A New York vibe in the desert. Excellent food, bar and speakeasy.
The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived at 7 pm, but became busier as the night progresses....a little unusual for Palm Springs. The food was prepared perfectly. But you do pay a high price. The service was excellent, and the ambiance was pleasant; it was quiet and easy to carry on a conversation.
Once nice, new ownership and corporate mentality makes it mediocre (at best), these days.
Have just gone once to sit in the bar area for drinks and dinner. Got way overcrowded and out of control noisy and it was only a Wedn night. Had a long wait for our food. Menu is a little limited for me. Flank steak was good, spinach was good; cauliflower was not.
Busy holiday weekend, we had a reservation. Waited for an hour and half, no entrees, other diners had been seated, served, and left and we still did not have our main course. Management slippery and can't deliver. We left without paying or having dinner... walked out the door and there were other patrons doing just the same thing. Sad, really, because it's a great spot and concept. They need a staffing overhaul and better management to run the place efficiently. If you can't accomodate so many guests, don't - turn people away.
The service is getting worst.. and the food quality has reached a new low.. I have given it enough of trys..The only thing it has going for it, is the speak easy bar..
Can be noisy in the bar area. Good value happy hour
Our night was really a disappointment and embarrassing. Although our waiter was very VERY pleasant, the quality was not up to the standards we've experienced. We had to ask for a few things twice and lengthy lulls between visits to our table.
We ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and of course expecting it to be a scaled down version but honestly, I've had Dover Sole thicker than the Prime Rib. Three of us ordered the meat cooked three different temperatures. All the arrived very rare. One was sent back and the others accepted as is. The creme desert was laughable, it was so small. The baked potato was smaller than my fist. We walked out of there spending $150 on $20 worth of food. Unfortunately we will probably not return.
This is classic Old Hollywood Stars hideaway
The food is fabulous and looking forward to their Beef Wellington.
Everything was exactly what we needed. This restaurant exceeded our expectations with the menu, service and palate. A bit on the pricey side but the ambience and attention to their guest/s needs was superb.
Outstanding food and service, but be sure to bring a jacket -- they keep it as cold as a meat locker in there!
Loved the wait staff. Very friendly and knowledgeable! Food was amazing. Drinks were weak so we stuck with one for the night.
I had always wondered about this restaurant . It's a gem and a great throwback to steakhouses of yesteryear. The ambience is wonderful and the service was attentive and professionalism. The food was good, but not outstanding. I would give it a 2nd chance still.
We LOVE the creative & delicious food creations here! You know you are in the capable hands of a very talented chef & staff. Great choices! The best Washington state and Oregon oysters ever! Lobster was delectable as was the prime rib. Sides are magic here! The Crispy Brussel sprouts are outrageous! Definitely my favorite early dinner restaurant in Palm Springs! The menu is online and the choices are amazing. And the banquettes are comfy & private. Bet you can’t make up your mind on even the third read!
The evening and food was awesome as was the service from Andrea B. She was spot on in recommending a wine to compliment our meal. She was fun and very genuine. They anticipated our every need and were on it before we asked. Would highly recommend and will definitly go back.
Sunday Prime Rib Special is always the draw for us!
Old school steakhouse feel with new school food! Delicious food and great service!
Great steak. I was a little surprised they only had grilled Brussel sprouts as a side vegetable (other than baked potatoes). No green beans, carrots or asparagus.
Our experience was top-notch from beginning to end.
AMAZING Vegan food of all things. The wait staff is outstanding. Have been to Mr. Lyon's many times and they always create a wonderful dining experience. Would recommend to anyone looking for great dining experience in Palm Springs.
This was our first time at Mr. Lyons. We are residents of Palm Springs, and this was a special occasion for a friend's birthday. For the most part we were disappointed with the meal. Two of us had the Onion Soup and the Prime Rib (medium rare). We truly love onion soup, but this fell flat. The cheese was excellent, however there was nothing special about the body of the soup. It was just bland. We requested that the Prime Rib be Medium Rare. Both came out more Rare than Medium Rare. Our feeling is that if you bill yourself as a Steakhouse, you should know the difference between Rare, Medium Rare, Medium, Medium Well and Well Done - and no mistakes should be made with that. Had it just been the two of us, we probably would've sent them back, however with a 3rd dining with us it would have changed the dynamic of eating together. The 3rd person in our group appeared to be happy with his meal, Oyster appetizer and the Scallops for dinner. The Onion Rings side we ordered were especially good. Not greasy at all. Dry and very tasty. Our server was wonderful. He took his time with us throughout our meal and it was a pleasure to waited on by him. We thank the restaurant for the complimentary Baked Alaska for dessert for my friend's Birthday. With drinks the bill was @ $315 - pretty pricey for what we considered to be only standard fare. It was nothing special. Sadly we left disappointed and doubted that we would return.
Fantastic evening. Food, service and environment were all top notch.
Amazing. The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable - what you would expect in years gone by. Had a great date night here and would go back in a heartbeat. It's truly a gem - especially the back bar. Cozy, nostalgic, and fun.
Anniversary dinner with husband...perfect food,service and ambiance...a very special place...loved our evening...
One of our favorite spots in Palm Springs, whether you are just having cocktails and appetizers in the bar or going for full dinner, always a great experience. Food and service are excellent! Just celebrated our 10 year anniversary and a birthday and were given the royal treatment. Thanks to the Mr. Lyons staff for taking great care of our group.
Very swank restaurant, great food, wonderful staff.
This was my second visit, and after having such an amazing experience the first time around, I was disappointed the second time around. We were there on a Friday night with family and friends and even though we had fun the food, server and wine selection was lackluster! I was surprised that the waitress didn't even have any dinner specials to offer. At the end of the night, I don't feel the expense was worth it. The bar, and bartender were great and we'll definitely return to the bar again!
Amazing steak best I’ve ever had
Very enjoyable, good food, we could actually hear each other! Will go again!
Great atmosphere, Francis our waiter was terrific very attentive and gave us tour of the restaurant after our dinner
We went to celebrate my birthday. The place is lovely. The service excellent. With steaks and prime rib all sides are alacart. I picked a baked potato. It was cold and hard to even cut. The butter wouldn’t even melt. It was so undercooked it was barely edible. Then it cost $9. For one badly prepared small side. It was disappointing to say the least. Didn’t ruin the evening but was very unhappy with it.
Excellent food and service !
Waitress charged us for a soup we asked to take back. Some of her comments made were rude but the other staff members made up for it
Unremarkable, expensive and boring. I was disappointed.
We went to Mr. Lyons to celebrate a family birthday. Great food, great service. We will go back.
On the plus side, the service at Mr. Lyon’s was excellent. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive and remembered our special requests. The decor is beautiful with a mirrored ceiling fixture that reflects the patterns on the floor. On the minus side, the NY steak was a bit underdone and lacked flavor. The ceaser salad dressing was just OK. The wine list was not extensive and the prices were very high. Finally, we always order after dinner coffees and they had none available the night we were there.
The manager was a pretender and smug. The baked potato was hard and stone cold. We won't be back
Steaks were prepared beautifully and the sides were very tasty. Great space for dining.
Except the baked potato!
It arrived under and hard and we told the waiter he shrugged and said this is not the first time someone has said this and that the chef prefers under potatoes.
The chef is wrong .
Management needs to change this ASAP !
The restaurant was closed, despite making reservations far in advance and receiving a confirmation email the day prior to our reservation.
