We attended Escena's New Year’s Eve seating on 12/31/16 with high hopes and expectations for a really special occasion, but it was a very disappointing experience for us. For $95 per person, we expected something really exceptional in both service and food selections, but both were lacking. To begin with, we had a reservation for six people and had to... More

This country club, if you will, is away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Palm Springs, but well worth detouring those crowds to find refuge here. From the terrace dining area, one is not only treated to a panoramic vista across the valley to the mountains beyond, but also to portions of the beautifully groomed golf course. Complimentary, warm,... More

Our group of 8 arrived at 6:30 am to have breakfast before our round of golf. We had to go right over to the only server in the restaurant to get his attention as he seemed to be ignoring us. Not the friendliest by far! Our breakfast was good, but arrived in phases. The toast came out 10 minutes after... More

A must place to have a meal and a must to sit on the patio which offers beautiful Vista views of the San Juanito mountains, the 9th green, and the departing air traffic. Food and refreshments just add to the spectacular setting and we definitely try to get here more than once each visit! Reservations recommended if you want seating... More

A "Cousins Reunion" brought 20 of us to Escena for Sunday Brunch. What a wonderful experience. The table was ready when we arrived at 10 am. The food was delicious; no complaints. Both my veggie omelet and the Eggs Benedict were "the best we've ever had." The kitchen also accommodated one who must be gluten-free. The service was excellent --... More

We were a party of 3 for lunch. We arrived early and got the best table on the veranda. On a sunny day it's lovely, with 5-star views. The food was quite good. I had the salmon niçoise, with very fresh greens. Service could have been better.

This is the spot for lunch when it's a nice day . The view is breathtaking and so relaxing 😎. We split the Cobb salad and was plenty . Inside has a huge firepit . There is also happy hours. Worth the stop. Service good and quick

Our party of 10 arrived at 10:30 AM. Just a slight wait while they prepared our table. The recent stormy weather was dissipating, yet a few cloud remained and covered the very top of the nearby mountains. A slight breeze prevailed, and shorts were a bit cool, jacket required. Some started out with the Bottomless Champagne, others with the Bottomless... More
