We were told to come back later in the week when the boss was working. We mentioned that would not happen and were told,... More

We ate here during the Palm Springs Village Fest, which happens on Thursday evenings. We were delighted at the quality of the food and the lovely service. Would recommend it to anyone in the area.

We choose this restaurant because it had a great patio along Palm Canyon Drive. Then to our surprise the food was terrific. All of our group raved about the delicious meals. We will definitely return.

We stopped here for a michie and some appetizers! The bean dip was delicious! It's a cool spot with a lot of people passing by, kinda small by the bar area but a nice place to sit outside and enjoy a drink!
