After dining at another local restaurant and deciding to go elsewhere for desserts, we found Lucy based on online reviews. We stopped in the bar area and had a couple late night drinks and desserts. The restaurant is located in the main building at the Bardessono Resort. The entire complex is low-lit at night. The only way you even know Lucy is located there is by the menu on display at the entrance gate. Once you get up to the main building, you finally see the name and entrance sign. Just keep walking, you'll find it.

We did eat at the bar area, but there's also a super nice outdoor area that I would recommend trying out. We did not venture in to the main dining area, but I've heard it's lovely inside too.

Since all we had were desserts, I can only speak to their quality. But if the main entrees are anywhere near as well prepared as the desserts, it's worth a visit for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

We had three desserts (shared between four people) that evening. One was a lava cake. A little too cooked inside, but otherwise very good. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare - we were told it's baked fresh instead of recooked from a refrigerated state.

The other two desserts were a gelato based dessert and another chocolate dessert with a raspberry sauce and oats. I don't remember how they were named on the menu, but I've added pictures if you're interested in seeing them. Seemed like a nice place, wish we could have gone there for dinner too!

The restaurant would only give us a reservation at 8:30, which was odd as it was nearly empty when we arrived. The wine list did not feature many of our favorites so we explored some new options. Food was pleasant.

Dear Marty 911,

Thank you warmly for the kind comments on dinner experience at Lucy. It was pleasing to hear you enjoyed the food selections, please accept our apologies for the reservation issue. Sadly some cancellations had unbalanced our books and led to some empty tables; hopefully this didn't detract too much from your meal.
Your feedback on the wine list is a good one; we try to accommodate as many popular names as possible while still also offering the up and coming and unknown producers. if there is a particular vintner that you enjoy we would be happy to research and add to the list for your next visit.

It was a pleasure having you here at Lucy and we hope you make the long drive from Palm Desert again soon.

Regards,

Ross Wheatley

When we first arrived the ambiance is so calming. My husband and I were greeted by a very warm and friendly host, it was not to busy so we were seated quickly. We started with coffee, which was so delightful no sugar needed. My husband order the sliders w/fries and I ordered the lamb sandwich. Everything was seasoned well. I am very picky when it comes to lamb, very impressed with how wonderful it tasted. Absolutely delicious lunch, my only regret is they forgot to bring our bruschetta but with the portion of or meals we were too full to miss it, maybe next time.

We had our anniversary dinner at Lucy. We really liked the option of choosing either large or small portions. We choose two small portion appetizers and two small portion entrees and split each so that we could try more of the wonderful options. One of us has a food allergy and the restaurant really dealt with this seamlessly. The outdoor patio dining was beautiful with lots of small hanging lights providing wonderful atmosphere, though it became just a little too dark by the end of the evening.

The chef is incredible, as the food is mostly grown onsite and some locally sourced. Try the basic green salad, the dressing is perfect and the greens are picked within hours. Yumm.
