OMG if your in a rush or want to experience good customer service pass on this place. Self seating, sat for quite some time just to get any service than ignored. Table was dirty when sat down and when he finally came over didn't even clean it.

One would think a dining establishment would read their customers' reviews to help improve the customer experience. This is obviously not the case with this restaurant. Slow service, overcooked frozen hamburger "pucks", stale buns, all at an outrageous price. Would we go back. No. A better dining experience can be had grabbing a candy bar and a bottle of water...

Quick seating in the beautiful outdoor space of sunny Palm Springs Airport past security, and that's where the good stopped. Two wrinkled menus on the table stand for four guests. Very few or no vegetarian options. Two choices on kids menu: grilled cheese or chicken tenders. Long wait as we eyed the clock wondering whether we have time prior to... More

We stop here for lunch every time we depart from Palm Springs to head home. The food is always fresh, tasty, and the service is always good. They always have a soup special and sandwich specials as well as fresh healthy salad selections.

Service is a foreign concept at this restaurant. Had to go to the front and ask for two ice teas. Had to ask for the check and it was not provided, as promised, so I had to go inside to pay.

The biggest mistake I made was not searching on TripAdvisor beforehand to check out my options at the airport. Before our departing flight, our family decided to eat at this bistro to eat beforehand. We ordered a variety of items from the menu. Server was attentive and pleasant when in front of us, but was difficult to track down (even... More

Our flight was delayed and we needed to buy dinner at the airport. We went up the escalator of the Sonny Bono terminal and found the place on the right to be full, so we went back downstairs and opted to eat at Celebrity Bistro instead. Wish we had waited for a table to open up at the other place.... More

We ordered the most delicious lunch….a Reuben Hamburger sandwich! Perfectly cooked to order and juicy. We may have to go to the airport more often!

I have ate in a lot of bad airport joints but this one captured the essence of bad service, bad food, and overpriced. We ordered 2 beer, and fish tacos to share plus 2 quesadillas for the kids. The bill was $78, the quesadilla cheese was a step up from cheese wiz and we were pressed to inhale our food... More
