“THE best food, service, restaurant ....BRILLIANT!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Wow, wow, wow! I really wanted to try Red Lobster and finally we made it into this one in Palm Springs! Oh my goodness! The restaurant was clean and cool, we were seated immediately in a booth and the kids were made feel very welcome. The menu was hard to choose from, it all looked fantastic! We split some of the meals to try lots of things and this was no problem for our waitress. The cocktails were fantastic and the desserts...........to die for! The price was extremely reasonable given we had a 3 course meal including steak and lobster! This place is a must! I would move to Palm Springs just to eat here!!! Awesome!!

“A nice change”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We hadn't eaten here in awhile, and were pleased to find the food fresh, tasty, and well-presented. We had a variety of dishes from the specials menu. Portions large, potato bacon soup yummy. Our server, Polly, was attentive, and offered good suggestions. Biscuits, as usual, are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Pleasant dining experience.

“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Went to RL last night with some friends (reluctantly) but was pleasantly surprised by their menu, the food, service and the place in general!
Hadn't been to one in years bcuz not the best food in the world but like I said before, it was actually very good and probably will go back.
The only disappointment in the meal was the salad. I had a Caesar salad and friends had a garden. Neither one looked tasty and were below average :(. Next time, I would order soup instead!
We order all different types of shrimp and lobster and all were good! My husband had a NY strip which was great too.
Last, their biscuits are amazing and could be eaten as dessert :)

“Great lunch”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Simply the best lunch we have had in a while, well cooked and fresh. Great friendly service in good surrounding's. I had the a combo of shrimp and fish served with red potato's which were to dye for...crispy and tasty. Broiled fish was firm and tasty as were the shrimp. My wife enjoyed a shrimp pasta, once again fresh and tasty food. The also do smaller portions for lunch time which was great to see. Will be going back to enjoy the dinner menu soon.

“It makes you glad Lobster isn't in short supply...”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Red Lobster is a source of comfort to millions of hungry travelers. The Palm Dessert store is no exception. A strange thing about the Red Lobster menu is that folks often settle on a menu item and stick with it year in and year out. The Rock Lobster Tail is one of those items and four of us had a great time "satisfying the d raw of the claw" this week in Palm Dessert.

The service at Palm Dessert was great, the prices were fair and there was little to no wait for a table.
