We arrived a few minutes before our guests and choose to wait for them in chairs near the bar. We only waited about 5 minutes and during that time we were approached by 5 different waitstaff asking if they could offer us anything. All were very friendly and not at all pushy. We were seated immediately when our guests arrived and the attentive service continued. The drinks were prepared perfectly and all 4 of us were extremely pleased with our meals. The vibe was upbeat and made the whole evening a delight. We will return!

Four of went to dinner here on a Sat nite and felt lucky to get an 8:30 reservation. The place was hopping with birthday dinners, bachelorette parties, and large tables enjoying the beautiful indoors and patio. The wine list was nice with all prices of bottles and the food was excellent. We even indulged in dessert and they were both good. The service was attentive without being too much. We would recommend this place to our friends.

Very busy, with a very Palm Springs scene-y vibe. Had a lot of fun here with a group of girlfriends but don't come here for a romantic dinner with the significant other. Huge drink list, mostly on the sweet side, but of course that's to be expected from a place called Tropicale. We managed to snag seats at the outdoor bar and it was fun to watch the bartenders and the staff at work -- quite an operation they have going pumping out what must be hundreds of drinks per hour.

This place is wonderful! New favorite for date night! Would be great for special occasions, or larger parties! We sat outside by the fountain , service was fabulous and attentive! Food was indescribably flavorful, had the crab wedge with a hint of horseradish in the dressing, wow! Watermelon martini great, very sassy!

Three of us needed a little nosh and nibble at a fun, eclectic and jazzy spot in Palm Springs and the Tropicale as suggested. As a first timer I sighed when we settled in at the bar - not only were the staff delightful, the setting was exactly what we were seeking! Fun, vibrant, varied - and those were just the patrons! The drinks devine, the appys appealing and the ambiance laidback with a steady pulse of flirt. Can't wait to go back when next in town.
