Came here for an anniversary dinner & let me tell you the food was amazing! We went and got the omakase option and each of the dishes was beautifully plated and tasted delicious. My favorite was the Spanish octopus and scallop with yuzu vinegarette. In total, we got 9 courses (including dessert), which made me extra full. I'm looking forward to the day we can do any indoor dining again because the inside looks beautiful.

We had Josh and he was the absolute best. Highly recommend this place. Josh was able to recommend a delicious drink and all the rolls we ordered were amazing. The sandfish roll is my favorite but we got three others that were top notch.

The service was my favorite part. Josh was able to time our rolls, make good recommendations, and just overall make it a wonderful night. Will forsure be returning

The food was exceptionally delicious, but just as impressive was how kind, outgoing and hospital everyone was on the restaurant serving team. One of the servers simply came up to us and explained the food in detail. Thank you for exemplifying what warm, inviting service really is. What a wonderful experience and we can’t wait to return upon our next visit to Palm Springs.

The food was great. The only thing that sucks was being stuck outside by the street in 102 degree weather with no fan.

Couldn’t say enough good things about Sandfish. Wonderful food, wonderful service. Scotty was our waiter and he was exceptional. Great recommendations and 5-start service. We loved the California Dreamin roll, sandfish, venue, and baby languistine rolls. When we visit Palm Springs again this restaurant will be one we make sure to visit again.

The sushi was as usual AMAZING! Have visited this restaurant many times in non quarantine times and now going during quarantine they adapted well and the service and quality of the food had not fallen at all.

Highly recommend!! Amazing sushi!

The first person I spoke to was very rude- if you get rid of him the restaurant would be great. Servers were great, food was great, whiskey selection was good and our server was helpful on choosing a smooth whiskey. However, as mentioned the host was rude- I asked for a spot under the misters because of the heat and the response I got was will you be dining here or not - with an attitude. Not necessary - do yourself a favor and skip this until he’s gone.

This is a unique sushi restaurant that puts a Scandinavian twist on the food. The service was excellent, as was the food- such a fresh spin on sushi. The drinks and sake were fantastic, it was such a lovely treat, I would recommend this place to anyone!

We LOVE Sandfish! Every time we come to PS we dine here! It’s a must and that’s coming from a very well fed New Yorker. Omakase menu is our go-to. The service is always exceptional. Can’t wait to return.

Canceled my reservation with them in person due . Very small. Soo hot . No Mist. Tables right next to each other. 15 mins to even speak to someone at the door. So we decided not to eat here. They still charged me 50 dollars so they stole from me . This place was the worst. Ruined my birthday

I know the restaurant can't control the outdoor temperature, and they are not allowed to provide indoor service during COVID- but may I suggest providing fans or misters or frozen hand towels or something for the sweltering customers out on the patio? A lady who was leaving when we were arriving passed out in the parking lot. August in Palm Springs- it was 109 degrees at 8pm. The patio is enclosed by an artistic metallic wall that, while beautiful, was simply radiating heat. The food and drinks were yummy and all of the servers were excellent, but I'm not sure it was worth risking heat exhaustion. Unless they make some changes to the patio I likely won't be returning until indoor service is permitted.

Excellent sushi, but if you’re going during COVID, they won’t sit more that 4 people. Otherwise, it’s the best sushi in the valley.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. Their outside seating is well-spaced and we appreciated they set up fans to keep us cool. Their cocktails are great and the food was awesome. We tried 4 different cocktails and enjoyed all of them. Their portions sizes are generous which isnt always the case with a nicer sushi restaurant. Service was attentive and helpful as well. Would recommend!

Wow. This place is horrible. JUST KIDDING! It was amazing. The service was phenomenal. The food was to die for and so very accommodating. We come to PSP once per year and I’m in the mood to repeat this awesome restaurant. Now, don’t be going to it so much that we won’t be able to get in! JUST KIDDING. I wish this restaurant many healthy years ahead. I wanna come visit again! 👏🏼

This was the best sushi we have had in the desert! Also, the service was fabulous! If we didn’t live all the way out in La Quinta, this place would be dangerous for us! The KOKO roll is outstanding!
