My husband and I dined here for our anniversary last September. The food was outstanding as well as the service. The cocktails were excellent. For our appetizer we had the sweet potato fries. My husband had the swordfish and I had the beef tenderloin. Both...meals were outstanding. Can’t wait to go back the next time we are in town.More

Beautiful beautiful venue. Speechless beautiful. It is worth special events. It is located in a very fancy and yet tastefully decorated villas only luxurious boutique hotel. The space is Spanish colonial revival style. The restaurant is in front of the hotel pool and it has...a second floor which is even more beautiful with an amazing fireplace. We had dinner there and it was so romantic. Cocktails are to die for. We typically don’t like Mexican food but we were so blown away by the food! Even the shrimp cocktail and guacamole and chips were delicious. For mains we had crab stuffed peppers and scallops. Very flavorful.More

We held Rehearsal Dinner for 33 on upstairs outdoor patio of Azucar called Sugar High. Great food choices and served hot, delicious and by friendly servers. Outdoor setting was magical for non California guests and lounge seating added to the special event. But you want...great food and we got great food. Event manager made sure everything went smoothly.More

Delicious food and amazing service! We ate here multiple times during our stay in Palm Springs. Loved the beef tenderloin and cauliflower risotto one night and the scallops and house salad another. The Ahi Bruschetta was delicious, as well. Good portions, great flavors and amazing...drinks (must try the Pomplemousse Spritz).More

La Serena Villas is purely majestic. My twin and I decided to throw a private party for 35 guest and it was beyond fabulous. I would first like to acknowledge the GM Laura. She was always available, she has great communications, she is incredibly warm,...and detailed oriented. I cannot say enough about her because she went above and beyond to make sure our party went without a hitch. I had shipments made to La Serena Villas for our party. Laura set up all the decorations and made sure that every detail was made. She was like a GM and event coordinator. The hotel itself is majestic, clean and is perfectly placed next to the mountains. The food for 35, was exquisite, every one couldn’t stop talking about the food. My crab Pablano was to die for, and I am still thinking of it. The entertainment from Olivia and Noah set the perfect mood, and was serene and fun. And the staff was equally as professional and provided the best service to our guest. My party did not stay on property but my next stay will certainly be booked here, purely from the wonderful experience The hotel/ Azcuar restaurant provided!!! This is a 5 star across the board!!! Laura, from the bottom of our hearts thank you. Our 40th bday was perfection. Xoxo Twins Christina and Nichole:)More

Great spot off the beaten path in PS. Beautiful views from the rooftop deck and fantastic, friendly service from Mario and Oscar. Had the sweet potato fries, watermelon salad, salmon entree with risotto and asparagus. All very flavourful and well prepared. Note to management: Hang...on to Mario. Great personality. Hang on to Oscar. Quiet but so attentive and thoughtful.More

One is surrounded by the mystic of the Palm Springs atmosphere when one dines at Azucar. Interpretive Mexican tile combed with pool or roof service, it is a delight. However the food reaches too far into the creative realm and doesn't quite reach the balance...its efforts deserve. The house salad exploded with sweetness without any other taste involved thus over whelming the ingredients. On the other had the spinach salad came through with flying colors of soft cheese and other ingredients even though we ordered a shaved Brussel sprout salad. The stuffed poblano disappointed as there was way too much going on above the pepper and not enough vegetable in the pepper, although the filling was delicious. The sword fish was unevenly over cooked and also had a topping that hid the results. We left it uneaten on the table. The service however was friendly and impeccable. We hope they work on their culinary outcomes because the restaurant is inviting and fun.More
