Birthday but no one asked about it
Aside from being greeted by a bearded host who refused to wear a mask (it was hanging from his ear) it was a good experience. But this almost made us turn around at the door. Bartenders were also preparing drinks maskless. Makes one wonder about what's going on in the kitchen too. Spacing between tables was way too close. On top of one another. It's my opinion, restaurants not following these rules, during this period (brand new all time high in US cases today! 80K) should be immediately closed. While it would be a shame, so would a dinner becoming a super spreading event, leading to multiple illnesses and death.
Having said that. Our waitress was lovely, attentive, and always near. Her recommendation of the Blood Orange Martini was a terrific. The fried calamari is pretty close to perfect. Fresh, crispy, but just a light batter.
Fried Chicken entree ($28) is as good as it gets in a restaurant like this, out here in Palm Springs. The Pork Chop ($42) was moist and not dried out. Served with a nice salad.
Fix the mask issues and this place is a winner.
COVID has made most restaurants increase prices. Tropicale is no exception.
This place knocks it out of the park every time!!!
One of our favorite places to dine while in Palm Springs.
The drinks are plenty and the food is great. Try the PuPu Platter.
One of the most popular restaurants in Palm Springs, Tropicale continues to draw those who are interested in excellent food, an attractive atmosphere, and very professional servers. There are many great places to dine in Palm Springs, and Tropicale is certainly one of them. Indeed, they are among the "very best" in town. We love it and get there as often as we can!
Excellent food and ambience as always. Fernando, Camden and the rest of the team do an amazing job in providing excellent service!
Great service and great food!!
Patio seating tables were way too close to each other & considering the patio is not very open with high walls & roof. Guests were out of their seats without masks on. Did not feel very safe. Drinks watery. Sushi was good. Probably would not return any time soon.
We had the crab/avocado salad, which was great for lunch. Service was friendly but slow. A little disturbing to have the tables as crowded almost as close as they were prior to the Pandemic, and no other apparent hygienic measures apart from the servers wearing masks.
No social distancing and the place was packed.
Very disappointed and we complained to the manager who could care less.
We will never go back.
Service and Food were perfect. BUT there was no adherence to COVID regulations. Social distancing was nonexistent, the indoor seating was supposed to be at 25%, the restaurant was packed. The waiting area was packed with people as well waiting for tables. HOW DO THEY MANAGE TO GET AWAY WITH THIS!!! It was to be a special occasion, our 10th anniversary, they made no mention no acknowledgement. Disappointed.
Everything was great, but felt like we were being rushed in & out!
We moved inside to a table Caesar was managing. First time out since breaking my ankle. Table was spaced which was calming. Room for my boot...love you. Rita and Michael
The ambience was amazing on the patio. We started out with the poo poo platter and the sangria that the bartender recommended, absolutely delicious. We will be back!!
Recent pandemic era dining allowed for indoor seating and it was great to see the restaurant alive and well with a slightly reduced-but-still-dynamic energy that made the evening with friends feel like pre-covid entertainment. Food was great as usual. Service actually felt improved and the cocktails are still fantastic. We even partook in an after dinner drink at one of the few barside tables. This place is still a solid favorite in Palm Springs.
Food was fabulous. Service was perfect! Love Tropicale!!!!
We mistakenly got our reservation time wrong and called; the staff were able to work something out and keep our perfect table outside, by the fountain, and we truly had such a great experience. Ambience was lovely. Lighting was wonderful. Music was so fun. Our server was knowledgable and energetic and enthusiastic, but knew when to leave the table. Our water glasses were always filled. Deserts were pricey, but every flavor we experienced was worth it. Scallops and duck were done in excellent fashion. Thank you!!!
Good vibe, and great food! Isn't that the reason you go out to eat?! We will be back.
Our only complaint is that the patio was PACKED and not adhering to the 6 foot rule at all. We asked to be seated inside.
Frequent diner there- always dependable, great to bring out of town guests- patio is lovely in season 🌵
We have come here for years!
