Blue Coyote has been one of our favorite Mexican restaurants for years. Our last experience however was very disappointing. We felt the service was impersonal and rushed. Our waitress seemed uninterested and unengaged. The meal service was rushed with the main course arriving shortly after our starters. The food was only mediocre. The chicken fajitas had plenty of meat, onions, rice and beans but only a few slivers of red pepper. We were given two small 6” tortillas shells and when we requested extra shells were told there was a $2 charge. Even the 4 shells were realistically not enough to hold the fillings provided. Seemed very cheap to charge extra for something so inexpensive that was necessary to be able to eat the rest of the dish. Overall it was an unremarkable dinner and likely we will try different restaurant the next time we feel like Mexican food.

My family and I have been here several times so I was surprised at the low quality of service we received on our most recent visit. The host and hostess at the front seemed upset that we were there and when we were seated the hostess said we were in the way of foot traffic. As if we chose to sit where we were. She pushed my 4 year old's seat in without asking because she felt he was in the way. I wasn't happy at all about that.

We arrived early and the hostess was graciously able to seat us. We ordered the salmon and three enchiladas plate. Both delicious. Enjoyed the mango and melon margaritas. Would definitely return.

Food and service ice was very good! Menu was dirty and covered with food. We had anti bacterial wipes on us due to traveling and the nationwide flu so we cleaned off the menus with wipes. Don't let this comment keep you from trying this restaurant as food and service was great and patio is very nice.

Fish tacos were not edible. Smelled fishy.
Margarita pitcher had very little alcohol. The chicken verde enchiladas had very little chicken. Also, chicken tasted old and was obvious it wasn’t made that day

We’re vacationing in Palm Springs as a group of 12, not always easy to get a Saturday night reservation. Blue Coyote was a perfect choice! We had the best waiter! Don took amazing care of our group! The food was great and margaritas delicious!

Have been eating at Blue Coyote when visiting PS for years. Disappointed in food this year. My husband ordered One kind of fish but another was delivered I ordered fried chili rellentos but they arrived unfried. Don’t think we will go back.

Great location with large patio. We had a nice spot on the front patio. Chicken Fajitas and Guacamole were very good - large portions.

Palm Springs and the surrounding area are rich with wonderful restaurants that serve Mexican food. The Blue Coyote stands out, in part, because of its very relaxed atmosphere (don't come when in a hurry - the ambiance will be wasted) and festive outdoor patios. My favorite is the house special three enchiladas covered with cheese. Truly, a wonderful place to visit.

Palm Springs doesn’t lack for good Mexican restaurants, and while every local has his or her favorite., it’s worth giving the competition a try from time to time. Blue Coyote benefits from a relaxing outdoor courtyard, shielded just enough from the adjacent main drag to offer a feeling of solitude. The menu here covers all the basics, but serves them up with real flavor and in more than ample portions. Service is generally polite and prompt. Try it for a change of pace from some of the tonier establishments up and down the block.

Good food, very good Wild Coyote Margarita. We were seated outside and every now and then the breeze would provide a bit of sewer gas aroma, I think from the street, not inside. Not a lot, just enough to notice. Very friendly staff, good service, large portions. We will return soon.

The Blue Coyote Bar and Grill is a one-of-a-kind Mexican restaurant in Palm Springs, in that its outdoor dining area is delightfully eclectic (including interesting lighting and fountains and ponds), and the food is very hearty Mexican fare. With indoor dining capabilities (and heaters and misters outside), it's a great place whatever the weather to relax, have fun, and share dining and talking. There is certainly an at-home atmosphere, and a welcome place to go for a relaxed evening (much more than "just a meal").
