6:00 on a weeknight and crazy busy...but we were seated quickly. Outdoor area is beautiful, with pink shirted waiters at the ready. My partner's Cobb salad was the best he'd ever had, and my grilled chicken thighs were good...but I have to say, not fabulous. The spicy carrot sauce didn't quite fit with either the chicken or the mashed potatoes.... More

My cousin selected this place. First time my husband and I ate there. Not sure what to expect but we really enjoyed it. Eight of us ate outside in the patio. It was a lovely, warm evening and the ambiance was terrific. We all enjoyed our entrees. The service was great and the music (live inside and audio outside) was... More

Brilliant atmosphere, 5 of us went and we had salmon, chicken and the pork dishes and all were delicious, really good portions we were pleased we didn't get starters tho. Not cheap, but well worth the money

We visit 3X a year, people have mentioned this place. Too dark, plants everywhere, overpriced for what you get, wait staff with attitude. Would not go there anymore, not worth the visit.

Not much to say other than the food, service and atmosphere was excellent. There were 3 of us and we shared a couple of appetizers and each had an entree. Each of us were please with our selections (Salmon, Fried Chicken and Spaghetti). I will be back.

The festive lighting outside Tropicale is a good clue about the festive feeling inside, or more accurately, in the back patio. Go for a table in the patio garden under the twinkly lights where the atmosphere is lively, convivial, happy, and busily humming along. The food is tasty. Pizzas were a table favorite, but the brisket burger and the steak... More

We were there this spring, and thought I had written a review. We sat outside by the fountain and had great service. I had the chicken special and it was the best ever, my friend had the steak, which was also cooked just right. I plan to visit this restaurant again when in PS.
