Terrific service wonderful food and really upscale ambience
The food comes very Quick, A bit too Quick. It would be Nice if there was more time to enjoy
Such a fun atmosphere to gather with friends. Fun Fun
Ausgezeichnetes Essen mit super Cocktails, und das zu guten Preisen - einfach top
Very impressed with the service. Food was delicious! We ordered from the brunch menu and I had the frittata. WOW, not only was it beautiful to look at it was also delicious to eat!
Great brunch! The salmon salad is great! Yummy ! The endless mimosas are the bomb!
I tried the malted strawberry waffles for the first time Sunday. Yum!
The Saturday night experience at Tropicale was abysmal, really subpar for that restaurant.
After a delayed seating of 15 minutes (ok it was busy), the wait for initial contact with the server Karen(?) took another 15-20 minutes and that pattern continued downhill from there. We waited for so long to have the entrée dishes removed that again, after another 20 minutes I removed them myself. Never did anyone check back to see if the appetizer or meal was ok.
The biggest disappointment was their failure to recognize my friend’s birthday even though they confirmed the notation I had made in the OpenTable reservation. Not only that but the server failed to even ask if we wanted desert – we felt like they needed to turn the table for bigger parties.
On leaving, I did have words with the manager about the total lack of service we experienced. Bottom line, irrespective of the long wait at the table, the total lack of service, and the failure to recognize the birthday request, the answer was the same; I’m sorry, we have rules and there is nothing I can do about it.
Then, the following day I received an email from OpenTable saying that Tropicale listed me as a no-show. You want to see the Amex receipt to prove I was there? I had to prove to them I was in fact there.
I believe they listed me as a no show in retaliation for my complaints regarding the service & birthday. They were neither accommodating or apologetic for our poor experience. Up until last night, the Tropicale was our favourite restaurant. No more. What a crappy birthday experience.
I really don’t think they care about anyone, locals included because business is so good, there will be another round of people tomorrow to fill the tables and they don’t need my business. This is a restaurant that I go to 2-3 time a month. Again, no more.
one of our favorite restaurants in palm springs. We're regulars
Big portion. Great porkchop.
A vibrant atmosphere greets you as you enter. The outdoor seating area was fun and had misters so you could feel a coolness on the hot days. The music was great. The food was excellent all around. Our waiter was over the top!
We love this place and always have a wonderful time
It was actually great and they made my best friend feel special on his birthday. Every bit counts with the candle on a pastry.
Another great experience at The Tropicale. Fun, friendly server. Prompt service. Delicious food.
Absolutely fantastic evening. Loved the food. The ambiance was everything we’d hoped. Scotty was a true professional. He was what every special dinner should include. He made our 1st Anniversary dinner one to fondly remember.
The food and atmosphere are both exceptional. Now that they've added more misters, it's comfortable on the patio even on the hottest days.
Friend from Indian was in town
The service and food here are always excellent. The price is affordable and the drinks are a great value. I usually eat only small plates when there and always leave with a full belly and smile on my face.
Good atmosphere. Nice food. Well presented. Unfortunately the meal was ruined by our waiters attitude when we queried our bill ! I had ordered a 12 yr old whisky at the end of the meal. When the bill arrived I had been charged for an 18 yr old. When I brought this to the attention of our waiter he insisted I had ordered it even though he had repeated the order back to me. Then he stated that they had ran out of my order so hadn’t thought to tell me but just bring me and charge me for the more expensive whisky ! To then top it off I was asked to follow him to the pay the bill st the bar via chip and pin amongst all the waiters and servers. Not impressed.
We will not be going back !!!!!
Once again a great meal, Scotty was a blast! Ask for him!
We ordered the fried chicken, it came out fast but was cold and tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen. I wonder if they premake them? Will have to think twice about ordered that again.
Once again we were not disappointed. Our server Scottie is the best.
All the food was prepared perfectly, drinks from Rufo at the bar were done perfectly.
We are weekly diners at Tropical never a bad meal or service.
This place is good but not always great. I love the drinks but they are overpriced outside of Happy Hr
Food was Excellent and Sean, our waiter was as well!
Dinning @ Tropical was cooperating . Even the weather in their new backyard patio was perfect.
The food ^ service wonderful. Thank U for a delightful evening.
I love your food and have twice been disappointed to come for sushi on Sunday and you didn't have any because of a holiday on MONDAT! I was there on Sunday; I just don't understand what the holiday had to do with having sushi. Huge disappointment! Plus it's just TOO DARK!!!!!! I cannot see your menu without a light. Luckily my phone has one but I can't even see the person across from me. The food is good; I have to give you that. But I think a brighter room would be more welcoming. I just can't see in your place.
I had to ask a server for the usual bread basket. He plops it down without any oil/vinegar. OK, if I can catch him once more when he whizzes past my table, I'll try to ask for it. One exception to the bad service is a nice fellow named Scottie. Had him twice now and he is perfectly attentive and friendly. He's the exception.
In Palm Springs for Labor day weekend and we decided to have dinner at the Tropicale after reading the reviews on Yelp. Started off with the coconut shrimp and it was delicious. For the main course I ordered the pork chop. Let me tell you, it was 16oz of pure bliss! So glad the server recommended I try it..... If you want to try a new restaurant in Palm Springs with a great atmosphire, the Tropicale is the place. I'll definitely have dinner there again next time I'm in town.
No better place in the desert - no matter what you order - you’ll find it all spectacular
The staff was great and very accommodating the birthday cake we brought!
This place is like family. You will always have great service from everyone, the food is tasty and the drinks are fabulous!
Love Tropicale!!! Our favorite spot in Palm Springs. We are locals and think Tropicale is THE place to eat and drink in Palm Springs.
Great vibe, good food, knowledgeable and friendly staff, amazing Sunday brunch. We’ll be back next time we’re in Palm Springs.
Food and service was great as always. This is one of favorite go to restaurants in Palm Springs. The staff are great and the food and beverages are always delicious.
One of Palm Springs best restaurants. The food and service is always excellent and I have never been disappointed since they first opened. One of my favorite places to eat.
Great service from our bartender Rufo. The food on the weekly specials is awesome, this week it was fried catfish fixed perfectly and the egg spaghetti lobster was out of this world.
Weekly diners, never a bad meal or service, highly recommend bartenders Mikey, Rufo and Fernando best waiter is Scottie.
Best place in Palm Springs.
As always, we had a fantastic experience at The Tropicale. The service was great. We enjoyed the entire evening
One of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. The food, ambience and drinks are excellent. I had the fried chicken which was moist and the breading was perfect. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
Always a fun place with great food and service!!! Price is also reasonable.
