A delightful French Bistro.A delightful French Bistro. Food, service and atmosphere was more than expected. I will become a regular patron.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Authentic French Food!Love the menu - authentic french dishes, outdoor patio is enclosed so you don't get the street noise, has a fountain and is very pleasant. some nights they have live music which is wonderful. The service is outstanding. so glad they are staying open all summer.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Gem of La QuintaAlways a delight to dine at La Brasserie Bistro. Food is excellent and portions are very generous. Service staff provide good and knowledgable service.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest MenuLa Brasserie has the best menu we have seen in the Desert. Great floor manager also, very good service. Food was excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother!s DayStarting with the chilled Tomato soup which was a perfect temperature for such a hot day the meal was delicious. I had the fish special which consisted of Hallibut in a tasty broth accompanied by mussels and lobster ravioli. Bliss! The only complaint I had was that I had to ask for a spoon because the broth was too delicious to waste! I splurged on the chocolate mousse (after all, it was Mother's Day) and was not disappointed. Creamy and smooth and a great way to end such a delightful meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as usual!Enjoyed yet another great evening at La Brasserie last night. All four entrees were excellent as were the two shared salads. Very professional service. Always enjoyable!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFor your "must-do" listWe make the Brasserie a "must-do" every time we are in the Palm Desert area. The staff and the food are exceptionally good. Haven't found anything that equals or surpasses it!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHospitality!It was our first time on the attractive patio, on a perfect evening, just warm enough, with a full moon out. Very busy and service was attentive but slow, nicely apologized for by complimentary glasses of the Layer Cake Shiraz we were drinking. Always love the hangar steak and frites! At one point we got a bit miffed when the music level went up and mentioned it to a staff person - turned out it was a special piece for someone celebrating a birthday and didn't last long. (And we were very much enjoying it otherwise.) But after her set, Yves Evans stopped by our table and apologized, which gave US a chance to apologize and then we had a cheerful conversation. Bottom line: very professional people here, taking the extra steps be welcoming.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than the majority ofBetter than the majority of the restaurants in La Quinta. Loved the cheese and meat boards, but we felt more thought should be put into the flavor profile of the other items we ordered. An example would be the beet salad. Too many earthy elements and not enough acid in the dish. Back off on the truffle oil and add an acidic element and the ph would have been perfect. Also had the osso buco and the sauce was both heavy handed and one dimentional, making the dish a bit boring. Less sauce and a few more root vegetables would have been great. The risotto it came with was very good. The pear tart we finished with was very good, although the ice cream was too heavily salted. I'm a fan of sweet and savory, but that was a little too much.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again Brasserie BistroOnce again Brasserie Bistro offered us an enjoyable evening of French cuisine. The live music added to the ambience, but it is truly the food that brings us back time and time again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance outdoors, veryGreat ambiance outdoors, very good food, and we particularly enjoyed the live music on the patio!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely returnWe really enjoyed our evening. Our server, Eric, was very charming and the food delicious! I ordered the Grilled Hangar Steak Bordelaise: it was cooked to perfection! I swapped the fries for spinach (just so I wouldn't feel too guilty) yum! Didn't care for the bone marrow... My husband had the Ceasar Salad and Honey Brine Pork Chop. Again, excellent! We rarely order dessert but went for the Profiterole Au Chocolat - oh so good! Next time we hope to be seated on the patio; looks very inviting. Overall a great experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe bothe had the trout...itWe bothe had the trout...it was too die for. The pear tart with caramel was delicious as we're the profiteroles. A reasonably priced gem for a lovely evening of dining.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife commented that herMy wife commented that her meal was better than a comparable meal she had in Paris. She is a foodie, enough said. As a semi-vegetarian, I eat a lot of fish, the trout almondine was very much worth every bite.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around terrific restaurantLovely restaurant, great menu with unique specials. Terrific service offered here.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat on the patio and theWe sat on the patio and the ambience was great. Service and food was excellent. I had the flat iron steak and it was cooked to perfection. The other meals at our table were the frogs legs--she thought it was a lot of work to get at them and thought it was an unusual way to serve them- on top of noodles. The beef bourgnion was okay,but don't think it would be ordered again. The desserts were excellent--pear tarte- outstanding. I would definitely return3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the restaurant.We really enjoyed the restaurant. My only problem was the special was veal osso buco and it was not that good. Everyone else in our party were happy with their food.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed lunch on the outsideEnjoyed lunch on the outside patio. Our server was very accomodaating and never tried to rush two friends having a very leisurely lunch. My friend had the quiche which she said was delicious. I had the Tarte Flambee which was okay, nothing special. I have had really excellent food here on other occasions. The onion soup and the croque monsieur are always satisfying. Dinner choices are varied including many regional French offerings.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant Surprise:-)Lovely outdoor patio, jazz singer, trickling fountain.....

The food was tremendous, we both had the onion soup which is rich and very filling. I had the steak salad which was superb and perfect lunch meal. My wife had the quiche Lorraine and salad which she enjoyed very much. It was just like we had stepped from streets of La Quinta into a bistro on the streets of Paris. We will return for dinner and the happy hour also looks promising. Thank you.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in LaQuintaI have dined at the Brasserie twice this month, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times the service and food have been delightful. The outside terrace while not scenic is very cozy and inviting. The menu has great offerings. My friends had the salmon and were very pleased with the presentation and preparation of the fish. I had the soup of the day and Caesar salad. The potato-leek soup and salad were delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. What a great find in LaQuinta!2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Spot for LunchOur lunch at La Brasserie was wonderful. Excellent food, attentive service, and cozy outdoor dining area.11/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
