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?

Parties of 5 or more, please call Purple Palm directly.

Purple Palm is back! After up & down experiences over the past several years, we have now had two recent terrific dinners here. Top notch food & service. Shared two apps, curry roasted cauliflower & a short rib between the 3 of us. Both great though the short rib was the stand out. Each main was distinct, flavorful, fresh with well paired sides. Disappointed when told the grouper had sold out was more than happy with second choice swordfish. Roasted pineapple tart for dessert lived up in quality to what came before. Warm, friendly & efficient service included bringing water & a blanket for our pooch to lay on. Bravo!

I made a reservation for the last lunch seating but when I arrived they said the kitchen was closed up so we could only order from a very limited bar menu that had very ordinary offerings like hamburgers and cesar salad. So I was disappointed that I did not get what I thought I had made a reservation for.

It is a very nice setting if you were sitting outdoors. Could be noisy indoors. Our waiter, we believe his name was Louis, was impeccable

Love love love love. The food is top notch. The service is wonderful. The ambiance is beautiful. Best dessert I’ve ever had. Want to do something nice for yourself in Palm Springs? Go here. As far as fancy restaurants go, this one is a cut above the rest.

Spectacular flavors in the food, friendly but slow service, noise level beyond comfort. Impossible to have a conversation.

We went for brunch thinking this was going to be a top notch experience. We were very wrong. The menu was uninspiring.

The Bloody Mary was too spicy so instead of making another with less spice, he ‘topped it up’ with tomato juice and never inquired again. It then just tasted like tomato juice.

The English muffin with the Eggs Benedict was so tough to cut through I couldn’t eat it. The coffee we ordered was not refilled.

The small kids in the pool were crying and splashing around us. We didn’t expect so many little children by the pool.

When asked how everything was, we said we had better and it wasn’t good. He just shrugged his shoulders and said oh, sorry.

Bad experience and won’t go back.

Purple Palm at the Colony Palms Hotel is absolutely delightful. We went after dark, so it was even more charming. The menu is imaginative, and the portions are reasonable and priced well. Service was gracious, warm, and friendly. There are some very interesting items on the menu showing great promise, and the starters, mains, and desserts held to that promise. For a special evening of quiet relaxation, dine outdoors in the winter (plenty of heaters); it's a bit more private and romantic. Inside has a measured "hustle and bustle," but it seemed equally gracious and convivial.
