We were disappointed that the "Happy Hour Specials" were only on the outdoor patio--it happened to be a very hot afternoon. We went inside and were disappointed with the menu & selections. Food was "Fair".

The food, atmosphere and service (Marco) were all excellent. The food is fresh and delicious. We had breakfast there and all 4 had a great meal. The orange juice was fresh squeezed. Will try dinner there.

Love this bistro for breakfast. Opens 8am for delicious breakfast. Loads of coffee, spinach portobello Benedict. Great way to begin the day. Our server, Marco was wonderful too. Very reasonably priced for value.

If you're familiar with the restaurant LuLu up the street in Palm Springs, then you're pretty much familiar with this, it's sister kitchen, in "The River" shopping center in Rancho Mirage. The day we were there, the "river" was a dry concrete ditch being cleaned,...More

Although the Happy Hour is only available in the Bar area, it is served all day and well worth it. As a twice yearly visitor from Canada Acqua was a staple as a drop in at any time of day for a bite to eat....More
