The food and service at the Steakhouse was exemplary! They were so flexible on splitting plates and attentive to every need and request. The filet mignon and prime rib were incredibly tender and cooked to perfection exactly as ordered. Next trip to Rancho Mirage will definitely include dinner here at least once during our trip!

Our waiter was wonderful. However my medium steak was completely rare and cold on the inside. By the time the waiter came back around to us I had lost my appetite for my steak :( it was such a bummer.

Had dinner last night in the Steakhouse. The lobster was overcooked, my filet Mignon was dry and something called Okinawa Sweet Potato was very unpleasant to look at let alone it lacked taste. The overall meal was in my opinion not worth trying it again. I used to enjoy their entrees but this time around I am stretching to give it even 2 stars, Seriously Aqua , what happened ???

For the first time in years of going to this teakhouse, I was not happy with the Oso Buco that I ordered. While it was tender, it did not taste very good and was very dry. Luckily I only ate a couple bites but I still had stomach issues after I left the restaurant. I give credit to my waiter and the manager who did takeThe osso bucco off my check. I will definitely return in the future to eat there again because I am hoping this was only a one time issue.

Everything about the evening was wonderful. The service was fantastic. The menu had several options , and was not overwhelming. The server checked on us enough to be helpful but not overbearing. Food was cooked exactly to order. I look forward to returning, especially for the desert!

Very bad Took over one and one half hour to get our food . Very slow. Crab legs were not the guality normally that we are served. New bartender that was very poor. Forgot to put our order in and we had to keep asking him He finally went back to the kitchen and talk to someone. Arrived at 5:50 and finished at 7:50. Not good.

I would give this restaurant 5 stars, but they had a couple of habits that turned me off. We had an early reservation at 5:30. We were told our table was not ready and would we please go to the bar and have a drink. On the way to the bar, I noticed that the dining room was set and just about completely empty. We went into the bar and all they had were tall seats with tall tables. We were with my 88 year old father who has mobility problems and uses a walker. No way would it be possible for him to get into a seat. We walked out of the bar and I told the hostess that we would just wait right next to her at the hostess table until she found a seat for us. Immediately we were seated. I noticed that they had some happy hour cocktails so I tried to order one and was told that the lower price was for the bar only. They have a special early bird dining option that they advertise on their website. No where on the menu does it mention the early bird special. I had to ask and she then told me the specials out loud because they don't have it written down anywhere. The early bird special is a really good deal. $32.00 for your choice of caesar salad or soup, your choice of 5 oz. filet mignon, a double cut pork chop or salmon. All are served with potatoes and vegetables. The meat was cooked to perfection and we ordered the special bleu cheese crust which made it even more delicious. Service was good. Our server was Patty who did a great job with our meal.

We had a nice booth that was located as far as possible from the restaurant's entrance which is inside the casino. Still we could smell the casino cigarette smoke wafing in. The whole restaurant is impacted by the smell and it effects the taste of your food.

Very nice place, service, staff and food was excellent. Only negative is the wine list needs to be expanded. Great steak but I did not think my wife’s crab cakes were good, very marginal.

I was however impressed and would come back for sure.

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the restaurant was; the service levels are high and the staff well trained and aware. Our dinner was really good. Our only complaint on the "surf and turf" style menu item we selected was that the lobster was dry - but the steaks and the rest of the meal were excellent. It's too bad you have to enter from a smoke-filled casino - we did smell of cigarettes upon returning home. We would definitely come back and look for a different route into the restaurant.

I dined here for my birthday on Saturday and enjoyed a delicious meal. The Steakhouse salad was the bomb and my filet Oscar was cooked to perfection.
My date had a delicious Malbec at the recommendation of our server and he was not disappointed.
The restaurant did have a faint cigarette odor which was more noticeable at first.
Beautiful restaurant with great food.

Entire experience was 5-star! Angel, our server, had perfect timing. Caesar salad was delicious, perfectly chilled, and large as was the wedge. Prime rib was awesome. Loved being able to bring a great wine from my cellar for a small corkage fee. All in all ... can’t wait to make my next reservation!!

Excellent food and service! We had the caesar salad it was very fresh and tasty. We love anchovies and they are happy to add brown or white if you like. The New York steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The sides are really good and very large. So one side serves two.
Our waiter Juan was very attentive without rushing us. Excellent service! Hector behind the bar is also first rate. We eat here often when we are in the Palm Springs area. The price is not cheap but you get what you pay for here. We look forward to our next visit.

The Steakhouse exceeded our expectations! We went for the early bird special and had such a great time, came back the next night as well. Stellar wine collection and truly stellar customer service. Gary did a great job as our server, and the new GM Otto brings a great presence and takes the time to connect with every guest. Salmon and Petit Filet - delicious!!!

The food is always amazing. The service is impeccable. I just wish they wouldn't take so long to seat you. This happens every time we go so it's not an isolated incident. I don't know if it's done for anticipation but it's rather annoying.

We have been to The Steakhouse many times and have always loved the Tomahawk steak. This time, however, the flavor of the steak tasted like it was not aged enough. Also, my husband ordered the sea bass and it was overcooked and dry. The service was friendly and good as usual. I hope the food will be up to par next time.
