After 4 1/2 years in the desert and trying many great restaurants, we were disappointed in the bar food at the Cork Tree restaurant in Palm Desert. The plates at $16 each were the tiniest portions we’ve ever experienced. The food was mediocre and overpriced.

Yes, they do, but they have daily specials and 2 of us got the specials so don’t set your mind before you get there as the specials were absolutely terrific.

We had a private area for a group of 6 at Cork Tree. Call them and see about accommodating a group of 14. They were very helpful. Enjoy
