Tropicale is always good. The specials are wonderful and most visits I never look at the regular menu 'cause there is always something interesting among the specials.
We love sitting outside which is very pretty and good people watching. Service is good as well.
Took mother-in-law for a Christmas present. Paid for by her son who is working as an accountant, his treat! First time he has ever done so, the last time we ate here was her treat for his graduation. This is a special restaurant for special occasions like those!
Tropicale is always fun to go to. Six of us met for brunch on the patio and we had a great time. The food can sometimes be hit or miss, but our meal this time was great. The service is always good and the cocktails are great. When we want to go somewhere festive, Tropicale is our go to place.
Fantastic brunch on Sundays, our server was wonderful. I am celiac and she really looked after me. Best Bloody Marys in Palm Springs.
While on a date celebrating 6 months with my beau, we were seated next to a couple of gentlemen who were very negative and complained about everything, and one kept using he cell phone flashlight to read the menu. He blinded me several times, and the restaurant was not at all dark enough for such behavior. One complained about the food before he even put it in his mouth! In addition, they began arguing over the nuances and minutia of different sects of christianity. At a dinner in what I consider to be quite a nice place, I felt their behavior was despicable and their choice of argumentative conversation distasteful. I quietly asked our incredible and understanding server if we could be moved, and explained that I just didn't want to be seated next to such negative people for the duration of my celebratory meal. Not only were we accommodated immediately, but the food was exquisite and the recommended wine was perfect. They really went above and beyond to turn my experience around, even though the situation was no fault of theirs. On top of that, when I told them we were celebrating 6 months together, we were treated to a delicious chocolate cake to share at the end of our meal. Thank you, thank you, thank you to our gracious server and the incredible management at this fine establishment. We will see you soon!
The evening was ok, I struggle with the review. Service was prompt but we had to ask for everything from bread to salt & pepper. The guest next to me spilt his glass of wine on the bench seat next to me and it got on my clothes. He dried it up and he got another glass of wine from the server but no one checked on me and I had to ask for napkins. I do appreciate the manager asking us how the night was because we “weren’t looking like we were having a good time”. However, once he found out a customer spilled wine and not a staff member he was finished the conversation and left.
Great dinner, we had the weekly special sea bass fixed to perfection. Our bartenders Mikey and Fernando were great. Never a bad meal or drink. We are weekly dinners and would highly recommend.
Always great, but for some reason, the fried chicken was subpar this time. 5 of us ordered it and they were all lukewarm and not super crispy. Everything else was great.
A regular spot for us. Interesting menu, wonderful specials, great service. Go there!
When friends come to town - often (yes!) - We always hit Tropicale. Total Palm Springs experience. Wonderful staff, excellent food. Check the Specials. Uptown Casual.
Wonderful evening with family on the patio. Great food, terrific service!
We always enjoy our meals at Tropicale
We love Tropicale! It’s our “go to” place when we want a special evening out. We are a little sad that they felt they needed to cover the patio dining area. We miss the old ambience, but we’ll adjust in time. Still our fave!
Great vacation find . We had an early dinner and then went to the street fair. I had the sword fish entree that was prepared with a wonderful tasting Thai coconut milk Curry. Cathy had the lamb meatballs small plate which she enjoyed. The small plate had 1 only two meat balls, but the humas and pita bread made the dish entree size.
The live jazz was a real plus.
Love...love....love Tropicale. The food and staff are the best
We went here based on our hotel’s recommendation and we were so blown away we ate their both nights we were in Palm Springs. I had my sixty-five year old aunt and my ninety year old grandmother with me and they both loved it. I was a bit nervous it would be too loud for my grandmother but for some reason the booths and the ceiling absorbed the noise well.
The food was incredible. The brie and prosciutto pizza was one of the best I’ve ever eaten in my life. Nana loves the spaghetti and meatballs. And the wine pours were generous! Very delicious Cobb salads and goat cheese salads as well. Excellent service. We will be back!
As good as always. Rarely disappoints.
