Rooftop dining/drinking is lovely. This is the type of place that doesn't HAVE to have great food, because folks will go there ANYWAY - due to the great location. However, they DO have great food!! The bar-b-q pork sandwich and the "French dip" - were textbook perfect! Our server was terrific! The cocktails were AMAZING! Cannot WAIT to go back!... More

It was a pleasure to find the light breezy atmosphere above the hot streets of El Paseo. Our enthusiastic server recommended the Pineapple Mohito and it was excellent. Service was great as was the food.

After shopping at the Tommy Bahama store downstairs, go up the stairs and ask for a table on the patio--they have fans and misters on hot days. The food is pretty average and not cheap, but you get a great view of the valley and mountains and lunch is a pleasant experience. We try to go there every year.

Went with a friend for lunch. The wait wasn't too bad because they don't take reservations for lunch. Eat outside because there is less noise.

We had lunch on a very busy day without reservations. They had a service to text when your table was available, which was perfect to do a little shopping. The service was very quick and our waitress was very friendly as she took our order. I can only tell about the salads because we both had delicious salads and wine.... More

We had 10 for a business dinner. Our reservation didn't specify indoor or outdoor so they gave us indoor seating. We expressed our displeasure and let it go. After sitting at our table for about 10 minutes the manager appeared and said he was working to get us a table outside. We were moved to an outside table with a... More

We eat at Tommy's quite often when we visit Palm Desert. Mostly to experience and taste the exquisite Mai Tai's (made using the original Trader Vic's recipe), but we are never disappointed with the food - it's always top shelf, delicious and on top of all that, the staff is always very friendly and there when you need them.
