Fabulous Thanksgiving dinner on the back patio. Did not have a reservation because another restaurant played reservation games with us so we left and thanks to Eight4nine we ended up getting just a delicious/reasonable dinner. Special thanks to "Tom Collins" for his hospitality and kindness!

I had my wedding Rehearsal Dinner at Eight4Nine this past weekend and cannot speak more highly or recommend the restaurant more - Josh Calderon, who we worked with was truly wonderful - accommodating our large group (43 people), specific seating requests, menu adjustments, and even...making sure my 80+ year old grandparents had heaters right near them. The event staff and waiters were on top of everything - from making sure people had ALL the cocktails they could ever imagine, to spacing the meal so waiters weren't walking through the room while speeches were occurring. Additionally, guests came up to us to tell us how great the food was (we did Steelhead, Steak, and chicken). If you are looking for a space for a group dinner, party, event - look no further than Eight4Nine.More

Because we were fully vaccinated we chose to sit inside this beautiful restaurant. We are so glad we did. The decor is a fest for one's eyes. There are several rooms in which to dine and each one decorated spectacularly. We were three good friends...and having a long lunch. The food was AMAZING. My vegetarian friend had the Cauliflower Steak which she adored. The Cobb Salad was properly not tossed as it's supposed to be served. I had the Salmon Salade Nicoise - spectacular. Our server, Mike, was attentive and delightful. He fully engaged with us, which is what we like. We indulged in the Peach Creme Brulet - oh my! Just a wonderful experience and we can hardly wait to come back with our respective spouses. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.More

I visit Palm Springs every November for a reunion with good friends. Eight4Nine is one of my top two restaurants in town! I stop in for lunch at the bar or a more formal sit down dinner. I visit Eight4Nine numerous times during my weekly...visit. The ambiance is clean and bright. The art and photography is tasteful. The food is stupendous and the presentation impeccable. You won’t get a bad meal here. I introduced my friends to Eight4Nine and they rave about it. We’ve seen Hollywood celebrities eating there. Whether you have fish, pasta, chops or steaks, you will never be disappointed. Sitting inside or outside is equally elegant. The cocktails are delicious too.More

Well I would never return again the management is totally unprofessional. I must say it was my first and last time there. Since it was my first time there I was not aware it’s all about being outside not inside and to be honest inside...looks a bit tacky. So when I asked the manager if we could move outside he said they were totally booked outside. Now since I am in the restaurant business I pay attention to things and I noticed the entire time I was there tables stayed empty until we left they we could of been seated at. The reason I say the manager is unprofessional he said he would go see if there was a table available outside that he good move us to, needless to say he never returned to the table as tables sat outside empty. I must say the service started out with a bang the waiter staff came over right away in fact unfolding our napkins and put them on our laps so I thought to myself this was going to be special. Well half way through the dinner the service fizzled out. The same goes with the food the appetizers were great but the entrées fizzled out too. The bottom lime not a place I will be returning to.More

My partner and I recently hosted a dinner party to celebrate a special occasion in one of the private dining rooms at Eight4nine, and it was a great success. I worked with Josh, their event coordinator, and planned the event well in advance, working out...the details of the menu options, wine selections and appetizers. All of the guests commented on how delicious the food was and how the restaurant provided a wonderful ambiance and festive setting. Randy and Alex were fantastic servers and the entire staff worked hard to make it a memorable occasion. We will definitely use (and recommend) Eight4nine for our special events in the future, as well as going back there often for our regular dinners.More

Came with a group of 25 for my rehearsal dinner and 849 absolutely exceeded my expectations! The space and service was amazing and the food was absolutely outstanding. We may not be back with as large of a crowd, but we will absolutely be back!
