Great atmosphere. Delicious food. Fabulous service. Steak Venetian was delicious even if the steak was a little chewy. Bloody Marys were smooth. Nostalgia all over the walls. Hands down, best ambiance for old world style.

Great old school restaurant serving great dishes. Table side tossed Cobb salad was excellent and well portioned. The sausage and mushroom omelet was huge and delicious! Beautiful glassed in, vine covered room overlooks the Ingleside hotel grounds. Excellent attentive service, a hidden gem!

There are very few old-time restaurants left but Melvyn's is one of them. This was our first time here but definitely not our last. We drove all the way from Indio and not sorry at all. When we first approached, we wondered if the GPS was right because it looked like we were in the middle of nowhere. But when... More

As a local long-time year around resident of Palm Springs I have dined at Melvyn's for years. I like to support my locally owned businesses and while there are so many choices in the valley for dinning I've tied to visit Melvyn's on a regular basis. Recently I asked a friend to go out to dinner with me from Rancho... More

This restaurant still offers table side service including one of my favorites steak Diane. If you dine here stick to the old standard dishes. They are prepared flawlessly. They also serve a nice lunch. Dress code at night so be sure and wear a collared shirt.

We made a reservation on Open Table for a special birthday celebration. When we showed up for our reservation, we were wearing nice short slacks and collared polo shirts. We had been here many times dressed this way (nice clothes) and we were turned away for not wearing long slacks. The man who seated us was not very kind and... More

Food is exceptional and the entertainment is often provided by the clientele. Been a customer for 20+ years and haven't tired of it yet. Brian one of the best Maitre D's I've experienced, worth getting to know for the history of the place.

We had a great time at the Sunday afternoon jam session at Melvyn's Bar hanging out with the locals. Great place for a drink and some serious people watching but be aware it's very much a 45+ crowd so not one for the young!
