Norma's - Parker Palm Springs
Loved everything about Norma’s...food, beverages, service and of course that orange door!
If your going to splurge, Norma's is the place. This breakfast and killer, the setting is marvelous, I could go on and on. Just go you will not regret it!
My son and I came for breakfast. We love it at Norma’s. The huevos rancheros are like a little work of art.
We're so happy you had a great time at Norma's! The huevos rancheros is one of my favorite dishes on the menu as well. We hope to see you again soon! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
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.
Thank you for the feedback. We're sad to hear your experience was not up to standards. We hope you can give us another chance to show you what Norma's is really about. Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
Macchiato was dreamy creamy, crab Louie salad was delicious and fresh. Service was impeccable
We are so happy to hear you had a great experience at Norma's. We hope to see you again soon! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
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.
Food and service were great. We look forward to returning.
We're glad you had a great experience Nikki! We look forward to your return. Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
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.
Cutest brunch spot in Palm Springs hands down! Most amazing hotel, artwork creates an amazing place.
Ashley, We're so glad you chose Norma's as your brunch spot! We hope to see you again soon! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
Norma's never disappoints - always a fun atmosphere with terrific food and fabulous service.
Elizabeth, We're pleased to hear you had a terrific experience at Norma's. We hope to see you again soon! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
Really really expensive. Waiter added bacon to my order without my consent. And of course I was charged for it. When splitting the check in two, all the coffees were added to my bill. The food is uniquely prepared and delicious. Now they charge for parking, as if the high prices were not enough!
Of course. We're looking forward to seeing you back in Norma's. We'll be in touch. Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
Beautiful outdoor setting!
Thank you for rating Norma's five stars! We're so glad you enjoyed our patio setting! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
Celebrated my birthday with brunch! Fantastic service and ambiance really elevated the experience.
We're so glad you chose Norma's to celebrate your birthday brunch! Hope to see you soon! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
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.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your brunch at Norma's! The crunchy french toast is definitely a favorite for us as well. We hope to see you soon! Kind regards, Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
Food was excellent, service was great and atmosphere was fun.
Thank you for the five star review! We're glad you enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere! Hope to see you soon! Laila Houg Restaurant Manager
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.
Food was VERY slow and cooked incorrectly. Over priced for what you get.
Thank you for taking the time to review Norma's. This is not the experience we want our customers to be left with. We are sorry you had a bad experience and hope you can give us another chance to make it up to you. Laila Houg Restaurant Manager

Daughters 21st birthday breakfast
Happy Birthday to your daughter!! And thank you for the 5 stars! James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
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.
Thank you for the 5 Stars! Very happy to hear that the service was attentive and you enjoyed the meals. I will bring your comment about the Caesar ring to the Chef. All feedback is taken seriously so we can provide the best experience. James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
Absolutely love Norma’s. The food and the atmosphere are fantastic. Great bloody Mary’s. They are very good with food allergies. I Highly Recommend the fish tacos.

Good ambulance and service. Generous portions, and waiters were friendly.
Thank your for the great review! Happy you enjoyed the experience and the generous portions.
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.
Way overpriced and bland. Disappointing considering how nice the hotel is.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Every comment is taken seriously. I do hope we will see you again so we can show you what we are striving for. James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
Thank you for the 5 star Review!! The Blueberry Pancakes are my favorite James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
Wonderful Christmas brunch! Delicious food and great atmosphere
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.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review. This is not the experience we strive to provide. We hope you will give us a chance to show you what Norma's is really all about. James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
Absolutely freezing inside! No heat! Charged for parking! Terrible! Over priced food! Will not go back! $85 for lunch is a joke!
I love Normas particularly the patio - it is fun, energetic, and the food is always fabulous. A must place to go when visiting Palm Springs.
Thank you for the 5 star review Sarah!! We hope you visit again soon! James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
One of my most favorite restaurants in the world for ambiance. Service is amazing and food is delicious! Always a fun experience and the Parker is so unique and beautiful!
Thank you Melissa for the great review! So happy we hit a 5 out of 5 for you! James Jaccard Restaurant Manager
