The setting was stunning, service excellent, however the food was unremarkable. I ordered sea bass for $42. It was about the size of a deck of cards with 3 pieces of fried zucchini flower and a teaspoon of some sort of hummus thing, no greens, no bueno. My date had eggplant that tasted like shoe leather.

Third or fourth time there. This time, by far, the most ridiculously small portions and expensive. I don't mind expensive if the food is good.....but we spend a small fortune and left hungry. Won't be going back.

We loved the ambiance and the food, unfortunately the service was bad! Our waiter seemed rushed and unattentive, and unfortunately it was not a good experience service wise. More training of the waiters is needed.

We've eaten here before and the food has been great both times. However, the ownership cut back the staff to TWO people who are trying to run the restaurant and the front desk of the hotel. Truly horrible service experience. I really felt bad for the two guys. One couple finally got up and left after just throwing some money on the table. Drinks were coming after portions of the meal, we had to go find someone to get our check, then they couldn't run a split bill, then we had to go track down where our credit cards were, and then they told us they couldn't provide a receipt of any kind. The ownership of this establishment owes everyone who ate there that night a redo. Very sad because this is a beautiful spot for dinner.

The service was good, but it was very dark. It was hard to read the menu and see the food on the plate.
It was over 100’, but the misters went on & off, so one moment it was comfortable, the next too hot.
The food was good, but very small portions for a high price.

Food was not as good as the last time I went there. I got the duck confit ravioli. The pasta was thick and hard, not a melt in your mouth pasta. Also, the watermelon salad was not good either. The service and ambiance was great.

This was my second time eating here.
The service is absolutely wonderful. Thank you David for being such as tentative waiter. Even though there's a new chef, I absolutely loved the new menu and food. This is a gourmet experience not to miss. I don't know of any other place in the area that has food prepared like this.

The atmosphere was lovely. The staff was friendly, but it took 20 minutes to get a drink at the bar. Everyone who was STAYING at the hotel that sat at the bar AFTER us were served drinks first, even though ours had been ordered already. We we got them they were delicious (as were the appetizers wer ordered) and the servers were really sweet. Unfortunately, my friend I was having dinner with wanted to leave by the time we got our table for dinner, because it was too hot out for her.... it was a bummer for me and the menu looked amazing!

Arranged to meet friends for a drink before dinner but restaurant has no bar unless your a hotel guest

The misters were everywhere and caused unnecessary high humidity , we left wet and not from spilled water !!

Starters were overpriced and one bite and they were gonec

Ravioli was dreadful

Grouper fish was excellent

Don’t think will be going back anytime soon

I really enjoyed the beauty of the restaurant. Service was slow and it wasn't busy. It didn't bother me because I was relaxed but the other people at my table were annoyed. It's a stunning place, I would go again.

Sorry to say I put off trying this place til restaurant week. We're locals that happen to own a market & cafe in Palm Springs. Both my husband's Pork chop & my poulet houssein (fancy French word for CHICKEN!) were overcooked. The flavors were middle ground but I refused to send my food back leaving my husband to eat alone while they made the other only selection on the Restaurant week menu. GM said nothing though they DID take of $25 (1/2 the cost of my plate) & bought my 1st cocktail (more than generous & totally unexpected). Our server was gracious & I genuinely offered that the Chef or perhaps Cook be informed.

What a shame - had high hopes and could have been nice.
Starters came before we had even got drinks - and mussels were not fresh at all. They turned my partners stomach. Leading me to think that it’s not made to order.
Main course was extremely bland, didn’t bother with dessert. For over $200 for dinner it was appalling.

Terrible Terrible. I visited there 4 weeks ago entertaining clients for their birthday and it was the worst experience. We maintained our cool but literally every table around us was ranting and raving about how terrible the restaurant was. It was unbelievable. I called the next day to vent my frustration and the manager was very nice and asked to me to please come back and he would take care of everything and assured me the night I visited was highly unusual and knew of all the chaos. So last weekend, 4/27/19 I visited and let the restaurant know that manager Heron asked me to come back and that I would be taken care of. Heron, the manager, was there that night and he never came over to greet us or say "thanks for returning". To be fair he sent over 2x glasses of champagne but when the bill came only discounted $30.00. I spent $600 on my 1st visit and he asked ME to come back and this was the best he could do. Overall, I didnt say a word, he is a Terrible manager and does not cater to his customer and was not worth my energy to complain. It was a Saturday night and literally NO customer...Do not visit this place over priced, fair food and terrrible customer service by the manager...I blame him 100%
