“Expected a bit more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The menu was very limited but then it did state quite clearly that because of the summer season they were not offering a full menu. The food was good and the portions were ample. The service was quite good but nonetheless I doubt I will go there again because there are so many other restaurants in the Coachella Valley that are better.

“Why eat anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

It's the only restaurant at the hotel and the menu isn't large but it's large enough that you can have a 3 day stay and never eat anywhere else.

“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Food was delicious! We ate there almost the whole time! B
Service was great and the bar was amazing.. They serve the food in the restaurant or by the pool as well so you can eat basically wherever u want..
Highly recommend the hanger steak for dinner, and the egg white omelet for breakfast

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Good food, beautiful location day or night. Service is terribly slow, so relax. A bit pricey.

“Service poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Service was poor and the food was less than average. Forget it if you are a vegetarian eating there for dinner. Nothing on the menu and I was made to feel like I was putting the chef out (yes, the waitress even made remakrs as such) asking for something made for me.
