Birba is an unusual restaurant. First off you need to go online to make your reservations on their own website and it's all in real time. If you cant find a table at the time you want for the size you want then it's already taken and try another time or size table. In our instance there was no table... More

See my review of adjacent Cheeky's, under common ownership. We tried this place several time when it first opened and then since, and we've had a disastrous experience each time. Ditto with out of town friends. We couldn't get waited on (apparently an ongoing problem), and when we did and the food arrived, we wished we hadn't succeeded at that... More

Outside seating beneath misters on a warmish night, we had one of the most delightful, sophisticated, creative meals in our dining experience. And the service was exceptional. The only attitude was a good attitude. First course was two small roasted heads of cauliflower that had been drenched in lemon juice and some olive oil and topped with parmesan, lemon zest... More

We recently stayed at the Alcazar and were really excited to have dinner at the restaurant. We read the menu online before visiting and even made reservations before we even drove down. What a bummer. Everything the other reviewers have mentioned is true. Super attitude from the staff. Even that can be overlooked somewhat if the food is amazing. Nope.... More

I forgot to write a review from the New Years Eve party, but this is a place I really love and feel comfy @. When I come to PSP, it's on the top of my list every time. They did such a great job for NYE- it was fun and laid back. Nothing too crazy and wild but just really... More

We left San Diego after work on a Friday and arrived at the Riviera Hotel late in the evening, after a couple of drinks it was a little late but we were ready to eat. We found this gem using our Urban Spoon app and so glad that we did! Charming, all outdoor location with delicious food! We had the... More

This restaurant is really convenient for those closer to the 10, especially Old Las Palmas (OLP). The wait staff were timely and polite, yet friendly. We arrived about 8:30 pm on a Wednesday, and yet there was a nice mix of folks (moms & kids, LGBT couples, younger groups), it was really nice. The drinks were pricey and seemed watered... More

We had a really nice pizza (good, crispy crust), nice drinks, young fun atmosphere. It was a little too crowded for the nice leisurely dinner I was seeking (felt more club like than restaurant) but overall a good dining experience.

This really pleasant outdoor restaurant is really pleasant, even during 100 + summer days. Pizza is very good. Tiramisu was excellent. Wine was good but served in a really tiny plain glass – even more boring than the water glass. Just seemed odd. Definitely recommend this place when you are in Palm Springs.

This place was so good. The patio is beautiful and the food was awesome. Love the kale salad and the cauliflower appetizer. All the pizzas were great.
