Azucar at La Serena Villas
Great little restaurant with excellent food and good service. Great little bar upstairs with dreamy bartender Josh
Hidden gem in Palm Springs. Josh the bartender is always great and makes some amazing drinks. Food is great and set in a beautiful location.
The food was very good and innovative. The service lacked a certain amount of professionalism but the waiter was very attentive and pleasant. I ordered a fresh mint infusion after the meal and it was brought to me with mint leaves floating in a cup of lukewarm water. Surely they must have teapots.
Service was awesome. The outdoor seating was gorgeous. The food was just okay. Something was missing from the flavors. Not enough seasoning, too much citrus. I was a little disappointed. We had the swordfish, shaved Brussels sprouts salad and chips and guac. Even the guac was underwhelming. But the place was a great spot for cocktails on the roof.
Some of the best food we’ve had in PS. Highly recommended.
Great Restaurant. Very casual and comfortable. Great Food and Beverages
Extraordinary atmosphere, great service and a wonderful menu. It’s on my list of favs
Ordered the Beet Salad, Jumbo Scallops, & Dungeness Crab Stuffed Poblanos. Presentation of the food and overall menu concepts were really impressive. The execution of the food however was just not there. Beet Salad was delicious, but slightly undercooked. The “Jumbo” scallops & corn dish came out cold and the scallops were more 10/20 size versus U10 jumbo sized. Dungeness stuffed pepper was filled with a healthy portion but the beans were tragically undercooked and the pepper skin was brunt pretty badly & left on.
Food wonderful as always. However, it was too noisy due to a private party, which the restaurant apologized for.
Great space, food and staff! Highly recommend a visit.
Dear Niko, Thank you for the glowing review. We also love seeing you as well! The staff at Azúcar.
We love staying at the Las Serena Villa because we love the hotel, but also because we love the Azucar Restaurant. The food and atmosphere always beat my expectations.
Dear Rebecca, Thank you so much for the glowing review. We look forward to meeting and exceeding those high expectations every time! The staff at Azucar
We had a wonderful meal. The service was excellent while not being overly intrusive. The menu was exceptional with fascinating flavor combinations. This is a real foodie destination. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in Palm Springs.
Dear J, thank you for the wonderful review. We look forward to having you return. The staff at Azúcar
Very very beautiful interior design. Service was excellent with a very friendly waiter. Drinks were delicious and the stuffed Dungeness crab plobano was yummy!
Dear Alyssa, Thank you for the review. We look forward to your return. The Staff at Azucar
Always enjoy my dining experience at Azucar, great ambiance, design of the space and the food. House specialty drinks are innovative. The watermelon salad, cauliflower risotto and the green salad with quinoa & chopped dates are favorites to start. Main course options are wonderfully good. The quaint setting overlooking the pool and the optional roof top deck seating make this a fun destination
Dear Jeffrey, Thank you for the review. We look forward to your return and hope that we can make it a five star review! The Staff at Azúcar.
Palm Springs- needs more umbrellas, small table seating...accommodate pets outside or poolside options?
Dear Shane, We are small restaurant and try as desperately as we like, we can't accommodate everyone. However, we do have poolside table dining. Unfortunately, the loungers are meant only for the hotel guests. Yes, we can accommodate pets but only at poolside dining tables. (Health and fire regulations.) We ask that you make notes in your reservations. Kindest regards, The Staff at Azúcar.
It was my first time at Azucar. I don't know why it took me so long to have lunch there. Outstanding food and service. What a great setting by the pool. I'm looking forward to going back for dinner.
Dear PSGuy, We look forward to having you! Ask for a local loyalty card from your server! Kindest regards -- The Staff at Azúcar.
Service was so poor, took awhile to get our drinks that I ended up walking to the bar and picking up our drinks myself. Food was way overpriced for the quality.
Dear Eden, We deeply apologize for the experience you had. As you can see, we receive mostly 4 - 5 star ratings. When these opportunities arise, we want our patrons to speak up so we can take care and manage your time with us. We also have a restaurant manager who would be more than happy to have assisted you. Please contact us directly and we would like to extend a gift card for dinner. Ask for our marketing director. The Staff at Azúcar.
