They won't let you sit unless you give your number. The food wasn't that good and it ended up being super expensive!
Great service, food could be better. We had the pupu platter, was served cold. We also had an ahi tuna roll, very good but we were unable to get wasabi even though it was clearly in the sauce they served. We like spicy, so wanted to add more.
Can’t go wrong here. Best place for brunch or dinner!
Still one of the best … if not the best in town.
Energetic atmosphere and noisy. Food was good. Loved the people watching
Always wonderful from the moment we walk in to the moment we leave. Large portions of delicious food. Energetic wait staff and the best atmosphere for a fun time. Although still a tad warm when its 115 like it was yesterday, with the misters outside we were actually fine!
Love this place!
Great historic vibe with indoor and outdoor bars. We were seated at an indoor table. Experienced exceptional service from Karissa who gave us all the time we needed with great knowledge of the menu. Never wanted to leave. Thank you
Great atmosphere, great waitress, and great drinks and food
My experience was super great our server Ashley was absolutely amazing and outstanding and was a super hard worker
Great outdoor dining. The misters kept us cool.
We have dined at The Tropicale over forty times.
The food and service are consistently good.
Our server last night was Nancy and she is so cordial, knowledgable
It was a wonderful evening.
We love our "Every Wednesday Lunch" at The Tropicale! This week we dined inside on a "hightop" table, and enjoyed not only the fab selections for lunch, but the view of entering and exiting interesting people, as we were pondering over our favorite cuisine choices. Once again, I chose the super spicy and yummy "Firecracker Shrimp" with a half order of the always tasty and perfectly made "Caesar Salad"! Hubby had the "Thai Lime Beef Salad" and loved it. He also loved a few shrimp off my plate. Grrrrrr. Spicy was the theme! Love the Staff, had fun chatting with Ranz, Ashley and our waiter Josh and our gracious Bus Boy! It is sophisticated and fun, comfy and chic without formality. Can't wait til next Wednesday!
With a friend…scallops divine!!! Great service…time to visit..good to be back!!
My husband’s Pork chop was under cooked with spoke with the waitress and she just ignored our concerns. It was our first visit and we didn’t know portion size. I have 2 small children 4 and 6. I ordered cheese pizza from the happy hour menu for them. I thought it would be a small portion they were as big as a small pizza. The waitress could have mentioned that the portion was large enough for the entire family. I would have only ordered 1 and they could have shared and there would have still been left over pizza. I read so any reviews before choosing the restaurant and was disappointed.
This used to be a great spot but the energy has become old and tired. It’s time for a refresh. The vents in the ceilings were covered with black dirt, the entire staff was maskless, the fried chicken was overcooked. I was so disappointed because we used to love this place. The service had a “Denny’s” type vibe, except you’re not paying Denny’s prices. Oh well!
Always an excellent meal and great service. It was hot tonight and they had us on the covered patio with misters. It was a delightful. A rotating menu of specials make this place exciting every time I visit.
Excellent top notch food, service as well.
We are weekly dinners, this week we had from the weekly specials menu, Jumbo Sea Scallops with Smoked Pimentón Butter Saffron Risotto with Spanish Sausage, Baby Clams & Peas - Micro Herbs
It was very good, you will never be disappointed with a meal at Tropicale. Highly recommend lunch, brunch and dinner.
We had an amazing brunch at The Tropicale from the delicious food to the service and the ambiance! The drinks were perfect too! So great we went back another night for late night drinks. Highly recommend visiting this fun restaurant!
Wonderful as always. Staff and food is always amazing and Tropicale bartenders are the best in the desert!!
Love the ambience! Live Carissa the server, she is amazing! Drinks are expensive but large and very strong so well worth it. Food is huge portions. All around enjoyable experience.
Great as always
Fun as always but very loud and crowded. Packed with bridesmaid parties.
This restaurant has the vibe of Palm Springs and the food is superb.
Our server was named Andrea. She was amazing. Extremely pleasant and great sense of humor. Really liked her. The food was good. Had the Salmon with Black Rice. And veggies.
The entire staff were without masks. Patrons were not required to wear masks as they entered the restaurant. Social distancing in the walk ways was non existent. While the State, County and City mask mandates are in place, Tropicale should comply.
Food was very good and staff friendly/attentive as always.
The restaurant is now charging 3.5% for Employee healthcare insurance. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. They are not my employees and I already tip them well. The owner is responsible for their employees and they healthcare not me. I WILL NOT GO BACK THERE.
Tasty cocktails and good food on a cool patio (misters!!) on a hot night. Fantastic service. Lots of happy energy outside and in the bar.
Dinner was great once again, we are weekly diners and you never have a bad meal at Tropicale. This week we had the Tropicale Cobb Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast & Applewood Bacon Diced Tomatoes, Hard-Cooked Egg, Avocado & Imported Roquefort - Balsamic Vinaigrette.
Great for a warm night in Palm Springs. Highly recommend lunch, brunch, dinner you will not be disappointed.
Okay evening - would have been better but for several large bridal parties that were out if control. Better experience on week days tather than the weekend with the bridal party gauntlet.
First time back since pre-Covid. Great service. Came early and sat us right away.
Fabulous and delicious like always!! Amazing ambiance!
Celebrated my birthday with delicious food & drinks at lunchtime. The covered patio had misters and kept us cool along with our waitress suggested margaritas! woohoo!
Lunch special was fresh tempura fried catfish and fries. Excellent doesn't even begin to describe the freshness and taste of the catfish
Great customer service
Great drinks and lovely patio for outdoor dining.
Great service, and the perfect Palm Springs atmosphere
Inside this time…hot weather and different!!! Otherwise, great food (spaghetti/meatballs), service (Aaron at his best!!) and booth(for great conversation)…nothing more to ask!!!
Another wonderful early afternoon, enjoying our fab Tropical lunch, seeing old friends - including the Staff - Ranz, Ashley & Josh, our Triple Threat to successful dining. The people watching is The Best! ALWAYS goes great with Champagne - and the perfect and yummy hamburger with crispy bacon for the Hubby, and for me, the Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken, which I adore! The small Caesar is a great partner for any Starter! Nothing like sitting at the fountain as the misters cool you off, as you sip Champagne or an iced tea! We feel like we are on an albeit "short" calming vacay - and no driving or airports! WHOOPEE!
When I visit Palm Springs I always like to dine at Tropicale.
The food is excellent and they accommodate my vegan diet eliminating what I can’t eat.
The patio gives us a pleasant atmosphere and we had a wonderful waiter who advised about drinks, food and he even was friendly with our dog.
Overall, it was a place to go back over and over.
