“Consistently excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We try and come for a meal at Firecliff each time we are in the Desert. The food is always great! They have probably one the most interesting & varied dining selections in Palm Desert. They also have a really well thought out and good value wine listing!! Best Crab Louie salad anywhere & fish taco's. Firecliff truly has one of the friendliest and most helpful staffs in the area. Try and reserve a table in the front overlooking El Paseo. VERY interesting people watching!

“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Came here with family before attending a concert. It was a warm evening so we were able to sit on the patio. Waitstaff was very attentive and gave suggestions when we ordered. Chef came to greet us after the meal. Great food, atmosphere, service. Would love to visit again!

“wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

I have been to Firecliff many times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the service. The piano adds a wonderful finishing touch. Always excellent and one of my favorite restaurants. Patricia knows how to put together a wonderful experience.

“This restaurant is terrific!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We spend time in Palm Desert every winter and never miss several trips to Firecliff. Pablo at the bar is great! The piano music of Hal and Sonny real add terrific ambiance and fun. Food, especially sandabs, is excellent. Service is prompt and engaging. Outdoor dining on El Paseo is always so pleasant. This is a solid 5 out of 5 rating. Great place.

“FRIENDLY STAFF GREAT LUNCH”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We stopped at the Firecliff for lunch after shopping on El Paseo. The burger was topped with hot pepper cheese and avocado served with a salad with a mustard vinegerette . My wife had the Asian salad which was also very good. Service was excellent. The only reason I did not give Firecliff 5 stars was the price of the burger was $14 which is high even on the El Paseo.
