Diner Reviews
  • "I had been to this restaurant earlier this year and had the prixe fix menu with a friend. We loved everything we had. since we had a good experience, I thought it would be a great place to take my friend and her sister for her 50th birthday. The ahi poke did not taste fresh, the onion soup was inedible. They did not charge us for the soup, which was nice. The rest of the meal was average at best. My guests did not like the brownie dessert or the bread pudding. I thought the bread pudding was good. I won't be back. I was totally embarrassed since my friend think of me as somewhat of a foodie."

  • "we found The Falls Prime Steakhouse online as one of the best steak houses in Palm Springs, and since we were celebrating my birthday we ate here. it was very nice, romantic atmosphere, great food, great deserts. the ambiance was a little upscale of what we are use to, but it was my birthday so definitley a nice place to feel special. higher end restaurant amongst the palm springs strip."

  • "Friendly greeting at the hostess desk. Happy hour pretty much all day. The drink menu at the bar is very creative. Food was very good and the service was excellent. Our server, Heather was on her first day at the restaurant, but did a great job. The desserts were memorable and the prix-fixe menu was reasonable and very good."

  • "We used to visit the Falls a lot and always had a great experience. Not sure what happened but place was like a ghost town and took forever for good to get to us. We had a gift certificate from few years ago we were going to use and they said they would not honor it because the person who issued it was not longer am owner and the girl kept arguing about it and that we should have used it sonner. I have never heard of any restaurant doing that as most will honor them not matter what. May be part of the reason there were only 5 tables filled whole time we were there. Prices are over priced as well for what's being served."

  • "Went to The Falls with our witnesses after a wedding celebration that was 15 years in the works.... We were enthusiastically greeted by hosts, wait staff alike. The food, individually selected from the staggering delicious choices, were al rave/brag quality to the point of plate sharing for a tasting! Our waiter anticipated our every need and potential request, disappeared when appreciatively appropriate and reappearing with the next accoutrements.............. Wonderful, memorable evening!!"

  • "Visiting Palm Springs plus a special occasion led us to select The Falls and it did not disappoint! Excellent value in the "prize fix" menu with two of the entrees we ordered off that menu being absolutely wonderful! Prosciutto wrapped pork chop and Sea Bass were simply fabulous! Steaks were also top notch and the twice baked potato was the best we've tried! Our request for outdoor seating was not only accommodated but wee had a terrific view of the street below for people watching. Would highly recommend this spot for a memorable evening!"

  • "The Falls was a dining location that I would take visitors to on a regular basis! Not any more it is off the list. The food was not up par and the service was so slow we served our own water! The manager was very sorry for the experience however this was not enough for a return visit."

  • "We were looking forward to a steak dinner and this was recommended. So disappointing. Our service was terrible. My husband ordered a cocktail and the waiter wanted to take our order immediately. We sent him away to enjoy our drink and look at the menu and he was back almost immediately. We ordered a wedge salad and each a filet. The salad never arrived and the steak was there before we finished our cocktail. So much for a nice glass of red wine with our steak! Which, by the way, I would describe as fair. For $30 a la carte, I expected something I didn't have to saw through! And apparently there were specials that I waiter neglected to inform us. The ambiance was nothing great - overlooking the street above a cigar bar. Really? Do not go!"

  • "Went for my birthday. Service was exceptional you could tell our waitress loved her job. Myself and my BFF had the fish special it came with a lobster tail and was delicious ! Our other guest had the rack of lamb which he loved. She brought us their famous date and pecan bread pudding for my bday and it completed our meal. I'll definitely be back !"

  • "I made my reservations about 4 days before so I did not have many choices.Had to call and confirm the day of and glad I did as one group was denied since they didn't. Seated within 10 minutes of our time so I was pleased but did not see the waitress for 15 minutes.I expected a wait being valentines day but this was a little much as we waited for everything.Didn't get our bread until a minute before our entrées arrived. Wife got scallop and shrimp fettuccine which she said was awesome. I got the porterhouse which was cooked on the medium side of medium rare but it was still very good Garlic mashed potatoes were the creamiest I have ever had.Son had stiletto steak which was medium rare when we ordered medium. Prices were fare, $140 for three."

