    The happy hour menu in the bar area has some of the best dishes in town! Ranz, and staff, also provide a wonderful atmosphere and superb customer service. This restaurant is a Palm Springs' gem!!!

    One of my fave spots. Lovely patio, great service, good food, and an amazing Bloody Mary or bottomless mimosa w/brunch. Super lively and fun. Very PSP. Great at night. Best onion rings, too!

    We had a really nice table outside and the staff was quite accommodating of our large party. Overall, it was not my favorite restaurant in Palm Springs, but definitely worth a visit.

    amazing small plates, short ribs, tempura asparagus, chicken skewers were outstanding, lettuce wrap with spicy port was a little bit salty, but all very bold flavor, a very pleasant 1st experience.

    Most fun bang for your buck in Palm Springs. Diverse crowd from dates to dinner with grandma to drag queens.

    If you are dining on your own they have really great high tables for two opposite the bar where you can watch what's going on. And the staff are super welcoming. A lot of smiles.

    Icredible calamari with mandarin sauce, decent drinks. We loved the decor, very old school. Highly recommended!

    The Bloody Mary is good. Definitely a quality concoction. Practically a pickled salad in a tall glass.

    Kitsch, on a grand scale. Lots of fun. Surprisingly good food. Lots of proms etc in the Spring, great outdoor dining.

    All night happy hour on Wednesday makes this the best cure for hump day. Get through the week with a special tropicale drink and some small bites.

    Great place to go if you want to feel totally invisible. A gathering place for the pompous and pretentious. Unless you arrived in a Bentley, you might as well stay home.

    Weekly specials. If duck curry is on the menu, go for it. Big portions. Very good Mai tai's.

    Eat on the patio. The atmosphere is insane. Summertime dinning like your in Miami. BBQ Meatloaf is a must.

    Huge portions. Get a "small plate" if you're not starving. The drinks are huge to match.

    I don't understand how this is rated as well as it is. The patio is lovely, busy and the drinks were good, but the food was pretty awful. Everything was kind of soft and covered in over-sweet sauce.

    Very fun spot! Noisy though so don’t plan a meal where you expect to have a conversation.
