Accommodating in many ways.

For this meal we had 6 family members, all hungry! The menu items are prepared well each time without a hitch. Two of the group ordered the nightly special Mahi with some type of citrus salsa. All where over done and dry. Management took care of this disappointment. My meal of Beef Stroganoff... read more

If you are a man, I wouldn't recommend this place. Fancy fussy "gourmet" food ... all show no substance. Owner is pretentious.

Went on the spur of the moment to this restaurant I had heard rumors about. What a delightful surprise. The restaurant is intimate, upscale, and not bad in price considering the quality of the food. The beet salad was delicious with just the right amount of sherry vinaigrette. The wedge salad was equally as good, with a blue cheese dressing... More

I had an excellent dinner here. Started with a Caesar Salad made with kale instead of romaine lettuce. Dining companions warned me that kale is "tough and chewy" but I wanted to try it anyway. The kale was quite good, and I'd order that salad again. My main course, salmon, was cooked perfectly as I'd ordered it. Service was cordial... More

The mussels were awesome. My friends each liked their choices as well. Trying to get extra bread though was difficult. Pleasant surroundings but boring decor. Great service from our waitress.

Had a wonderful dinner on 12/23/14 at Cello's. The food, service and decor were terrific! Kudos to Tom and Bonnie for this gem of a resturant!

The regular, continental menu is great, but the happy hour menu is perfect for light eating. The meatballs are the best. Nice owners, staff and ambiance. Of course the homemade limoncello is a must experience.

This is one of the best restaurants in the Palm Springs area that you have to know about to even find. Perhaps its location in Cathedral City has much to do with that, but this husband and wife owned establishment never disappoints. The dinning room is small but charming, service is excellent, but the food is the true stand out.

Self-described as an American Bistro, we've had some great meals and some that were just a little off. Food is generally tasty, if occasionally bland. Service can be a bit spotty, too. Last time it was great until desert, then the bill came unbidden while we still had secret on our plates and with no offer of coffee or an... More

Great deal on happy hour special menu. 3 course meal for $20. My husband had chicken, liked it a lot. And the 3rd course brownie was FANTASTIC! I had the duck with cherry sauce, nice and crispy. Menu said sweet potato souffle, but it came with tasteless mashed potatoes. Big servings, we brought enough back for another meal. Pleasant place,... More
