My husband and I had dinner, expected the restaurant at the Colony to be decent but the wait time and food quality was extremely disappointing. We ordered the lemon ricotta raviolo which was soaked in red sauce and strong smoked squid flavor, a combination that just didn't work even though the raviolo itself was not bad. Next, they managed to... More

For dinner or drinks it's top notch. Cool and casual chic the spot has a great feel. Drinks are goods, restaurant food excellent and it's located in my favorite boutique hotel in the desert. A must try.

Only stayed for cocktails in the pool side bar. It was not happy hour so the drink was $$$$ but it was the best Manhattan I have ever had! Cool atmosphere and very pretty court yard and pool! One note we could only sit at the bar all the tables in the bar were booked for dinner even though tables... More

5 of us gals met for dinner, we all enjoyed the speciality drinks and amazing appetizers and salads. We split 3 dinners which were a disappointment, the steak was fatty, the swordfish was rubbery and the salmon was OK. I mentioned the steak to our server and he said we just got an end piece. Given the bill was close... More

We've eaten at Purple Palm three or four times over the last two months, for breakfast or lunch. Each time we've found the food to be well-prepared and the service excellent. The ambiance is lovely, whether indoors or out. Overall this is just a reliable, nice place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Purple Palm. The restaurant is very nicely decorated inside and the pool side patio is also very beautiful looking out at the neatly kept pool and the palm fringed verandas of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and overall the atmosphere is relaxed but chic and grown-up. The kind of... More

We visited Palm Springs a few weeks ago and though traveling with a young child, decided to try the Purple Palm for our finale dinner and 3rd birthday party for our grandson. I was a bit nervous as the place is wonderfully decorated and seemed a bit elegant for a 3 year old. It turned out that the amazing staff... More

Nice casual ambiance near the pool in the hotel, interesting wagyu beef dumplings, but kiwi on scallop sashimi not to my taste; sea bass and salmon entrees nicely done. Very good, but just misses being amazing.
