The food combinations sounded fascinating and tasted wonderful. Even the radishes in the salad were especially tasty. The only disappointment was no chocolate desserts.

Wonderful room wonderful service. I think some of the dishes are a bit overpriced, the risotto needed more flavor and could’ve been cooked a little bit better but it was quite good. I think the prices are a tad high but overall quite a fabulous place

Disappointing, service was okay, but a bit slow for a Tuesday night. Ordered the shaved Brussels which had a bunch of substitute ingredients, not a great dish. Had a margherita pizza which was probably one of the worst things I've ever eaten in a restaurant. It tasted like it was prepped in advance and frozen, did not have a fresh taste. A first and last experience at this place, would not recommend. Prices do not reflect food quality.

Haven’t been here in some time and won’t be back anytime soon. Two cocktails, one glass of wine, one small plate we shared and two dinner plates of unexceptional food for $146. These people are krayzee. Not again. If this place wants to pander to tourists, let it. This local ain’t hittin’ it again.

Nice modern space. Unfortunately, 30 minute delay for a 9PM reservation. Service otherwise attentive and friendly.


Food somewhat disappointing. Cauliflower steak very good, but fired duck egg cold on duck study #4, and wagyu carpaccio somewhat bland. Black cod texture insufficiently smooth/velvety, and more "fishy" taste than typical. Desserts average. Wine list limited for a higher end eatery.

Less impressive than I would have thought for a restaurant advertised as among Palm Springs' best.

Can't say enough about our experience at this restaurant. Food was fantastic. We had a party of 4, so we split the Ribeye for 2 and the Bass for 2, both were scrumptious. Sides and salads were all perfectly cooked and very tasty. Service was outstanding, attentive to our needs, and spot on. I can't wait to eat here again the next time I'm in Palm Springs!

Everything was great though I have a quibble: The “prime rib with cipollini onions came with just 2 onions (so, technically, the use of the plural was correct, but still). I’d have expected more from a very pricey main course.

And, please bring back the Chicken Diavolo.

We went for Sunday brunch and - everything was amazing! We all enjoyed our food (croissant breakfast sandwich, chicken and waffles, crab benedict and lobster burrito) and coffees, our waitress was wonderful and told us we should try dinner but to definitely make a reservation (we made one for brunch too). You can side inside or outside on their courtyard patio - we sat inside but I’d love to sit outside if we are able to go back. We’ve heard mixed reviews, and yes, it is pricier, but we felt it was definitely worth it! We all stepped out of our normal breakfast ‘boxes’ and were all extremely happy with our meals!

We've come to the conclusion that Workshop is the most special place for dinner in Palm Springs. It feels like a special event, with great quality food in a beautiful setting with a lively array of guests who've also come there for a special night. Is it a little pricier than other nice places in PS? Yes. But well worth it because the quality of the dining experience is so exceptionally wonderful!

The Workshop was an outstanding restaurant. It's not the easiest restaurant to find but once you do, it's worth the effort! The space is ultra modern and funky. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. We ordered our dishes and shared it family style and it was a great way to taste all the amazing variety of food. Would highly recommend this restaurant to discerning customers and people looking for something unique and memorable. We will definitely be returning here on our next trip to Palm Springs.

Not my favorite. The waitress was very rude and rush this through our meal. $150 for a rushed dinner. The food was excellent but the salad was served on a chipped plate. It was a real turn off.

Been here a ton of times and generally always love it. In fact, it's the only place I make reservations for every time we come to PS (once every couple of months). This time really changed my mind though. They were unable to accommodate any special (very reasonable) requests for my partner's birthday. They were out of romaine lettuce for the caesar we ordered, completely forgot one of our sides, and the steak was very undercooked. Last time we were there they also said that they would make a note of our favorite waiter so we could sit in his section next time we came in - no mention of that. To be fair, his section may have been full. Unfortunately, wasn't worth the +$200 this time.

Restaurant made really good effort to get us seats outside in courtyard. Very small portions for prices. Actually charged us for ice tea refills, a nickel/dime situation. But biggest pitfall, dismissive and unhappy waiter. He ruined our dinner. Management should send him back to courtesy/wait school. Generally nice ambiance.