One of my favorites Palm Springs restaurants over the years. Food is always very tasty and creative. Service is exceptional.
Thank you Tropicale.
We were nicely greeted right away and shown to a patio seat. Our food was delicious & service beyond reproach. Sean is terrific & we are looking forward to our next experience there.
As always a very pleasant brunch at Tropicale! Sean my favorite waiter was perfect! Food was yummy and served hot. Great place for brunch or just drinks and a snack!
We were disappointed. Friends had recommended the restaurant but we felt rushed and as if the restaurant was sort of an up-scaled Denny's. The seating was fairly "commercial." The server seemed committed to getting our order quickly (we thought because he likely got paid based on the number of tables he could turn in a night). We had a taster's plate and a salad. The taster plate was sort of thrown together with a Vietnamese spring roll mashed up against a cucumber salad. The net result was that the spring-roll self-destructed as soon as we picked them up. The flavors were OK but we would prefer a higher quality and nicer presentation. Wine prices were at least 25% higher than they should have been for the quality of the wine. We will NOT return there.
Tropicale never ceases to please. Great, attentive service. Fun staff. Quality food. Puts some other pricier Palm Springs restaurants to shame. Always a wonderful evening!
The fried chicken was amazing. The service outstanding.
Food was great. Service even better. Very attentive staff. Atmosphere was perfect! 5 stars! We will be back!
We were a party of 4 on Friday December 7th and as usual I am in love with Tropicale. All of our food was wonderful EXCEPT the fried chicken which I have ordered many times. The issue was not the chicken but the presentation was very unappetizing. The spinach was grey and slimy. This has never happened before. I was with my granddaughter and she said she would be embarrassed if I sent it back (which I wanted to believe me!).
With friends...a choice we OFTEN make...always wonderful for food, service and ambiance...always feel welcomed and leave PERFECTLY happy with the evening...AND our friends and family have a great time!!!
Always good food and service
Prompt seating, good service, friendly staff, clean, good food. Waiter gave us time to visit before ordering. Good selection. High noise level in the area we were seated.
Exxellent attentive service the menu was excellent and everyone in my party enjoyed their choices
After dining here, my wife and I were surprised at how highly this place was. The food was okay, but certainly not worthy of any acclaim. I had the duck and my wife had a pasta dish. The duck was flavorful but not particularly interesting. The pasta was fine, but again not outstanding by any means. The space and service were fine, but the waiter kind of annoyed 1us after pushing the significantly more expensive wine at us when we asked him to describe them.
The Tropicale is one of those places that is quintessential Palm Springs and absolutely perfect for out-of-town guests. The food is always excellent, from the starters through dessert. The service is impeccable. The drinks are fantastic. AND, a night here with friends will not blow your budget out of the water.
Always THE place to go to be with friends and family over great food, perfect surroundings and friendly/attentive service!! Never disappointed...live in PS and here often...
We visit Tropicale about 2-3 times a week. Whether it's merely for cocktails, a brunch or dinner, they never disappoint. The environment is amazing and soooooooooooo Palm Springs; and the service is always attentive and uber friendly. There are a few restaurants in PS that have phenomenal food (and a price point to match), but none are as convivial as Tropicale.
First time there. Pricey but tasty and creative dishes.
Always love Tropicale. Great supper club ambience and always good foods, from small plates to a full dinner. Grea5 cocktail menu too.
The atmosphere was somewhat frenetic as there was a large crowd. Service was extremely slow and very occasional. We never did get the soup which we had ordered. Waited forever for the main course, which was a good but way too large schnitzel. The accompanying broccoli was cold. The chocolate chip gelato was good.
Great food and service. Excellent staff. The ambience was perfect and easy to talk and hear each other
Food was excellent and service was really good EXCEPT the meal came out on top of ordering cocktails. I felt rushed.
Fantantastic Eggs Benedict, and a relaxing patio. Service is attentive.
Excellent service & food. Best outdoor patio in the valley.
