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!

Live music at The Nest piano bar is played by amazing musicians. Not only the two pianists, Kevin Henry (the owner with his wife Dodi) and Tim Burleson, but their friends who join them some of the time on other instruments. The dance floor provides space to "bust the moves" or dance romantically. Very good service and a good bar... More

I wanted a romantic dinner with my husband so I decided to book dinner at The Nest. First off, the parking was not a problem . They offer valet but parking across the street wasn't too bad with just a short walk across the street to get to the restaurant. There are two areas of the restaurant. As you walk... More

Yes, we chose The Nest for our 47th. Why? Well for you newbies out there we have been going to The Nest for over 35 years, back when it was one of the only places in town and the then owner used to wear the gold medallion he got from the yogi he was seeing. It became known (and still... More

The Nest is the desert party spot. Our evening started out in the bar area where Rosalie made us feel right at home. Although we had a large group she took all the drink orders, delivered them and took individual/couple payments with no problems. While we waited for our table we were entertained by Kevin, the co-owner, playing the keyboard... More

OK, I'll start from the beginning. Gracious welcome. We did have reservations and got seated right a way. The owner was very friendly and hospitable. The table we had was nice, but the entire meal was pretty much distracted by the noise factor. If you are looking for an intimate, quite place to dine, this is not the place. With... More
