We have been to Melvin's many times and usually have a great meal. The service is top-notch and very old school! I was disappointed with the rib-eye steak the last time we were there. It was small, thin and not that tasty ( I wasn't completely convinced it was a rib-eye). I have had it here before, so I know... More

We love Melvyn's! A combination of a beautiful, refined restaurant and a fun, lively lounge with old school music (to be clear, the lounge and restaurant are separate rooms so very different environments). The service at Melvyn's is wonderful and old school...they are professionals! The food is beautifully done and many dishes are prepared tableside giving you a nice little... More

Went to a Saturday brunch with family. It was my 1st experience there, but the rest of my party had been multiple times. You definitely go for the experience of stepping into the past here. Impeccable service by loyal, dedicated staff. I didn't even have to ask for refills on my iced tea - it just happened! Great stuff there.... More

This restaurant smacks of the glamour and grandeur of Palm Springs of old. It was a favorite haunt of the "Rat Pack". The restaurant is beautifully appointed with fine linen, china, wait staff in tuxedos, and gorgeous lighting. Our dinners were outstanding; the prices were reasonable for a setting this elegant. The restaurant is small so be sure to make... More

If you want to step back to the days of the Hollywood set. This is the place. Excellent food and drinks. If you just want to have a drink in the bar and and sing along with the piano player. He is good

Had a wonderful dinner at Melvyns. The food, service and ambiance were all first class. Very old school. Very attentive. Feel like you need to dress up a little to eat here. Definitely no casual attire. Can't wait to return.

Our anniversary fell within the month we stayed in Palm Springs. We wanted a place that was special and not like the other places. Melvyn's turned out to be just right. There were five in our party and they seated us at a round table in the area that used to be the patio, but now has a roof and... More

The connection between the Chairman of the Board and Melvyn's is legendary. A much coveted event after an Sunday brunch which was delicious served by a waiter who had worked there for over 41 years! Matt the consummate maitre de arranged for the best seats in a lounge area where musicians played jazz and the Beatles and vocalists sang those... More

For those of you that grew up in the 50s and early 60s, this is exactly the kind of restaurant that our parents went to for a special night out with or without us kids. The current interior is a bit stale and dated, but somehow still oozes charm. And hey, there's even a pay phone in the men's room.... More

Dinner was delicious!! Loved the table side cooking. Service was exceptional. Rating on food/service alone, Melvyn's is a 5 star rating. However based on the "proper attire", no. We just got to Palm Springs after a 4.5 hour drive and we're ready for a lovely supper. After checking in to the hotel we stopped by the Restaurant to make dinner... More
