    Dinner at the Steakhouse has become one of our ongoing traditions every time we are in Palm Springs. I brought a group of eight people, many of whom were dining there for the first time. That can be a challenge under the best of conditions, but our favorite server, Kenny, did an outstanding job explaining the menu and helping everyone select a delicious dinner. My friends were very pleased and the dinner was a huge success. I look forward to returning.

    Very disappointing. We were excited to try this restaurant because other reviews were very good, however the $40 Petit Filet was tasteless and everything else was just mediocre...especially for the price! Probably would give it a better review if it had been Sizzler.

    Food was excellent although early bird special steak portion was very small. Salmon was ample and very tasty and the large portion of birthday cake was really good. When dining out with friends, I always suggest the Steak House.

    The steak was great and other dishes very good. The service was excellent - low key but attentive. The ambience is elegant and subdued - low level lighting creates a calm environment and the lighted menus make sure it is not a nuisance! Pricing is high commensurate with quality. Only possible downside is the walk through a somewhat smoky casino floor to access it. Overall, a memorable dining experience.

    We are usually not dining guests to a restaurant located in a Casino, however we had a taste for a steak that evening and found the Steakhouse on Open Table. The food was exceptional. It is pricey, however for the quality, it is definitely worth it. We went just for an evening out, but would always make an effort to go back.

    We came to the Steakhouse at the Spa specifically to try the prime rib and we were not disappointed. However, I must say that we started with a lobster bisque that I will be raving about forever. I wish now we had ordered 2 servings. Once the prime rib arrived though, I was in heaven. I ordered it medium and found it to be so incredibly flavorful and tender. Honestly the best I have had. We also ordered the garlic potatoes, but they fell flat. Very little taste other than just plain mashed potatoes. Nevertheless, a wonderful meal and would return again and recommend.

    Ordered the early bird special, food was very tasty but portion very small especially as the special was previously a large cut of prime rib with Yorkshire pudding. This was a very tiny steak. Would still recommend the Steak House though as I have never had a bad meal there. Service was excellent as usual. There was a lot of noise coming from the casino though which spoiled the usually quiet atmosphere.

    the restaurant is nice. we were received and seated promptly. after that things went south. we ordered drinks, a martini came in a small glass with a little glass bottle with the rest of the drink.???? could they not afford a real martini glass. we ordered the chateaubriand and the menu said for medium rare allow 45 minutes. we ordered medium well and expected an hour wait, which would allow us time to relax, enjoy our drinks and converse.it came medium rare. too late as it was cut. grumpy wait staff, no smiles and did not make us feel welcome. the meal was completed in an hour, check brought and we were told now you can get back to the tables??. overall not a great experience for a romantic night out.

    I had seen the sign for the 5p-6p special dinner priced at 29.95 and wanted to try it. Surprised they would take reservations for this time but that was great. The prime rib was excellent in every way. Just enough without making one feel like a caveman. The Caesar salad was just right and the smashed garlic potatoes made it perfect. Great wine list by the glass. Perfect hideaway from the buzz of the casino and tourist driven Palm Canyon. Besides the prime rib there was also a salmon and a pasta choice on the special. Highly recommended.

    The best steak!! We had 2 filet's with wonderful gorgonzola sauce.. and One Prime Rib.. and a New York. The Prime Rib was the Queen cut.... it filled the plate... Don't know about your King ... our Queen cut made 2 meals of left overs. Service slower than usual.... I love coming here when I visit palm springs... Seems like enough staff... they just are not focused. Everything ala cart.... tried the cream white corn - nummy and cream spinach - service size use to be big enough for 2... now only single serving. Hope that they get uptick.... don't know if we will go back!

    We were in Palm Springs celebrating a milestone birthday and anniversary. Server was not very helpful in giving us menu explanations as well as wine decisions. Seemed to want to rush us through, even though there was ample seating available throughout. Very disappointing in that sense, but we enjoyed our food. As for the wine, texting our friends got us the answer we were looking for.

    While it is a steakhouse, there are plenty of great options for those looking for something other than beef. Our favorites include the sea bass and double cut pork chop. You can also pair a couple of starters for a very nice meal (caesar salad and seafood or shrimp cocktail). There are some amazing side dishes offered as well as tasty deserts (the chocolate cake is awesome and plenty for two). Service is excellent and so is the wine list. Once inside you hardly realize you are in a casino.

    I was surprised that the restaurant was as pricey as it was. I don't mind paying a premium for food, but certainly expect more accordingly. The food was decent and would have been fair if the price was half of what it was. The server was barely friendly and the time that we waited to receive food was less than fair. The ambience was fair, but again, expected more for the price that I paid. Although it was convenient because we stayed at the hotel, next time I would go to another restaurant where I have experienced better off property.

    Always great ambience at this restaurant, the food was good. I find that that food selection could have had more variety including a special of the day. There was a freah fish of the day. However not to much too it. Our party ordered appetizers as entrees in lieu if the entree selections. The wedge salad was great! The Ultimate seafood cocktail hot was good. The mac n cheese was disappointing. It was runny instead of thick and cheesy. Crab cakes were group favorite and Jumbo shrimp scampi was great, could have a creamy white wine sauce to it! The shrimp could have been a bit over cooked. Overall great experience, will be back!

    The food was very good. Salads were delicious (the steakhouse salad and the Caesar). Steaks were cooked perfectly...not the best ever, but adequate. Side dishes were a little lackluster. The potatoes au gratin were done in chunks; the gratins I love are better done with thin slices of potatoes and the cheese topping was negligible. The creamed corn tasted sugared. Also, both sides were miniscule (even though the waiter said adequate for sharing) for the price. For service, other tables were told of specials and presented with a desert tray, rather than a menu. We were not. I don't understand the discrepancy, as I am a good tipper and we were dressed as well as, or better than, others in the restaurant.

    The food, and the service here are excellent. From the moment you are seated, until the time you leave you are treated as a VIP. This is a fine dining experience in a casino environment that is quite a gem. The Queen cut Prime and the New York steak are both melt in your mouth delicious. A great "go to" place to take someone for a few steps you want to make feel special.
