Had a sandab sandwich on a brioche roll for lunch. Really good! Can't beat the view but need to be on a the lower because you can't see course and players from the second tier as the umbrellas block the view.

We had lunch. My friend chose it to celebrate her birthday with me. loved her seafood salad , and I loved my salad with chicken and wine poached pears. We both were very happy. We asked to have the yummy looking corn breads and we were overjoyed with it, we were shocked when the waiter delivered a complimentary birthday desert... More

Enjoyed a great fish taco lunch with a wonderful view. Too cool to sit outside but Daniel was very entertaining and quick to get us anything we needed. Always a must when coming to Palm Desert, food was good. Try the onion ring tower.

The Desert Willows Golf Course Restaurant opens at 7 am. This is our go to place for breakfast when in Palm Desert; order from a menu and very reasonably priced. During the warm months, there's plenty of shade and misters. Their summer evening concert events look great too. We bring guests here for the patio dining, pleasant atmosphere, mountains and...

The concert was fabulous and the atmosphere is fabulous. Great venue. The ticket cost $50.00 for a buffet dinner and the food was very good, however, it was cold. The buffet didn't keep the food very warm. I thought the price was a bit much for what we got, but I'd go again for the music and atmosphere.

Food is plentiful and tasty! We enjoyed our lunch on the patio. We had the clubhouse sandwich w/ sweet potato fries and the steak sandwich, along with a couple glasses of wine - it all came to a little over $41. The attentive staff Martin and Daniel never made us feel rushed but everything was looked after just right!Views of... More

We stayed at nearby Embarc resort, but used the golf resort and club facilities and can only comment favourably. Courses are first class staffed by friendly knowledgeable staff. Bar and bistro terrific. Overall a very good experience. Thanks to all involved and highly recommend.

Long distance from kitchen to patio. Need to have plates red hot and use covers. Food very tasty albeit a bit cool. Drink refills slow and until we... More
