Stick to dinners! After trying to cancel and learning about their cancellation policy I rounded up the sleepy troops and there we went. Place had plenty of available tables but service was not great nor was the food. We’ve had duplicate orders and it was so strange to have to ask them to make sure all that was supposed to be on the plate made it (missing the cinnamon whip in one of the pancake orders and then the tomato on of the bacon’s). Also the waffles were soggy but the fried chicken was delicious. t’s a pity since we’ve had multiple dinners there and we’ve always had a pleasant time.

Not a bad bite or sip. It started with tasty craft cocktails (Bees Knees was wonderful with the perfect balance of fresh tartness) and continued through to the last dessert bite. A flawless meal. Even though the weather was perfect for outdoor seating for dinner, we chose a booth on the inside. Great ambiance and appreciated the architectural details. Good lighting, professional and attentive staff.

Seating outside on a lovely desert evening great, waitstaff professional and engaging, food presentation mediocre in execution Scallop was good although the sear was poor the flavor was there, risotto average, poor presentation. Duck fat fries soggy, limp. Burger meh......the cocktails were awesome although priced at $14-15 a little high in combination with a mediocre meal. We all three had two cocktails each-well balanced and nuanced. The interior restaurant has communal tables and a few booths. This is a contemporary stark design....seen in LA, Barcelona, and Germany which I found aesthetically pleasing although we opted for outdoor dining . I wished the food lived up to the design. The waitstaff excellent.

Of all the many restaurants we've eaten at in Palm Springs we have finally found one that really stands out. The food we had was creative, flavorful and beautifully presented. We sat at the long communal table and our neighbors were friendly and open about their food, which they raved about. The decor of the restaurant is striking. The booths are private dining spaces. The communal table is great for people dining casually who want the feel of others enjoying food & wine. The outdoor dining is in a lovely setting, too. The bar is great - interesting cocktails and a good wine list. This was an outstanding experience in every way, including the service, which was attentive and professional. We will keep looking but so far, this is the only restaurant in Palm Springs I would recommend to 'foodies'.

The food was good, but the portions were miniscule. I don't have a huge appetite, and I appreciate quality over quantity, but I spent $64 on food alone (no drinks) and left hungry.

I feel the need to let the management know what an utter disappointment it is to be greeted at your host stand with sustain. Your hostess on 4/9/18 was absolutely offensive in her greeting, reservation requesting and seating us. I find it to be an honor and a privilege to live in Palm Springs and as a guest in any establishment am respectful of every service industry person I come across. I too am in the service industry and was appalled that my wonderful server had to make up for the host’s terrible behavior. Nothing can ruin a potentially wonderful meal like being treated poorly by someone whose job it is to make you feel welcome.

We had a great booth as promised. One in our group had the frittata which was dry. I had the crab Benedict. The crab was good, but the Hollandaise sauce was practically non existent and had little flavor. There was little evidence of the grilled escarole. The potatoes that came with entrees were tasteless and uninteresting.

Service was poor. She never ch caked back to see if we needed anything. We had to ask for more water and coffee. The waitress said she couldn’t find the coffee pot so she took our cups away and refilled them. .

Despite having received a call from the restaurant to confirm the reservation, when we arrived they seemed to have no record of it. However, they were very accommodating and gave us a booth inside as the woman who called me had promised.

Went for Easter since they are only open on Sunday's for brunch. It was our first time and we loved it. The interior is awesome. We did ask for a booth when making reservations and got it. Food was unique and yummy. We will definitely go back for dinner now. I had the lobster burrito, my husband had the fried chicken and waffles, and my mom had the burger. We were all VERY happy. Duck fat fried fries were awesome too. Can't wait to go back!

Portion sizes as aspected for 4 dollar sign restaurant. (Note: This is not a "gastro-pub"). Food was prepared well, and presentation was good. Signature cocktails were very good. Delicious steak and risotto. We have had much better mussels though. The ambiance was interesting. Rustic Minimalism. Outside Court yard was more inviting in my mind then inside booths. The long, farm-house cement table would be good for large parties and gatherings, not a date. Yes, depending on the circumstance, I would recommend this place but be prepared to spend a bundle.

Originally we stumbled across kitchen bar & workshop for breakfast after not getting a table at a a popular establishment down the street. We were delighted at what we found (better than said establishment!).
The brunch was delicious, the tiny potatoes were a favourite and the waffles were yummy, fab decor and service. We returned for a evening meal in the same week and we're not disappointed.
Very contemporary decor and nice booths with room for 4 people. The outdoor patio area looked nice too!

Gorgeous patio setting but our table was in more of an alley with uncomfortable metal chairs. Cocktails excellent, well made. Duck fries were good but half the $10 order was literally little leftover bits and pieces. Food was good, inventive but a stretch for the price and portion size. Service was ok, knowledgeable but why do they always recommend the three most expensive entrees as everyone’s favorite ‘must haves’? Sort of shallow, obvious. Wanted to like it more. Stick to their bar next door- Truss & Twine is my advice.

Came for the food and was disappointed. More than half of the items on the menu contained honey as an ingredient -- why? Presentation was on dark plates in a dark room -- had to eat by feel. Food was overly stylized, with garnishes and accompaniments not well integrated with the main item. Specifically, the bacon accompaniment to the pork chop looked like a blob of cat food; not very appetizing, and not integrated into the dish.

food was good but felt it was over priced ~ $16 for a bowl of shaved Brussel sprouts and $16 for romanesco and $7 for bread ~ $39 so seems a little bit high for appetizers? was our anniversary and barely a mention or a dessert. maybe i am not used to California pricing. on a good note our wait staff was excellent she made the meal and was great talking to her

We were a group of seven and were seated in a semi-private room which worked beautifully for us. Conversation could flow around the table well. We could hear one another easily. The room is open to the rest of the restaurant so you’re still a part of the ambiance but not impacted by the noise. Wine selections bythe glass were delicious. The duck confit, divers scallops and chicken entrees all got rave reviews from our group. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others and will dine here again.

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.

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.
