You can't beat eating on top of a mountain with stunning views.
The hostess was incredibly rude. Called to say running 15 minutes late and she told me she would give up our reservation. When we got to the restaurant there were so many open tables. Not even a smile when we sat down. Good thing the waiter was nice.
Service was slow and inattentive. Ambiance was nice but pricey when considering cost to get up there and taxi/parking.
Got there as they opened and were seated right away. No crowd. Food great.
All was ok.... I would like to see more variety on the menu and on the drinks
Family was in town from Texas. They are interested in different things to do. The tramway and dinner at Peaks fell into that category. Though it was pricey, the food was flavorful and was prepared and displayed quite well. I would, myself, enjoy returning but likely on a special occasion.
This restaurant is generally okay. The price, however, (after adding the tram ride) is exorbitant. Whoever manages the restaurant relies upon the cliff side location for traffic rather than “pumping up” the menu with something inventive. Our party of four was served 4 different dishes. The brick chicken was dry, the meatloaf tasty but pedestrian, the salmon was lovely, and the pork chop was cooked to a reasonable standard but not spectacular.
The wine list had some nice selections but our recommendation is to go cheap and cheerful. The mark up is about 4 times.
If you are going for walk or hike on the mountain, take a picnic and skip dining in.
The setting and environment is nice. Dinner is limited but servings are generous and fresh
Great restaurant, great service, with unbeatable views of the Coachella valley
nice area on top of the mountain great views. but watch your bill seems they add in a tip anyway on your card. had to call back and have it adjusted what a chore while on vacation in a distance city. 2nd time I was there in a year but overall fun.
My nieces drove from Laguna Beach to Palm Springs to visit me vacationing - they had never done the Tram trip so I made the suggestion as I enjoy the Tram and lunch - we had a great time - great food and service!!!!!! I would highly recommend it to all!!
Experience was great , food was good. A little loud , with some other people in considerate of others . I would of enjoyed it more , but I was sick from the elevation . Not for everyone!
Great food! I would certainly go back again. Glad we had reservations because they were busy.
I orderd the Bruchetta Duo as an appetizer. It was very cold as if it was taken straight from the fridge. It should have been served at room temperature or warmer. I had the Pasta Primavera for a main. It was served warm but not hot. On a scale from 1 to 10 the meal was a 5
Food is bad to mediocre at best! I would suggest the cafeteria up on the mountain (seriously!)
Incredible spot. Good food. Wine a little expensive but overall really enjoyed the place. Had drinks in the bar first. Medium steak was a little overdone. But really your there for the view which is breathtaking.
Awesome experience dining at over 8000 ft. We both ordered the rib eye which was prepared exactly right--very juicy and good lean piece for a rib eye. Service could have been better. Restaurant was not crowded yet 3 tables of 2 were placed right on top of each other. Took 15 minutes to get a beer brought to the table and we had to go to the hostess to get some bread brought to us. While you understand it is cold up there at this time of year, they need to heat the area better as it got very cold during dinner.
The fun is getting to the Peak and once your at the restaurant the food and views are great!
Of course it's the journey to the top that makes the meal at Peaks a special occasion but there are plenty of other options on the valley floor below.
The service was great but the menu wasn't as varied as other valley options. The wine list was mediocre and the view from the restaurant want as spectacular as you might hope.
Plus, after dinner there's the long wait to get on a team to go down.
My suggestion... Take the tram to the top in the daytime or just in time to see the sunset. Enjoy the view and the cooler air and then get back down as fast as you can to a restaurant with some better options.
Also, if you can swing it, take Uber past the visitor center to the top where the teams actually pickup.
It didn’t matter that we had reservations through Open Table - they never acknowledged them and did not seat us near a great view as requested. And we asked about it so we were moved a bit closer but then we got a note from Open table stating we had not shown up! We had!
Food was alright and waitress was very pleasant
Beautiful up there. Food not as good as the last time we ate, but okay. Overall a nice afternoon.
