    Since moving to the valley, we've eaten here a few times and loved it. Last night was an off night... - Appetizers were great! - Our server Mike was great! - Our mains were... disappointing. Chicken and steak were just very average. Worst of all was the manager. We had barely finished our meal when he came to pick up the glasses and was clearly trying to get us to leave. Given that there were free tables, it wasn't an effort to have us leave. You have to wonder who trains management - what happened to letting people finish their meal and leave in peace? We won't be back.

    From the moment you walk in and the signature scent awakens you, you realize this is an experience like no other. Thomas was an amazing dining guide and was a delight. We went very family style ordering a bit of everything. Left comfortably full, happy, and smiling from the memory. A must visit in Indian Wells.

    My friends and I felt rushed, and the customer service was terrible. We seemed to inconvenience our server and the staff, and small requests (like asking for prawns on a salad, and asking for a steak knife for the pork chop) were received like they would take an act of Congress to fulfill. This used to be one of my favorite spots. The service used to be phenomenal, but something has changed and that was not the case when we had dinner there last week. Hopefully the situation will improve as this remains one of the most charming places to dine in terms of decor and ambiance.

    Gorgeous Palm Springs decor with a vintage and tropical feel. The food was decent, I had the granola bowl and while it was tasty it might have cracked someone’s tooth it was so crunchy! Others enjoyed the food, the service was brisk but not overly friendly. An enjoyable spot still, would come back but try a different dish.

    Loved our time there but couldn't give a perfect score because they were out of brunch quiche entry and the avocado toast I had instead was delicious, but rather small for the price. We sat outdoors and it was lovely and not too noisy, however inside seemed awfully noisy.

    We waited 45 mins for our toast.. avocado and pear toasts was all we ordered and although it wasn’t busy it took forever. Our drinks took on average 15-25 mins to arrive. The vibe in the restaurant is great was service was lacking.

    It's rare that everything you order at a restaurant is so amazing. Not to mention Palm springs/Desert area. This restaurant is so good we didn't leave any trace of food on the plates. I go to many fine dining restaurants and this one is by far one of the best. Especially for Vegetarians like my group. Also have to mention the service everywhere at the hotel and restaurant is top level.

    I initially saw this restaurant on Selling Sunset and it looked so cute. So I went to have a lunch and the autumn salad, and the steak frites were delicious. GET THE TACOS!! They are worth it and 3 is enough even for an appetizer. I ordered the crab roll and ended up sending it back and it just isn't flavorful enough. Needed salt, hot sauce, and way more lemon in the lemon aioli. I definitely would go back again, possible even stay in the hotel. It's quiet and serene.

    The complete experience was wo derail. From the old Palm Springs vibe to wonderful, attentive, and personable staff. The setting is perfect. The drink options and mixologist skills were absolutely wonderful. Then you get to the food. The menu choices were unexpectedly good. We have special dietary needs, gluten-free, and the choices were varied, and each appetizer and entree was a true joy. The chef has done a terrific job. The servers were professional Nd attentive. Thanks to everyone. Ron and Marlene Slee

The manager (forgot to ask her name but she was a very kind and elegant lady with blonde short hair) in the front was so nice that she gave our doggie a toy and some treats!! Dog was soooo happy! Of course we were too! Would come back again and would recommend whoever comes to Palm Desert try it out!

    The ambiance, decor, food and cocktails were outstanding. We had a very distracted server who failed to meet our needs, check on us or refill our drinks during our 90 minute brunch experience. This took something significant away from our overall enjoyment. The other servers looked lovely and attentive so I think we just had a bad apple. We would go again but request a different server for a more complete experience of this otherwise lovely and tasty spot.
