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.

The waiter we had was really nice and helpful and did point out their deals , which we did go for in... More

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.

This popular restaurant was a disappointment on our resent visit. The food that we had was great but we were not pleased with our waiter because of his very curt demeanor. Upon entering the restaurant another party was complaining to the host about the treatment that they had received. We came to realize with our experience that their complaints were... More

Recently my wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Shame on the Moon. We have been there many times and it is aways exceptional food and service (Pete). I do recommend seating in the Garden as we find it cooler and more conducive to good conversation.

Despite good food and service, this restaurant's policy on separate checks will lose them a 15 year customer! The manager's stubbornness and attitude gives customer service a bad name. With a party of eight it is very easy to calculate four checks without slowing down the kitchen. Our friends have varied food tastes and some drink more than others. Not... More

This was our fourth visit in the past few years, and it still doesn't disappoint. Hard to beat their three-course summer specials at less than $20. And, their martinis are among the best. The vegetarian ravioli and angel hair pasta scored well with our first-time companions. My wife also liked the ravioli, and my Kobe ground sirloin steak was satisfying.... More
