THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Dink's Restaurant & Ultra Lounge Restaurant Review

: With soaring windows, a sleek post-modern décor of steel, wood and glass, a sprawling patio, indoor and outdoor cabanas and a large, glistening central bar, Dink's is a place that cries out “Let's party.” The martini, mojito, margarita and mixed drinks list is almost as long as the food menu, which is extensive. Both are eclectic, with drinks ranging from the comparatively austere basil martini to such unabashedly outrageous concoctions as the S'more Tini (it involves chocolate and marshmallows). Entrées have Asian, Southwestern, Cajun, Caribbean and Italian influences. Portions are large, and the dishes are designed for sharing. Pizzas, sandwiches and burgers are also listed, so no one need feel they've strayed too far from home.

Valet: " You picked the best restaurant in Palm Springs
by DivaDiva on Tue Jan 27, 2009 8:00 pm
Dink's is a pretty place - very techno-artistic and luxurious, if in a trendy way that seems a bit dated less than a year after opening. It is obvious that a lot of time and money was spent on its creation. It's a place you want to like. The menu is large, and largely unappealing. Take, for instance, the "crab tower." It's really a little portion of avocado and papaya with a crab garnish. "Flying shrimp," an order of five small crustaceans hiding inside a triple layer of deep-fried peanut breading comes plated on a round of fresh pineapple that the server informed us is "soaked in Grand Marnier but grilled so that the alcohol burns off and the flavor stays." It doesn't. And although it's always nice to find fresh pineapple in a restaurant these days, Dink's menu - which, like its service, is more show than go - needs work.
