Interesting atmosphere: a mixture of modernity and times past, style and kitsch, family restaurant and... Some in my company found it depressive, others funny, though there was some defiant elegance in it as well. Service was professional and helpful. Wine (their Malbec) did not work out for me. The food is overall good though, and that is most important: the... More

One of our must do's when we are in town. Visited in May 2016 with really bad results. Gave another chance last night. So glad we did! Impeccable service, excellent food (we had cabbage rolls, crab cakes, pasta and a rib eye), great music. We had a blast watching people and dancing!

And very good food. Been here a few times for very good meals in the restaurant and then next door for some after dinner drinks and dancing in one of the busiest bars in town. Always fun people watching dancing and partying with an older crowd. Good times and always entertaining!!!!!!

Clientele trying just a bit too hard. Depressing surroundings, sad menu. Were we really at the same place that received all the great reviews?

We were here on a Saturday night and it was hopping. All ages and I mean 21 - 80! Two different rooms with dancing. A piano bar in the main bar and a DJ in the back room. We had a great time.

We visited this establishment while in town for a convention. A group of eleven of us had a wonderful dinner. The only downside was that did not split checks which makes it very difficult for business travelers that need their receipts for reimbursement. The reason given was that the kitchen would not be able to prepare and present the food... More

Stopped by here while staying in Palm Desert for our last night on vacation. We've unsuccessfully tried to find piano bars in the past, I guess they're going away (sad). A server at a nearby restaurant told us of this establishment if we were looking for live music in the area. Went in and had a drink at the bar... More

My girlfriends went here on a Monday night not expecting much going on and ended up staying until they closed. We had a wonderful time. The owner greeted us at the door and was super nice. The food was delicious, reasonable priced and the service was outstanding. We had the soup of the day, carrot soup and it was tasty.... More

We had a great evening sitting in the bar and having dinner. The food was tasty and fresh, great value. The Nest has an "old-time-y" feel and great ambiance. We will return!
