This will not disappoint you. Top notch bartender in Pablo, tasty bar menu, and a jazz pianist at cocktail hours will make your night a nice start even if you don't wind up eating here. Food looked great btw. Very comfortable room, will come to eat here soon

We had a wonderful, leisurely lunch on the deck overlooking El Paseo in Palm Desert. The service was great and our food was wonderful. I enjoyed a Nicoise salad with seared ahi tuna. My wife enjoyed a gourmet burger with unusual and tasty toppings. It was our last day of vacation and was a very pleasant way to wile away a sunny afternoon. Their house wine selection by the glass (at least the zinfandel and chardonnay that we drank) was quite good. We always have them on our "must" list in the Palm Springs area.

I went to Firecliff with a group of friends for lunch. We all had wonderful food and found the service to be attentive as well. It has a nice atmosphere, with a small outdoor seating area and an inside area that was open to the outside area. We each had a wonderful cup of soup and most had salads for lunch. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to meet for lunch - it's well located, the food is great, and the service was good too.

Awesome restaurant with outdoor deck along El Pasao. Went for lunch with the girls and enjoyed salads, salmon, fresh berries and cream brule! All fresh and good. Service was good too. Highly recommend it!

This is one of our favorite restaurants on El Paseo, so it pains me to give it only 3 Stars. We went to dinner on Saturday. We had a 6:45 reservation. We went into the bar for a drink first and to listen toSonny play the piano (we love him!)
Our table was ready at about 7:15, which was fine with us. The waiter came to the table right away and we ordered wine. He came back for our order about 10 minutes later. Our salad came about 10 minutes later. So far, so good. And then we waited and waited....... Did not get our entrees for one hour. The waiter came by a few times to tell us we "were next". Yeah right. Did not offer a glass of wine. Nothing. When he saw we were upset about the wait (duh!), he said he would buy desert. We said no thanks, we didn't want to wait another 30minutes!
We like this restaurant; good food and atmosphere. But there is no excuse for that kind of wait. If we go back, it will be in the bar with Sonny!
