It was great
It was amazing, dinner was great & we loved the service!
It was a great Birthday dinner! Pink champagne served at the end for BDay, nice touch and fresh baked choc cookies and scoop of ice cream with candle too! Thank you!
Friends birthday weekend!
For the price range, there are a lot of better restaurants. I'd love to see it either A. be more affordable or B. create a unique enough dining experience to warrant it's price point.
We enjoyed the atmosphere and vibe during our dinner. Fun vibrant atmosphere and great bar!!! Portions were perfect so you didn’t et stuffed and could enjoy different courses. Halibut was fantastic!!!
Great ambiance. The food and drink was very good. Our service was so-so but that did not spoil the experience.
The drinks are always tasty and beautifully presented, the service is warm, friendly and relaxed (Ask for Sarah!), the menu is on the smaller side but everything is so fresh and well executed. Plus a beautiful dining room that is like no other!
Loved it!! Such a cute and instagrammable location. Food is delicious but the portion sizes are small.
The restaurant had been enthusiastically recommended by friends and the designer is a client of the shop of my spouse. It was a special evening, a birthday celebration that also included a night's stay at the hotel. The ambiance is quite lovely, and notable by the restraint in the number of tables in the large open space. There is no feeling of being crowded at all which is wonderful. The service was friendly and attentive- a very knowledgeable server made the experience seamless.
The food, however was sadly uneven. I began with the Iberian ham, which was delicious. It was served with a truly wonderful rucola salad in a perfect mustard vinaigrette and spectacular fresh bread, toasted on the grill. My spouse had the young lettuces salad which was also quite terrific. We enjoyed a slightly overpriced but delicious bottle of CA Central Coast Viognier wine.
Things went awry with the entrees. I had the Ahi Tuna which I was advised would come (as it should) rare. It was nicely pink in the very center but quite brown and dry through most of it. It also lacked almost any taste and had to be salted at the table to bring any flavor in. My spouse ordered the halibut, which was also overcooked, dry and almost flavorless.
As it was a birthday, I thought we'd have something fun and light to share- vanilla ice cream with chocolate chip cookies. The ice cream was delicious, the fresh and warm cookies likewise. But the presentation left a great deal to be desired- a bowl with a double sized scoop of ice cream, three rather small cookies and a metal candle which looked rather like a medical implement stuck in the ice cream. Disappointing. But, as the starters showed such promise, the room was lovely and the wait staff friendly, we'll give it another try.
Birthday celebration that was fabulous 🌟
Service exceptional made the celebration even more celebratory.
Food delicious with beautiful presentation.
This restaurant is a must to try.
Guarantee it will become one of your favorites,
Great place to have small plates or fine dining.
Contemporary menu with fabulous wine list and creative cocktails.
We had our anniversary dinner here, after a hellacious day of travel. Every single bite we put in our mouths was heaven. Service was impeccable. Mixed drinks were amazing. Thanks all!
This is one of our favorite restaurants, the service is always excellent as well as the food and specialty cocktails.
Awesome!! Amazing and so good... a hidden gem.
We brought friends from out of town and we had a marvelous experience, as usual. Greg is an exceptional wait person and the food never disappoints. This is easily the best restaurant in the Coachella Valley.
The food was amazing I had the tuna and the beet salad both were outstanding. Greg our waiter was the best !!
Loved this hidden and beautiful location in Palm Desert. Great ambiance, service- excellent drinks and Sunday menu.
Definitely 5 *❤
Our server, Laura, was amazing. She was so attentive and made the experience so special. The GF had the Lamb and she swore it was the best she eva had. I had the steak frites and it was great as well. Charming place
Great food, amazing decor! Will definitely be back!
Fantastic ambiance. Friendly staff. Unique menu that features seasonal ingredients. Worth checking out even if it’s just for the scene a craft cocktail.
The Pink Cabana had perfect ambiance & aesthetic with absolutely delicious food and friendly staff. We couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our anniversary!
My husband and I were on vacation and I had seen so many gorgeous pictures of this restaurant and hotel on Instagram. We tried it out and it was DELICIOUS food and beautiful ambiance and decor and our waiter was so friendly and attentive. The prices are on the higher side but overall we had a great time. The burger was VERY TASTY!! The waiter took a few pics of us too which was a bonus for our travels!
Total gem of a place! Great food in one of the coolest rooms in the Palm Springs area. Great staff as well, highly recommended!
What a fun place and delicious food too. Very fun decor. Staff was very friendly. They recommended the Turkish coffee and it was fab. Setting was very quiet, but that is because it is off season right now. I will plan to visit again.
Thank you Mary! so glad you like our turkish coffee, its my favorite. please come back and say hello next time! Mollie B.
Great food and service. Worth the 1/2 hr. Drive
Sooooo Palm Springs...in Indian Wells. Very cool vibe with great food and great service. Would recommend to anyone who wants the laid-back PS atmosphere, but doesn't want to drive there.
I love this place! Had never tried lunch here and it was perfect. My friend and I split a tomato/yellow watermelon salad, a calamari and the falafel plate. It was was all great. Had Moroccan Iced Tea. Views of the pretty pool and palms.
This was my second visit, and both were terrific. Friendly, competent service and delicious food. The menu is not overly ambitious, but the quality is high and the atmosphere is quiet and lovely. Visitors will appreciate the stunning design; a smaller and more casual spot than The Parker. Locals will enjoy the beautiful room and mid century inspired tiles. Truly a lovely spot.
Lovely meal, top-notch service. There's also free electric charging station outside, altogether a wonderful experience.
What an amazing evening. You enter through a time warp. The foyer has a Mediterranean theme. Then you step into the beautiful courtyard of the hotel that houses the restaurant. The dining room and bar area are reminiscent of a 50s Palm Springs club. You almost expect to see Bob Hope and Bing Crosby sitting at the bar. The flavor, portion, and presentation of the meals were amazing. Service was outstanding and every dish that was recommended was even better than she had described! The night was not inexpensive, but it was worth the cost to help make this Fathers Day with my children special!
Great staff very friendly, nice ambiance love the Morrocan design entrance.
Amazing restaurant. We went with a group. Everyone’s apps and meals were on point. Beautiful cocktails. First time I’ve given a restaurant all five stars. Service was lovely as well. We went back for brunch as well the next day. Perfect dining experiences. Highly recommend.
Very good, some food was excellent!
Pink ambiance. Good for Palm Springs dinner. A bit pricey for what you get....
The food was super fresh and the ambiance lovely. Looking forward to going back the next time we're in town. We visited Newport Coast/Laguna and Palm Springs on this trip. Our dinner at the Pink Sands was the best meal of the trip!
you are so kind to pass on this note and thrilled we were the standout!! come back and see us soon!
lovely and isntagramable setting..that may be the only problem since most weekends are filled with loud and happy groups of young women having bachelorettenparties anti can get LOUD. happy none the less and weeknights , breakfasts and lunch a quieter option for a lovely restaurant with exceptional food,service and ambience.
thank you for the great feedback!! we appreciate you coming in even when it does get noisy and hopefully we can find a cozier setting for you on your next visit!
