    What a treat! Normally at a touristy type venue such as this one finds the food marginal at best and always over priced. That was not our experience - the hostess went out of her way to seat us and our out of town guests at a spectacular view table and we all thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful service and delectable appetizers and entrees. We all thought we received excellent value for the dollar and the steak, burger and entree salad with grilled shrimp exceeded expectations. I’m really pleased - our guests had a wonderful time and overall it was a lovely afternoon .

    A highlight of our trip to Palm Springs! Breathtaking views, great service, outstanding food. The corn chowder, bruschetta, duck, and chocolate caramel crumb cake were delicious. We made a reservation for 5:00 so were the first seated for the evening meal, during which we watched a beautiful sunset and moonrise, then rode the tram down in the dark to fun music and stunning views of the city lights. Memorable experience!

    The location, view and atmosphere make Peaks stand out. The service was also excellent; fast, attentive and pleasant without being overly intrusive. The food was fine; nothing stood out as a “I’ll remember that forever” dish, but it was all tasty and filling. Overall, it’s well worth taking the time for a meal here if you want to relax and enjoy the views of the valley with a good meal.

    Had a great time and meal at Peaks at the top of the tram in Palm Springs! Lunch prices were good, service was fast! Frankie the bar tender was a hoot! Would definitely recommend Peaks to friends…only downside was weather, we couldn’t enjoy the view due to clouds.

    It was not the fine dining experience we were hoping it would be. The food was just okay, and the service was not great. It felt like they were in a rush to turn tables. It’s a busy place. Glad we experienced the Aerial Tramway, but once was enough.

    Went for my 26th birthday for the first time and was not disappointed. Exceptional site to visit with spectacular views. It’s a whole different world up there. At the pines restaurant the food was delicious my plate, in particular, wasn’t so good it was the Ravioli asparagus with a choice of salmon and etc. the “cream” sauce did not compliment the dish but as for the rest of my party of 7 their food was bomb.

    Laranne is an excellent server. I had the cheese burger without cheese and it was cooked perfectly. My husband had the chicken sandwich and thought it was just ok. The ambience is great and reservations are a must or you could be sitting at the bar facing away from the view. Highly recommend! The other restaurants are cafeteria style, which are fine, but if you want to have a nicer meal, go to Peaks.

    My expectations were higher for such an amazing place . The food was just not there for me ( no veggies with meats) only fries . The drink was not good , I ended up sticking to water . The view is amazing . However, if you are hungry and good food … I would not go with high hopes .

    You pay for the view which is fabulous!! Food was good but really the same as any steakhouse in town. Understandably, the menu is very pricey. Service was slooow! Could be that our waiter was did have a good number of tabkes but then again, so did all the other servers, we waited 30 minutes to see him from the time we were seated. From there, he was hit or miss. The host was wonderful and urged the waiter a bit. I’m sure he was busy but disappointing. Would go back for lunch to try it again.

    Excellent experience. Even though we had fog for part of the dinner time, the food was so high quality, we didn't even care. Then the fog cleared and we could go out on the patio to check out the airplane-level view--it's SO high!! Highly recommend.

    We had to wait for our reservation and went to sit in the chairs provided. We stood at the small bar (where you can't be missed) to order a drink while waiting. The bar tender ignored us completely until we had to speak up and he said he would come to our table in a moment. He continued to ignore us (refusing to even make eye contact) and never bothered to acknowledge us. We never got our drinks. He was a very bad representative for your restaurant.
