We've gone through all the stages of grief and we're finally at acceptance. This used to be our "go-to" place here in the desert...our own "Cheers Bar". Food was great, but mostly, this was our home away from home where we were made to feel welcome and like family. I do agree with other reviews that the food has gone... More

We had dinner and we're trying to pay our bill, the computers were down, we waited 30 minutes to have them come up. My wife went to the bar after... More

This large and lovely restaurant offers the best Chinese in the Palm Springs area. It is expensive but we have eaten here numerous times and always been satisfied. Make sure to try their $2 well drinks at the bar during happy hour.

We sat at the bar and split some appetizers. Not sure what people rave about. Bland food. Service was good. We've visited a few times and don't get it. Won't be back. Better options in PS.

Happy Hour on Friday afternoon was packed! Good music, fun people, awesome bartenders and the prices were unbelievably cheap. We had dinner in the dining room afterwards and it was equally good. Great service!

Nice restaurant, but the dishes we had were bland. Waitress was good. had to ask for chili sauce to give our dishes some spice and taste. The noodles in the Chow fun were flat and sticky.

We went Sunday eve for happy hour and hoped to enjoy live music. Wrong. Drinks 4.00, beer and wine 2.00. Place empty. Bad music. All new happy hour menu. We order. Drink our drinks and sit. Finally got up to pay bill as no food arrives. We were given the drinks. Very commendable but frustrating. Return? Not sure. Recommend? Probably... More

The food at this place is really bad. But the staff is truly horrible. What kind of business lets their employes runs down and spread rumours and gossip about other establishments in our small community. If this is what you think you need to do to get business, you will soon be closing your doors! You have lost my business.... More

This place has a great Friday afternoon Happy Hour, but apart from that, it is very overpriced for drinks and has unhealthy, greasy food. Dishes that would be lightly stir-fried in a good Chinese restaurant are battered and deep-fried---yuk! Never again....
