This is always a staple for my family. Ordered the Hamachi which is always great, just as the Spicy Yellowtail Roll is, too. The gyoza were good, but not my favourite, though the Shrimp Tempura were excellent. Definitely get the lemonade if you want something refreshing. The service was excellent as always and I can't wait to go back.

About the restaurant
El Patio is a family owned and run restaurant. What began as family Sunday brunch, soon led to an effort to share family recipes for everyone to enjoy. Felipes, our sister restaurant, began our journey and inspired our family to share our culture in a larger scale. Join the El Patio familia for some drinks and delicious Guadalajara inspired dishes.

Like I have written before, the owners and their personal attention to guests combined with an excellent staff is the reason that this restaurant is so exceptional. The food , it goes without saying, draws us back again and again. It is impossible to find many places where the owners who are husband and wife work hand in hand with the staff. Just exceptional.

The only reason I didn’t rank it at five stars all the way across every category was the fact that I think they weren’t prepared for the number of people that came in because they seemed a little shortstaffed. But let me tell you that waitress did everything she could make everything right. The food was fabulous. we did restaurant week and it was probably my favorite. And now this is my favorite restaurant in Palm Desert.

About the restaurant
MUST BE 21+ TO DINE WITH US.

Reforma Palm Springs offers a world-class dining and nightlife venue while remaining rooted in Southern California with an authentic sense of place. Occupying nearly 9,000 square feet of a mid-century icon unique to Palm Springs.

Inspired by Latin American culture, our Pan-Latin menu pays homage to the Southern California experience. Cuisines from Mexico, Central, and South America are represented and fused, paired with our handcrafted cocktails, delivering a unique dining opportunity.

We believe nightlife should be inclusive and inspirational; a welcoming environment that fosters a sense of community, even for first-time visitors.

Superb food. Tostadas with the octopus was amazing. For the main, we had a sampler platter of steak, chicken, and sausage. Absolutely delicious. Cocktails were on point. Excellent place. Highly recommend.