Go for the views. Food was average. Blue cheese burger was tasty, beef/pork meatloaf, just ok.
we went here for a Valentine's Lunch/Dinner Great View!!!! good food nice staff
Pleasant quiet dinner. Was nice to see the shift from day to night from the top of the mountain
Excellent venue for a special occasion and to enjoy a special meal. Pricey, although main dishes offered good portions. The appetizers were too expensive, with very little provided. Had we known this, we would have skipped the appetizers. We ordered two of them. The waiter could have been more attentive, as he kept forgetting one of our party's drink refill and never asked if we wanted more alcoholic beverages after our first one when we were seated. All around, a good experience.
Really enjoyed our lunch . Gd food . quiet time . relaxing .
Excellent food, the service was fast and friendly and the views were incredible! Will be back when we are in Palm Springs again.
Nice restaurant with amazing views. Good for a treat. I thought that lunch was a better value.
I ordered the meat loaf and the out side of the loaf was hard as a rock over cooked or fried. My wife ordered the pasta and the noodles had no flavor
I wasn’t t expecting terrific food , I’d read enough on yelp saying it was not good, but I was ok with that as I wanted to go for the view and experience; but even so it really does need updating. I had the brick chicken which was cooked to perfection but was served with potatoes and yellow parsnip was the vegetable! Terrible choice ! Where was the green, broccoli spinach or zucchini! The martini was sugar syrup, no alcohol in it that I could taste. This is Palm Springs home of the Martini!! How did they manage that ! The portabello flatbread was great, tho too much Brie overall. And the bruschetta was chunky and way too garlicky with no herbs , couldn’t eat it. The view was the winner and our waitress was fabulous!
I wish it was better as I would’ve gone again with visitors and friends, but not until someone with a vision brings it into the realm of a magical destination that it deserves.
Overpriced and bad service. My hamburger was ordered medium. Came well done and dry. It was mostly bun. My wife's salmon was on the rare side. It was eatable.
The food was mediocre at best and way overpriced for what you got
The waiter was crude and unprofessional. The soup was lukewarm .
Beautiful ride. Incredible scenery and the food was excellent. Be sure to ask them to put a fruit tart on the side for you, when you first get there.
the resteraunt was fantastic, the ride up the mountain in the gondola was amazing, food was prepared well, wine list was very good, the views can not be any better.
Ordinary food in a spectacular view setting. Don’t go just food food. Overpriced and just fair quality
The restaurant's main draw is the view of the Coachella valley. The food was average and there isn't much of a selection. The restaurant was crowded with some large parties and that really negatively affected service. All that being said, the brownie sundae dessert was amazing.
Fabulous view. Gorgeous place. Great experience.
However in the restaurant we felt like rushed cattle with our waiter.
Move’m in,, move’m out,,,, rawhide.
As a couple on vacation for the 1st time in Palm Springs a lot of people told us to go eat here for the view 8,500+ feet high. Well the view was just the lights of the city since it was dark.
Also when you have a reservation I think it should be known you still have to pay $26.50 per person to ride the team to the top of the mountain. Again you see darkness & twinkling city lights. There should be a voucher to refund your tram ride.
Get there & very few people eating. We were all pretty much crowded at 1 end of the restaurant. Given our menus then waited 15 minutes for anybody to come by to either give us water or take our order. Meanwhile there were 2 waiters serving the tables on either side of us. We must’ve been invisible to them?
When our waiter brought our water he was going to drop & leave. My wife said we’d like to order dinner & drinks now too & he didn’t have his pad to write on. So he had to come back. After we ordered the waiter asked if we’d like a bread tray? Yes! Well our Wedge Salads came 15 mins later & still no bread or my Iced Tea & my wife’s glass of wine. We asked for substitutions on the wedge which they did with no problem.
The waiter came by with our drinks about 5 minutes later, (he didn’t deliver the salads) & looked at our table & my wife said we still didn’t get the bread tray. We’ve been there over a 1/2 hour at this point with poor service.
Finally our dinners arrived at 7:45pm. How do I know? Because I looked at my watch because the staff were cleaning tables & putting the chairs up on the tables, including the table next to us, as they closed at 8pm. My Flat Iron Steak was good, not great, but my wife’s chicken was not cooked well. It was ‘Rubbery’. The side dishes of vegetables & potatoes were small portions. We decided not to send her chicken back because we figured if they were closing up the dining area it would be highly doubtful the chef would want to re-cook the meal.
In all it was overpriced & don’t waste your time going!
