Enjoyed a lovely evening at this restaurant. Service was good even though very busy. Thankfully we had booked so was shown straight to our table. Although crowded it didn't feel that everyone was on top of each other. Food was excellent as was the wine. A very pleasant evening. Just a hop across the road from the casino! Will definitely...

The restaurant couldn't be more perfect, transporting diners back to the 1940's and 50's accompanied by a trio playing Frank and other hits of the day. The food is excellent I had the Spaghetti and Scampi (SO GOOD) large portions you will be taking it home. Deserts are decadent. Great place to bring visitors or celebrate a special occasion. Just...

Host staff was very accommodating and welcoming when we arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation. We ordered house specialty cocktail called the "winter citrus fizz" something like that; it was so strong it took us the entire dinner service to drink it all not that that's a bad thing! Ryan our warm and articulate server explained that most of... More

Just an overall super place for a dining experience, especially on their outside patio. Ambiance is super, as is the service and food

Have been here before and enjoyed it. Did not enjoy my last meal. A drenched (ranch dressing) Southern Fried Chicken Salad. The chicken was also very salty and had an odd taste, The service at the bar was friendly but very slow and inattentive, unless you were friends of the bartender who seemed to get most of his attention.

Stayed in Palm Springs last year and loved Tropicale! We always sat at the outside bar. Great drinks and appetizers! Bartenders were always fun! Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I had an excellent Christmas Day dinner at The Tropicale. We came here because they did not have a limited holiday menu. All items on the regular menu were available as were their weekly specials. The pork chop special was outstanding. Aaron provided attentive service. We plan to come back for Christmas next year as it was... More

Had a very good brunch. As usual the varied menu offered many opportunities to experience the best of Tropicale. I was there with my daughter, her husband, grandson and my husband. I had a Mexican breakfast dish which I found truly tasty. The food was fresh, yummy and pleasant to the eye. I enjoyed every bite and mouthful. The service... More

Have eaten here a couple of times now while visiting friends in P.S. Feels like a modern version of the old Supper Clubs you'd see in the movies from the 50's. A nicely varied menu with something that everyone could enjoy. When our server told us they made everything in house down to some of the condiments I knew it... More

This is a great place for cocktails and a Pu-Pu Platter - the retro vibe is pretty cool, and the bar crowd is mostly gay. The food was decent, but I wouldn't go back for it. A fun place to drink!
