    Delicious food and great service. Beet salad, Fritto misto and prawn cocktail were excellent. Steak frites, salmon and harissa chicken all prepared beautifully. Beautiful setting and design.

    Very hip scene. Great food. Our table was right in front of the bathrooms…. It was strange - no one could tell the women’s bathroom from the men’s…seems like that’s an easy fix.

    Hello, we love your restaurant. Our only issue is when dining with a group of 6 or more and your new policy of 3 credit cards maximum per table. That makes it difficult for the customers who want to share the bill equally. Thank you

    A great server makes the meal. Jazmin was awesome! Helpful with recommendations, knowledgeable of the menu items origin and preparation, and attentive without being intrusive! The Pink Cabana is such a special oasis, we always feel transported as soon as we walk thru the lobby gates and into the coutyard. Our "go to" for "date" night (the bourbon date ice cream is delish!)

    Perfect in Pink Cabana for Brunch! Eggs benedict were delicious, Country Ham and Gruyere Quiche is a must order - the Mornay sauce makes the dish along with the flaky crust, the quiche was light and flavorful with plenty of ham. The Moroccan club sandwich was a perfect blend of flavors that was so unique and tasty - also a must order. Cocktails were expertly mixed and in house Valrhona pot de creme was light in texture - a huge portion that we easily split between the three of us. The decor was spectacular! Kudos to designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard and especially the chef! Thank you for a perfect brunch outing.

    The food was okay - but drinks the night before were outstanding. Moroccan sandwich had no flavor. Colleague's salad had dressing on only a portion of the greens and not enough for the dry portion of the salad. I would recommend to a friend but mention that the food is so so.

    The night started out good, the host seated us quickly and the first server (male) came by to take our drink order. Then a female server came by and asked for our drink order and we told her someone had already taken it. Maybe this is what caused the lack of service that we received the rest of the evening since the staff seemed confused which server was assigned to our table because they would both stop by and then we would see no one for a long time when we needed something. The service was slow and spotty the rest of the night. I do have to say the bussers did keep our water refilled regularly. Food was a little slow to come out and portions were smaller than expected and I am not a big eater. I had to ask for an order of bread because my friend was still hungry after finishing her pasta plate. Overall, for the price and the service that evening it was a big disappointment since the ambiance was great. We really wanted to love it.

    Dining at the Pink Cabana in Palm Desert was an exquisite experience that exceeded all expectations. The moment I stepped into the vibrant and chic atmosphere, I knew I was in for a treat. The drinks were nothing short of spectacular, crafted with precision and bursting with flavor. Each sip was a delightful journey for the taste buds, making the cocktail selection a highlight of the evening. The culinary offerings at Pink Cabana were nothing short of a gastronomic delight. The menu featured a diverse array of dishes, each thoughtfully curated and expertly prepared. From the appetizers to the main courses, every bite was a revelation of taste and texture. The attention to detail in the presentation elevated the overall dining experience. The ambiance added a touch of glamour to the evening, with its chic pink decor and stylish furnishings. The service was impeccable, with attentive staff who added to the overall warmth of the place. Dining at Pink Cabana was not just a meal; it was a culinary journey that left a lasting impression. I highly recommend this gem in Palm Desert to anyone seeking an unforgettable dining experience.

    How do you set reservation for Valentine’s Day when we got there? We had to wait about 1520 minutes to be seated when they were plenty of tables open. The menu was set for Valentine’s Day with the worst tasting food from appetizers to entree. Very small portion for steak and very dry chicken. The bill was very expensive for horrible tasting food.

    We were there on a set menu night. The food was good but we felt very rushed by the servers… and for no reason as there weren’t any guests coming in for our table after us. The menu showed wine pairings but we found out after the second dish came out that we had to ask for those separately, so we missed pairing the first wine with the first dish. Food was delicious. But very expensive ! Have had much better evenings there.

    6 of us dined for lunch. Not crowded, maybe 4 tables total. Took forever to order, once we ordered took 30 minutes to get drinks. Ordered a hot tea which then took another 45 min to receive. Waiter kept disappearing and when we did see him and ask for something he acted put out to have to work. We sat for almost 2 hours before food came. Love the ambiance but there are so many options in the desert for great food, service and ambience. Hopefully pink cabana was just having a bad day and will get it together.

    Great food and lively server. Room is beautiful. Kitchen was very slow to send out our food but our hour and a half wait was rewarded with two excellent dishes - the pork chop and the cauliflower steak. Fritto misto was crisp and interesting, with olives, artichokes and calamari. Interesting cocktails and wine by the glass choices. Worth a visit.

    We have been with you several times and have always found it a very positive experience.However, this time my wife ordered a sweet and dry vermouth with no ice, which she often does at restaurants. What she was served was a glass with 1/4 of an inch of liquid. It was embarrassing and a borderline joke. When we questioned it, we were told that if we asked for additional it would be double the price. You have got to be kidding. It was vermouth not single-malt scotch.

    We had a great experience at the Pink Cabana. Note, if it’s your first time dining here, the entrance is on the back side of the hotel. The atmosphere is incredibly unique and the menu delicious and eclectic. Had the cauliflower steak even though I’m not vegetarian and it exceeded my expectations. Others in my party had mushroom tagliatelle, harissa chicken, John Dory and were also quite pleased. The highlight was an incredibly helpful host named Jacob who although was new, outshone the other servers we encountered…..filling the gaps where they fell short. Drinks were delicious and would definitely recommend the Winter Old Fashion with Apple and Thai tea ingredients making it more than a typical Old Fashion. Can’t wait to go back.

    We had diner here twice before- a couple of years ago. We remember it being innovative and delicious. We were very disappointed this time. The food was very bland- had the Frito Misto to start. It was so dry and tasteless. Had the harissa chicken and John Dory for entrees. They were both so small and so tasteless. The chicken was a small piece with one and a half fingerling potatoes (?!?) and an onion for the side. An onion??? And the John Dory was equally small, and overcooked, with a few scatterings of mushrooms on a bland mound of mashed potatoes. Not worth the visit anymore.
