    Rock Garden Cafe: Palms Springs Charm

    by Yaqui Written May 9, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a wonderful restaurant. We had breakfast and what drew me here was the beautiful patio area located just to the west of the buildings. Lots of tables with umbrellas for shade and I could tell they have misters strung all along the patio for the hot summer months. The entrance you cross a boarded walkway way and you can see the fountain with a pond. I will admit the pond was green, but the sound of the fountain made the experience enjoyable. The restaurant does need a little TLC, but the experience was still worth it. We had perfect weather around 75 degrees. The food was good, plentiful, priced right, and the waiters were friendly.

    Elmer's Pancake & Steak House: Not Just Breakfast

    by Yaqui Written May 9, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a really nice restaurant. We were seated right away. I will say the tables were a little close. Yet, the food was good and the service was prompt and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to especially those with kids because they have lots to chose from on their menu. It was wasy to find and easy to pull in and out of the parking lot.

    Thai House: Thai Food

    by awayhome Updated Apr 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For me Thai food is the best food. Maybe it's because I was born in Thailand. I was surprised to see many Thai restaurants in Palm Springs. You can find Thai food almost everywhere in America.....and now you know that you can even find it here along Palm Canyon Drive.

  • Elmer's Palm Springs: Not to be missed when in Palm Springs!

    by SuntanGuy Written Jul 6, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The locals have been enjoying this landmark for over 30 years and no trip is complete without at least one breakfast, lunch and dinner at this terrific diner with the best comfort food in southern California! They have a prime rib at dinner that rivals any expensive restaurant downtown for around $16 and includes a huge salad and freshly baked dinner rolls. Breakfast fills up on the weekends but is well worth the wait! You will see why just about everyone includes it on their get-a-way to Palm Springs! Really great folks run it and the wait staff are genuine and considerate! An extensive menu with so many choices, you will want to come back again and again to try them all!

    Favorite Dish: I think for breakfast, the crepes with strawberries are my favorite (with a side of bacon!!) Lunch would have to be the Asian Chicken Salad (enough to feed a third world country!) and dinner has to be the prime rib! It is like no other that I've had and a real treat! Cooked to perfection. The whole restaurant is an enjoyable experience!

    Sherman's: Best Deli in the Desert

    by Donrogelio Updated Mar 14, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is packed for a reason. The menu is EXTENSIVE and the service and the prices are great.

    Favorite Dish: Sherman's has salads, and an extensive breakfast and lunch menu; but who can go to a deli and resist the pastrami or corned beef on rye? If you are into desserts, this is the sweet spot for you.

  • Zin American Bistro: Why isn't Zin Listed

    by Californiafoodie Written Jun 22, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    American food with a French Accent, casual, bistro feeling. The food was amazing and the wine list leaves you wanting to go back. Great seafood and specials.

    Favorite Dish: Had a Hanger steak that was out of this world! Tender flavorful and a tasty sauce. Wife had rabbit and fries. No words to describe it. You must try this restaurant.

    Elmer's: Great Food, Neat Decor

    by Basaic Written Dec 14, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place looked pretty nice outside and had nice furnishings and photos of past visitors to town (see Albert Einstein and former President Ronald Reagan in the photos). I had Penne Pasta with Shrimp and Crab in an Alfredo Sauce which was quite good and some good clam chowder as the appetizer. Recommended! $19 as of October 2012.

    Favorite Dish: Loved the Penne Pasta with Shrimp and Crab in an Alfredo Sauce and the clam chowder!

    Ruby's Diner: Step into the 50's

    by HELEN Written Feb 19, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Once you step inside this place, you'll feel like you traveled back in time. The decor is very diner like with vinyl red booths, old school regirsters and jukeboxes. I just wanted to order a burger with fries and a shake. They actually have a very extensive menu from breakfast to lunch to dinner, and everything looks delicious. I was so torn between ordering breakfast or lunch, I wanted both. They have a cute patio area with umbrellas to block the sun. It's a great place to have a meal and watch the action along Palm Canyon Drive.

