“Great dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2013 via mobile

The Purple palm probably has the best overall meal I have had in Palm Springs. Nice atmosphere, good if not great food. Service was better then what I have experienced in all of Palm Springs. Nothing negative to say. In fact order the scallops they were divine!

“Loved It!!! Romantic in an old Hollywood style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

We had a beautiful dinner on a recent trip to Palm Springs! Our server was so nice and attended to our every need. We were seated overlooking the pool which was a very romantic atmosphere.

The food was served in timely manner making sure to let us savor each course. Try the dates as a starter they were out of this world.

The restaurant is expensive but worth the memory and experience!

“Pricey but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

Great place if you don't mind spending a few bucks. The ambiance by the pool is fantastic. The service and food are top notch. Nice place for a special occasion. Enjoy the firepit next to the restaurant after dinner for a nightcap.

“Nice food but dark at night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

enjoyed the variety of food available. I had a few meals here as I was staying at the resort and often ended up getting 4-6 small plates and salads which gave me the chance to try lots of different food. At night the table I was at was ridiculously dark to the point where I couldn't really see what I was eating which did annoy me a bit. Overall a good place to eat.

“Precious little restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

We were guests of the Colony Palms Hotel. We had lavender mojitos, a 5-cheese plate starter as well as the roasted garlic hummus when we first checked in. For dinner, we had the grilled romaine caesar salad, sweet and sour shrimp & veggie soup, seared scallops and tandoori Jidori chicken. Everything was awesome, with the exception of the tandoori chicken - most AWESOMEST chicken dish we have ever had. The next morning, we had the lemon pancakes, 3 egg omelette and oatmeal for breakfast. What wonderful culinary experiences we had all at the same restaurant. Most people tend to dismiss hotel restaurants as simply a convenience for hotel guests, but this place is such a gem with truly great food, service and ambience.
