Recently my wife and I along with close friends had cocktails and dinner at Tommy Bahama'a in Palm Desert. Recommend cocktails in bar before dinner due to the price differential.

My first experience with TB was in Naples and this Palm Desert location resembles a mid chain restaurant like a lot of other chain, over priced or value places, service wasn't special and promoted turn over mentality.

Our server was very nice and attentive. As we left, we were amazed to see the line up of people waiting for a table! My advice,... More

This was a good restaurant for food, service and drinks. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good as nearby Pacifica Seafood that we were at a few days before. Not a bad knock... it just seems like they depend more on the Tommy Bahama name recognition.

Stepped up to bar for a quick wine and appetizer/ Ordered the tuna and took Oscar the bartender's suggestion on a great chardonnay. Once agin, no matter where you are traveling, Tommy Bahamas exceeds expectations. Servers are always spot-on. Food is consistent and great through all locations. They are doing something right!!!

I am sure the food operation has nothing to do with the clothes retailing aspect of this store. They would do themselves a huge favor removing their fine name from the restaurant.

We enjoyed Tommy Bahamas in Maui and it's just as great here in Palm Desert. The only complaint is that they did not have any ribs left and we were there at 5 pm! How does that happen????
