When the Army Engineers first mapped Coachella Valley, there were few landmarks but 'Two Bunch Palms' was there; Al Capone had his hideout here and it's possible to see his suite. Reservations are required for the restaurant, but it's an entry to the beautiful grounds. Take a walk while you're there. Food is fresh and tasty. Somewhat limited menu but... More

Essence Restaurant used to be my favorite lunch eatery in Palm Springs - but it's getting tiresome. Once the tuna melt was the best in the universe, but last week it was on par with a public school lunchroom. I also recently ate the salmon wrap & found it so dry I'd call it parched. The salmon was also a... More

This restaurant was the Casino for Al Capone back in the day. The chase is gone but the view of the mountains is still there. You need to speak up for what you want to eat if you're not into new Cali food. The food is good and sitting outside is very nice. The wait staff is very good,the restaurant... More

We went for lunch. The menu is quite varied. We had the salmon salad. The salmon was good, the salad it sat on not so good ;(. The flan trio was very watery. I have never had watery flan. The views were very nice. However, the worst part was that the tables by the windows were full of flies!! So... More

This restaurant is now called Essense. I went there for lunch with friends. It was vegan friendly with a delicious vegetarian garden sandwich. My side with the sandwich was stone fruit in a balsamic reduction which I liked a lot. The restaurant is light and airy with a very pretty view. The only irritating part of our lunch was there...

This a a very exclusive resort that only started leting none registered guests past their security guard for lunch or dinner . Today we had lunch as usual the servic and food was great. Two Bunch has an intriguing past. This place was origially built by Al Capone His original house is still there .

Had breakfast there every day. Very fresh and healthy. Bacon wrapped dates are to die for. Nice and quiet with a view of the mountains

Without a doubt, the most delicious & beautiful food in the Palm Springs area'. I've been several times now - find lunch the best value & definitely the dining room shines in the sunshine. My favorite meals are the Indio fig salad (the balsamic dressing was actually mood altering!), the tuna melt, the blackened salmon Caesar (only if offered with... More

Food, drinks and service is excellent. Monday night is 1/2 off their wine list. Great deal! Menu is limited, but substitutions were made without a problem. Prices as expected in a resort.
