Lovely staff, lovely food. I arrived and felt right at home. The staff was war and engaging and the nuance was quite refreshing. I enjoyed my self thoroughly and will be going back.

John was our waiter and was very pleasant. He remembered us from last year. He helped us to make a special occasion even more special. The food which is usually very good left something to be desired and I would not recommend the skirt steak. (It reminded me of eating at Denny's) The Blue Cheese Salad was excellent. The entertainment... More

I like to do bullet points so you don't waste precious time. Here goes: 1. This is not a LuLu or even Alicante cheaper eats (as good as those places are). It's not even a prix fixe dinner at Zin American Bistro (one of the best values in town, imho). This is in a class all it's own...or possibly in... More

We enjoyed our dinner (I had the salmon) on Monday evening so much that we decided to try the breakfast on Thursday morning before I headed for the airport. I had a delicious BLTA, which was bacon, arugula, tomato and avocado on s croissant. Mmm good😊You can eat inside or out by the pool. We chose to eat outside because,... More

I've stayed at the Colony Palms numerous times and find it hard to leave the property. So the Purple Palm is my hangout spot. The restaurant has a really eclectic vibe to it, which is a lot of fun. The the patio outside overlooks the pool and the mountains, which is such an amazing spot to enjoy dinner or a... More

Went here for New Year's Eve dinner and didn't care for the food. We were hoping for a great experience but very disappointed with food that lacked flavor but surprisingly good presentation. Service was impeccable.

This is a wonderful brunch spot. We sat outside by the pool. The restaurant and hotel can be a hard to find but are well worth the effort. The restaurant is through the lobby and behind the pool. The views are wonderful and the food is superb. We split the croissant BLTA and the brioche french toast. Both were delicious.

I went here for breakfast and it was great. I ate outside (even tho it was chilly) just because the view was so pretty. But the inside looked great too! (Pictured). Great service. Tasty Huevos. Thumbs up all around!

This was my second visit to the Purple Palm. I love the setting beside the pool in the classic Palm Springs venue. The service was very friendly and we weren't rushed at all. I had the eggs benedict. The french toast looked amazing. I'll definitely be back.

We stayed at the Colony and had heard that the restaurant at the hotel was good but didn't think a lot about it. The menu described inventive and contemporary food and so we stayed. The surprise was how good everything was. The chef here is fantastic. We finished with a flourless chocolate cake with carmelized bananas that we would cross... More
