    We had my wife's birthday dinner here and the food was delicious! I had the sea bass and it was outstanding! My wife had the Filet and lobster tail and it was perfect. Both dinners were melt in your mouth. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. We will be back!

    We had dined here a couple years ago, food was great. We looked forward to return for our anniversary celebration, but were very disappointed in the food. It was not as we remembered it. We left feeling as though we wasted our money; which we work very hard for. We will probably not return.

    Talked wife into one more try. Out of the last 5 attempts, the last 4 were bad. Always a problem with the food, one way or the other. The 6th time, on 10/3, ordered the steak rare, came out medium. Wife asked for fish cooked well, came out raw. Escargot was cold. Was told "hot plate" but it was not! Mgr. More concerned with own area of service. They took off the escargot. Had to ask to reheat the side that sat on the table for all that time. This area has way too many great steak houses. Go to Maestros, Ruths Chris, Morgans, Flemings, or The Chop House, you will not get frustrated, and for the prices, happier. Remember, we've given this restaurant 6 attempts, so we will not make it 7.

    I had eaten here two years ago, so wanted to bring friends here, on a recent trip to Palm Springs. It was as good as I remembered! Staff and service are excellent, timing of the meal was perfect to relax, and enjoy the evening. The martinis we ordered were well made, and they begin by serving you hot, delicious breads to share. We decided to skip the appetizer, and instead, ordered an extra side. Both couples split the ribeye steak, and it was a generous cut, that easily fed each person. Our sides were the twice baked potato, mushrooms and onions (we asked for this, not on the menu,but they are happy to prepare it),and asparagus. The sides are large, and easily feed 3 to 4 people. Everything we ordered was delicious!

    Had a fabulous experience. Our server was very knowledgable of the menu. She recommended the lobster mashed potatoes to accompany our filet (Oscar style) and the Surf n Turf. Excellent choice, along with the creamed spinach which was to die for. I can't wait to go back!

    I had very high expectations and was not disapointed! Had a reservation and was seated promptly. Not a wine drinker but was happily anticed with sangria. It was delicious! Waitress was fabulous. Offered the specials, and made appropriate recomendations. For example a wedge salad is enough to share, butterfly the steak for more thorough cooking, serving size is big enough for a dish ordered. Frequently checked on yet not bothered. Food quality, quantity and atmosphere were exceptional. A loyal customer has been earned. Already planning my husbands birthday dinner to go back.

    Took my husband for his 75th birthday. Enjoyed Happy Hour, friendly bartender and then had a super Early Bird dinner. Very nice waiter, speedy and courteous. Steak was just right but veggies a little too "al dente. They brought a delicious chocolate cake desert with candle for his celebration. Had a lovely evening.

    The Steakhouse has the perfect setting for a romantic dinner. The restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. I requested a special Anniversary night, for my wife, and that is exactly what was provided. Our waiter provided excellent service - he was very attentive to our needs. The complimentary dessert, with a candle, was an exceptional touch! The Chateaubriand was perfect, thanks Chef! I would definitely enjoy the hospitality at The Steakhouse again (this was our second visit).

    Why reserve a table if they still make you wait 15 - 20 minutes. And were not in the least bit apologetic about it. The hostess had to be reminded twice that we were still sitting outside waiting. Food was good but expensive. The wait staff was good but I don't think we will visit again.

    It's not only the food that makes your experience, it's the service. We dined on the 4th of July at the Steakhouse and had probably the best service we've ever had in the desert. Alfredo made our experience the best. We dined in the bar where the atmosphere was a more to our liking. Alfredo offered a wine taste of the red wine we were thinking about. He also was very knowledgable and knew the menu to a "tee". We had the special Rib Eye which with the blackening was simply delicious with a somewhat charred crust and moist tender meat interior, the creamed corn was to die for. So, with that said, the meal was excellent which was only heightened by the ultimate service we experienced with Alfredo. We will be back!

    We got reservations for a party of six for a special occasion. We had eaten there years before, and enjoyed it very much. This time was quite different. One steak was not hot, and the baked potato was undercooked. Another filet ordered Medium was absolutely rare inside. The diner just ate around the edges. Salads, wine, dessert were all good, but we had hoped for a special experience and were very disappointed.
