The food is some of the best
The food is some of the best dining food I have ever eaten, and was very modestly priced for the portion size and most of all quality. The service matched the food in superiority and quality. We have since recommended Cafe Des Beaux-Arts to friends who had the same gret dining experience. Highly recommended restaurant...we will return!

Cafe Beaux Arts isn't new
Cafe Beaux Arts isn't new and it's not hip or flashy but the food and the service was the best we had during our weekend in the desert. I ate at a lot of places this weekend that spent all the money on the decor (which got me in there once) and forgot about the food. This restaurant did the opposite. We will go back.

THE best dinner in two weeks
THE best dinner in two weeks in Palm Springs area! We go for lunch - it's great; we go for dinner - it's even better!

Lovely French bistro
Located on a corner of El Paseo, during high season, reservations are a must. The menu is classic French with a strong Mediterranean influence. They have several great price fixed meal options. Portions are generous. Luckily they have "half order" options for dessert which are the perfect size to share and satisfy your sweet tooth. The service was wonderful, attentive but not smothering. We brought a very nice bottle of wine which they graciously opened and poured for us. My only complaint would be the wine glasses should be upgraded for really nice wine.

We have been coming to Café
We have been coming to Café Des Beaux-Arts for years, mostly for lunch. The atmosphere is always lively, the service excellent, and the menu is unique, consistently well-prepared, and reasonably priced. Although some of the traditional French bistro fare can be a bit rich, there are a lot of lighter options on the menu, especially the wonderful salads. Some of our favorite things include the poached salmon salad, the curried chicken salad, the crepes, the vegetarian quiche, and the fabulous flan for dessert.

Very good food. Old school French restaurant but very good. Right in the heart of the El Paseo shopping avenue.

One of our favorite places
One of our favorite places in the desert. We visited recently for both lunch and dinner and were not disappointed either time. The luncheon scene was especially vibrant, busy but not too crowded, included a fashion show and great food and wine. We highly recommend Cafe Dec Beaux-Arts to anyone looking for an excellent and fun place to have a great lunch.

Another pleasant evening at
Another pleasant evening at the Cafe Des Beaux-Arts. One of my favorite restaurants in Palm Desert. Consistently delivers an above average dining experience.

Have eaten here many times which reflects my satisfaction with the whole experience. Seating is sort of outside inside so on hot days only misters contribute to cooling. Food is always good and prices are typical for El Paseo restaurants.

Go with the plat du jour
When traveling to California, a good fish to dine on is the sand dab. It is a treat for me since it is not available in the Midwest. This offering attracted my wife and I to this restaurant but when we perused the menu we noted the special, Chilean sea bass, and it caught our eyes. We opted for that. Wow, what a good choice. It was one of the best meals I have ever had.

Lovely evening, pleasant patio
Mega misters on the outside of the large open windows made the covered patio quite comfortable on a very hot evening. My husband and I both ordered from the restaurant week 3 course menu, and were happy with our choices and the great service. My sand dabs, with perfectly cooked vegetables and twice baked potato were excellent, and my husband enjoyed his beef stroganoff. Our salads, (spinach,and Beaux-Arts salad with prosciutto, hearts of palm, goat cheese and olives) were fresh and large, and our dessert, strawberries in cabernet sauce over ice cream, was refreshing.
Parking on the street was easily available nearby on Sunday evening.

Night Under the Stars
A beautiful night, a beautiful wife, and a beautiful meal . For the intimate dining experience, try Cafe Des Beaux - Arts on swanky El Paseo for an evening of fine dining without maxing out your credit card. A cafe table at the window allows the evening breeze to help you enjoy cocktails and dinner. Recommend the French Onion soup to start, followed by an entree of either Braised Short Ribs, or Coq au Vin. A chocolate profiterole with vanilla bean ice cream ends this awesome night. Reservations a must during the winter season via open table.

This little corner Bistro was a pleasant surprise! Thanksgiving is always a time for our family to cook at home, but this year we needed to eat out. The food was very good and the atmosphere was cozy. Would be curious to try it for a romantic night out next.....
