    The Colony Club is one of the more expensive choices you could make in PS, but it's probably worth it. The poolside location and view of the mountains are classic PS. The service is friendly and helpful, The avocado toast could be a meal in itself. And the baked egg atop a bed of juicy tomatoes, onions and other things was delicious with a Southwest flare.

    We usually love this place. However last night was just ok. Sure it was crowded due to Mod Week. But it was way understaffed which made waits excessively long for drinks, courses, check. And the food was just ok. We’ll be back, hoping last night was an aberration.

    The food was just ordinary best. They were out of several things from the menu at 5:30 on a Saturday night which means they weren’t out of it. They just never had it to begin with. Several bar items also were missing. Service was off in general.

    You can't find a better spot to dine al fresco with views of the mountain second to none. Waiter was efficient and professional. My wife ordered the swordfish, which was cooked just right and the sauce complemented it well. I had the steak. It was a good-sized portion, and quite flavorful on a bed of spinach. We shared a butterscotch pudding for dessert that transported us back to childhood only better. Expensive but well worth the experience.

    This is a beautiful setting and off the beaten path so not always packed and busy. The menu is limited but interesting. Service was great and so were the cocktails. Enjoyed the appetizers we had - deviled eggs and truffle fries. My partner and I had Prime Rib Eye steaks and they were just ok. The asparagus instead of potatoes was appreciated and the steaks were cooked to order but were not "Prime". We actually buy Prime from Costco regularly and can tell the difference between Select and Choice. Was disappointed in this aspect - especially for $62. Would rather have no designation and just say Rib Eye so our expectations were not be disappointed. I probably would have got the swordfish instead. My learning for future situations is to let the server know that we plan to order the steaks specifically because they are "Prime" but to check with the chef in case he/she has run out.

    WOW - what can I say! The Colony Club was such a beautiful little treat. We were met with a card & champagne to celebrate our recent engagement and it just set the night off on the right foot. Walking in, you feel like a 1950s movie star and the staff sure treat you like it. There was not a single thing we didn't love - the ambiance was something special, our server was phenomenal, and the food was just spectacular. 10/10 enjoyed our experience and highly recommend if you're looking for a real special dining experience in Palm Springs!

    Having enjoyed many meals at this restaurant I was surprised to arrive for Saturday Brunch with my guests to be met with loud pounding music from a DJ at poolside. The Colony is a lovely example of old Palm Springs, but this workout music just doesn't fit the mood. I hope the management will discontinue this and leave the guests to enjoy the pool and a leisurely Saturday brunch.

    We have been to the Colony Club many times over the past few years and even held our wedding brunch here 2 years ago. We had dinner here recently and had a very disappointing dinner experience with the food. We ordered "free range" chicken breast. What was presented was more akin to processed chicken; the temperature was inappropriate, and it was brought out with a green sauce. The server seemed unsure if it was even suitable to be put on the chicken or not (it was not). The manager was very kind to not charge for the dinner (we had ordered wine, salad, and starters, which we paid for). This meal was, unfortunately, a travesty to chicken.

    Birthday dinner. Table availability was delayed by dinners taking longer than expected. They were most gracious in apology and as we were celebrating a special occasion, comped some items. They made our dinner special. Meatloaf and swordfish delicious. Because we were dining, valet parking free. Highly recommend.

    Have been multiple times and usually love Colony Club. This visit was extremely disappointing on all fronts. Truffle fries had very little truffle, cod stuffed in a cabbage leaf was misguided and lacked flavor. Friends had swordfish that got mixed reviews but definitely not inspired.

    We were at the Colony Club on a rainy day, but it was so fun to sit on their heated patio and soak up the old-school, retro Palm Springs vibe. The brunch was delicious—try the decadent French toast made with a giant hunk of challah bread. The Waldorf chicken salad sandwich was yummy too. Service was friendly and impeccable.

    What a shame. Last year I came here twice in 1 day cause the service and food was impeccable… but this time it was a let down. The ravoli wasn’t cooked properly it was still hard. The cod dish was cold. Our waitress didn’t have a clue what the menu was about. Such a shame cause last time it was five stars. Not really good enough for the prices you pay.

    Honestly, extremely disappointing. Took over 30 minute just to get a waiter to come to our table and kind of went downhill from there. Food was overcooked and dry. Drinks were incredibly slow at being served or as was water in being refilled after numerous polite asks. The confusing part was restaurant wasn’t even that busy. Globally the only bright spot was the wait assistant who honestly tried to make our experience better. I’ve eaten here before with much better success but last night it was nearly cost $200 for 2 people for an experience that wasn’t worth $20

    This restaurant is not worth the hype. The ambiance was enjoyable, but the cost did not align with the quality of the food, leaving a dissatisfying taste in both the literal and metaphorical sense. The service was subpar aside from the busser who checked in on us as the weather got cold and offered to move a heat lamp closer to keep my 2.5-year-old daughter warm. Someone from the restaurant moved the heat lamp away, which I understand its placement posed a fire risk, but no alternate option to keep the guests (my young toddler) warm was offered. This person was rude and acted like we were the ones who asked for and moved the heat lamp next to our table, which we did not. After the heat lamp was moved, we tried to get our check right away to get someplace warm, but that took a long time, too. Unfortunately, the slow and inattentive staff overshadowed the otherwise pleasant surroundings. Again, this restaurant is not worth the hype.

    as a health conscious vegan who's also gluten free, this otherwise gorgeous and elegant placer is a hit or miss for me. we come here every year in the winter and this time, it was a miss, specifically our-- only to me-- extremely rude waiter. once she realized i was vegan, she offered the one vegan dish made with "impossible meat". upon my noting that i did not consume this highly processed, unhealthy meat imitation, she offered to ask the chef to make a vegan version of the risotto, which she then told me, the chef declined. from then on, it went downhill. there literally seemed to be nothing on the menu for me and when i asked the about the sides, she at first said they didn't offer any. when she finally offered to bring me some spinach (just in olive oil, she said the chef would not do it with garlic and chili-- "we don't have any chili here", in her words), she brought me some asparagus, spinach, and finger potatoes. upon my request to get some olive oil, she at first refused, saying, the vegetables were already cooked in olive oil. she then scoffed at my asking for a simple entree plate, as my sides were brought in little service bowls without a proper plate to eat from. when she finally brought a small desert plate and some olive oil, and i dared ask for some salt and pepper, as my food was completely unseasoned, she scoffed again, saying very dismissively: 'anything else???". i know my case is rare, bc there still aren't many vegans, at least in palm springs, but an upscale restaurant like the colony club should a) have the same quality every season, and b) treat all paying customers the same. my fellow diners were seriously shocked at her treatment of me. especially because she was exceedingly nice and polite to them. as a trans woman, i am already used to being singled out and being mistreated, so it is truly upsetting to also being treated rudely as a vegan. we will not be going back to this place this season, hoping that next year will be better again.

    Food- overpriced and beyond average. Service - was turtle pace. Drinks- amazing! We ordered chicken salad sandwiches and they were out, however the table behind was served them as we paid our check. A manager was fortunately in tune with our slow and odd service and apologized. I would recommend going for drinks but don’t waste your money on the food.

    Average food and limited brunch menu. Chicken salad sandwich and cold fries for $27. Burgers were good but ridiculously priced at $30. Service was slow and inattentive despite the place being only half full. Cool poolside ambiance was the only redeeming feature for us. It’s ok as a poolside venue for hotel guests but not worth a trip in my opinion.
