We recently ate at Norma's during a long weekend visit to Palm Springs. Our brunch was outstanding - the lobster omelet and lobster salad stood out, however the side of warm Norma's doughnuts took the meal over the top. Our server was incredibly attentive without being overbearing. Whilst not cheap, the meal certainly stood out amongst others we enjoyed (including... More

I was very excited about eating at Norma's based off of the energy one gets from entering the Parker Hotel. Norma's is located towards the back, in a lush green garden. The decor is very cool. The food is pricey, but very good. I was there for dinner and ordered fish tacos, which were fresh and great. We started with... More

It is pricey, but so good! We stayed at The Parker and ate here twice. First time, we ordered the salmon eggs Benedict and a Waz-za. I LOVED my Waz-za! Next time, it was huevos ranchero and berry french toast. Very good, but I preferred the Waz-za. Now the orange juice is definitely fresh, but also $6. My husband liked... More

We visited the modernism shops in Palm Springs and then had lunch at the Parker. The car attendants and waiter were terrific. I especially liked our waiter who told us the history of the Parker. The food was pretty good. I had the fish tacos with fish grilled...could have been a little more fish in the tacos. I wanted more... More

Visited twice same week for breakfast. On the first visit the staff were superb and food delicious. The breakfast menu has so many good choices it's hard to choose. The outdoor terrace is modern and comfortable and all aspects of the service were well executed. On our second visit the computer system had failed and carnage followed. The wait time... More

Really good breakfast. The famed potato pancakes are of course good, as well as the smoothies. The only thing it lacked was the service was a little slow and not attentive, and this was when there were only two other tables at the restaurant. I'm sure it was just an off day, the staff was otherwise great when we stayed... More

Yes, it's a bit pricey, but where else can you sit outside on a gorgeous patio surrounded by swaying Palm Trees and noshing next to A list celebs? We went for brunch on a monday, and sat between Liv Tyler and Gary Oldman. The service was excellent, and the grub was first class. The eggs rancheros were superb. Loved everything... More

I ate dinner here with three friends. We started in the hotel lobby with cocktails and love the design and feel of the place. Once we moved into the dinning room it all changed. NONE of us like our very expensive meal. The server was nice, surroundings pleasant, but none of us finished our meals
