Our dinner at Europa was once again delicious and the service excellent! This time two of us had the steak and one the scallops. Not a crumb was left on our plate. I wanted to substitute the potato side (I hate rosemary!) and the chef gave me fingerling potatoes instead, which were not on the menu. Expensive, but worth the... More

Are you escaping to Palm Springs for a romantic getaway, celebrating a special event, or hoping to kindle a spark? Then this is the place for you. It's a foodie paradise, with food prepared by a chef who clearly loves his work and served by waitstaff who understand what fine dining is about. The setting is romantic and traditionally European...

Wonderful food in a pretty, refined setting. The apps were flavorful and our entrees were perfectly seasoned and cooked - especially the scallops. The only downside was the wait, which they warn you about ahead of time as all food is prepared just for you. If you have kids with you it is tough but worth the wait.

Really nice restaurant week visit. There is a rich history with this place that the staff quickly and proudly shares with guests making a fun sidebar. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is old and eclectic in a good way. The wine list is also a+. Staff are out of this world accommodating, professional and courteous.

The chef is great and they will do everything to accommodate you if you have any dietary restrictions. It's best to let them know when you make the reservation if u have any dietary restrictions so they can make that special dinner just for you 😊 I can never get enough of this place and have to make a visit...

Romantic, secluded, charming, historic, gourmet, attentive, and expensive. Wednesday evening and the place was almost deserted, there were only 4 tables occupied with a total of 9 customers in the time we were there for dinner. It is the type of place you go for a special occasion or to treat yourself to fine food, ambiance and being catered. There... More

We didn't want to wait in the long line for Cheeky's so walked up the street to Europa and got in after about a 10 minute wait. We sat out on the beautiful patio in the courtyard area. Great choices for brunch - eggs, omelettes, pancakes, french toast. Coffee is delicious as is fruit juice. Great, relaxing location and excellent... More

Yelena, our server, was the best. She made our dinner an enjoyable event. Her description of the entrees made our mouth water. She was very knowledgeable on the food and wine. We enjoyed the aerated and slightly chilled red wine upon her recommendation. The food was fresh and tasty: the house salads and dressing, the soup, the entrees, and the... More

My friend and I had dinner there last Saturday night. OMG! What delicious dinners. Apparently, they hired a new cook who has cooked up a new menu. It is delightful. Beautiful salads for starters and then the main dishes. My friend had the Orange Demi glazed Sea Bass -- cooked to perfect -- and I am a San Diego fish... More
