    Our 3 meals were all good! Sea bass, fried chicken sandwich and Marys rotisserie chicken. Their cabbage, kale and apple cole slaw is outstanding! There martini's were small compared to other local restaurants Noise level is off the chart loud.. All hard surfaces and their chairs are so noisy anytime anyone moves them in our out. They need soft cushions on the chair feet. And we sat upstairs which is supposed to be less noisy. Music was loud and not nice dinner music. Probably due to the sound unfortunately we won't be back.

    My salmon sashimi & Caesar salad were delicious but the crabcakes were bland & the fillet requested medium, was well done. In addition, the upstairs AC was blowing super cold & hard when we got there, so when I asked them to turn it down, they turned it off and couldn’t seem to get it back on again given my repeated requests. As far as the atmosphere, the upstairs was nice, but the downstairs was more lively and had better air conditioning

    This is a good restaurant in its early growing pains. I trust they will work out the kinks with some adjustments to the acoustics of the main lower dining room. Unfortunately right now it’s very hard to hear conversation down stairs. So we moved to the upstairs patio and the food and service were great!

    We had a lovely experience that included a fabulous wait staff, great service and fantastic food. We both tried a specialty margarita which was wonderful, and the tacos. I had the pork and my friend had the steak. With the handmade tortillas, both were large servings and perfect. The flavors were great, the presentation was nice. Our server was awesome! The only things I would say that were not great was the noise level and the prices. There was only 1 other table in our section and we could barely hear each other. The noise reverberates and I cannot imagine what it's like when it's crowded. And of course, the pricing. I think the taco platters were a good value as there was a lot of meat and fixings but some of the other items we looked at were quite expensive. Basically, we loved it and will go back!

    Very small eating space downstairs. More tables up a very steep staircase with no elevator. Smallest martini in the desert with the highest price: $22. Servers were efficient, but cold. The fish prices were high…for that money I would go across the street to Eddie V’s.
    Shorebird Palm DesertResponded 6 days ago
    Dear Awinrm, Thank you for visiting Shorebird Palm Desert. We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you might have felt regarding our layout. We want to clarify that in addition to the stairs (25 steps in total), an elevator is available for easy access to all our dining areas, ensuring comfort for all our guests. We strive to offer exceptional value through our culinary offerings and are continually reviewing our pricing to ensure it reflects the quality we aim to deliver. While we appreciate the merits of our neighbors at Eddie V's, we believe our unique dining experience stands on its own. We hope you will consider joining us again and experience all the amenities we offer. Best regards, Shorebird Palm Team

    DO NOT GO!!!!! Shorebird has no redeeming features. The noise level is so high we couldn't wait to get out of there. We thought sitting upstairs would remedy the problem but it did not. The limited choice menu is VERY EXPENSIVE, small portions and NOT very good food. I'd rather eat the flowers that decorate the exterior of the restaurant.

    Wasn’t impressed and actually irritated that to have happy hour you have to sit at the bar … also the bar counter is too high and sloped for some reason (bad installation) and th bar stools are to low !! You could probably rest your chin on the bar … I was embarrassed that I brought a girlfriend here … wouldn’t be going back !!

    Ambience and service outstanding! As a new restaurant, they just need to work a bit on making sure interesting food choices work, e.g. bread so thin on Cuban pork sandwich it could not be picked up! And tuna enroll soggy. Ingredients were high quality.

    Maybe Shorebird is still finding its "groove", but currently it is not worth visiting now. I inquired about the scallop entre, and it was never mentioned that it was served COLD. No one asked how I was enjoying it....I was not. I assume the kitchen was not fully ready to start the 5pm dinner service and that the corn "chowder"/sauce was not supposed to be served cold. The grilled scallops were perfectly cooked-and quickly lost what heat they had in the cold sauce. The carrot cake with pineapple sauce was exceptional-but to little too late to save the dining experience.

    Dear Val, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Shorebird Palm Desert. We appreciate your honest feedback and are sorry to hear that your dining experience did not meet your expectations, particularly with the scallop entrée. Our intention is always to provide clear menu descriptions and exemplary service, and we regret any oversight in communicating how the dish is served.