Make a reservation! Love the Terrace
The food and drinks are fabulous, as is the staff. Best place inpalm springs! Go!
Great service, large portions, strong drinks. What's more to like?!
Tables are not six feet apart or even close to meeting Covid guidelines. Packed in like sardines through out.
Raymond was exceptional! We ate on the patio And the food was delicious! The tables were distanced appropriately. But the inside dining was a little uncomfortable for us.
We were a party of seven and this was the first time we've been there. We had a lovely time. While the place is big, it is laid out so it feels cozy, but not crowded. The food was great, as was the service. We'll definately go back,
Amazing food and service and the atmosphere was beyond sexy. Will be back!
The Tropicale is by far the best restaurant for outside patio dining. Plus the food is very good and delicious. I recommend Tropicale for anyone who wants a great night out. Also, their Saturday and Sunday brunches a wonderful as well. The staff always provides excellent service and are extremely friendly. Tropicale is one of my favorite restaurants. The food, service and value keep me coming back. I recommend Tropicale very highly, you won't be disappointed.
If you're looking for a fun place to go, this won't disappoint. If you're looking for the best food, maybe not, but it doesn't matter that much since the overall experience is fine. It was a birthday lunch, so the chocolate cake they brought was incredible, which was great since I couldn't eat my lunch lol. Our server, Sterling, did the best she could under the circumstances. Next time I go, I'm sticking to something simple like a hamburger. Go and have fun! Don't miss it if you're in Palm Springs.
Really good service, and great food.
It was a great place to see and be seen around people celebrating for many occasions from bridal dinners to intimate dinners
Granted it’s COVID time, but we sat in the parking lot area. Service was spotty. The tables were WAY TOO CLOSE to each other. I’d had brunch there 2 weeks before, it was fantastic (food, drinks, great misters on the patio). Dinner, was not as good. I’m looking forward to trying again due to the good brunch experience.
This is by far our favorite restaurant to come to when we are in town! The food, drinks, and service is outstanding! :)
Apparently they never heard of Covid at the Tropicale. We sat outside on their patio and the tables were packed in like sardines. There was even a table next to us with folding chairs, so I got the impression it was squeezed in to seat more people. It was surprising how strict California is, and how lax this restaurant was. No distancing. Even when you walked in, the owner/host had his mask on under his chin. Walking past the kitchen on exiting, you can see no one in the kitchen had a mask.
Food is average. Cocktails are excellent. But they should do more to make their patrons feel more at ease during a pandemic. If I would have known how packed in the seating would be, I would have never went. I’m going to stay away until the pandemic is over.
We had the best server! He made some recommend we loved them all!
One of my favorite restaurants in Palm Springs. Brisket Burger on brioche bun with onion rings was delicious. Service is excellent.
11:30am Saturday brunch on the patio, which was shaded and quiet. Though there were other diners, our table was properly distanced from any others. Staff remained masked throughout. The food, as always, was great. The owner, who sat us, was cordial and friendly. This place is a favorite, for lots of good reasons.
Good was great! Nice patio outdoors. Good social distancing.
Love this place! Absolutely a must-do in Palm Sptings
Once again we had an excellent dinner at Tropicale. Our server Albina is awesome, she had our drinks ready when we sat down. It was nice to prompt service from Nancy as part of the wait staff bring bread to our table and making sure we had our water glasses filled at all times.
We had the Chili-Rubbed California Swordsh Tacos Guacamole - Mango Jalapeño Salsa - Corn Tortillas - Fresh Lime and the Red Miso & Sake-glazed Jumbo Diver Scallops, Japanese-Style Sesame Udon Noodles with Green Cabbage, Oyster Mushrooms, Edamame & Scallions.
Everything was cooked to perfection as ususal. We are weekly diners and would highly recommend Topicale for brunch, dinner and Sushi Sunday.
Superb food! Don't miss the white sangria and appetizer shrimp!
