Went here for dinner with my husband on our lodgings recommendation. The service was great and the outdoor patio looked really nice. It was a little chilly for us so we sat inside and the decor was a bit run down. I ordered the salmon and the fish itself was well cooked and a big portion. The sides it came... More

I have dined here quite often in the last 15 years. Never fails to please. Great food, staff, atmosphere. Prices on the higher end but well worth it.

Celebrated a birthday last night with a very nice dinner at Gastrognome. Ribs were "fall off the bone" good with very tasty BBQ sauce. Sirloin steak done just right. Accommodated no starch request with additional vegetables that were great. Wine very reasonably priced. Have full bar but we stuck to wine. Quiet during midweek. Will return soon.

Was in Palm Springs for a wedding and escaped with a friend to the mountains for some cooler temps. The hour+ drive was interesting and well worth it as the temperature there was 30 degrees lower than on the desert floor. We sat outside and enjoyed the air and the views. The service was crisp, food solid and enjoyable. All... More

Not my idea of fine dinning. Why would they call it a tuna melt if it has no cheese? Why would a cook burn the sandwich bread and not scrape the char off either piece and just flip them over so the customer couldn't see the blackened toast? Why would they charge $14.00 for it? Probably the same reason they... More

The service and food were excellent. Can't wait to come back and dine on the patio during warmer weather!

Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. Best BLTA we've ever had! The patio is very pet friendly. Bring a sweater for the patio because it's shady and cool. The inside of the restaurant is charming as well. This was a wonderful discovery in beautiful Idyllwild. We'll definitely be returning.

We decided on this charming, rustic restaurant due to Yelp reviews and we were not disappointed!! The kids had their hamburgers cooked perfectly and my husband had a pasta dish that was fantastic and I had they Turkey salad that was absolutely delicious!! It is a must eat at location when you visit Idyllwild!!

One of the more upscale restaurants in Idyllwild, the Gastronome had a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with a pretty complete menu and a full bar. I had a German dark beer called Köstritzer Schwarzbier that was very good, and my wife had a decent rum cocktail. For dinner she had a bowl of vegetable soup with avocado and feta and... More

We drove the Palms to Pines scenic drive and ended in Idyllwild around lunch time. The Gastrognome sold us with their pretty patio, stocked with lap blankets (it was cool in the shade) and sandwich-heavy menu. The French onion soup was great, the Cuban sandwich was pretty good - not as good as I've had in Florida, but totally acceptable.... More
