Bar seating and ledge-leaning is the rule of thumb -- think Paris tabac or the zinc -- the heat of local life, crowded with regulars at the counter waiting for their vin rouge. Here you'll find our Cave à Manger, an eclectic curation of wines by the glass offered with a menu of small plated savory delicacies created for this tasting smorgasbord. More than an amuse-bouche, less than a serving. Range, variety, exploration and discovery are the point.
Outstanding from start to finish. It was my second time and I was over the moon.
Wonderful wines, excellent service, delicious food.
We always enjoy our experience at counter reformation, and this was nothing short of extraordinary. We love the bartender, she’s so delightful to chat with and her service is excellent. The food is incredible and the atmosphere is always so fun.
Fantastic food. Quail egg dish was a favorite. Another favorite was the beef carpaccio!
Truly amazing experience. The vibes here are immaculate, and the food is fantastic. Small but great wine list. A great secret in the Parker.
Fantastic food. Great service. Charming atmosphere.
Great playlist, fun service, solid menu!
I loved this place. Very reasonable, interesting wines by the glass or half glass. Innovative twists on classic dishes; plates reasonable for one or for sharing.
Wish you were in Atlanta!
Such a great vibe of food, service, music, and atmosphere. All 5 star...small plates of the most creative cuisine, paired with fabulous wines, your choice of 30z. or 5 oz. pours..so fun for tasting different wines.
wonderful vibe, decor and food
Great experience! Beautiful upscale boutique hotel, excellent service, tasty food and excellent wine selection in a speakeasy-feel kinda joint in the middle of the desert. Recommended.
This meal was a religious experience. Every single dish. Amen.
Awesome place! Beautiful space and great service. We will definitely be back!
This is my second time at Counter Reformation and it was as good as I remembered. The menu is different but the food and wine was still great. My only complaint would be that it was busy so it took longer than I would have liked to get our order taken. A couple that came in after us was served before we were.
Very tight quarters small bar area very loud and cramped. Uncomfortable chairs and no social distancing here. Food is great probably better to go early before it gets packed.
Excellent venue. Would have enjoyed it better if the music wasn’t on full blast.
Surprise spot with good food and cool decor. We’ll be back.
One of the best little known places to enjoy a glass of wine in Palm Springs.
Counter Reformation never disappoints. It had been two years since we’d been here due to the pandemic and it was as good as we remembered. Good food. Good vibe. Such a wonderful addition to the Parker.
Excellent service, food and wine as always. Counter servers a professional and courteous. Bianca is awesome
Fun environment + quiet atmosphere!
Unique and delicious! Cool vibe and awesome menu.
Great selection, meals, and service
Everything was so delish!!! Def recommend!
Love this wine bar. Outstanding food, and knowledgeable people responsible for the wine selection. Wonderful and fun. Very good COVID-19 protective measures.
Our anniversary was not mentioned even though it was on the reservation.Everything else was very enjoyable
Great food and great location. We will be going again.
Food was disappointing but service was very good.
2 words. Lights Out! What an experience ... communal style, cool vibe, and above all else, exceptional eats. We'll definitely be back.
My son who is 44 loved it. It was perfect for his age group. He loved the food but I would say we ordered pretty much everything on the menu and Some things were really good and other were just okay. The duck dish was not good and the oysters were fantastic. Everything else was pretty good.
The vibe and people watching was really fun. It’s worth going once for the experience.
We had drinks and cheese platter in the lobby. Cheese was only okay because they were out of all soft cheeses and drinks were a little pricey, about $19 ea.
Wow. Wow. Wow. What an experience. Everything i ate and drank was so delicious. Small and initiate setting and the service was great. I will be back!!
Amazing spot! Great food, wine, and vibe!
Great food. Speakeasy vibe.
Low ceilings and cramp quarters give this small little dark bar (bar & wine only) a claustrophobic feel. The menu and food itself was unappealing and unappetizing. Overall... overpriced and pretentious.

Did not feel welcome, had a drink and a bite then wanted to just walk in the garden and were told that was not allowed. A bit pricey but it was very cute on the inside.
We are sorry to see that your experience was not great. However, our estate and garden are exclusively for the registered hotel guest Yagmur Gursoy Hotel Manager
Exceptional service by fantastic server. Food excellent and good wine choices.
Only complaint is the property’s charge of 25 dollars for parking, but only $12 if
ticket stamped. Find this to be extremely out of line with other dining establishments
in Palm Springs.
Great wine selection, and the food was outstanding!!!
Always love coming to Counter Reformation!! Don’t be afraid to try something new…the combinations of food they put together is a masterpiece! The music is loud and the vibe is fun! Great wines too!! Can’t wait to visit again! Must make a reservation if you want a seat!
There are perhaps 20 bar seats at the attractive bar and you are facing the two bartenders who are masked. The food menu and wine selections were excellent. We had 4 items for the two of us, including the scallops and the cheeseboard. The music is a bit loud for the small space but otherwise it is a lovely place to go for done excellent wind from around the world and done delicious small bites. The bread is amazing for $10. This was our second visit and we definitely go back in a few months.
