A word from POM - Fantasy Springs Resort & Casino
POM is Fantasy Springs Resort Casino"s answer to casino cafes. POM features breakfast, lunch and dinner in an atmosphere that's light, airy and modern.

Reviewers on Yelp.com give POM 4&1/2 stars out of 5 and for good reason. The food here is of top quality. Chef Freddy Rieger even gets herbs used for cooking and garnish from the garden just outside the restaurant's French doors. The food is inventive yet hearty and the service is friendly and attentive.

Patrons can also order cocktails here they won't find anywhere else around Palm Springs. How about a Date Martini or a hand-crafted White Sangria?

POM excites your senses and keeps you coming back for more.

    Our recent dining experience at the POM was very nice. Attentive - almost to a fault. Wait time-none, In and out in less than 45 minutes. Mix drinks were on the weak side. But overall experience was a delight. Ambiance could have used a little less lighting. Very Bright

    If you can stand to walk through a smoke filled casino then this restaurant is worth it. They have a great twist on some classics and great service. The prices are very reasonable. The shredded pork quesadilla was a personal favorite.

    I love POM and took some family members to eat there and was so disappointed. Our server was really slow, took a long time to just get water. The three people I was with had the bbq night special which was good. I had my usual pork chops. The apples this time were cooked with too much wine that want cooked off, you could smell it and taste it and I'm not a drinker at all. When we told the server she came back and said that the chef said it was the carrots and have me another serving of the apples which were the same, taste and smell like wine. Otherwise I love this place.

    The food was very good! Ambiance, average. My complaint was that we had to ask for them to turn up the air conditioing. It was about 110 degrees outside and I was dying with the heat, so it was hard to enjoy my steak in peace. Service was great - so it was really that it was too darn hot in there.

    Our party had a wide variety or dishes, and everyone was pleased with their choice. The presentation of the plates was impressive, particularly the Osso Buco, and the flavor was equally good. The specialty drinks were good as well. I had the Candy Apple Martini, and it was like a liquid candy apple. Our server, as well as other members of the staff, were attentive, accommodating and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend POM.

The food was presented very nicely and was tasty. We were grateful for the birthday desert. It is not appreciated that my reservation points were not awarded.

    I would not recommend this restaurant. The food was OK but it was served so quickly that I am sure it was prepared and assembled in a line. We were in and out in 30 minutes- too quickly for well prepared food. I realize it was a casino and they want you on the casino floor as soon as possible but this was ridiculous!!

There were only 2 of us & we were seated in the dining room at a table for 4. Nice touch! (none of those 2 seat tables that are too small for anything).

    The dinner was great and the service really good. One member of our party has hearing aids and the background music made it hard for her to hear conversation even when the staff where very accommodating and moved us it did not really help. Overall the experience was very enjoyable. The dessert we were given as an anniversary gift was a really nice touch.

    We had dinner reservation at 8p.m. and was seated right away. The waiter was great except she forgot a glass of wine ordered during the middle of dinner and we had to bring it to someone else's attention. The food overall was good. The pasta and seafood dish wasn't very well seasoned, but the other dishes had by everyone with our party was good. It was quiet and easy to have a conversation and it's a nice looking restaurant with high ceiling so the atmosphere was great. The desserts are huge and can be shared. Overall a great experience.

    Want good food for a reasonable price. Go to Pom. Eating breakfast outside right beside the herb garden is so nice from Nov-Feb. Eating inside in the open bar area, open dining area or inside the Blue Room is always a nice experience. When people vist us in the Desert we more often than not take them to Pom.

    We eat at Pom quite often as the food is consistently excellent. The $5.95 lunch special is outstanding . The lunch special includes soup and entree. Several Wines can be purchased for $5.00 a glass during lunch. Of special note is their turkey dinner, Asian salmon , spinach pear salad, tortilla soup, and cranberry nut bread. The restaurant dining areas are closed from 4-5 so sit at the bar as the bartenders are very friendly. Reservations are recommended for any Fantasy Springs Casino show night. Thursday nights are a set Texas BBQ family style menu. Enjoy your meal. Btw if you want a more romantic setting ask for the dining room. If the weather is nice, ask to sit outdoors.

    The food was prepared very nicely. I had the Prime Rib and it was medium, but not a warm as I would like it. The salmon dish was very nice and tasty. Would recommend it. The service was extremely slow. The bread didn't arrive at the table until the meal was served. Water was not filled promptly by the bus person or the waiter. The Pom restaurant has a good value for the meal. Having an Open Table check made it even better.
