Spectacular stripped down modern interior in this 1920’s building sets the ambiance for this amazing dining experience. Excellent waiter explains the complex menu beautifully and takes care of you for the entire dinner never feeling rushed. Even with a wonderful outdoor seating area the best experience is indoors in the Workshop.
Underperformance with overblown pretentious menu. Service was fine. Wine was overpriced. Portions (not that this is an issue for me) were very small. Underwhelming overall aside from ambiance.
The service was excellent. Honestly I felt like the value was very poor this time and I’ve dined here before. We started with the Farm Greens ($16), which only had croutons, radishes and carrots in it, which is hardly worth that price. We also had the cauliflower soup, but that was excellent. The size of the duck breast and scallop portions were hardly worth what they were priced at ($34 & $38). Then when we left the hostess was SO RUDE to me. She told me the exit was to the left, which I know it is, but I wanted to grab some of their beautiful matches. She then snapped at me and said she’s had to run upstairs and grab some more. Talk about an overall bad experience.
Had an awesome time! The Host Ashley was very nice and helped us to our every need. Andy are server was also very nice and answered every question we had.
Great food and service!
Excellent bartender and the food was outstanding.
Wonderful ambiance and excellent service. $$
The food was very good, but the wine list was not that extensive. The service was slow - not the servers themselves - it was the kitchen that was slow. It took 45 minutes to get our food. Also, the hostess was very frustrating and not accommodating. We arrived at 7:15 pm for an 8:00 pm reservation of three at one on the 14 or so booths inside. We recognized that we were very early and said if they could seat us earlier that would be great, and we said we would wait in the bar. We, nonetheless, end having to wait in the bar until 8:15 pm. At the time we arrived at 7:15 pm, there were 7 open booths. Incredibly, three of those booths remained open until around 8:15 pm, and believe it or not, we were seated at one of three booths that had remained open for nearly an hour. After 45 minutes of waiting, I asked the hostess why were not able to take one of the open tables that had remained vacant. She told me because our reservation was not until 8:00 pm. At 8:15 pm, after now waiting an hour and watching 2-3 of the same vacant tables for that full hour, I asked to speak to a manager. She then said she would be seating us then. It was very frustrating. Also, of the open four booths that were seated while we waited, at least one of those was a walk-in customer - not someone who had a reservation like we did.
Incredible food, unbelievable atmosphere - probably one of my top 5 restaurants we’ve eaten at in the whole world. And we travel a lot!
AMAZING FOOD AS USUAL , GREAT SERVIE , PATIO IS AMAZING THANK YOU WORKSHOP
We loved it. Our only disappointment, if you could call it that, was that it was our last night in Palm Springs and we couldn't eat there again this trip.
It was a loud space, I couldn't hear any of my friends all night plus the tables felt sticky. My shaved brussel sprout salad had tasteless strawberries and no dressing. For a place that states it uses in season produce , the produce was tasteless and bland.
Not cheap but fantastic food. Our waiter, Jeff was fun and attentive. More expensive then we usually go but we’ll worth it.
Creative seasonal American inspired dishes. Loved mixing and matching small and large plates. Terrific cocktails.
We had a 7:30 reservation for 3. Waited an hour till they finally sat us outside in the courtyard. A group of very drunk bachelorette girls were hovering around our table, we presumed waiting for a table. The prices are way to high for the bar atmosphere. Finally they left obviously never waiting for a table, just hanging out. The bathroom looks like a state park bathroom, really with such thought put into the restaurant, you crinch when walking into the bathroom, and it was filthy, paper towels everywhere, cigarettes on counter, literally disgusting.
And our dinner was $300.00 for 3 people, with only 1 drinking( 2 glasses of wine)
Not worth the $. This place would never exist in Chicago!
Wonderful visit during a getaway. Definitely book a table here in advance . It was our best meal while visiting!
The setting is lovely and the food is fabulous. This is not an inexpensive place to dine, but if you are looking for a special experience, this is it
Sadly, I was disappointed in the food. The dishes were bland and lacked any sort of creative flavor. The only notable item we ordered was the romanesco. Luckily, the cocktails were great, so we enjoyed those. The atmosphere was fun, but also very loud. We sat at the large center communal table, and I had to speak uncomfortably loud to reach my friend across the table from me. Definitely not the place to visit if you'd like to have an intimate conversation over excellent food.
Horrible experience. Arrived for 7:00 pm reservation and promptly ordered wine, appetizers, and main courses. The wine and sparkling water came immediately. We then waited 30 minutes for our salad. By 8:15, nothing else had been served. We told the waiter and the manager that we were leaving. They apologized but provided no explanations nor did they offer to discount our bill. So, after an hour and fifteen minutes and $115, we left with the remains of bottle of sparkling water and a partial bottle of over-priced wine. Amateur hour!
Fabulous . Great food and ambience. Our waiter was awesome. Had a great evening.
Delicious dinner in a trendy restaurant, service was good but be prepared to wait a bit. Great bar scene. Nice architecture.
Very, very good!
Super nice ambiance and cool 1927!building
Wonderful meal. Great ambiance’s
Came here since highly rated for Palm Springs. Find it to be over rated. Pork chops were dry. They do not serve any Coke or Pepsi products but had only Mexican style soft drinks so not great if not alcohol drinkers.
Loved Workshop! We sat at the bar and had an awesome meal. Loved the atmosphere, very lively. It was fun watching the bartenders make craft cocktails. Food was superb!! Will be back!!!
Our server was very friendly. The service however was slow. It wasn't that it was bad, it was just that I had better experiences elsewhere. It was also on the expensive side for what it was.
The space is beautiful. We sat inside but I would also love to eat outside sometime. I might go back back not for a while. One person's opinion though. You may think it's great!
The lobster pizza was so good!
I have gone to the restaurant since its opening and it continues to be one of the best restaurants I have eaten in. This visit was not exception. If you're going, ask for Diego. He proved to be one of the best waiters we have encountered in many, many year. Great service, great smile and very knowledgeable!! You won't be disappointed with this restaurant or Diego.
Delicious food, great service and a community table with fun people to get to know. This was a very special night out in Palm Springs.
The food was tasty, but seriously - the portion size wouldn't have satisfied a humming bird (and no, this review isn't coming from some guy who lives at a buffet). If you are going to drop $$ at this place, do yourself a favor and go have dinner before arriving at Workshop. As an example, the two scoops of ice cream for dessert were obtained with a tiny melon ball scooper. I get the "We are foodies, blah, blah, blah..." - but holy crap, I left there needing....dinner.
Came here for Sunday brunch. Service wasn’t over the top but friendly enough. Food was delicious. We ate outside in the courtyard. Cute spot for a girly date or a romantic brunch for 2.
The server was just way too informative. It was overwhelming to have someone recite the entire menu without even having a drink on the table yet. If a menu is presented, how about just let the customer go over it and ask questions as needed.
The ambiance and food quality was very good. Great service, we were seated at the commune table, nobody was seating right next to us so we didn’t feel squeezed in by other people. So far, one of our favourite restaurants in PS, we’ll come back for sure.
Very cool looking restaurant. Food was good. Enjoyable evening.
Amazing space. Great food and fantastic wine! Michael was a fantastic host.
Place is too noisy ...even in a booth. Brussels sprout salad was too vinegary. Gagged on it. Bun could not support our burger. Fell apart. Had better experience x2 before.
Food seemed expensive for what you got. Cocktails were interesting and delicious, small plates were creative and great value, entrees fell short...just not enough of what was described on the menu made it onto the plate.
Loved the cauliflower /cheese. Fell short on the chicken.
Great food and service ❤️