We hope you will consider giving us another opportunity to provide a more satisfying dining experience. Best regards, Shorebird Palm Team

    This was our first visit to Shorebird and I was a bit hesitant due to the mixed reviews but since it is a new restaurant I was willing to try it and attribute the difficulties due to their short time of being open. The restaurant is nicely done with a glass wine cellar as a focal point. The main bar is on the right and the dining room is on the left. Upstairs is kind of chopped up with a small sushi bar and a couple dining rooms and an outdoor patio with some nice views. We started with a glass of Austin (Hope) Chardonnay which was good and ordered two appetizers (party of 4). The spicy tuna egg roll was good but was a woefully small portion that I would not order again. The El Paseo roll was good. For entree I got the swordfish sandwich which was good and accompanied by Cole slaw. The Cole slaw was good but way overdressed. My wife got the wedge salad with steak which was good. The service was good but not exceptional as if all the good servers have already been gobbled up by the more established restaurants on El Paseo. My main critique would be that some items are mispriced (over priced). The halibut special was $58 and the swordfish tacos are $42. Based on how busy it was they are doing fine but whether the locals will be around to support those prices when the season is over remains to be seen.

    Dear acintheoc, Thank you for giving Shorebird Palm Desert a try and sharing your detailed feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the ambiance, including the views from our patio. Your comments regarding the portion sizes and pricing are invaluable as we continue to refine our menu offerings to ensure they meet our guests' expectations in terms of quality and value. We appreciate your understanding as a new establishment and are committed to enhancing our service to reach the exceptional standard we strive for. Regarding our pricing, we aim to balance this with the quality of ingredients and the dining experience. We hope to have you back soon, and we look forward to impressing you further as we grow and improve. Best regards, Shorebird Palm Team

    A very disappointing experience. It was our anniversary, we have had multiple dinners at the Shorebird in Newport Beach and the experience was excellent. On this night it was very disappointing.

    My friend and I sat at the bar and had shared sushi and mushroom risotto. Excellent food - the mushroom risotto was the best I've ever had. Sushi was very tasty - altho' it's not the authentic Japanese sushi - it was great. Highly recommended.

    Had a wonderful date night! The food was excellent and the service was also top notch. We went early to avoid a crowd and sat upstairs to enjoy peace and quiet. First time trying this new restaurant. It was a great experience! Pricey but what isn’t these days!

    Service was prompt and attentive. Fish and chips, salad and chicken sandwich . Fish had a soggy batter and smelled too fishy. I ate part of one piece, each person tasted and agreed this fish was past its time. Salad was fine nothing special and chicken sandwhich was dry and overcooked. Onion rings were just ok. The pork stew was cheesy similar to a French Opinion soup although lacked depth of flavor. The pork was tender, bits of of carrots and onion. A dense corned bread with sweet butter was a hit with one person. The shoestring fries were very good. The ice tea was refilled promptly. The upstairs was closed and only the louder downstairs was available. This is a live room and becomes quite loud. There are too many restaurants along El Paseo that has better food for less pricing. This was the second time eating here for lunch, the first without using Open Table, I’ve combined my reviews. Try the Happy Hour as we had a much better experience. Tried the scallops and they were perfect. Overall I have my notes, it’s time to move on. The space is lovely although needs sound deadening to mitigate the noise

    Our server Tony was exceptional! He was very personable and made us feel comfortable and respected. He was knowledgeable of the menu as well as the exceptional cocktails. I had a vodka martini and my husband had a Paloma both were perfect. I had the turkey Cobb and my husband had the fried chicken sandwich with fabulous onion rings. Tony our waiter recognized us from another restaurant and was just a delight. I highly recommend Shorebird as a fine dining experience. I will definitely go back.

    I love this restaurant and the food has always been amazing. But yesterday at lunch the entire upstairs was closed. So we sat by the bar near the front window which was nice. Until the staff at the bar started juicing citrus nonstop and it was so loud I could barely hear my friend talking. The other couple next to us stated the same thing. For so few guests the service was slow and the server didn’t give us a refill until we were almost finished. I think they were understaffed and the bar was closed as well. Not sure what was going on???

    The food is overpriced and not a good value and the noise level was loud but the main negative was the value for the food.

    Went for brunch on Easter Sunday. Short wait for our reservation. Once seated our waiter Marco came right over. Took our drink order and recommended that we order as soon as possible as they were busy and orders were coming out slowly. We ordered the deviled eggs as an appetizer and the lemon ricotta pancakes and both were delicious. Our food was delicious and never felt pressured to finish up. We will definitely be going back and will be requesting Marco as our waiter.
