Welcome to Our Table

How do you elevate an exceptional meal? By elevating the setting in which it’s shared. That’s just what we’ve done for our friends and neighbors here at our Palm Desert steakhouse, with an extensive remodel that marries approachable sophistication with a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere.

Design details pair perfectly with showcased wines: Our thoughtfully appointed dining room blends grand design elements with hand-selected artwork grounded in the history and culture of our Coachella Valley home. Our central domed ceiling with its stunning chandelier draws you into a dining room flanked by floor-to- ceiling wine cabinets, each showcasing a collection of classic to rare vintages ready to help you celebrate your next special occasion.

All in a comfortable setting. Here in our Coachella Valley home, we take pride in making each of our guests feel welcomed. It’s the reason every seat offers spacious comfort, from a new favorite spot at our copper-clad bar to professional meetings or milestone celebrations shared in our inviting private dining areas. It’s why first time guests feel like regulars. And regular guests feel like family.

Visit Palm Desert's award-winning steakhouse. We invite you to come experience this freshly polished jewel of Palm Desert dining for yourself – winner of several awards including the Best Steak House in the Desert for nine consecutive years. While our world-class USDA Prime steaks have made us a favorite in the Valley, you’ll also find fresh seafood, scratch-made side dishes and desserts, and a menu of craft cocktails made from freshly squeezed juices and house-made syrups and sours. Reserve your table today.
