    The food was definitely frozen. We had to send back undercooked fish. The service was very good and we received drinks due to the wait times. The place is very pretty and romantic but the food was nothing special. You’re Paying for ambiance, not the food here. We had almond crusted chicken, ocean trough, gazpacho and little gem salad. The salad was very good. The rest was average at best.

    The food was creative and very flavorful. Lovely setting. All around good experience with one exception, the lighting. We got out our phone lights every once in while to be able to see what we were eating, literally that dark at the table. The food was beautifully presented, but the lack of light made it impossible to appreciate.

    Food tastes good enough, nothing to write home about, but the portions are tiny for the prices. The “lamb chops” was one small lamp chop cut in half for $50. Ludicrous. That’s just one example. Rest of the food was similarly expensive and underwhelming. Our waitress was rude and unfriendly. I don’t have high expectations for service. Just someone nice, who offers recommendations and makes your experience positive. She seemed disgruntled, much like all the people working at L’Horizon. You can tell a lot about a place and their management or ownership from the way the staff treats customers. We spent $700 there and left hungry and with negative vibes … We went to eat the Parker hotel the next night for dinner and that was a MUCH better experience. Great service, excellent and unique food and positive vibes. You can tell the people working there are happy to be there. Skip SO.PA unless you want to be robbed and mistreated.

    Beautiful relaxed and sexy space, located in the very chic and sexy L’Horizon Hotel and Spa. Very attentive service from server Emily, a Coachella valley native, who shared some wonderful insights into the area. Food was delicious and artfully prepared. Cocktails were hand crafted and of high quality. Decent wine list too. Overall a great experience, albeit a pricy one. Dinner and a cocktail for two well north of $100 per person.

    As guest of the hotel, this was the 2nd time in 1 week. A few suggestions: It is too dark at the tables that are not the booths to actually see what you are eating. You need more lights either on the tables or overhead strings. Food needs to be hotter please. The salad and gnocchi were great. We then shared 3 entrees: the almond crusted chicken had the best crust. The lamb chops were a bit tough. We did like the pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon. But all were served lukewarm. The Raspberry clafouti dessert was better tonight with a creme fraiche. The last time the chartreuse whipped cream was too overwhelming. We also got the chocolate tart. It was ok, not that creative. We loved are server, but he disappeared for long periods of time. The maitre'd took over and was much more attentive. But we did not feel very welcomed for some reason.

    Service was great on this slow Thurs night. 2 complaints: 1. The fishy smell coming from the next table was overwhelming. Our waiter said it was the cod. It was so offensive. I am a gynecologist so I know fishy! 2. the Chartreuse “scented” whip cream with the Clafoutis dessert was also overwhelming. It would be just a scent and not the alcohol predominant taste The 2 salads were great, healthy and refreshing. Addendum: See new review. We did return on May 8th. There were no fishy smells. We asked for the whip cream to be replaced by the creme fraiche. So much better!!

    We were excited to try SO.PA based on lots of the reviews. Unfortunately we felt the food did not justify the expensive prices. We ordered the biscuits and they arrived cold and dry which would have been ok if they had tasted good. They had a strange fishy flavor. When we asked the server if the biscuits were supposed to be warm he said yes and he offered to bring us more, but we didn't even like them so declined. We still got charged for them. The salads and entrees weren’t bad but they also were underwhelming. The smoked panna cotta tasted like liquid smoke mixed in Greek yogurt. It was a bizarre flavor combination that didn’t resemble panna cotta in texture nor flavor. For $100 bucks a person we were not impressed. It is a lovely outdoor space. Very quiet, romantic. Has the potential to be spectacular, but sadly wasn’t.

    Beautiful garden but on a very busy road resulting in lots of traffic noise. Extremely small portions on fish entree. Vegan entree not good. Small dinner rolls were charged at $7 each. Stingy water service, one glass was given with no refills. Could never find the waiter. I had to go find him in the kitchen to get our check. I do not recommend this restaurant.

    Incredibly great food. Every dish was wonderful. The Seabass alone is worth the price of admission. Also had the cod, pork and two appetizers. The gnocchi and the crab stuffed pastry. Not a bad dish in the bunch. Very creative chef. Great patio. Great for special occasions. Only criticisms were the appetizers came out room temperature instead of hot. The wine list is way too high for the average wine drinker. It was also a birthday celebration and they really didn’t do anything to acknowledge it. Some of the better restaurants will bring out a dessert with a candle. Just a little creativity on that end would’ve helped and been a nice touch. Will go back the food is delicious

    We brought my son and daughter-in-law from Houston here for a fabulous dinner. The ambiance is always so beautiful under the trees, unique lights and stars. The service is attentive but not hovering. The food is ALWAYS fantastic. The chicken, steak, lamb, pork were all amazing! Sadly, they were out of my favorite dessert, the Pavlova but the chocolate ganache did not disappoint! This restaurant is worth bringing out of town guests to!

    Lovely location and ambience. Very happy with banquettes. Food was sub optimal except for gnocchi /short ribs which was great! Dessert was pineapple pavlova but the meringue was hard as rock and tasted like chalk where it should be crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle.

    We were really looking forward to our dinner because we’d heard great things. We were seated at a table on a lovely patio with string lights. I always ask servers questions about favorite menu items so I asked about one of the cocktails, the server said - oh - no one told you - we are not doing craft cocktails tonight - okay - disappointing - so my husband and I both ordered wine only to find out later that we could have done a cocktail - just not a ‘craft’ cocktail - a clarification that might have been helpful. I asked about some menu items but our server was not at all passionate about the food. We ordered the short rib gnocchi as a starter and it was phenomenal but it got dark while we were waiting for dinner - it was clear they were short staffed and we weren’t in a hurry so that was okay - but I overheard a gentleman who I will describe as entitled stand up and ask the host to dim the lights and sure enough, the host dimmed the lights to the point of the patio being comically dark - people were pulling out iPhone flash lights and I was imagining servers running into each other. When our waiter stopped by a little later I made a joke about the dark and he said - oh yes - our owner is here and he likes it dark - well that put a whole new spin on things. It’s obvious the owner had no concern for his customers or staff. Oh and the fact that the valet staff has to wear long sleeve shirts and bow ties in 90 degree heat seems ridiculous- we will not go back to a place where staff is clearly not valued.

    The service is the irresistible thing here. The enchanting beauty of the place and the brilliant food are almost superfluous. Also if you are lucky enough to ever enjoy the hotel, Kelly is a delight at the bar and will make you feel like Cary Grant, Lena Horne, and a healthy version of Frances Farmer on a good day. This place has movie magic ghosts.
