Yes this place has a nice patio with pretty little twinkling lights. Yes the keyboard player is friendly and entertaining but the rest is problematic. Let's start with the welcome from the hostess.

This restaurant has the best outdoor dining experience in the desert area. The outdoor area is a large courtyard scattered with numerous light wrapped trees, and encircled by private dining nooks. The area has ample heaters for the cool nights. The menu has an excellent continental selection and we have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. For... More

This is a very nice restaurant with consistently good food at reasonable prices. The outdoor venue is spectacular with lighted trees, music and excellent service. My only gripe is the menu never changes and there are very few specials. This inhibits me from going often

My cousin, who lives in Palm Springs suggested this restaurant, and what a great choice. Everything was great and if I lived in Palm Springs, I would be regular.

We had Christmas dinner at this beautiful restaurant and were lucky enough to get a table on the outdoor patio as it was beautiful with all the lights in the trees and plenty of heaters to keep us warm. The menu was a set menu but had plenty to choose from. We had rack of lamb and the duck and... More
