The atmosphere was lovely. The staff was friendly, but it took 20 minutes to get a drink at the bar. Everyone who was STAYING at the hotel that sat at the bar AFTER us were served drinks first, even though ours had been ordered already. We we got them they were delicious (as were the appetizers wer ordered) and the servers were really sweet. Unfortunately, my friend I was having dinner with wanted to leave by the time we got our table for dinner, because it was too hot out for her.... it was a bummer for me and the menu looked amazing!

Melvyn's at the Ingleside Inn
(2000)
$$$$
Continental | Palm Springs, Palm Springs / Palm Desert

Melvyn’s is a Palm Springs experience. It’s absolutely beautiful on a resort that is private, small and exquisite. It’s old Palm Springs. The service was top notch and the layout of tables was spacious and comfortable. The issue is the food. It wasn’t bad but certainly quite average and not worth the steep price. I had the price fix as did my date. The escargot was fine. Not superior but tasty. The main dish of a 6 oz filet however seemed rather tasteless and the two sauces it came with were overly potent. The cheesecake dessert was fine but not much above any other. Overall I’d take an out it town guest there but perhaps for lunch not dinner. More

Discover Palm Springs

As the desert retreat of the Rat Pack, retired presidents and five-star generals, Palm Springs retains the cool midcentury charm that drew yesterday's celebrities to play tennis, golf and swim. You might still spot a celebrity today eating lavender-flavored pound cake with basil ice cream on the patio of a former Hollywood star's estate. Great seafood is unexpected in the middle of the desert, but Palm Springs offers several excellent raw bars and fresh fish restaurants. Traditional Italian diners are another desert surprise, and you'll also find some wonderful pizza parlors in the area. Palm Springs is a place of hidden oases and patios, which conceal fresh, farm-to-table California food served by chef-inspired kitchens.
