    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 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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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😀 Might return.

    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!

    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).
