I have been coming to Palm Springs since the 50's. My husband and I got engaged at the Howard Manor (now the Colony Palms). Here this weekend for the Mid Century Modern week. I crave the old Palm Springs so Melvyns is always on our agenda. Tonight our son joined us. The main or sunroom are equally enjoyable. The servers... More

Step back in time when you visit this unique venue. We visited during happy hour and so did not get to stay for the piano player. In any case, Melvyn's is worth the effort to find and then enjoy. The bartenders are dressed in formal wear and the atmosphere is definitely relaxed and old Palm Springs.

We went for lunch for my birthday in January and were so impressed with the service and food that we had to go once more before going home to Ontario Canada. The ambiance is so Old Hollywood and the service is over the top. I had the French Onion Soup and the crab cakes with fabulous Tartar sauce. My husband... More

Great place for special occasions. Celebrating our anniversary. Very romantic, staff cook food at table. They don't rush you to eat, must have reservations and men must wear long pants and a collared shirt. Give you a free dessert for special occasion.

The food was good but not memorable and the service was excellent. Mostly American fare, I had the pizza, nice thin crust.

Fabulous "old school" dining experience, complete with tuxedoed maitre'd and table side preparations. Dress for the occasion (a sports coat felt right) and enjoy the experience. The food and service were excellent. Steak Diane, prepared tableside was excellent and the Chicken Pot Pie has to be seen to be believed. We were staying at the Inn and invited our friends,... More

My girlfriend and I had spent the day shopping in Palm Springs and picked up new, vintage, frocks. We google searched top spots in Palm Springs for a vintage night out and Melvyn's came up. Not only were we greeted in style by Brian, the host with the most, but we were then guided to the bar and met by... More

Our party of four was seated in a rear room. The wait staff took it upon themselves to open rear doors to shuffle tables into and out of the room as were dining. It was chilly and found their actions to be inconsiderate. Fine dining NOT. Our entrees were OK, but not worthy of mention. Doubt we will return.

I had to check out Sinatra's favorite and it didn't disappoint. Ambiance was fantastic and the service exceptional. Steak Diane was terrific. Highly recommended!

There is a quote on their leaflet - "One of the World's 10 Best". There has been many famous people eating, drinking, staying and no doubt copulating in this historical (at least for the Conchella Vally) hotel and restaurant. And I would not dispute that it could very well be amongst the top ten restaurants in the area but in... More
