It's just an odd place. The menu is a bit of a hodge podge of food styles and feels more suited for a Las Vegas than an up-and-coming foodie area like Palm Springs. Located on the patio area of the Omni Hotel - the restaurant has a large set of outdoor tables that are excellent for late spring evenings or... More

May family and I are staying at the Omni resort. On our first night at the resort, we made reservations at 2pm for a 7pm seating. We arrived at 7pm to find we were give an outside table right next to a busy sidewalk and entrance to the restaurant. That was all they had to offer, even though the tables... More

It's like deja vu all over again. Year after year, the same experience in this restaurant. Service would make all the difference but the hotel chooses to ignore the issues. Pass.

We dined here three times--2 breakfasts and one dinner. Each time the food was served by a friendly waiter and with the exception of an undercooked sea bass at dinner--which they promptly cooked a few additional minutes to good result-- the menu offers great choices and the value is good.

Afternoon lunch was very good. Great staff. My Wife had the Cobb salad with chicken. Very good portion served top notch. I had the cheeseburger & fries not your run of the mill burger. Very well put together with condiments.

We had booked to sit outside , but weather was too cold, so sat inside, which was fine. Restaurant was not overly busy, Marcos was our waiter, and I feel he did not not give us the attention or service I expected. I ordered a $39 Filet, I had to ask for a steak knife and he never came over... More

Really enjoyed the atmosphere in this restaurant and the food was AWESOME! Loved the outdoor area outside of the restaurant which was so comfortable. The visit was well worth the experience!

What an enormous disappointment! Was here with a small group a few nights ago and had disappointing food and service. A friend was staying at the hotel and asked us to join for dinner and we obliged.
