Three of us had lunch poolside at Azucar. The House Made Guacamole was delicious and the Rooftop Lemonade was very refreshing. The swordfish Tacos were oh so tasty! The Beef Sliders looked great, but I was slapped when attempting to steal a bite! The Ahi Bruschetta also looked scrumptious, but I learned my lesson and didn't even try it. The service was fairly good, but there was room for improvement. Overall it was a great second visit, and I look forward to going back soon.

Our server, Ezekiel, was fantastic. He was so friendly and attentive and really made our experience memorable. So great to see people who enjoy their work and do it well. Azucar is all around a must see. Fantastic vibe/decor and food and drinks never disappoint. I will frequent here every time I’m in Palm
Springs!

First time here and we will definitely be back! Beautiful setting around quiet pool area (I think they close it during dinner) Lovely background music but a little too loud for my husband's liking. Service is excellent! Very friendly and not overly attentive. The food was delicious and fresh, we both had the crab stuffed poblano (so very filling!) My cocktail, the Palm Collins, was just what I needed on a hot summer night!! We are going to come back and stay in one of their cozy little casitas tucked away around the area. Seems very private, quiet and beautiful 🥰🥂🌴

Was on holiday in palms springs wanted a beautiful ambiance. We on a Sunday afternoon typically brunch time but not a lot of brunch menu items... i still loved the cocktails and my server. Menu limited for vegans said the cauliflower tacos aren’t vegan which is very weirs but overall i love it here and will be back.

As a new resident to the Coachella valley I was very excited to see in person this establishment. I had been following on Instagram and the vibe and food looked wonderful. My first experience was with my husband, we had a meeting and just wanted a before dinner cocktail and appetizers. We were dressed in nice attire and presented to ask for a table. We were met by a very unfriendly young woman who preceded to treat us like we were a bother rather than a customer.
We were told (on a Thursday at 3:30 ) that there wasn’t availability, the place had one occupied table. We explained that we would not linger as we need to be somewhere in an hour and a half. She reluctantly sat us (at the table right next to other guests) then told us we needed to be finished within an hour as she has reservations coming in. I’ve never experienced such blatant judgement and downright unprofessional rudeness. Until...fast forward 4 months later when again I decided to give them another try. Our friends were visiting from out of state. I made the reservation for 4 at 8:15 requested the rooftop seating, which I saw is not guaranteed. We arrived to a different host, a bit friendlier but I really felt again like I was being dismissed. Was told there was no seats available on the roof for a party of 4, and wanted to seat us in a corner downstairs ( the least impressive table) I politely mentioned my request to be on the roof and that we didn’t mind waiting. It felt as if when he realized we weren’t going to give in he then decided to go up and take another look. Magically there was a spot for 4. We were un-ceremoniously seated.
To my great frustration there were several open tables that seated 4 and that never were occupied, we spent $200. On the Bill, honestly that was very upsetting to me to give that much business to an establishment that treats their guests in this manner. For the record we are over 50, very well groomed and stylish and of means. Very disappointing

Azucar is a hidden little paradise! The ambience is delightful and the wait staff are very attentive and friendly. The menu has limited offerings but everything we had was delicious. The Brussels sprouts salad is delicious with a light citrus dressing, elevated by fresh pomegranate seeds. And if you choose to imbibe the Blood Orange Margarita and the Rooftop Lemonade are refreshing and delicious. We will return again, hopefully often.

Friendly, pretty location. Small entree menu but well executed. Service staff almost overly friendly. Tuna bruschetta was fresh and well flavored. Tenderloin and Salmon entrees were delicious. Had the dessert flan on a prior visit and it is very good! Only real disappointment was the glass by the wine selection and service (a very small selection and both of our reds were served very warm) - probably better to get a bottle and request that it be chilled.

Ezekiel and Jose provided excellent customer service for us, and we were able to get our favorite table thanks to Jose. The food was THE BEST, as usual, as were the cocktails. We absolutely love this place and all the people who work there.
