  • "This is my go-to restaurant for out of town company. They are always delighted with the entire experience and I never tire of the great food, fantastic service and general feel of the place. This is a 10/10 restaurant every time."

  • "The food is fabulous - our favorites are the crab cakes and coconut shrimp. And our server was absolutely delightful. A fun, island vibe permeates everything from the menu to the service to the ambiance. It's our favorite PD destination!"

  • "It was a quiet Friday night as the Coachella concert was happening. Great service, very helpful. I had the kale salad with grilled salmon and it was excellent . Outside seating is plentiful and the atmosphere vibrant."

  • "We had uncertain expectations for a restaurant owned and run by a clothing company, however, the experience was surprisingly remarkable. The food was outstanding and the bar and drinks well-done and generous. We will return!"

  • "We dined at your restaurant a few days ago. We go to Tommy Bahama's each year while we are in Palm Springs. We consider it a treat. Unfortunately the service has declined over this time. We waited a long time for our server and our drinks. We never received bread and felt extremely rushed for the "next reservation." I had expected our server to stop by once we had received our meals, but he didn't. We were not offered pepper and there wasn't any on the tables either. The place seemed to be a frenzy and he didn't have time for us or the table beside us. As a minimum, I would expect to be asked how our meals are and to have our water filled. From this poor experience, I do not expect that we will visit your restaurant again."

  • "We're huge fans of this place thanks to the huge, relaxing patio that has a fantastic view of the valley in all direction. Plus post dining it's nice to walk El Paseo and explore the shops. Makes for a very nice afternoon or evening."

  • "Great atmosphere and great food! It is a pleasure to sink into the comfortable chairs on the patio, warm breeze blowing through your hair. Try the macadamia-crusted snapper... it's superb!"

  • "We had a group of 7 with 3 children included. Mountain views, service and food were all very nice. It was a pleasant night on the patio at Tommy Bahama's in Palm Desert. We shared fish tacos as an appetizer and they were excellent. Our table ordered a variety of fish entrees and entree salads and everyone seemed happy. We will return and I recommend this restaurant for groups, families, as well as couples."

  • "We ate dinner outside on the deck that overlooks El Paseo (you have to request and it's the place to sit.). Food was excellent Nd the service was fine. Wine list is limited but adequate. It's a semi-casual place that is fun. On the second story above the clothing store (actually much cooler than it sounds) it is just a kind of refreshingly "young" spot in an area that clearly caters to the retired set. My 26-year-old daughter thought it was the best spot we chose this week. I'd certainly go again. Fun!"

  • "Love, Love Love the food - fresh ingredients, unique flavors and combinations, and great drinks. I have never been disappointed dining here and always like to introduce new people to this restaurant. Biggest disappointment... there is not one near my house!"

The menu indicated pickles with the burger ...it was served with a half of the size of my pinky! The coconut shrimp is to die for! Yum! We where there for lunch ...next time will try dinner. Definitely recommend it."

  • "Tommy Bahama's does a great job at being a versatile place to meet with a group of colleagues, go with your family, or go on a date. I have done all three at one point or another, and it has always been great. The service is attentive and conscientious, but not overbearing. This time I was in Palm Desert for a Conference, and this worked out as a great place to eat, have drinks, and discussion afterwards with colleagues. The restaurant was accommodating and a relaxing experience after what had been a long and intense day."

  • "Always enjoy dinner here. We all had great food, but my friend who had the snapper found it tasteless and lacking flavor. The coconut shrimp appetizer was great as usual."

  • "Tommy Bahama's Palm Desert is a great example of sticking to what you do best and do it well. The coconut shirimp were tasty as usual and the entrees were fresh and well prepared. More notably are the staff. Darryl is an exceptional manager with tales of how Tommy's was started. Kari was a great waitperson with insights to faves on the menu. Overall a great night in the dessert!"

  • "We loved every thing about this restaurant. The atmosphere was upbeat. The bartender was excellent. We sat outside and enjoyed a beautiful evening. Our waiter was very helpful and made our evening very enjoyable. The food is top notch. I give this experience 5 stars"

  • "We went later in the evening around 9pm for dinner and sat on the giant terrace that overlooks the hills and the downtown Palm Desert area. This town is not a late night town, so the restaurant was pretty quiet when we arrived. Great service by Tiffany. Food was well prepared although the island theme was a stretch for some dishes and seemed contrived. Think finely ground coffee beans as a seasoning for a steak! My Thai shrimp and scallops was just what I would expect with a creamy curry sauce and grilled shrimp and scallops over fragrant rice."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I booked a reservation to surprise my husband for an early bday dinner. We were seated right away. Our server was very helpful and pleasant. We both enjoyed our meals. We sat outside in the patio area, it was a beautiful evening and there was a acoustic guitar player. It was very sweet and mellow. It was just the right touch for the evening. We will definitely go back when we are in town."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Great food, attentive service, wonderful outdoor seating....have been here several times over the years when visiting the Palm Desert area and each time has been a memoriable experience. The retail store on the first level is fun to shop while waiting for your table to open up."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Palm Desert, but over the last ten years the food has gone from outstanding to okay. The patio view and ambiance is outstanding, but the service and food has slipped in recent years."

  • "Good food accompanied by great service..perfect combination!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "I visit this restaurant every year and the food is outstanding. I had the ahi and kale salad, fabulous! My only observation to the negative is the decor is new and seemed a little "beige". There were some pillows with color, but the tables especially inside looked a little cafeteria like. I would say though that the outside beige chairs were much more comfortable than the wrought iron ones before. The live music was great, although he finished at about 9:30 on a Saturday night. The cake we shared for dessert was sublime! Will be coming back next year."

  • "We were disappointed with a very Weak vodka and tonic, but everything else was great. I would suggest you bring the vodka separate in a little carafe like you do with the wine."

  • "I loved this restaurant the last time I was here, so I thought I'd go back. The menu had changed and was a bit limited. A lot of the food is very unique, so I ordered the chicken sandwich. It was excellent, and so was the service."

  • "We were given a nice gift certificate to Tommy Bahama's in Palm Desert, CA. Off we went with another couple. We arrived early the promptly sat us, encouraged us to get something from the Happy Hour menu prior to ordering our dinner. Great service from both the bar and wait staff. The drinks were good but the food was outstanding, three ordered the fish, I ordered the steak salad. Don't forget the hot bread with dinner. We were too full but understand they have a killer cake for dessert. A good find for us."

  • "as always the food was very good. It is a very consistent restaurant in both excellent service and good food. We were sitting outside on a beautiful night and our waitress was the best. She was very attentive and provided much humor enjoying our conversation a little. I would highly recommend this and we go to this restaurant every time we come in time."

  • "Our table for 6 was ready on time, on a very busy night. Outstanding waiter, Ricardo, who poured on the special service to our mother, celebrating her 91st birthday. The menu is very diverse, with several choices for every age and appetite. The Thai prawns and scallops were delicious, fish tacos light and well spiced. My mothers salmon was perfectly done. Pricing is very reasonable considering the upscale ambience and great menu selection. Thank you for a memorable evening."
