We had a wonderful dinner in this elegant dining establishment. The chef/owner is extremely engaging and one can see he takes great pride in his establishment. I had two appetizers which were both delicious—the four cheese peppers and the polpette (trio of meatballs); my husband had the stuffed pork chop which was to die for. If you’re looking for quiet elegance and great tasting food, Jillian’s is the place. We look forward to returning on our next trip to the desert.
First time at this restaurant. Very good food ,service great
Enjoyed my birthday!!!! Will definitely come back.
Simply stated, our meal was excellent start to finish. Service was impeccable and very friendly. Every item served to our party of four got rave reviews.
In a word: FABULOUS. The bartender is friendly and creates a fun, friendly bar atmosphere. There are beautiful rooms and patio dining. Service is first class without being ostentatious. The food is beautifully presented and the portions are perfect. The wine list is impressive; it offers high end pricey as well as lower end delicious and affordable wines. This is now one of our favorite places to dine in the desert. Affordable, yet luxurious. Check out Jillian's!
Food and atmosphere very good. Service was very scattered, our waiter was busy serving other big parties. I don’t think it was his fault as it looked like there wasn’t enough staff. We had to pour our own wine after the initial glass was poured. We waited over 20 minutes and had to ask to have our plates cleared. We felt we were ignored.
We have been to Jillian’s several previous times and will return but hope they can correct their service issues.
Hands down the best restaurant in the desert. Amazing
Excellent food, excellent service, definitely makes the short list of great restaurants in the area!
Always a great experience on the patio. Wait staff very experienced.
We try to dine at Jillian's at least three times a season. Never disappoints us. By far, our favorite restaurant in the Coachella Valley
Special salad with lobster was outstanding as was the shaved brussel sprout salad. Liver Veneziana was the best liver I have ever had and the "straw and hay" pasta special was very good. Ambiance was old school elegant with a piano player in the background. Good special dinner spot.
(40th wedding anniversary
Excellent service , but the food didn’t meet our expectations. We’ve eaten there numerous time and has always been exceptional.
Great location, food and service. The outdoor space is beautiful as well
Our anniversary was romantic and lovely.
The food and service both were outstanding.
I highly recommend the salmon. My husband also enjoyed the meatball trio appetizer.
From the valet through the dessert, we had a wonderful evening and dining experience. Our #1 spot in the desert.
Beautiful food in a beautiful setting
Every year we enjoy this consistent up scale restaurant. The staff are excellent in service and welcoming us back.
We have known June since she was the hostess at Cunard's in LaQuinta. She worked with Bob at all of his restaurants. I entertained business clients many times. Jillian's has always been our favorite restaurant, and we enjoy getting updates on the family although we don't go often there anymore since we are no longer working.
Our dinner on Feb. 13, 2020, was outstanding in every way. We can't recommend Jillian's enough and look forward to returning the next time we're in Palm Desert.
All meals very good except the chilean sea bass was undercooked. Ambience and service excellent.
We were extremely pleased with our evening. The restaurant came highly recommended and it was more impressive than we expected. First of all, we loved the look of the hacienda, reminiscent of days passed in California. The evening reminded us of the many dining experiences we enjoyed at the higher end restaurants in Orange County and Beverly Hills, but the atmosphere of Jillian's superseded even those nice times.
We shall enjoy other evenings at Jillian's. This was our first.
Thank you for a pleasant experience and a delicious dinner served with 5 vegetables.

This was our first visit to Jillian’s. Celebrating Valentine’s Day early. The food was delicious, maybe a little too rich. The service very good. Also, a nice background piano. We will recommend and go there again.
This was our first time dining at Jillian's. We enjoyed our experience. We sat outside in the courtyard and were blown away by the ambiance. It was very enjoyable, the service was excellent and the food was very good. Will return to this restaurant when we are back in the area.
Excellent restaurant with good ambience, attentive service and delicious food.
A very pleasant dining experience. The food was excellent, though on the expensive side. The restaurant ambience is very welcoming.
This restaurant is one of the best in the Valley. it is elegant without being pretentious. It is homey and inviting. The food was outstanding with excellent special choices for the evening. It would be a great place to come back again and again.
One of best restaurants in Palm Springs. Really enjoyed the food and service. Highly recommended. Piano player was exceptional and played great melodies.
Beautiful restaurant with delicious food. The crab tower appetizer is my wife’s favorite. We decided that Jillian’s we be our restaurant of choice for special occasions.
Great table , attentive service. Warm food delivered well. Amustplacein the desert
Always fantastic! I have been there numerous times and have never left disappointed.
Long time favorite.
Wonderful setting for business or romance.
Great environment. Great service. Great food. What more can you ask for?!
Very beautiful setting and we have dined here many times although has been several years in the past. The ambiance is stunning as always. The food, this time, for all in our party was underwhelming. Just not good nor presented well.
Fabulous ambiance, service and food.
Nice birthday dinner for my wife... they forgot to send a special desert at the end after I asked when I checked in. I would have paid for it..
Best in the desert
White fish was delicious, service excellent n maitre’ d’hotel did her best to get us a quiet table (I wear hearing aides), moving us once, which helped a little but you were busy so didn’t really work
We love Jillian’s! It is our favorite restaurant in the desert! I recently had to go Gluten Free & the chef did my favorite entree gluten free for me! He took the time to come over and make sure that i was pleased with the white fish! It was delicious!
Thank you! We can’t wait for our return trip!