  • "My wife and I celebrated Valentine's at the Falls. We have been there several times before and love the food and the service. This time we asked to sit in Desiree's area. She is always positive and eager to satisfy every desire. My wife had the lobster tail and I had the 20 oz. dry aged ribeye. Cooked perfectly and delicious. Can't wait to go again."

  • "The Falls has fallen. Very poor service (we waited for nearly everything. At meal's end, we waited at least 30 minutes for the check, after numerous requests). Food was just ok, overpriced. We were seated in dining room off the bar, was noisy & hot. Manager shut French doors to allow dining room to cool and to abate noise, but the hired help left the doors open again within 2-3 minutes. Would not recommend, Palm Sorings has many good places, this is one that is poor."

  • "The service and food were great. Large variety of food for all. Portions are large but ala carte. The presentation of the 'smoking' martini's is a spectacle...the added dry ice makes them smoke and keeps them really cold which is wonderful..."

  • "We went to The Falls Steakhouse for two of their specialties. Caesar salad and Bananas Foster. When it came time to order we were told that both of their specialties were not being served on Valentines day. What a disappointment. The rest of the food was good but nothing special."

  • "Had the pork chop because they ran out of the fish special at 7pm (really?) even though the waiter spent 5 minutes going through the specials and made a big deal of the fish special!! Pork chop was dry and smashed potatoes were ordinary. Had the crab cake appetizer which was basically like eating fried baby food - no real chunks of crab to speak of. Ambiance was nice but wierd, as when we entered Led Zepp was playing in the bar area and then we entered dinning area and we had elevator music - go figure."

  • "Arrived for dinner at 8:15 when they close at 9:30, but the staff was great even though we were the last table and I know we kept some of them there longer than usual. I usually like to avoid that but couldn't this time. The restaurant was not busy on a Sunday holiday weekend in January, but last time I was here it was. The bar is great when it is busy, although it can get TOO crowded. Solid food and great staff."

  • "From the moment you enter the restaurant, everyone there made our visit special. The food was perfect. Lobster tail, Petit Filet, sautéed mushrooms and sautéed spinach all prepared exactly as we liked. The 1/2 bottle of wine option was also great to see. My wife LOVED the pomegranate martini's and everyone around us thought the presentation was pretty cool too. Our waiter came by often to make sure the food was acceptable and the wine glass was filled. Pricey - YES but worth it!"

  • "The food here was wonderful. Group of four, and we all enjoyed our food. However, I was disappointed in the service. 3 of us finished our meal and I was ready for coffee and dessert. Our waiter was no where to be found and we waited at least 15 minutes for him to show up. Finally we were running out of time so we skipped it and requested our ticket. As I got my ticket he flipped my glass of water over in my lap. He apologized, but really a comp for wine or a to go dessert would have been appropriate. It was an expensive restaurant and that would have been the nice thing to do. I would still dine here again because the food was good."

  • "We had reservations for New Years Eve on the balcony and from the moment we were seated the experience began. Server was fantastic and was there when we needed her to take ctar of our every request. Then the food came and all I can say is OMG, both the filet and NY Steak were cooked to perfection which isn't always easy when one is MR and the other MW. This will be our "go to" restaurant when we go out to dinner in Palm Springs. You can't go go wrong."

  • "The category of "steakhouse" is not taken lightly in Palm Springs. Prime aged steaks are the point and this restaurant 'falls' well short of that claim. If you love a great steak, you probably don't mind paying $40-50 for a great ribeye. You won't find that here. There steaks are not prime and clearly not aged. My 20oz bone-in was more likely a 14oz cut. It was not well marbled and wasn't thick. The meat wasn't seared and lacked the flavorful crust characteristic of well prepared steaks. Flavor was above average but on the whole this meal fell well short of a great steak experience. Drinks were fun, dry ice in the martinis causes them to bubble up. Service was good. Interior needed maintenance and a bit of updating wouldn't hurt either."

  • "This is the fourth time we have eaten here and unfortunately, the experience was definitely different. Albeit Christmas evening, and as out of towners, we choose the Falls for our meal away from home. Prior experiences were fantastic with wonderful food, service and a fun atmosphere. Not so last Wednesday as service was slow, impersonal and distracted. There was a lot of commotion in the kitchen although being Christmas this might have been the way to celebrate for staff. The three previous dinners were again fantastic - this one was "okay" and that falls short of their abilities and our expectations."
