This is a very busy, very popular restaurant. Sort of a tourist trap, but what in Palm Springs isn't? The service is excellent. We arrived a little early for our reservation and in spite of the place being mobbed, after a short wait at the bar we were shown to our table at precisely the time of our reservation. Service during the meal was excellent as well...very attentive. The food was OK but nothing special. Prices were OK...not cheap, but what'd you'd expect at this kind of restaurant in Palm Springs.

Go during happy hour because glasses of wine are always priced great and menu is also interesting and extensive. Always end up talking with people sitting around us. Bartenders are professional yet have time to talk with us. Go there!

We always visit Tropicale when we are in Palm Springs. It has the best patio but make reservations ahead of time. This place is always busy

My husband and I vacation every year in Palm Spring for 10 weeks. Once we unpack are first stop is the Tropical. Great fun great food and best Happy Hour in the area. Loved the front entrance staff. Rob is great with the best customer service and promises a table at every visit. Never disappoints me with just a fun great atmosphere. We highly recommend it for all age groups.

A group of 7 of us came here as a last hurrah for our friend's bachelorette weekend. As soon as we walked in, we knew we were in great hands.
From the moment they sat us down to the moment we left, our service was outstanding.
Our server (feel terrible I've forgotten her name, but she deserves employee of the day, month, year, century) was attentive and articulate. She described some of their most popular dishes and answered questions about any other items we inquired about.
She also made sure our drink orders were placed with an appropriate amount of time for service, and the service staff had our waters full throughout. We never had to ask for anything.

I ordered the shrimp, date, romaine salad and oh my word, it was divine. Crunchy and succulent shrimp adorned this pile of dates, bacon, avocado, romaine lettuce and tomatoes. As advised by our server extraordinaire, I made it "ugly." What she meant was, chop everything up and experience all ingredients in one bite. GLORIOUS. Honestly, she just made our brunch so pleasant and fun.
