“Wednesday Happy "All Night" Hour such as deal”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We went last night for the all night Wed Happy hour. There were 6 of us at 730 and the place was packed but they have plenty of space with great outdoor sofas and chairs to enjoy small plates and drinks. Great deals all night long, Drinks were $5 and less, - great pours on wine, big martinis and lemon drops. Food portions were generous and served hot and flavors all good - Kobe Sliders, Calamari, Coconut Chicken Strips, Pizza selection is plentiful and service from Michael was excellent. I never expected to write this review since we were not fond supporters of Tropicale but hey have changed course, dropped the attitude and made this a fun place to go. We will be back.

“The best service staff in all of Palm Springs!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The food is always good at Tropical and the setting outdoors is delightful in the evening. But and this is a big but... the best thing for me about Tropicale is the wait and bar service men and women. Chris, whom I have written about in other reviews is outstanding! It has been several months since I been in and yet he recognized me immediately and greeted me warmly. Chris takes his job to heart and it shows. He is a fine bartender and ensures no one is left by themselves or left out of conversation. I hope the owners realize what an exceptional employee they have in Chris. Chris is a handsome man yet unlike some of the good loking people in PS he does not have the pretty boy attitude but grounded and easy going and always a smile for each customer.

“Extraordinary Brunch”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

From the moment we entered, there was a certain magic at work. The entry, dining room and bar are all decorated in mid-century meets modern with a splash of... you could guess it: tropical.

The patio is so inviting. There are lounge spots, an outdoor bar along with the requisite seating.

We were there for brunch Take a look at the menu, there is a great selection. While I perused the choices, the waitress delivered a mimosa with a splash of Campari, which was very tasty.

With 6 different Benedicts to choose from along with the other choices, it took the drink to decide.

I had the salmon benedict and it was great.

Though our server was a little slow at times, she was friendly and the manager was great and did make visits to the table. The support staff is efficient and attentive.

The atmosphere, food and drink are amazing. This is now my favorite breakfast spot in PS.

“Old school Palm Springs with modern day Beverly Hills prices”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Very cool place with an old school hollywood vibe that maybe Frank Sinatra might have eaten at. Our server was a blast - very funny probably German woman who just cracked us up throughout the whole meal. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and quite attentive. The food was good, not great, and the prices seemed a bit on the high side for what we got. Still, enjoyed our visit and will probably come back.
