15 Nov 13 we went to Leon's. It is important that readers of this review understand that Leon, the owner/lessor/whatever, not be blamed for the disappointing changes. I understand that his lease expires in a few months. For a long time, this was our favorite restaurant and we frequented it at least once a month. This time, we noticed drastic changes. The menu was new (with more expensive prices listed). This shocked us. For example, scallops was eliminated. Extremely disappointing. The entertainment on Friday night was once our favorite - Ron & Peggy. They had been replaced by a vocalist who sang well, but the volume was set too loud for a dining atmosphere. We had requested our favorite server, Liliana, and she took very good care of our needs. It was obvious that the recent changes were causing some problems with the overall staff. In the past, the manager (Tony) would visit the table and say hello. Only Lili, our server, came by occasionally. She was very busy. She did bring us a soup which was not listed as part of the entree serving. It was delicious. The breads delivered to the table with a sauce were not replenished. The sauce was virtually tasteless. We discovered that the previous chef was no longer there. Lili managed to order for one of us a plate of scallops. They were not served as in the past. The $32 cost was shocking. I ordered a char grilled piece of chicken entree. It was a small piece, though delicious I must say, but costly. $21 for a serving of that piece with some potatoes and a few veggies. We will miss being served by Lili. She did her best. We passed word to the Manager, complimenting Lili. However, we will not be returning to the Desert Princess for fine dining. We have discovered a new "favorite" in Palm Springs.

If you are visiting the Palm Springs Area this is a Must ! The food is Fabulous and so is the crew and the owner's. I have been going to Leon's for years (20) no matter what location their at. The Food is by far the best in the Desert... The service is warm friendly, just like family I rate this a 10+ and so will you once you taste their food.
