Old established restaurant in Palm Springs. My only experience is for lunch the Cobb Salad ala Brown Derby is sensational a must have. It is prepared table side without asking for the traditional dressing....blue cheese is standard and the only way to have an original Cobb salad. Fortunately the stuffy dress code has been relaxed for lunch and shorts and... More

This was my second experience with Melvyn's Restaurant with the first being much better. It appears the wait staff is getting tired and just goes through the motions... Though there is plenty of room in this establishment one of the rooms was closed off and everyone was packed into the front half. The wait staff had a hard time getting... More

We had been cruising the PS downtown, enjoying a happy hour or two on a hot summer day…. and then decided to take a little hike to this place. Sunday afternoon and the place is jumping (could hardly find a spot). Brian, the tuxedo clad boss man, was very friendly (a true host) and when asked "why" they were so... More

This is a great restaurant serving amazing food in a wonderful atmosphere. All the waiters are dressed in bow tie and the service was impeccable. The bar is impressive too. Definitely a place to visit if you are in Palm Springs.

It's just cool to sit at Sinatra's favorite table, under his portrait and hear stories from the woman who waited on him! And yes, the food and service are marvelous, too! Put on your Madmen best and have a bourbon!

We always eat here when we visit Palm Springs. The food and service is very good. Try the Cherries Jubilees for dessert.

The beef is excellent and I always go for the creme brulee and coffee for dessert. Most people dress up a little for this place, but not required....after all it's California.

The atmosphere at this restaurant is classic and elegant. We recently hosted a shower luncheon for 20+ guests in their beautiful patio room. Our guests were very impressed with the food, the service and the beautiful grounds. We were not rushed at all and I appreciate that. The entire staff was attentive and so helpful with our every request. The... More

I love Melvyn's. It hasn't been redecorated since the 80s and much of the clientele is a bit senior, but that's part of its charm. The other part is excellent service, from the maitre d to the bartender to the waiters, who will cook part of your dinner table-side. There is also a piano player and dancing every night. Love...
