We ate here at the top of San Jacinto mountain. Getting there via the tram was exciting. The service was average but the food was above average. We had a nice lunch while looking over the Palm Springs valley.

The experience was enjoyable. Tram ride up, and a little walk before dinner. The menu is expensive. I chose the pork chops because I'm very gluten sensitive. The pork chops were a good size but the over all value for $36.00, not worth it. Plus this morning i woke up with lots of swelling. Explains the extreme tiredness when driving... More

Poor service was the worst part, plus over priced,average food but that is expected for most view places, dine at cafe/bistro instead.

We were really disappointed by the meal & service here. The waiters all gave the impression of being disinterested in the customers. The main menu is limited to salads, burgers & sandwiches but service is slow. We were served flat Pepsi then the wrong order of the burger. When the correct burger came after everyone else was done it &... More

We decided we wanted to splurge and give ourselves a treat and eat at the restaurant instead of the café. I think we might have done better at the café. Our waitress was nice enough but the glowing reviews I had read about the food were no true in our case. Maybe the good food only arrives for dinner because... More

We had lunch there yesterday atop the Palm Springs Tram. The food was excellent, the service was fair, and the view is great. Our only complaint was that the staff brought the wrong order for one of our party of 4. This was corrected, but there seemed to be a certain lack of appropriate attention to the party's general needs.

We stopped her for lunch on our adventure up the gondola. We share the Angus, bacon, blue cheese burger. There was lots for the two of us and it was very good. Service was great. The view from our table on the lower level was very good and I'm sure it would be even better from the upper level. A... More

We we got off the tramway at the top of the mountain we walked straight into Peaks for a late lunch. Our table on the upper level gave us a bit of a view, watching people outside looking through the scope and photographing. We ordered a lunch of salmon with bean salad and vegetables.

We had a good table giving us the chance to oversee the valley . Tables on the upper level are better. Reasonable priced food.
