Feels like old Hollywood with the waiters who've been there forever. Wonderful dinner and afterward the piano bar was very interesting, as we discovered it was a gay bar.

We will be driving to Palm Springs for the day on Father's Day June 2017. Because we will be touring the town and it will be extremely hot my husband and son will be wearing shorts and my daughter and I casual dresses. My question is if we book a reservation for Father's Day brunch will my husband and son be allowed to eat in your restaurant wearing shorts? Dress shorts.
