    My husband and I had the most delicious dinner here. The whole experience was wonderful. We would highly recommend. So many delicious food items to choose from. And Nichole, our server, couldn’t have been more attentive. The auxiliary servers were so attentive as well. We are looking forward to going back. A can’t miss experience. And the drinks were imaginative and delicious.

    This was my 2nd time to Alice B. I was disappointed. . On my first visit I had the 14oz New York. It was delicious. I raved about it to all my friends. Last night, when I returned, I was hoping to have the same. However, instead they had the same entree but with a Rib Eye instead of a New York. It was very disappointing. It was fatty, as rib eyes are, very little flavor and overall very different from my first experience. Even more disappointing was that they charged the same amount, $61.00 for a rib eye. I asked the wait staff if they change the menu every night and I was told that they change the cuts of meat each week.. I look for three things when going to a resturant, great food, great service and consistency. Sadly I will not return.

    What a great experience! First time to try this new restaurant to Palm Springs. Have followed these chefs for years - from Border Grill in LA days. Impressed with the food, service and environment. Heard the dining room was loud - so we choose to sit in the lounge area which was terrific. I had the ribeye and partner had the chicken. Both good choices. The biscuits to start were a treat - the honey was amazing. Prices are high - but on par with other fine dining restaurants, these days. We look forward to a return visit soon.

    Far too noisy. Made reservations for a Tuesday evening, only to find out that it was Piano Night and that only bar food was available. We moved tables because of the noise, and even then it was excessive. It’s not an enjoyable experience when you can’t have a conversation with the people you are dining with.

    Very disappointing. First, we had a reservation specifically for the bar area but when we arrived we were told the bar area was full. So what’s the point of taking reservations if you aren’t actually going to hold them? Then we were seated in the dining room. The noise level from the performer was over the top, forcing us to have to shout to have a conversation. The server was well intentioned but spoke so quietly it was very difficult to communicate with all the noise. The food was rather mediocre for a restaurant with such a pedigree. The baked macaroni was cafeteria-level, the burger was nothing remarkable. Very disappointing.

    Alice B has a very short menu. Mains consisted of two beef, one pork, one fish, and two vegetarian choices. There is a ridiculously short wine menu to match. The cooking is very good, but we won't be going again to partake of the boring offerings.

    Great service and attention to detail. The food was very good and definitely shareable as our waitress told us. Only negative for us was that the biscuit weren’t made the day we were there - guess we’ll have to go back! I bought Chef Feniger’s cookbook and will also now need to go back to have it signed! Kind of wish they would have some signed copies there.

    The Branzino was one of the best dishes I’ve had! Also loved the yellow tail crisp and cauliflower leek soup. It would be nice if there were more gluten free options. Not sure if there was flour in the Steak Diane gravy, but my friend had some issues afterwards

    All flavors are terrific! Inventive recipes. Don't miss the Cornmeal Cheddar Drop Biscuits!! Cauliflower Leek soup is fabulous. Cauliflower wedge is Perfect. Crispy Smashed Potatoes excellent. I'd pass on the pork shoulder - very good flavors, but anything but tender - sorry. Very attentive service. Ambiance is pleasant and elegant. Especially good for special occasions.

    I was very excited to check out Alice B - meeting Susan Feniger was the highlight hands down. After we were initially seated, we were forgotten about - after about 10-15 minutes, I went up to the host station to ask for a server. The food was okay - maybe my expectations were high since it has gotten so much attention - not sure if it was good enough to return.

    Overall the experience was disappointing. The main dining room is quite loud, making it difficult to have a normal conversation. We waited quite some time for anyone to come over to our table to greet us and take our drink orders. Once our drink orders came we waited another lengthy period for anyone to come back to the table. The food preparations were a great temperature bit the flavors missed for us. All in all quite dissapointed…..
