Service was very slow, soup was not hot and sent back 3 times, entree and sides were Luke warm, missing root vegetables which then came barely warm. Would never eat there again. Too many good restaurants to choose from. Was 88th Birthday celebration for my mom and the evening was overshadowed by all the complaints

My fiancé and I LOVED Citrus and Palm. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambiance was romantic.

I have severe Celiac Disease which I indicated when making the dinner reservation. The chef and servers at Citrus and Palm were attentive to my dietary restrictions and made sure I had a wonderful and safe meal.

Thank you Citrus and Palm for a memorable experience.

Superb service combined with the beautiful setting and great mountain views made for a wonderful brunch! We LOVE the prime rib and eggs plate, and the spicy salsa alongside can't be beat.

We waited for someone to greet us at the door....then we were escorted to a table which we did not want to sit at and requested another, which we were given (it was not busy at all).
We had made reservations and let the, know it was my birthday. At first we were ignored and waited to be waited on, but then the waiter showed up and took our order.
We ordered and the food came and it was well prepared, though very small portions.
I had opted to have breakfast here as I like the menu and the fresh foods.
A while later the Manager came over and wished me a Happy Birthday, then the waiter brought out a chocolate cake, which was kind BUT I could not have any due to the sugar content.
I was not aware that the room had an ambiance and decor of a small cafe which I did not care for and it was very cold outside and inside; every time a waiter opened up a door to the outside, it got even colder.
Again, I will say I do appreciate your menu with it's different fresh options...but probably would not come back.

We went for Thanksgiving dinner. We know it’s difficult to serve a buffet, but we’re disappointed that so many food choices were either cold or empty so much of the time. They also served at bare wooden tables without tsbkeclo, despite the holiday (and holiday prices). It was fine, but nothing special.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving Dinner. Was so afraid it was going to be a huge buffet in the large banquet room but it was spread out between the bar and the dining room and felt much more “cozy”.
The food and service was excellent. It’s my favorite place to go.

Have eaten at the restaurant several times for lunch and enjoyed it. We went for their Thanksgiving buffet and it was disappointing. Not terrible, but nothing special.

Poorly laid out and seating was not comfortable. Colder indoors (it was held in the lobby) than it should have been for a resort event. The short ribs were fabulous, but the turkey (and many of the sides) were not the quality that we hoped for. In the future, we'll stick to lunch and bypass the special events at the Miramonte.

Everything was great, except for the menu. It didn’t offer many choices and was too limited for our liking. It didn’t have a wide variety. And I don’t think I ever got my opentable points. There was no front desk to check into, and the lady who helped me didn’t really know what she was doing. I never got a point confirmation from opentable.

MY DAUGHTER AND I THOROUGHLY ENJOYED OUR RESPECTIVE DINNERS.
THE FILET MIGNON AND SKIRT STEAK WERE VERY GOOD.
EDGAR, OUR WAITER, WAS PERSONABLE, EFFICIENT AND HELPFUL
WHEN IT CAME TO VEGETABLE (ROASTED CAULIFLOWER) AND DESSERT CHOICES
(VANILLA CAKE). IT WAS LOVELY DINING ON THE PATIO RATHER THAN INDOORS.

The first impression was wonderful as I had not seen the restaurant since it had been remodeled. It is now open and very inviting. The 3 choices of lunch were all appealing and our salmon dish was very good although the salmon was overcooked. The lemon mustard salad dressing made up for it! Then the waiters changed or took a break and we had to wait and wait for our dessert and finally had to reorder it. Well we received a very dry pound cake drenched in rum with a small scoop of coffee gelato and a half strawberry and one blackberry. But what we ordered was a date semifredo so something obviously got translated incorrectly. By this time we both had to return to work so we just paid our bill and left. Would not hurry to return!

Great onsite restaurant at the Miramonte. We were able to sit on the patio with our dog too. Major plus for dog lovers! Food and rinks were good as well. It was pretty mellow for a Friday night, I imagine that’s because a lot of travelers were still arriving for the weekend. All in all it was good!

I just love the ambiance at this restaurant. It is so beautiful and so comfortable...especially on the benches with the lovely cushions. The service is wonderful!! It must be a great place to work as everyone seems happy to be working there! Last, but not least, is the food. I’ve ordered almost everything on the menu at one time or another and have loved it all. If you are looking for that elegant, serene place with great food and service....this is it!!!

Great patio setting—tasty sandwiches// Edgar was a great sever, EXCEPT, either server or management failed to acknowledge a milestone Birthday—which had been noted on the OPEN TABLE reservation request—-The main reason we use OT, is to facilitate communication with the restaurant. J

Most horrible expense for holiday dinner.
Everything that could go wrong with the dinner was wrong .
Had reservation months ahead of time. When we came they said there is not table for us. Restaurant scrambled to get the tables.
The worst part I'd thr attitude of the staff. Restaurant manager and waiters.
We were visually upset that our holiday dinner went wrong. No, I am sorry. No, let me compensate you and offer you something. NOTHING .
We ate dinner. I have called ahead of time and agreed with manager that there will be 2 special options for people who don't eat from prefx menue. When we can over the restaurant told me they dont have anything for us. After calling manager they were able to find the special order.
After all that trouble the food was barely edible. They delved us a dish that had eggs and it was still raw.
Attitude and food quality is so bad.
I cannot belive my xmas dinner was ruined like that.

The Christmas Eve dinner was mediocre, the food was cold l and the service was terrible. We have been previously for a lovely Easter dinner and after suffering through our recent experience (Christmas Eve dinner) I don’t think it’s the same restaurant. It was absolutely terrible.

Food was overpriced and generally nothing special. The green bean appetizer was the highlight of the meal. Overall, I find most things in the Indian Wells/Palm Springs area way over priced.

The food was good, however there weren’t labels on everything to know what the food was. Staff weren’t properly monitoring the food table, as I had to ask for silverware that weren’t on the serving table. Service was lacking; when we were seated our server did not come to us for 10 minutes. That was only after a bus boy politely asked us if we would like some water...he then found a server for us, who finally took our order but rarely checked on us after that.

My husband & I were very disappointed when we arrived at Citrus & Palm to celebrate my birthday. We made a reservation the day before through Open Table & received a confirmation. When we arrived the restaurant was closed. The man who greeted us knew we had a reservation but did not try to contact us to let us know they were closed. He offered to feed us but the last thing we wanted was to dine in an empty restaurant! We feel someone should have notified us of the situation.
