Receptionist isn’t the smartest of the bunch.

I called to confirm the reservation and she asked for the reservation number. Then she said oh no I meant reservation name.

So when we arrived same person said she couldn’t understand me through the plexiglass so I pulled my mask down to say my name. Then she said sir please put your mask on.

Finally we order our drinks and the poor waiter’s hands are shaking serving the cocktails. Next thing we know we have a new waiter and the first one went home.

Completely understand the waiter issue during this difficult time but that receptionist has got to go.

We were leaving Palm Springs the next day. It was the end of our seven day trip to Joshua Tree NP. It was our last dinner out before quarantine restrictions. Thanks 849!

My new favorite for special occasions! I wanted a nice, romantic place with good food and excellent customer service. I got it all! Everything was upscale with the exception of the price (appetizers, drinks, dinner, desert = $200). Can't wait to be able to visit again.

We truly enjoyed our dinner at Eight4Nine. The Chilean seabass was perfectly prepared. When told that we wanted to share an appetizer, Luis, our very professional waiter, guided us to the generously proportioned pear and blue cheese salad. His suggestion of the deconstructed s’mores dessert with house made marshmallows and fresh berries was both fun and delicious.

The beef tenderloin was one of the best I’ve had anywhere in the valley. Bus staff was amazing. Our server was surprisingly absent. Cocktails were tasty and generous. A bachelorette party was especially loud and obnoxious, making for challenging conversation with table mate.

Our first visit to this beautiful restaurant. We were made to feel welcome and the service was both friendly and very efficient. We liked the creative menu which encouraged us to try new dishes and everything we ate was fabulous! Despite not living very nearby, we will be back soon!

There may be many reasons to go to 849 but food is not one of them. It amazes me how bad the food is at this place. Someone has obviously spent time and money making the restaurant look modern/different/special, its a pity some of that attention to detail didn't rub off on the kitchen staff. This is my third visit, our friends choice not ours. The service was great, restaurant was about 60% full. Drinks were excellent. But the food.... Appetizers we had Chowder and Pear Salad. The soup was OK, the pear salad was a pile of leaves with some poached pears which tasted of cinnamon rather than pears. A pile of nondescript leaves and a single piece of blue cheese which appeared as if it had recently graduated from being a crumb. Entrees - Fried chicken - overcooked, Sea Bass - OK and the worst Beef Stroganoff I have ever tasted consisting of a huge pile of bland noodles, a watery cream sauce, a few chewy pieces of beef hidden within the mass of noodles - I have had better out of a packet. Now if the entrees were priced at $15 I could understand the lack of finesse, but this place is charging premium prices for buffet quality food.

So many restaurants are given 4 or 5 stars by patrons and only deserve 3. Happy to report that this one deserves the stars. Great selection of food with some innovative ideas.Decent wine list. Professional service. Fair pricing. Comfortable seating, white linen, nice ambience. Very vibrant and noisy bar area so be sure to ask for a table in one of the quiet areas. The bar area does not take reservations but has a great menu with $9 entrees. Expect to spend about $60 each for dinner with wine

It was good the first time we went there, but the last two times it was not. I had the lobster eggs benedict. the eggs were too runny, the lobster was tough and over-cooked and the hollandaise sauce tasted off. Another in our party had the cuban sandwich and it was very dry, she didn't eat much of it. For the price, it was not a good quality lunch.
Pretty much done with them.

I love 849, however on this day everything seemed off. The service was very very slow. After finally getting our order in, the omelette ordered was not what was delivered. So everyone was finished eating before my meal finally arrived. Had to ask 3 times for coffee refills. Had to ask for champagne refills about the same. There was just no service. I will continue to go because I do like 849. I have to assume it was just a bad day.

We were put in a room that had two large “events” - one a table if 22, the second, a table of 12. I was worried. No need. The service was timely, personable, greet teamwork from service team. Food excellent. Noise not at all what I had feared when we walked in. The room was large enough so there was space and autistics were great.

We have been to this restaurant several times. It continues to deliver. The service was excellent. Maybe even too speedy. The food was great. The crab and corn chowder was fantastic. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. We both had the four course dinner for $48/each. This is a good deal for a quality restaurant.

If the service had been good, my rating would have been a lot higher. We were not in that much of a hurry, but how long should it take to get a glass of wine and a cocktail ordered directly from the menu? Ended up with my salad before my cocktail, and by the time we received the rest of our meal, we felt rushed to finish because by then we needed to get somewhere else. The food was good. Wish we could have enjoyed it more.

while the food is good, the noise level inside is challenging for conversation. Hostess told us we had an outside table, but was given one inside. Too bad.
