The menu is a la carte and we ordered the ceasar salad (for two), which is quite expensive (about $20) but worth it. First the salad is made at your table and as you watch the waiter prepare it, he entertains you with information about the salad. I also believe the recipe is included on your menu so it is almost a read along experience as he prepares it. Finally, the salad was delicious.
We also ordered the mashed potatoes with garlic side dish, which was very good. I was of course tempted with selecting the rich chocolate dessert (but I forgot the exact name).
We would normally order a bottle of wine with dinner but since we had wine back at the resort and didn't want to spend too much money, we ordered some beer (one negative was there were no draft beer available).
I would definitely recommend reservations. Even though we were able to make our reservations only a few days ahead, we were lucky that the restaurant was not so busy that evening.
The restaurant has several sections of dining that each have a different atmosphere from more romantic to family. Wherever you sit, the dining experience is pleasant. And check out the door - it was the largest door I have ever seen.
After eating, we walked back to our timeshare, which was the beginning of walking off some of the calories.
This restaurant had no discounts and I would still return the next time I go to Palm Springs. There are also two other locations nearby but we did not visit - yet.
Our bill for two (including special salad, deserts, beers, tax and tip) was $121.
