Wonderful food and great service in an elegant setting! The pork belly dumplings were outstanding.
Service and food exceptional, and the courtyard view of the pool made it perfect!
Had a lovely time at Purple Palm with my boyfriend. Our favorite dish was the pork dumplings (we ordered two plates) and the cocktails were great. It was quiet on a Monday night, which was perfect. We sat on the patio facing the pool, and it was intimate and cozy. Though on the pricier side, we had a lovely time and would highly recommend!
A great blend of the best of old and new Palm Springs. A perfect evening and just the right spot to celebrate my birthday. The service was top notch. Food delicious, hearty portions. Good people. An excellent guitarist. Provided the right vibe to a very atmospheric spot.
Loved our meal here! It was so pretty sitting outside by the pool with live music. The food was delicious and the service was awesome. We were here on vacation and it was the perfect end to a really great day.
As always an excellent choice while visiting Palm Springs, the ambiance is the best, we will be back
The Purple Palm never disappoints. The food was as always delicious & wonderfully presented. Our server Beverly very professional & attentive as was the staff.
Food was good but ambience was lacking. Sitting poolside while guests were romping and splashing around in the pool leaves little to be desired. Also hostess sat an extremely smelly man right next to our table which completely ruined our meal and sensory palate. The odor/smell was so bad we had to leave. With all the empty tables there, to sit an obviously repugnant smell right on top of us, was completely uncaring, distasteful and lacking in awareness.
Probably the worst food I’ve had in 12 years of visiting Palm Springs.
We loved everything we tried at the Purple Palm! Our favorite meal in Palm Springs! We went on a really quiet night and had a memorable experience.
Steak was well flavored but full of fat.
Sunday brunch was terrific. We had friends in from out of town. The outdoor seating is poolside and makes for excellent ambience and the real feel of a vacation in the desert...a completely laid back vibe of a life you wished you could live everyday. The menu was perfect...a little something for everyone but not too extensive that it was impossible to decide. There were plenty of breakfast and lunch items as well as healthy choices. The 4 of us had a variety including, traditional eggs, the cheeseburger, Caesar salad, and the egg sandwich on a croissant. Everyone was very pleased. We will definitely be back.
Great atmosphere and the food and staff were amazing.
Lovely atmosphere. Apps better than the entrees. Salmon was flavorless and forgettable.
Breakfast date with daughter pool side was fabulous
The ambience .. the food .. the service . Everything was absolutely amazing . It was recommended to us by a local and I was so impressed and happy that we got the chance to try it while we were visiting . I would highly recommend it .
Love the place. Great for casual dining with a touch of elegance. Food was superb and staff was exceptional.
Perfection. Thank you So much. Great service, food, and ambience,
This little gem has a very unusual esoteric menu. The food flavors are unique and sometimes compete with each other. Be sure to ask the waiter to describe the dishes that catch you interest. All in all, a veery nice treat.
Beautiful space both inside and out. Great servers. Menu quite good and excellent bar and wine list.
Always a great meal, unless they get full to capacity.
Good. I didn’t get my points for this reservation again ..: Not happy
The location of the hotel and restaurant is right in the heart of Palm Springs. This charming Spanish style location is relaxing and quiet. The restaurant is very nice and the service is excellent. Patricia took great care of us.
We ordered the chicken & bacon wrap sandwich and the House-Smoked Vietnamese sausage sandwich. Both were really delicious. We shared the caramelized banana chocolate hazelnut cake with salted caramel gelato for dessert. Excellent!
It was a memorable meal.
The food was good, steak was awesome..pork shank was good, rich! Loved the beet salad w/burrata.. The greeter was awesome!
Loved it, beautiful location, wonderful wait staff, excellent food.
Chef special menu, amazing food, service and excellent bourbon drink specials...
The Purple Palm is top of the list when entertaining people from out of town. It exudes the quintessential vintage Palm Springs vibe. Beautiful mountain views serve as the backdrop of the classic hotel and the pool with surrounding gardens.
On this occasion everyone in our party were completely satisfied with the inventive cocktails (Doll Squad is great!) and the delicious food - Grilled Octopus, Strozzapreti Pasta and Grilled Barramundi to mention just a few favorites.
All of this is brought together with professional, attentive, friendly service.
Looking forward to next time!
Cozy, hip dining room with outdoor seating overlooking the pool. Outstanding contemporary cuisine with very friendly, professional service. A hidden gem for casual upscale dining.
The host wasn’t very accommodating about seating arrangements
Great food, service & ambiance. Interesting menu.
The food here is great under the current chef. I especially love the octopus and the baramundi, but even the vegetarian pasta is incredible. You must sit outside - it is pool side and at least one of you will have a great view of the mountain, and it is very pleasant. You can watch the hotel guests at the pool. Inside it is a cacophony!
Friends Sunday night out
The menu was interesting and meals prepared with care; delicious. Our server was very attentive and a delight. The outside dining is picturesque, but it was too warm for the patio
when we arrive. The dining room is rather impersonal and pool goers coming and going a
distraction. The dining room is the only thing we found wanting.
As always U did not disappoint.. Everything was perfect from the presentation of the food; to the food it's self ; & the service was just wonderful.
One of our favorite places to dine out.
i think the chef wants to do something different with the various foods, but it just doesn't make it. salmon was in some kind of sauce that tasted awful and made the fish almost inedible. my daughter's strip steak was good, but everything else, from salad to veggies was just too different for my tastes.
Probably the best restaurant in Palm Springs. Old Movie Colony charm with really creative cuisine.
What a pleasant escape from the heat of the desert. The interior of the Purple Palm is exotic and the brunch choices delightful. Couple that with a very pleasant server and you have a good recipe for a fun meal.
I don’t why I didn’t points for my reservation
2 couples dined at PP last Saturday, celebrating 2 birthdays. Informed PP of birthdays when making reservation and again when seated.
The room was super noisy, even partially full and warm. Over 80 degrees, which the waiter noted was unavoidable having doors open to the pool non-stop. which resulted in damp bathing suit attired folks walking by our table on the way to the restrooms.
We were there during Restaurant Week, so ordered from the limited prix-fix menu. The food was good. The waiter was out-standing, recommending a red wine that we enjoyed. Pricey, but enjoyable. The complimentary hot bread was great.
All in, we spent about $100 / person. There are better options.
Solid food but atrocious, inattentive service - and this was on a slow night for them.
