Great service and attention. One meal was great (short ribs) but the surf and turf wasn’t great. Scallops (2) and asparagus were excellent, but steak and potatoes were just OK. Shrimp cocktail is braised in lime juice so not your standard method. Excellent service though. They noticed we didn’t like it and took it off our bill. Thursday show was great fun.

I booked dinner with a show and was seated at a table in the dining area furthest from the live performance. My date and I had to watch the singer on a monitor. Very disappointing, especially since i have had great experiences previously.

The Purple Room is the place to show out of town guests a bit of the old Palm Springs and enjoy jazz and to have bourbon in Frank's Bourbon Bar. Service was very good although a bit slow as the evening went on. We enjoyed the pork, scallops, sheperd's pie and 3 desserts!

The food was even better than I remembered. The ambiance was truly of the era.
Rose was at her finest ,singing and entertaining the crowd with her wit and charm.
It is always a special night when we get a night out at the Purple Room.

The service was great but the food was variable. While some had an excellent dish on Lasagna, my stuffed chicken was horribly dry! Definitely not worth the money..... I shall not return.

This was a truly great experience . The entertainment is first class and the food is even good. It is an experience not to be missed if you are over 60 and can relate to the ambiance and music. It’s real noisy and busy. We had really good professional service and the food is excellent. It probably would have been ok if the food hadn’t been good, but it was. We will go every time we are in Palm Springs.

What a fun night! We were there when Rose was performing. She and her band mates put on a great show. The service was so friendly, from the host to our server Chris. We had front row seats so it was a bit louder than elsewhere in the room. The food was ok but the entertainment and cocktails were the stars. Would definitely recommend!

We have been to The Purple Room many times since moving to the desert and love it. This time, we were especially pleased to see not one, but two, vegan entrees on the menu. They were both excellent. The entertainment, as always, was first class, and the ambiance cannot be beat. We are big fans of The Purple Room and hope to return soon on a Friday or Sunday for "The Judy Show."

Unfortunate I have to write this review as I really don't do this unless I am really upset. I was out for a birthday dinner and the waitress came to the table twice. Dropped off drinks and a check. She walked right past our table never asked how our food was, any additional drinks, nothing. She saw dirty salad dish and soup dish on the corner of our table while we were eating our main course and walked on by. Guess because we were a party of two vs. the high dollar tables of 4 or more that were drinking. Great singer and the club itself had a nice vibe. Food was ok but steak was a bit cold. Maybe Mondays aren't a good day to eat there.

I had a wonderful dinner and really enjoyed the entertainment.
Even though it has a been a while since we attended, I have great memories to last till the next time we can attend.

Michael Holmes was a great server, meeting all of our needs. She went out of her way to make sure my gluten free needs were met.

Thank you for a wonderful evening.

The Purple Room is an experience despite mediocre food. You're in an intimate area with a Jazz trio, and an accomplished singer (Rose was there on our night). The food was mediocre at best: overcooked beef tenderloin served with cold potatoes; my wife had scallops -also cold. Wines by the glass are reasonable in price and selection. They have an incredible bourbon selection, including flights. I didn't go for the bourbon this time, but that would be a reason to return.

The Purple Room is the place to go to experience the forgotten era of the dinner/night club. In the past several years, we have become Sharon Sills fans and visit the venue 3-4 times during our stay. My wife requires a gluten free diet. This appeared on our Open table profile. When we arrived, the hostess identified that fact. After seating us, she went over the menu with my wife identifying the gluten free items available (there were many). This was greatly appreciated. It made our visit that much more enjoyable.

Always love coming to The Purple Room. Michael Holmes is such a charming host. Brought our friends from Saskatchewan for the easy listening music and fantastic food. Mojitos were excellent too. We can’t wait to come back. 😊
