Unfortunately we were extremely disappointed with the food and service on our visit today.
When we arrived (on time) for our reservation, we were told that we would have to wait 25 minutes to be seated outside as we watched the couple just in front of us be seated outside as a walk up with no reservations. We asked what was the purpose of a reservation, if we were going to have to wait to be seated. It was because “they were busy”.
When we sat down, the first thing that we were informed, was that “they are busy”, so expect to wait at least 15 to 20 minutes to be served. Not a big deal...
The food (omelet) did finally arrive and it was lukewarm, way overcooked, rubbery and the avocado was hard and not even ripe. For a $26 omelette, I would expect the quality to be exceptional, not comparable to truck stop dinner food. The service was very sparse and when he showed up to ask how things were, he did offer to remove the charge for the unsatisfactory food... which was appreciate. For the price of the stay in this hotel and the price of the restaurants, they need to live up to the prices asked. Even though this is our 3rd visit to this property, I doubt that we will return. Unfortunately this meal experience was just a “taste” of the overall poor experience of our stay. For another review...

Very, very slow to get our food out. No one veered is at the host stand for 5-10 minutes. We kept asking people where the host was. The experience did not match the price.

Great servers, beautiful outdoor seating, unfortunately the food wasn't, HORRIBLE cheeseburger , low quality small buns, unseasoned meat, not so fresh lettuce and tomato. I'm very sorry I ordered it. Our server didn't bother to ask why I hardly touch my meal The valet guys wanted to get pay before they brought my Range Rover . Not cool.

Everything was fine. Food was good but not exceptional. Setting was nice but nothing over the top fantastic. Service was adequate. My problem was with the perceived value. $27 for banana macadamian nut pancakes!!!! $20 for a small pour of an average at best rose. Don’t get me wrong. They were good pancakes but nothing I couldn’t get at IHOP for $10. And I’m not cheap. I’ve spent $700 for lunch for two at a Michelin starred restaurant in Monte Carlo and walked away feeling great about the experience. I walked out of Norma’s and felt like a sucker. Definitely an experience for those trying to impress and be trendy.

This restaurant was fantastic. It encompasses the ultimate Palm Springs/mid-century vibe with its decor, design and ambiance. Sitting outdoors on a sunny day for brunch was a delight.
The menu was interesting and I highly recommend the crunchy French toast with a side of bacon. I also enjoyed the complimentary shot of the fruit smoothie when we sat down. It was delicious. The wait staff exemplified exceptional service and gave great advice in regards to the menu.
I will say it is very very pricey so be prepared for that.

Had a lovely brunch. Unfortunately, our server disappeared for a long time and our food took almost 50 minutes to arrived which seemed unnecessarily long considering the restaurant was only 1/3 full at the time. All in all, the food was delicious and the surrounds were amazing but we'd have hoped for slightly more attentive service and more prompt delivery with our order.

Very nice lunch at The Parker. Pleasant and the service was good. Laid back, yet attentive. The food is good and good size portions! I was very disappointed that they have changed their Caesar salad 'bowl'. What used to be a delicious Parmesan crisp 'ring bowl' is now a thick, tasteless ring if Toast that looks like a freeway barrier and is just a huge 'thing' on the plate that is only in the way of the salad inside...
other than this.... very good. Even from a jaded local! This is Palm Springs today.

having had a great meal the day before, I brought my family back for lunch the following day and requested the patio. We were put at a table where heat lamp wasn't working -- when we asked to be moved to better table with heat lamp, they said it was booked. I would never have come if we could not have had patio but my girls were hungry so decided to stay. in the two hours we were there in the noisy and depressing interior space, NO ONE took that table and there were many others that were free. Food unexceptional and sound ear piercing. I have stayed at the hotel many times over the years and this kind of VIP treatment was more than disappointed not to mention hugely overpriced to be placed in dining space that did not meet standards of mediocre coffee shop. We also wanted to walk the grounds, which we had done the day before. Now security set up and said we could not...Parker -- you should behave better than this.

Although the Parker is a beautiful and iconic property, Norma’s is kind of a joke. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks, 1 hour for our food. This was mid day and the restaurant was less than 1/2 full. The pancakes were $28. They were good but no way justified the price. Service staff were kind and friendly but the pace was unbelievably slow. Probably a better bet to stop in for drinks and pics.
