The staff made you feel special. Service was first class. The food was superb and the pianist was incredible.
There are not a lot of places like this! Melvyn's is consistent. I've been twice over 2 years, and both times the experience was unique and memorable. Food is excellent. From the tableside spinach salad, pot pies, appetizers - everything is flavourful, and obviously prepared with care. Melvyn's exceeds expectations when it comes to providing an experience! Waiters are the... More
This is a fantastic place for nostalgic menu items., Everything was well prepared, artistically presented and beautifully served. A very impressive place to eat for a different experience in food options. We loved it.
This restaurant brings you back to a different era. The menu is very different - e.g. Lobster pot pie, and the waiters are impeccably dressed. Go to the piano bar after for live music and dancing, especially on the weekened
We have been to the Sunday afternoon jazz sessions in the lounge several times and enjoy them immensely. However, our first dinner at Melvyn's was not what we expected. The service was great, the decor fine if you like that old retro look, but the food was just ordinary. Nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either. There... More
To be honest, part of the reason why this experience didn't meet our expectations is because of poor food choices by ourselves. Melvyn's is a throwback to 40 years ago, a restaurant caught in its own history. Part of the charm of the place is imagining how the hotel and restaurant would have buzzed with LA stars and starlets escaping... More
What a great man. He has been bar tending over 40 years, and the drinks are hardcore, real, great.... No fake BS from this guy. One of the best bartenders I have ever been served
First of all Melvyn's is a landmark in Palm Springs full of celebs in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Stepping inside Melvyn's is like traveling back in time. The staff are all men decked out in full formal service attire, the decor is kind of Rococo and the music is slow jazz. The food was EXCELLENT! I started with a... More
I recently dined at Melvyn's hoping to enjoy the lost art of "old style" dining in a "classy" restaurant. We had a group of 10 and the staff treated everyone with the greatest respect making us all feel like we were "Hollywood" personalities. We all had a wonderful evening but all felt the items were over priced. Presentations of main... More
Branded as an old Palm Springs institution, this restaurant should retain its staff and fire the chefs immediately. The Steak Diane, while flambeed at the table, was composed of overcooked slices of beef filet and was served with insipid steamed squash and carrots and two red potatoes with half of the peels removed....tasteless. The bread was baked frozen mini baguettes... More
