Very popular, reservations a must during the season. Even the bar fills up with the locals that know to come without a reservation! The pork shank was tender and juicy. Chicken tostadas were wonderful if you don't want anything filling. Always a favorite!

One of our favourite places in the desert where good food meets excellent service. My husband and I have been here a few years ago, but this is the first time we came with our 2 young kids and it is as good as we remembered it. Greg was our server, and made us feel right at home. We decided to bring our extended family in the next day and they were able to accommodate even with a full booking sheet and seated us at a more exclusive table where we can have a nice meal with 2 young kids. They also got Greg to do our table again so my boys Max and Marcus were thrilled. We tried many items on the menu, all were good. there are a lot of good spots in Palm desert, the thing that made this place special was the service and in this case Greg, for us. Keep up the good work.

Higher end restaurant. The service was good as was our server, although a bit spacey. They have a great wine list and a. varied menu. We were sat in a booth that was a little tight but we managed. The food was good as well as the wine. Reservations would be a good idea.

We had driven by the restaurant earlier in the day and we thought it looked nice and it was close to our hotel. When we arrived it was much more that it appeared from the street. It is quite elegant, lots of wood and beautiful decorations. Large contemporary wine cellar with many choices that we considered. We were dressed more business casual which concerned us at first since quite a few of the men had on jackets.
We really enjoyed our server, he was fun, helpful and there when you needed him.
The food was equally excellent.
If you are looking for a nice evening out, this is a great option.
We'll be back
