Just moved to PS from LA. Was missing our favorite breakfast place until we discovered Manhattan in the Desert. Felt like coming home. Wonderful staff and the menu put our old favorite to shame. We’re hooked.
We always enjoy eating there on our trips to Palm Springs. The place was very empty due to COVID. They offered outside seating which was great. We enjoyed our meal and the misters kept the area nice and cool!
Great food and service! Great menu variety. Would return often!
Our perfect getaway for Sunday Brunch. Service is exceptional with a plethora of food choices to choose from. Ramon is always pleasant & the team of servers coordinated a perfect meal.
First time at M in the D for BREAKFAST. Delicious. The French Toast was amazing, and the sausage links were
ab delicious. My companion had the Bagel and Lox appetizer plate. Delicious and huge. plenty of lox, capers,
Will be back for breakfast, and going there today for another fantastic lunch.
Everything was great! Food and service was like always great! Hope things never change, would like to see cannoli in stock more often!
Good deli food- 6.99 for a cup of soup???
Too bad the prices are so high.
Pastrami and corned beef very moist and delicious.
Turkey very dry.
out standing menu with an abundance of choices.. Delicious & Amazing service
Great staff great service
Sat at the counter and it was a pleasure
I've been in CV for over 32 years. Manhattan in the Desert consistently performs in value, quality and service. We were 4 for dinner, we all had something different, soup, salad, sandwich and pasta. Great meal and service.
Cobb salad was horrible
Great, courteous service and good food.
Great outdoor patio - - - didn't know it was there!
As good as ever. Very tasty food, good service, nice atmosphere.
As usual, a wonderful lunch. Brought 2 friends, 1st time there, loved it.
This is our SUNDAY Brunch escape. Food is excellent & the Staff can't be any better !
Loved the patio. It was more peaceful out there on a Sunday afternoon. The only thing I could say we were unhappy about was the long wait for our food. We also had a hard time getting our check and then paying it. But the pastrami was heavenly and I would return for that again!
Large menu. Good quality. Good tasting. Decor appears to have been recently spruced up
This was our first visit! We had seen them on Guy Fieri, Diners, Drive ins and Dives. We ordered the corned beef sandwich on a kaiser roll and the beef brisket dinner. The matzo ball soup that came with the brisket was delishious and the fresh fruit that came with the corned beef was super fresh. Our waitress was super friendly, as was the staff at the bakery counter. We will definitely be back!
Manhattan's In The Desert is a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Consistently GREAT food and service! Very moderately priced $$.
Had the meatloaf sandwich with potato salad. The sandwich gets a B+, the potato salad an A.
always delicious & wonderful service
word to the wise.
Make a reservation as it's a gem & always crowded
Nice but Sherman’s is way better. Place needs a remodel and a good clean
Have not eaten at a good Deli since I left Chicago and to my surprise I found the deli here. This place can keep up with the some of best places that I have visited in chi town. I can say enough about this place I will tell everybody I know about this place.
I love it here. The staff is always great and you can't beat the food. We went for Valentine's Day dinner. They had a special price of $38. and change for 2 people or $19. and change for 1. You had a choice of soup or salad; prime rib, salmon, or chicken and pasta; dessert was a chocolate cake for two in the shape of a heart, with the words My Love. It was very tasty. I had their sweet and sour cabbage soup (which is why I go there), the salmon (was so moist and tasty); while my husband had the caesar salad and prime rib (which you hardly had to chew). We enjoyed and hardly spoke as we were enjoying our food too much.
Great food and service. Huge menu selection. Winner!
I had Turkey with gravy, taste not very enticing, quite a good atmosphere but food not up to standard. We eat out most nights so feel our judgement is reasonable.
Our waiter Cliff was friendly, very attentive, and gave great suggestions for the us getting the Reuben. So delicious! Love the pickles too. All wonderful. We’ll be back when we visit From SD again.
Back to M in the Desert on this trip to Palm Springs. This is a must do place for lunch etc...
Have to try their breakfasts’. Menu looks great.
Will be back at least a few more times this trip to CA.
Never disappoints. Except they were out of their BearClaws.
The best in the area. Maybe next time.
Plenty of delicious food in every order. The perfect deli experience!
What a total 180 degree reversal!!! Went here a few years ago and didn't have a great experience. A friend said... we should give it another try (apparently some new management or something???). Anyway... they were right - wow! Outstanding service, great food, nice clean friendly environment. We'll be back. Great job Manhattan in the Desert. You've instantly become one of our "go to" restaurants in town!
Always great food, great service, and friendly staff.
Albert does a great job as Manager and the staff is amazing
We love Manhattan in the Desert for any occasion
Huge menu with just about everything you could want. Our waitperson was outstanding.
A bit on the bright side, but good food.
Such a wonderful diner in the desert - we just love it here
Excellent as always!!! I LOVE their salmon salad and the Reuben can’t be beat!
Great service and food. Love the salads! The sandwiches are also excellent as is the desserts.
Wonderful! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast (tastiest omelette in memory). Service was excellent. We’d return!
We are regulars here and everything was as expected
We hadn't been to this restaurant for dinner in a long time. We were disappointed in the food. One of us ordered the fish and chips. The fish was okay, but the French fries were soft and doughy instead of crisp. Worst was the spaghetti with meat sauce. No flavor at all! Fortunately, the waiter offered to remove the charge for the latter, which we appreciated. This place is good for breakfast, but we can't recommend it for dinner.
