Looking to avoid the chain restaurants and discover local cuisine and atmosphere? This well-respected place should fulfill and exceed your expectations. Located at the foot of the road leading to the Ritz Carlton, Shame on the Moon offers a nice counterpoint to the modern elegance of that hotel's restaurants. The atmosphere is quiet and intimate, the service is excellent, and... More

What more can we say? We had a very nice dinner! Drinks were well prepared. The prix fixe menu has some really nice choices. The wait staff is super professional. We had a very nice romantic evening.

It has that old Palm Springs feeling. The summer three course menu is terrific for the price is well worth it. The portion size is very generous. I love the Nicoise tuna salad and the tangy dressing.

Was a last minute decision to head out to dinner, in August many places are closed here but Shame on the Moon took a res and we couldn't have been happier. Food, wine and service were excellent. Really like the comfortable ambiance of the dining room.

Well known by all the locals, this is the place to go for a consistently great meal. The menu is both extensive and varied. The food is delicious and well served. The atmosphere is warm and happy...and the chocolate peanut butter pie is to die for. You won't be disappointed!

You begin your evening with the delightful hostess at the front door and have your choice of sitting in the garden or the main restaurant near the bar . i prefer the latter because of a more swanky vibe but you can have a good time in both areas. the garden room tables are quieter and more private. the food...

This is a tried and true staple in the Coachella Valley... never a bad meal. This last time I had tilapia as one of the featured dishes of the day. $19.95 which included a salad and dessert. Can't miss! The service is terrific and drinks hearty.

Several of us arrange to dine at Shame on the Moon at least a couple times a year. Their calves' liver in bourbon sauce is outstanding, tender and mouth watering. Service is great, especially with out server, Marty.