Food and service were ok but the place is beautiful.
Pool side small plates. Very tasty. Wish the had more vegan offering and bread for table. We met the owner Lars. He was extremely hospitable. We shared our common love for our children. He gave us a great overview of the Palm Springs scene. What a great experience. We will return most likely to stay at one of his properties.
Loved this restaurant. Perfection really. The service was amazing and the view of the pool and palm trees will be with me forever.
Dear Dajonae, Thank you for the lovely compliments. We look forward to having you back in the future. The Staff at Azucar
This is one of my favorite spots for dinner and drinks, love the cauliflower risotto!
Such a cute esthetic! Not only is this place such a photo op. But the staff was so nice and welcoming!
I ordered the fish tacos & spicy melon drink.
Our waiter was the best I am so bummed I forgot his name. Blonde male about 45 years old. He made the night the best. Although my wife got quezy from a little too much wine and we had to leave early :(
Music was just the right volume as well. Loved everything we ordered.
The loveliest spot in Palm Springs!!
Very cute space, service good, drinks good. My swordfish was so dry, I thought I would choke while swallowing. For $32 I expect a little bit more.
The food And atmosphere was amazing! Definitely recommend lunch over dinner!
To celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary we chose Azucar. Everything was Outstanding. It’s a Hidden Gem. Ambiance, Reception, Service, Food, and Staff were Flawless. Highly recommended. We will return!!!
So glad there was a cancellation. We were able to make reservations for 7p. The atmosphere is intimate, the décor eclectic and beautiful. We had dinner on the rooftop with a fireplace nearby. Service was prompt and the wait staff attentive. Dinner was delicious! I would definitely recommend Azucar again and again and again!
The ambiance was incredible, very fun and far from tacky. the roof top was breathtaking and the cocktails are ALL yummy.
The best reason to go to Azucar is definitely the ambiance -- the rooftop is romantic, if a little crowded. The food was very good. My husband and I split the shaved Brussels sprouts salad as a starter, which was delicious and perfectly sized for the two of us as a starter. His scallops were very good, as was my Jidori chicken -- both tender and flavorful. If there was a fault to find it was that the accompaniments to the entree were difficult to identify -- a bed of limp and relatively flavorless hash? vegetables? puree? that we think was supposed to include both hominy and polenta but aren't really sure. For dessert we sampled two exquisite ice creams, one a Maker's Mark flavored vanilla and the other a rosewater hibiscus that was great. Their signature Rooftop Lemonade was very good, refreshing and tart with a nice alcoholic balance. The service was very good except for having to wait an exceptionally long time for our entrees to arrive (the people next to us, who arrived at the same time, had completed their dinners and desserts before our entrees were delivered), but the staff were attentive and apologetic for the kitchen's delay (though no explanation was offered). All in all, it's a great place to go for a cozy, pleasant, intimate dinner and drinks kind of night out, relaxed and informal or dressed up -- all fit just fine.
Beautiful setting, great food and drinks. The blood orange margarita is awesome. The crab and chorizo stuffed poblano is amazing!
On a trip without the kids, we loved the adults only vibe. So relaxing and what a cool vibe. The food was very good, I especially loved the ahi crostini and the salmon.
Just okay. Not terrible , but nothing special either.
Never disappointed when we go here. The food is consistently great, along with the service and ambiance. We like to consider it our little secret place being it is not on main road.
What a gem this place is! The ambiance is great, sitting poolside and the decor is beautiful! I had the cauliflower tacos and my husband had the fish. The guacamole was delicious too! Then we had the brownie, ice cream and toffee bits for dessert on the rooftop! Such a fun dining experience!
Such a cute place. I love the decor and the vibe. It was so relaxing and the food was delicious. We can’t wait to go back.
Beautiful decor and amazing food. Fresh ingredients and innovative recipes
Absolutely charming place. Went for lunch and got seated on the roof top. Perfect place to view the Mountains and enjoy the sunshine!
Wonderful restaurant with beautiful views. Absolutely amazing food, would highly recommend!
