The Best Palm Springs Restaurants

Here are our 9 picks for the best Palm Springs restaurants to visit in 2020.

  1. At the top of our list is always Le Vallauris. It’s conveniently located across the street, so we often recommend it to our guests, but this French Classic has yet to disappoint even the most discerning of visitors.  Enjoy classics like sauteed white fish in a buttery mustard mousseline, crispy duck glazed with port wine and figs, and a charred fillet with potato gratin, all while you savor your time on their beautiful patio.
  2. If you’re looking for fresh and inventive cuisine, head to Johannes, where you’ll enjoy an eclectic selection of menu items.
  3. Head to the cleverly named Tac/Quila for a modern take on upscale Mexican cuisine, featuring delicious dishes like white fish ceviche, roasted chicken with mole negro, and baked Branzino. You’ll also find your favorites there, like al pastor and carne asada tacos, and of course exceptional margaritas.
  4. Nosh on some of Palm Springs’ best sushi at Sandfish by Chef Engin Onural. Aside from incredibly fresh and well-prepared sushi, they also have an extensive selection of Japanese Whiskey’s worth tasting your way through.
  5. For some of the best farm-to-table eats in all of the Palm Desert, you can’t go wrong with Workshop Kitchen + Bar.  You’ll find plenty of yummy small plates to share, including things like a sweet and savory shaved Brussels sprout salad, duck leg confit, and a wood-fired ribeye for two with bone marrow butter.
  6. If you’ve been craving Nashville Hot Chicken, you’re in luck!  You can enjoy this southern classic right here in Palm Springs at Blackbook, which also hosts a beautiful open-air bar and great drinks.
  7. Share a few plates and enjoy the ambiance at Del Rey, which features a delightful combination of Spanish and Mediterranean fare in an incredibly beautiful setting.
  8. You can’t go wrong with simple and delicious Vietnamese fare at Rooster and the Pig. The frequent lines at this unassuming strip-mall favorite are indicative of just how good the food is!
  9. For something truly romantic and whimsical, head to Copley’s on Palm Canyon, which is located on the former Cary Grant estate. The food is delicious, yes, but dining in the garden and taking in the views is simply divine.
