Situated in the magnificent courtyard of the Colony Palms Hotel, the restaurant design evokes the glamour of the 1930’s and 40’s when the Colony Palms was “the” place to be seen in Palm Springs. Amazing food, stunning decor, mountain views, and gracious service…what more can be said?

    We ate at the Purple Palm the night restaurants were cut back to 50% capacity. The team at the Purple Palm were amazing and this was our best meal in Palm Springs. We look forward to returning again. Truly a lively place with a peaceful atmosphere.

    Great Sunday brunch location! We enjoyed the outside seating at poolside. Jeffrey provided great service and we started with mimosas, cold brewed iced coffee and The Purple Gang. We chose 3 entrees to share - their incredible Brioche French Toast, BLTA Croissant, and the blackened fish tacos. A perfect sampling and enjoyed all dishes.

    Reserved on Open Table and never given the option to dine outside, so thought it was a given since many of the photos featured outdoor dining. Apparently outdoor seating is reserved for guests of the hotel. Even though there were seats available outside, we were seated in the back corner of the inside of a restaurant. We felt like the party was outside and we were not invited. Service was poor and inattentive. The food was average. There was no manager or anyone who stopped by our table or even as we left to ask about our dining experience. There were still empty tables outside when we left.

    Food was just okay. Fries were limp and veggie burger fell apart and I had to eat it with a fork. Friend with me said burger was flavorless. Waitress took order and then we didn’t see her again until she brought the check. Won’t be going back!

    The restaurant is beautiful, including the outdoor space near the pool (where we dined for lunch). Servers were very attentive and nice. And my glass of Vermentino wine was delicious. But the food was mediocre and overpriced. In the future, I would go there for a drink at the bar and to see the beautiful hotel, but I wouldn’t eat there again

    What a wonderful evening we had at the Purple Palm! You couldn't have a nicer setting, alongside the pool. For the first minutes, there seemed to be some confusion about who was going to be our server, but once that was settled, we had great service. I loved the beet salad and the salmon. It was a really special evening.

    Went for Valentine's Day. Lovely old style hotel . Would have preferred the regular menu (more choices) but the salads, ribs and salmon were excellent. Lobster risotto a bit disappointing . Deserts lovely. Sat outside so lovely view and heaters for warmth .our server was stellar. One of us tried to charge his Tesla at a charger station on site but it didn't work.

    There were four of us and while their food was very good I had a black bean burger that was extremely salty. Actually, one of the three people had a shrimp dish and said it was salty. The restaurant and hotel is gorgeous. The persons were slow at acknowledging us at arrival.

    Best dining Experience my wife and I have had in the past year. Food was outstanding quality and well prepared by the chef. Scallops starter, beet salad and entrees were salmon and pork tenderloins. Great bottle of Hahn wine. We had outstanding service from the entire dining room staff. It was a quiet Tuesday night so it was easy to talk and no rushing to finish meal. Definitely would recommend to other people visiting Palm Springs and we will visit again
