Appetizers and main Mexican dishes were delicious as were the Cadillac margueritas. Service was excellent. Entertainment (singer) was a little too loud for diners hoping to converse.

Visited this place with my wife while holidaying in Palm Springs in July and can only say I will not be back. On entering the restaurant first impressions are that someone had forgotten to switch on the lights, very dark and foreboding probably done so that you cannot see what you are eating! Started of with a large margarita which... More

I have ate here 2 times already in the past with friends usually 4 to 5 people. We love their chips and salsa. The live singing is great especially when you know the lyrics. Both times we have had good experiences can't say great. The first time I went was around 8pm. The tables by the bar were packed but... More

The restaurant has great Mexican food in a garden that looks like it is straight out of Japan. The menu is from all over the world, but we stuck with the Mexican food. The fiesta margarita was awesome. I have issues with tequila and there was no problem here. We then had nachos that were excellent and I had the... More

After visiting several Mexican restaurants in the Palm Springs area, seeking a desirable place to hold a rehearsal dinner for approximately 40 people, my husband and I literally stumbled upon this restaurant while driving by. The exterior was very well kept with plenty of parking, which was important after driving around downtown for half an hour looking for a parking... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant and had a great experience! Our waitress Magdalen had knowledge of the menu and suggested things that we should try. I had the two item combo with a shredded beef taco and a chile rellano and my wife had a Carnegie Masada taco and a shrimp enchilada. Everything was excellent and so... More

I love sushi and have been disappointed with the selection in Palm Springs, my husband brought me to a Mexican restaurant and they have a sushi bar. I ordered the spicy yellow tail roll, and to my surprise it was very good, fresh yellow tail, professionally wrapped into a roll with just the right amount of spice, to heat up... More

Margarita's provides a relaxing alternative to the more crowded Mexican places along Palm Canyon and, if anything, the food is as good or better and the staff far friendlier (Vasili was our server and struck just the right balance of being attentive without being in our face). The dining area is airy and spacious with a high pyramid cathedral ceiling,... More

We had never been here before but friends recommended it. It is a very interesting restaurant, they have a full sushi bar, a Mexican menu, and American menu. They have a large bar and the décor is very nice. We opted for the Mexican menu the salsa was very good and the meals were good, large portions but typical American... More
