Dining at Blue Coyote after the annual Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade has become a tradition. There were six of us this time around and each of us really enjoyed our meals. The service was great, and the staff were very welcoming and accommodating.

Food was excellent. This time we ordered the beef fajitas and ate every bite. Everyone else at the table also enjoyed their dinners. Service was attentive but not overbearing.

Our first visit to Blue Coyote Bar and we were pleasantly surprised. I had the Enchiladas Especiale, which were fantastic and my wife had the orange chicken which was also excellent.

Been going here for over 25 years. The food is good, but not as upscale as it use to be. Be sure to order a side of the jalapeño cream sauce for your chips. Very good though a little spicy . Need to go Tuesday for the Yucatán lamb.

I love that they are featuring the new trending agave spirit and 314 Huellas on their Bar menu. It shows they are on the edge of this new trend

Very nice patio seating. The maitre d' was very enthusiastic. Our server was meh. Food was pretty good. The best value for this restaurant is the ambiance of the patio. Our drinks were strong and well worth the money.

The food was average for what we were expecting. The meat in our dish for 2 was tough. Our family members and guests were underwhelmed with their dishes. Thankfully we had a great server which made our overall experience average.

Overall good experience.

Lots of go-to Mexican restaurants in the area, but Blue Coyote stands out for good service, great food, and delightful ambiance. The enchilada special is my favorite, and the large guacamole is a treat, as well.

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!
