Rich in history, Shame on the Moon Restaurant starts its exciting 37th season in the desert paradise of the lovely Coachella Valley.
Opening in 1984, our early roots were in Cathedral City and after 11 seasons we moved to Rancho Mirage on Frank Sinatra Drive in 1995. Times change and history marches on and we are proud to say that our home, Shame on the Moon, nestled behind lush greenery withstands the test of time as strong as ever.
From its inception, Shame on the Moon set itself apart with flair as a classic restaurant and fine dining experience. The original owners Milan and Tom carried its legacy for years creating the scene locals and travelers from far and wide have come to love. Milan ultimately became the sole owner for a total of an amazing 36 years. Ginger started out as server and ultimately become the gold standard and beloved hostess for 25 years. We now step into a new consistently great era filled with excitement for the future.
We are newly blessed and proud to announce that we have Maitre d’ extraordinaire, Brian Ellis, manning the front of the house bringing his 45 years in the celebrity restaurant trade to our front door. You might recognize him from his almost 5 decades in an historic Palm Springs iconic restaurant. He brings both restaurant knowledge and unparalleled desert history with him and the relationships he has fostered with his longtime guests is what matters most. After 45 years he still loves what he does and waits to greet you at Shame on the Moon. Bartender Michael, with a long history behind the bar in our desert also worked with Brian for more than 10 years and will be serving up an ice-cold martini, cocktails and fabulous wines for the restaurant. The lovely Ana continues to support our front of the house and welcomes you with a big smile. Our talented executive Chef Carlos continues to prepare his classics, your favorites, for more than 30 years now at Shame on the Moon. Tom continues to manage daily operations and graciously make your reservation requests. Our team of knowledgeable waiters have set themselves apart offering great classic service. We are proud of our staff, both the loyal and longtime team members and a few new faces.
We are grateful for our wonderful guests and their years of support. As we move forward, you can rest assured that your dining experience as Shame on the Moon will be what you have come to know and love with some carefully curated additions. Please stop by and experience our classic vibe and historic legacy. We look forward to serving and celebrating with you soon.
