Friendly gracious staff. Foie Gras was properly cooked but appetizer was overwhelmed by an over abundance of savory sauce. Dover sole was excellent. Veal chop was artfully presented but slightly overcooked. Only criticism; the live piano music was overly loud More

Good wine selections, old school schnitzels that satisfied my European chef boyfriend, and nicely done appetizers like smoked fish or ahi tuna... Not a flashy place, but one that can throw down very well-crafted food. More

Discover Palm Desert

Originally named Old MacDonald Ranch, Palm Desert was once a training center for infamous General George Patton, and restaurants still serve American classic comfort foods like heirloom tomato salads, fried calamari and bacon wrapped dates for starters. Hand stretched pizzas with wild mushrooms, fontina cheese, shaved asparagus, garlic, spices and some goat cheese are popular contemporary American meals. Spanish mission-style restaurants serve linguine and shrimp with fresh corn, heirloom tomatoes, herbs and bread crumbs along with pan-roasted Jidori chicken with couscous, chilled saffron and lemon aioli. Greek is a fun option for those that want a little more excitement on the plate with offerings like classic Greek moussaka, lamb souvlaki, and Greek ribs grilled with lemon oil, oregano and garlic.
