Best Margaritas!

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... read 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.

Yes, it's true. One can order off the menu for either sushi or some tasty Mexican. We enjoyed the building and it's high ceiling effect, the waiters and waitresses were great each time we were there ( total 4 or 5) We were greeted warmly, the food was good and the place, by the way- is very large.

We had just made a offer on a retirement home in Palm Springs. We decided to go to lunch to celebrate. Margarita ' s was suggested, so that is where we went for Mexican food, since that was what the consensus was. Much to my surprise, the restraunt was Mexican Food and Oyster Bar, which serves sushi. They had a... More

Servers are always attentive even when busy. We go often. Good music in the bar area too. The food is usually really good with... More

My work partner and I went here on one of our business trips and thought this place was great. The food was amazing, we met the owner and really enjoyed the whole feel of the restaurant. We will definitely be coming back next time we are in Palm Springs.

We went for lunch and had our Scottish Terrier with us, so we asked for patio seating even though the day was cool. They opened up the patio and seated us quickly. Our server did a wonderful job of providing really great service even though we were remote to her work station. The chips were warm and the salsa delightful.... More

This restaurant should not be rated # 50 in Palm Springs. Service is slow; decor is dated; food, frankly, sucks; and drinks are ooverpriced .
