German | Palm Desert, Palm Springs / Palm Desert

Loved our visit to Schnitzelhaus when we did a short trip to Palm Springs. We are native Germans living in California and often miss traditional German food. So this was a welcome experience. The German owner is very nice and friendly and open for a little chat. The food was amazing and fresh, even gluten free choices are available. Pricing is very reasonable and the atmosphere "sehr gemuetlich". Opening the front door and stepping in is like coming to a different world :-) We very much enjoyed our evening with Schnitzel, Spaetzle, Bier and Apfelstrudel and all tasted amazing! Thank you!

Really good steak place. Had the prime rib and it was good. My wife had the filet. Service was outstanding. Good value as the sides are included with the main entree. Ambiance was ok as it tied to a strip center but it was not bad either. Overall if you are looking for tier 1.5 steak place that has a casual and relaxed feel, this is the place for you. More

Japanese | Palm Desert, Palm Springs / Palm Desert

We had not been to Marriott Desert Springs in quite some time but used to go there as a young couple when it first opened. Now celebrating our 39th anniversary, we returned for a wonderful dinner at Mikado - delivered of course by boat and then spent the night - even though we live within 2 miles! We felt like we were on vacation and the Mikado dinner was the perfect start with an entertaining chef, raucous parties nearby having a great time - bachelorette parties most likely! The filet, lobster and scallops were top notch. Starting with the calamari strips was a great appetizer...and we had enough dinner left for the next night at home. More

Hostess directed us to her favorite table on the air conditioned patio, nice touch. A busy, organized, efficient and well staffed family friendly establishment offering food and beverage for all tastes. The pizza was full of flavor and the fresh ingredients made me feel good about what we were enjoying. The final bill was just a big bonus to the evening, for 2 adults, 1 pizza and 2 bar drinks including tip=$40 😊. Highly recommend. More

Our first time, our party all ordered from the prix fixe menu which was outstanding!! Our wait person Jesse took very good care of us and was fun to interact with!! We visit Palm Desert every year and will return to AC3. The decor was great, fun to look at, nice and open. Music was too loud and didn’t really match the mid century modern feel, maybe music from that era or the rat pack type would be fun and easier on the ear! More

This was our first visit to Solano's and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and presentation of the food and the attentive staff. The menu appeared uninteresting but since we were there we decided to try a number of items. The margarita pizza was beautiful and delicious. The sliders were so much more than expected. The caesar salad could compete with any in the desert. When making the reservation on opentable, I indicated that we were celebrating an anniversary. The staff noticed this on the reservation and brought a lovely brownie with ice cream, whipped cream and candle. Our experience was remarkable. More

Contemporary American | Palm Desert, Palm Springs / Palm Desert

The live entertainment and ambiance is what made our visit 4 stars overall. Although we had made reservation on line, we waited in the middle of the dining room for several minutes while no one seemed to know where to seat us. Awkward! The online reservation did not specify indoor or outdoor seating. We wanted outside seating to listen to the band, but there were no tables available except for a tiny little side table in between two chairs in smoking section. Server came right over to get drink order, but never came back to ask if we wanted to order food- had to flag him down. Ordered fish tacos off bar menu and it took about 40 minutes just to get them delivered to our tiny table. They were quite delicious I will say, especially since we were extra hungry after waiting so long. The band played a nice selection of tunes, so we'll probably go back sometime when they have entertainment, but we shall make sure to call ahead and ask for outdoor seating reservations. More

Lovely neighborhood gem. Authentic traditional French cuisine. Menu prix fixe is an incredible deal. The patrons are mostly young at heart and, I would guess, locals. So if you’re looking for a quiet, pleasant evening with genuinely delicious French cuisine, and even a warm hello from the chef at some point during the soirée, you will not be disappointed. We’ll definitely be back! More
