And be seen! We recently had drinks and appetizers on the patio. Drinks were a bit spends, but delivered with a smile. Appetizers are very good and also delivered promptly. If you're a local, you're bound to run into someone you know. We will continue to return for appetizers and drinks - some day we will try some real food!

We stayed in condo, so we started our week in Palm Springs by eating in. On our last night we wanted to splurge and started asking around to locals in shops, other guests at the condo, and other kind strangers. One name, Tropicale, kept coming up so we headed there. What a fabulous find. Everything from the coconut martini, to the beet salad with gorgonzola and pistachios, to the flank steak, to the dulce de leche gelatto was superb. Perhaps the best part was the truly exceptional service. Our waitress was extraordinarily helpful and such a lovely person. I cannot recommend Tropicale highly enough.

The exterior is deceiving, its actually nice inside and the patio is excellent!
Service is more attentive then most, workers friendly and without the usual attitude! That is reason enough to try this place if you dispise the 'pretty boy attutides'!
The food however is a bit overpriced for what u get. Its nothing special, but IT IS good.....
Its the kinda place you go with friends and have a good time, not a quiet dinner out as a couple.

I love this place! The service is great. You get a a cold glass of water first thing....it is the desert you know...so stay hydrated. Then the glass of wine comes in a chilled glass. First class all the way. I like the people I meet here. Everyone is fun and nice. The bartenders and waiters are the same....fun and nice. The food is great. I mean great! I usually spend time here and then off to my other favorite place....Azul on 111. Both are great places with great folks. At Tropicale you feel like you are in the Caribbean. Oh....and the waiters and servers all smile at you.....I just love good customer service!

The service was great. The menu has lots of unique and interesting offerings. One of our meals was fabulous.

We stopped in for an early dinner not knowing anything about the place but the Trip Advisor reviews. The bar was jammed and buzzing. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Although we were early for our dinner reservation we were seated immediately by the friendly and efficient appearing hostesses.

There were so many interesting choices on the menu we had some trouble deciding while munching on the tasty appetizer bread. We finally choose the rubbed shrimp tacos and the veggie pizza. The shrimp tacos were a real hit. The veggie pizza was tasteless. The pizza dough was really good but there didn’t seem to be anything to make the raw, uncooked (seemingly) vegetables interesting. No sauce, no cheese, no sun dried tomatoes. It needed something, I don’t know what but something. Can’t say enough about the tacos however.

We will go back and whatever we order will include those shrimp tacos.
