This place serves celebs. Great food. Active bar scene. Service was excellent. Place is busy so you can feel rushed but don't feel that way it's that the staff is in a NYC state of mind but live in Califoria

Dinner for two was delicious & the stories we coaxed from the waiters were very entertaining. Atmosphere is old school and quite relaxing. Not inexpensive, but affordable. Melvyn's is housed in the historic Ingleside Inn one block off of the Main Street in Palm Springs. Fun night.

Melvyn's at the Ingleside Inn simply exudes the golden days of Old Hollywood Legends. I was last there probably 20 years ago & it hasn't missed a beat in the meantime. We were staying at the Ingleside Inn and enjoyed the atmosphere so very much that we dined there 2 nights in a row. The service is impeccable - the... More

A friend who visits Palm Springs often wanted us to experience one of the city's premier restaurants. We heard about it's past and the atmosphere and couldn't wait. I have to admit, Valentines Day was probably not the right night to try this place as it appeared to be "in the weeds" from the moment we arrived. We arrived on... More

The incredible meal that my husband and I ate at Melvyn's ranks as one of the best of our lives. We ordered Salad a la Melvyn's and Chateaubriand Bouquetiére for Two, finishing with coffee and Chocolate Bombe for dessert. The elegant ambiance of the room and the attentive and friendly staff made this a marvelous and memorable dining experience. Then... More

I cannot recall a more disappointing evening where service and food fell way below expectations. Waiters were reaching over my wife to serve food not once but numerous times. The steak was tough and my wife had to send her over cooked steak back. The waiter used my favorite expression "there ya go" when he put the food down. Overall,... More

We went as a group of seven, celebrating a birthday. Upon entering the front gate of the property, we were immediately greeted by the valet. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we were struck by the charm of the maitre d and waiters in tuxedos. The restaurant looks like it hadn't been updated in years, which made the experience...

On the property of one of the first "Hollywood" resorts, Melvyn's has the atmosphere of the nightclubs of yesteryear. We were there as guests of friends for brunch and we were very impressed. We entered through the piano bar area and were seated in an atrium with a view of the little cottages that make up the resort. As Melvyn's... More

We have been to Melvyns for their Sunday afternoon jam session 3 times. The jam session itself is awesome but the servers, one in particular, leave a lot to be desired. She picks up the dirty glasses by the rims, grabs straws at the top where you would sip from, delivers your glass by handling the rim; all of this... More
