So you're looking for the best restaurant in the Coachella Valley, then don't miss this premier environment. Best seating would be in a booth, on the patio or at the bar.

We visited with 3 couples. Everyone was happy with service and food. Quite busy even for a Sunday night. I had the filet and was very good and cooked like I ordered, rare plus. We also ordered the Sirloin and was also good. Caesar salad was also good. It is a little pricy.

We ate out on the veranda by heaters and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As a couple, we share our meal. As a small plate, we had the mushroom ravioli, then the demitasse soup tasting which paired cream of asparagus, cream of tomato and cream of mushroom. All exceptional. The multicolored beet salad and the John Dover fish special finished out our... More

We had our company dinner here. It was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. Despite the fact that there were about 30 of us, the service was magnificent. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive. The ambiance was wonderful and the meals were absolutely perfect. We had the sea bass which was perfectly prepared. They also have... More

We went out for dinner with friends to the Cork Tree. I is usually on the top of their game but not so today. The server was inattentive and difficult. Our fiend likes very good wine and she offered him an inferiors cab sav to the one he ordered. That got sorted out quickly though. We could not do substitutions... More

We had a great meal here on a Sunday night. We had steaks and seafood and everything was good. Great wedge salad and wine list. Service was very good.

We sat in the bar area at a high-top table. Drinks are full price but there's a good bar menu. You can watch sports TV while dining. We find Cork Tree, in the bar, a little expensive but have enjoyed visits.

We arrived at Palm Desert on Tuesday night around 7pm without a reservation, but they were quick to accommodate us. We enjoyed the patio with the heaters and excellent entertainment (soft guitar--not overwhelming). I had the scallops, husband had the Caesar salad and salmon. Both were delicious--we couldn't eat it all and it was even better the next day for... More

Every time we are in Palm Desert we always dine, at least once, at Cork Tree. Duck Tacos Confit are always delicious and I've never found them anywhere else. The lobster bisque is to die for awesome though it wasn't available when we where there this week. Pork shank tasty and the seafood boullibaise (?) was brimming with lobster, shrimp,... More

Patio is relaxing. Fountain blocks traffic sounds. Numerous palm trees. Wait staff polite. I had the duck. Tough and nothing to write home about. The mushroom rissoto side was skimpy on the mushroom and way too heavy on a smoked cheddar ... odd combo. My wife had the sea bass which was well cooked but the supposed miso ginger profile... More
