Pinzimini at The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa Ratings and Reviews
You can't beat the atmosphere. Absolutely stunning location. Romantic and wonderful views on patio. Food was good but a bit overpriced. Service was lacking in a lot of ways. No attention to detail. Dirty plates left on table too long, drinks not refilled, and you had to ask for everything, nothing offered or suggested. Will go back for the location, but food and service need a lot more refining.
Food was significantly below expectations. Olive Garden provides a better meal!
Chicken parmigiana was bland, and the spinach tagliatelle was pasty. The Bolognese sauce was virtually tasteless.
The room is big and provides nice table separation. Outdoor patio is inviting. Service was good.
brunched here yesterday... mused it would compare even slightly with other westin sunday brunch spots elsewhere, but not even remotely. "buffet" looked dog-tired shortly before noon, but even the offerings were below standard (think "eggs!", "bacon!", "sausages!") steam table eggs benedict looked hours old. skipped the buffet and ordered from menu. 14 dollar menu cocktails prepared incorrectly (flavorless gin fizz; golden gin fiz couldn't even be arranged). abominable service, or rather, lack of it. had to go and wrangle a waiter after waiting 15+ minutes for him to come back. waited 10+ minutes for 3 glasses of water. food arrived and did not look at all appealing. my short rib sandwich (open face) actually looked as though it may have been dropped on the plate, but i speculate). ineffectual roving supervisors glower over tables, never asking how things are. yes, i could have spoken to management, but it's obvious they have no control over this spots many flaws. and it's "resort hotel expensive", to boot. we'd just put an offer on a home in adjacent mission hills country club that morning, and thought to try the hotel's better restaurant to celebrate... well, first try was a no joy experience. at least valet parking is free when dining (validated).
Food was good but a little pricey for the quality. Average Prime Rib special was thinner than I liked. Waiter was non-existent and forgot my horseradish requested. When we arrived on-time for our open table reservation the hostess took a call after greeting us and made us wait to be seated. We were attending a concert and felt it was convenient but not a place I would travel to for Dinner.
Great restaurant on the Westin Mission Hills property. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. There was a mixture of business people finishing happy hour and villa or hotel guests. The outdoor dining was exceptional. We enjoyed the spaghetti and butcher block meatballs and a volcano pizza- recommend both!
This is hands down a five star restaurant with a two star price tag. Holy cow.
Amazing service!! So warm, friendly, sensitive and well timed. The various staff worked quietly like clock work. Just incredible.
Loved the food. Salads were incredibly fresh, and our entrees of pasta and pizza were exceptionally delicious.
Ambience was great: soaring ceilings yet cozy and generous furnishings. Although it was full, the tables were far enough apart to have private conversations
We were also pleasantly surprised by receiving a diecial dish as Open Table guests and we learned AAA membership gives You twenty percent off the total.
Amazing food! However....Had a reservation at 830 got seated quickly only it had to be at a high top table right in the busy lane of food servers and where others walked up to the tables. Not very romantic at all let alone peaceful in any sense of the word. Have more quiet at red Robin. Better to seat there with friends hanging out. Otherwise we would have had to wait another hour to be seated somewhere better. We didn't have time, as we we're going to a concert in 2 hours. We just made it too. We sat at 830 and finally got our desert at 10. Service was just okay. Ordered 2 drinks plus an ice tea. Never asked us if we wanted another drink and never even got the ice tea. Cheese plate was not good. But as I started with....food was amazing!!!
Service was not good. Food was fine, but should have had a better menu for Christmas. Bartenders didn’t care and it seemed like we were just another person on Christmas Day even though the restaurant wasn’t that busy. Nice property, but get your act together.
Our first time to Pinzimini. It was the Christmas Day dinner buffet. Don't always have high expectations for the food quality on a hotel restaurant buffet and this was about what we expected, but the value was there. The space of the restaurant is very nice. I could see coming back and trying the main menu sometime. Service was mediocre that night, but with buffets, service is a lot less organized typically. Hard to judge too much on this holiday as it is more out of the norm.
