This restaurant on the river is always good, but predictable. I think the menu could use a bit of inspiration, maybe we've just been here too often. The wine menu is quite nice and if you order a wine you don't like
they don't mind taking it back. Make sure you have a reservation during high season.

We decided to eat early one day and this restaurant's early-bird special was a very good deal. I chose the pork which was delicious. The patio outside right on the water was very enjoyable, but no doubt as the temperatures rise into the 100's it would be better to choose the indoor option. Although The River area in which this restaurant is located is on the major road through Rancho Mirage, the landscaping, water features, etc. mask the traffic noise and help make the patio dining experience very enjoyable. We would definitely return, especially for the early-bird specials.

We visited twice for lunch and sat on patio both times. This is the best spot to eat since inside is very dark and humid because of the strong air conditioning. Diverse menu with good size meals. The cold soups were excellent. I had fish and it was very good, my wife had a wedge salad which she enjoyed. We would definitely go back again, as we have....

So many desert resorts welcome dogs, but it can be a problem to figure what to do with them during dinner. There is an elegant indoor dining room, but also a lovely outdoor area right next to the water that welcomes well-behaved dogs, and with way more "atmosphere" than most patio dining areas. Our waitress volunteered a water bowl for our small dog. They have three-course dinners for $19, with some terrific choices ($14 for early-birds!). The menu is large, with lots of vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. Portions are large enough that you may want to take some home with you. The feel is relaxed and casual but nice. This restaurant has won many local awards, and deservedly so. This is a super value!
