Cafe Mirage Rancho Mirage, CA
This is a local watering hole, known more for its bar than the food. The latter, however, is quite good. The owner is Portugese, and the small wine list features several wines from Portugal, all of them inexpensive, but decent quaffing wines. The ... more
Shame On the Moon Restaurant Rancho Mirage, CA
This is a terrific restaurant. California cuisine all the way and well-executed. The thing that sets this restaurant apart for me is the service. Fun waiters who really know how to MANAGE the service. Timing perfect. Food not allowed to sit unde ... more
Captain Cook's Sea Grill Palm Desert, CA
The food in this restaurant is very good, but the prices are outrageous. A piece of fish with a couple of boiled potatoes and some steamed veggies is $25 a la carte. A crab Louie is $19. The wine markup is horrendous. A bottle of Kendall-Jackson ... more

Thai Cuisine of Los Altos Los Altos, CA
Food is excellent, but the menu is not as extensive as other Thai restaurants I have tried. Service is pleasant. Have been there several times and never crowded. Unless business picks up, they might not sttay in business. Decor derives from previo ... more
The Posh Bagel Los Altos, CA
For my taste, this place makes bagels that are the equal of the best anywhere in the world. (I have extensive experience in New York, Boston, L.A. and Chicago and know from whereof I speak.) Also one of the few places in the area where you can get ... more
