Our friends who frequent this area of the Coachella Valley more than us recommended this restaurant for dinner one night. In their defense they also believed we could stick around after dinner and enjoy the music that is played here on weekends. That is their only defense.
The entrance takes you right into the bar where the music is being played. The hostess greeted up promptly and brought is into a dining room where we were seated. The music, a guy with an organ and a synthesizer, sang away loudly through the opening into the bar.
Service by our server was good. The attending bus boy was even better. Prompt to refill water glasses, ever present to pick up empty dishes, the service was far and away the highlight of the evening. On this Friday night, however, my first pick of the Chef's special was gone. My second pick off the menu was also not available. My third pick, an entree salad finally got me some food.
My wife's steak entree was tough. She had ordered medium well, she got well. Her accompanying potatoes were average. The asparagus spears were under cooked. She did not eat her whole meal.
Finally, with an expensive price paid for a below quality of meal, the bar was so crowded with senior citizen hipsters, we elected to leave. I am in my late fifties but this crowd made me look young. I won't ever return to The Nest unless I am writing a book about lonely senior citizens.
