Diner Reviews
  • "The only negative about the restaurant is the noise level. There's a lovely outdoor patio, but when it's too hot to be outside, the indoors, which is attractive, has a great deal of tile and nothing to ameliorate the sounds of voices."

  • "Third time at the restaurant and was the best experience ever! Waitress/ bartender made the most delicious blood orange martini. The mussels were fantastic and this restaurant did not skimp on the amount served. Wedge salad also delicious. Friend that joined me had never been to thus restaurant and couldn't stop talking about how wonderful everything was"

  • "Food was "OK" didn't hit our expectations of French cuisine. We had a 7 o'clock reservation and it took a long time for waitress to come to the table to take our order. We didn't get appetizers until 7:30pm. The bus boys and runners were great however. Very attentive with drink refills and bringing bread, dressing and such. Waitress only came back to the table once, when food was set down in front of us. We asked a runner for a dessert menu and had to flag down the waitress to order. Creme Brulee was cold. Very dissappointing altogether."

  • "5 ladies for a poker widows night out. Great service and we had the bar menu. Everything, chicken wings, tarte flambee, mussels, calamari and beet salad were wonderful. Also have been here for lunch and dinner, all good. If you live in the desert and belong to the Wine Vault and bring your own wine there is no corkage fee. A little slice of France in the desert."

  • "Had visited the same restaurant on the previous Tues and it as wonderful Salads were great and so were the cocktails. Service outstanding Returned the following asunder and it was a disaster! The cocktail was nothing like the martini I had the previous Tuesday. Ordered a salad and mussels, salad was good, but 1.5 hrs. Later after asking for the mussels 3 times, they still never arrived. My friend ordered the steak salad and it was half the size it was on the previous visit. I am only assuming the owners were not there on Sunday evening. Possibly will give it one more try."

  • "Dine at La Brasserie frequently and always have a wonderful meal. I love the fact that they will split meals in the kitchen and make the plates look like it was a full meal and plated beautifully."

  • "We dined at La Brasserie with another couple; two of us shared the escargots, and two of us, the charcuterie platter for appetizers. The escargots were well-seasoned; the meats and cheeses, accented by fruits and honey, were a delightful and flavorful starter. Each of us ordered something different; my wienerschnitzel was tasty and perfectly cooked; the rack of lamb special was lovely. We all agreed it was a perfect evening, and all plan to return. La Brasserie has an excellent and varied menu - and Susan was a well-informed, attentive server."

  • "Brasserie has a very nice menu. Specially recommend the trout, well boned and frog legs. Enjoyed our meal and Sylvia took good care of us!"

  • "We had a nice time here sipping iced tea and noshing, but I must say that the Cobb salad I ordered was not remotely like the best one I ever ate at the Polo Lounge in LA. In comparison, this one was tiny, insipid, uninspired and strangely tasteless. With chilled ingredients, it is nigh unto impossible to bring out the flavor of everything, but this creation was particularly unappealing. The vichyssoise, on the other hand, was unctuous and delightful. It seems that the chef should stick to French cuisine and not try to please everyone."

  • "Excellent greeting and response to our request for a seating location. Excellent and robust menu selections; very good house and other wines. Server (French from Brittany) very knowledgeable, attentive, engaging. A delightful evening. Excellent value."

  • "The menu is good, but most of the food would work better in cooler and winter months. Hard to eat a hearty stew in 102 degree weather. Mussels are great."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Everything was first class from top to bottom. Food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Three of us ordered the mussels with truffle fries and two ordered the veggie crepe. Presentation was attractive and taste delicate. Servers were attentive and a great way to celebrate a special occasion."

  • "La Brasserie is a go-to favorite of ours for consistently great food, pleasant and experienced service and a lovely French Café atmosphere. For a special occasion or just an evening out alone or with friends, we always enjoy! Try the Mussels, great fries, two choices of preparation for veal...both are great, and always a nice fresh fish choice."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "The food was excellent, but sitting inside is very noisy. Hard to have a conversation. I usually sit outside which is very pleasant, but it was too hot the night I was there. Recommend the mussels and the hanger steak. "

    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "This restaurant is like a slice of Paris transplanted to the desert. Very authentic menu (e.g., frog legs, cassoulet, steak frites), nicely prepared. I had cassoulet on two visits: the first one came out of the kitchen exactly as I would have expected, very nicely done. On the second visit, it had been overcooked and the beans were a mushy paste. Still, overall the food was quite good, and reasonably priced. Excellent wine list; not long but thoughtful choices. Service was fine, nice ambiance. We'll be back."

  • "We had a lovely "girls" lunch on the patio, and it was a wonderful experiece. Great food, excellent service and atmosphere. We never felt rushed, and we had a perfect afternoon. This is also one of our favorite spots for dinner and for happy hour. We are never disappointed!"

  • "4 for dinner on Saturday night, ( 2 couples) seated promptly on the patio, as requested. Delicious Cosmo's for the ladies to start...wonderful cold soup, cassoulet , steak and liver/ onions..the trout was a bit mealy..and the plate should really include a green veggie. We will return!"

  • "I enjoyed my dinner here on April 23. It was my first time at Brasserie Bistro and I ordered the basics: French Onion soup, salmon and chocolate mousse. Everything was well-prepared and tasty. The wine list has a good selection with a few French wines and more California wines but I found good things by the glass. The chocolate mousse was dark and dense and a large portion! The outdoor dining is very pleasant with cheery blue and white table linens. The sun sets behind the building so no harsh glare. If you're looking for sort of country-French, this is your place."

  • "We chose this restaurant based on the menu and the reviews. Unfortunately, on the Saturday night that we were there two servers had not shown up for work. The hostess tried to help out but the service was extremely slow. The food was okay but not wonderful and the bill was high probably because we drank an extra glass of wine each due to the slow service. They apologized a lot but didn't offer a free glass of wine or anything in the way of compensation."

  • "Our 2 nd visit at night, dined outside on the patio. So much nicer than noisy inside. Our waitperson Susan is the best! The frisée salad was excellent, vichyssoise had too much cream, the special halibut was great, the trout almandine needed a green vegetable on the plate. A tater tatin on the dessert menu would be a great addition...Can't wait to return"

  • "Wonderful menu it all was tempting. The escargot was some of the best we've had. Seafood, steak both excellent. Profiteroles were just ok. I wish we had found this place years ago. We will most definitely be back with friends."
