My title tells it all. This restaurant is fantastic for Sunday Brunch, Happy Hour and they even have live music a couple times a week. I have always received fantastic service, the food portions are very big, and the prices are right.

Based on my numerous previous visits, it probably closed due to poor service. This is a good location and I hope a fabulous establishment pops up here.

The marquee advertises Mexican food and raw bar. For two years I couldn't get past that unlikely combination of food, then one day I stopped by to see the menu. Well the Mexican food is great as is the raw bar and the food prices are reasonable. It's located just behind the convention center so if your there for an... More

The food is great as well as the atmosphere.. I noticed a lot of people celebrating their birthday here. They even have a sushi bar with great fresh sushi. That sounds odd being in a Mexican food restaurant, but it really is fabulous. Great atmosphere and romantic lighting on the tables.

This place is great if you going with a large party. You have Mexican food, Italian and sushi. It's a very neat building across from the Palm Springs convention center.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience at Margaritas. We were visiting from San Diego. My wife's shrimp tacos were the best she has ever had. Ditto my fish tacos. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The price was very reasonable. Will will be returning to Margaritas on our next visit

I love good sushi. Margaritas has it. Also, they make great beans and rice plates. This is creative fusion. An amalgamation only appreciated in a place like Southern California. I will definitely return and enjoy more of the menu sooner than later. Give it a shot. You will enjoy.
