State Fare Kitchen pays tribute to California’s prized harvest and ingredients, inspired by offerings from the finest purveyors in the Coachella Valley, inland Southern California and the Pacific coast. Presenting the best of California for daily breakfast, lunch and supper, as well as Sunday brunch, the restaurant provides a fresh and creative California menu, a lively chefs’ display kitchen, a chef’s table and private dining room. The restaurant is highlighted by a choice of settings from intimate to lively, including a fireplace “snug”, private dining rooms, relaxed fireside patio dining and expansive terraces overlooking gardens and pools. We will do our very best to fulfill all guest requests, but special requests for the terrace will depend on availability.

We are dining at 50% indoor occupancy, and socially distant on our patio in compliance with current State and Local County regulations.

Excellent entrees (sea bass and braised short ribs).
Service was great. Friendly and helpful suggestions.
Cocktails complex and tasty as they should be for the prices. Flatbread was very disappointing (appetizer). They should do better for what is supposedly one of their best appetizers.
Ambience was unremarkable. No real complaints just
not particularly inspired.
Pricey but not out of line with other places around. Overall a good meal and pleasant time.

Been here a few times. Great location and service. Usually the food is great, but today was average. I had a cobb salad. Well done, not outstanding. My guest had a crispy shrimp sandwich. She was not happy with it. Strange, hard black bun. Lack of flavor and just not appeasing. Other than that, still a great spot and will go again.

Sadly, we had read rave reviews about this restaurant. The actual view from the State Fare is very obscure. You really don’t see the city below, like you are lead to believe. The landscape they have there is beautiful, but we were really going for the view. The food was ok. Just ok, and certainly not worth the price. We eat in a lot of high end restaurants, and don’t mind paying for a good meal, but this was not the case. It is waaaaay overpriced for very little food. The service was excellent. We will not be going back. It was a complete disappointment, and we’re disappointed that it is not a place we would like to return to, as we had such high hopes for it. Don’t waste your time or money here, there are way too many great places to eat in the valley.

My wife and I dine out often especially since so many businesses suffered financially during the Pandemic.
This restaurant was first rate - food was excellent, the service was attentive and every staff person we encountered displayed a very high standard of customer service.
The view was breathtaking.
This was a spur of the moment visit and we were not disappointed.
We are in the Palm Springs area as part of our 55th Anniversary.
This restaurant sure added to our list of "special moments"

Great food and service. Great view if you eat outside. It's the casual, family restaurant though... Does not replace the fine dining of the steakhouse due to the ambiance. (food and service are on point) Loved the ribeye!

The ambiance service and food was amazing. However, the description in Open Table said $$ and said every entree $30 and under. Not even close to true. It was very good and would go back. Just felt this was misleading.

Disappointing evening, with rather slow service and New York Steaks that were tough and fatty. With very few in the dining room, a noisy table was seated just next to us, a distraction and annoyance. This was not a Ritz-Carlton experience.

State Fare Bar & Grill is not quite what I would have expected in a Ritz Carlton Hotel. It's very nice, but certainly more casual than I'm accustomed to. The food was very good, and the views are great. The service, while polite, was quite slow... and the restaurant was maybe 1/3 full. Overall a nice experience, but I found it surprising that the pace was not up to speed.

Ordered a salad and added chicken. The breast was dried out and obviously warmed up, not cooked to order. Waitress checked in too often, apparently trying to hustle us along faster. Burrata salad was extremely small, peaches were hard, and the quality of the burrata was only so-so. There was a fly buzzing around our table and we were constantly swatting it away. Love the setting but didn’t love the food.

The food really disappointed. Both entrees ordered were lacking in taste for the price paid. When noted to the server, only $20 was removed from the total paid. Based on the experience, I personally wouldn't recommend this place. It's too expensive to risk the food not coming out of the kitchen tasting like it should. My vegetarian pasta was $42 and tasted like it should have been $10.

Our server was Scott and couldn't have been more pleasant considering we were eating on their beautiful spacious deck. We asked to be distant as we are fresh out of Covid concern. Host who assisted us went outside before he seated us and accommodated us, he even arranged to have lights turned on in an area adjacent area to cast light on us as it was a bit dark. Servers assistants were attentive and very polite. Food offerings were nice and they even accommodated us by serving something off menu...with pleasure. Complimentary birthday cake with candle, I had to sing by myself. Great view and great walk around ground afterward for some picture taking and even better views.
And who knew? I was pleasantly surprised with complimentary parking. Please tip parking attendant. He ran in 100+ degree heat to retrieve my car. Ritz does it right, but the people make them look good.

We always love dining at State Fare with their great service (Scott was outstanding), delicious food (best burgers in town) and fabulous ambiance. It’s the perfect combination. And as local residents, we thoroughly enjoy the feeling of “being away” at home. Thanks for another wonderful meal.
