The view is lovely, but the service and food were lacking.
It was way too pricey for the quality. My gnocchi was mushy and the sauce tasted like it was burned. My friend had to send her medium fillet back because it was cooked well done. It look them over 15 minutes to fire her another one. Her potatoes where too underdone to eat.
Maybe go in for an over priced drink to enjoy the view, but I’d eat elsewhere

The best available food venue at the top of the Palm Springs Air Tramway. Food and service are okay. The view is fantastic and largely makes up for any restaurant shortcomings!

Beautiful views, quiet dining areas on several levels. Beet salad was lacking on beets, pork chops were good, gnocchi were served in a heavy smoky tomato sauce. Overall, good experience.

I asked the if the chicken dish was boneless. He replied “YES. The chicken is BONELESS”. Chicken came out on a huge bone. Sent it back and he then gave me the lunch menu (when I was there for dinner). So I tried to order again only to be told sorry that’s actually the lunch menu let me give you the right one... while all this is happening my friend is sitting there with her salad without untensils.... after asking for them twice. What a joke. The waiter never apologize and the manager just tries to manipulate me into a dessert because she didn’t want to give me my meal for free. The manager was little help and isn’t suited for problem solving. When I get the check the waiter goes “the manager comped your chicken meal” LOL no kidding I sent it back.... Horrible service, overpriced menu for a subpar food experience

We came for a bachelorette welcome dinner. The views were fabulous, the food was good, and the overall experience was great! They sat us where we requested and earlier than our reservation. The waiter messed up our drink order a few times and the drinks took a long time to arrive. Other than that, it was amazing. Would definitely recommend.

The food was very good. However, appetizer and salad came at same time, followed by our entrees which arrived when we were still eating appetizer. Entrees got cold while we were finishing appetizer and salad. Dirty plates were not removed from our table until dessert arrived. We had stacks of dirty plates on table. Waiter was attentive initially but then became nonexistent. Great view.

Total waste of time and money. This restaurant needs a serious update. No ambiance at all, gross food and crappy service. The food was so awful and took forever. I sent mine back and didn’t even bother to get anything else. We ended up to have to stop at another restaurant on the way home so I could have dinner. Complete waste of time, energy and money. Save it for somewhere else. Would never recommend the tram or eating at this restaurant to anyone, EVER!

We've eaten here several times. The food has improved since our last visit. Unfortunately, the service has not. Our waitress was excellent, but the food is delivered by other staff. My soup and entrée were delivered at the same time, as was one of our guests. It is a beautiful setting, especially with the snow outside. Definitely would recommend for the food and view, as long as you don't mind a few quirks with the service.

We had dinner at Peaks after the sun went down and had a nice view of the lights in the valley. The restaurant is set up so that every table has a good view. That's the upside.

Our waiter got my wife's order wrong and there really wasn't time to correct it, so she had to eat something that was ok, but not one of her top choices. He was very apologetic, but really could not fix it. My meal was mediocre, too.

I think the lunch menu is better than the dinner menu, and better priced. If you would enjoy seeing the valley in the daylight (the scenery is spectacular), go for lunch. It is a better deal.

The scenic view was amazing. It felt as if wherever you were seated you had a great view through the huge glass windows. The tables were placed very close together so you were bound to hear the conversation from the person next to you as they heard yours. The menu was very sparse and had only a few options under salad, meal, and appetizer. We had great service and the food was delicious. We were told our plate would come with broccoli but instead were given asparagus and it was cold and hard instead of cooked and soft. Very pricey restaurant but it was a great date night place.

Love Peaks, only wish they would give tram ticket discount, etc. we paid $150.00 to ride the tram to have a $600 dinner. That kinda deters is from eating there more frequently.

The food at The Peaks was very fresh and tasty. We split the beet salad and a burger plate. The portions are large so splitting them worked out well. The view of the valley below the tram is amazing and the ride on the tram is very cool. Make sure to make a reservation for The Peaks because it is a small restaurant. The service was just okay. I think our server had to many tables that were far apart. Otherwise it made for a nice afternoon.

This was our first time to Palm Springs and friends had recommended us to come up in the afternoon to see it in the daylight, stay for dinner and then go back down at night. It was spectacular... We will be back to stay for the day and hike around.
