    The food was pretty decent. My husband ordered the pork chop but it came with a sweet jelly which he hates so I had to trade dishes with him and give him my mani mani bc I don’t mind sweetened meats. However the pork chop was a little dry and I ate a third of it . The mani mani was cooked perfect the orzo was an odd combo I think rice or mashed potatoes would have been a better compliment. My son had a burger which was tasty but by far the best item on the menu that we ordered was the baked Mac and cheese. That was special…. One of the best. The price a bit high for the food quality. The ambience and service however was top notch!!

    Unfortunately, we could only get in to eat early and and that caused us to battle the flies once our food came. They brought one table fan which did help a little bit with the flies.

    As always, never disappoints. Staff members are all professional, courteous and friendly. F & B yummy—our server Caesar was great. Best of all is the outdoor ambiance, especially if seated near the live music. Mark is a fabulous guitarist and plays a big part in a lovely dining experience.

    A delicious and delightful early Mother’s Day Dinner! Great food on a perfect night at the best outdoor dining in the valley. Mark did his usual wonderful job entertaining on the guitar. The service was timely, attentive and professional. Tremendous upscale dining experience we haven’t experienced anywhere else in the area. Very well managed establishment and a fun time each time we go. We can’t wait to visit again!

    Always our first choice when we are in Palm Springs golfing. The food is delicious, fresh and prepared so beautifully. Service is the best in the valley, we love the museum of Arnies pics and golf paraphernalia. Absolutely 10 in our book of places to eat.
