Our first time to Azucar was such a wonderful experience. the setting is precious with kind of an old school Palm Springs feel mixed with a Moroccan influence and a bit of hipster. You can sit poolside or balcony which is where we were and it was perfect. It’s intimate and has a great vibe. The food and drink were outstanding but the service even surpassed that. There was a bit of a glitch in the kitchen but the staff quickly remedied it and never feel like it was our fault. We cannot wait to return and bring every guest that comes to stay with us.
Azucar is a beautiful restaurant! The rooftop is cozy and romantic! We loved everything about it!
The customer service needs improvement. We waited to be serve too long, more than 15 mins.
Loved the food and the service. Definitely coming back on my next stay
Food was great, service was wonderful and rooftop was perfect!!
Loved it such a nice chilled place.. food was excellent
Absolutely love this restaurant. The ambiance of the rooftop lounge is magical. The meals are always exquisite, and our server “Mike” was fantastic.
We had a lovely meal on the roof terrace, very comfortable with the heaters on a breezy evening.
The cocktails were fabulous : the rosarita was a sweet delicious delight, and the margarita was the BEST we’ve ever had, wow! The hummus starter was generous and tasty, the crab stuffed pepper was richly delicious and the scallops were perfectly cooked.
Lastly the service from ALL the staff was excellent: helpful, courteous and thoughtful. We’ll be back!
Friendly, professional service in a charming outdoor environment (we ate up on the roof terrace near the fireplace). The dishes and drinks we ordered were very satisfying and nicely presented. We will be back!
Great lunch. Delicious fish tacos! Chic setting
The food was delicious and the servers were very attentive. The roof top dining was a great way to spend an evening. We'll definitely be going back.
I recommend starting with a Grapefruit Sparkle. For dinner, we shared a pasta and crab stuffed poblano pepper. They were amazing! The service was terrific and friendly. The location and decor is beautiful. Can’t wait to go back!
Everything was amazing. Drinks, entree, dessert were all so good. Never disappoints.
The food was not as good as expected. Especially for the price. The drinks were great, service great.
Highly recommend Azucar! Food and service were amazing … ambience was outstanding for a date night. We will be back!
We live in Palm Springs and this is one of our favorite restaurants. Great food, service, and atmosphere.
We ate here a week ago and really enjoyed our meal, the ambience and wait staff...so much so, we took our friends this week. Again, it was wonderful and we even had the excitement of a small earthquake. We look forward to many more meals here.
From the moment we arrived every thing was perfect.
The service , The food. ( surf and Turf)
The best ! Thank you for making it epic
Excellent food in interesting surroundings. Sabrina's service was exceptional.
Stunning outdoor dining on the rooftop with outstanding food.
Slightly slow service but great cocktails and food.
Very efficient and friendly wait staff. Laura hostess especially Food was very good and the patio area good looking and comfortable. Thanks to all for a very good dining experience
Great ambience and delicious food! We ate outdoors on the upstairs terrace, and they brought over two space heaters that kept us very toasty.
We’ve been to Azucar before- and we continue to come back because of the food and service- and drinks! Love it there so intimate and relaxing. But you do need churros on the dessert menu… ;)) pretty please
They have very nice cocktails at @$14-16. My Mezcal Margarita ( not on the menu) was almost as good as they get. The poke appetizer was excellent and it is large enough for two people to share. The crab stuffed poblano was very good and surprisingly enough food to fill most people. The scallops were perfectly cooked and a larger portion than you would get at many restaurants. In short, the food was very good, service was very good and the atmosphere was very pretty. We will go back and bring friends.
We had such an amazing dinner! Wonderful food and atmosphere
Fresh, simple, and delicious. Looking forward to going back soon.
Great drinks and service
The ambiance was quite appealing, roof-top outdoor, spaced seating with warming fireplace and heaters. Very much appreciated for January and with COVID risks.
The menu featured a variety of appetizing choices. The simple mixed-greens salad surprised us with delicious honey crisp apple chunks and a tasty lemony vinaigrette dressing that elevated this traditional appetizer. Our main menu selections received mixed reviews; the presentation of the salmon was uninspired and the risotto was mushy. The jumbo scallops were grilled to perfection, moist and flavorful. Disappointing service...the server would repeatedly failed to pick up completed dishes when new ones were brought to our (small) two-top.
Amazing food and amazing atmosphere! Would highly recommend
The cocktails are excellent, particularly the blood-orange margarita. Staff is excellent. Food is delicious. Charming Santa-Barbara-style architecture. Plan for a long pleasant meal between the bar and the pool.
A little pricier than we remembered but a good overall food experience.
Spent New Years at the Villas and walked down for Azucar New Year’s Eve full course meal. Michael was my waiter and he was excellent. Will come back with more of my nurse friends for another getaway soon and Azúcar is on the list. Thanks!
Great ambiance, delicious food and drinks, lovely atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
Went for lunch. Left right after the appetizer. Didn't want to order mains because the restaurant was really dirty and unkempt. It definitely wasn't cleaned from the dinner service the night before.
We celebrated our 15th year anniversary 💞
Such an adorable place to eat & drink. Amazing cocktails + incredible food!
We have dined for dinner at Azucar several times since it opened; but because of the pandemic, this was our first time in two years. It was also Christmas night. We found that Azucar is still the pleasant, service oriented, elevated food experience it has always been.
For our dinner we had the house salad and the date salad. The plating was a little rough but the flavors were all there and delicious. For mains we had the vegetarian stuffed poblano pepper and the king salmon. Both mains were very good. The salmon was really cooked perfectly. We had the flan with dulce de leche for dessert. Not sure the drizzle of chocolaty syrup qualifies as dulce de lechi but it was still good and the flan was excellent.
Service and atmosphere are important to us and we found both to be what we expect in an expensive restaurant. Attention to detail here, without being stuffy or losing the relaxed Mediterranean vibe, is achieved. Highly recommended.
Christmas Eve Dinner
Gilbert our server was amazing; as was the entire staff! Literally every staff member we encountered was an amazing human, making us feel welcome and APPRECIATED.
Food was as good as the service.
We’ve told all of our Palm Springs friends they have to visit.
