Excellent food and beverages, however we were well done with our appetizer by the time our drinks finally arrived. Service could have been faster and more organized but the friendliness of our server made up for it.
Fun place to go in El Paseo. Never disappointed !
We went there for lunch on the patio. The blackened fish taco are always reliable and delicious. The other lunch go to item is the captiva cocktail loaded with shrimp. The pulled pork sandwich and the Momma Bahama chicken sandwich are also yummy but you need to be extra hungry to finish them. We miss the crispy plantains with black bean salsa.
Man wife & I had a great meal for an extensive menu with excellent service- the portions sizes were very substantial.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience & can’t wait to return.
We had the most wonderful lunch today. Once again the service went above and beyond. My son was disappointed to learn that the hotdog was removed from the children’s menu. They actually sent a staff member to the grocery store, and made him one. Unbelievable right? Carlos, our server, could not have been any better. A+
My first time eating at a Tommy Bahamas. Food was excellent! We sat at the bar and our server was awesome. She really knew the wine list and helped us pick a great one. I will definitely go back.
We each swooned over a cup of the crab bisque. To.Die.For. Hubby honed in on the shrimp and grits and found it tasty enough to consume his entire bowlful. He loved it. I opted for the blackened fish tacos (3) and they were lishy, but a bit much after the bisque so would skip the soup next time as they aren’t small. It came with a side of coconut yogurt with plantains that I just didn’t care for-or maybe I was just too full! Way big noisy inside.
Excellent food and service
Relaxed atmosphere with good comfort food and friendly service.
Always fun at this restaurant. Great waiter and service. Yummy cocktails. Love the lemon drop. Had the ahi bowl and chicken bowl. Wonderful. Light and flavorful. Key lime pie for desert. All delicious and a fun ambience.
Consistently excellent casual dining . Good food and good service.
food average, disappointing, and few if any healthy options besides "salad". server probably should not be in customer driven work, surly from the first moment on.
This restaurant is great and the service is excellent. When no tables were available outside, the manager, Steve, took over and mad sure that he would find a table outside for us one way or another. He was good for his word, as everything worked out perfectly. All three in our party really enjoyed our meals.
Loved the Miso Salmon bowl with quinoa.
The other big hit were the fish tacos.
We brought out-of-town friends with us for our first visit to Tommy Bahama based on
favorable comments from neighbors. Our waiter was outstanding...very attentive and
informed about the menu details. We enjoyed the food and the location with free parking
is convenient. It was too cold for outside dining which would be preferred because the
inside seating is noisy and not ideal for catching up with old friends. The prices are a little
steep but food was good and will try the lunch menu next time in lieu of the dinner menu.
Excellent fun place to dine. Friendly excellent service, good food, and a convenient location.
Outdoor patio is lovely, and with the outdoor heaters, comfortable on a cool day.
We haven't been back here for a couple of years. Decor , service and menu are mostly the same. All of the dishes we ordered were good and the prices while on the high side weren't outrageous. My major criticism is the atmosphere, the restaurant is very bright and it feels like you are eating inside a department store rather than a restaurant. Probably better to sit outside, but it has been too cold over the last few nights. Overall, better than our last visit but searching for a reason to rush back.
In the middle of El Paseo Drive in Pam Desert this restaurant is one of our favor spots. The service is almost always good and the food ALWAYS tasty. The Mai Tai drinks are exceptional and ......dangerous. The patio area is our favor area to eat
Tommy Bahama never disappoints. Dining al fresco on the second floor is a real treat.
Great restaurant, always busy, and with wonderful food and drinks. Service always superb.
Took out-of-town guests to Tommy Bahama's two weeks in a row - both excellent nights. Great service, great food. Guests were impressed!
Lunch with a friend
Oh my gosh, the FOOOOOOOD. So freaking good. Really fresh and creative!
7:30 was earliest reservation available. When we arrived---lots of empty tables. So we could have walked and been seated much earlier. 😩
Not very happy. Roasted vegetables overly greasy and garlicky.
Too expensive for what it was. Nice sitting out and having wine but would not go back for dinner. Server lovely but inexperienced. Did not eat my dinner.
Service was mediocre at best. It was mid-winter break week, so they were busy when we arrived. I wouldn’t rush back.
Food and service were terrific as usual! It was a perfect meal for our leisure lunch.
Great outdoor dining!
A wonderful dinner, the kitchen was a little slow but it was busy. We enjoyed our visit very much.
We've consistently had a good experience at Tommy Bahama!
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.
Food was not good, lettuce in Caesar was wilted
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!
I had the fish tacos and they were excellent. The outdoor dining space is fabulous!
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.
