This is our 4th visit to Tropicale, and 2/4 for overall experience. Twice, we've had amazing experiences, but our latest visit to celebrate my son's birthday was sadly not up to par. The problem is the service. Some servers clearly don't want to be there and you feel as though you are a liability rather than a welcome guest. It's really too bad because the food is very good and the ambiance is lovely. Bit we waited for many items (drinks, napkins, water) and it felt like they were simply waiting for us to leave. Because of the inconsistency, we will think twice before choosing Tropical as our top pick to take guests. I think management has to care more about the attitude of the servers.
I forgive you for my second last meal. My last meal, sushi Sunday, with the small plates, was heaven on earth. And RJ or JR? Was an authentic natural server: attentive and informative. Can't wait to come back🌴
Came with my son for my birthday dinner and it was great. We shared an app special - spicy shrimp, he had the burger, and I had filet... delish!
Another fabulous Sunday Brunch at one of the best restaurants on Palm Springs. Love the outdoor dining. The bar bites are awesome too. You can't beat the service and ambience. Will be back soon.
this place is fun and delicious! I can't wait to come back and dine again.
Very good food and fun atmosphere. Enjoyed the smll plates and the fresh baked cookies!!
Lovely evening — again!
Outdoor seating is always our first choice.
Great time even though we were charged full price for Happy Hour small plates.
The energy & ambiance are always so much fun. Staff is knowledgeable & attentive, love this place whenever in the desert.
Stopped in for a couple of drinks and a quick bite. The hums is great, as always the bartenders Chris and Rufu took care of us. We are weekly diners and would recommend any time.
Dan gave us excellent service and the staff were excellent in keeping our water, bread, etc. serviced.
We totally enjoyed our evening here! Huge martinis and the food was outstanding!
Birthday celebrations. Table was too crowded. Too dark to see food. Service good
Not as great an experience as previous visits. Service was friendly but spotty and rushed.
First time. Great service. Friendly, fun. Little high the prices for Happy Hour. For two with one beer we paid 60.00 with tips.
Great experience, as always. The noise level is sometimes more than I'd like at Tropicale but the food is consistently good and the service welcoming.
Excellent restaurant with a true Palm Springs vibe
We visited The Tropicale twice during our recent stay in Palm Springs. The Tropicale is very popular and thus very busy. The staff tends to become overwhelmed and not attentive. On the second visit one dish was served piping hot while the other a seafood entree was served lukewarm. After flagging down the waiter, he briskly took the now cool dish away. By the time the seafood entree was replaced, my partner had already completed his meal. So not a pleasant dining experience. No follow-up or apologies from management.
Still recommend - but maybe more for happy hour ...
We went to enjoy our last night in Palm Springs in the outdoor patio. The service was prompt and friendly and the food was delicious. The only problem was the weather was very cool and the heaters were not near us.
Great food and service. Will definitely go back.
LOVED this place ... fun people of all types and ages - seemed like EVERYONE was smiling in there ... really a VERY positive vibe. We even went TWICE during our vacation stay ... "Mallory" and "Scotty" were really great servers /// will def go back !!!
Tropicale is our go to place in Palms Springs and we are locals. The chef is fabulous. And the bar is the best in all of Palm Springs. Our special hangout...
Love this place!
Food was amazing and server went above and beyond
Food has really gone downhill. Lamb Meatballs were all filling, didn't even taste like lamb. Short ribs were not fall-off-the-bone like previous occasions and the fried chicken, with very few mashed potatoes, was soggy, like it had been sitting around for a while.
Always great. Service is above there’s in the area.
Always a pleasure eating here.
Best restaurant in Palm Springs. And our favorite, we go at least once a week. Dianna
Really enjoyed the food! Especially the Pork Chop. I
Very dependable venue for a fun evening with good food and drink. Always good for a first nighter arriving in Palm Springs.
Tropicale is a very special place because it is super chic but you’re made to feel like family.
Thanks for another great dinner!! Always great to visit when I'm in town.
Never disappointing. Great atmosphere, friendly service, and good food.
We love this place. The hosts and wait staff are amazing, in addition to the great atmosphere and delicious food. Thank you! Tim
Tropicale is a great go-to for any occasion! One of the best in town!
The Tropicale has a unique menu for brunch with optional bottomless mimosas. The beef brisket burger is my favorite. The patio is such a comfortable area and the staff is fantastic.
Fun and yum. That’s all you need to know ❤️🌴
Busy at 7pm. Food was excellent and the service was superb. Richard was our waiter and he made sure we had a lovely dessert for our birthday boy! Highly recommend the Restuarant.
So delicious! Must try the coconut martini and southern fried chicken!
Great dinner, we are weekly diners. The catfish on the specials menu was great, the burger from the main menu was cooked perfectly.
Great service from our bartender Chris.
