About Workshop Kitchen + Bar
Palm Springs, CA 92262
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 is a special place. I've eaten there twice and both times have been exceptional. The service is outstanding, I love the architecture of the place. Even though they have a nice patio, I think the inside is too great to miss by eating outside. The food is solid with a twist. The hanger steak was cooked to perfection and the brussel sprout salad was excellent. One of my friends had the salmon on toast and the other had the burger - both felt their meal was exceptional. It isn't cheap but it's worth it.

While the food a Workshop is always good, the menu doesn't seem to have changed in several years. My real issue is with the wine list. The cheapest bottle on the list is nearly $100, which means I am reluctant to visit often.

Workshop is one of my very favorite restaurants in Palm Springs! Every visit is the same; delicious and creative food, amazing service along with great atmosphere! No wonder I keep going back again and again. It is reassuring to know that the food, service and ambiance is consistently at a very high level of quality. Can't wait until next time!

Extraordinary. Not only special for Valentine's with little garden 2-top off to the side in an historic authentic Spanish courtyard = straight to romantic perfect but amazing food, a wonderfully orchestrated and non-disruptive ballet of arrivals and departures all under the skilled care of staff and noticeable discipline of management and chef. A newer to the scene and not-yet tried by us, we have recommended it HIGHLY to several already and would love to get back to explore! Being from a design background as well, the integration of stylish minimalism set against a true passion palette of food/drinks/wine is a gift. Kudos all and thanks!

We dined for Sunday Brunch outside on the lovely patio with a running fountain. The inside is very beautiful too. Overall good. We enjoyed our server though can't remember her name, very French. We ordered the Tom Collins (good) and the Hemingway Daiquiri (served with chunks of ice in it, odd), I ordered a second one and asked for no ice, an improvement. For food, we had the duck hash, very good, the house cured gravlax tartine, good but overpriced for the sizse of the dish, and the lobster breakfast burrito, described as pretty. Would go back as we'd love to try the dinner menu.

Excellent experience overall. Here with LA friends who commented that this is the only place they have been to in PS that has an LA vibe, in a good way. Shared everything. The 4 apps were all very good, best was the duck fried rice; least favorite but still good were the carrots; very small portion for the price. Shared sea bass special; best fish dish I have had in the desert. Only mild disappointment was the chicken; too much mustard which obliterated all the other flavors.

food was tasty but portions were tiny. I usually eat small portions and even I left hungry. You will need to pay a lot of money to feel satisfied. I went with my sister and mother-in-law who are both pescatarians, very few veg/seafood options. Service was exceptional though and decor is on point.

From start to finish the experience is fantastic. The cool unique design of the space, to the yummy cocktails, detailed service and absolutely delicious food. Was wowed from beginning to end. Absolutely can not wait to dine here again!

Great find in Palm Springs. Would also have been a great find in West Hollywood or the Mission (in which case it would be more mobbed than it already is). Locally sourced ingredients, and a creative chef with rock solid, classical technique. Courteous, knowledeable service. Great patio. Easily among the top places in the Valley.

This is an outstanding, if somewhat expensive, restaurant. Chic environment. They've converted a mission-style space into a contemporary industrial set with concrete booths and wooden trusses in the ceiling. Very nice patio. The food is excellent. Try the two-pound roasted bass (whole fish), available on weekends; ample for two. Service is excellent, pleasant and knowledgable without being pretentious or obsequious. You'll remember a meal at Workshop for a long time.

Excellent as always. A little pricey for my budget but good clean ingredients, creative recipes -- you can see and taste the amount of effort and "love" they put into their food. Highly recommended, especially when you want to splurge.
