We had a very nice dinner on the patio, we were pleasantly surprised about how accommodating it was with all the fans blowing and misters all around us keeping us cool. We started off with Bacon & Date skewers which were to die for and then I had the Beet salad which was a nice and refreshing summer night dinner. Can't wait to come back!

We were delighted the Nest has opened the patio to diners in spite of the heat. Everyone seemed so happy we were there and were very accommodating as one of our group kept requesting more and more fans and the effort to please her was outstanding

My wife and I visited here last year and were blown away. Sooooo good! We came back last week, but they only had outdoor seating because of the pandemic. It was a bit rough sitting outside since it was 108 degrees in Palm Springs, but the food was still awesome. I really hope this place survives the closures due to Covid because the people that work there (as well as the owner) are super nice and welcoming. Please support this establishment and stop by for dinner.

We had a lovely dinner on Father’s Day at The Nest. It has been quite a while since we’ve been there because of COVID-19 closures. They’ve Redone some of the inside of the restaurant and bar and everything looks beautiful. The food and service were outstanding! Dodo and Kevin have done a great job!

Excellent in every way.
Our first meal out in two months. All the necessary protocols for COVID were in place. Reception and wait staff were gracious and efficient. The food was amazing and my husband was able to order an item that wasn’t on the menu, frog legs, and the chef produced them.
A truly wonderful evening.

I love the Nest! Dodi runs this place perfectly!
The food is great and there is a great mix of people of all ages attracted to the fun experience of the Nest.
I like simple caesar salad and Dodi's pasta. My party ate heavier fare. It was all good. Great cocktails too.

It is sad that people come to a beautifully appointed and lovely fine dining restaurant dressed in sloppy short shorts and shirts hanging out. It’s just disrespectful to all of those that dress presentably. Another sign of the careless times we are living through!

Wonderful! We have been ordering since They open back up for takeout. But coming in for a meal seeing the staff seeing the owner was just absolutely fantastic. We both had the veal piccata and it was excellent. Thanks so much for reopening.

It was wonderful to be able to celebrate our anniversary in one of our FAVORITE places. They took our temperature as we entered, All staff wore masks and gloves but we could remove our masks once seated. The food was delicious and we enjoyed a most memorable evening.
