CHI CHI at the Avalon Hotel Palm Springs

From Tara Lazar, the chef that brought you Palm Springs culinary hotspots Cheeky’s, Birba and Mr. Lyons, comes The Avalon Hotel Palm Springs' new restaurant: Chi Chi at the Avalon Hotel. An ode to Tara's childhood summers spent south of the border, the menu recalls soulful Latin standards--with a dash of cheeky California wellness--in the playful pool-centric setting of Palm Springs. Each dish is a memory from her travels, brought back home and reproduced with the freshest local ingredients and home-style scratch cooking. During the day, it’s made for free flowing indoor outdoor meals, spa-side snacking, and casual noshing around our multiple pools. As the sun sets, our relaxed gathering place for food and fun transforms into candlelit fine- dining experience, a perfect poolside venue for hand crafted cocktails, delicious California wines and world-class cuisine that pairs wonderfully with the inspired décor and desert sky overhead.

"First time at Chi-Chi that came from a recommend from friends. Even on a chilly (for Palm Springs) night, eating poolside was warm and comfortable fired by numerous tornado-style flame heaters. Friendly staff and attentive service made for a very enjoyable evening. Chi Chi is an excellent place for a special occasion, anniversary or romantic Palm Springs memory. I'll definitely go again."

"Very delicious but very loud as the indoor seating seems to be an after thought to the bar scene which is immediatley adjacent without barrier. Wedding parties and loud drinkers make it difficult to engage in any conversation with your dinner colleagues."

"Chi Chi's ambiance reminds me a little of Norma's at Parker Meridian but the food was better. My hubby got the chilaquiles and they were DELICIOUS!! As in best chilaquiles ever! My pork belly with yam was disappointing as the sweetness from the yams was a bit overpowering but the Valentino hot sauce helped a lot. That was yum. My 11 year old is a great eater and wanted to try the shrimp burger. They were super awesome to make him a "kid size" and charge him a "kid price" Honestly, I think it was the same size and they just charged him less. He loved it! Very very nice of them. Loved the patio area. Will definitely be back!!!"

"From previous reviews we were somewhat concerned that the service and/or food quality might be disappointing. We had nothing to worry about. Our server, Tony, was excellent and the food was terrific. The four of us ate dishes from all over the menu and we didn't duplicate anything. We liked what we tried. Fresh ingredients, unique flavors, nice presentation, and attentive service made for a nice evening. This new place was much better than some of the past reviews indicated. Worth a try."

"The tortilla soup was not memorable, the grilled octopus in the salad was tough, and the guac came with a few chips and lots of crumbs. We had to eat it with a fork. It was also really cold on the patio and the heaters are more for show than warmth. Overall, not a great evening."

"Ordered the 'Cubano' sandwich. Which is described on the menu as roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. Fine, that pretty much describes a Cuban sandwich. It is NOT! What they brought me was a soggy pulled pork without the ham, lots of pickles and no Swiss to be found. The server was very nice and did comp my sandwich, however, my husband had ordered a $10 glass of Rosé and we were charged $15. We paid and left, but will not return for lunch again. Surprise part is, Chi Chi is part of the Birba and Cheeky's people. I supposed they are overextending themselves a little and the kitchen isn't paying attention to details."

"We had eaten here when the restaurant was "Citron" and decided to try the new restaurant. The service was impeccable but the food was just fair. My fish tacos were a little bit dry and under seasoned with minimal chipotle sauce. My husband's burger was half meat, half guacamole, a surprise given the description on the menu. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and we may try again for dinner."

"First time at this restaurant and it was outstanding. The food was out of this world. It's not easy to find really fine cuisine in Palm Springs. I can't wait to go back. The setting is serene and glamorous dining poolside under a cabana. Staff was wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Thank you for a great experience."
