We had a few of the fish specials - the presentation was beautiful, but warm, not hot and over salted and bland otherwise. The kids buffet was overcooked with soggy potatoes and overcooked pasta but a good value for money for the kids buffet if they could get the food right. The people who work at teh restaurant are very... More

Service and Food was very good. The filet mignon was cooked to my liking. The only "negative" (although I did not complain) was that sat in the draft of the aircon.....

This restaurant has a great view of the resort and golf course. If you go, I would recommend sitting outside as it is beautiful...tiki torches and all! Food was good although a bit overpriced as resorts can be. Would be a great place for a meal while staying at the facility however. Enjoy!

We have been coming to Omni Rancho Los palmas for six years. We come with four family's every year and had made our reservations for dinner 1 month in advance to be seated outside as usual for all three nights! We were stuffed inside the first night with lousy service and ended up paying over 500 dollars . The next... More

We stayed at the Omni hotel and had lunch here while waiting for a room to become available to check in. The food was nice. We had turkey sandwich and roasted beet salad. Giving a 4 out of 5 as service was not good and overpriced for what you get. But not surprised at prices as it's in the Omni.

It's just an odd place. The menu is a bit of a hodge podge of food styles and feels more suited for a Las Vegas than an up-and-coming foodie area like Palm Springs. Located on the patio area of the Omni Hotel - the restaurant has a large set of outdoor tables that are excellent for late spring evenings or... More

May family and I are staying at the Omni resort. On our first night at the resort, we made reservations at 2pm for a 7pm seating. We arrived at 7pm to find we were give an outside table right next to a busy sidewalk and entrance to the restaurant. That was all they had to offer, even though the tables... More

It's like deja vu all over again. Year after year, the same experience in this restaurant. Service would make all the difference but the hotel chooses to ignore the issues. Pass.

We dined here three times--2 breakfasts and one dinner. Each time the food was served by a friendly waiter and with the exception of an undercooked sea bass at dinner--which they promptly cooked a few additional minutes to good result-- the menu offers great choices and the value is good.

Afternoon lunch was very good. Great staff. My Wife had the Cobb salad with chicken. Very good portion served top notch. I had the cheeseburger & fries not your run of the mill burger. Very well put together with condiments.
