    This restaurant was highly overpriced. For the price of around ~$50 an entree, we were expecting delicious dinners. My boyfriend didn’t love his ribeye and our friends were left severely underwhelmed with their seabass as well. My vegetarian friend could only order the Impossible Vegan Meatloaf, which was the biggest waste of money. $49 for nothing. Our appetizer, the bacon and Orbison tartelette, could have been store-bought or even frozen. Our dirty martinis had too much vermouth. The only thing we loved was the truffle fries. Our server was stern, inattentive and not very friendly. While the place had nice decor and style, save yourself the money and go to any of the other wonderful restaurants in Palm Springs.

    Great ambiance. Good service and awesome food/drinks The appies were so good . We ordered the caramelized onion, corn bread and deviled eggs. Very expensive tho. Chicken schnitzel was the best. Steak was also great. And the stroganoff was good, but our least favorite. There was not a whole lot of flavor.

    Very friendly staff from start to finish. Our waitress, Kaliya was fantastic. Food - beautiful presentation and very flavorful. Felt like we had a very healthy meal (edamame hummus, market lettuce salad and sea bass) which isn’t always easy with fine dining. We topped that off with chocolate tart - it was creamy, not super chocolate-y and the crust was a little soggy. Eclectic wine list includes California, French, Italian and Uruguayan and Tasmanian. The Tasmanian Pinot Noir was unique and excellent. The Albariño was dry and oak forward. Beautiful interior- calm with relaxing yet upbeat electronic music.

    The atmosphere is unbeatable. It’s elegant and absolutely gorgeous. The food was pretty good, although the steak was a bit tough and the fish and pasta both needed salt. The desserts were delicious. Service was attentive. There was a door open to the patio the whole time and it was quite chilly outside, so the main dining room was a bit drafty. This was our second New Year’s dinner at this venue, and despite the unsurpassed ambience, I’ll likely look around for another suitable option next year given the shortcomings.

    We were very communicative with the restaurant- we were there for a birthday and babymoon dinner, so we were hoping everything would feel a bit extra special. Instead, we were ignored for a while once we were seated. Then when the servers did come, they rushed our whole meal, trying to bring all the courses at the same time. We had to ask them to hold on the the entrees, as we had only just begun our starter. My husband felt like he needed to remind them it was a special occasion, even though it was in the reservation note and he had called the restaurant again the day before. We were so disappointed with the whole experience - our first meal on our first ever vacation just the two of us, without our toddler. Just terrible service and not a great use of our special and rare time alone, and an awful birthday dinner overall.

    Returned to see if improved. Great setting just inconsistent food prep and slow, sloppy bar service. Martini was spilled and rather than make another beautifully they brought a cup and poured it into the original glass. Still hoping they can get it right because it’s a lovely place.

    etting is lovely. Food is average at best (if you manage to get served what you actually ordered) Drinks come midway through your meal. Tried to pay and wanted to throw myself into the pool it took so long. Servers very apologetic which says to me it’s understaffed, and the staff also lack training. An elegant setting let down by the absolute basics at every stage. Management if you are reading this, please do some soul-searching.

    A group of friends met for a holiday lunch. We all enjoyed the meal and the overall experience. The food was delicious, the service was perfect, and the atmosphere was very nice. The setting is very "Palm Springs" with the beautiful dining room, and the amazing views poolside. All of us had been to the Colony Club before, and we are looking forward to the next time.

    Overpriced for the quality. Nothing was bad but nothing was remarkable (which is what you’d expect at the price point.) There are many better place in Palm Springs to go for a nice dinner. Worth stopping here for a cocktail and nothing more. Ambiance was lovely.

    The best part of this dining experience was pulling up to the valet. I took the initiative to book a table here more than a month in advance (11/15/22) and expected a flawless experience given how long the Colony has existed. The team was short staffed but from the beginning the maitre’d seemed determined to bring our table nothing but grief. Service was beyond lethargic and other tables received their food ahead of us despite arriving later. After more than an hour one main course dish had become “sold out” after several other tables received. Not the best start to our family trip to Palm Springs and definitely will not be returning. I plan to share my experience with my peers who also visit the area and urge them to go elsewhere. Truly disappointing and will not be returning despite the chic setting.

