Pleasant experience, wait staff was fine, lots of precautions eliminated any Covid anxiety, and the food was good. Very happy with the experience.

During the pandemic seating only outdoors.. obviously. The main restaurant with entrance was closed so you'd have to walk through the lobby to get to the outdoor patio. Sinage wasn't very clear and there wasn't anyone directing people where to go. The food was great, small selection. But the server was practically non existent and the food came out before our drinks. I'm not sure of the issue as the patio was fairly sparce. Maybe the server was just having a bad day? It was too hot?? Definitely not worth 60$ for one alcoholic beverage, a kids meal, a sandwich and a salad.

We went to Kings Highway for lunch and all I have to say is GET THE BLT!!! Their COVID precautions were executed well and they did their best to keep us cool even though it was 115°. The only weird thing to note is that The Ace (the hotel the restaurant is located in) is more of a party spot. Where they seat you outside is just next to the pool so there is great people watching if you’re into that.

Reservation at 6:45 when the kitchen and bar close at 7 is a little tricky. Our server was nice about it though.

King’s Highway did an excellent job with taking their food service outside despite the 113° heat. Brian was super friendly and helpful. He even whipped up an off menu cocktail for my husband who couldn’t decide what he wanted.

Food was quick and delicious. Will definitely be back!

My sister and I came for dinner and had such a lovely time that we returned the next day for lunch.

The cucumber salad was absolutely phenomenal. Refreshing and delightful. We also enjoyed the piña coladas🍹.

Our waiter was so kind and partnered with the chef to give us the recipe for the dressing on the salad. Thank you again! See you all someday soon.

Hey Nadine, Thank you for the lovely review. The cucumber salad is one of my favorite dishes as well. I can't get enough of heirloom tomatoes in the summer months! We hope your salad you made at home was equally as delicious. Warmest regards, King's Highway at Ace Hotel and Swim Club Palm Springs, CA

Our Server was very nice and helpful. Not a large selection on the menu but I had the NY strip and it was very good. It had a nice charred outside. The crowd leaned to the younger side. Iwould go back.

Came here with a group of friends to kick off a belated honeymoon with my husband. Food was excellent and we were seated immediately, even though we arrived an hour early. Unfortunately our waitress did not pay much attention to us, but it is understandable as they seemed very busy.

Even though the place was empty on a Saturday night it took us at least 10 minutes to be acknowledged by a host and then seated. It was weird. The food was good.

I’m a former Brunch Restauranteur of 2 top rated OT in the Chicagoland area. I LOVE when a restaurant carries high quality farm-to-table ingredients & it’s a scratch kitchen, so the only 1-star deducted is that they don’t serve natural organic eggs!!! -MMG

Overall, our recent visit was great! The host and our server were outstanding. We enjoyed our food for the most part. Lots of creativity on the part of the chef. The only significant shortfall was that my kabocha squash dish had some underdone, crunchy pieces. And the on-tap margaritas were meh. So, I can't give 5 stars, but a solid 4 stars.

Reconfigured space previously Denny's. Modern sorta diner vibe, simple but cool. Menu a bit limited but food we had was good, side salad Mac and chs and shrimp grits and gelato. Service was quick but it wasn't crowded. Maybe a tad in the pricey side, especially wine but glass. Would come back for breakfast also and for karaoke or trivia nite in bar.

Menu has sophistication in ingredient combinations. All done so well. This place flies under the radar because of location and the fact that it was once a classic coffee shop. But go! It’s so good. Staff is always lovely. I’ll be back.

Delicious meal for six of us. Avocado toast was outstanding; excellent grilled chicken sandwich that was interesting and yummy; kids loved their chicken tenders and wonderful fries; yummy crudite platter. Service was very courteous and pleasant, and timely, considering that the restaurant was quite busy .
