We went back to Palm Springs and had to re-visit this place. The old Palm Springs feel and charm. Matty or Brian will be at the door. They are the best Captains around. Always make you feel like family, like you belong. I'd recommend going for dinner on a Thursday evening as it seems that the place isn't as busy... More

Sunday afternoon at Melvyn's is a must...excellent local professional talent...Great musicians and singers. The drinks and food are great too. They have an excellent restaurant in another area away from the music. The entertainment is free...you may tip however. Definitely a great greet and meet place...it's small inside so get there early. Live entertainment also during the evenings,

We were taken here by friends to celebrate our one year anniversary. I was not prepared for the time warp into which we were stepping. Old Palm Springs is very glamorous and many of the patrons of this restaurant were obviously around to witness it. At 55, I was not the youngest person in the place, but it was close!... More

Melvyn's Lounge has entertainment and pours a good drink ! It's located at the historic Ingleside Inn which has a lot of interesting old history. Old movie star hangout.

Melvyn’s/Ingleside Inn Palm Springs, CA Dining at Melvyn's was an absolute delight. My husband made dinner reservations as a surprise for me when we stayed in Palm Springs for a few days celebrating our 22nd anniversary. From Brian, who greeted us with a great smile at the front door, to all the waiters and help staff in full tuxedos and... More

A throw back in time. 1950 revisited. The bar here is fun, very lively and seems to have some people that visited here in the 50's. We were there on a friday evening after dinner and the bar was packed. They had a piano player and singer - both added that 50's vibe. If your in PS and you want... More

Had lunch with a good friend recently at Melvyn's Restaurant. There is a very nice garden room that is bright and cheerful and a great place to sit for a nice lunch. The service was attentive and efficient. We each had the Cobb Salad which they are noted for and it is delicious with fresh ingredients tossed table side. Served... More

Nice place for Sunday brunch with the family. Excellent customer service. Most of the food was good like the Eggs benedict and the Chicken salad. The orange juice and deserts had the taste of sitting in the fridge too long. Would consider trying them again for dinner. Quite a busy place for lunch in the August heat.
