About Workshop Kitchen + Bar
Dedicated to food, drink, design, and community. Workshop Kitchen + Bar is Palm Spring's newest gem in the heart of the Uptown Design District.
Located in the Class 1 Historic El Paseo building from 1926, Workshop’s Industrial chic interior gives the historic space a contemporary edge befitting the locale.
Our kitchen is based around seasonal products from local farms, so the menu changes often. Although "Americana" may best describe the style of our food, influences are many. Favorite techniques in the kitchen include our wood-fired pizza oven, wood-fired grill, and custom sous-vide station.
The bar looks mostly to American classics and carefully homemade basics. Original cocktails vary with the market's availability and our bartender's mood.
* Please note: Booth seating is limited and is reserved for parties of 3 - 6. We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but make no guarantees. For special requests, please call us at (760) 459-3451. *

Workshop Kitchen + Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was our second visit to WSK. It is a very busy place with a lot of crowd noise. There is a long table in the dinning room with backless stools and open seating. The 8 or 10 booths are a little tight. The patio is very nice and misted on warm nights. The bar is very nice with creative cocktails but not a friendly place. That said the food is well prepared, creative, presented. You can choose from pizza or burger to a rib eye for two. The service is friendly, attentive but often lax. The staff is knowledgeable and informative as well as helpful. We were a party of four and brought wine ($25 corkage). We also sampled a vatiety of small plates, entrees, pizza and the burger. The small plate of muscles was the clear favorite of the night. Dinner with corkage, tax & Tip was $350. This was a bit stiff for the evening's food. All things considered I, we would return
Seated by washroom--every time we use Open Table we get seated by the washroom. Food was bland and flavourless--dry chicken almost to the point of so dry it was unedible. Diver scallops dish did not make sense--no flavour. Would not recommend--not good food.
The food was better than I remembered. The Service was good except the waiter took care of a group that came in after us. Both times I went we were seated at the community table which was terrible noisy and uncomfortable. I will always ask for a booth from now on.
Workshop was recommended to us by various folks, both through the accommodations we stayed at and others staying there. While we appreciated the preparations of our dishes as well as the cocktails, all in our party did not feel that the value at Workshop spoke for the food or service provided.
Workshop was a lovely experience. The interior of the space iz absolutely stunning. This alone is a reason to visit. The drinks and the meal were outstanding, epecially the brussle sprouts with chorizo. I ordered with a fried egg on top per the server's suggestion and it was lively. My husband was impressed with the Octopus carpaccio as well. Service was outstanding! Will definately come again.
Great food, so good we went there two nights in a row. Cocktails list was fun, as was their new bar next door. Get's a little noisy inside, but overall, it was money well spent. Nice food and cocktail selection and of 7 dishes we tried they were all fantastic. Service was great, although the servers support staff could use some polishing in upscale dining rules and etiquette. When spending that much money on food and drink, then the expectation is to have all of your front house staff up to par, not just the servers. Overall, the experience was fantastic though, will be back the next time I'm in PS.
The food is pretty and mostly quite tasty but incredibly expensive for what it really is. Even if you took $10 off the price of each dish it still wouldn't be cheap but it would reflective of what it is. It's a cool place with aspirations that don't live up to the prices.
Food and service were great! Beautiful space as well, modern and open. However, if you are seated at the long table, you will have zero privacy. It's basically a communal table and you will be sitting right next to strangers. I made a reservation so I was surprised when we were seated there. The couples next to us seemed slightly uncomfortable too.
Our evening got off to a great start with the cocktail of the day, the Bee's Knees. It was scrumptious. We shared a butter lettuce salad and charred carrots, which were delicious. We had perfectly prepared steaks and shared a coffee ice cream dessert to finish off a wonderful meal. The decor is really cool, with high ceilings and concrete dividers between the booths. Love this place.
Visiting Palm Desert since 1991. My son drove over from Vegas to join us for 2 days. He heard about the restaurant from a wine Som. Best restaurant we have been to out here. We are foodies and this was a pleasant surprise. Food and service were excellent. Jeff, our server, made our dining experience even better!
Would not return or recommend. Like a trendy LA restaurant. Not a lot of food choices --particularly if you are vegan or vegetarian--unless you like pork or shellfish. Food and wine incredibly overpriced. Courtyard is pleasant, but bland--nothing fun or memorable about it. Difficult to get server's attention.
When we arrived the hostess wanted to seat us in the corridor exiting the restaurant. We asked for a different table and she was snippy. Next couple to be seated there (in corridor) wanted to be moved as well but with no luck. The food was salty and boring. Trying culinary sophistication but falls way short.
