Purple Room Supper Club is a fun, intimate and friendly place where the locals, celebrities and travelers hang out. We offer great 3 Course Purple Prix Fixe Menu & Happy Hour Tuesday-Thursday 4-6pm, live entertainment and a full dinner menu. We opened our doors in 1960 inside the Club Trinidad Resort, which was built that same year. This still-popular venue is considered to be one of Palm Springs’ “original” Rat Pack Hangouts – where Frank Sinatra and the “Pack” would bring friends to eat, drink and play! We offer complimentary live entertainment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Our Mainstage, ticketed shows run Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday evenings at 7 pm, with dinner reservations starting at 5:30 pm for 7pm shows. A few seats in the bar area have restricted views of the stage, but we have monitors throughout for easier viewing. For those guests who prefer not to stay for a ticketed show, we suggest dinner reservations prior to 5 pm. Yes, we’re famous for celebrity sightings – you never know who will be at the Purple Room; so we kindly ask that you allow our guests to enjoy themselves by respecting their privacy! Remember, what happens at The Purple Room STAYS at The Purple Room. It’s where Palm Springs Plays! Please let us know if you have questions; we look forward to your visit!
We went on a Thursday night for the Jazz Show with Michael Holmes. It was so good!!! The ambience is amazing....love the glitter ceiling. Staff was super nice and food was delicious. I'm still dreaming of the lobster and shrimp linguine and blue cheese wedge salad. Will definitely go back when in Palm Springs.

Since 1994, Miro's has become a vital addition to the Palm Springs culinary market, offering unique Slavic, Hungarian, Italian, Greek and German style of cooking. Considered "The best kept secret" by Locals.
First off, beautiful setting and outstanding service! At such an expensive price (our one appetizer and two entrees was $100), the food was a big disappointment. Escargot starter was served in a slimy, film-covered gravy (how can you mess up butter and garlic? I suspect they added corn starch). Covering the snails in slime was off putting. Then my entree arrived: shrimp and scallops, supposedly in beurre blanc, but it was covered in the same weird gravy as the snails, but with chopped tomatoes thrown in! Scallops were colorless and the lumpy mashed potatoes were flavorless. My companions's pork leg was a bit dry and flavorless, like it was sauced after cooking. Couldn't finish anything.

Our family found this fantastic restaurant in a quiet little strip mall in Palm Springs while on holidays! The food and service were top notch and the portions were huge. I highly recommend sharing. They have a great patio as well.

Established in the heart of Palm Springs since 1973, Le Vallauris located at the foot of San Jacinto Mountains has been the highest rated restaurant in the Palm Springs Valley since its inception. Owned and operated by the well known restaurateur Paul Bruggemans who was also owner of the Famous Le St Germain restaurant in Hollywood. The Historic Landmark was built in 1927 and was owned by the owners of the famous Desert Inn which was The hotel in the Valley. Many grand parties were held in the house for guests such as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and many more. It was a favorite place for General Patton when he was based in Palm Springs to stage the Battle of the Bulge during World War II. Later on, when the restaurant was established it became a favorite place for Presidents and the Hollywood elite. The renowned Patio lined with Giant Fichus trees is THE place to dine. The Patio is cooled in the Summer and heated in the Winter.
Le Vallauris is our favorite restaurant in Palm Springs. We've enjoyed dinner there several times, and this past weekend decided to try it for a birthday lunch. Unfortunately the patio was closed due to rain (hard to believe in Palm Springs anymore), but inside seating was fine. The lunch prix fixe menus were delicious -- beet salad and beet gazpacho for the first course, duck breast for second, and the (wonderful) Grand Marnier soufflés for dessert. It was a great way to celebrate a birthday.

I started going to Elmer’s when my roommate moved to Portland in the early 90’s. I was pleased to find one just down the road from my home in Palm Springs. The food reminds me of dinners when I was growing up. Simple, yet delicious with a few fun items thrown in including the German pancake and the breakfast crepe. Coffee’s always good with friendly, fast service.

We arrived on time for our reservation and the Hostess was impatient and felt unwelcoming. This was our last harrah before ending our va-ca and heading home so we saved it as our special occasion dinner. You can forget intimacy on our last night. It was so crowded "outside" that we were listening to tables on both sides of of ours and felt very crowded, distracting and uncomfortable.
The prices were very reasonable. The French onion soup was very food. The beef wellington sliders were tasty and a large serving suitable for sharing. Service was lacking; there was little recognition of liquor needs. The Lobster tails were delicious. The short ribs were also quite good. The fixed price dessert took forever to get to the table. Spencer's is way too crowded, but given quality of food and prices, I guess crowds should be expected. Not a special occasion restaurant, but more like a very expensive, albeit high end, chain.

Copley’s on Palm Canyon is an award-winning restaurant serving upscale American cuisine infused with traces of tropical and European flavors. Located in part of the former Cary Grant estate, guests may experience a sense of nostalgia while dining outside on the patio with stunning mountain views or enjoying the inviting atmosphere indoors. Executive Chef Andrew Copley has an extensive 20-year culinary background at five-star restaurants and hotels across the world and is known for innovative dishes.
We had a lovely dining experience at Copleys on Palm Canyon, which was located in Clark Gable's old estate. We took my sister out for her retirement dinner. Service was excellent all around, and the menu was creative, with food cooked to perfection. Smoky papparadelle with giant prawns was delicious and the Berkshire pork chop with calvados sauce was superb. I ordered the truffle fries instead of smashed Yukon potatoes and they were crispy with the right hint of truffle. Corn chowder with bacon was a smooth starter, Caesar salad had a great anchovy flavor--and oh those pineapple croutons, while the wedge salad was crispy and cold with the right amount of bacon and bleu cheese. No room for dessert, had the great warm bread, with softened butter (so nice to be able to spread it!) instead. We ate inside, as my hubby hates the smell of gas burners, but I sat at a window overlooking the patio for a "feel" of the outside. Many were dressed casually. While this is fine dining, it is not over-the-top, or pretentious.

What I love about this restaurant is what ever family owns it. I came here by MYSELF and it was full and took a four top and they were cool. At some point I split my table with a guy who was hanging out with O2--no problem, he asked. Staff didn't miss a beat being kind. Of course I'd rather come with someone else but I was at a workshop. And yes the CR rock.
