Description: Dedicated to food, drink, design, and community. Workshop Kitchen + Bar is Palm Spring's newest gem in the heart of the Uptown Design District. Located in the Class 1 Historic El Paseo building from 1926, Workshop’s Industrial chic interior gives the historic space a contemporary edge befitting the locale. Our kitchen is based around seasonal products from local farms, so the menu changes often. Although "Americana" may best describe the style of our food, influences are many. Favorite techniques in the kitchen include our wood-fired pizza oven, wood-fired grill, and custom sous-vide station. The bar looks mostly to American classics and carefully homemade basics. Original cocktails vary with the market's availability and our bartender's mood. * Please note: Booth seating is limited and is reserved for parties of 3 - 6. We will do our best to accommodate your requests, but make no guarantees. For special requests, please call us at (760) 459-3451. *

“Ultra-Modern + Fresh Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Reservations are a must. The Workshop Kitchen + Bar is located off the street in an alcove. The restaurant design is very modern and yet comfortable. They have community tables and booths. We shared a variety of the bowls. The ingredients were fresh and very flavorful. Great wine list also... I look forward to returning the next time I am back in Palm Springs.

“Best dinner we had in Palm Springs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

We love places with modern decor and fresh food. This fit the bill perfectly. Octopus carpaccio, calamari salad, and of course duck fat fries. Service was great, we walked in without a reservation and the worked to accommodate is even though it is obviously a popular place. Indoor and outdoor seating and modern concrete tables. Would love to be dining there again tonight.

“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Our dinner last night was ok. Amazing decor and service was good. The food was pretty mediocre .
My brusselsprout salad was too vinegary.
The scallops and risotto was too salty.
The chocolate torte was fine but nothing special.

“Chic, fun, exciting and most importantly...delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Having moved from Chicago to Palm Springs a few years ago, we have missed the city "vibe"...especially in restaurants. No doubt about it, Workshop Kitchen has captured that magic! Fun, gorgeous crowd, talented staff (especially chef owner, Michael and mixologist, Gregory!). The space, though concrete, severly modern and lofty is one of the warmest environments in town! Food is served large-tapas style. Try the burger, duck pate, sliced tenderloin...and especially the fries made in duck-fat....soooo good! All drinks are are work of art, but the punch bowls are the most fun! This place hit some bumps on their way to the top...but looks like they have it all worked out and are ready to become a landmark on the Palm Springs culinary circuit!

“boring food, good cocktails”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

this was one of the worst meals i ate in palm springs. how can you mess up kale sauteed in oil? i've never been known to leave vegetables (esp. kale) on my plate but i couldn't stomach the food here. the space is really lovely and the servers were very friendly but i would never eat here again.
