This is my second time here and both have been FANTASTIC experiences. Beware that they have a very limited food menu, but an extensive bar
The rooftop is a beautiful setting. The ambience good food and service and wonderful company made this a great evening
Love the ambience! We still have not gotten to the roof deck. Next time.
Always perfect! Great staff and atmosphere!! 4th time there in a month!
Food and service and setting were all wonderful
I absolutely loved it here.. good vibe, excellent drinks and great service!
Ambience is what you pay for here. And the service was good. The food was average.
Excellent service! Delicious food! Would recommend for any occasion. Outside seating and tables spaced well.
The full moon set the stage, but dining outside around the pool was lovely. The heaters took away the chill of the desert evening. The Watermelon Margarita’s were a wonderful start to our dinner, and the always fabulous Watermelon Salad with the pistachios and lime honey drizzle was delicious. All of our entrees were very good, however the Swordfish was not my favorite. One of our party loved his Pesto Pasta, and the Salmon was wonderful ,as well. All in all, a perfect evening.
The food & vibe of Azucar is great but their wait staff needs some work... they repeatedly try to up sell you every. single. time.
One of the treasures of Palm Springs. Always enjoyable
Arrived for 12:30pm reservation, the friendly host seated us quickly. Busman served us water about 5 minutes later. Waiter came by about 10 minutes after being seated. We used mobile menu to review the lunch offering. Ordered ice tea/arnold palmer drinks and two orders of chicken wraps, one order sweet potato fries, one order of regular fries. Drinks came a few minutes later. 40 minutes of waiting in a steady but not slammed restaurant went by, no food. Waiter came by with two more drinks at 1:30pm to say they were a bit behind, but food would be coming out shortly. By 2:00pm after not seeing any staff in the outside area we were seated in some time, I stepped inside to ask about food. Host was once again nice, looked a bit perplexed when I told him no food had ever come, asked a couple of staff (neither our waiter) about things, then waiter came out of a door and said oh they are working on it right now. The host said there were issues, none of which he'd both to tell me about. Went back to our table. Waiter delivered 2 orders of chicken wraps - honestly a couple spoon fulls of chunked chicken on a couple leaves of Bibb lettuce, and the sweet potato fries. When asked about the regular fries, he gave the stare, the one that lets you know he completely forget about them. Several minutes later he arrived with them. We ate quickly - hell we were starving. Asked for the bill, waiter came out to say they gave us the "loyalty" discount (amounted to $5) and didn't charge for the regular fries. I have eaten 2-3 brunch meals here, 2-3 lunches here, 2-3 dinners here over that last few years. This WAS a place I felt I could go and get a good meal and enjoy myself and share it with family and friends. I can honestly say, this occasion had me thinking about ever returning. I waited a week to post this, I've cooled down and have kept this post without using expletives. Complete failure on the part of this restaurant.
We had a great time, sat out by the pool downstairs, which was nice for us. The roof was much more packed up, a little livelier. The food was very good, but the service was quite slow (they seemed understaffed on this particular night) and one of the entrees came out cold, the other warm. It was still good, so we didn’t bother stressing them out further. Overall, we’d go back for sure. If everything were on point, this place would be great.
wonderful location for a birthday party on the roof.
Just ok. The service and ambience are lovely but the items we ordered were uninspired. In the past, we’ve done better at lunch than dinner. No idea why. Nice space. Would go again but dinner the other night did not hit the high notes they’ve shown in the past.
Food was very good. We sat on the roof and the atmosphere was great. The only bad thing was that our food took forever to arrive. People who sat down after us were leaving before we got our food. The waiter bought our second round of drinks to make up for it, so thus 4 stars instead of 3.
AMAZING SERVICE! Everyone was GREAT!
We had an amazing experience on the rooftop for dinner, it was so beautiful. From the beginning when we met Laura the host, who graciously took care of us, to all the wait staff who were attentive and helpful - A+++ Thank you immensely.
Absolutely loved our experience here! Josh was a phenomenal server, the food and drinks were incredible and the ambiance is one of the best I’ve ever dined in.
A very cozy restaurant in a boutique hotel. Small menu but you want to order it all, and it tastes very farm-to-table! Will come back for sure and stay at the hotel too!!
Wonderful "special " evening on the rooftop :). Swordfish was spectacular and tenderloin was done perfectly. Pre-dinner Margaritas's were a little weak but the wine with dinner was perfect! Hummus with pita bread, olives and cheese was superb as an appetizer. Recommended by the wait person... thanks:)
Love this place. Great atmosphere, service, food and drinks. Never disappoints. Thank you.
The meal was wonderful, the atmosphere can’t be beat. Can’t wait to come back on our next visit to Palm Springs!
The food is mediocre at best. This is such an amazing venue - rooftop and poolside so beautiful. Great cocktails but lousy, lousy food. PLEASE find a good chef and start serving delicious food.
This is a wonderful restaurant if you want a fabulous view of the mountains at sunset. Great food, drinks, and atmosphere. Service is always excellent!! This is for adults only, no one under 21 allowed. If in palm Springs I highly recommend trying this restaurant.
Everything about this place is awesome.
The food was great but the service was even better.
Overall good experience. Bit awkward was that we were notified the chef left unexpectedly so no more hot food for lunch (after 3 pm) could being served. They could have said in the beginning that the restaurant would close, which seemed to be the case as nobody came in after about 330. Then we would have had the chance to change the order of foods.
LOVED the ambiance and the hostess Laura who checked in on us and chatted with us. Will definitely be returning for brunch or cocktails.
Great in so many ways, just had a particularly poor server— the rest of the staff was great.
Very cool atmosphere. Poolside dining or rooftop terrace are equally great options . Food was wonderful & the service was friendly & fun.
Love this place so much! Delicious food & great ambiance!
Must experience the ambiance.
Truly a romantic, unique setting, stars, pool setting with palm trees in every angle.
Best martini in Palm Springs.
We had dinner Saturday and lunch at Azucar on Sunday afternoon and Joshua was helping us and he was FANTASTIC! The drinks were out of this world, and he was very helpful and welcoming. Our dinner server Sunday night was... less so. We were staying at the hotel and he kept questioning whether we were guests at the hotel, as if he didn’t believe us when we told him. And he asked us at least three times. He was not very attentive or accommodating and it felt like he had decided we were not up to par to be there or something so he just left us alone. Idk. It was uncomfortable. I don’t think it was a reflection of the restaurant... which we thoroughly enjoyed the two other times we dined there. Wish I could remember who was helping us, whoever was bartending upstairs on Sunday night. Definitely the worst part of our three experiences dining there. I don’t like to have to try to convince my server that I am in fact a guest at their establishment-and I’m sure he could have looked us up? We gave him our full name and room number. It was just kind of absurd.
The food was delicious and the drinks were creative and refreshing just like the atmosphere. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of downtown so you really feel like your on an escape. We road out bikes and there was no place to lock the bikes up, but they allowed us to lock them to the handrail.
Love the ambiance. Food needs some work.
Great food and location. Excellent service from our server, Junior. I would come back just because of him -he was super fun and friendly and took our experience to the next level.
Ambiance is what you are going here for rooftop was amazing as well as entrance through pool area. Food was ok not a big selection off menu and service was ok.
Wonderful experience. Clean and safe. Incredible food and service.
A lovely evening sitting outside. I recommend going there for an extremely pleasant evening. Food and ambience excellent.