I have had many dinners @ this restaurant before. My meat was very tough and not edible. I had given my steak to my Mother and I didn’t touch my dinner. Dessert was super sweet too. Dinner was discounted because of my dinner but they should have comped my meal as that’s the right thing to do.
Had a great time at Pinzimini. The staff was attentive and courteous and recognized is as return visitors. The chef also prepared a special tasting plate for us as a thank you for booking through OpenTable.
The food was great. Entree sizing was generous. My scallops had just the right amount of sear to give it a good texture without being over/under cooked.
Looking forward to returning again when I am visiting Palm Springs.
Perhaps the most dreadful meal ever attempted at a well-known hotel... Pleasant staff, the food is pathetically bad and very institutional. The chef has been there for 25 years, we were told. Well, something's very wrong here.
First to arrive is a tasting from the kitchen - an amusé bouche (to amuse the mouth). We weren't amused. Gloppy risotto with a prawn and some bitter tomato sauce, a fabulous imitation of bad airline food. It was a hot mess.
The lettuce on the Caesar Salad was dry and had brown marks where cut, meaning it wasn't freshly prepared. It was old lettuce. Nice. Not so much...
This is an "Italian" restaurant. The Chicken Parmesan was dry, the cheese on top re-hardened to a blob of something, the vegetables on the side were from a hot table, very overcooked and mushy. Two bites of the chicken and the diner said it was inedible, dry, unpleasant.
The Papardella with Bolognese sauce took the cake - it was presented with a wad of wide noodles which mostly stuck to each other. The meat sauce was gross - puddles of water amongst the finely ground meat and some flakes of tomato, no amalgamation of the ingredients into a sauce, it had separated, not cooked with some milk - a hallmark of a Bolognese - it had a funny after taste, rather odd, institutional. Three bites of this dish and the diner said I can't do it anymore, I'm not eating this.
The third diner enjoyed her Osso Bucco. The other two basically had nothing to eat, they left without eating dinner.
The Westin really needs to up their game here. This is amazingly bad hotel food at a "Resort". We felt sorry for the guests who come to this pretty hotel and must accept this poor quality of food or leave the property. We suggest the latter...
What can you say about a restaurant that brings a fabulous shrimp appetizer "on the house" to thank us for booking with Open Table. This was a first.
The whole Branzino was perfect and the spaghetti with meatballs was outstanding.
We started at happy hour and had amazing Poke too.
Pinzimini dining experience was fabulous. The food was outstanding especially the osso bucco and sea scallops. Desert was not only delicious but had a unique artistic presentation (chocolate lava cake). Our server was very attentive and provided great service. Great wine and drink selections as well. This place is however quite pricey but we enjoyed it nonetheless.
This is our third visit to Pinzimini’s. This time we brought a friend from San Francisco. All of us ordered the Branzino. Our friend is used to great food and excellent restaurants, however he was impressed with the fish and also the ambiance. We were told that this restaurant is the only one in Coachella Valley that serves a whole fish. The Branzino is to die for. We will be back and hope that this dish remains on the menu.
We had a 4 day stay at the Westin Mission Hills. We ate at the Pinzimini for 2 dinners and 1 breakfast. Every time we were greeted with friendly smiles, and a great balance of explanation of the menu and helpful hints as to what to choose. Coming from Canada, we always appreciate the quality of service offered at this resort and restaurant.
Also a special mention to our server on the night of the 12th. She was very charming, and in particularly helped the 3 kids at our table to pick a nutritious and delicious meal. No problem splitting a dish and all done with a smile. And to top it off, she very kindly called our room after we left to let my wife know that she had picked up (my wife's) phone which was left at the table. Everyone knows what a disaster a lost phone can be. So - my wife was super grateful for our server's kind actions in getting the phone back to her.
We look forward to next time - same time next year!
