    Lovely venue. Quiet and colorful. Service was very good. My husband had the short rib Benedict which he enjoyed very much. I had the chicken and mushroom crepe which was good. The hostess wanted to seat guests too close together but was accommodating when we suggested otherwise. My husband was not fond of his Bloody Mary, had an unusual seasoning. Otherwise we both very much enjoyed our brunch and would happily dine again.

    Came here for brunch while in Palm Springs. Not clearly mentioned is that there is no self parking here and valet is $12 after validation. Service was wonderful. Coffee a bit strong/bitter. Food was pretty good - not quite excellent and not somewhere I would come back for the food alone. Variety and menu was good. Food prices were a bit steep - in the range of a mid-upper end brunch in LA (avg entree was upper $20s low $30s), which is fine if the food were fantastic. Tables were a bit small. Can’t go to their back garden unless you’re a guest of the property. Hotel lobby itself is nicely decorated. Overall, probably not a place we would come back to, but not a bad time.

    After our meal, the waiter confronted my husband in the lobby because he wasn’t satisfied with the tip we left on our $300 dinner bill. It was bad form and quite rude. We have stayed and dinned here several times and it was surprising. We are very disappointed that the Parker would allow staff to approach guests in that manner.

    one must make a reservation to access the restaurant. that became clear to me when i was asked twice if i had a reservation. so i was a little surprised when i entered the restaurant and i was THE ONLY guest at norma’s. you would have thought it was the commissary at the pentagon. i loved norma’s in NYC and was saddened when it closed. so LOVED that i had the option in palm springs. the menu is virtually the same so it was lovely to revisit my favorites. the service was great once i was seated. again, please make a reservation. bon appetit! i look forward to returning soon.

    Open table listed this restaurant as a Thanksgiving Day restaurant - so I was surprised that when we went there was no Thanksgiving Day menu available - it was the usual menu. We were all disappointed.

    This place has gone down hill since COVID. 1. ordered a spicy margarita, got a standard margarita that tasted like premade syrupy stuff - of which Costco's style tastes better. 2. They added an unrequested tequila upgrade for a few bucks to the bill, when I had only asked for the standard margarita with jalapenos (that didnt come). 3. also ordered the crab cakes - just intended to have a brief bite and drinks before the drive out of palm springs. Crab cakes looked good, but by the time we got home we both had food poisining and were sick - not the result I wanted when taking my grandma out.

    They alwassy treat me with the utmost care and thoughtfulness: this visit was BEYOND. A friend had lost someone dear, and the true humility and humanness shown by the staff did wonders for him. He felt honored, comforted and safe in a horrific time. I ADORE the team that worked that shift. Truly remarkable in their grace and kindness with suggestions. Makes all the difference to be truly HOSTED and CARED for. Thank you and always returning.

    Came for a last minute late lunch/early dinner mid-week on a rainy day. So place was quiet and didn't get the benefit of enjoying the patio, and doubt it was the typical "vibe". BUT, the food was delicious and beautifully presented (had the fish tacos and their stunning version of a salad nicoise), plus bloody mary's made with Norma's yummy home-made mix, and we were superbly well taken care of and graciously welcomed (though we weren't staying there -- wish we were!). Background music was great (a bit latin, a bit sinatra) and literally spent hours eating, drinking (and even working).... Yes, valet parking is $12; and yes, you need to make a resy to be admitted to the grounds (we made ours 15 minutes before arrival); but if you're seeking a refuge within Palm Springs, such is the price of admission... This will definitely be my go-to next time we're in Palm Springs!

    Great service, our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Food and bevs were delicious- latte to order (decaf with oatmilk), blueberry waffles with cream, crispy french toast, smoothie shooters on arrival. Mimosas and special dessert for our anniversary. Really enjoyed the experience. Lobby is eclectic - loved the decor in lobby and restaurant. Other notes: Reservation required to enter property. Valet parking.

    The ambiance feels so exclusive and like you are stepping into an updated 1960s Palm Springs hotel with all the remaining charm. The decor is very Mid Century Modern. The food was delicious with different options than some of your typical brunch items. I had the Potato Pancakes and it was PHENOMENAL! The service was great they answered any questions we had and were speedy and knowledgeable. The drinks were great but a little overpriced at $20 for a brunch drink and the portions were fair but again on the pricier side of $25-$45 a plate. My one negative is the parking situation. Your option is to self park on a very busy residential street or do the $12 Valet parking. I just wish this had been better communicated on the website as I would have arrived earlier to better find myself a parking spot and save myself $12.

    The Parker is an iconic property, but this restaurant is confusing. The ambiance is lovely and the server was sweet and mostly attentive. The menu is downright stupid. No appetizers, barely a cocktail menu, and equal parts breakfast and sandwiches/burgers… and an entree or two. And OVERpriced. My friends both got the salmon… one was a filet and one was a steak. Flavorless and appeared to be cooked from frozen. The outside was cooked and the inside was raw. I ordered the huevos rancheros with over-easy eggs. My eggs were hard and the whole dish was lukewarm. I would go back for a drink and to enjoy the decor, but absolutely would not recommend for a meal.

    Norma’s is spectacular from start to finish!! It is located inside the Parker hotel (super cute and instagrammable). We were greeted with a complimentary taster of their mixed berry smoothie which was so fresh and yummy. The patio is colorful and welcoming so we chose to sit outside. We started by sharing an order of Norma’s doughnuts (YUUUM) and I had the breakfast quesadilla with sausage instead of bacon. My sister had the turkey and sweet potato scramble. We were thoroughly impressed with the service as well, everyone was so friendly and attentive. I want to go back to Palm Springs just to visit Norma’s again

    We were there because we were given a gift certificate for our wedding gift. Usually your shun just a little bit when you mention having a gift certificate but not at the Parker. They went way beyond to make us feel deserving of the best Meal ever. Ezekiel was our server. He was absolutely the best! The black Manhattan was fabulous. The salmon was great! And I stooped down to A new low ordering the best cheeseburger I’ve ever had in my life. We really can’t wait to return and see Ezekiel and this absolutely fabulous hotel.
