So, I eat here very often. Usually for lunch. They do not take lunch reservations, but it is in one of the most beautiful shopping areas in the world , so if you go to the restaurant at say 1130 and put your name in for 1230 and walk around, you can have a table at 1230 pretty much confirmed.
When the place is jam packed, which is often, then the service is pretty poor. The waiters are very busy and it is hard to get anyone to come back to the table for water, or dressing etc. Everyone is very nice, but a runner should follow up at regular intervals to help the waiter to keep the table going during the meal.

We made a reservation and we’re sat at the entrance. Wonder why we even made a reservation. Could of walked off the street and got terrible seating.
Also we wanted to add two more people to our table but open table said there was no availability. But there was a table for two right beside us and a ton of other tables open. So we could of easily had our friends come.
Food was great.

We did get the last early reservation - it was Valentines day, and the table was right at the entrance, and was very noisy - but the food and service were great! I always like to recommend this restaurant and always take company to it as the menu is varied enough to suit everyone.

Love all TB restaurants. Sat outdoors on the patio. It was a bit chilly but they provided heaters. Wait staff very attentive. Had the coconut shrimp...AMAZING!

We always have dinner on the rooftop at Tommy's when we visit The Desert. Make sure you request outdoor seating when you make your reservation.

Good food.
Nice patio.
Nice steel drum music, but it was too loud.
Server was brusque, cool and impatient. I wouldn’t want her as a server again.

It was a beautiful night, and we expected to sit outside. However, hostess told us because we had not requested outside on Open Table ( who new?) that it would be 1 1/2 hour wait for outside! It was VERY noisy inside, hard to even have a conversation! We were disappointed as we had out of town guests!

We had a wonderful lunch, great food and wine. We each had the special- the shrimp cocktail, which never disappoints. The only thing that bothered us was those "birds". They were swooping right through our table!

We keep coming back. Food was freshens tasty. We had terrific salads that werehealthy and generous is portions. (Chicken mango and shrimp noodle). Gazpacho soup was delicious but t pricey. We will be back.

Appetizer: coconut shrimp with papaya mango chutney. A very sweet dish. Skimpy amount of chutney. Includes at least 1 1/2 cups of Island Slaw, which was also very sweet. Shrimp were a reasonable size for the price and were properly cooked and juicy.
Entre: Baby Back Ribs: Properly cooked, juicy. Too sweet. Served with another 1 1/2 cups Island Slaw. Potato/cauliflower mash was tasty.
Entre: Fillet Mignon: Cooked as ordered (med-rare) but blue cheese was not melted into the steak. Potato/cauliflower mash was good.
Bread was served with a sweet cinnamon butter but server was happy to provide plain butter.
If you like sweet, this is the place for you!
