My wife and I shared three items for lunch with portions so generous that we took most of the Curried Cauliflower home for dinner. I had ordered it with fries after a vigorous hike but need not have done so! The small red quinoa salad was far from small and indeed we saw how large the full size salads are... More

We were in a rush and decided to drop into Sammy's. Very good food, and we were surprised at the low cost for such a high end Palm Desert shopping district. Definitely not considered fine dining, but an excellent place for a very good, low cost meal

My husband loves the chicken salads so we always make at least one trip/year to this restaurant. I'd say they did a better job of service this year with pleasant attention from the host at the front, our server and the Manager on duty. I tried the tiny burgers with some Gorgonzola added. Wonderful taste and texture. We had a... More

Good but not great food . Service was good. Pizza was just okay, I would say. NY Pizza was not the true NY style.

We came here due to the line at Tommy's next door and we're presently surprised. It's defiantly a better quality of food version of cpk. Good drinks from the bar, pizza crust was excellent, and the truffle fries were the show stopper.

I ordered a Cesar salad, tasted like it was days old, my son ordered a pizza which was loaded with grease, paid way too much, should have gone somewhere else, definitely not going back

Had planned on going to restaurant next door, but this place looked so inviting and friendly that we stopped in. Had a great lunch. Children had pizzas, I had sliders and my husband had a salad. Soft drinks were refilled without charge, service was fantastic and food hot and served quickly on an extremely busy day. Didn't feel rushed, but... More

We went there for a break from high end restaurants to save a little $ on one of our many dinners in the Palm Springs area. We were still hoping for some decent pizza and related fare, at least. We did not get it. We had a party of 10, and put in our order for appetizers. They never showed... More

I apologize for your poor experience, and assure you that this is being addressed with our kitchen staff. This is far from the norm for us, as we pride ourselves on top notch service from both our wait staff and kitchen. While there is no excuse, this is one of the busiest weeks of the year for us, which may... More
