"Lobster pot pie was wonderful. My big disappointment was my gin and tonic(s). A place known for martinis should have better cocktails. It was no better than a corner bar."

"We heard about Melvyns from a local and couldn't wait to try it out. Absolutely no disappointment! We had relatives visiting from out of town so took that as an opportunity to show them a fabulous eating experience in Palm Springs. We will go back and we won't wait for out of towners next time!"

"After dinner we made our way back to the bar and the piano player there is just incredible he was playing oldies and the crowd is mostly ion their fifties thru seventies. It kind of reminded me of the Beverly Hills Mastro's before it became a chain."

"The service was very, very good. The atmosphere (while dated) was very nice (old school). I loved the meals that were prepared table side. The portions were not large and could have been slightly better but overall, this was a wonderful meal and a nice place to go. Lots of history there."

"We were married at the attached Ingleside Inn and had our wedding reception at Melvyn's. It's a special place to visit and we always enjoy the staff that we met back in 2001.
We brought a friend to share our always lovely experience and she loved it! No surprise. We all enjoyed our delicious cocktails and dinner. We will always return for more!
Our only disappointment was the Vegas style pool party for the Coachella Festival attendees across the driveway. We couldn't hear the music once we were inside, but getting to the valet stand was an unfortunate chore. The party goers appeared to be very intoxicated and barely able to walk on their own to get out of the way of folks driving in to dinner.

"Some old favorite sandwiches, done very well. Had to wait for about 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated, but could have had a drink in their very nice bar area. Very nice and seasoned staff, prompt service and food was done just right. We've been here before and find that Melvyn's doesn't disappoint."

"Great spot for Easter brunch. Service was almost impeccable falling short only with the wrong entree served for one of the dining party. Food was good but fell short; perhaps due to the pre-set EASTER menu and high volume of servings. We want to return on a non-holiday to get a better idea of the kitchen's skills. Nevertheless we all had a wonderful experience."

"This is one of our favorite restaurants! We have been there many times and enjoy the food and the ambiance. This time however, the service we received was not very good at all. The waiter was very forgetful, slow and ruined our dining experience. Not sure what the problem was but we have never had bad service there so it was very surprising."

"A Palm Springs classic. Frank Sinatra used to sit at the bar. It is a charming and perfect for a family together. The food was excellent and the entrees include a salad or soup. I find that to be good value! One of my favorite places in the desert and I am a local!"

"Very nice, old-fashioned, elegant restaurant. Food was good although my chicken marsala could have been more tender. Great service; one waiter noticed I was using my phone flashlight to read and lent me a penlight to use instead. I felt very well treated."
