We have had both dinner and Sunday luncheon and really enjoyed them both. Win a little pricey for dinner. All in all a good value. Booths are a little tight so the long table is a great option. We will be back.

Truly and exceptional experience. From the moment we entered the staff took wonderful care of us. We were seated while being told a brief history of the building, and the gentleman was kind enough to answer all of our questions. Our waiter gave us her o-unions on certain apps and entrees, and she was spot on with everything. smash burger, pork chop, octapus, duck fat fries, duck three ways, tomato tartinne, vanilla cardamom ice cream and stone fruit tart - it was all wonderful!

Took waitress 9 minutes to show up when the kitchen was closing in 15 minutes and we’d been reminded three times by text, by the host and the waitstaff. So we had six minutes to look at the menu and order everything including dessert. Food was average at best. Reuben sandwich bread was burnt black. But the spaces both indoors and the courtyard are excellent — maybe that’s why locals are so taken by it?

A Sunday evening dinner. Chef was off on this day. Small plates were the best part of the meal. Prep and presentation was not given much consideration. Entrees were lack luster. Desert had intriguing flavors, but again lacked any thought with regard to presentation; flourless chocolate cake was chewy much like eating a protein bar. Overall — adequate, however pricey when considering the quality and presentation of food.

My mom and I went here for dinner on our Palm Springs vacation. The wait staff was amazing. Took the time to explain the menu and offered suggestions. I ordered a very yummy drink by just letting them know what taste I like and the bar tender whipped something up. That was impressive. The food was so so good! You feel like your dining in a different country. I had the duck study, and it came with the most delicious sauces. Love the industrial look of the restaurant well. Very cool experience!

Beautiful, sleek modern interior space -- pairs perfectly with the mid-century vibe of Palm Springs. Impeccable lighting and ambiance, with a beautiful bar. The staff is also beautiful, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu was creative and delicious. Of note, the wagyu carpaccio was so heavenly -- it was melting like butter in our mouths -- like nothing we've ever experienced. The fish special was not only pleasing to the eyes, but by far was the most tastiest fish dish we've had in a long time. Between the turmeric and walnut spice spread, along with the arugula that was gently dressed and stuffed into the stunning fish... we can go on. It was breathtaking and beyond delicious. Overall a wonderful meal, beautiful ambiance, lovely wait staff and fantastic date night.

Hadn't been back to Workshop in awhile, so decided to give it a spin given the summer dinner options are a little more limited right now. Menu is creative; more focused on small plates and appetizers to be shared by the table. All the dishes we tried we very good, but all the servings are on the small side. Prices are pretty steep, especially the $24 burger that doesn't come with any sides. Adding fries takes it to over $30 for a burger/fries--even in a high-end restaurant, that's pretty steep, and the burger was just okay. Inside seating is interesting, but you feel like you are in a church with the high steeped ceilings and small windows at the very top. It is still a nice alternative for high-end dining in P.S. Will likely be back again...

Food is great although the portions have gotten much smaller since my last visit. Definitely a hot spot and a fun vibe but don't expect to leave full unless you're ready to pay a premium. I had the black cod, my girlfriends ordered the gazpacho special, vegetable plate, duck fries, and a salad and the flavors were delicious, we were all pleased. Dessert was an almond cake and it was divine. Drinks were stellar, too. Some of the staff were rude at first, which threw me off especially since we were a group of five women with reservations, and there were several open tables. The host was spectacular from the jump and when our waiter finally appeared, he was wonderful. Having visited once before I talked this place up (perhaps a bit too much) and our overall experience was just ok. Maybe this restaurant is better for date night or a light dinner w/heavy drinks... not exactly where you should go if you're starving or looking for a great value.
