Yesterday four of us went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. It is interesting how one person (employee) can set the tone. When we walked in, prior to giving our name inasmuch as we had reservations, we were greeted by the "maitre d" with these words "take off your hat". He took the hat and failed to return it.... More

By email, the restaurant confirmed we would have a private dining area. We were seated at a table in the middle of the dining room. The reservation had been modified from nine people to seven. The table was set for nine, and the Maitre d' claimed he had not been advised of the change. They failed to mention they do... More

We met friends here this week for cocktails and a late dinner. The piano bar was a blast with all old school Frank Sinatra, Liza Minelli and other throwback to the Ratpack favorites. Cocktails and appetizers were yummy (lobster rolls, crab cakes and sliders). Late dinner included Steak Au Poive, scalloped potatoes and carrots. To die for! Dessert was chocolate... More

If they have clam chowder when you go, but the biggest one you can. It was the best I have ever tasted, Many items are cooked table-side, very cool. Save time to sit at the piano bar as well, so fun!

This is our second lunch at Melvyn’s, this time there were six of us. The restaurant is charming. The menu offerings include some classic dishes. The Caesar salad ($9.75) is crisp and well dressed. We also ordered clams ($12.95) and vichyssoise ($7.75) appetizers and both dishes were very good. The crab cakes were dry and we sent them back. The... More

We visit Melvyn's at at the Ingleside Inn each and every time we visit Palm Springs, California. We love the ambience, the food, the wait staff, and the live music in the lounge! Melvyn's restaurant has a retro Hollywood vibe. As soon as you get on the property you feel like you are back in the 1970's! It's wonderful that... More

We have been to Melvin's many times and usually have a great meal. The service is top-notch and very old school! I was disappointed with the rib-eye steak the last time we were there. It was small, thin and not that tasty ( I wasn't completely convinced it was a rib-eye). I have had it here before, so I know... More

We love Melvyn's! A combination of a beautiful, refined restaurant and a fun, lively lounge with old school music (to be clear, the lounge and restaurant are separate rooms so very different environments). The service at Melvyn's is wonderful and old school...they are professionals! The food is beautifully done and many dishes are prepared tableside giving you a nice little... More
