A word from Workshop Kitchen + Bar
Dedicated to food, drink, design, and community. Workshop Kitchen + Bar is Palm Spring's newest gem in the heart of the Uptown Design District.
Located in the Class 1 Historic El Paseo building from 1926, Workshop’s Industrial chic interior gives the historic space a contemporary edge befitting the locale.

Our kitchen is based around seasonal products from local farms, so the menu changes often. Although "Americana" may best describe the style of our food, influences are many. Favorite techniques in the kitchen include our wood-fired pizza oven, wood-fired grill, and custom sous-vide station.
The bar looks mostly to American classics and carefully homemade basics. Original cocktails vary with the market's availability and our bartender's mood.

* Please note: Booth seating is limited and is reserved for parties of 3 - 6. We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but make no guarantees. For special requests, please call us at (760) 459-3451. *

Diner Reviews
  • "Very cool decor, great bar, fun foodie menu. But it's not up to charging $36 for three little sautéed scallops. Food is better during seAson but still a cool place to take visitors, or have a drink and enjoy interesting small plates."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "The Workshop kitchen + bar is a great place not only to have dinner or Sunday brunch, but also a great place for an amazing cocktail."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I am so glad I chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. It's a gorgeous place and the food and service were great. It's really difficult to find a decent restaurant in Palm Springs, let alone one that is actually good. It exceeded my expectations."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Went to Workshop to celebrate my husband's birthday with another couple. Everything was wonderful! Had the punch for four which seemed more like a bottomless bowl that lasted us the whole meal. Tried a lot of different things on the menu and loved everything. The carrots and cod were two of our overall favorites. Service was great. Ambiance was great. Perfect evening! Will definitely be going back the next time we're in Palm Springs!"
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Great ambience, steak was good. Service average. Waiters seemed little uptight. Little relaxed and friendly attitude would make it a perfect place for a night out."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "If you are in the mood for something different and food creations you won't find anywhere else, this is the place."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "There is such a thing as too much food at Palm Springs restaurants. Not here. We actually left hungry after a two course dinner. And a $175 bill. Chef abilities are over rated. Presentation is excellent. Have been here at least a dozen times but will no longer go. Too little for too much."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Celebrating a Birthday and everything was perfection! Suggested by a friend who had his wedding reception there - can't wait to thank him."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The service was terrible. Very slow. We waited at least 15 minutes between the drink and appetizer order. There were four of us, and they brought drinks for two of us first, then about 5 minutes later, they brought the other drinks. One of us ordered an appetizer as a main course, and it arrived even before the other appetizers. The food was okay. Small portions and overpriced. The girl bussing tables was surly and intrusive. The interior design was cool but not worth the experience."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Made a request as it was a birthday dinner. It was ignored. Menu hasn't changed enough. Feels the same all of the time and doesn't reflect the farm to table approach that they say they are striving to achieve. Brussels sprouts in the summer?"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "The ultra modern industrial feel was comfortable and ambient. Every morsel of food was stunningly presented and perfectly executed. We could not have enjoyed the dining experience more. Very tasty. Thanks for such a memorable first anniversary dinner."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "The staff at Workshop really knows the food AND the bar menu."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food is excellent here and the atmosphere is very cool! must try the duck oil fries !"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Amazing meal and the Charcuterie was incredible. Cocktails to die for and great service. Pork chops and the burger are a must too."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We loved everything about this place and were very excited to get a table during our Fourth of July weekend getaway. Everything except the restaurant's caste system. Parties of 3 or more (or, apparently 2, if you ask ahead of time -- the website is unclear about that feature) are seated in semi-private booths while couples or large parties are relegated to the communal table. Although there is ample room, one is required to sit on a square backless stool. This would be fine for a quick bite. But a multi-course meal, intended to be enjoyed over a much longer period, makes this arrangement intolerable. We were uncomfortable within 15 minutes and it soured our entire experience. This is a fatal design flaw and should be rethought."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The Workshop Kitchen and Bar is a great farm to table spot. Their one of a kind cocktails are amazing and unique. The food is fabulous, second time and now a regular visitor."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "After driving through the Mohave desert and then a cool-down in a hotel pool, I decided to treat myself. I couldn't have picked a better place. The cool, straight lines of the long concrete table and glowing glass bar at its far end nodded toward Georgia O'Keefe in its simple beauty. I quickly put myself in the hands of the knowledgeable female server and followed all her suggestions, from the summery avacado infused cocktail to the lavender gelato. Not sure when I'll be back in Palm Springs, but I sure hope Workshop Kitchen is there when I return!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Not that the restaurant can control the volume of the diners voices but the large group of EXTREMELY loud girls sitting near us did sort of spoil our evening. I would like to say though that the food was outstanding! Thought our server could have tried a little harder also. Great food though, would try again and hope for a quieter dining experience :)"

  • "Delicious food, stunning ambiance, thoughtful menu, impeccable service. My experience with Palm Springs has been mediocre food at best. FINALLY a fantastic restaurant has landed in P.S."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Been to Workshop 3 times now visiting Palm Springs and the food is always amazing. And the Service was excellent also. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!!!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Food and drink were way overpriced and they were out of three things. We had dinner early and there was almost no one there. Big bummer. Cocktail was disappointing-promosed flavors it didnt deliver. I had the flat iron am dwaa honestly one of the most tender flavorful steaks I have had. Really good. My husband had pasta he couldnt finish, he said it tasted off."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food was superb, and so delicious! We enjoyed ourselves very much. It is our second time dining in, but it was the first time actually having a complete meal. The first time we breezed in and out of town, so we were only able to enjoy a few dishes. This time was different. We"

