Diner Reviews
  • "We come just for their mussels and we are not alone. They are outstanding!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We were looking for a place to have lunch with friends when we saw the La Brasserie. The service was great the food awesome. We came back for dinner a week later with other friends and had again great food and really good and fun service."

  • "Reminiscent of our times in suburbs of Paris... Wonderful outdoor ambience; in fact, we've only eaten outside here. Last we visited it was 95 but perimeter misting made it almost cool - delightful respite. Classic French cooking with lovely day-long reduction sauces. Ask for Sylvie as your server."

  • "La Brasserie is your typical french bistro. It has a low-key causal inside space and a great dinning patio. The food is varied and is very good. When it is busy the inside, unfortunately, can be very noisy, but the patio is much better and, weather permitting, is an extremely pleasant place to dine. Always check the specials, they are usually excellent and fairly priced."

  • "Great food and varied menu. For being so convenient at hwy 111 and Washington, the patio is a beautiful and quiet escape!"

  • "Food very good. Service, after we requested patio and were told we should have indicated this on the open table comment section, was as if we were being punished. No candle on table like everyone else, Joe the server was not attentive, water was late delivered, we had to ask the busboy for more wine. When the maitre'd who was seating another table was asked for our check as we where tired of waiting for our server she did not even talk to Joe our server. Joe finally came to our table to ask if we wished dessert at which time we advised we had requested the check already. Overall our treatment far outweighed the food quality. Too bad, we would have liked to return."

  • "I had the best tomato bisque soup I have ever had. It was so yummy I was tempted to order another cup, but then I wouldn't have been able to eat the special quiche of the day. Shrimp and spinach in a quiche? The best flavors, creamy inside with lots of flavor and the crust very flaky. The salad that came with the quiche had a typical french mustard vinaigrette but it was not typical at all. It was so fabulous I could have drank it. Great restaurant"

  • "We loved this place where we just celebrated our anniversary. The food was delicious. I enjoyed the escargots and veal loin as well as chocolate lava cake for dessert. My husband loved the French onion soup & mussels. The French fries were wonderful!"

  • "We love the friendly servers and the willingness to To please!"

  • "This restaurant has an outstanding outdoor patio. La Quinta in the Spring is the ideal location to dine outdoors in a serene patio setting. I have eaten at the restaurant for lunch and for dinner. The food is consistently good, as well as the service. The added bonus of a fashion show during lunch on Monday was a treat."

  • "Food and service was GREAT!! We prefer the patio as the inside seems a little loud. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We booked at the last minute and had a great table on the patio. Charming place with very good food."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Will try again. We sat inside and the waiter was in charge if the entire room and it was obviously too much on HIS plate."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "A very sophisticated yet casual bistro right out of Paris. Very delicious food. We went for lunch and both order the Cobb salad. It was the perfect serving size for "ladies who lunch". Good attentive servers; our particular gal gave us all the time we needed to catch up. On another occasion my husband and I stopped for a glass of port after dinner out a another restaurant. Nice healthy pour and very attentive bartender. We love this place!"

  • "The food is always good. The service is always good. Never had a bad meal and we eat there a lot."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Five of us went to lunch. We all enjoyed our food, it was delightful, and our waitress was excellent and very helpful. The only downside of our luncheon was that some woman was modeling for a local clothing store and kept coming around and interrupting our conversation. It was sort of annoying."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Love this place. On vacation in the area and we have been there three times. Good food, good location. One of our very favorites!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Three of us gals took our friend to lunch to celebrate her birthday...we had the perfect spot out on the patio and our waiter was very accommodating...we were in no hurry, so he was quite patient with us. We all enjoyed our food and two of us tried escargot for the first time (probably last, too--but it was on my "bucket list"). I was glad it was on your menu. The waiter kindly took our picture to record the celebration and brought our birthday girl a complimentary dessert with 4 spoons, plus a candle. We will return...the birthday girl wants to come again when the fashion show is on. Thanks for a perfect lunch."

