"Been here many times and the food and service is always very good. The reason for 4 stars on the food is because my salmon was a little dry but other than that, everything else was wonderful. Dan our server was excellent in being very attentive but not intrusive. Pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable which made the dining experience wonderful. Great patio views."

Seasonal & Delicious.<br /><br />With Paul Martin's American Grill, Brian Bennett and restaurateur Paul Fleming have realized a long-nurtured dream to create the restaurant "we've always wished was in our neighborhood." <br /><br />At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin's aims to serve diners the best ingredients with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors. The deep California-centric wine list twists and turns, by glass or bottle, through the Golden State's vineyards, with an occasional stop for an Oregon Pinot Gris or a Washington dry Riesling. Behind Paul Martin's elegantly rustic bar is an interesting array of craft beer and spirited cocktails with fresh garnishes. Good times and thoughtful food are a way of life at Paul Martin's American Grill.

"Been here several times and have really like the food, service & ambience. The only reason I gave the food 3 stars is because the food we ordered was not available and it was only 5:30pm. Disappointing to say the least. The alternate dish I received was not very appetizing and disappointing. Will definitely give the place another try as we have enjoyed our visits in the past."

In the early 60s Palm Springs’ Purple Room at Club Trinidad became the sweet spot of the swinging supper club scene. Cats like Frank and Dino hung with their pals to eat, drink play. The Purple Room re-opens with its pedigree legacy in mind. We embrace the style, the carefree and creative spirit of that era. With a nod to its history, we will be making history of our own. We are one of two original Rat Pack hang outs left in the desert today. We have brought back the style and class of the purple room, offering quality entertainment for the desert. Like our big brother,TRIO Restaurant, it’s a local favorite a place where you can come in feel at home. <br /> <br />Celebrity sightings. You never know who will be at the PR, so we ask that you allow our guests to enjoy themselves.<br /> <br />What happens at The Purple Room … Stays at The Purple Room.<br /><br />It’s where Palm Springs Plays!

"You feel like you are transported back in time to the era of Greta Garbo, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe days with the vibe at this place. Good entertainment, good food, good place to relax with a cocktail."
