I've heard about this place on previous trips and for some reason thought it was a hang out for the older set, so I stayed away. This time we decided to give it a try and I am so glad we did. It is a mixed crowd so not all old or all young, which I enjoy. There is a... More

The Nest is really two very different places in one restaurant. We went for dinner at 6 PM. That is important to know because the music and dancing start at 8. The restaurant is a fine dining experience, although the decor is a bit sad. The menu is quite eclectic, offering everything from steaks to pasta to Yugoslavian comfort food.... More

Had the Chef's special. Panko encrusted sole. Tasted to oily. Service was very nice. Three of us ordered this so we may have ordered the wrong thing. The bar adjacent is great. Wonderful live music.

A group of us came to this location for dinner while attending a conference in the area. It is close to many hotels in Indian Wells. It's easy to miss from the main road, and the exterior is nothing special to look at. Once inside, it seemed like an average (maybe a bit more), but that quickly passed. The waiter... More

The food, the service and the atmosphere were on point. Yes, it is higher priced but you are definitely getting what you pay for. We started the evening with martinis which included blue cheese stuffed olives. That's the key to my perfect martini! The escargot was garlicky and buttery. The leftover sauce was soaked up with the warm, soft sourdough... More

My husband and I spent our first night in Indian wells at the nest for happy hour. It has a great atmosphere and a wonderful waitress who looked after our every need and made sure we got a taxi to take us back to our hotel. She virtually ran the place and was excellent at her job. The live music... More

My wife and I went here looking for a place with some live music and good food. We hit on both. They have a good band with some brass in it, playing old rock and roll early in the evening, but changing to current music as more young people start arriving around 8:30. The service was first class with one... More
