Food was not as good as the last time I went there. I got the duck confit ravioli. The pasta was thick and hard, not a melt in your mouth pasta. Also, the watermelon salad was not good either. The service and ambiance was great.

This was my second time eating here.
The service is absolutely wonderful. Thank you David for being such as tentative waiter. Even though there's a new chef, I absolutely loved the new menu and food. This is a gourmet experience not to miss. I don't know of any other place in the area that has food prepared like this.

Ambiance was great. Service wasn’t very attentive, had to ask almost three times for extra focaccia before they brought it.

The atmosphere was lovely. The staff was friendly, but it took 20 minutes to get a drink at the bar. Everyone who was STAYING at the hotel that sat at the bar AFTER us were served drinks first, even though ours had been ordered already. We we got them they were delicious (as were the appetizers wer ordered) and the servers were really sweet. Unfortunately, my friend I was having dinner with wanted to leave by the time we got our table for dinner, because it was too hot out for her.... it was a bummer for me and the menu looked amazing!

Arranged to meet friends for a drink before dinner but restaurant has no bar unless your a hotel guest

The misters were everywhere and caused unnecessary high humidity , we left wet and not from spilled water !!

Starters were overpriced and one bite and they were gonec

Ravioli was dreadful

Grouper fish was excellent

Don’t think will be going back anytime soon

My husband and I went for our 17th anniversary and it was amazing! The food, staff and ambience were fantastic! We are at several of the other fine dining places nearby during our stay and this was by far our favorite! We will definitely go back next time we are in town!

I really enjoyed the beauty of the restaurant. Service was slow and it wasn't busy. It didn't bother me because I was relaxed but the other people at my table were annoyed. It's a stunning place, I would go again.

Sorry to say I put off trying this place til restaurant week. We're locals that happen to own a market & cafe in Palm Springs. Both my husband's Pork chop & my poulet houssein (fancy French word for CHICKEN!) were overcooked. The flavors were middle ground but I refused to send my food back leaving my husband to eat alone while they made the other only selection on the Restaurant week menu. GM said nothing though they DID take of $25 (1/2 the cost of my plate) & bought my 1st cocktail (more than generous & totally unexpected). Our server was gracious & I genuinely offered that the Chef or perhaps Cook be informed.

What a shame - had high hopes and could have been nice.
Starters came before we had even got drinks - and mussels were not fresh at all. They turned my partners stomach. Leading me to think that it’s not made to order.
Main course was extremely bland, didn’t bother with dessert. For over $200 for dinner it was appalling.

Terrible Terrible. I visited there 4 weeks ago entertaining clients for their birthday and it was the worst experience. We maintained our cool but literally every table around us was ranting and raving about how terrible the restaurant was. It was unbelievable. I called the next day to vent my frustration and the manager was very nice and asked to me to please come back and he would take care of everything and assured me the night I visited was highly unusual and knew of all the chaos. So last weekend, 4/27/19 I visited and let the restaurant know that manager Heron asked me to come back and that I would be taken care of. Heron, the manager, was there that night and he never came over to greet us or say "thanks for returning". To be fair he sent over 2x glasses of champagne but when the bill came only discounted $30.00. I spent $600 on my 1st visit and he asked ME to come back and this was the best he could do. Overall, I didnt say a word, he is a Terrible manager and does not cater to his customer and was not worth my energy to complain. It was a Saturday night and literally NO customer...Do not visit this place over priced, fair food and terrrible customer service by the manager...I blame him 100%

The outdoor ambiance was lovely, and it was easy to get a reservation at prime dinner time. However: the food was very average tasting and overpriced. We left feeling a little unsatisfied by our meal overall.

I was at SO.PA a year ago and had a wonderful experience so when I had an opportunity to bring a group of 6, I talked up the place quite a bit. Food was mostly very good but my Duck breast was terrible. We had a very late reservation which I asked several times to move up and was told no. When we arrived, there was hardly anyone in the restaurant so wondering why you made us wait so late. The service was very sketch, not professional or good follow up. ie we were drinking bottled water and had to keep asking for more. Slow service, not attentive and waiter seemed very frazzled. I do not think I would return but makes me sad because such a beautiful venue.

They have a new chef who is absolutely terrific. The food now matches the decor.
Great place for a date night. Make sure there is no rain in the forecast though as it is all open seating outside.

Contrary to what your system says, we never ate at this restaurant. They were they courteous and called me a few days before the reservation to inform that they had a private party and could no longer accommodate the reservation. I was fine with that but I asked them to cancel the reservation on your Open Table system but they never did and I was not able to cancel it myself. I continued to get emails from both you and them confirming my reservation but when I called back the morning of the original reservation they indeed confirmed they were having a private event and no reservations were being accepted. So it was all very confusing. We will still try again next time.

This was a real diamond in the rough! You can drive right past it and never know. Once you go thru the gate it is magical. Beautiful ambience and oh so sexy! The wait staff was so accommodating and helpful. Super nice! The food was gourmet and delicious to boot! Portions were perfect and not too much at all. The menu is by no means overwhelming Everything was fabulous and full of great flavors in every bite! I HIGHLY recommend to everyone and if you want romance BINGO!!! A++++
