We phoned in a reservation for 5:45 for 2. On the terrace which is the outside seating area. Since it was in the mid 70’s it was perfect. Tropicale has a large indoor seating area with large booths and some tables, a large bar with...More

We had a really good experience at the Tropicale and can't believe we had never been there. We went specifically to have dinner on the patio so this review is based on that experience. We ordered cocktails and dinner which were all great.

We came here for dinner one night and really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The patio is perfect. Make sure you arrive hungry as you won’t be disappointed with the food. The Southern Fried Chicken Salad was exactly what I needed.

Tropicale has a real party atmosphere, although we ate at the bar, which might have added to that impression. Very friendly crowd. Good food. I thought it was a bit pricey, but I shall return.

Had a wonderful time. We went early for happy hour with a toddler. Drinks were good. Happy hour specials were good. Sat outside and just felt like we were living it up in Palm Springs!
