Lunch with friends

Second time for lunch here. Loved the food and had excellent service. It appears to have a really good happy hour. Going to give it a try some evening. They had live entertainment at lunch on aFriday. Nice touch.

Doesn't compare to Mama Gina's which is by far our favorite. The sliders were very good but skimped on the Ceasar salad. Had the ahi tacos were very good but quite small. Not sure we would return.

We visited friends who took us there. We had a great happy hour experience with snacks. We plan to go back for dinner on a future trip. We really liked the extended hours for Happy Hour service.

We joined a business colleague (and spouses) for dinner at Mitch's on a Saturday night. They have a gorgeous patio setting, which is quite large, and the tables are nicely spaced out so you have some privacy. From the moment we got there, I felt we were being hurried. I jokingly remarked that "we could be in and out of... More

Mitch's is a convenient place to go for a quick dinner. They serve wonderful sushi. The rest of the menu has some interesting and well prepared food too.

On a recent visit to Palm Springs, my wife and I saw this hopping restaurant and decided to try it out. We made reservations (highly recommended) but still had to wait almost 20 minutes to get seated. When we finally did, the service was slow and the food was less than inspired. We split jalapeño poppers app and that was... More
