Johannes provides very consistent and delicious food. The menu is quite varied however my husband and I usually wind up ordering schnitzel. I am especially fond of the chicken schnitzel. They also have a nice selection of wines by the glass.

The whole experience starts with the welcoming, friendly host (Daniel), is carried over into the quaint but classy setting and finished by the always-incredible Austrian-influenced food. My favorite restaurant in the desert never disappoints.

Our server (Raymond) was great and a good sport to play along with the flirtations of my tipsy 75 year old mother-in-law. The food is delicious and generous cocktails. We so appreciate the diligence with which they are enforcing the Covid mandates and are grateful to still be able to enjoy this, one of our favorite restaurants in PSP.

The flavors, service, and ambience was great. The cheese spatzeln was the best thing we had. The schnitzel tasted great, but didn't come with sides, so we were left hungry later. The apple strudel dessert had no sweetness at all to it and was not worth it.
So, in conclusion, we felt we didn't get good value out of what we ordered. I don't understand this restaurant being listed at $30 and under, since ordering a multicourse meal would run closer to $80-100/person.

Lovely menu , service and setting a strong 10! . The New Year’s Eve Pre-fix price was steep at $135 pps.
The scallops were overpowered by too much ginger. The mousse was a tad bland and too spicy. 8 out of 10. We’d definitely return though.

Pre-New Years date night with my husband when we’re on vacation in Palm Springs.
Restaurant was busy and service seemed a little rushed which took away from the atmosphere.
Food was pretty good; schnitzel could have been pounded a little thinner but was very tasty.
Potato leek soup amazing.
Overall enjoyed very mushy.
