We manage to eat here each time we visit Palm Desert. Fun to sit outside during warmer weather and good views of the mountains. Located on the top floor of the upscale shopping area. Family friendly, but also a good couples place. Drinks and food are consistently good quality.

We came here for happy hour to enjoy the sunset and were not disappointed. The waiter was great, and went out of his way to make us a specialty drink not on the menu. We sat outside and the views were great. We only had an Poke Tuna appetizer and it was small but delicious.

My sister lives in Palm Desert half of the year and gave my wife and I a gift certificate to Tommy Bahama's. She said it is now their 'go to' restaurant for a consistently good meal. I can see why. We made reservations for four on a Tuesday night and got a beautiful table overlooking El Paseo. The waitress we... More

This is a great place for a leisurely lunch, to bring out of town guests, or to just have a really delicious meal. Always friendly staff, great but pricey choices, they do not take lunch reservations, but if you plan your time and put your name in, walk around the gardens, before you know it you get a text message....

Service and food are great but this isn't a place to linger and visit. The restaurant is fairly noisy because it's usually pretty crowded. For lunch, portions are a little skimpy for the price but obviously people are willing to pay keep coming back. The service is prompt and the staff is very friendly. If you're shopping at The Gardens... More

We went there for lunch and we waited only 10 minutes (it was 4 of us). Our server was really helpful (I believe her name was Kelly) and pleasant. Food was amazing and even our 4-year enjoyed in playing with small umbrellas (kids food comes with small umbrellas on top). All kudos for food and service (I will definetely return... More

We like to come here for lunch and find Tommy's a quiet place to have lunch. The service is excellent, as is the staff. We like the menu and always find something we like. Depending on the weather, you can eat outside as well.

During the week we were in the area we went here for lunch and dinner. We've been to Tommy's in Hawaii several times. The food and service were both good--consistent with what we've encountered at other locations. We sat inside which near the door is fairly loud. There is a large outside seating area too, but it was just a... More

Sunday afternoon is quite busy her so I sat at the bar and had lunch while watching the NFL. The bar has 2 TV Screens so if you position yourself correctly you can see twice the action. The staff at the bar was outstanding. Quick to great and provide refills. You can order the entire menu so nothing in missing.... More
