Our favorite place in Palm Springs

The table around the side of the resturant had really big pillows to sink into and relax. The staff was attentive but didn't try to... read more

Great food, reasonable prices, wonderful atmosphere, live music at a volume that you can still converse over, attentive service, good wine list... can't say enough about this place. The menu prices are well below other restaurants in the area, but this place is GREAT.

First, as others have said, the hostess needs a refresher course on hospitality. We had a reservation and when we arrived she took us inside. I had requested a table outside and there were several available. My husband was okay with being inside, but the courtyard and fountain are so pleasant that I went back outside and said we wanted...

Reservations are a must for this popular location. They happened to be overbooked, short staffed, and stressed this particular Sat night of restaurant week. It took 2 hrs to complete the meal. We had to ask several times for anything we wanted, including place settings!! Food finally came with wide temperature variables on each plate. Appetizers and pastas are best... More

This year we got into town the Friday before restaurant week ended so we happily we booked a dinner reservation here. I think the idea behind restaurant week is to entice locals to try... More

I always go to Sammy G's Tuscan Grill when in Palm Springs and find the food always outstanding. Service Excellent, this time I has Ulises, great server friendly and fun. I had a special Rack of Lamb, with mint jelly, it was very good and cooked to order. The atmosphere at this place is so Tuscan, its very nice

We got there early and it took the wait staff a little while to get going but once they did they took care of us. The food was great and was nice sitting outside. Great place.

The restaurant is set back from the street and offers both inside and outside dining (a very pleasant courtyard with very little pedestrian traffic in the latter case). Food is good, well presented and plentiful with most helpful staff always on hand but not intrusive. (Our particular thanks to Tabatha). Wine list is extensive and includes one or two excellent...
