Dinner was cold! Mentioned to manager but no action taken. Prime rib- cold. Scallops - cold. Overpriced for al la carte.

Our party of six dined here for Valentine's Day. What a wonderful way to experience the old Hollywood/Palm Springs scene. The food and ambiance are top notch. Michael Holmes and Kate Campbell provided excellent entertainment. We will definitely dine here again.

The Purple Room is a fantastic and unique experience featuring good food and terrific live music. We went on a Tuesday night and found it to have a very lively atmosphere with excellent service. Our only criticism is the difficulty of parking so take an uber...

 (Milwaukee)·Dined on February 9, 2018

Had a reservation for Friday night. Our first time, and thought it would be a fun place for a weekend night. Seated right away at 7:30, and service was attentive and perceptive to fact we didn’t want a rushed dinner. The jazz group playing was good, not great, but within a half hour the place had cleared out, and the ambiance sort of deflated. The food was pretty average at best; scallops nothing special and chicken dish was dry. Again, our server was great, but we don’t understand all the glowing, over-the-top reviews.

A great throwback to the 60's. Food is better than one would expect given it is a nostalgia venue and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back with others.

Enjoyed our experience at the PUrple room. The service and food was very good. The entertainment was good. A little loud though. Conversation was hard to speak over the music. Between sets the background music was a little too loud.

So glad we tried The Purple Room. It is wonderful. A real old school supper club. We were there for dinner on Christmas Evening. The 3 course dinner had lots of choices and everything we ordered was excellent. The jazz combo played great music that was perfect with dinner.
Don’t let the somewhat unappealing outside of the building scare you away. It’s a great place with a wonderful staff that makes sure you have an enjoyable evening. Can’t wait to return and see one of their shows.
