This restaurant is probably the best for many miles in any direction, and the food is certainly OK, but it is by no means the "fine dining" that you would expect based on the prices. My wife and I had a shared appetizer, a shared salad, entrees, a very modest bottle of wine, and a shared dessert. Out bill was... More

Had a good dinner in here one night, friendly service. Nice decor on inside food not too expensive.Easily missed on the main drag through town but worth a visit if you fancy something not deep fried.

The food was delicious, the staff friendly and courteous. The Flat Iron steak was cooked to perfection. Chicken and Penne was delicious.

Having spent the day touring the nearby Mount San Jacinto and Joshua Tree National Park, we stayed in Twenty Nine Palms and came here for dinner. It was our first meal out in California and they really impressed. Very good food, great service and a reasonable price.

We arrived in town just after 9:00 PM, and followed the recommendation of the staff at our hotel to try this restaurant. Because it was a slow evening, the owner was getting ready to close early, but kept the kitchen staff until we ordered and received our food. Delicious! We had the evening's special, barbecued ribs, which fell off the... More

When you see the town, you'll notice you don't have TOO many choices for fine dining. But this was a perfect meal to end our trip. I had a delicious pasta dish, while my boyfriend had the special rack of ribs. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Ambiance was romantic!

Both the penne pasta with chicken and the sausage pasta with marinara were very good. The mushroom soup was outstanding!! Too full for desert.

Unfortunately the wait staff at any restaurant influences your over all experience and our waiter ruined our. From the moment we sat down he hovered like he wanted us to order and leave. Granted we were tourists not locals but tourism adds income to the town. It was really dark at our table and difficult to see/read the menu. It... More

Went there two nights in a row. The Hungarian mushroom soup is amazing, as was the beef stroganoff. Drinks are generous. Prices reasonable, service is excellent. I would love to come back.
