    A few items on the menu have a name we are familiar with, but the ingredients stray too far away. If you are going to offer a shepherd's pie, there are standard ingredients to a shepherd's pie including a crust. Otherwise it's meat and potatoes and vegetable on a plate, which should have a different name. Overall everything was fantastic everything I ate was great and my family had a great time. Service top notch as well!

    This was our first time at 1501 Uptown Gastropub. We loved it! The service was excellent and we loved the ambience. I got the "Rueben" sandwich and it was delicious. One of our party got the 1501 burger - loved it. And the other got the "other" burger (can't recall the name) and said it was the juiciest burger ever. Cooked perfect. The star of the dinner was the appetizer - The Pretzel. I loved pretzels. It had to be the best pretzel I have ever had!

    My family and I visited Palm Springs on vacation and of all the restaurants we went to, 1501 Gastropub was our favorite. The food was outstanding! The french fries were the best we’ve ever had. My daughter has avocado toast and it was very flavorful. My husband and son had burgers and they were perfectly cooked and delicious.

    The food was absolutely wonderful. The sourdough pretzel was delicious as a starter. Our group had the steak frites (with a salad instead of the frites), Willie's Shepherds Pie, Mary's "Chicken under a brick" and the Cherry basalmic braised pork shoulder. Everything was fantastic. For dessert we went with the bread pudding and the berry crumble and it was also outstanding. The only reason the scores weren't perfect across the board was because we'd asked for indoor seating, but was placed in an open doorway and had to fight the desert wind throughout the meal. Would happily return to try more options whenever we return to town.

    We had a nice lunch, had a reservation, and were sat in nice table quickly. Then we got the menus, and nobody else came for a ling time as we looked at the menu, but had no water, and couldn’t order drinks. When she came it was all better, and everything was nice.

    Food was delivered super fast. Friend's burger was done to specification, split plates were divided by the kitchen which was very nice. Braised short ribs were delicious but the meat was not very hot and not quite fork tender. Green goddess salad fell short of expectations, we added more dressing and squeezed some lemon to help. Cocktails were ho-hum. Nice space, 2 big TVs over the bar let us see games but did not take the place into sportsbar territory.

    Extremely disappointing experience after a fun 3 days in Palm Springs. Appears to be a very popular place - we can only assume that's because the portions are large and the place has a cool vibe. Menu items sound much better than they actually are. Had dinner and drinks - sent food and drinks back (burgers were served raw, the brine in our martinis had gone bad), then couldn't eat half of the food, tried to, and then two of our party of four got sick that night after our meal. Appetizers were fine. We won't be returning.

    Outside of the unfriendly and not accommodating host staff, our meal/service was great as usual. Made a 5:15 pm reservation a week before as usual but when they seated us, it was in the worst table in the restaurant, right in the sun and no umbrella was going to help with the heat. Asked to be seated on the south patio but all I got was “we have a party of 11 at 7:15”. The host FINALLY allowed us to sit in that area, two hours before their “party of 11” was to arrive. Our server was GREAT and the food was great as well. I guess everyone has a bad night.

    Service was excellent, ambiance is great. Drinks are great. Food is overpriced and has no flavour. $14 for a bowl of corn chowder, $18 for wings, $35 for shepherd’s pie. Great for drinks and appies. Skip the mains. No great gluten free options.

    The building is beautiful! Lots of space on outdoor patio. Very quiet outside, inside is busy pub atmosphere. Food was very good. The Cobb salad would be better served tossed as this was difficult in a full bowl. Loved the chicken under brick-very moist! Short rib also excellent. The Shepherd’s pie is deconstructed so not what we expected but flavor and filet was very good. Bread pudding and ice cream was delicious! Will return soon!

    Had out-of-town guests and we raved about this place for days. While the food and the cocktails were good, the service was not up to par as previously experienced. We felt rushed and we felt like too many people who didn’t know what was going on kept approaching us so the service didn’t feel special. I hope that this place does not deteriorate because of its popularity because it was SO GOOD before! 🤞🏽🤞🏽🤞🏽

    Stopped in for dinner tonight upon a recommendation from a friend who lives in the area. Nice place, with decent menu; lots to pick from. My wife liked her reuben and I my short rib sandwich. We had to eat at the bar since our reservations were for outside and we didn't want to eat in the sand storm that was going on. The bartender, Daniel was friendly and did check on us inbetween mixing drinks. The food was really good and the prices were par for the course for the area. Good place, and we'd stop back agin the next time we're in the area.

    Loved everything about this place. I sat at the bar and ordered a bowl of corn chowder and a margarita. Both absolutely hit the spot. The bartender was both attentive and friendly and even brought me some yummy toasted bread to go along with my soup just because. I love how, whether you are sitting inside or outside, it’s like you’re sitting on a patio. The staff seemed like they loved their jobs and were having fun. I will definitely return to this gem the next time I’m in Palm Springs!

    Mother’s Day brunch. Reservation was 145 and we were unaware the restaurant closes at 2 PM. Our orders were taken slightly after two. One course was ordered with no cocktails. Meal came out uneventful and good. But because it was so late, not even asked if we wanted dessert just check put on the table.

    My wife and I are regulars at 1501. There is a reason for that. It’s simple because they are consistently great. Yesterday for Saturday Brunch was no exception. The staff seems genuinely happy to be there and it’s reflected in the service. Our Server was Lexy and she was absolutely great. Extremely personable, warm, friendly and very efficient. To us, the staff is part of the overall experience and Lexy was a great addition to our experience. The food is excellent. We’ve had numerous different dishes and they’ve all been made to perfection. Yesterday I had the Bene which I love. My wife had the Pulled Pork Sandwich. Again great. A big plus on the menu is that there is excellent variety. Something for every food mood you’re in. We love the setting. Sitting outside under an umbrella felt so good. It’s a very relaxing casual feeling. If you go at night, their lighting also feels very relaxing and welcoming. Needless to say, we highly recommend 1501 Uptown Gastropub.

    I send all my friends here and love the place. They run a quality restaurant with great drinks and food. My only suggestion would be that they don't salt their burgers so much. And please offer some more salad options. I have only one option of the Blue Crab salad which is amazing but other than that it's all pretty heavy.
