Every time we visit Palm Springs, CA we make it a point to have lunch at Manhattan in the Desert. This past February we had another couple join us and they were impressed with the lunch.

We ate here several times on our vacation. The food was fresh, fast, and fantastic! The combo sandwich was too big for my tiny Canadian tummy to handle, but it did not stop me from trying! My next visit, I had the soup and 1/2 sandwich instead and it was the perfect meal size. The sandwich was STILL massive. And... More

Good deli's are hard to find anywhere and getting one in Palm Springs was a little bit of a surprise, but we had a very good lunch. Two salads and three sandwiches, the pastrami, grilled ham and cheese, and the turkey club were the sandwiches, all were good and a good size. The Greek Salad and the Cobb Salad were... More

Usually clean, I wonder who is minding the store? What rating does it have? Bottles of condiments were dirty. The waiter said that dusting and vacumn are not done daily. Coul not enjoy the Turkey Burger because of the uncleanliness. Will not go back. Food was not up to usual high standard. Will not go back.

We found this gem on the way from the airport to our hotel. It was so good the first time, we came again later during our stay, after visiting Indian Canyons. The menu is massive. You can order breakfast anytime of day, the sandwiches are huge, the desserts tempting and enormous. Prices are decent, bathrooms clean, service exceptional. Whole family... More

I have reviewed this before and generally like MITD. Wanted to add a disappointment, however, but not enough to steer me away. Went for happy hour early one evening and sat at a hi top in the bar area. Service was good. I did something I usually don't do - I ordered a comfort food dinner special for $11.99. I... More

We enjoyed a very nice dinner here. Our waiter was overworked, it seemed, and missed part of our order but he comped a desert to compensate. Our meals were well prepared and presented. The cocktails were delicious and strong. We had no real complaints but we observed other tables having issues with their soups. The missed part of our order... More

There's nothing like a beautiful day in Palm Desert sitting on a patio enjoying a wonderful lunch at Manhattan in the Desert. The food was excellent and the service efficient and friendly. Sandwiches are overstuffed with lean meats and the sides tasty. The menu is extensive with something for the pickiest eater. A great place for a relaxing afternoon meal.

We visited twice in 5 days tasting whitefish salad, pickled herring, and gefilte fish appetizers, and kosher hot dog, kosher salami, and roast turkey sandwiches accompanied by pickle trays. We also shared rugelah desserts. All food was very good deli quality, including breads. Service was very good.

We stopped in on the advice of others. The restaurant is huge so need not worry if the lot is full. The menu is huge and the sandwich selection was great. We had the soup and sandwich special which was outstanding. Really enjoyed the food and service. Got to give this a try.
