We went for happy hour 4 to 7. We shared a couple of appetizers and a small pizza. Food was excellent. Enjoyed happy hour beer and wine all reasonably priced. We sat outside in a lovely garden setting with heat lamps as it was a cool night. Service was friendly and efficient. This is an expensive restaurant unless you go... More

Spent Christmas Eve here and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Our server gave good recommendations and I followed his advise. I ordered the fried chicken, one of their specialties. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Others in our party ordered a variety of fish dishes and raved about them. The decor reminds me of Hawaii and the outside patio... More

Large family dinner outside in December during a cold snap. We were toasty due to propane heaters. Excellent service and food was delicious.

Every time I'm in Palm Springs this is the one "must" have dinner spots. They easily accommodate large parties have very friendly staff and make great martinis. The patio is a great place to dine as well however they have a lovely indoor dining room as well!! Enjoy!

What a joint!!! We had reservations on the patio and a freak rainstorm was predicted by the local weathermen. The restaurant erected an outdoor tent, decorated inside and kept us all dry on NYE.
