    Great food. We had salmon, Chilean sea bass, and the pork chops, with carpaccio and crab cake appetizers. Each dish was exceptional. Excellent wine list and good drinks. Attentive, friendly service. And the heated back patio with lovely white-table-cloth settings was enchanting. What a lovely evening!

    The food, atmosphere and service were outstanding! The restaurant was very lively due to all the weddings over the weekend but the service did not suffer! The food was very flavorful and beautiful presentation! We had Seared Ahi and the Jidori Chicken. Both were very tasty. I would highly recommend this place!

    We were there during peak spring break so we know it was going to be busy and I took that into consideration when writing this. Our server was super busy and we waited quite a while to put a drink order in but she ended up covering it. She even brought us a second, but by accident. Our server was very accommodating but probably over worked. The food was good. The quince salad was outstanding and my husbands short ribs cooked to perfection. My pork chop was over cooked unfortunately and tough, sort of tasted like char. But I did not send it back because of the free drinks and we had already been there for 1.5 hours. They brought me a nice piece of birthday cake. Overall 3.5 stars. But I can’t give a half star so….

    My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. From start to finish the meal and experience were exceptional. Our server was great, very friendly, attentive and had great recommendations. The atmosphere is very intimate. Despite there being a wedding cocktail hour while we were there it was quiet enough we were able to have conversation at a normal volume. Our new favorite restaurant in the Coachella valley.

    This was a wonderful place to eat. Atmosphere is beautiful and relaxing. NOTE: There is a front patio and a back patio. We ate on the back patio which is very quiet and we noticed that the front patio had a bit more casual vibe to it but still lovely. We might choose the front patio next time because there is more activity (people watching) but, most importantly, you get to enjoy the view and gorgeous flowers out front! Chilean sea bass was wonderful, the steaks were average for that price but, one of them had a lot of grissel. Sides were all tasty. Birthday dessert was special and delicious. Service was perfectly done. The reason for 4 stars is they charge $15.00 for extra butter! I thought that was ridiculous. When you have a bread basket on table you shouldn’t be penalized for needing extra butter.

    One of my favorite places to dine in the desert. The patio has a beautiful ambiance. Music was loud for conversation, but that’s not uncommon anywhere. Fire pits and heaters make being outside very comfortable. Cocktails were not great but Jesse helped with some great wine choices which more than made up for it. Food was great, service was amazing.
