Good Food, Fun Atmosphere

We were in town celebrating our birthdays with a few close friends. It was 13 of us in total and The Nest was just a 5 minute drive from out hotel so we thought we'd check it out. The food and service were great and the atmosphere was fun. I was a little confused by the castles on the tv... read more

My husband and I drove from Palm Springs to Indian Wells and spotted The Nest. We were wowed by the lovely, helpful service we received and the $26 3course set summer meal was absolutely fantastic. From the many options, we chose the porcini ravioli & the raw Brussels sprouts salad with cranberries and seeds and followed with incredible pork chop... More

If you are 40+ and love a great piano bar and to dance the night away, this is your place. The vibe, the locals, the all around fun! If you are in PD you need to go to The Nest! Oh and by the way the food is delicious as well!!

Ate here once last year. Very good food, but on the high end. I come here annually on my vacation though for the live music and dancing. Bert has been a fixture here for YEARS and really draws in the crowds. He even shares the limelight with some locals who are very, very talented singers as well. He not only... More

I been there after dinner at Roy's, I had two Cadillac Margaritas while listening music of frank Sinatra and beeges, many people dancing like teenagers! Mature guys dancing and performing like teens, very happy people! I had fun just looking at the dancers!

Dining at NEST is a treat. The menu is diverse and the food is wonderful. I had a steak that was perfectly cooked! The servers are great and always available when needed. Great selection of wine and a full bar as well. The real party is on the adjacent side of the restaurant where there is generally live music and/or... More

This quaint restaurant and bar is a true throw-back to a golden era. The music is eclectic but mostly oldies and the performers are quality. The food is very good, the bar drinks generous, and the atmosphere is one of a kind. Ask any local and they know of this place. It's rocking even in the off season. A cougar... More

There are two sides to this place - restaurant and bar. I've been to only the bar area. Both times it was on a Friday night (probably their busiest night). Great place to go with friends. Unless you are single and looking to perhaps hookup with the many older adults there. Good music but small dance floor. You can order... More

Heard about the Nest as a live music restaurant from the Rat-pack era. Turns out there's no validity to that claim. But, wow, what great live music. The owner, Kevin, played midi-keyboard and sang with 2 saxes and a guitar. He was replaced by equally talented keyboard entertainer (forgot his name) who has performed there for 10+ years. Small dance... More
