I've been here two times for breakfast. The restaurant in located on the ground floor of the Hotel Paseo... good location. On both occasions the food was perfect, the wait staff friendly and efficient and the dining area very comfortable. On each occasion there were two of us and both times we ordered breakfast... from the eggs and bacon, to ham and cheese omelette, to Eggs Benedict to Huevos rancheros.. were all prepared perfectly, great portions and served in a timely fashion. I really like this place... very kick back with comfortable seating and heated seating outside also. We got out of there on both occasions for around $40 for a couple and that price included pretty decent coffee. This is a nice place to take a friend and dish :).... plenty of parking across the street

Having heard of this restaurant which is fairly new, we decided to give it a try. Our local friends were not familiar with it as it isn't on El Paseo but off El Paseo. We were really happy we knew of it and had read of the owners, quite prominent in the business in that area. Décor is great and different than restaurants nearby, service was wonderful, and the food absolutely terrific, We especially liked that everything was a bit different in presentation. The ahi poke did not come in the all familiar tower, but rather was a decomposed presentation. Lobster cobb came already mixed together with huge pieces of lobster very obvious while some of the traditional elements of a cobb were missing but not missed. Quite frankly I didn't pay much attention to my husband's burger which he declared Wonderful, as I was so busy with my salad. We both did have thumbs up for the presentation of the strawberry shortcake with its basil ice cream and scattered pistachios all around. A true hit out of the ballpark for this place!

AC3 is an incredible find for anyone wanting 5 Star food, drinks, wines, and unsurpassed service at 2-3 Star prices. We travel all over and AC3 is a must visit when we are in Palm Springs. The staff does a great job and our favorite server ,DK, takes makes every experience one to remember. FYI the Lamb is to die for!!

Hector, our Server at Lunch was very friendly and had great recommendations --- the Lobster BLT is delicious as are the Black Truffle French Fries the 'table' insisted that we order :-)