  • "So good we ate here twice during our stay for BNP Paribas Open! Excellent food and service."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Something for everyone with a french flair. Love the mussels, steak frite, idaho trout, charcuterie plate..."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We stop by this restaurant 2 or 3 times during the week when we visit her every March. The outdoor patio is so appealing - peaceful and nice. The seafood salad, with seared scallops and shrimp, is absolutely amazing, and I have it every time we visit!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Excellent service, great food, and a comfortable patio."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Six of us ate outside. Service was good and food was excellent. One of our favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "I took some friends from the Bay Area to Mitch's and they loved the atmosphere. The expansive lawn with flowers is a beautiful setting and it's even more beautiful at night with lights on. There's a lovely view of the mountains in the background. Our waiter was fantastic, just couldn't have been better. My cobb salad was okay, not fantastic. The bread is good. They need white napkins because so many wear white in the desert. Overall our dining experience was a lovely one."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "Service was good, but since the place was crowded service was a bit slow. All parts of the meal were very pleasant, uniquely composed and delicious. Portions were much larger than one would expect from a French bistro."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Noise level indoors was unacceptable if dining with friends. Would only recommend outside seating and you must request it or they will not seat you there. The table practically adjoining us exceeded acceptable noise levels. Will think twice before returning. Too bad because the food was very good."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food is amazing. Everything is perfect. The only thing that was missing was the music on the patio. It just added that extra something to a great restaurant!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "True bistro atmosphere, menu, and decor. We were three, and pronounced ourselves well satisfied with the trout, bourguignon, and pork chop. Generous portion sizes. Very good service from our waitress, but the water, bread and bus guys were a bit sketchy. Main courses were generally in the $28 to $33 range. Waitress was very wine-knowledgeable, and, after the meal, comped us to tasting glasses of one of her favourites. I would certainly recommend, to foodies and normal people alike!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "While on a weekend getaway for Valentine's Day, my boyfriend was recommended this restaurant by a fellow resort goer. They were very friendly, helpful and paid attention to detail. Both of our meals were terrific (his: porkchop with a Cochella Valley date compote and chipotle mashed potatoes mine: beef bourguignon which they brought with a side of pasta) we also ordered a bottle of sparkling wine which was crisp and fruity and was easy to drink. We would definitely come back."

  • "Excellent French cuisine. Excellent & friendly service."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Very good food, service and ambience. Can't wait to go back again! We were celebrating a birthday and had advised this in advance. Not only did they provide a special dessert but they made the birthday girl feel special all evening long. Sylvie and Susan are wonderful servers who relate beautifully to their clientele."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "There is something for everyone on the menu. The escargot, fabulous. There are vegetarian options, steak tartare, duck. I could go on and on. Our server, Josie, was a delight."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "we have in the month of february gone to three highly recommend restaurants in the area. Cuistot, The Lavender and La Brasserie. we were extremely disappointed in the first two. La Brasserie wins hands down in all categories!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Food is standard, but good, French bistro fare. Wines are only French. This was our second time eating there and we enjoyed the food and the patio dining. Our only complaint is that the professional staff, from hostess to server to busboy, were all very arrogant and condescending. Too much like being in Paris and not enough like being in Palm Springs."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I've dined her several times both for lunch & dinner. Everything I've ordered has been very good bistro food. Can't miss. They do wonderful salads, French onion soup, lamb shanks, everything! I love the patio in the evening. The lighting is flattering and the ambiance is comfortably romantic. There is nothing pretentious. It' simple and elegant."

  • "Took my wife here for Valentines Day. We both loved it. Great atmosphere. Attentive and informative staff. Food was out of this world. Who knew about French food???"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant, have been there before, but never again on special day's when they would be busy.. Under staffed, The service was slow, Food very good, Ask for the Patio...nice setting with the lights, etc....First of all it was Valentines Day, and they were very busy.. . I feel they were short staffed Inside the doors they had music but couldn't hear it.. That would have been nice to have the music outside as well.. Rating from 1-10 w/ 10 being excellent I would rate it 6....."
