Best place to sit outdoors in Palm Dessert

Tommy Bahama's was recommended to us from a local of Palm Dessert. We went there for lunch. The Mai Tai's are great along with the Fish Tacos and the view is awesome. A sure bet.

Our group of seven had lunch on the outdoor patio this week. The restaurant was extremely busy as it was Fashion Week on El Paseo. All luncheon dishes were very good as was the service.

Everything about our dinner here was top rate. Fantastic drinks and food. Service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is wonderful, hard to believe it is so close to the street, you feel much farther away. Visited here toward end of our trip and when we return for our annual week in Palm Desert next year, the question will... More

I was out with a cousin visiting for the tennis tournament. We were both very hungry and decided to eat here. I had eaten here before and enjoyed it very much. We were quoted a twenty minute wait and decided to do so rather then continue looking for an alternative. After about five minutes we were seated inside but close... More

Must have the "secret" Catalina. It's a fishbowl of gazpacho with shrimp and large hunks of crabmeat. Awesome. The Mango Habanero margarita is excellent, too. Both have a little heat which makes them perfectly delicious. The Scallop Sliders were seared perfectly, tender and sweet.

Great food in excellent location on El Paseo. Usually enjoy appetizers and drinks at the bar, but dinner menu is top quality.

Located in the heart of El Paseo, this restaurant has good food and ambiance. It is pricy, but the view is great!

The Tommy Bahama's Restaurant just over the store on El Paseo Drive is a landmark destination and a place to see and be seen. However the food is just OK and overpriced. Limited menu and a loooong wait for a table. It's in a beautiful setting but you can do better.
