The service was professional, attentive and personable. The food was exceptional. The Hercules fillet mignon was incredible. Every accompanying vegetable on the plate was scrumptious and noteworthy. The grilled salmon was the best we've ever had. Again, the accompanying vegetables and rock shrimp were so tender and deliscious. We dine out frequently and this was a very special experience. We highly recommend Wally's Desert Turtle!
This restaurant was extraordinary in every way. The atmosphere was elegant without being overbearing or pretentious and the service was efficient, and well timed. The food was imaginatively prepared and beautifully presented. It is clear that a lot of thought, training and preparation went into each aspect of this restaurant and it was apparent at every step of our dining experience from the cocktails before dinner to the dessert.
This was our first time dining at Wally’s.
The restaurant is beautiful, and the food was Fabulous.
We would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Wonderful. Simply wonderful. The rack of lamb and the soufflés were awesome.
This place is exquisitely decorated. The service was wonderful and the family very friendly and accommodating.
We were greeted very cordially as soon as we entered, and the service continued to be stellar throughout our dining experience. The food was very good and the ambiance, warm. Definitely worth a visit!
Service was impeccable as was the food. Private party noise level interfered with good communication with my spouse and wait staff apologetic.
JB was good at pacing and listening to our needs. Even waived the corkage charge for my wine. Thanks!
Lovely romantic decor, interesting menu, excellent service. Food is beautifully prepared and presented.
This was probably the most interesting dining experience, not necessarily in a good way. The service was odd, I felt like we had to coach the staff to serve us. We were seated and left for quite some time. No menu or wine list nothing. I asked for a wine menu then was left again for what seems like an eternity. Again the same to order. The bread and water guys were on their game, they were awesome. I don’t think we will be back.
Food was good but not good enough to bring me back.
Waiter didn’t seem like he cared that we even were there we were disappointed as we came there years ago and it was fantastic now it’s just ok
We spent another wonderful evening at Wally's and were delighted by the food, service, and ambiance. We like this restaurant because of their consistent quality and caliber of service. Thank you again for a superb job well done.
Staff wait was so phenomenal! We had fun listening to the jazz player.
We've been looking for a restaurant in the desert that was similar to ones we've liked in San Francisco. This is it. Great food, service, and ambiance. I had the liver which was done beautifully. My wife had the gnocchi which was also excellent. As a starter we had the classic escargot -- garlic and butter and very good.
Jason the bartender took good care of us before dinner. The music in the bar was live with a woodwind player on clarinet and flute.
Needless to say, we are going back!
Needs to me modernize a bit. I.e.furniture, carpet etc..
great food....great service. What more can you say?
It was a wonderful time with friends and the fashion show added a wonderful experience to my guest. Thanks so much!
We have eaten here many times and have enjoyed the service the food and the owners are very good with all their guests
Fantastic meal. The Dover sole might have been the best I ever had. My husband had the duck. Terrific. The souffles were light and delicious. The service is first class. We loved this place. Highly recommended.
Great Valentines Day dinner! Very friendly staff. Great food.
Wally’s is always a great place for a special occasion. Our Valentines Day dinner was great as always the taste never overpowering and pleasing. The service attentive from multiple waiters and waitresses.
From day one I always knew we would be back.
Wally’s has seen it’s better days. The level of service was good however food was poor. High priced items that were of low grade value.
It was a Valentine’s dinner with my wife and adult daughters. Seated on time based on our Open Table reservation. There was a 3 course holiday menu, but options galore to pick from. Drinks were good, servers were excellent. The food was outstanding. I had Dover Sole, excellent. Had a wonderful evening. My wife uses a 2alker and the staff said to tell them next time and they would seat us on the main level and show us the way to get there. Will go again.
We thought we were going to a Valentine’s dinner and dance. We phoned ahead to get a table near the dance floor. When we arrived there was no dance floor, only a carpet-area next to the musician. Not quite what we expected.
Outstanding choice to celebrate any special day or a treat any day of the week..great food, service and ambience!!
Birthday. Overall very good. Service was good. Food enjoyable. A great place for special occasions. Prices a little high overall.
We thoroughly enjoyed this classic landmark. Having come at 6, we had the special prix fix and found the offerings covered about any taste. Drinks looked good and the wine list was broad and fairly priced.
Wallys is a treasure! The food is consistently good, the service is exceptional, and the music is wonderful! Their early dinner served Sunday through Thursday from 5:30-6:30 is incredible! We love Wallys and we always make a point to come for the early dinner!
Our initial visit to Wally's Desert Turtle was very pleasant. The food was excellent. We tried Chilean sea bass and a veal chop special in maple glaze. Service was attentive despite a near full restaurant. Wally's is not inexpensive, but it is consistent with most higher end restaurants in the Desert cities. It is especially suitable for special occasions. Highly recommended.
Had a great dinner on a Sat night, music was nice but unobtrusive, Team of Robert and Jim were excellent, lamb fabulous and sea bass excellent. Try the souffle's - they are delicious.
