    We always love coming to Shame on the Moon. They have the best salmon dinner I’ve ever had. The martinis were crisp, cold and so delicious. John, our waiter gave us wonderful service and very pleasant. Anytime we want a nice, easy delicious meal, without breaking the bank, we go to Shame on the Moon.

    Shame on the Moon is an institution in the Palm Springs area and I've been going there since their earliest days. The chicken corn chowder and flank steak were top notch. And let's not forget about their signature table-poured Manhattan!

    Went for “Taste of Rancho Mirage” which was a limited menu but a nice weekday date night experience. Ambiance is always wonderful, servers very professional and the food was a relative value for this event. Staff is always welcoming.

    I had the best liver and onions in months! Plate was so full it barely fit all the food on it….gazpacho soup was incredibly good with chunks of vegetables, rather than the boring purée.

    Peter was a terrific server! The food was very good, though I must say that my liver seemed to be more heavily breaded than it has been in the past. My guest had the mahi which was wonderful. My only negative would be that there was a Considerable up charge, to go from baby field greens to just a plain house salad with Romaine only $6. That seems a little excessive. I would love to see this restaurant updated a little bit, and may be promoted a bit more. This used to be the restaurant that you couldn’t get into for days - it Could be again with the right promotion and a little updating. Been coming here for over 20 years!

    Dinner was delicious and nicely presented. Our server Denise did a great job. I enjoyed the salmon which the chef prepared simply grilled per my request. Two of my guests also partook of the salmon while the 3rd opted for the flank steak. Everyone was satisfied and it wasn’t incredibly expensive. I would recommend it!

    The food was excellent and very expensive. The service was friendly but sloppy. Several small mistakes. Our waitress would have been more appropriate for a Denny’s. The decor is nice but needs updating.

    They have lost the great food and service they once had, sent the Mahi-mahi back as it was dry and tuff, service was inattentive, slow and waited at least 10 minutes after asking for our check. Prices are high, as expected, but not for poor customer service.

    Service was excellent and fun. Our compliments to Denise who saved our evening with her wit and attention to our table. However, we were sat in an enclosed patio area with windows so calcified you could not see outside. The prices were equal to a very good steakhouse but the food did not measure up. Their coconut and lemon cakes were the highlight of the meal. I’m sure this must have been an unusual experience as the restaurant appeared full.

    I wish I had taken pictures of the food. I didn't because it was sad. The only "fresh" item was the salad. The rolls they brought out are not fresh baked, more like the kind you buy at the store and bake at home. They have definitely pared back their menu, from what is shown on their website. I ordered the NY Strip and, while it was cooked properly, it was not seasoned at all, gristly and very thin. It need the accompanying sauce. This restaurant has a very dated decor and the outside needs updating, as well. After the reviews, I was hoping for more than I received. That being said, my waitress was very personable, though did not let me know what the special was. I heard her tell it to the table next to me, after I had placed my order. Maybe I was there on a bad night. All I know is there are many more restaurants, in the area, that I prefer over trying this one again.
