    The days of Guillermo’s being a good restaurant are long gone. The place has been going downhill for quite some time and has now hit rock bottom. Absolutely some of the worst Mexican food I’ve had in a while. There are so many great Mexican restaurants in Palm Desert, but this is not one of them. In addition, the service is terrible. Had to send my food back twice and they still couldn’t make it right. The owner did not try to correct the situation nor was he helpful. Definitely avoid this place at all costs.

    This is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurants in Palm Desert. They have the best margaritas in the desert area and the food is fantastic along with a great variety of dishes on their menu.

    I wanted to share our “favorite” Mexican restaurant with our friends and was so disappointed!! The service was average we mentioned that the drinks were weaker than last time and the server dismissed us. My husband wanted to have the octopus grilled like the last time and we know that she probably didn’t repay the request, the restaurant was not very busy either. We were so embarrassed to have recommended this to them. There were 6 of us.

    This is a special restaurant that is consistently good but the receptionist that was on duty this night was not friendly or forthcoming. We had reservations for two and arrived on time. She said our table would be ready soon. We sat down and waited for a few minutes. I saw several tables that could have seated 4 people that were empty. We watched a group of 4 walk right in and get seated immediately. At this point I ask when will we be seated and she said she was waiting for a twosome to leave. Didn’t ever see these larger tables get filled. At this point we headed to the bar and decided to eat there and not deal with the grumpy receptionist. Everything from that point on was perfect. Had she smiled and acted interested in getting us seated I would have been ok.

    Although the food is excellent the menu is somewhat limited meaning they don’t have anything like combos. I wanted one taco & one enchilada but they will not serve it that way. You have to order 2 enchilada dinner & pay extra for one taco. This is the only Mexican restaurant that I know of that will not let you make up your own combo.

    Back in the desert for a few days. Had to stop at the best Mexican food in the desert. Love the warm salsa for our chips - helps start our meal off right! A fun place to take out-of-towners when they want Mexican.

    It's always a good experience to dine at Guillermo's. We like this restaurant and are always well taken care of. It's fun to eat here, the food is beautifully prepared and delicious. It is popular because it is consistent and good! We had their house made guacamole, chicken and cheese enchiladas. They are always great!

    It was weird, we never really had an official waiter. A bunch of folks standing around. I think our official waiter was too busy for us. The chips and salsa was really good. However the entree lacked flavor of any kind. I had the fajitas ~ which consisted of meat that was unseasoned and oily chunky vegetables. Would not recommend.

    We started a weekend trip from Peoria to Napa via Palm Desert and Monterey…. Great start with first stop being Guillermo’s for dinner. Was up on Yelp, found this place. Wife had Jicama salad and tortilla soup, I had Chili verde burrito, wet. Wow! Delicious! Wife said one of the best soups she’s ever had. Bonus: proprietor, Guillermo, came over and talked with us, very nice gentleman. Great place.

    We're still talking about what a wonderful meal we had at Guillermo's! We love dining here and are long time customers. The service is always efficient and friendly. We like the cotton tablecloths and custom dishes. The beverage glasses are authentic and colorful. Everything is clean. We both had the chicken and cheese enchiladas with rice and beans. No one makes them better! We hope they will be able to serve lunch again soon!
