    Dinner was pretty good. We started with the stuffed poblano chile and oysters. The poblano was delicious and I'd never had it prepared like that...stuffed with shrimp, roasted corn and cheeses. Who ever shucks the oysters though should pay to attention so that they leave more of the juice in the shell. Our entrees were good, as were the sides. Dessert was a complementary piece of cake that we could have done without but it was thoughtful. The best part was our server, Freddie. We had many questions about the food and cocktail menus and wine list. His suggestions were "spot on". I'd go back.

    The Falls steaks were delicious, salmon was very good and service was terrific. We had an annoying table near us where a diner tyook upon himself to scream randomly and ruin the setting, but the restaurant manager and others addressed this quickly. I would go back.

    It was my birthday, and such a disappointing meal. We wanted a table side Cesar, which never came and a table side bananas foster - to which the waiter, when he actually came to the table and then actually made eye contact instead of looking out the window, replied there was no bananas! How can your specialty dessert be bananas foster and you have no bananas. The food was good, but did not come out with the sauces we requested- to which our brilliant waiter brought out cold~! Cold Bearnaise to put atop a warm $50 rib-eye??!! I actually will never go back....Right around the corner is Spencers, and they have NEVER disappointed!

    My dad, his girlfriend, my husband and I enjoyed a sumptuous dinner (complete with caesar salad made at our table!) at The Falls for his 87th birthday. The food was delectable, the service impeccable (and with great humor!). It was our first time there and we all loved it! Thank you for a perfect evening!

    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!

    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!

    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.

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.

    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.
