This is truly an experience! The view from Mt. San Jacinto down into the Coachella Valley and Palm Springs is beautiful, and amazing at night. Be sure to take the tram up to the restaurant with plenty of time (at least a couple of hours)...More

Expensive, terrible service and attitude from the host. The food was dreadful. Overcooked burgers, stone cold fries, soup that had mounds of salt in it. Slow service even though it wasn't busy..no excuse for this. The view is fabulous though.

Definitely an amazing view. Got up in time for the sunset. Waited quite some time for someone to take our order even though the place was not very busy. Finally got our order placed and again waited a long while for everything to show up....More

Went here for lunch and had a window table. Nice view for sure and that definitely takes the prize. Ambiance outside of the view is just ok. Food was average but quite expensive. Certainty not a place to go for value. Hard to recommend.

We made a reservation several days in advance for dinner at 6 for our anniversary. We arrived on time and were seated in the upper tier away from the window. Should I have said something? Probably, but I didn’t want to ruin our dinner by...More

Rode the aerial tram up at night for a 7pm weeknight reservation. The restaurant was very quiet. Menu that we studied on lower level (entrance) for Peaks was different than actual menu in restaurant, which was disappointing. Bar closed earlier than on schedule so we...More

Double date weekend! I had the turkey club. Not sure i would call it a club.... but it was good. The bread was fresh, chicken cooked nicely, lettuce was fresh, aioli and avocado spread was very good. Honorable mention from the rest of the group....More

I did not really expect too much taking a cable car up a mountain... how wrong was I! The ride up is mind-blowing, informative and the pine forest at the top, breathtakingly beautiful and serene. I took quite a hike and returned to the station...More

I think you would want to see the sunset from the balcony on the back side, but probably not the best view, you are on the peak looking down into the valley but the sun sets on the back side of that mountain.

Yes the tram is the only way there. The restaurant is in the same building as the tram 'station' when you get to the top.

I don't believe their is a dress code at lunch. We were there in tshirts, shorts and running shoes. Not sure about the dinner service but I suspect it is the same.
