Spontaneous visit turned into nice surprises for us...like their signature deviled eggs with all entrees. Such a treat!

We walked from the Rendevous B&B, just a couple of blocks away. The filet mignon steak was tender but tasteless. The dinner salads were very good. I am sure there are much better dining options in Palm Springs.

The food is so good! Our Waiter was fantastic & helpful in guiding me through what I could eat (I'm gluten free). Both my hubby and I had more food than we could eat.

This was our fourth time in four years that we had dinner at Rick's desert Grill, and this year we were not pleased. The service was good but the grilled salmon tasted and smelled fishy. It obviously was not fresh. The fish tacos was bland....More
