    Terrible experiece. Service was incredibly slow. Our waiter took over 20 minutes to get us a round of drinks because he “forgot”. My wife ordered a “fresh squeezed” juice that they brought to the table in a plastic bottle. It obviously came from the local grocery store. Our main dish salads were close to 20$ but it was a side salad portion. The table they put us at was under this tent that trapped the heat. It was really uncomfortable. When I asked to be moved they said they couldn’t even though the tables I wanted to be seated at didn’t get filled the entirety of our visit. I would never come back. Quite frankly any restaurant that’s connected to a hotel in the Palm Springs area is a rip off. You should go to a stand alone restaurant if you plan to visit this beautiful area.

    We had brunch and food had good flavors however food was just warm & not hot . Loved that they offered a special Mother’s Day menu along with their regular fare. Regarding their service, Server Karla was very friendly, attentive and was the highlight, rest of staff hustled trying their best in turning tables and assisting guests. We sat outside by pool. Guests jumping in pool splashing us , as tables were far too close to pool. It was very clean and tidy however it looks a lil run down. Needs to be refreshed with new paint & new umbrellas. Koi pond needs to be cleaned ASAP. Your 1st impression as you walk into entrance of hotel is the overwhelming smell of the uncleaned KOI pond and is the last impression as you gag on your way out. This place is sweet and charming and has the potential of being a GEM.

    Was really looking forward to dining here but everything just didn't work. Nice setting, typical Palm Springs but lacks a bit of charm. Service was not bad but the kitchen was very slow considering there were only 2 other tables seated. The double breaded pork chop was very dry (server mentioned the kitchen likes to make sure the pork is well cooked) the turnips were tasty and the corn bread was good but broken into tiny crumbs and not enough for flavor or texture. A nice small portion of it would be much nicer or at least a bit bigger crumbs, or like croutons. My husband had the salmon which was very good but again the composition of the dish needs a lot more attention at the proportions and what's on the plate. The salmon was topped with the gremolata and underneath was about a teaspoon of the poblano crema and that's it. Nice asparagus, potatoes or any other vegetable needs to be there especially for how much it is. Don't think we'll be back or recommending this place.

We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again and provide a better experience. Best, CHI CHI at the Avalon Hotel Palm Springs Management Team.

    A fading atmosphere that feels unloved translates to the food, but not the service. Feels like it needs a downsizing and consolidation of menu with a good restaurant consultant. Small menu, higher quality would be nice.
