Dined here with another couple before heading over to another casino to see Frankie Vali. While the service was good, the quality of food was not. Our salads were very small with little variety in them. I had the chicken alfredo which was overcooked.. pasty. Two others order the steak for two and both were overcooked and bland. Even the rolls came out on the cool side and were tasteless. The good thing I guess is that the meal did not cost much. Will not be returning.

restaurantoffers a special promotion for two people, a threer course meal for two diners ina highly upscale restaurant, the meal for two includes, first course, salad,(caesar salad, or house salad, soup, we chose onion soup,entree, we chose 8 oz. ribeye steak, w/ baked potato, alternate entree, chicken alfredo fettuicini, or stuffed chicken, breast, or, cajun style wild salmon, with dessert selection, carrot cake, or creme brulee, or 3 flavors of ice cream. and all this at $29.00 for two people, a bargain in this delightful setting. my steak was delicious,
and the elegance of this casino restaurant in the coachella valley made a big hit with us.
and to see the total with no tax added,as located in an Indian Casino was a surprise. the restaurant located inches from a full casino with little if any smoke, added to our enjoyment.note:
:this special is subject to change, as the season progresses, so suggest you call for availability, and reservations and enjoy our very competant server, Daniel, who made the evening a super deal.
this menu is a hidden treat for a lovely night out.
enjoy!.richo

We visited the restaurant for the first time since Rattlesnake moved. On the night we were there a wine tasting was scheduled. The receptionist did not let us know that it was scheduled. We were seated along with two other groups, in the rear of the restaurant. Shortly after we began our dinner, the wine tasting patrons were seated. In that there was nothing for them to eat or drink at their places, they chose instead to talk amongst themselves. It felt like we were in a McDonalds at feeding time. Then the sponsor of the event stood in the center of the restaurant and proceeded to go through his routine, oblivious to the fact that there were others in the restaurant that had no interest in what he was talking about. We came for a quiet dinner. It didn't happen. Jem is only open four days each week. Wouldn't it make sense to schedule special events like wine tastings on the other three days? The food, by the way was descent.

Casinos aren't normal locations for a destination restaurant,but this may be different.Located in the Spotlight 29 casino off of I-10,this fairly new dinner spot was a great choice the night we were there.Our party all had the seafood special that night.Halibut in a lobster sauce.Very tasty.Entree prices are in the $25-$40 range.On the high end,but on this evening it was worth it.They have a extensive wine list in all price ranges,with some values to be had.
