We had been here before, quite a few years ago, and were looking to go back. But I read several reviews that ripped it to shreds. To set the record straight: The service was great! The Sushi was Great! The Chile Relleno's were great! The Margarita was Great! The chips and salsa were homemade fresh and guess what, GRrrrrrrrrreat! Everything... More

Awesome passionfruit margarita. Nice, friendly service. Really fresh, good food. The sushi chef really knows what he's doing. Very casual and comfortable.

I am a local here and have visited the resturant and try to support it especially in the slow season.....Poor service ....sushi was dry and poor quality...the drinks were overpriced .....dirty table and glasses.. This is a TOURIST TRAP that overcharges our guests visiting the valley...

Given the range of food options (from sushi to mexican food) I was pleasantly surprised at how well all of my party's food turned out. The bar happy hour menu is a great option, every item on the menu was fantastic and very flavorful, from the shrimp cocktail and sushi to the strip steak and mini chimichangas. They of course...

Love the bar crowd and the best bartender in town, Miguel. He whips up a zillion different types of marguaritas with absolute precision and a genuine smile and keeps the beers flowing until you tell him, "no mas por favor". The sushi bar is incredibly fresh and surprisingly top knotch, even their more simple California roll. And their appetizer food... More

After visiting several restaurants/hotels/halls in the Palm Springs area, we decided to hold our daughter's rehearsal dinner at Margarita's. They were, by far, the best choice around! We hosted approximately 45 guests, beginning at 5:30 on a Friday afternoon... a rather busy time! We were greeted by the manager, William, as we entered, who promptly introduced us to our waiters/servers,... More

We only ate the Mexican but there is quite a diverse selection. The chile verde was excellent. The pork chunks were tender and the sauce was special. This was a $14.00 meal. The steak fajitas were also great and this was a $16.00 meal. The enchilada verdes were less impressive, a $14.00 meal. As for the beverages, the mojito was... More

I've been here three times, the last time as a guest. I passed. 'Nuff said. Didn't want my friends to waste money on me. They were only eating there because they had a coupon. They went into sticker shock when they got the bill, their one cocktail each having negate the value priced meal.