    Was recommended the corner seat and sat there, 3 servers with trays of water passed us and told us they would be right back. we finally got water 20 minutes after being seated. Highway robbery prices, we ordered parcooked items. Shakshuka and kebob. We Waited another 20 minutes and left. The restaurant was nearly empty sans a large obnoxious party in the private room.

    Service was astoundingly poor from start to finish - including long wait to get our table, long wait for our dishes, which arrived at weirdly different times, waiting for almost 5 minutes to get cutlery so that we could eat our meals that had been sitting on our table for the whole time. The wait staff just seemed harried and inexperienced. The starters were amazing but the one non meat main dish was poorly cooked (and probably not a good choice). The wine per glass options were limited though the cocktails were excellent. The ambience was truly lovely, and we recommend sitting outside by the pool if you’re going to go. But don’t go.

    Utterly terrible in almost every single way except for the ambience. Service was awful. Arrived at 630, didnt get out of there til 930. They messed up our orders, then tried to tell us that the sea bass we ordered (from the menu, "Sea Bass") was actually "Salmon-Sea Bass" when we told them that the fish on our plate was salmon and not sea bass. At least own your mistake. Don't like and try to tell us that you have created a hybrid species of fish specially for our meal. What an absolute joke. Tried to ask for additional bread for the constant waiting and waiting and repeated mistakes; were told we would have to pay additional for that. Cornbread cost $19 and were two tiny pieces of cold bread with butter. Don't order it. One small bit each for four people is all you'll get. Entrees themselves were mediocre to say the LEAST. Edible but 1000% not worth the cost of each which were all around $50 or more. Then the bill came, they F'd it all up. Put other people's drinks on our tab and then upcharged our steak by $30. Good thing I went over it carefully as we had to ask for all those mistakes to be removed. This place was bad bad bad which is a shame because I've been coming for years. No more.

    Hummus came out with 1 tablespoon hummus. Ordered the schnitzel and that is literally all you get. The weird part is there are no sides so you think you get a meal. Who wants a fried piece of chicken with arugula thrown on top, explain the meal or provide sides. Staff was friendly but also very slow. I will not go back.

    I had heard a lot about the Colony Club as my Daughter had brunch there and said that it was great. I had high expectations and it was Christmas Eve. When I made the reservation an enthusiastic person named Gabe said ask for me and I will give you 15 percent off of your bill. When I arrived Gabe greeted us and I mentioned what we discussed and he looked at me like I was from Mars and never offered anything. The food was mediocre and the service was not remarkable. Overall I would say that I was disappointed. I have eaten at the best restaurants around the world and this is not one of them.

    Chic, hip atmosphere, more Key West than Palm Springs. Good food. Server allowed me to sample the Bloody Mary so I could get the right amount of heat. We like sitting by the pool, but on a rainy day, also enjoyed being inside. Good for locals. Also a place appealing to visitors.

    Very expensive for what you got. Very limited menu. Our drinks sat ready on the bar for ten minutes and we had to flag down the waiter to get him to pay attention and bring them to us. But a lovely room. Won’t be going back. They also charged $2 for the martini olive and an extra $2 for having it on the rocks. $22 in all and the glass wasn’t even full.

    Such a beautiful space and amazing potential. The service was embarrassingly bad, starting with the host who was generally unpleasant in his demeanor. The restaurant space was drafty, at best. Our server was poorly trained and had extremely limited knowledge of the menu. The additional service staff seemed equally bewildered with basics such as what carb-vehicle to serve with the caviar we ordered. At first we were told nothing was served with it. Then were told crostinis was all they could offer. Embarrassing to offer such delicacies and have zero concept for the servers on what and how the same should be served. The squash salad was okay. The seabass was perfectly cooked. Again, all of this in spite the staff’s knowledge and attentiveness. The butterscotch pudding and cheesecake were decent. We ordered Frangelico to accompany the desserts. After what seemed like an eternity, the desserts arrived. Then we were told by our primary waitress that the restaurant didn’t have Frangelico as she promptly turned and left the table. No alternatives. No suggestions. Just a prompt departure. Great potential here, but sadly not terrific in any way.
