Loved the ambiance of this special boutique hotel and restaurant! So sexy, and gorgeous with it's mood lighting on a warm desert evening. The Pink Cabana restaurant is a hip, interesting, beautifully designed space with vintage elements that make it unique and very much a desired desert destination. My favorite cocktail was the "Buzz Button" but I didn't care for the edible flower that comes with it....just the cocktail itself was delicious. The beet salad and roasted veg starters were very tasty. I had the Tagliatelle for dinner and wished I could have finished it all because each bite with crazy good....but I was so full! It was my birthday, so instead of dessert (see previous comment about being stuffed) the waiter brought us a glass of bubbly and set us up at our own private fire pit. Amazing service, gorgeous grounds and great food....we will definitely be back very soon.

First time back this season and unfortunately took some friends. The place was in disarray perhaps due to a large party-tables with no chairs sitting randomly throughout the restaurant-service was not up to par and strangely the lights kept going up and down at one point so far down we could hardly find our food. I hope this was aberration as I have always liked this place.

Excellent food and first rate service in a sexy atmosphere. The Harissa Chicken sounds boring but it’s anything but. Crispy brown on the outside, moist and tender on the inside in a delicious sauce. The fish option is beautiful and flavorful and the choice of my husband. The food is pared with an excellent and professional staff. Greg was our waitperson. He was attentive but not intrusive. He has complete knowledge of the menus options and preparation. We ask for Greg every time we go, although everyone from the valet and up are welcoming and courteous.

The Pink Cabana is one of the prettiest Restaurants in the Desert area and we have many!! From the moment you step through the big, beautiful Moroccan doors at the entryway to the pool and Restaurant, it's like stepping into another time. Its Art Deco decor is beyond aesthetically pleasing; from the wallpaper to the furniture and the lighting, to the glassware and dishes, to the view of the hotel pool. The music is pleasant and played at a reasonable volume but it could be a little more suited to the theme of the Restaurant. The service was great regarding efficiency but our particular Server was extra dry on personality. The cocktails are delicious but very much on the pricey side and the food, exotic and delectable but also pricey. I have been for both Lunch and Dinner and found the experience delightful for each. I wish them great success.

The service was wonderful, staff was friendly. The food was lack luster. We ordered the hummus, prawns, and the two platter cheese.

The prawns were basically frozen shrimp, that was soggy and watered down. The hummus lacked flavor and basic grocery store quality. The cheese again was basic cheese selections and nothing ordered warranted anything near the cost for the quality. The cocktails were good. I had an apperol spritz and my daughter had an old fashion. We paid $115 for this lack of quality and it wasn’t justified.

We loved the ambiance, but didn’t feel the price point or menu justified the 5 star Michigan chef.

Have been here twice. Once for a meal and once for drinks. The interior is amazing! Such a great remodel. I went again w out of town friends this past Thursday. I was raving about it. Wow. I was disappointed. The service was extremely lacking. I do t know what has happened but management better address this before business dives. We were one of 4 tables in the whole place on a Thursday night at 730 late Oct. This should NOT be the case. The food was not served w any veggies. Not one entree at the table had a vegetable of any kind. Odd. I was served a turned glass of red (1 of only 3 glasses of red offered). It took forever to get it replaced. As a matter of fact the bartender could t be bothered. The HOSTESS got my wine. Ridiculous. Again it was Not busy. The table next to us had issues as well. The manager had to speak w them. I was so sad about this experience. It’s just a little jewel, decor wise. I hope they figure this out.

Very fun space within the Sands Hotel. Great vibe and energy. Our server was excellent and very personable. Manager came over to check on us. Only part of service that needed improvement is the food runners; didn’t seem to know table locations so they kept trying to drop other food at our table - happened like four times and got to be silly,

Like the variety in the small menu, food was very good. Nice wine list.

Definitely give it a try. Fun experience.

I saw this restaurant on Open Table a while back and wanted to give it a try. A good friend of mine was celebrating a birthday and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try a new place for lunch. We entered through the rear courtyard and alongside the pool to the entrance of this Mediterranean styled bistro. It is adorned with beautiful tile work, bright colors, natural light, and various brass elements that provide for the perfect backdrop to this unique dining experience. We walked to the front podium where we met a young woman named Mollie. With a warm smile and even warmer greeting she walked us over to our reserved corner table. We were excited to try new things and eager to chat with Mollie about the menu. She was more than capable to recite chapter and verse about the handcrafted cocktails and unique food items being served for lunch. We opted to follow her lead and ordered some of her personal favorites from the menu. The Turkish iced coffee and their unique take on a Pina colada were fresh and tasty. And from the homemade naan with hummus and cross-section of olives to the falafel and flavorful chicken sandwich, the food couldn’t have been any better. The staff was kind and professional and Mollie kept a watchful on us throughout. Two hours never went by so quickly. And to top off the dining experience was a bowl of ice cream with warm cookies alongside. An unexpected treat to finish off an incredible meal and cleanse the palette. Thanks to Mollie for making my friends special day that much more special. I’ll be back for brunch soon. Sincerely, David & Juli (Rancho Mirage)

Pink Cabana is our favorite new Desert discovery. The food is outstanding (best fried calamari and pan-sautéed fish of the day we've had in a long time). The service is SO friendly -- they make you feel like long-lost relatives! Elegant bar and great creative cocktails and a fun beach/elegant atmosphere complete the package. (Not to mention that the Sands boutique hotel in which it is located inspires dreams of future trips.) The best way to communicate how great this is is to say that it caused us to break our vacation "rule" of never visiting a place twice in the same trip. It was worth it to be non-rule-compliant! Fabulous!

Dinner was lovely - the restaurant was pretty bright for an 8pm dinner reservation. The waiter was clearly over being at work on a Monday night.
