About the restaurant
The ancient tradition of the Samurai lives on at Mikado where knife-twirling chefs use fire and steam to create a mouth watering menu of steak, chicken and seafood delights. The highlight of the experience is the dazzling talents of your chef as he expertly chops, juggles, jokes and prepares an incredible meal right before your eyes. While you are led to your table through our private Japanese garden, notice the Koi swimming below and the sound of cascading waterfalls.

Mikado at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa is known throughout the Coachella Valley and Southern California as the leader in authentic Teppan-Yaki Dining.

But it doesn’t stop there! East meets West at the ultimate sushi bar where you can relax and enjoy the freshest foods and a signature martini or sake. Celebrate an intimate gathering or a private function up to 140 guests at Mikado where the food is the show! Arigato!

"Please note that Mikado Restaurant reservations are not inclusive of a boat tour."

About the restaurant
A chic and sophisticated décor provides the setting for our distinctive "world cuisine", a provocative mix of zesty influences that creates a delightful dining experience in Palm Springs, California. Plush high-backed semicircular banquettes surround our dining room and offer comfortable and private seating. The cuisine has a light, exotic feel with an emphasis on Pacific Rim specialties, from Chilean Sea Bass baked in Banana Leaves or Kahlua-Barbecued Pork Chops to all sorts of tasty tapas, salads, wood-fired pizzas, and desserts. The Coral Seas Lounge, a hip mid-century style bar is lined with sexy black leather bar-stools and is reminiscent of the upbeat lounges of old Palm Springs. It wraps around the dining room and leads outside to a lush, tropical, 2000 square foot dining patio where a variety of specialty cocktails and old-school favorites are mixed - an ideal place where friends gather and martinis are sipped under the starlit desert sky.

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.

Had the Eggs Benedict with house potatoes…asked to have eggs over medium (made to perfection). My friend had the Turkey Reuben with a dark green salad. He said both were very delicious and fresh. Restaurant is very clean, service is excellent, waiter brought over a bottle of water then brought me a bottle of my soda so I could refill my glass when need be. Nice touch. Ambiance reminds me of the cool coffee houses in Portland or Seattle.

About the restaurant
Churrasco treats guests to an unforgettable Brazilian steakhouse experience through our chef-driven cuisine, world-class full bar, and unparalleled hospitality. At Churrasco, guests are surrounded in an energetic and luxurious atmosphere.

The Brazilian “Churrasco” has been a tradition for generations in Southern Brazil, where Gauchos (Brazilian cowboys) pierced large pieces of meat and slowly grilled them over open-flamed pits. Churrasco Brazilian Steakhouse carries on the churrasco tradition with rodizio (all you can eat) dining where you can enjoy 15 all you can enjoy meats (including beef, chicken, pork, lamb and sausage, all slowly spin-roasted, preserving their natural flavors and textures and sliced tableside) and a fresh market table with sides and salads all for one set price. It’s an experience you and your guests will never forget, and the high-quality food and exceptional service will have you coming back for more. We can’t wait to serve you!

About the restaurant
Boozehounds Palm Springs was established in 2020 and has served as a go-to restaurant for dog owners from LA, San Diego, Coachella Valley, and beyond.
Boozehounds was started by three friends for one simple reason… they loved dogs and dreamed of owning a place where people could take their pups, enjoy an awesome cocktail or fab meal, and socialize in style. Making sure the pup was the real VIP of course! Choose from the sexy and stylish dining room and lounge facing the gorgeous San Jacinto mountains, dine in the open-air atrium, or enjoy the picturesque vacation vibes at the cabana bar and patio. Who doesn’t love a little mai tai moment?
Both the Atrium and Patio are dog-friendly zones and offer water bowls and a pup-friendly menu. Please note all indoor spaces are human only.
