    For brunch it was pretty good. AWE is definitely geared for the night life scene. The food was really good and well presented. I had different expectations than what it actually was. In short very good food, staff was friendly and if I am in the area again I would give it another shot

    Food was excellent but the service needing a lot of improvement. The servers were all nice, but pulled in different directions as the other side of the building was open for entertainment. We waited exactly one hour for our food to arrive and no one checked on us while we waited or offer to get us another drink. I think they simply were overwhelmed and didn't plan for the additional people due to the entertainment.

    Great vibe! Excellent food. Service just ok. But it’s the desert. What do you expect?! We came for brunch. Will definitely come back. Can’t wait to see live music here in the evening.

    Such a fantastic place, stylish and a much needed venue to add to Yucca's line up. The food needs rethinking from scratch. Everything was 100% either salty, sweet, hot or vinegar! there was no reprieve from too much flavour, no fresh crisp thing to clean the palette between the onslaught of spice! At least I can just go for drinks and music

    A group of family/friends attended for brunch after a wedding weekend. The food was great and so were the drinks- especially the mexicali cola. The service was horrible though. There was maybe 2 small tables outside of our party close to when they opened and our server was barely around. We had to split our own checks and it took a total of 40 minutes just to check out. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to go again.

    It was just “ok”. The food wasn’t great, the drinks were odd and not flavorful, music was loud for the small space. I had high hopes but was disappointed.

    Awesome spot. So great to finally have a “nice” restaurant/bar/venue in town. And one that still maintains the groovy vibe of the desert at that. Good food, good drink selection, super friendly service, venue looks and sounds fresh off the press. I recommend doing a taco trio. They’re still working out some minor kinks with the flow of the space, but they’re brand new so it’s to be expected and didn’t affect our experience at all. Overall they’ve absolutely killed it. We hope to be regulars.

    Welcome to 2022, Yucca Valley!! We finally have somewhere decent to eat. Went to Awe Bar tonight, and man, it's so nice not to have to drive to Palm Springs for a decent dinner. Good food, great drinks, professional service. Not all of us want to eat cheap crap trucked in by Cisco, there's plenty of that putrid junk around here. More places like this please!!

    First time in this new spot. Food and service were terrific - interesting menu, good value. Acoustics make it pretty loud - there is outdoor seating, but the location is right on a four-lane highway so... not necessarily a place for a nice,quiet night out indoors or out. We'll return.

    What a warm and welcoming place! Service was on point...excellent and attentive--Simone was her name. The Shrimp Seviche was fabulous and served with a BOWL of tortilla chips (I felt guilty for not eating more but there were a lot). The Elote Salad had a beautiful sweetness from the corn and the Squash Blossoms were loaded with goat cheese. My husband felt the Hearts of Palm Seviche was a bit spicy, but he has a hard time with spicy foods. Give them a try...and Welcome to Yucca Valley!

    The setting in the lounge area was a little dark and despite the fact there was no one there we were sat next to the kitchen door. The food took forever and a half to come out and then was way oversalted. They made up for it by being super nice and discounted the meal by offering us drinks and desert on the house. I will definitely come back because I think they are just getting their act together and it promises to be a cool venue especially once they get the live music going.

    The tapas were good but the main course came with fries enough for an entire table. At this price point we need options for sides. Also food was either salty or overly sweet, Chimchurri Steak was smothered not topped. First place I've ever been where I could not find a salad to eat as a meal choice because of the ingredient mixes.

    It's a hip place, but expensive for what you get but good, cockatails are very minimal for price. Parking is a very inconvenient. Our server was very nice and the staff very attentive.

    This place is beautiful and I can’t wait to go back when they have musical guests. We shared the Elote Salad which was amazing. My husband got the Shrimp Ceviche (it is an appetizer), and he said it was good, but the amount of ceviche to chips was ridiculous. They need to make it twice as much ceviche and half the amount of chips. I had the BBQ Mushroom Burger. I have to say I was disappointed. I suppose it was my fault for not asking questions, but I assumed it was a veggie patty they had made using mushrooms. Unfortunately, it was just a portobello mushroom cap. They really should put that in the description. I find portobello mushrooms tasteless and rubbery, so needless to say I wasn’t a fan, and to be honest the rest of the burger ingredients were blah as well. I did overhear another customer ask about the burger and she too was disappointed to hear it was just a mushroom cap. Oh well! We will go back and next time I’ll try something different.

    Loved Awe Bar! As locals we have eagerly anticipated their opening for a long time. Coming open night, we were honestly nervous that operations might be a mess. Not the case at all. The service was wonderful. The staff was unbelievably friendly. The food was very good. The space is awesome. Such a great moody vibe. Sophisticated in an unpretentious way, which in our view the area so desperately needed. Only tiny mixup was that our drinks seemed to have a couple ingredients mixed up. But no big deal, wasn't even worth mentioning at the time. We still enjoyed everything. And will certainly be back, especially when the music venue side opens. Major props to Awe Bar.
