I'm not sure why all the rave reviews except I notice that people tend to give out very easy 4 star reviews even if food is underwhelming as is the case here. I had carne asada and the meat was mediocre quality. The salsa was not very good nor were the chicken flautas. If you want a mediocre dining experience this is the place.
second time coming to Guillermos from Los Angeles. They have the best house made lime margaritas.
Always good; always welcoming.
Loved the ambience. Open but not loud. The food was very good - starting with the salsa. The salad with mango and jicama was fresh and delicious. The mole was excellent as well as the enchiladas with potatoes. The salmon was prepared beautifully! It was a birthday celebration and everyone was very happy! We will definitely go back!
Absolutely the BEST and AUTHENTIC Mexican food anywhere!!!!
Excellent! Very good food and a family owned and run restaurant.
Wonderful food! The best fajitas and salsa I have ever had!!
Wonderful meal start to end.
Service is excellent ! Very knowledgeable wait staff and extremely gracious and friendly. Food is supremely prepared and presented , elegant Mexican, not slop all over your plate.
Guillermo's consistently serves the BEST Mexican food in the Desert.... Staff is welcoming and fun and the restaurant itself is high energy, colorful and very clean!! Fav spot of ours!!
Very good restaurant.
Good reception, very good food
Great staff. Very friendly and well spoken hostess and waitress.
Excellent Mexican food, definitely not Tex-Mex.
We love Guillermos! Fernanda always takes excellent care of us. The restaurant is very clean and comfortable. The menu selections are wonderful. We both had the Chile Verde - wow! We also always have the flan for dessert. This restaurant is a neighborhood gem! It is always busy too for good reason!
Absolutely the VERY BEST MEXICAN I’ve ever had. Authentic. Family owned. Superior, very friendly and helpful service. They went above and beyond to help us select the perfect meal. Their house specialties, including the bacon wrapped shrimp and their Carnitas Michoacanas were two extraordinary entrees! We were five lifelong friends visiting from Seattle and Phoenix and each of us felt it was the best authentic Mexican meal we had ever had. And we loved the chips and warm salsa-unique but oh so good! If we had been there on our first day instead of our last we would have returned everyday! It’s a small and very inviting restaurant and the love and care the family puts into everything they do makes it a very special experience. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
THis was our second time there..my husband and I went the first time by ourselves. The service was very good, the food was good and we had a nice time. The second time we took friends and we were all disappointed...Our server was definitely having a bad day and it showed in our “lack” of service..one thing was our friend wanted a simple quesadilla..waiter stated they didn’t have any tortillas..excuse me..we’re in a mexican restaurant and then with my husbands dinner the waiter brought tortillas..I had the suissa’s and you have a choice of sauces..I didn’t even get asked..no hot sauce..no asking if we wanted another drink..just disappointed..if we go back it will be a long time..
Visited Guillermo's for the first time for dinner upon the recommendation of friends. It was as good as they said. Chips and salsa were delicious, the white wine sangria was the best I've had, and the daily special - halibut - was cooked well and the rice and vegetables were excellent.
Our favorite place to go. Family owned and they always make the customers feel like a part of the family.
Extremely disappointed in a venue we have frequented often. The portions of all our entrees were embarrassingly small. Particularly disstressing because we brought newcomers to the desert for their first experience. There was literally no value from entree to $$$$. Embarrassing for all.
Such a great experience start to finish. We brought our 5 year old daughter & they welcomed her & then some. As it was our first visit here we weren’t sure what to expect. We knew it would be good based on past reviews. It was excellent! Got the diablo sauce on the side no matter what you order. Yummy chips & I loved the warm salsa. Friendly staff through & through. Kinda funky location but it’s super nic!
Great food and atmosphere. I started with a cucumber jalapeno margarita, so good! They bring you warm chips and warm chips and warm salsa which Was a first, but amazing. Then we shared fajitas with filet mignon and chicken. Best we've had anywhere. Highly recommend.
Easily one of the top restaurants in the Palm Springs area. All four of us ordered fish (salmon, red snapper, and octopus). We all were more than satisfied. Service was still good although the restaurant was packed, outside on the patio and in. We made a reservation and were glad we did.
Friendly staff extremely helpful waiter..lots of fun!
Great restaurant. Great food. Really enjoyed my visit and highly recommend
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. A lively restaurant filled with happy people.
This time of year is perfect for dining outside on the nice patio at Guillermo's. The food and service is always great here! I love the fact they use tablecloths for both lunch and dinner. The custom plates are special and the cocktail and water glasses are fun! We ordered the Chile verde and carne assay. Both are always excellent - full of flavor and so tender. We ordered the flan for dessert. It's the best we've ever had!
Food was outstanding. I had the combo fajitas and my husband enjoyed the carnitas. Excellent service. Fresh tortillas and delicious salsa. This will become a regular for us when coming to Palm Desert. Our waiter, Peru, was very attentive and made the experience so enjoyable!
Very attentive server. Good extensive menu with fair pricing. Would recommend.
The margaritas are the best. Always a favorite when we come to the desert.
GREAT shrimp fajitas. The best I have had in years. Very pleasant find. White table clothes which really adds to the clean and appetizing look of a restaurant. Really good price point for the quality of the food.
Great Place ! Would definitely go back to eat dinner, and would definitely recommend to people! The service was amazing!
Every time I come to Palm Springs, I try to eat at Guillermo. Best Mexican food anywhere in USA
The sauce on the mussels is Amazing. Spicy margarita sooo good. They make their own margarita mix and it makes a delicious difference Patio was festive and nice spot to enjoy our dinner
Great food and service. We loved the Diabla sauces and octopus. Will definitely dine there again.
Visited on Cinco de Mayo and it was a wonderful evening. Although very busy as you can appreciate...service was very good. Server was attentive...and helpers did a great job with other aspects. Food is always great at Guillermo's and well priced given its location just off El Paseo in Palm Desert. Went with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday...and we all had a wonderful evening and their Mariachi Band played some great songs and even got a Happy Birthday from them. A wonderful restaurant...highly recommend.
We love Guillermo's. Food is always good, service is excellent.
Best of the Valley for good food and friendly service
We go to Guillermos frequently. It never disappoints! Carnitas and their ceasar salad with special croutons are our favorites. Margs are excellent. Great casual, nice atmosphere. Owner is very involved and makes sure everyone is happy. Highly recommend!
Best food, terrific service and outstanding Margaritas!
