Lovely evening with excellent food and service. Highlights were scallops and flourless chocolate cake - superb!
Arriving for reservation at 5.45 there were many open tables available when we arrived and when we left but told they were reserved and all groups of 2 relegated to communal table with backless chairs.

Very energetic and a young crowd for PS, we really enjoyed it. We had our best meal of the week, although it is pricey. The $25 corkage is very fair and we brought along a nice bottle. Service we outstanding and Workshop has a great vibe.

I'd recommend an outdoor seating, the community table, but not the booth. there's a concrete divider underneath the booth table that it's very uncomfortable to be seated in there and try to cross one's legs. the seating space is narrow with the hard surface on the back (again in the booth still), that we really couldn't enjoy our food while seated in that space.

I wouldn't recommend Workshop Kitchen based on it's limited menu choices, ridiculous pricing for incredibly small portions, ambiance was nice but nothing special and honestly the food I ordered wasn't that great. We sat at a community table, which was fine but the seating was on stools with no back support, which was not comfortable. Definitely overrated.

This restaurant is hip and fun with great food and excellent service. I sat outside as the option was at a shared table and I was with my wife and wanted alone time. The chairs were cheap and outside is a corridor. They pull it off though as hip but if you prefer elegant this might not be your place. I had the hanger steak and it was incredible. Enjoy!!

We were sadly disappointed. Start with the good-
Atmosphere is super cool.
Craft cocktails were excellent.
Scallops were fresh and good.
Now for the not so good-
Willing to pay the $28 for a burger in hopes of something special. Was not.. Ordered med rare was cold in the middle.. Bun rather dry.
Pork chop, good flavor but ordered med rare, it was well.
Service lacking. When waiter was told over cooked and other under cooked he just said "oh"...
We are happy to pay big prices for excellent food and service but was not the case..
I would prob give it another chance however the other 4 with us said NO!

This has been one of our favourite spots to celebrate special occasions and birthdays. We usually sit inside and in the past have had a stellar experience.....not this last time. Do your self a favour and do not order the Market Vegetable entree for $34. I wish I had taken a photo. There were perhaps 8 pieces of food (carrots, squash). Certainly no value for the cost with this dish. I also know that mistakes do happen, but our server then poured the wrong the wine in a glass. ½ of us were drinking a Pinot and the other ½ a Rose. He poured the Rose into the Pinot. He brought a fresh glass of Pinot for our friend but then did nothing for those of us who would have liked to finish the Rose.

On average we spend over $100/person and sadly we won't be back.

Had a 7:30 reservation for 4 and arrived at 7:25 - we were advised that there would be a short wait while our table was prepared & we were directed to the bar to wait - 20 minutes later, we asked for an update and were told that the people occupying the table reserved for us had paid their bill but were still chatting - we were advised that the restaurant “hoped” to have us seated “soon” - 5 minutes later, the manager sought us out and apologized for the delay (which we appreciated) and offered us two complimentary small plates which were to be delivered to our table once we were seated - 10 minutes later, the people occupying the table reserved for us finally departed, the table was set up and we were finally seated - 35 minutes after our scheduled reservation - although we appreciated the complimentary small plates from the manager, a bottle of wine or a round of cocktails would have been a more appropriate gesture after an overly long wait

Best meal we had in Palm Springs while attending a meeting there for 4 nights.
Loved the whole scene, the attractive outside area, plenty of heaters, great service.
Would highly recommend the outdoor seating. Our reservation was for inside which was much too noisy.
They were happy to accommodate our preference.

We had an awesome evening! Our server (young polish woman- can’t remember her name ) made our visit spectacular. She knew the drink menu, the food menu, pairings, and just a real lively woman to begin with. Friendly knowledgeable and knew when to end the conversation with us. A real treat. The food was delicious as well.

Some of the worst service I’ve encountered in a long time. Perhaps they need more help to keep customers happy. Just getting a beverage refill was very difficult. The food was good but not exceptional for the price. The ambiance was mediocre, glad we sat outside as inside was all hard surfaces & quite noisy. We had a gift card receipt as our children gave it to us for Christmas & were told with the receipt & our name the actual card was held in their file. This took 15 minutes to clear up and a phone call to our son who spoke with them. It was very uncomfortable. The only reason we will return is we still have a large balance on our gift card. Perhaps they will do better next time & improve their service. Others around us were experiencing the same lack of service.

The food here was excellent. I had the flank steak with potatoes and vegetables. Great comfort dish. I have found that many great restaurants cannot match the dessert quality with the meal, but not at this place. I had the apple tart & my son had the pistachio cake which were both amazingly good. Great restaurant on all levels. Every dish we had was tremendously tasty.

Interesting place with good food and decent service. The value proposition is not for those on a budget. Our group of 3 didn’t eat or drink a lot and we walked out with close to a $300 tab.
