“The best!!”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

We liked the previous place they had in Palm Springs and found it very good with a great room, good food and attentive service. The new leon's in the Desert Princes country club, is even better. Oscar, our server and the manager. offered 5 star attentive service. Our lunch was very good and the view was stunning. the prices were very good too. So glad they found a new home.

“Great food at a reasonable price!”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Visited Leon's at the new location at the Desert Princess CC. We all ordered their filet mignon, with mashed potatoes and veggies...everyone was very pleased :)

The steaks were cooked to order, service was good and reasonably priced. Would go there again!

“Go somewhere else”
Reviewed 6 March 2008

The steak cost $43 dollars which by the way you will get a much better steak at Ruth's Chris or Morton's for a comparable price. The Sand dabs were only ok. The experience started when we made reservations for 5. We showed up early and explained to the host that we needed to downgrade to a party of 4 due to an unforeseen emergency. The host was completely put off by this which set the evening for us with a negative tone. The staff acted completely out of line. I was tempted to cancel altogether and take our business else where but we stuck it out hoping things would get better. The sad part of the story is the evening and dining experience would've been tolerable minus the staff.

I do not recommend Leon's. They unfortunately have forgotten the golden rule of business. The business should give the benefit of the doubt to the paying customer. Plus Palm Springs really has fine dining worth experiencing, however I do not include Leon's Grille on that list.

“Breakfast Disaster”
Reviewed 7 January 2008

My partner and I decided to have breakfast at a different restaurant in Palm Springs. We usually go to places like Ruby's, Pinocchio's, Shermans and Ricks. So, for a change of pace we drove over to Leon's at the Indian Canyons Country Club off south Palm Canyon in Palm Springs.

While the restaurant is attractive and overlooks the golf course, the dining experience was awful. Starting with the watered down and tasteless decaf coffee, we anticipated having a mediocre breakfast. We ordered egg omelets which arrived soaked in oil (ugh!). We sent our orders back asking that the "chef" not put any oil on top of our eggs and to use much less oil in general. The eggs came back cooked the same greasy, oily way. In addition, the homefries were cool and tasteless. We took a few tastes and set the breakfast aside. By the way, the rye toast was good.

“Hidden Joy”
Reviewed 14 July 2005

I have hosted 2 business events, and been the guest at another event, and each time the food, service, and people were terrific! Tony the Maitre D makes you feel at home and welcome, there is a real "Leon" who will sometimes create a special dish just for you, there is a quiet bar with a piano player. They will even let you bring your own wine! Its a very special desert hideaway!
