About Purple Palm at the Colony Palms Hotel
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?

Purple Palm at the Colony Palms Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The Purple Palm has the most attentive wait staff ! Any request is met with a smile and such professionalism! The setting is beautiful for breakfast, lunch or dinner! A best kept secret in Palm Springs! The management should be so proud of the staff that makes all customers want to come back for more!!!
We only get to PS from time to time but always try to get to this restaurant twice each visit . We go only once this visit however. The ambience was excellent and the service was friendly and prompt but the food was not quite as it used to be and we each felt it was a bit disappointing. Perhaps next spring we'll try again to see if it has regained its former level.
Hadn't been to Purple Palm in a while and now wonder why. Service was great, food very creative and beautifully presented. And, the atmosphere is fantastic. Views of the mountains and indoor/outdoor feeling of the place is very Palm Springs. We'll be going more often.
Perfect!! Last time we were in we specifically told the server to pace the meal slow...she didn't at all...we were in and out in :45 with 3 courses! Way too fast for us. We waited to order entrees until we were through our starters and problem was solved. Couldn't find a thing to complain about. The duck was perfect, octopus was good but a small portion. Beet salad yummm
Thank you for another memorable meal.
I looked for a romantic place to take my lovely wife of 40 years. I found it-and much more- at the Purple Palm. The ambience is intimate, cozy, serene, and just plain lovely. The service was immaculate, and the food superb. And, as a totally unexpected treat, the couple at the next table also celebrated a birthday, and the place made us comfortable sharing our celebratory mood with them.
Seated next to an uplit pool, with no noise from the street spoiling the scene, we spent one of the best evenings of our lives there. What a gem of a place!
Been dining here off and on since 2008. Experiences have been up, down and sideways. This was one of our best dinners at PP. The ambience has always been 5 stars; may be the prettiest setting in the area. The menu has again been revised and is more creative without being fussy than it has been in a long time. Eggplant and crab fritter appetizers were excellent; fresh ingredients, beautifully presented and very flavorful. Mains were the pork shank and monkfish. Both were excellent, generous portions, enjoyable sides. Dessert was a pineapple and burnt orange tart which again was terrific. Service was warm and friendly, well informed, prompt w/o being rushed. Here's hoping that the quality of this experience stays consistent and we can make PP our go-to occasion spot for ourselves and for out-of-town visitors.
Food was good but overpriced. Strip steak didn't have much flavor and sauce was overpowering. Pork belly quite good. Food server was excellent. However we were told we couldn't be seated where we wanted (2 person booth) because so many people were coming. 4 people seated on our side of restaurant when we arrived. 12 seated when we left. Annoying that there was either no flexibility or they really didn't know how to manage reservations. When we gave feedback they explained again they needed seating for 100 people that night. Makes no sense and lack of flexibility so annoyed us we left without dessert.
The restaurant location is magical, the service is attentively convenient and informative.
as for the food i can only say one of the best meals we've had in California, the Duck dumpling was a favorite and the octopus was awesome.
the Pork Shank is to die for and i can go on and on but definitely a place not to miss in Palm Springs.
Based upon reviews wanted a nice romantic dinner with wife. Food was excellent and so was the service. The negative was the accoustics and noise level. No chance to be heard w/o almost yelling. Small place. Gets crowded and loud. Not romantic dinner but the grounds are ok for a small stroll.
Terrific. Great cocktails. Entrees were excellent, thoughtfully prepared and flavors complimented each other perfectly. Had the pork shank and wife had the monkfish. Both were recommended by our waitress and they did not disappoint. Great ambience and a great hotel as well.
We see this place pop up on OT frequently and we finally tried it out and it's worth a visit. Interior feels like Mexican/Italian motif. Food we good along with the cocktails and our server was awesome! Arrive early or stay late to get a drink outside by the pool. Well return.
Our party of 3 enjoyed our meal. There was a nice selection of cocktails, including light cocktails, to start the evening. Everyone's appetizers and entrees were delicious and serving sizes were just right. We truly enjoyed the Roasted Pineapple & Preserved Lemon Tart dessert.
We stayed at the Colony Palms and wanted to try Purple Palm for dinner. Chefs were quite imaginative with the menu. Some items worked some did not. My dumplings were yummy with lots of flavor. The tomato pasta was much to acidic to enjoy. Hubby sort of liked his steak but was in the mood for a real steak, not beef that had been dressed up with root veggies, etc. I think the menu is perfect, tho, for the SoCal Crowd.
We had a wonderful time and Catherine was a great waitress. She was very attentive even though she had several busy tables. I don't think they told her we were celebrating an anniversary, but it didn't matter as she made the evening a complete joy. The food was very nice. The bar service here is always slow... not sure why it take so long to get a drink regardless of how busy the are.
This place is absolutely beautiful! Wow! We had breakfast and ordered the brioche French toast and eggs Benedict. Bother were abosolutely amazing. The French toast was the best thing I have ever had out for breakfast. Service was great and the setting of this historic hotel had the feel of old Hollywood vacationing in Palm Springs. I will go back!
Huevos Rancheros were great and the French toast was delicious though a tad too dessert-like to eat often. Avocado with sea salt and ham on the side can become your own avocado toast with a little effort. Pleasant staff and view of the lively pool area. Very enjoyable. Complimentary valet is a nice bonus.
We had a nice meal though it was very rushed. We had asked the server to bring the food slowly and it was the exact opposite. We couldn't eat fast enough! I asked them not to start food until we had cocktails, it arrived within 3 minutes, and every course - on our last bite of the prior course. 4 - courses in an hour!
The food was delicious and the views are amazing. The server was delightful. We will return but next time order as we go!
