One of our favorite restaurants in Palm Springs! Always a treat.
Menu has several unique items. Food was delicious and the service was great! Have eaten here in the past, and will definitely be eating here again soon.
We had a wonderful meal with terrific service. We felt safe as all of the staff wore masks and we did too when they came to our table.
Our favorite place in Palm Springs!
They don’t seem to know it’s Covid. Manager standing inside, talking to guests without a mask. Tables close together. We won’t be back.
Another fabulous brunch outdoors at Tropicale. The best brunch in the Coachella Valley.
For brunch, Don't miss the flat iron steak....cooked to perfection and exactly as ordered. house-made gravelox is the best in town. Service is polite and attentive. We love Tropicale
Another Wonderful Birthday brunch, thanks to Rance, our waiter Raymond and guests around us, wishing me a Happy Bday! I guess when you see a bottle of Champagne, it is a celebration . . . Had the Brisket Burger, loved it and the fab onion rings, but went piggy and asked for crispy bacon, which was divine. A GREAT time was had by all! Especially with my special dessert. YUM! It always feels like family here, and the entire staff from front door to patio is a very special group of people. The BEST!
Service was great. Food, wonderful as always. Wait staff marvelous.
Sterling the server was on point. Brought us everything we asked for. Excellent food and service.
Great martinis, delicious fried chicken and fun setting. Tropicale has done a nice job of converting its parking lot into an outdoor dining garden since Covid restrictions have shut down the inside dining room once again. Great evening out.
The Tropicale is our go to restaurant for a really fabulously fun evening and great food! The outdoor patio is perfect for social distancing, and the service is fantastic! We were having a anniversary celebration, and it could not have been more fun and perfect! We will be back again soon!
great food and service. our best night out in PS. thank you!
Food OK. Not a great value. Overall experience fine. Service great.
I have dined here many times (pre-COVID). They did a great job with all of the precautions. Food was excellent. Only thing. I thought menus have to be disposable or online which they were not.
Enjoyed sitting near the perimeter for social distanced dining for six people. Overall no issues other than two guest’s meals came out five minutes later and were the same as two others that came out first.
Birthday but no one asked about it
Aside from being greeted by a bearded host who refused to wear a mask (it was hanging from his ear) it was a good experience. But this almost made us turn around at the door. Bartenders were also preparing drinks maskless. Makes one wonder about what's going on in the kitchen too. Spacing between tables was way too close. On top of one another. It's my opinion, restaurants not following these rules, during this period (brand new all time high in US cases today! 80K) should be immediately closed. While it would be a shame, so would a dinner becoming a super spreading event, leading to multiple illnesses and death.
Having said that. Our waitress was lovely, attentive, and always near. Her recommendation of the Blood Orange Martini was a terrific. The fried calamari is pretty close to perfect. Fresh, crispy, but just a light batter.
Fried Chicken entree ($28) is as good as it gets in a restaurant like this, out here in Palm Springs. The Pork Chop ($42) was moist and not dried out. Served with a nice salad.
Fix the mask issues and this place is a winner.
This place is always a win. During Covid tho, the tables are a tiny bit too close. But luckily, I sat on the outermost area.
Friday night date night, Sunday sushi, you just can’t go wrong.
We had a great dinner at Tropicale. This week we had from the weekly specials menu Organic Turkey Burger with Muenster Cheese Bacon Strips - Jalapeño Pickle Relish - BBQ Aioli - Fries and Crispy Boneless Southern Fried Chicken, marinated in Buttermilk & Paprika Mashed Potatoes & Country Gravy - Corn, Black eyed Pea & Lima Bean Succatash
Everything was cooked to perfection. Our server was on top of everything made sure our drinks were taken care of, fresh water, and very attentive.
We would highly recommend Tropicale.
We had a fantastic meal and solid drinks here while on our visit to Palm Springs. Cesar was wonderful and really looked after us... and even gave us a kind hello when our paths crossed the next morning. The outdoor seating was a little tight but also staggered an adequate to our liking. We will definitely make coming back a requirement on our next visit.
COVID has made most restaurants increase prices. Tropicale is no exception.
This place knocks it out of the park every time!!!
One of our favorite places to dine while in Palm Springs.
The drinks are plenty and the food is great. Try the PuPu Platter.
One of the most popular restaurants in Palm Springs, Tropicale continues to draw those who are interested in excellent food, an attractive atmosphere, and very professional servers. There are many great places to dine in Palm Springs, and Tropicale is certainly one of them. Indeed, they are among the "very best" in town. We love it and get there as often as we can!
Excellent food and ambience as always. Fernando, Camden and the rest of the team do an amazing job in providing excellent service!
Great service and great food!!
Patio seating tables were way too close to each other & considering the patio is not very open with high walls & roof. Guests were out of their seats without masks on. Did not feel very safe. Drinks watery. Sushi was good. Probably would not return any time soon.
We had the crab/avocado salad, which was great for lunch. Service was friendly but slow. A little disturbing to have the tables as crowded almost as close as they were prior to the Pandemic, and no other apparent hygienic measures apart from the servers wearing masks.
Great food as usual! Drinks and service on point. My only concern would be the distance in between tables, no social distancing at all. And it gets a bit too warm at noon. I think some extra misters/fans would help. I love this place anyway!
Good food, great service, very friendly. Will return soon!!
Perfect Palm Springs Brunch spot!
Great food and service. would recommend to anybody that loves good food!
No social distancing and the place was packed.
Very disappointed and we complained to the manager who could care less.
We will never go back.
Service and Food were perfect. BUT there was no adherence to COVID regulations. Social distancing was nonexistent, the indoor seating was supposed to be at 25%, the restaurant was packed. The waiting area was packed with people as well waiting for tables. HOW DO THEY MANAGE TO GET AWAY WITH THIS!!! It was to be a special occasion, our 10th anniversary, they made no mention no acknowledgement. Disappointed.
Everything was great, but felt like we were being rushed in & out!
We moved inside to a table Caesar was managing. First time out since breaking my ankle. Table was spaced which was calming. Room for my boot...love you. Rita and Michael
The ambience was amazing on the patio. We started out with the poo poo platter and the sangria that the bartender recommended, absolutely delicious. We will be back!!
Recent pandemic era dining allowed for indoor seating and it was great to see the restaurant alive and well with a slightly reduced-but-still-dynamic energy that made the evening with friends feel like pre-covid entertainment. Food was great as usual. Service actually felt improved and the cocktails are still fantastic. We even partook in an after dinner drink at one of the few barside tables. This place is still a solid favorite in Palm Springs.
