Wally’s Desert Turtle in Rancho Mirage, California, a Desert icon for over forty-four years, was established in 1978 by Mr. Wally Botello, the founder of the famed fine-dining Velvet Turtle chain. Now owned and operated by his son Michael, and granddaughter Maddy, the extensive menu serves contemporary Californian cuisine, prepared by our classically trained Chef.
The expert fine linen heavy silver service, serves to enhance the extensive wine list and the quality of the menu. In the main dining room, with interiors by famed designers Steve Chase and Randy Patton, the warm and elegant ambiance of the beveled mirrored ceilings, sparkling chandeliers, ancient Peruvian artifacts, and hand-painted murals combine for a sublime experience. The live nightly musical entertainment in the Sahara Lounge makes for a sparkling and special evening out in the Desert.
