Fun setting in the desert

This is a chain but the food is suprisingly good. It was a good place to go in the El Paseo area with pre-teen kids as the food was nice but not over the top. Portion sizes were large and wait staff friendly. Only complaint the noise level - probably due to high ceilings

Upstairs from the retail shop, this place was really good. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was great. Lots of seating inside or out. Selection options for food were pretty wide and everything was done well.

Was extremely busy the night we were there, could barely hear yourself think do to the noise of music and chatter. Ok food, but nothing spectacular or terribly unique that we had.

Tommy Bahama's subtle island decor is fresh & modern. The crab bisque is superb, as were the scallop sliders. Very good bbq ribs & coleslaw. Excellent steak salad. Samuel was genuinely friendly & attentive without hovering. Great spot!

We've been trying restaurants we hadn't been to for restaurant week. Tommy Bahama's was the last on our list and our favorite. Outside upstairs you would never know you are on El Paseo. The view is terrific. This Sunday afternoon they have an awesome guitar player. He will be there through June, 2015. He can play anything. Music is piped... More

Had dinner outside on the patio and enjoyed a slight breeze with awesome views. Staff are all friendly and available. Ahi Napoleon is a delicious appetizer for a starter. We did not order our standard coconut shrimp which is crispy and yummy. Instead we shared the macadamia nut crusted snapper with asparagus and were delighted with the selection. We were... More

Good variety of choice at moderate price point, casual fun restaurant. Salads are very good, barbeque baby back ribs were wonderful. Portions were ample, food flavorful. Wide variety if cocktails.

Most people don't think of Tommy Bahama's as a restaurant destination. My wife and I have eaten in various locations in Florida over the years and, each time, in each location, the restaurant has exceeded expectations. However, when we ate in the Palm Desert (Paseo), we had a night of perfection. As most of us have learned, a great meal... More

We had reservations and did not realize that it was happy hour. They don't tell you, we just asked and then we were given an additional menu. Everything we ordered was good ahi tacos, coconut shrimp, crab salad, piña colada and the wonderful chocolate dessert. The pulled pork quesadilla is one to skip. Wonderful meal, wonderful location
