This classic restaurant is a long-standing favorite for lunch, dinner and a Sunday brunch. Although the restaurant is by no means a discount one, it does offer some unexpectedly low-priced items alongside the more deluxe entrees. The Medallions of Beef Tenderloin come from corn-fed beef and sit beneath a dollop of creamy Bearnaise sauce. If you want something lighter, enjoy one of the sandwiches. The homemade desserts are wonderful, particularly the signature Apricot Bundt Cake and the Lemon Lush, a cheese filling inside a walnut crust, topped with lemon.

Located a bit farther down the street from the main restaurant row on Palm Canyon Drive, this Italian mainstay is not to be missed. Papa Johnny is less often in the kitchen himself these days, but his son, Vince Costa continues the tradition in the cucina. The service is smooth and snappy, the prices moderate, and the drinks strong. Johnny's is a great place for dinner because they try to adhere to the principle of authenticity on their menu without the pretentiousness.
In keeping with its name, this restaurant, the pride of the Viceroy Palm Springs, sports sunny yellow interiors and contrasting white furniture, while retaining its Hollywood-style glamour. With dining options indoors and by the pool, it is frequented not only by the hotel's guests but also by tourists and locals looking for a fine dining experience. Modern Californian cuisine with a French twist is what you will be served here. A typical meal would consist of a sugary glass of Le Citron Bleu and a plate of tapas or spicy tacos. Try the highly recommended Maple Leaf Farm duck breast in foie gras. Dessert would involve a delectable Citron tart or a scrumptious Valrhona Chocolate Souffle. A traditional American breakfast and brunch is also available, and though the service is slow, it is well worth the wait, so dig in!

Fisherman's Market & Grill is the best fish market you'll find in landlocked Palm Springs. Insisting on only the freshest fish available, Fisherman's takes daily trips to dockside fish markets in order to maintain their discerning standards. The menu is populated almost exclusively by seafood, although the grill offers "land lubber" options of typical steak and chicken. The highlights here are contained on the chalkboard special, a lineup of twenty two different kinds of fish, each with a particular cooking method to ensure the quality fish shines through its complements. Consistently ranked as one of the best fish markets in the area, Fisherman's Market & Grill is perfect for those seeking an oceanic oasis in the midst of Palm Springs.
Shanghai Reds lies behind its charming sister restaurant Fisherman's Market, tempting visitors in with the aromas of fresh seafood dishes being made to order. As opposed to Fisherman's Market, Shanghai Reds focuses on well-conceived entrees that dance between American, Italian and Tex-Mex, but which keep the focus on the exceptionally fresh seafood purchased daily from dockside fishermen. There are options for vegetarians as well as those who aren't keen on seafood, but the bulk of the menu and the majority of the restaurant's focus features their exceptional shellfish and fish creations.
St. James created the "Icon Bar" in his restaurant, filling it with images collected during his own travels, but he himself is an icon of Palm Springs dining. Have a craving for a prime New York steak, flavored with ginger-Merlot butter? Or a Burmese Bouillabaisse? These and other delightfully different offerings keep diners coming back. St. James encourages adventurous diners to drop in just for an appetizer course if they wish to sample other restaurants in the same evening. He probably knows that few will tear themselves away. It is open daily from 11.30 am.
