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!
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 .
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
Excellent food, the service was fast and friendly and the views were incredible! Will be back when we are in Palm Springs again.
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 .
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!
This had to be the worst dining we have ever experienced!! We are from Texas and my husband always had wanted to dine and ride the Tram, it was my husbands birthday and we made reservations, and waited and waited to be greeted by our waiter and the usual pre ordering chit chat with a glass of water and the usual bread basket of which we did not receive until much and I meaN much later. Finally after around 6:15 a young guy named Ryan showed up and ask if we were ready to order. I ordered an appetizer and we order a cocktail, still no bread or water. I finally flagged down a busboy and he brought water and finally the waiter brought bread, we ordered then and waited and waited for our food that it was noticed by the waiter waiting on the table by us that he must have said something to the manager because she came over and inquired if everything was ok, no it wasn’t, it’s now 7:20, 2 hours later, we got up and paid at hostess desk and I stopped with another waiter with the brownie and Birthday candle and I ask him to please give it to the table beside us that had to get up and take flatwear from another terrible.
The $26.00 chicken under a brick turned out to be very disappointing. It seemed to be steamed or boiled and was not crispy as one would expect and was covered with an unappealing brown sauce. It was supposed to be accompanied with root vegetables and fingerling potatoes. The root vegetable was parsnips and some were under cooked and some overcooked. I expected a colorful mixture of perhaps carrots,beets parsnips etc. instead a yellowish pile of parsnips was served. The fingerling potatoes were also under cooked and I'm guessing they were microwaved rather than roasted and had no seasoning at all. Unfortunately, the whole meal was completely bland looking and tasting. I would stay clear of this dish. My friend had the meatloaf which I tasted and it was excellent and was plated much more appealingly with roasted carrots, broccoli, string beans and mash potatoes. This is their signature dish I believe and I should have played it safe and ordered that. I must say the manager was very nice and removed the chicken from the bill and offered to substitute for the chicken dish, but at that point it was too late. Not many choices at the top of the mountain, but I think I'd go to the other ore casual place at the top.
The burger I ordered was completely burnt and not edible (ordered it medium), The beef patty and bacon both. Also would have liked more menu choices or at least more variety with the sides they came with.
Great dinner, great service, great view! Enjoyed the pleasant evening with my husband.
