We had a great time! We were sat outside in a private cabana, which was a bit hot but there was a fan. Our servers were amazing-constantly filling up our water glasses. The food was delicious. I will come back as soon as we’re in town again.

Will never ever get tired of going back. Impeccable service, best food and lemon drop
Their charcuterie board with cheese is all worth it, love their lamb chops, seared tuna, steak in skillet and salmon
Their chocolate lava cake is to die for

Beautiful outdoor patio and ambiance with musician. Servers were good but the food was okay. It’s an old school menu that we did not enjoy. The menu, music and ambience took me back in time to the 80’s.

Lavender Bistro was just wonderful. The food was delicious and the live music was a nice touch. It was very busy so we waited a bit for our waitress but she was very nice. The scallops were delicious, sea bass just melted in your mouth and the lobster ravioli was yummy too. Overall, wonderful dinner. Will definitely go back.

We been here several times and always better than the last. Price point is a bit high but falls in place with quality of food, drinks, service and location. Always recommend this place to our out of town guests or friends.

We were truly disappointed with the food. For the price it was not worth it. Bland and more like conference food than fine dining which is how it was priced. I knew after the appetizer we should have left. Sorry to have spent the money. Service was good. But even with the beautiful atmosphere I would not recommend.

What a beautiful place. The food was fantastic. Portions are actually quite large. Mixed drinks are perfect and they have a good wine list. The service here was the best we have experienced in the Palm Springs area. Romantic, beautiful with excellent food. It is a bit pricey so may want to save for a special occasion. I did not feel it was overpriced! the food and service were worth it!
