal. The bar was noisy so we opted to sit outside which was pleasant. As we were on a time schedule we ordered within 5 mins and water and salad was presented within 10 mins, however we waited 45 mins for a very ordinary pizza! Over two inches of dry crust and almost no covering to use the expression filling would be silly. We are well aware off the difference between real Italian pizza (having eaten it in Italy) and the American version but our pizzas were not representative of either! A real disappointment."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We love Wolfgang Puck's restaurants and we were so happy to see his presence in the Palm Springs area. Great atmosphere (though we could do without the huge TVs facing the main dining room), great food, and overall a solid choice for a dinner out with friends. The pizza was delicious and the eggplant parmesan was DIVINE. Thanks for a great meal!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Yes, it is tragic that Wolfgang Puck's name is attached to the most ordinary of pizza joints. Doughy with boring ingredients sliding off the slice. There is such a thing as Corporate Integrity (I believe) but Wolfgang is showing a blind eye."
