Four of us went there yesterday for Brunch and it was Very Busy which is Good for one of our businesses here in the Palm Springs area !! The food was Good after we waited for approximately half-hour ...for outside seating as we also had a canine with us. I will have to say, We were not impressed with the service provided as we had to "ask" for our server to come take our order after sitting for some time. One person opted for the "bottomless mimosa" & constantly had to ask for refills. Upon finishing, we "had" to Askfor the check. All in All it was "fair to OK" as an experience. See More

Food and view's were great but the service was terrible. We had to get up and go inside to retrieve our own condiments after refills on our coffee or water after requesting. It wasn't ...until our complaining to the host that our server made another appearance after almost a hour. See More

Love this place. Though I have been extremely disappointed with the restaurant the past few times. For the 4th time in over a month I have been turned away by management after trying to take guests dinner. This past Friday once again we arrived at 742 pm and we were turned away saying the kitchen was closed again. We asked why? They said they were closing early. I asked, what time do u close tonight and she replied 9 pm. I then asked, why can't we have dinner then? She said they had two large parties they didn't expect. One party of 20 was finishing up so we didn't understand why we could eat for just two of us. This happened to me two weeks prior and two before that as well closing 2 hours before their closing time. Not once were we compensated for a return visit. I was very annoyed! If they post hours then patrons expect them to honor their hours. Very disappointed. So warning to all. If you are planning on dinner after 730 I'd call first before you head over and waste your time. See More

The location and views are remarkable.

The service is friendly and accommodating. ...

The food is exceptional - the beer and wine list is pretty extensive.

The menu might seem a little expensive, but the quality is outstanding and is as good as many higher priced venues, plus the menu price is well offset by very reasonable bar prices. Overall I find the place to be a bargain.

Love the setting. The service was a little iffy. I ordered the Paella and it had no flavor. But that's not the place to order Paella. Tasted the Salman and it was delicious. They make a great martini

Unfortunately, their service and responsiveness have declined, especially for booking events. Great location and very good food, but indifferent customer service and zero responsiveness! Will have to events elsewhere... See More

It's the same old song. Dirty menus, literally food caked on them. Tables decaying where the particle board is not standing up to the moisture. Upholstery on the chairs dirty. It needs a manager that ...calls attention to details and gets the employees to see how things should be. How long does it take for the reservations staff to wipe off a dirty menu? Oh, that tired old menu.......needs to be changed as I said in my last review. How many meatloaf sandwiches can one eat? If it weren't for the view and the captive audience of the residence here this place would be history. It does have a great view. Service was so so but well intended. See More

Sunday Brunch Beware. Food is great. Eggs Benedict is awesome. Service is terrible (very slow). If you are not in a hurry and want good food with great mountain views eat here.

Awesome food, great service! Bottomless mimosas were perfect.
And the view is breath taking! Definitely recommend eating outside!

Its always hit and miss at Escena Lounge and Grill.. Sometimes its great and sometimes it just cant get anything right.. Yesterday it was one of those days, service poor, food quality was mediocre at salad was not crisp, breads for sandwiches were white bread consistency.. the cole slaw was not fresh, and needed to ask for everything.. and the worst of it. the views of the mountains and the courses are amazing.. we were looking forward to sitting outside,, but they were understaffed and did not open the terrace, total disappointment See More

For the third year Escena has hit it out of the park with their NYE dinner our visit is now a family tradition. There were 6 of us so our selections varied, and all were excellent.

First courses i...ncluded lobster, or figs. The second, poached pear or Cesar salad. The lobster, sea bass and filet we chose for the main course were outstanding. And dessert choices were equally satisfying

Our waiter was a major disappointment and fell flat on service. Forgetting us entirely, and not bring our first course so reminded him and ended up with course one and two together. We had to ask for spoons and for steak knives and with course someone received the wrong course.

We dine at Escena regularly and his service has not been such an issue but he was having a major bad day yesterday

Happy Friday! The grill's main patio will close at 2pm today (Friday) for a special event. The main dining room will be open for a la carte dining. Back to normal hours tomorrow!

We know you'll all be docked in front of a TV on #SuperSunday so we'll be open 6:30a-3p for brunch only. We hope you win all the cash in the square game!

The Grill will close early today due road closures in the area. On the sunnier side, the forecast is looking gooood for the next several days, so stop by for views of snow capped mountains over a meal or a drink!

Stop by tonight for some tempura salmon tacos. A little cabbage, a little pico de gallo, a little tangy dill sauce, and a lot of YUM! 👌
