Above all else, the food at the Colony Palms Hotel is beyond anything the Coachella Valley has ever experienced.

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?

Sometimes your expectations can get in the way. This was to be a really special evening. We combed through reviews and chose to celebrate my husband's birthday at the Purple Palm. We were seated outside by the pool. The weather was cooperating. Then we met Javier! What a delightful person. Javier was super knowledgable about the food. If we were choosing between two selections, he was full of information and when called upon, advice. He helped us pick out a super special bottle of wine. Of course, a great server can only do so much. At some point the food has to speak for itself--and it did! The albacore crudo was one of the most delightful dishes I can remember. Every bite was an explosion of citrus flavor to complement the fish. My husband's caesar salad was a hit, and his steak was out of this world. We had great hopes for a special night, and our expectations were blown away in the best way possible. Thank you chef! Thank you Javier!

The food quality and taste is so unbalanced. The raw material are fresh, I can tell from the fruit shape and cut, tenderness of fish and steak. But the sauce and taste created by some ingredients combination is not my style. They are to the extreme of salty and sweetness that I can bear. But some people may like it cooked in this way.
Good side about the restaurant is they are fully prepared for the Valentine’s Day, service is very quick and prompt. But to me, the taste of food ruined our night.

The Chateau Marmount of Palm Springs! A stylish, classy and possibly notorious venue. You will not want lunch to end and wish you had the time to get a room or sunbathe at the pool to keep the vibe going.

Absolutely loved our meal at The Purple Palm. Celebrated our anniversary and they treated us to a delicious dessert. Will definitely be back!

I am sorry to say that it was not good. The cauliflower was just boiled with bbq sauce, and the octopus was mushy. The scallops were nice but not what you would expect from Purple Palm. Not up to their standards. Very disappointing. Ambience is lovely and server was good. It will be a long time before we give it another try

VERY relaxing atmosphere for visiting/dining and the food and service are spectacular!

Vibrant bar scene for me means the cocktails were amazing! Fresh combinations of remarkable flavors that we wanted to savor. You can sit poolside if you want to or in the sweetness of the dining room. We chose the dining room and had a romantic take in the corner.
Amazing octopus, sweet, tender and perfectly seasoned, swordfish was delicious and the strip steak done just as asked.
I will visit again as soon as we are back in Palm Springs.

Always a delight, one of our favorite restaurants in Palm Springs. Great cocktails, inventive menu, beautiful ambiance and outstanding service! Our server helped us make a birthday celebration for a close friend visiting from out of town, an amazing evening! Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner a great spot for a memorable experience while soaking up that Palm Springs sun!
