    1501 is a regular for us as it is casual and good value. We really love it when the big doors are open and can eat outside. Sometimes we find that the music is a little loud making it hard to hear each other in conversation but when asked, they will lower it with no problem which is very nice.

    We were early for our reservation, so we opted to sit / eat at the bar. Service & staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. We all came for, and had, the Beef Stroganoff- and it did NOT disappoint. First time here, but it certainly won’t be our last!! Thank you!!!

    I had the short ribs which were good and was very tasty but the portion was dinky. I left still Hungary. My friend had the burger which was great and the onion rings were terrific. Finished off with a root beer float which was fun

    Food was good, but overall felt like a fast food sit down type of experience. I appreciate quick service, but no joke — it was 45 minutes from seated to done. I finished my cocktail for desert.

    The food is always quite good at 15 0 1. Typically, so is the service, but yesterday was a poor show. The server never came back to check on us after taking our order. Busboys brought the food; we had to flag down people to bring condiments, refills of sodas, etc. Of course, the server showed up to bring us the bill...and then stood waiting for us to add the tip. I must say that this is NOT typical for 1501. Let's hope it was a one-off.

    Disappointing. My friend and I have eaten at 1501 two or three times before and the food was very good. We both had the 1501 burger. I asked for mine to be cooked med. rare, which it was, however the meat was a pale pink inside. My burger had little taste, no seasoning in the meat at all. This burger features bacon, cheese and a tomato jam. I had to scrape off the tomato jam as it was very sweet. The bacon was delicious. So, I’m hoping that this was just an off day. I will try the restaurant again as it’s convenient for me and I like the casual but fun atmosphere.

    1501 Uptown Gastro Pub provides reliable service, drinks, food, and vibrant atmosphere! Our knowledgeable and friendly server Melissa is attentive and made excellent recommendations. The menu has something for everyone and dishes are consistently good. A lively restaurant and good for people watching. It’s a good place to bring people from out of town as well as every night dining.

    We ate outside and noise level was low. Outdoor heaters helped. Our large party praised the food and service. My brother was amazed at the amount of meat in Willy’s pie - he took home half for lunch for tomorrow. I mentioned the birthday when we got there and they brought an awesome birthday dessert - best candle ever. I had the Mahi Mahi which was delightful with a hearty pea and corn “stew” and very satisfying.

    Prices seem to have increased substantially since our last visit. The shepherd 's beef pie was OK, even if assembled from pre-cooked components as would be usual. Lemon/lavender creme brulee is a real desert treat Service was glacially slow, and the server had to be flagged down for any desired service.

    It all came down to the server. Flippant, casual. I haven’t experienced that there before. Even the guys who delivered the food didn’t/couldn’t look us in the eye - just placed the food in our direction. There are too many good/great restaurants in Palm Springs to have to put up with that unengaging service. We won’t be rushing back there.

    Possibly the best sandwich I've ever had, the Cubano. It was thick with meat and very juicy, where sometimes they are dry. The first bite was all I needed to know. I was only going to eat half and take half home, but I had to finish it right there. Very comfortable restaurant. I didn't like the pounding drumbeat music, but that's personal taste. I sat at the bar and the bartender was very speedy and very attentive. Great experience.

    We just went for a quick lunch. The menu has a good variety. We both had corn chowder which was very good and quite hot. We followed this with a sandwich which also was good. The included fries were especially tasty. Our server was in a big hurry and didn't communicate well. We had to wait quite a while to receive the check as he was busy with many other tables. The prices are very high for just soup and sandwich. They are open on Mondays (many PS restaurants are closed).
