This is a beautiful restaurant. We went there because they had a special for Mother's Day 2014. I had my favorite, Frog Legs, which were not even half as good as at La Brasserie in La Quinta, CA. The portion was very small and the legs were overcooked. My husband had calves liver which were also overcooked and chewy.

We were told about the Nest from our desert tour guide so we decided to try it. First, we went on a Friday night. We had reservations for 7:00 PM. There is a bar/live music.dancing to the left as you walk in and the restaurant is to the right. The host and owner is extremely nice and asked if we... More

Sole Piccatta was very good. Went with a group and we were seated in the back dining room. I plan to return to try some of their Moussaka. Plan to try Happy Hour next.

We made reservations on open table and requested a table in the bar so we could hear the music, but when we got there there were no tables available to to the happy hour crowd that was lingering. We sat down in the dining room which is not a very intimate atmosphere but we had good food, not amazing but... More

It is definitely a fun place where you can hardly help but smile. The food is goo, the waitress very nice and the music and dancing very fun.

This is a review of the Happy Hour and appetizers--wonderful time on a Friday night in the summertime. Our party of four were greeted warmly. The efficient hostess went above and beyond to locate bar seating for us in this very popular restaurant and piano bar. All appetizers were priced at the happy hour rate of $6 and the choices...

So we had dinner at one of the more infamous places in Palm Springs...actually Indian Wells. If you don't know...The Nest is known as the place all of the "Cougars" hang out. Cougars, you know...older women all dolled up on the prowl. I thought it was a lounge bar place that also served food. Wrong! The Nest is very upscale.... More

My friends and I took a taxi to The Nest. We heard it was the happening place. We arrived to a line. A gentleman came out to ask if we wante to sit in VIP until the bar was available. So he showed us to the back room where there were lots of table. Bar service was nice. After some... More

What an experience. This was our first visit. Outstanding service. Ordered Frog Legs which were a little overdone but still good. The salad wedge was the BEST I ever had with the blue cheese dressing. What a great presentation! My husband had the Caesar Salad and wished he'd ordered the wedge. Well, the portion was large enough to take home... More

It's been 2 years since my last review....and I'm still one of the youngest(59)! Actually the packed house had a number on youngsters, 30-45 yr olds, in it. Don't let the people on walkers waiting in the line fool you, this place rocks. For all those who love Neil Diamond, Abba, Disco, etc, this is Oldies but Goldie's heaven. Loud... More
