About The Tropicale
A chic and sophisticated décor provides the setting for our distinctive "world cuisine", a provocative mix of zesty influences that creates a delightful dining experience in Palm Springs, California. Plush high-backed semicircular banquettes surround our dining room and offer comfortable and private seating. The cuisine has a light, exotic feel with an emphasis on Pacific Rim specialties, from Chilean Sea Bass baked in Banana Leaves or Kahlua-Barbecued Pork Chops to all sorts of tasty tapas, salads, wood-fired pizzas, and desserts. The Coral Seas Lounge, a hip mid-century style bar is lined with sexy black leather bar-stools and is reminiscent of the upbeat lounges of old Palm Springs. It wraps around the dining room and leads outside to a lush, tropical, 2000 square foot dining patio where a variety of specialty cocktails and old-school favorites are mixed - an ideal place where friends gather and martinis are sipped under the starlit desert sky.

The Tropicale Ratings and Reviews
I celebrated my 30th birthday at Tropical on Sunday the 18th of June. The atmosphere is very retro-Palm Springs and I appreciated the interesting style. The martini's at the bar were delicious and very high quality. The strawberry watermelon one tasted just like a Jolly Rancher!
The Firecracker Shrimp appetizer was phenomenal and is highly recommended! I enjoyed their Sunday Sushi option and ordered the Volcano roll. Tropicale has a very extensive menu so there is something for everyone!
I was given a little dessert with a candle at the end of the meal for my birthday. It was very thoughtful of the server/host to accommodate this. The staff were very kind and eager to assist.
I recommend Tropicale, its food and atmosphere. I would also return the next time I am in the area.
We have been to Tropicale several times-one of our favorite places to dine in PS. Typically great service and usually great food.
We were there on Fathers Day at 7:00. Service was mediocre at best and I ordered a salad for my main course. It was awful. I would have sent it back but our server didn't return to our table until after the rest of my party had finished. Then I said something to him and nothing was done to compensate for the horrible salad.
Not great for customer service!
Great ambience, romantic in the outdoor seating. Low noise level. People coming here are beautiful. Staff are very friendly from the receptionist, manager to waiters and bussers. They really take time to check on us if there's anything else we need. I don't have to call them for anything. Food are variety of every cuisine . This will be my restaurant to go to when in Palm Springs. Thank you Tropicsle staff, my hubby enjoyed our date night here.
Was visiting from Oregon and wanted to pick a spot that we could go to once we got in from our late flight to Palm Springs for my friends birthday.
We had picked a warm spell to go to Palm Springs - and when we got off the plane we were looking at 95 (from the 65 that we left in Portland).
We found the restaurant easily and were greeted warmly. We got to sit outside on their beautiful patio, with light strung and wonderful ambiance. Our waitress was endearing and very attentive. We had mojitos and shared an appetizer sampler that ended up being just enough food for the whole meal. Then we were surprised with a lovely complimentary birthday treat for my friend. It was a lovely lovely time!
This week we tried another selection from the Restaurant week menu we had the sticky rice bowl with chicken it was very good.
We have never had a bad mean here, we are weekly diners, we love Dan as our waiter when we sit at a table, Chris and Mikey take great care of us at the bar, the best bartenders in town.
We would highly recommend Tropical.
Once again a great meal. Started off at the bar with Chris great drinks. Moved to our table inside where Mikey continued to serve up great drinks.
Dan is our new favorite waiter. Great service the restaurant week menu with crab tostada, the steak filet was perfectly cooked.
Great place highly recommended.
Our weekly visit today we did the restaurant week special. The crab tostada was awesome, we never have a bad meal at Tropical.
Lynn at the front desk is wonderful always getting us our table, if we can't get a bar seat.
Chris and Mikey are wonderful bartenders always have our drinks ready and never disappoint us on service.
The Tropicale is definitely on the DO NOT MISS list if there is one!
Not only are the waitstaff fantastic, courteous and attentive the greeters/receptionist/managers/owners are all terribly attractive, sweethearts and professional.
From the moment you step in you are treated with great care and you can tell everyone loves working there by the smiles on their faces you can see and the whole light and bright feeling in the atmosphere!
The facility itself is beyond stunning!
Every dinning opportunity is a special one at The Tropicale!
