"Your Pleasure is Our Pleasure!"

Please join us at Bar Cecil for a delightful evening. We welcome parties of 5 or fewer guests (limited space for parties of 5). Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate larger parties.

We book tables for 2 hours. Last dinner orders are taken at 9 pm and we close the bar at 10 pm. We've gone cashless and happily accept credit and debit cards.

Due to our small size, tables with separate reservations can not be combined. Please reserve online; if OpenTable is not showing availability, we're fully booked or it is more than 30 days out. We accept reservations up to 30 days out. Our bar is always walk-in and we open at 5 pm (the bar list is usually full around 4:30 pm).

We can't wait to have you as our guests! "Shall we?"

    WOW. Beef tartare is sweet and kind of creamy, was really wonderful and creative. So impressed with this place. Palm Springs needs great dining like this.

    This restaurant is definitely one that lives up to the hype. Excellent experience. Beautiful, if tiny, space, perfect but understated service, and outstanding food. A bit of a hassle securing a reservation, but well worth it. We will definitely be back for another special occasion in the future.

    The staff here were all so friendly, accommodating and lovely. We were able to snag a reservation for Friday night and I am so happy we did! The highlight was the pork chop entree - it was cooked perfectly and the chutney on top was delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try many more menu items.

    Cocktails, Cacio de Pepe, Steak tartare and lemon tart were very good. Deviled eggs and roast chicken are overhyped—just okay. Nice ambience, good service, but way too expensive for the experience. For that price, I prefer Copley’s.

    Was lucky enough to get a booking for a double date dinner. Was very excited to check out Bar Cecil. Ordered as follows 1/2 dozen oysters. 4/5. I got a lot of shell in each bite. But overall tasty. Red curry muscles- 5/5. Literally so tasty. Should have ordered a second set as my main entree. Highly recommend Steak Frits- 4/5. Steak was delicious. Fries left to be desired. Not much flavor. Halibut- 3/5. Plating was a bit odd. Fish tasted good. Size for price was a hard pass. Overall the experience was great. I’d say price vs. portion sizing is a bit frustrating. But the food was tasty. Ambiance was great. Very nice restaurant. Would definitely come back. But overall left a bit to be desired after with the first visit.

    Absolutely amazing yet again. This time food was 100% great! Flawless service drinks were outstanding. And service was top tier it was properly timed so we didn't have to hang out for 3 hours or more. Thank you!

    Consistently wonderful every visit. Friendly, experienced staff make you feel welcomed. I can't have dinner here without ordering the deviled eggs and the Brock, my favorite cocktail in the desert! Thanks to the entire staff for another memorable evening.
