I live in the area and always wondered why everyone talks about the nest. So when I had friends visiting, I took them here. Liked the restaurant, but they sat us in an overflow room even though I made reservation a week in advance. We liked that you get soup or salad with entree. We all ordered the sanddabs and they were tasteless, the picada sauce tasted bland. Was disappointed with food
Went into bar afterward and seriously can't figure out why people line up for this place. People dance to a lone piano player, weird. Next time, I'll pass
The presentation card (Enjoy your date night) was a nice detail.
Outstanding food, warm friendly atmosphere, unique items on menu
We were lucky enough to enjoy the early bird special. It is quite a deal - skimping on nothing. We enjoyed the drinks, dinner and the service. Nice evening.
Wonderful food, music, ambiance, and attention to diners’ preference for seating. Loved it!
It was a very good experience and we enjoyed our dinner. We went early and had excellent service.
Always good, Saturday evening so really “rocking”. That’s were to go if you want action, the weekend is always noisy but during the week very subdued and elegant. Best chef in the desert!!
Outstanding in every way as always
This is our go to restaurant. Food is always excellent and we love the fun atmosphere. We always leave with a smile and feel like the owners really go the extra mile to make sure their guests are well taken care of. Highly recommend. 👍🏻
Ate outside... s beautiful California evening.. food was great... I was totally shocked.. can’t wait to go back.. we had.. veal Marsala, sanddabs
WE ARRIVED EARLY, JUST A FEW MINUTES BEFORE DINING ROOM OPENED. THEY WERE ACCOMODATING AND FRIENDLY. SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND FOOD WAS VERY TASTY. WE WERE NOT RUSHED, SO IT WAS A VERY RELAXING EXPERIENCE. WILL DEFINATELY RETURN FOR THE BAR MENU OR EARLY BIRD SPECIALS.
Expected a piano bar and therefore somewhat disappointed to find more of a hit parade type of entertainment. Also noisy atmosphere and quite pricey but food very good.
Best food and people watching in the planet!!
Fabulous dinner experience with great live music entertainment! We were greeted so graciously and service was exceptional! Loved being able to try the family’s special menu items! Loved this jewel in the desert!
Haven’t been back to The Nest in years and while in town, I took my daughter and her friend. They had fun and the owner brought over desserts complimentary.
Date night for husband and I while on out of town trip. Found it on open table app and was pleasantly rewarded. An established longtime bar and restaurant with enough yesteryear charm that has stood the test of time. Service was vigorous and friendly. Cuisine was delicious and rich with sauces. Older crowd with a vibrant bar scene. Valet available
First time there. Server Francis was sweet, food was good. Timing of food delivery over 20 minutes. it was Easter, but one never wants to want that long. We were compensated, so that definitely helped.
My chicken schnitzel was delicious and I enjoyed their Caesar salad. I was crazy about the decor!
Nest is a great place to enjoy fantastic food, energizing live music and excellent service. It is a must when you visit Coachella Valley.
Lives up to its reputation! The food was great — need to come back and spend more time listening to the music.
Excellent food and service. We’ve been there several times and will continue to go again. Great place to meet friends. Martinis are wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Excellent service, food in the dining room and fun in the bar area and also the hip hop room for the younger crowd. Great all round evening
The Nest is always great! One of our favorites. The food is great, the service is 5* and the bar after dinner is always fun!
Thank you Dodie for another wonderful evening!
Always a favorite!
Best restaurant in the Coachella Valley. Food superb. Dodi is a consummate hostess. Love her and The Nest.
Disappointed. We asked to be seated in the bar but were told the bar seating was first come first serve. Only restaurant seating was reserved. But when we arrived it was hard no to notice all the bar tables that had reserved signs posted on them. I have being lied too!
Food was great. Service was as well. 6 for 6 on meals
What a kick! First being greeted by one of the owners and chatting about the number of years we’ve been married to her buying us drinks. She was very entertaining. The veal piccata was very good. There was a large crowd the night we were there and that was a week night at 6:45 pm. We did not stay for the music but the bar area with the dance floor was filling up. As we left a rather large group of 20 something year olds was coming in. I was surprised by that as I thought the atmosphere and music called to an older crowd. But then I heard from locals that it’s a happening spot.
Great food and service
A must "do" in Palm Desert. Extensive menu, great wine list and friendly service.
Dodi's meticulous about service and food quality - she sat with us for a few minutes making sure everything was OK.
You will never go wrong with this choice! But note burst to make a reservation for dinner and dine in the dining room. Then you have access to the best party in town! No lines... just great music, dancing and people watching!! Great for groups and truly just a blast!! Thank you Dodi for such a great spot :)
Wonderful dinner and don’t miss the music!!! Played all our favorite tunes!!! Rock on!! Love it!!!!
Great service excellent food fun ambiance quite noisy so not great for a romantic dinner but lots of fun to go with friends!
Had dinner with 7 friends. Our table was ready when we arrived. Group arrived staggered so we were a little unorganized. Our server was very nice but they were obviously busy. Had to ask for a few things more than once.
The Dodi & Kevin salad is delicious. Everyone enjoyed their meal and after a little dancing in the bar, all left happy!
Wonderful dinner and great service! Plus we got our favorite booth! The Nest never disappoints and it’s one of our favorite dining places!
was told it was one of THE places to go while in Palm Desert. Enjoyed the dinner. The hostess had to move us because someone was coming in that needed to sit where they sat us and she was going to comp our wine. She didn't, but other than that, we had a nice dinner.
Good food . Nice people. And on Monday wine is 30% off. Can’t beat that!
We have enjoyed The Nest many times and will return many more I'm sure. No disappointments.
Excellent food at reasonable prices. The staff was very accommodating. There’s something on the menu for everyone.
Bar music was way, way too loud. It actually hurt our ears. Food was good but nothing to exclaim over - other than the date and bacon appetizer (terrific)
