Was taken by surprise to see our waiter dressed up like a lion, but he looked fabulous! My boyfriend and I didn't know it was a gay friendly restaurant and bar, but it was AWESOME. The food was fantastic and the staff were even better! A bit expensive but very tasty! Would definitely come back!

I had high hopes for this restaurant because a friend of mine had encouraged me to eat there. For a party of 3 we made a reservation. When we arrived, we were told the only table they could offer was outside on the patio. It was hot (Palm Springs in July,) but we accepted it. The flies were horrendous! To... More

We made last minute reservations for a friend's birthday celebration and it also happened to be a birthday of one of the owners. The "Leo Party" was a great success for our party of 6 women. Mark was a fantastic waiter and very accommodating, the food and drinks were some of the best we ever had. After dinner, we strolled... More

This restaurant was suggested by friends as the place to be on the weekend. We met at the bar for a drink before dinner, very busy and good drinks, although the drinks were extremely expensive. The meal was good, nothing stuck out as amazing, staff was very good and friendly. I would go back but have a drink at home... More

The Tropicale was my mothers suggestion, she had heard wonderful things about the restaurant from friends. So, our party of 5 adults (ages 14 to 72) gave it a try. We all loved it. It is hard to impress all 5 of us, but the Tropicale delivered! I live in Singapore and the food had a little bit of SE... More

The food is unique and very tasty. The service is excellent. The patio is the perfect spot for dinner with friends. Try the gazpacho. They make a fabulous mojito too! Extra kudos to our waiter Michael. He was helpful and charming.
