Visiting La Quinta
We had coconut shrimp, chicken sandwich, Kona coffee crusted ribeye, wine and cocktail. All were delicious and server was amazing!
Had a late lunch there. It’s so quiet now and not crowded. the food was great as usual. Had the filet mignon flatbread and cucumber martini Both were perfect.
Food and drinks are always excellent at Tommy Bahamas. Never have had a bad experience at this restaurant. They’re a little pricey, but well worth it.
Very socially distanced during Covid restrictions. Large outdoor patio with misters that take the outdoor temps down quite a notch. They said menu was limited but I couldn’t tell. Everything we had was delicious and the drinks were perfect. Best visit I’ve had there.
We love El Paseo Tommy Bahama... they are our favorite over Oahu, Maui & Vegas.
Awesome service and great food every single time
We had a great lunch! The crab salad was awesome and the coconut mojito delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and our server brought out the Key lime pie..OMG the best. Great time was had by all.
We are long time regular customers at Tommy Bahama in Palm Desert. The service and food are always excellent! Oscar took EXCELLENT care of us once again! We had the coconut shrimp, blackened fish tacos and their specialty tropical fruit drinks. You can't go wrong dining at Tommy Bahama. They were busy which is great!
Overpriced for what it is, but if you can afford it I would definitely recommend it! I always make a point to eat here when I'm in the desert. The food & cocktails are great. Somewhat of a limited menu but I always get the tacos and they are outstanding. Would recommend if someone is looking for a nice lunch/dinner place.
Great!!! We loved the food and atmosphere
A great experience even while under the COVID 19 restrictions. Can't sit at the bar yet but sat outside at a table. Still very enjoyable.
I thought the restaurant did a good job spacing the tables, notice menu is smaller and pricier but understand why. Service was excellent. Cannot believe people trying to enter without masks! Love your captiva!
We had a great early Father’s Day celebration. Always good. thanks
We have always loved the food and drinks here. Always delicious and refreshing. This time the food was bland and the Bloody Mary's were not drinkable. I know this was the first week opened since Covid-19 so we will give it another try. Service was outstanding as usual.
We were promptly seated and were served by Oscar, who is EXCELLENT! We always have a nice time at Tommy Bahamas and this visit was great too. We had their specialty non-alcoholic cocktails which are delicious. We had the coconut shrimp and the jerk tacos. Pina Colada cake for dessert. With the special COVID rules in place, Tommy Bahamas are taking all of the precautions. Guests must wear masks entering and exiting the restaurant. All employees wore masks and gloves. The menus are disposable. Everything was spotless. I can't wait to go back!!
The food and cocktails are always delicious! And the ambience is fabulous. I always make this a must dine at while in Palm Springs.
Waiter Carlos was amazing. Helpful sensitive to Covid issues; eager to assure our dining experience was the best!
Had the best salmon I have ever had. It was their special for the day with mango salsa, jasmine rice, and arugula I believe… It was fantastic as always!!
Great job combining COVID safety with great customer service! Good experience.
The past 3 times we have been to restaurant it has been for a special occasion. Birthdays, anniversary which we have let open table as well as the restaurant know.
We only come there a few times a year because of cost and location We used to get a complimentary dessert, but now not even a Happy Anniversary greeting
Why ask if it is if you don’t acknowledge it.
TB handled C19 seemingly very well although we could not see what happens in the kitchen.
The food as always was very tasty although probably not as healthy as I would prefer - it juts tastes so damn goo!
It was a special occasion because we hadn’t been out in 3 months! Tommy’s did not disappoint. The service was careful, masked, respectful, and excellent. The food was fabulous as always. We were kept several feet away from other diners. We were just so happy to be out!
Tommy Bahama is always wonderful! The patio is a great place to meet friends and enjoy the breeze, the fans and the misters. We always have a fine time!
Great job opening after the pandemic. Extra clean and respectful of space. Even had a good happy hour
This place is going above and beyond to make patrons safe!
Social distancing and masks were worn. We could remove our masks after being seated. There was only one sanitized wipe for after dinner. Best to always have your own wherever you go. Could have had better attention. Especially since it wasn't crowded. Food and drink was excellent.
We love Tommy’s. We’re regulars and are there once a week. The staff is wonderful, food is tasty, drinks are good.
In spite of everything they have to do to comply with new rules and make it safe for patrons, we had a great meal and pleasant evening. Staff were incredible and very personable and attentive.
Had a reservation and were seated right away. Unfortunately the porch was closed due to
the heavy rain during the day. So the loud band was annoying. We asked to be seated as
far away from the music as possible. They obliged our request. We ordered cocktails and
they were not good. Very weak. We complained to the server and he sent a manager over
who brought extra booze for us to add to our drinks. Made our visit much happier😀
Fabulous atmosphere, service, and food. Loved the outside seating; gorgeous views!
Always a favorite no matter where the location!
We love dining at Tommy Bahamas for lunch and dinner. This visit we sat outside for dinner. It was very busy! The setting, food and service are great. JACOB took excellent care of us! We had the battered fish sandwich, Cole slaw and cajun mahi mahi tacos. Pineapple Creme Brûlée for dessert! Everything was delicious. We went shopping downstairs after dinner!
Consistently very good. The staff is always great. Very friendly, attentive and informative. As a result, the service is excellent. We love coming here and will continue to enjoy it.
Everything was good. Slightly bust so water's forfot to bring more tea after requesting it. Had to remind her. Her overall service though was good.
The table was in a good spot, we can feel the wind coming in from the side door. It was a beautiful afternoon to celebrate the passing of our family member.
Better for lunch with a small group of friends than for dinner. Crab cakes were excellent the crab soup USED TO BE SUPERB not so much anymore.
We eat here every year past 10 years. It just seemed off. Coconut prawns cold and dry. Coke/Pepsi flat and water downed. Filet was good but one was too rare from what we ordered. Asparagus delivered before entree. One entree delivered well before others. Servers seemed rushed and stressed.
We will not go back, sorry to say.
Our server was wonderful (a young lady from Bali). The food was very good and the only real ding is 1) noise level is pretty loud and 2) the overall cleanliness of the dining area and the bathroom needs work. We love Tommy Bahama restaurants both here in Palm Desert and on Maui (recently ate there twice in 10 days).
We have been there in the past with good experiences. This time not at all.
