“Great food, great people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Sit at the bar and enjoy the show. Ruben is great chef that makes everyone feel welcome. Recommend the fish tacos and the Mexican poke. This place seems to be new and still under the radar but sure to become a local favorite.

“Wow what a gem don't miss it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

I can't believe the food...it was outstanding but what was most amazing were the chefs. Prepare the best seafood and tend bar right in front of you. Now that is fabulous!!i Loved the welcome and friendliness of the place. I was alone and sat at the bar. Don't usually do that because it could it be uncomfortable. Not at this place. Must visit when in Palm Springs! Really outstanding!!!

“Excellent experience”

We shared sautéed mushrooms for our appetizer, I had Ruben's special and my wife had coconut shrimp. Both were very well prepared and served to perfection. We will definletly return.

“New in town, but not new to the scene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We just tried out Ruben and Ozzy's in their great location on Tahquitz across from the Spa Hotel. My wife had shrimp scampi which was tasty and fresh. After a couple of oyster shooters (which you can get plain, with vodka or tequila) I had the tempura coconut shrimp over pasta. The pasta isn't plain, it has a good Alfredo sauce which could make a meal by itself. Extra friendly service makes outdoor dining always fun. Fresh food, good service - this has all the ingredients of a winner downtown Palm Springs.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

What an incredibly meal we had....shrimps scampi, grilled lamb chops, mussel's, Ozzies Famous Shrimp & Pasta dish.....served heat hot and spiced hot to order. Fun atmosphere - great service and a friendly staff. A really nice experience. Loved you could put bigger parties on the patio....so bring your friends. Eatting at the bar was fun to watch how these guys put this all together....it was a show in inself....thanks Ozzie for making this a truly fun night....
