Contemporary French / American
Dark, discreet, and decadent. Over-the-top decor and under-the-tank mischief. A watering hole befitting dreamy aesthetes, wandering flaneurs, and swaggering dandies. The high-born agreeably mix with lowbrow, the bon vivants nurse the lugubrious and everyone is wilkommen. A guys guy sort of place with a menu to match -- epicurean, savory favorites with Chefs personal inspirations. A wine list not meant for the faint of heart, a bar that happily provides your martini in lieu of an entree and desserts that extend the pleasure principle. DRESS CODE Dressy casual, casual chic, or black-tie. What ever your choice of attire may be, your only requirement is that you come dressed to impress. But boys, no flip flops, shorts or tank tops OR we will seat you in Siberia.

We originally made a mistake on our reservation and booked for a day past the day we intended. Without worries the maitre'd easily adjusted so we could dine immediately. Our server Ray was attentive and knowledgeable and we couldn't have asked for better value for how much food we got! I got the lobster and my husband got the prime New York, scrumptious! We were sitting next to a group of ladies in a big booth who seemed to constantly feel the need to be rude and disrespectful to our server ( I suppose they were in his section.) Apparently it was a bachelorette party but these girls were just that, GIRLS. It got to a point to where they were cussing at staff and yelling at them for blankets... BLANKETS?? REALLY? They almost ruined our experience but the manager stepped in at just the right time and was able to take care of the situation. Loved the art and decor, will definitely be coming back 5 stars all around!

My wife and I came out to Mister Parker’s for a date night and it was amazing as the first time we were there. The service was exceptional, the food was delicious and the ambiance was great! We love going there when we’re in Pam Springs for the weekend

This is supposedly a fine dining restaurant but nothing about it was fine. The disco music played at an ear wrenching volume prevented us from hearing the mousy waiter speak or have a decent conversation with our guests. When asked to turn it down, we were completely ignored. The portions were pathetic and food was form over substance. The prices were laughable for the quality of food. The menu has been changed to a prefix only and it’s very limited. MP is trying to be something their not and management should definitely go back to the qualities of a real fine dining restaurant. We will not be returning again. There are too many other delicious choices in Palm Springs.

We had a 815 pm reservation when checking in with the restaurant manager he asked if we could wait for 15’ we said no problem and had a glass of champagne at the bar.
We came back 20’ later and had to wait for 30’ seeing people with resa at 830 and 845 seated before us.
When asked why the restaurant manager told us it was his mistake.
We finally get a table,to apologize for the delay the manager asks if we would like some wine, we said yes and thank you.
A waiter brought us then 2 glasses of pink bubbly.
A few minutes later the manager was back with a bottle of Bordeaux and 2 glasses. As he tried to set my wife ‘s glass with a fancy move he dropped this glass that shattered my wife’s champagne glass and spread broken glass and champagne all over her, the brand new silk blouse she got for her birthday,the table and the couch.
After apologizing again and cleaning up the table he left and a waiter ( great) took care of us. We were brought some free amuse bouche and starters.
The whole dinner went well and we soon were laughing at the adventure... till the check came and we w ere charge for a 263$ bottle of Bordeaux.
I called the waiter and explained there was no way I would pay 263$ for a present made by the manager after the 45’ wait and spraying my wife with broken glass and champagne.

The waiter came back with a proper check (without the 263$ wine).

We will come back as we like this place but the manager needs to go back to managing classes.

We went to Mr. Parkers to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The evening started out nicely with a complimentary glass of Italian Champagne. That was the best part of the evening.
The service was unbelievably slow and rather than apologize, our server made excuses. The octopus sausage was so overcooked it was almost inedible. The Ribeye steak was barely warm which led us to believe that our dinners had been sitting in the kitchen for a while. The Pistachio tartlet was very bland. In all it was a hugely disappointing experience. We will not return to Mr. Parker’s again.

From the moment we stepped into the hotel the stag at the Parker we very accommodating. It is pretty apparent the team is well trained in providing a seamless guest experience. The food was very good and the wine list had great selections though limited. I would recommend for a special occasion..

