    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.

    Food was good Service was poor. No utensils with food Food brought out quickly and was not warm They forgot one entire portion of the pre-fix dinner Israel, our waiter , was great. I realize the Thanksgiving Dinner is different than they normally serve but they should have practiced for a family style meal

    Absolutely phenomenal experience! Our server Marisol was friendly, knowledgeable and provided excellent service. Our bartender (gentleman's name unknown) was also friendly and had an extensive knowledge of the beverage menu, and created by far the best Amaretto sour I've ever had the pleasure of consuming; perfectly frothy, creamy, sweet and definitely a treat for the palate. Our meal of zucchini bread, shishito peppers, sea bass and chicken schnitzel was divine!!!! A 10/10, I will absolutely be back to enjoy the ambience and delicious fare!

    This is a must-do because of this fabulous hotel. I love the makeover and it feels like vintage Palm Springs. We sat at the pool for Sunday brunch and food & service was great. A bit pricey for breakfast ($25 for a breakfast sandwich) but we wanted to experience it.

    Unfortunately, while the room was very pretty, this was probably the worst value I’ve ever experienced at a restaurant. Our service was just ok, we were seated by the open door with a cold breeze and next to a big loud group even though the room was mostly empty. But the real issue was that the prices were insultingly exorbitant for what we ate. Case in point, my $45 dollar “chicken schnitzel with crushed Persian cucumber salad” which consisted of an unseasoned fried chicken cutlet topped with tiny handful of dry lettuce and two teeny chunks of cucumber. For $45. My husband’s bowl of pasta was ok, but even more absurdly expensive at $55 for a simple pasta dish. We ate at three other wonderful restaurants in Palm Springs and one in LA, and for the same price check at each, we had multiple courses at a fine dining level. I understand that costs have gone up for restaurants generally, but $45 for an unremarkable and lonely chicken breast is just wrong. By all means. Have a drink at the pretty bar, but don’t waste your money on the food.

    We previously visited frequently when this was under the name of Purple Palm and haven’t been back since pre-COVID. Pros: incredible atmosphere, great space, mood/lighting is on point. Cons: service was very slow, our particular server seemed impatient and forgetful. our drink order took 20+ mins to arrive and as a result we were told we’d receive complimentary dessert. after we finished our meals, we were left with dessert menus and had to ask for said complimentary dessert which was embarrassing. 🤦🏻‍♂️ can’t say we loved the experience but still love the space and vibe. we don’t fault staff as we know every place/person has off-nights.

    I love the Colony Club but they seemed to have a bit of an off night in that our waitress was spacey, knew nothing about the wine list, and a couple of our dishes were just so-so. I've had top-notch meals there in the past and will certainly be a repeat customer, so I know they can do better. The bar tender was charming, the drink menu fun, and the schnitzel was so very tasty. The ambiance is perfect; we'll be back and look forward to writing a 5 star review next time.

    The prices on open table do not match the menu prices, which are considerably higher. Food was very overpriced compared to other dining in the desert. Mistakes were made with wrong charges and multiple charges added to the credit card.

    I am sorry to say that in spite of a lovely atmosphere, the best thing about the dinner I had at the Colony Club was the cocktails, and table by the pool. The salad was gritty, the zucchini bread strangely textured, and the steak was very expensive and gristly. If you want to come here, have a drink at the bar, and then eat elsewhere. The staff did try to make amends and offered a free dessert, but it was too late to save the slow service, mediocre and greatly overpriced food.

    Stayed at the Colony Palms for my birthday this past weekend, and booked at the Colony Club on Saturday evening for dinner. Absolutely amazing experience! The restaurant is immaculate, and the staff is incredible. The zucchini bread, yellowfin tuna carpaccio, and sausage wrapped pork tenderloin were prepared to perfection. The craft cocktails were exquisitely made as well. Highly recommended!!

    Recent PS trip with my sister and dinner @ Colony Club was both our favorite. We sat outside and the ambiance was v dreamy — lighting was perfection with the flame torches near the pool, the pool itself, soft lighting from the restaurant and moonlight. Would love to stay here next time! Oh and definitely recommend to order the sea bass.

    Excellent dinner, service and experience. The staff went above and beyond to ensure an excellent experience from start to finish. I was promptly greeted by Samsoa who was my server who was outstanding in every way and suggested an excellent wine. Gabriel took time to talk to me about the craft cocktails and the menu and I was extremely please with all of his recommendations and enjoyed learning about the preparation of the drinks. If only I could drink more than two drinks, I would have tried tried them all. I ate every bite on my plate. I have eaten at two other restaurants during my stay here in Palm Springs and my experience at The Colony Club was by far the best. I will be returning to share my experience and the food with my traveling colleagues.
