Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar - Palm Desert Ratings and Reviews
I love this TB restaurant! The view is absolutely stunning! Service is always excellent. Food and drinks are delicious! Go for a casual lunch or dinner, or a special occasion. The prices are very reasonable in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. TB will have you thinking you're in the islands! I can't wait to come back again!
This is certainly one of the liveliest and most successful restaurants in the Coachella Valley. Always a great energy level yet not overwhelming. The service was outstanding the last two times I have been here. Very professional staff which is not always the case out here in the desert.
But I continue to be underwhelmed by the food. The menu reads well. Fun, eclectic, healthy, some exotic flavors. But the pull their punches. The Asian and Caribbean inspired dishes are bland. And the ingredients always a little tired and soggy.
I'll be back for the delicious cocktails and the fun atmosphere, but I would be reluctant to ever again order more than bar food. Not worth the investment
Per our request for a "quiet" table so we could chat, we were seated in the back room - farthest from the live music. Music, perhaps piped in, was still so loud near us that we had difficulty hearing our own conversations. Food was good but b/c of the noise, have no plans to return.
We dined at Tommy Bahama for our anniversary and chose the restaurant because it had great reviews. The food was good but we did not have good service. Our server told us that she could tell another large party was going to be taking a lot of her time. An appetizer we ordered was never put in so we didn't receive it until we asked about it and it arrived with dinner.
Tommy's never disappoints. We have been coming to the desert for weekend getaways for over 25 years, and Tommy's is always one of our traditions. The seafood is always great and I love the drink menu too. The menu has a great variety and fairly priced for the eats!!
We came to celebrate Father's Day as a family, a weekend later, as the boys were away by themselves for the actual day. We made a reservation(highly recommended) and were promptly led to our table. The dinner menu also contains lunch items (which three of the four of us ordered). After seeing a picture of the filet mignon salad I had my dinner item pegged. It did not disappoint at all. We shared the dual dip and crab cakes as appetizers. Both were excellent choices. My son had the Cuban Sandwich and Daughter had the Barbeque burger and they devoured them in no time. My wife's seared ahi would have been my choice and she was nice enough to share it. It was so good that I might not have shared it were it my selection.
I will definitely return when we return to the desert!
I love Tommy Bahama's! I've been going to the Palm Desert location for a number of years and it's always fantastic. When I had a retail business in the area I would have our Christmas party there and now it's usually just 3 or 4 of us for dinner. But whether they are serving 15 people or just a two-top the food is tasty, the service is spot on and the ambiance can't be beat.
Also try to get a table on the patio and watch the sunset. Add in a Mai Tai and a coconut shrimp appetizer and you'll think you're on Maui!
At first I was reluctant to go to the restaurant, because I only know Tommy Bahama as a clothing store. I was wrong!!! The food was great. Just about the best fish and chips I have ever had. Great Pina Colada cake. The service was excellent. A very memorable evening.
My husband and I enjoyed celebrating our 34th anniversary. We are glad we did not bring anyone else with us, however, because we never could have carried on a conversation with others. It was TOO LOUD and we were happy that we could anticipate what the other was saying. Other than that, we enjoyed our food.
We come from Colorado to eat here every year for Restaurant Week. Saturday night they were NOT READY! We confirmed our reservation months in advance and were sat in the BAR with Children under the age of 4. We requested to move, but now they let you request the Patio. SO, when we setup our reservation that wasn't an option. I was notified by the rude 20 something hostess that I had messed that up and should have requested the patio. We sat in the bar and had an amazing meal, till desert. They didn't have it together in the kitchen, so that was delayed over 20 minutes. This year was the worse experience we have had in YEARS!!
If you want to sit outside on the Patio, make sure and request it. MY goodness! Lesson learned.
