This was a very disappointing restaurant. From the food to the service, very lacklustre and there are so many great choices for Mexican food in the area, keep looking…..

After I go home and change my clothes. I noticed it was reeking as if I worked in KFC's kitchen. Their exhaust system over fryers doesn't seem to work well. It's been going on for few years now. I'm visiting the place less because of stinky clothes.

Ate here with a group of fellow convention goers for lunch. One would think that a restaurant across the street from the convention center would be used to handling large groups more speedily and efficiently. Waitress came back four times with a single pitcher of drinks each time to refill coke, diet, tea, and water for our group of 10.... More

Great Happy Hour! Unlike most restaurants they actually give you a good pour Margarita during Happy Hour! The food is good and you do not have to worry over stack service, excellent!! Will go back time and time again when in town.

Great food and atmosphere. All the crew those directly involved with our table and anyone who passed by were more than willing to help. Special thanks to Denise our waitress and Aphrodite the manager. (I think).

From the Sunday buffet with it"s varied selection to the a la cart menu you will find something to satisfy. If you enjoy a margarita before your meal or with, you won"t be disappointed. We noticed many group parties as well as the regular clientele enjoying their choices.

Its lunch was a buffet featuring Mexican dishes and sushi! I don't eat big portions so I wanted to eat off the menu - it was not handed to us and we had to ask for it. My choice was their shrimp tacos and they were big and so full, TWO tortillas held each one! I ended up eating it... More

The food was standard. We shared an appetizer combo. Chips were fresh and the salsa was good. We decided on lunch here because it was walkable from the convention center. The Margaritas were yup notch. More than plenty for the money and top shelf liquor. I think mine was the Cadillac... my friend got a coconut one, first ever frozen... More

This is mediocrity and dull. Must gather an unknowing crowd as it is adjacent to the Palm Springs convention center. They offer a smorgasbord of clashing cuisines from sushi to pasta. It feels like Airport fare. They are rather expensive and renowned for lightweight alcoholic drinks. Foodies should check for much finer dining than what this place offers.