  • "Lots of mixed reviews on this restaurant, but my experience was good. The location, atmosphere and design is great - we had a group of 6 so sat at the communal table which was fine, for 4 or less choose a booth - extremely high concrete pillars separate the booths for privacy. Started with shared small plates - octopus carpaccio was the winner, followed by brussel sprouts, goat cheese, then the tomato /Burrata. I had the scallops dinner, large size, tender but a bit over-cooked. The sauce on the scallops was tasty, but pretty heavy - seemed cream based. Wine and drinks were very good. Although slightly pricey, the overall dinner was good - enjoyed it and would recommend giving it a try."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The overall experience was outstanding. The chef is amazing and love that it is farm to table. The food was fresh and very pleasing not only to the palate but to the eye as well. The pork chop was to die for! The wait staff was well informed not only about the food how it was prepared and the ingredients but also was completely in the know about the architecture and history of the building which I find very interesting. The wait staff although busy makes you feel as though you are their only table. The food was excellent. The service was superior. This is a not just a place to dine, but a dining experience not to be missed from the time you walk in till the time you leave."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Interesting Restaurant Week menu drew us in. Great appetizers -- warm goat cheese with lentils and grilled asparagus were great. The entrees were also quite nice. Chicken was good, and the restaurant subbed charred broccoli rabe for rice, which was appreciated. Food was good enough for us to plan a second trip to try the regular menu."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "My past experience was excellent; however, this time the restaurant outdid itself. The tapas approach was perfect for our group of four. Dishes rolled out at a leisurely pace, allowing us to savor every dish. The wine parings proved en pointe. Our server interjected herself only when necessary (e.g., when describing the wines, talking about the dishes). While not hovering, she was there when we had a question and/or a request. At no time did the four of us feel rushed. I can't wait to revisit to the restaurant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Our first visit and seemed more like we were in upscale NY City or Chicago - great find. Definitely for the young millenials - we seemed to be the "oldies" - a first for us in Palm Springs. Food is pricey but very unique."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "With an interior like a Romanesque church (heavy walls, high ceiling, few windows) the setting was novel, if not very inviting. The food and service, however, were first rate. We ordered the prix fixe for Restaurant Week. Smaller portions of excellent a la carte items were expanded by a side order of french fries cooked in duck fat - outstanding. Fifteen dollars for a specialty cocktail seems close to NYC prices and may be the norm in Palm Springs now, but I don't have to like it."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We sat in a concrete bunker... lighting was somewhat awkward... service can best be described as "drive-by" the server was knowledgeable, and came by frequently, but zipped by so quickly we got more a feeling of wanting to turn the table over quickly than embraced as patrons. Reservations are a must... even now that season was over, they were pretty well booked for the weekend."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "From the moment one enters the chic atmosphere of Workshop, you know your farm to table culinary experience is going to be like none other. Service - impeccable! Wine list - creative, unique, and delicious! Starters - open your savory senses... and THEN more!!! Try it -- you will never forget it."

  • "Thirty minute wait between salad and entree. Waitress blamed a "spinning computer." Entree portion was TWO scallops at about $30! Cooked perfectly. Ultra modern decor with urban ambiance."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "We love Copleys and especially like to visit there during restaurant week. The patio area is lovely and the view divine. Our service was great and the food wonderful. Our only complaint is the lack of good parking. We drove around for 15 minutes until a space opened up, and this has happened in years past."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Even though we are Vancouver foodies, this restaurant is not for baby boomers ,no matter how much of a foodie, boomers may be. Not open enough....booths are uncomfortably upright...bench stools too uncomfortable to do more than lean forward. Ribs should be shared,too yummy to eat by yourself. Only arugula as a salad choice . Too serious overall Can hardly wait till we get over baratta ,everywhere, all the time. Doesn't matter, I am not your demographic."

  • "you have to see it to understand......totally industrial, concrete booths, tables, floors, white painted block walls, cool vibe, super cool, super hip, super innovative when it comes to the menu....a foodie's paradise ps....blonde waiter and chef are both hot!!!!"

  • "Food average… wait staff average…. food small and drinks ( espellially martini's small, overpriced and no top brand vodka) "

  • "Was expecting a great meal/service at Workshop and was sorely disappointed. Salads: kale was hohum...dressing was tasteless. Asparagus was lass than interesting but the dressing was good. Main entrée of scallops of 2 was skimpy. Could not eat the tarimisu because too much cocoa on top. The lavender ice cream was soupy. Service: after initial sighting of water, never saw him again. Was not even asked if we wanted coffee/tea at the end of the meal. Had to ask for the bill."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "We went for brunch, I ordered fried eggs and steak, $17, potatoes extra, bread extra. Wife ordered a pulled pork sandwich, with Aoli on the side. Of course it came on the sandwich andf had to go back. Nothing comes with the $14 sandwich. Bottom line brucnh plus 2 Prosecco's $70."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Our daughter-in-law and grandson moved back to town and we had reserved brunch for 7 adults and a child. They seated us in a room where the toddler could make a mess and be noisy, There was no stress at all and the waiter was very accommodating. We have been to the restaurant many times and we always had a great time."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "First time there...probably the last. Limited menu, small portions, relatively high prices. For the same money or less, many of Palm Springs' Best restaurants are available. About drinks....if you order a martini.....bring your wallet and a microscope. Smallest glass in town...at $12.00 and up...."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We have been at this restaurant many time since it opened. Until our last visit we could honestly say it was great. Portions for restaurant week were miniscule....2 scallops for an entree. ..covered with cilantro, after I said ,"NO CILANTRO"....2 tiny quenelles of lavender ice cream with no presentation, come on. The worst thing was the wine list. Who spends $325 for a bottle of wine? Overpriced and underrated wines. My companions said, "It will be a long time till I go back there." Enough said. "
