Escena Lounge & Grill

100% love it
Modern fusion meets mid-century
Chef Oscar Ayala's culinary delights are paired with majestic views of the lush golf course and the towering San Jacinto Mountains. Great spot for lunch or dinner, but best for brunch!

      Awesome views, great service and mouth-watering food!
      Went here for Sunday Brunch with 9 other friends and we couldn't have been more pleased! Most of us had the Sunday Brunch special with bottomless mimosas, and let me tell you... the waiter made sure that our glasses were always filled! The food was delicious and the views, well... between the vistas of the golf course and the mountains, you'd be hard pressed to find a more scenic location. Noooby's review is more eloquent than mine, but let me tell you, this place is a hidden gem!

      Palm Springs most beautiful brunch and breakfast
      Spectacular, panoramic views of the mountains and delicious, reasonably-priced breakfasts and champagne brunches. Local gays in-the-know flock to this nearly secret gem. Located inside Escena, a gigantic, unbuilt housing development (only the clubhouse and golf course were completed). Sit in the grill's gorgeous, modernist interior or, better yet, on the outdoor terrace with jaw-dropping al fresco views. No reservations taken, so show up by 11am for Sunday brunch or you may have to wait. Top notch classics like steak and eggs, benedicts, huevos rancheros, lox and bagels and more. Prices are surprisingly reasonable (the champagne brunch is under $20). After breakfast, take an easy stroll through the adjacent, superbly-preserved mid-century modern heritage neighborhood of the El Rancho Vista "Barbara" tract of homes at the corner of Vista Chino and Gene Autry Trail.
