    Hard to beat Escena's combination of outstanding views and great food. A must after a round of golf there or just for dinner if you are in Palm Springs and are looking for a great location.

    The most recent of several visits, always enjoyable and consistent service. I was sorry to see the smoked salmon has disappeared from the lunch menu but the Cobb Salad was very good. I was happy that my Bloody Mary was NOT festooned with too much fruit One of the staff kindly, and with humor, took the required photos. A nice afternoon all round.

    I ordered pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon butter. Pancakes were made with ordinary batter and had a few undercooked pumpkin bits on the top layer dusted with cinnamon powder.just not at all what I expected.

    The Escena Clubhouse restaurant has had many many ups and downs, dictated by changes in management and chefs, but more ups than downs. Our 4 meals were all different from each other and excellent, plus nicely presented. New dining tables and chairs sets a light and casual tone, and the views cannot be beat.

    Our dining experience was pretty good. Service was also very good. Our guests had the chicken which is still very good, my partner the beef and I had the pork chop. The chop could have been cooked a bit less for my taste. Dessert was very good. The beverages were prepare well. Do not like maraschino cherries in my Manhattan. They need to use Luxardo cherries. So much better...

    We were seated right away, I had a reservation. The waiter didn't bring water which had to be asked for and he couldn't get my drink right and I needed to ask him 3 times, I then preceeded to knock it over accidently all over myself and my table. It took forever for someone to come and clean up, it landed in my salad, so the whole thing was floating in ice tea. It was never replaced. The proportions of my salad was half the size that it used to be. We were not pleased and it was my go to restaurant when I took someone out. Looking for a NEW place.

    I usually go for lunch. I’ve never had anything above average in food just barely possible. I tried breakfast this time, and was disappointed in that as well. I would never ever go back to this place if it wasn’t for the views. It’s my go to spot for out-of-town guests as it is stunningly beautiful but Don’t go there thinking the food is any good. Our waiter, who only had two tables at the time was terrible as well. They seem to spend a lot of time chatting and not being of service.

    This is a great place for brunch! When the weather is warm you can sit outside and enjoy the amazing view of the mountains and golf course. The food is always good I love the chicken. They also have a good burger. It is located off the beaten path so it is quiet and not too busy. We have been going there for years.

    We arrived at 5:30 and ordered a drink, the next time we were approached by our waiter was 7:05! It was very busy and they were very understaffed but an hour and a half?! My husband spoke to the manager and he apologized. Music was awesome!
