We always love Tommy Bahamas. Good food, great cocktails.
Outside area is much better than the cold interior decor.
My husband didn’t want to go but he was pleasantly surprised! We both liked our meal choices and desserts are delicious too!!
Surprisingly good and interesting food, good service and pleasant atmosphere.
The noise in the restaurant was unbearable
We were seated inside the restaurant and could not hear the person across the table
Music was loud and obnoxious !!!
We were moved outdoors Away from the music
And it was a nice relaxing and quiet setting
Never be seated inside unless you enjoy loud music
And do not care to have a conversation at dinner
Our servers, Sarah and Kate were outstanding!! They helped to make the evening memorable
Try one of their signature 'dishes', the Captiva Cocktail. It's not always on the menu but they'll usually make it for you if you ask them. Enjoy going to TB; cheerful environment, great food and great service.
The food was very good. The service was excellent. It was quiet and the atmosphere was very good for conversation. The goat cheese appetizer was great.
Such a happy place! Great friendly service. But ... please bring back the plantain chips!!!
It was your signature item. Thanks.
Food was very good the waitress we had that evening not so much.
Great food. I had roasted vegetables with shrimp and my husband had baked chicken. Best meal so far! Thank-you. The post card is also a nice touch.
Dinner, service was fabulous, request and outdoor seating and was denied that was a disappointment
Food and service always excellent. They have live music but it is quiet and subtle. Tonight it was a solo guitarist. Highly recommend.
The restaurant atmosphere is warm and inviting. The food is always delicious with lovely presentations. You have the option of eating outside which has a view of El Paseo and the mouns. The sea scallop sliders are my favorite! You can have 1/2 serving of desert if you like. The rolls are out of this world with cinnamon butter. The service is always superb.
We've always liked Tommy's. This time (no room out on the porch) we were not as pleased. Table in the back of the dining area lacked TB ambiance and that's where all the kids were. Our waitress was probably overworked though friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. She forgot several requests - had to be reminded to bring a 2nd glass of wine and requested water - and my 'handcrafted' martini came without the listed olive juice and blue cheese olives. Bar very slow, too. All a bit frenetic. Food was delicious, though, so that saved the night.
food was great. service was slow tp order and very slow in getting check, also had to have correction on bill, I was charged for a compilmentary idem, it was quickly corrected.
Second time during our trip to Palm Desert that we went to Tommy Bahama. Great store! Nice restaurant. We went with the pub type food this time- my husband had the french dip, which he said was excellent. I had the Cuban Sandwich which was also excellent. Not crazy about the yucca fries, though. Macadamia Crusted Goat Cheese was very nice, but not really worth the price. Pina colada cake is to die for, though! Highly recommend it.
We had a lovely waitress. Enjoyed our food. Soup portion was rather small. The French Dip sandwich a bit expensive for what it is. Overall though a nice relaxing meal.
We had a fabulous lunch outside on the patio for a special friend's lunch and it was amazing!
Great food and excellent waitress (Tiffany) which made the meal even more fun!
I truly enjoy the Tommy Bahama experience, however, on our recent visit they were out of the ingredients for one of their signature cocktails. Given the brand, Tommy Bahama should never be in this situation. It was disappointing.
We sampled most every appetizer, many specialty drinks, salads and desserts. Our server was very fun but I forget his name. We used our $50 gift cards (2). They did not rush us and they kept our cocktails full and the table cleared of used dishes. Very attentive server. Enjoyed all of the various items especially the puff tacos
My husband and I have been to multiple Tommy Bahama restaurants and love them. This one in Palm Desert was excellent. I had the salmon special which was delicious and my husband had the fish & chips which also was delicious. Pina Colada cake is always our favorite dessert! Yummy!
Good. We had Salad and Fish and Chips. Both were good.
We arrived on time and escorted to the most beautiful outdoor table. Our server Kimberly was there within minutes to help us navigate the menu of drinks. We then took our time and selected several items for tasting. The food was wonderful. The best blue crab on the West Coast. Kimberly was excellent. Checked on us regularly and kept us fed and full of drinks. We had a great time. We go at least 2 times a year, and we have never been disappointed.
The food just wasn’t that good. The people are very nice. We entered and it had a very fishy smell. We had the dip duo to start. The chips were tasteless and stale the guacamole was brown and looked like it was scooped a few hours before. The pub cheese had a crusty outside. Then we had the tuna tacos. The tuna just wasn’t that good. The fish tacos weren’t bad but nobody loved their food. They should take more pride in serving FRESH ingredients
I confess to being a big Tommy Bahama fan. Food is excellent, coconut shrimp is legendary. Food is all round excellent be it salad, fish or meat. My only grumble, there are so few of these restaurants around.
The Palm Desert location has excellent parking behind and easy access to the high end El Paseo shops. Out side is fine in winter but a little too hot in summer
We were 3 friends meeting for lunch. I made a reservation, which was good, as the restaurant was quite busy. We all 3 ordered the Chicken & Mango salad. It was underwhelming. The chicken was spotty - mine was great; one friend's was not cooked properly; the other friend's was tough and chewy. The mango was hard and lacked flavor. The salad just didn't seem to be the same as it had been in the past when I had ordered it and enjoyed it. We all agreed we wouldn't be ordering it again. The service was excellent and our waiter was nice, friendly and very attentive. No problems there.
We received a gift card from a friend and while It’s not a restaurant we would have selected on our own, but it was nice. The dining room was a bit cool and loud, but not to a point that was unemployable.
The restaurant has an extensive menu with plenty of options (gluten-free, vegetarian). The vegetable tacos were outstanding. Bread was hot and fresh, with an excellent cinnamon-infused butter. Wine was very pricey - $40 for two glasses of Chardonnay, so check menu prices rather than relying on waitstaff recommendations! Our appetizers didn’t arrive and waiter apologized profusely and comp’d our desserts, which were excellent.
Perfect for any occasion. Great service with a great view for rooftop patio dining.
Always an excellent experience. Excellent food. The ribs are the best nice ever had!
Went for the grilled artichoke. Didn't have any. We're told they were unable to get any until spring. Really? They should ask Cliffhouse where they get their's as they always have them. Got fabulous ones at our local grocery store last week. I guess Tommy B's needs a better supplier.
A gem in Palm Desert Tommy Bahamas has been our family's favorite since its opening. Unfortunately, this last time our waitress - although nice - was not very attentive as previous times.
Tommy Bahams restaurants always exhibit a creative well executed menu. This one was no exception. Special mention and kudos to a well trained waitstaff - especially Natasha who helped make our experience a memorable one.
Service was EXCELLENT! Couldn't have asked for better. I tried the veggie burger and OMG...AMAZING! SO GOOD.
Our entire family had a wonderful dinner. It was a very nice evening
Please skip the Brunch, not enough options and very bland. Would recommend that your restaurant only stick to lunch and dinner, which has always been outstanding. Brunch was extremely disappointing.
Great service - courses came at a perfect pace not all at once & each one was delish
Waitress Natasha was attentive and made our dining experience quite enjoyable
TB was able to accommodate us at 5 pm the same day during a very busy
holiday week ... we were very thankful! had scallop sliders, panko crusted
talapia, coconut shrimp and loved it all. drinks (wine) reasonably priced.
