I am a vegetarian and was happy to see many choices. I also asked for substitutions (avocado instead of meat in a sandwich, for example) and... read more

Had heard good and bad reviews and have to say dinner was just average. Nothing special though in my humble opinion there is room for alot of improvement. Drinks were ordered first, had to inquire where they were after quiet of bit of time. Had to ask for bread, twice. Not all dinner entrees have a salad??? Only steak entrees... More

So many other reviews were so negative that we ate lunch with trepidation since we were staying at the resort and anxious to start soaking in the wonderful hot pools. I was pleasantly surprised by both the quality and quantity of the food and at a very reasonable price. We had great service and the staff was very obliging. We... More

We were looking for a place to eat after spending all day in the Joshua National Park. We called the restaurant to see how long they were open and asked if they would honor our coupon.

We came to Palm Springs area after visiting family in Southern California for a well deserved break. The place we chose to stay, Miracle Springs Spa, is living up to our expectations, but the Capri Restaurant is lackluster at best. My wife ordered the sausage and peppers, which was an okay entree. I did not have a great appetite, so... More