    Favorite Dish: The burgers and salads were delicious

    Le Vallauris Restaurant: Finest Restaurant in Palm Springs

    by Donrogelio Updated Mar 14, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This will be your cheapest trip to France; but your most expensive lunch or dinner in Palm Springs. This is a historic restaurant near the downtown area. It serves the best dishes and wines in a historic Palm Springs home.

    I suggest dining here for a special occasion, such as an anniversary. You will dine where movie stars and heads of state have dined before you. While lunch is less expensive, I suggest dining in the patio in the evening. Be forewarned, this place is expensive; but memorable.

    Favorite Dish: The white fish; nothing will disapoint.

    Pomme Frite: Loved the Coq au Vin

    by Donrogelio Updated Mar 8, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pomme Frite is a terrific bistro in downtown Palm Springs with excellent food and no attitude.

    Favorite Dish: I loved the Coq au vin. It was half a chicken (a little much) awash in a great sauce filled with mushrooms and pearl onions. Get ready to eat a baguette with the sauce. Don't be afraid to ask for a container.

    My wife had the steak special and she loved it and the pomme frites that came with three sauces for dipping (mayo, aioli, and catsup, sacre bleu!!).

    For an appetizer, we had escargot.....great garlic parsley butter sauce.

    Noodle Bar: Great asian restaurant in Resort and SPA casino

    by Sienlu Written Dec 29, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a small affordable Chinese restaurant in the Resort and Spa Casino in Palm Springs. Perfect place to satisfy a quick hunger while gambling.

    The service is really fast and the food is great, especially for the price.

    You can find it almost right when you enter the casino.

    Waitresses are very friendly and funny too!

    Definitely try this restaurant if you are in the Resort and Spa Casino.

    Oasis Buffet: Amazing Buffet at Morongo Casino

    by Sienlu Written Dec 29, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every time I go to the Morongo casino in Cabazon, close to Palm Springs (which is not that very often :-)) I stop at the Oasis Buffet before starting anything else. It has every food you can imagine, Italian, Asian, American, Salads, Desserts, it's unbelievable and it's delicious. The atmosphere is great! It is one of my favorite buffets, even comparing to the ones in Vegas. (maybe not the Rio's buffet but definitely all the other ones)

    At lunch time it's less than $15 and you can get discounts if you have a player card from the casino.

    When you enter the casino from the parking elevators, keep walking left until you find it!

    Enjoy, you will not regret it!

    Falls Prime Steakhouse: A great Steakhouse

    by HELEN Written Feb 16, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located on the second floor and overlooks the action along Palm Canyon Drive. There are a few table located on private balconies, which can be very romantic. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but unfortunately we were not completely satisfied with the service. The food was delicious! The menu offers steaks and chops prepared your way with a selection of sides including 6 cheese mac 'n cheese and garlic sauteed mushrooms. The wine list is pretty extensive with a good price range. There's also a long list of Martinis, that come with dry ice for a cool presentation.

    Favorite Dish: The lobster salad was delicious and perfect size to split for two. The fillet was cooked to order, and the sauteed mushrooms were my favorite side dish.

    Bit Of Country: A little bit of country

    by HELEN Written Feb 18, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in the mood for a little bit of country for breakfast, Bit of Country is your place. It's a local's joint that is packed every morning. The menu is pretty basic with a little bit of a southern twist. Every item on the menu give you a choice of biscuits and gravy and grits, if regular hash browns and toast is just too basic for you.
    The staff is very friendly, the portions are pretty big, and the prices are low. They also offer lunch, but we only tried breakfast.

    Thai Taste: New Thai Restaurant - A cut Above the Rest!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This little hole in the wall makes some of the best Thai food that I have eaten outside of Thailand. Nothing fancy but great food.

    Favorite Dish: Ate there twice on last visit to the area. My favorite was the seafood curry with a lime sauce.
