Food that we ordered was good, but it was disappointing that the restaurant did not offer any Thanksgiving dishes.....

We spent $100 on the following: eggs Benedict, donut hole, crunchy French toast and 2 glasses of their $8.00 a glass orange juice. The food is good, but very overpriced. We have been coming to brunch here for several years. This is our last year. Forgot to mention the $10.00 they now charge for valet. Won’t be back!

Cute decor, hipster mod, but honestly not worth the money. It’s been awhile since I’ve been here but it didn’t meet my expectations for such a sought after and pricey place. I’m guessing/hoping it was just that they were short staffed this day. I had a reservation but it didn’t matter there was one host that was seating a line of people waiting. So we waited in line 10-15 mins to be greeted and seated. (with a reservation). Upon seating we were given water right away but about 15 mins or so passed with no server at our table. Seems the tables next to us had a similar experience. Eventually someone (not a waiter... a manager maybe) asked if anyone had been to our table, Nope. 5 mins later a server took our order. Our food came out in average time but it was just average. A decent attempt at presentation and originality but didn’t meet the mark. I don’t see myself recommending or coming back here.

The patio was not 5 star as I was expecting considering the hotel is luxurious. The food was really good but very expensive. Eggs and bacon for $30?! Tables were scratched. Chairs uncomfortable.No fans so it was hot. Flies outside that landed on my food.

We arrived exactly on time for our 10:15am reservation. Had to wait 30 minutes for our table, with no offer of coffee or drinks while we wait. Defeats the purpose of Open Table. Then the food took a very long time to arrive. Server was gracious and did everything he could but hostess should be managing the flow of customers better.

Also, I have been going to the Parker for 10+ years and the new $20.00 valet fee is ridiculous. It’s still an outrageous $8 fee with restaurant validation. Especially frustrating when it took over 10 minutes for my car to arrive at valet

Sorry Parker, you have lost my future business

There are other better places to go for breakfast in PS, especially considering these challenges.

Trip to Palm Springs never complete without a visit to Norma’s for breakfast. It is truly an experience not to be missed! People there to see and be seen! Food is top notch quality! Portions are outrageously large as are the prices! Go for the experience try not to think about the prices and skip breakfast the rest of the week.

We visited for my husband's birthday brunch while in town. The positives - our waitress was very welcoming and provided excellent service; the crunchy french toast was delicious and the veranda where we were seated was peaceful and lovely. The bad - my husband's brulee waffle was just so-so which was upsetting given the price point. We were expecting it to be pricey, but with that, the food should be excellent. While certainly I understand the desire to keep the grounds of The Parker peaceful for its guests, it felt weird that there was essentially a guard stationed outside the restaurant to keep the hoi polloi (spending upwards of $100 for breakfast) at bay. This was a quiet month of the year, so the restaurant/grounds weren't swarming with people trying to snap a selfie or stage an IG photoshoot. Perhaps the guard stand should be a little bit more discrete. It made us - who were just minding our own business eating breakfast - feel a little bit like criminals. Nonetheless, my husband's subpar waffle was more offensive.

Hi DBM4924, I am glad to hear that the you enjoyed the service at Norma's. I do apologize about the waffle and will share your feedback with our culinary team. In the future we would love the opportunity to have made the waffle right for you immediately. I understand how you felt from the security presence and will take your feedback into consideration.

First time here and we couldn’t believe it was since we love Palm Springs! Had no hesitation with the prices in the menu because the food was SO good! I had the Norma Benedict and my husband had the crunchy French toast. They were both so delicious and we agreed that the French toast was some of the best we ever had. We can’t wait to go back and try more brunch dishes! Service was fine and we left feeling super satisfied with our meals.
