We were looking forward to re-visiting the Art Museum, but this we only arrived on Sunday afternoon without sufficient time, and would be leaving on Thursday morning, missing the Thursday-Sunday operating hours. My husband and I did have just enough time to relax with a...shared hummus plate and a glass of cotes de provence rose wine each. Nice way to start a brief getaway holiday in PS!More

Three of us had lunch here on 12/9/21 after visiting the Palm Desert Art Museum. We sat outside in the sculptor garden. The food (chicken soup and grilled cheese or tuna melt sandwiches) were great, the service was good and we'd eat here again. The...bistro has an extensive wine list.More

So lovely. I’m so glad I took the time to sit down, enjoy some delicious food and wine, and soak in the beautiful surroundings. Service was attentive and polite. The soup of the day was fabulous and the drink selection was inspired. Really far superior...to what one usually expects from a cafe inside a museum. I’ll be back.More

Out side dinning on the lower level deck of the Palm Springs Museum, this was the perfect spot to reflect on the art we had just seen and to savor their light fare. We were near the end of the meal when we saw two...friends above heading to the box office and called to them and were greeted with a one finger salute. So they joined us and we paid the check! The wine was a special price this day and we got a bottle of Rose de Anges. She had a Greek Salad, I ordered a Panini with Cheddar and Spanish ham, (Jamon). Those entrees were both really, really good. I am looking forward to a visit next year.More

While in the museum, my wife and I decided to try Persimmon Bistro, and we enjoyed our sandwiches, which both reflected good attention to details of fresh ingredients and careful preparation. Atmosphere and noise level were both comfortable, and service was friendly.

We visited the museum in the morning before we would be flying home that afternoon so we also needed a place to eat for lunch. Persimmon Bistro was convenient and turned out to have very good food and great ambiance. The beer selection is excellent....We had the soup of the day and paninis which were very good and finished off the lunch with espressos. Service was also very good. We liked sitting in the zoo printed booths, but the outside area within the sculpture garden would have been as good. It was very enjoyable to cap off a great museum experience with a great meal.More

During our search for the sculpture garden, we had to pass through the Persimmon Bistro. Although we already had made plans for lunch, the decor, the atmosphere and the appealing menu changed our minds. The staff was very courteous and accommodating to all that passed...through, whether or not the visitors stayed for food or drink. My husband had the grilled cheese sandwich, which came with a salad of greens with a light, lemony dressing. I had the caesar salad with marinated white anchovies. We each had a different craft beer from local SoCal breweries. A lovely way to wind down a visit to the museum!More

Came back here again after visiting the museum in which this place is located. A great hidden gem. Persimmon Bistro now has a new owner and a new menu with a friendly and helpful staff. This time we tried the "Share Plater" which consists of...2 flavors of hummus, tapenade, olives & pita bread, along with a great glass of Dry Creek Fume Blanc, what a great light lunch!!!! They also serve panes, salads, a soup, and cheese boards, plus craft beers, expresso bar, soft drinks and of course wine. If you're visiting the museum or just in the area, this is a great place for lunch.More

After enjoying the top floors of the museum we made our way down to the sculpture gardens. To access the one garden you need to go through this little restaurant. We checked out the sculptures outside and then decided to stay for an afternoon snack...and glass of wine. The share platter was very good - olives - pita - hummus - olive tapenade. Our Cotes de Rhone was excellent. Wonderful location with great staff.More

Great place to take a break after seeing the art in the museum. I had a late morning snack with a croissant, tea and a mineral water. The menu has tasty selections. Nice decor or eat outside in the sculpture garden.

Cute little place inside the Palm Springs Art Museum. You have to walk through it to get to the outdoor sculpture garden. I decided to take a little break and had a delicious pesto chicken panini. The manager was kind enough to let me know...that they were in the middle of revamping the menus, so some things may not be available. I appreciated that. The quirky wallpaper and dining booths cover is an attraction in itself!More

I can only mimic the other 5 star reviews. This place is a delight. The service, ambience, and food were nothing short of superb! (I am not, nor do I know the owner but am a "foodie"). My wife and I decided to try this...place because it us under new ownership and has been remodeled. What a surprise. Moderate prices, fresh salads and wraps and a nice wine list (although we didn't imbibe this time). A new menu is in the offing.More

This restaurant is delightfully located in the sculpture garden of the Palm Springs Art Museum. While there is indoor seating, sitting outside in the garden is very pleasurable (weather permitting). The menu items include soups, salads, sandwiches, mac-n-cheese, and quesadilla. And to drink, along with...coffee and specialty teas, craft beers and wine are available. Table service is provided in the garden.More
