Melvyn's Restaurant Restaurant Review: This classic Palm Springs restaurant is located on the grounds of the delightful Ingleside Inn, seemingly sequestered from the crowds of Palm Canyon Drive. The dining room is timelessly elegant, with crystal chandeliers, linen-clad candlelit tables and comfortable chairs. Oysters Rockefeller and escargots are found alongside the signature dish, veal Ingleside. Caviar is available, too. Many items are prepared tableside by a tuxedoed waiter who has been flambéing here for many years. It’s a mixed crowd of old and young, perhaps because in spite of all the trappings of luxury, Melvyn’s also offers a low-priced, prix-fixe option in addition to the pricier à la carte menu. For an extra treat, you can request to sit in Frank Sinatra's chair and enjoy double-olive martinis.
