I have loved this restaurant ever since they opened and generally go about once a month. I always order the four course menu and have always been very happy with it. This past Saturday night I went with a friend and ordered the four course menu with the tuna poke, Beef tenderloin and crème brûlée. I started off with a cocktail I had never had called “ some like it hot”. I like spice and the salt on the rim of the glass was habanero flavor. It tasted great. The tuna poke was different than the last time I had it but it also tasted great. We finished dinner around 10 PM and I went to bed about 11:30 PM. I woke up a couple hours later and I was all congested, hot, and extremely thirsty. Drank a big glass of water, fell asleep but woke up about an hour later feeling the same. I am gluten intolerant and have a pretty severe reaction to MSG. This is exactly what it felt like. I was very disappointed since I don’t expect a high-quality restaurant like this to be using MSG. I know many flavored salts and seasonings contain MSG. I would be very hesitant to go back to this restaurant without knowing for sure that they don’t use MSG since it is no fun to spend that much money on a meal and then feel the way I did that night.

Firstly, I am sorry that you did not feel well the other evening. I am also sorry that you did not contact me to ask the question, rather than give us a 2 star review. We do not use MSG in anything here at EIGHT4NINE. You mentioned that certain seasoning and salts have MSG and I don't believe we have any seasonings that we purchase have any MSG. Again, I am sorry that you were ill.

They were out of many of things we wanted to order on a Saturday night, when we'd expect them to be prepared. The food was generally good, but a few plates were under seasoned.

Beautifuul spacious restaurant that was once an art gallery. Large open concept with several different rooms. Fantastic bar area with both high tops and low tops. Service is friendly and professional. These guys really get everything right. Menu has a wide variety of tasty and creative choices. Prices are very reasonable considering the high quality of the establishment. I’ll be back!

Slow and forgetful server. Seated us next to a service station . Turkey dinners were good. The filet was dry , chewy and undercooked. Very disappointed.

This was our second time to Eight4Nine, and we love it. Both times we have eaten in the lounge, had appetizers, and drinks. The quality of everything was excellent. Our server, Miguel, was so pleasant and attentive (without being the least bit overbearing). The next time we are in Palm Springs we will definitely be having dinner and drinks at Eight4Nine.

Cute place, but the food was pretty underwhelming. The amuse bouche was a celebration cracker! Seems like just another Palm Springs tourist trap, though the staff were very good.

I love Eight4Nine! This was my fourth visit, and second for a special occasion. The food was spectacular. But the service was frustratingly erratic.

The trend of one person being designated the waiter and taking the order, while others are sent by the kitchen to deliver courses can be efficient but there is one intrinsic problem. It's quite possible that no one takes accountability for the overall experience.

Our waiter (who shall go unnamed) was highly attentive initially--taking drink orders, answering questions about the menu etc. Then he was invisible for most of the meal. Our drinks were empty for ten minutes while we awaited dinner. All three of us wanted a glass of wine to accompany the food. I finally got up and went into the bar, inquiring if anyone had seen our waiter. Tommy (who I assume was the manager) entered our dining room and offered to help. He was fantastic and quickly took care of us, but in the interim, the main courses had arrived and we were about 1/3 of the way through dinner.

Our waiter showed up once at dessert time and asked how everything had been. Then he disappeared again. About twenty minutes after dessert was finished, I again went into the bar hoping to spot our waiter and request a check. Once again Tommy bailed him out and the check arrived quickly.

I like 2-3 hour meals, especially when celebrations are in order, point being that I'm not an impatient diner. I do, however, have high standards for service. After all we are paying for it!

I have no idea if our waiter was responsible for all the above or if he was assigned (unfairly) elsewhere in remote locations of the restaurant. On the two occasions I searched for him, he was not in the bar, main dining room or our room. Anyway it's an issue for the restaurant to address.

Food was good. The waiter should not pour tea over the table or over food. Some of the ice spilled into the food which is not good. Grab the glass and pour it into the glass away from the food. Other than that, it was great.

849 has a beautiful cool decor and ambience. We ate at one of the bar tables in the bar area. There was a lot of energy but the noise level was not annoyingly deafening. The food & drinks were delicious. The service was excellent. Miguel and the bus boys were very attentive. Will
