    Open table had me select patio outdoor dining and they acted as if I had to make another special reservation for it. I didn’t want to ruin the memory of Valentine’s Day with my date by arguing with a preset appointments with the staff and I also requested a Valentine’s note on the table for my date which isn’t that hard to accommodate but that wasn’t done as well. I still left a tip. But for those reading for the value and the price this place had a nice view but was mediocre. Spend your money elsewhere.

    Service was excruciatingly slow on a not so busy Valentine’s dinner. Despite a set menu, the waiter didn’t know what to give us. After the second course, the main course didn’t arrive until 40 minutes later. Mind you, this was a set menu and we didn’t customize anything that can cause a delay in the kitchen. Ordered the chicken and it wasn’t fully cooked as it still has blood within it. We promptly got a replacement dish but after the slowness and lack of waiter attention on a not so busy night, we no longer had the appetite. on the positive side, the hostess (Cecy) was very kind and understanding and they took off the bad chicken off the bill. But unfortunately, the valentine date was an unexpected disaster.

    1. Occasion: Valentines Day Dinner. Cost $275- for a middle age couple 2. Appearance: Wobbly table; had to use the table linen to tuck under the leg to stop the table from moving. They used outside patio tables that did not have a flat surface so drinks almost spilled. 3. Food: Her- seafood pasta was good. His-Filet Mignon(Medium rare), was too charred and not good, a little on the chewy side. Salad was not fresh and the bread almost chipped my husbands tooth it was so hard. The Lobster Bisque was good and the dessert as well. 4. Service: Polite but sketchy (Make is make sense) 5. Cleanliness: Perhaps the old furniture and the lack of upkeep makes the place look dirty. Overall I would never go back. It felt like everything was masked and I got robbed. Not a $275 kind of restaurant. The view is not worth it!

    Service and food were great. Bartender needs to work on their skills for cocktails. Good wine selection. Family entered with toddler screaming for about 15 minutes and management came to relocate mom and child to an area away from diners. This was exactly what needed to happen as patrons don't want to spend hard earned money for fine dining and have to hear that. Keep that noise at Dennys.

    The Castaways Sunday brunch was a better value and full variety of excellent options. Be aware that this is a set menu with a single option per appetizer, entree, and dessert. Lovely presentation and the food is delicious, but the pricing is high. We will patronize Palm Springs restaurants until this location brings back the buffet that was discontinued. Spent $260+ for 3 adults, including tip for Sunday brunch. Choice: Set menu ONLY

    The first two times I went here was excellent. I recently went back and took my family and the food was not good. 56 dollars for a ribeye and it looked like Carne asada. Just way overdone for the prices to eat here.

    Our first time visiting this restaurant. Food was excellent and the service was great. I enjoyed every dish. Would love if they had a bacon, eggs and potatoes dish. My wife got the steak and eggs. I don’t eat red meat so I got the chicken and waffles. It was delicious, I tried her eggs and potatoes and they were amazing. She enjoyed her steak as well. I recommend this place.

    Food, service was excellent. Tables should have flowers or candles on them. Rather cold looking. Place is very clean and of course the views are outstanding. I would recommend that the entrance sign be lit up, you can hardly see it at night. Over all loved the experience, hope San Bernardino residents will support the fine dining experience.

    The manager had so much attitude with us just because we asked to sit by the window. We had reserved outdoor seating and they couldn’t honor that, least u can do is let us sit by the window. Nobody was even there. It wasn’t busy so I don’t see why she gave us so much trouble. First time there and i’ll never go back. Food was also overpriced and the chicken was unseasoned and burned. Save your time and money and don’t come here

    Service and the view were great, but the food had no flavor. I ordered the fettuccine Alfredo and it tastes like they just poured cream and nothing else. A friend ordered the rib-eye and also thought it was bland. The cheesecake and crème brûlée were both too sweet. Drinks were ok but maybe watered down, had four martinis and a mojito and didn’t even get a buzz. Only good thing we had were the garlic fries, good flavor and texture.

    The ambiance and service was great; however, the food was terrible. We ordered a New York steak, however, they brought out a different type of steak. The calamari was extremely hard. They are not serving quality food. We will not be going back.

    Came for Sunday brunch. The food was great, unlimited champagne with a prix-fixe 3 course meal; our server was very friendly and had very welcoming energy. Really nice to have interaction with someone who has an attitude of “I am happy to be here”. We’ll be returning for dinner.
