An abundance of Palm Springs atmosphere, and delicious Mango Margaritas. Food was pretty good, but the drinks and swanky setting was tops.

The table was ready for us at 6:30 on a Friday night. Drinks were ordered and quickly arrived at the table. Our server was spectacular. Two if us ordered the carrot soup appetizer. Nice and sweet carrots yet wonderfully seasoned and decorated. The evening was off to a great start. We were never rushed. More drinks were ordered. Water glasses... More

Very nice restaurant. We got seats outside where you probably do not enjoy so much the the very nice ambiance - try to get seated inside. I tried to get a reservation and the receptionist war somehow no very clear in having or not having table for us. When we arrived I felt that my call was useless although we... More

I went here on a busy Thursday night during Villagefest. My husband and I arrived a little early so we had a drink at the very nice and very hopping bar. We were seated on time at the outdoor patio by the fountain. This is one of my favorite patios anywhere. The food and service were excellent. I will definitely... More

As the title says, I think the service here was great, the waitress was enthusiastic and friendly. I'm not sure if maybe I should have ordered something safer than the mexican themed pizza, it was good, just different. It's a decent place though.

Enjoyed a nice dinner dining on their outdoor patio. Perfect evening for outdoor dining. The food was good and served quickly. The waiter could have bee more attentive. Never asked if the food was ok and our water glasses were never filled. My only complaint is my glass was empty the entire meal and no one noticed or cared! All... More

This is the second time my wife and I have been here. She had the specialty fried chicken, which was so tender you didn't need a knife to cut it. I had the pork chop, which in my opinion was the best I've ever had, cooked to perfection with the special sweet/sour sauce over it. Absolutely, love this restaurant.

I'm taking the time to write this because the Tropicale got away with highway robbery tonight. We were with clients, so we didn't complain about our food. We both ordered the halibut. The small round potatoes were overdone and few. The greens were not edible. I tried and couldn't chew them. Literally, I had to discreetly put them back on... More

The Alaskan halibut you ordered was prepared simply because it's a highly praised fish with a delicate flavor. We intentionally did not pair the dish with an overbearing sauce which is something you must be used to. The dated decor you refer to has won numerous design reviews and is regularly praised by guests and reviewers. The entire staff of... More

We have visited several times - the patio is always hopping, the service is friendly and prompt, the food is delicious and we find the prices outrageously reasonable - especially if you take advantage of the daily Happy Hour specials. Our fav dishes include the gorgonzola stuffed dried plums, the satay chicken, and the yam fries. We try lots of... More

We have dined at Tropicale numerous times. There has never been a problem. The interior atmosphere is inviting and comfortable. The large patio provides an excellent setting for outdoor dining. The bar area is quite nice. The staff is very professional and accommodating. The hostess eagerly greets guests and immediately makes patrons feel welcome. The servers are skilled, helpful, and...
