    I thought the food was OK. It was not hot enough on our flatbread appetizer. My wedge salad had way too much dressing on it. The wait staff was excellent.

    We waited 30 minutes past our reservation. The table offered was smashed between two others. Although the waiter was great they were out of most entrees. We ordered meatloaf and although it was tasty it was raw in the center. We had to return it. They didn’t charge us for the meatloaf but they did for the salad and the drinks.

    Been many times over the past 7 years and it never disappoints. Only negavie this tome was, we went for 5:00 dinner. Under our table and chairs, including the entire restaurant floor was disgusting. Food all over, straws, dried lettuce...just gross. Mentioned to our waiter, he had someone clean under and around our table.

    Went for lunch because of cheaper prices. Tried the linguine with grilled chicken added and it was delicious came in a pesto sauce. The Caesar salad was amazing as well. Negatives: 1) Water tastes disgusting like it’s straight from the sink. 2) Uncomfortably warm with no AC

    The setting is hard to beat. The service was outstanding. One of our party had ordered medium rare meat and was served well done filet. The server immediately took it away and replaced it as quickly as possible with the proper order. The food was very good. Our server was friendly but not overbearing he was extremely helpful as noted above. Meals are not inexpensive, but considering that everything has to be brought up from the valley floor below on a gondola, I think there is a little to complain about for the cost of the meal. Definitely a special occasion setting.

    The food wasn’t particularly tasty, but it wasn’t bad. No one in my party of six was too excited about it. The chicken in my chicken sandwich was dry. It’s also pretty expensive for what it is. But the waiter was very nice and we were seated at a great table. I was okay with it.

    This restaurant has fairly good food--what they did have. By the time we got there for our 6:45 reservation it seemed like they were out of a lot of things on the menu--which the waited neglected to tell us until we were ordering. There wasn't enough stuff on the menu to justify not listing the food they were out of. Also, they managed to seat us at the one table that had a view of nothing. So, overall, a disappointment. We would have been better off ordering from the cafe and finding our own, better seats.

    Incredibly overpriced for “casual dining” and subpar food. Considering the beauty of the mountains at over 8,000 ft, the set up of the restaurant (at least where we sat) provided marginal views. Dinner for 5 (3 children and 2 adults) was over $250. This included three kids meals, 2 vodka sodas, two desserts (one should have been a birthday comp but was not and one should have been at a child’s price and was not) and two entree salads with added protein. As the server added 20% gratuity, we didn’t include any additional. Pet peeve. I’ll tip kindly and generously if given the opportunity to choose my own percent. Overall, not worth it. We should have chosen food from the cafe with better views outside.

    Food was below average. Burger and steak were “made to order” but was over cooked for everyone at the table. Sparkling water from the tap is $4+, that’s outrageous. Service was terribly slow; forgot our appetizer; forgot kids’ meal. Felt taken advantage of as patrons on tour and exploring.

    We made reservations via website for 5 for Birthday Dinner. When we arrived at the Ticket counter, Ticket agent did not know the dinner price were included with the dinner. We paid the ride then went up to the restaurant anyway. At the restaurant, my Reservations were not recognized but I showed the confirmation, then seated us to the table however, the menu was different then the website. I asked a waiter to find out that my reservation were actually next door cafe even the website said Peak Restaurant. Food was terrible Vegetables we’re all brown over cooked, bread was hard as rock , whole dinner was terrible!!! Website also said there are desert but did not see any desert- the worst dinner ever had - we’re all upset ruined the birthday party. WE WILL NER-EVER eat at there again. ANGRY Guests,

    Our server Diego was fantastic! We ordered the bruschetta to start with and it was a lot larger than we expected and very yummy! Thanks to the size of it, we were only able to eat half of our lunch. I had the greens salad with delicious shrimp and my friend had the pasta Parisan chicken. The view was awesome and very relaxing. The only negative was the very unenthusiastic non-welcome we received from the two host at the entrance. I am glad our server was a lot more energetic and interested in providing upbeat customer service.

    Visiting from New Jersey, staying in Palm Desert and wanted to see the sites and eat at the mountain top. Peaks did not disappoint! Interesting craft cocktails, tasty appetizers and entrees and pleasant atmosphere with a nice view. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They went out of their way to take a photo for us and worked hard keeping our water glasses filled. Overall a pleasant experience with good food!

    First, the good. Chris was our server and he was friendly, attentive, and professional. Exactly what you’d hope for from the restaurant with amazing views! And last, the not so good. We both had the flat iron steak. My friend’s was tough and dry (ordered med rare) and mine was good (also med rare). But, it had absolutely no flavor. So bland and boring. The “sauce” was watery and I don’t even know what it was trying to be. The fries looked hopeful: big wavy potato wedges. But again, boring and not crisp. The view is lovely, the service is fantastic, but save yourself the money and eat elsewhere. Glad we tried it but we are not returning.

    This is the first time that we have dined at this restaurant, since it reopened after Covid (and redecorating). The views are terrific, and the food is quite good. The menu has something for everyone, and the gourmet burgers are great (hint: If you want a rare burger, which they do fabulously, it seems to be essential that you emphasize, then over-emphasize it with your server). Monica assisted us, and she was fantastic (in convincing the kitchen that we meant RARE!). Indeed, we valued her professional assistance at every step of the way.