We loved everything about Mister Parker’s: the decor is Fabulous and the food is fantastic. Although the service we received was friendly and Very accommodating, the timing was a little rough. There was a very long break in between courses-we attributed this to the fact that they got backed up on seating their reservations possibly because of parties lingering a little too long. Overall, Mister Parker’s is a Must-Visit restaurant and We would highly recommend.

Not to eat, the service was terrible! They brought out all our food at different times and it seems like a lot of mistakes happened with the service. This sub par service basically ruined our experience. The meal was not cheap either!

Sadly this place used to be a personal fave and over the past 2 years has gone completely down hill. Lobster was rubbery and pasta cold, and service was non existent. I have no problem paying for a good meal but this just isn’t worth it. The rest of the service at Parker Palm Springs is fantastic but Mister Parker’s has taken a dive :( Do yourself a favour and go to Mr.Lyons or Sandfish Sushi and Whiskey in Palm Springs for an amazing meal and experience

Handsome room, knowledgeable and professional staff guide you through an eclectic, contemporary menu. Fine French wine list, studded with some delightful gems (2007 Chateau d’Yquem!) rounds out the experience. Delightful gifts from the kitchen set the tone, which if followed up by well-crafted courses in a prix fixe format. Don your finest and let Mr. Parker be your host.

Please read all the poor reviews before booking mister parkers. We have been going for years and were surprised that it has gone downhill from service to food quality. Arrived to our 7:30 reservation for 8 people to an empty restaurant. This should have our first clue. We were never made aware of the prix fix menu on a Thursday and were FORCED to order for each person. Some people had food allergies that became an issue. THEY however, reserve the right to charge $60.00 per person for a cancelled reservation within 24 hours.

In summary...Be very cautious about eating at MP.

We’ve gone to Mr. Parker’s for many years. On this occasion we were surprised that the menu is now a Pre-fixe; with no mention of it on open table. We were given a glass of sparkling rose and some nice amuse. The following 3 courses is $79. The wine list is now oddly only French Bordeaux wines. They gave us a glass of sauterne and muffins to go at the end. I’m not sure why the change and we value the ambiance, music and hope it goes well, but they should let people know before they take a reservation.

The restaurant is inside the Parker Hotel. You go through the big orange doors and it’s across from the check-in counter. Of the hotel. You get to see small parks of the resort. Johnathan Adler design everywhere. A fun, flirty, happening place.

The host was great. No wait for us. Gave us the option of two different tables to select from. We were greeted by sparkling rose and small apps at the table. The decor and artwork are fun and interesting. Elegant. Swanky. Lighting low but can still see your table well. Food is delicious. We had starters, seconds, mains, deserts. I ordered the Lobster as my main. It came with some pasta and was very good. My husband had the beef trio and it was also good.

Only negative thing was our main server wasn’t kind or enjoyable. He was an older gentleman. My husband and I drove so he decided just to have the one pink rose and stick to soda water after that. I however order a cocktail right away. I think our main server thought he wasn’t going to make money off of us because after my husband said he would stick to soda water our servers attitude change. After I ordered my first drink he came back to take the cocktail menu away, which wouldn’t have been weird except that he had made a big deal about leaving it for the night when we sat down. That said he could have been having a bad day or we could have not been his brand of human. The assistant servers and busser were lovely though and very enjoyable. We liked them a lot.

We were given little brownies to take home after desert which was a nice unexpected extra.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Late on this review; this was pre-pandemic. Incredible meal as always. I’m a meat-eater and the steak trio was delicious, but also good veg and fish options for my partner. Amazing fresh bread, btw. Service is friendly and impeccable. Very expensive but worth it, and always a good bet in Palm Springs.

The food and drinks are excellent, and the ambiance is great. It’s a nice place to have an intimate conversational dinner with great company. The service is so slow that it borders on neglectful. A waiter spilled a drink on me and didn’t stop to apologize. At the end of the evening, it’s weird that they make you go to the luggage storage room outside the hotel to charge you for parking (after spending a couple hundred dollars per person)
