The Caesar salad one of our guest ordered had lettuce and dressing....no croutons, cheese, etc. when asked the host said “that’s how it is”. The only person who showed empathy or concern was a lady who was our waiter and I think normally the hostess....she was great.

The Blue Coyote is kind of a Palm Springs institution, a fun place to enjoy a meal when the weather cools down. The food was good, but it's really more about the experience and the ambiance than about finding first-rate Mexican food.

Our experience was amazing. We had a party of 10 and the staff took great care of us. The food was amazing and the drinks were perfect. The generosity displayed by all the staff members was 1 of a kind. This is the only Mexican restaurant I will go to from now on in Palm Springs, thank you.

Really bad service, and food took 35 minutes. Food is really poor Mexican food, average meet wrapped in flour tortillas and flooded with a lot of sauce to make you forget the quality. Gotta be better Mexican food somewhere in Palm Springs.

It's probably generally quiet in August. Perfectly adequate, but nothing remarkable. Service was functional, but not especially welcoming or attentive. Food was fine. Coconut Shrimp starter was very good.

Blue Coyote is ALWAYS our go-to spot when in Palm Springs. Though a short visit this weekend, we still went 2 of the 3 nights available. Not strictly Mexican, more Southwestern, it has a great and varied menu and all is delivered really hot, and good. Amongst us all, had cheese enchiladas, chicken tenders (pollo Naranja), Tampico steak, shrimp skewers, and steak fajitas. And don't get me started on the Wild margaritas.....friggin awesome and if nothing else, go there for them. Had a great couple of evenings and Don, David, Michael, and even a visit by Kelly made it, once again, a great trip.

Lots of great Mexican, Tex-Mex, Gourmet Mex, etc. types of restaurants in Palm Springs and the rest of the Valley, but Blue Coyote is special. Great patio, good food, gentle evenings, and still our favorite of its type in the area. You can spend a lot more (for "trendy"), but, in my opinion, it doesn't get better than Blue Coyote.

We were there off-season and it was very quiet. Food was good, prices great. Limited beer list but good customer service. We sat inside because it was too hot, but I would imagine when the weather is better, that the patio is a great place to eat and watch the world

We (my wife and I) enjoy going to Blue Coyote at least once a month, maybe more. Love the atmosphere and the people who serve us, like Mike, David, and Don. Everyone is helpful, friendly and ready to make each and every experience there an enjoyable one. Often we bring friends, and we all have a memorable experience that we talk about later. Thank you to Mike and the whole crew at Blue Coyote!

Had been there several years ago and always wanted to go back. We enjoyed it again.
Wish they had LOGO items (i.e.. T-shirts, beer glasses etc)

we got a little attitude from the server but i believe it was becuase we ended up being 22 instead 12, but i did called in advance to change the quantity. a little over priced for the food quality and taste

I was looking for a nice quiet affordable place to celebrate my birthday. We chose to sit outside as they have misters and it was a beautiful evening. We were warmly greeted by the host who seated us and our server. The meals were great. My wife had tacos, my friend had carna asada and I had red snapper. I was very happy with the service, the ambiance and especially the food. It was a great value. I would highly recommend it.

Food was so so, service was ok, probably won’t return any time soon, an opinion shared by all four of us in our party, to be specific, beans tasted like they were canned, chicken fajitas were watery with off putting seasonings, to name a couple things, too bad, went into it with high hopes

Brought my mother here for lunch on Mother's Day as it it was close to the Playhouse. We had a wonderful lunch on the patio. Food was really good and the margarita was tasty with a nice punch. Wish we had more time to linger but we had to be off for the play. We will be back.

Love Blue Coyote! The outdoor patio is always pleasant and the Wild Coyote margaritas are amazing. To my surprise, I even found that it is possible to eat a healthy meal here. I had the Caesar salad with grilled chicken and dressing on the side. I used a small amount of the delicious dressing and the salad was wonderful and very filling. My husband enjoyed the Sat. night special Spanish Prime Rib. The chipotle mashed potatoes it comes with are awesome! And service is always attentive and polite.

regular customers of the blue coyote. we decided to share the special appetisers. excellent choice. the flautas were delicious. the jalepeno poppers are always a great choice. i tried the cream of corn soup. very good. then we had the ribs. very good. margaritas are the only way to go! love this place. the outdoor seating is great. one thing , we expected a little more of a party for cinco de mayo. there was really nothing going on.

It felt like the restaurant was not well cared for. E.G. salt and pepper shakers had grime all over them. Table toppers were worn. Do not recommend.
