We really enjoyed our time at Melvyn's. It was a busy Saturday night and we were greeted right away and shown to a table for two at the back of the restaurant. "Great people watching table" our waiter said. There were several families enjoying a nice dinner together, groups of friends, and a couple celebrating their 30th anniversary. There is... More

Spent a special evening out with friends. Lovely classic restaurant with some older vehicles in the driveway to remind you of days gone by. Service was excellent, food was delicious. Dessert Cherries jubilee was wonderful to eat and lovely to see it being prepared.

Great Sunday Brunch. It's an old classic that's still going. The at our table was top notch and so was the service. Please don't change a thing.

This place is iconic in Palm Springs. Piano Bar man plays classic old hits-think Fly Me To the Moon. Bartender makes great Manhattans, and overall a really friendly staff.

Its been a few years since we've been to Melvyn's. Our friends had never been and we wanted to take them someplace special for their anniversary. They loved it as did we. The staff is beyond amazing. We started with Martinis and fried Brie with jalapeño jelly. Yum. The husbands had Steak Sinatra and we both had the signature chicken.... More

12 of us went here for my buddy's birthday. You pull up and they valet your car for you. We had a table reserved so we went right in. It really does remind you of back in the 50's. It's pretty cool. The menu is pretty large. Lots to choose from anything from duck to lobster. I had the filet... More

Do you like going back in time to "the good ol' days"? Enter this iconic setting and you'll feel like you've just stepped back into the 50's. The bar is a great place to have a cocktail and to beat the touristy crowds and summer heat. The restaurant staff can be a bit stuffy (as if you're in THEIR home)... More

If you book a reservation under Reservations, not under Open Table on Melvyn's website, there is no mention of a dress code. So, we got dressed up and went for dinner. We had booked our table under the Reservations tab. Upon arrival, the host refused us entrance because the men were wearing dress shorts. Another guest entered wearing very worn... More

WOW you are eating at a restaurant that all the biggies of Hollywood and Entertainment ate. Frank Sinatra had his own table here. Movies where filmed here. It is actually part of a cottage hotel compound. If only the rooms could talk. The food here is great. The service is even better. Dress up a bit as the waiters are... More
