Met some new friends who had just purchased a house in Rancho Mirage at Shame on the Moon. They had been there before a thought it was a great place. Everything was flawless from our charming hostess to our capable waiter to our efficient table bussers. The food was delicious. We all had the starter salad -- mine was bleu... More

Again we had an opportunity to show some visiting friends why this restaurant is our favorite in the Coachella Valley. Great service, terrific ambience, and fantastic food. My vegetarian ( pescatarian, actually) friend had the shrimps and scallops, with peanut butter pie for dessert. He was very impressed by both. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her salmon. I had my favorite... More

This was the third time we've been to this restaurant. The food is excellent, the service also outstanding, and the ambience good. The liver and onions dish is first rate, and the rack of lamb superb. Everyone at the table was very pleased, and the prices are reasonable. Make a reservation because all the locals Know this place next it's... More

Ginger is a national treasure. She greeted at the door as usual and immediately took us to our seat...30 minutes earlier than our reservation. She is an amazing spirit and an asset to this establishment FOR SURE! It took longer than usual to get our drinks ordered and our drinks were delivered before our menu's which is not the norm...

We attended a birthday party two nights ago at one of our favorite Rancho Mirage restaurants, Shame on the Moon. Special placemats were made in the name of the "birthday boy" (age 75!) and the food and service were excellent. This is a restaurant where the customer comes first and we have found the servers to be attentive and helpful.... More

Four of us went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The good was outstanding. My grandson had shrimp and scallops; my daughter had the roasted duck; my husband had liver and onions (they are known for this) and I had a Caesar salad with chicken. The meals were elegantly presented. At the meals conclusion, I received a delightful ice... More

Even though the restaurant was packed, we were shown to our table right away at the time of our reservation. The food and service was excellent. They have extra wait staff that roam the tables taking away plates, filling water glasses, and delivering bread. This certainly takes pressure off the main waiters who can then focus on taking and delivering... More

An elegant dinning room with a staff that makes you feel right at home from the moment you enter the doors. Food is consistently good, drinks are generous. Best of all you can have a conversation without having to yell. Ample parking Handicapped accessable
