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
We were here with family while visiting in Palm Springs. Since we were a family of 5 we sat in the middle on the communal table and it was fine . The decor is beautiful in this restaurant and they also have outside seating.
We ordered some of the craft cocktails and they were very good. The wine selection is very nice as well.
We ordered a sampling of the small plates to share for appetizers and all thought the food creative and well prepared.
Then we ordered main courses as well.
I had the scallops - they were absolutely delicious and my daughters shared the whole cooked fish special and that was wonderful and simply prepared.
All in all a wonderful experience but it is on the pricey side.
We eat out a lot. Had a fantastic experience here. From the minute we walked in the door service was top notch. Hand crafted cocktails. Farm to table menu was spot on. I did the Market Vegetables. Delicious! My husband did the pork chop. Cooked perfectly. Food arrived at perfect pace. I don’t usually do dessert but decided to try the Lemon Tart. Ridiculous. Good thing they only gave me one slice. Give it a go. You will not be disappointed.
A maitre d'hotel should NEVER ask, " Is you second here?" when a patron checks in. The food was C+ at best, uncomfortable booths--excellent friendly service though- and my main course was $30+ for three small scallops. I won't even talk about the dessert! I would never go back.
We have wanted to go here forever, but for some reason had not booked it until now. I think the communal table idea was a turnoff, but in the end it turned out just fine. The food was really outstanding (chicken with blackberry BBQ sauce, little gem Caesar salad, hangar steak, pork tenderloin). Good craft cocktails. Service was great too (Patrick). It was kind of a “scene” at the bar, and with all the young ladies in little black dresses it felt more like a nightclub. Highly recommended for the food and decor.
The problem is, this restaurant charges way too much for what it is. We live in Los Angeles and go out to dinner a lot. We explore all of the new restaurants, etc. I rarely feel ripped off in Los Angeles even though it is a major city and has a lot of high end restaurants. It's simply overpriced by several estimations.
Second issue was, it took 35 min between our salad and our entrees; that was unacceptably long.
I give this feedback simply to help this place readjust to better serve its customers. Thanks
The food was great, but small portions for the price. The service was a bit slow. We sat at the bar for a drink while waiting for our table and it took the bar tender 10 minutes to take our order and serve us. I would go back but would keep in mind the slow service.
Seriously overpriced at this point. $85 for their stuffed fish special is criminal. Cocktails overpriced as well. They need to up their dessert game in a serious way. Their cornmeal/almond cake should be springy and fluffy and cold from the refrigerator is a lump of blandness.
GOOD FOOD NOT WORTH THE OTHER STRESSES> Listen, I know its the desert, and it was a particularly hot weekend, but there was no difference between the outdoor heat and indoor heat. we literally rushed our whole dinner because we could not bear to sit in their any longer. our reservation was at 9 but the could seat us for for a mother 5 minutes because we arrived @855 even though the table was ready. so we were forced to the bar with an extremely rude bartender and then could not even transfer the tab to our table. we had to pay for our drinks before we were allowed to sit.
Workshop is a welcome addition to the PS food scene, most notably for the ultra modern ambience which is a real wow factor. My server was attentive and friendly. I found the food, while inventive, just ok. The portion sizes of what I oredered were small and it would have been appropriate if bread was included, considering the prices were on the higher end of the scale.
2nd consecutive anniversary dinner at workshop. Told them in my reservation and to my surprise they stuck a candle in the desert we ordered and said happy anniversary then charged us for the desert??
Petty?? Not sure. Oh well good menu and cocktails a really quiet night so not too loud can get loud when full.
Bring your wallet with you, gets a bit spendy quick.
Great for a special dinner.
Workshop was such a great dining experience. The food was so different with amazing flavours. My only complaint would be that each course came out extremely quickly so our overall dining experience was shorter than we would have preferred. Other than that, it was fantastic!
We had brunch here and then came back a few days later for after dinner drinks & dessert. Everything was excellent! Highly recommend the brunch; the gin fizz (only available for brunch) is literally one of the best drinks we've ever had. Totally worth the wait and absolutely incredible. We also had the croissant BLT, the blue crab Benedict (another must-have), and some duck fat fries. We live in Chicago so brunch is important to us and this was easily one of the best we've had.
While we didn't have dinner, their wine list is excellent and the seasonal cocktails were both amazing. The almond cake was delicious too.
Also of note, both the servers we had were so so friendly, accommodating, and attentive. We'll be going back on our next visit for sure!
I have eaten here three times. The first two times were a wonderful experience. The last time I dined at Workshop Kitchen, there was a definite drop in the portion size vs. price. The portions were VERY small, and the prices seemed extremely expensive for what arrived at the table. We ordered a variety of plates, and I hate to say it, but it was very underwhelming for what it cost.
I love the ambience at the place, and all of the staff are extremely polite and it seems very organized. The space is beautiful. I wouldn't recommend Workshop to anyone for anything more than a cocktail and maybe a snack.
