Visit on a Tuesday or Thursday night when the amiable Derrik Lewis plays jazz for happy patrons and request a table served by the delightful 6-foot 5-inch Ryan, who not only knows the menu and wine list inside out but also happily shares the story of this Palm Springs jewel's locally sourced food and eye-candy design (think intimate, high-back and...

We went to dinner with a party of 8, who all needed separate receipts for travel purposes. They made an exception and accommodated the request. Everyone enjoyed their food. Service was friendly and good. Drinks were a bit pricey. I would return.

When you are in Palm Springs you cannot help yourself but try to be a member of the rat pack. With all of the mid century architecture I mid century cocktail is a must. The lemon drop suits the bill. With small bites from the menu spending some time at the inside bar is lovely but not so much that... More

This is a very hip and fun place to come for Happy Hour. Their wine selections for HH are very cheap and could be better. The food is good depending upon who is cooking. Unfortunately I had friends come down from S. F. and they had a horrible experience with the food. We have had some good and some bad.... More

The quality of the food exceeded expectations. However it is a little loud and a bit pricey. If you don't mind a noisy restaurant, the food is worth it.

Now I've got your attention! Stopped in for happy hour and had a hard time deciding which fantastic appetizer to try. These plums won and they were amazing! Wash them down with one of the largest Manhattans I've ever seen. Loved it! Fun crowd.

We ate the steak which was cooked to perfection and my partner had Miso Cos which she also enjoyed. Our server was initially a bit cool but warmed to us during the evening. Prices were a touch higher than most places we ate on our trip but the quality of the food did warrant the premium paid. Cocktails were strong... More

My adult son and I had a great time mostly because of our server, Tammy. She was fun and very efficient with outstanding service. She had a great gift to enjoy her customers, including us which made it a very special night. She complimented me several times on my nail polish color. Thanks, Tammy, we'll be back the next time...

I went there on a sat night with two friends for my birthday. We were recommended the place so we didn't know what to expect. The place gives you a fun friendly vibe. Our server was great! I had the peach sangria...yum and filet mignon salad. It was to die for. So delicious! Get the appetizer size. It was plenty!... More

Enjoyed this restaurant very much. Tammy, our vivacious server, was full of energy and fun. We loved her! Food was tasty, drinks of good size and strong. Best patio I've dined on in a long time, we all agreed we'd return!!
