The 3rd Corner Wine Shop & Bistro
Neighborhood RestaurantLove the concept. Great wine (area) selections on display for your selection. Have gone back for the the mussels w fries and of course, wine. Wait staff are knowledgeable and attentive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis has become one of ourThis has become one of our favorite places. One of our guests required an accomodation by the kitchen and they could not have been more accomodating. All of our dinners were outstanding.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite place!Great dining, great bar crowd and great outdoor seating. Put this restaurant on your list of favorites! Had an early Friday evening dinner reservation, it was busy but not noisy, the bar crowd (other end of the restaurant) was pretty crowded, but wasn't a dining distraction at all. Service was prompt,server knowledgeable & friendly. Wine & drinks are a good size. The food arrived quickly helping make our theater reservation. Both were well prepared, well presented and delicious! Considering the great quality of the food, prices are more than reasonable. The atmosphere is sophisticated casual, white linen table clothes amongst the crates of wine. The crowd was sophisticated casual too. Not a lot of kids (like say, California Pizza).5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening!The wine choices are great and the food was perfect for our trio. We really enjoyed the patio too.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit to 3rd CornerOur first visit to 3rd Corner Wine Shop & Bistro and definitely not our last!! We met our friends in the bar for happy hour and enjoying the delicious food and wine. My scallops were delicious as was the beet salad. Great wine selection and we look forward to dining at the bistro in the future! Highly recommend!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA hidden gem. Excellent allA hidden gem. Excellent all around and would not hesitate to recommend for a great date night.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMdan's the man!!location in palm desert:
-was hard to find, lived here for years and didn't even know it existed.
-doors that were supposed to close to patio had a wide gap between and allowed alot of cigar and cigarette smoke in to anyone sitting near wall. very unappealing, had to leave after awhile.
other than that, was a very memorable experience. we were in the lounge for the wine tasting and lunch. experience was 'made' by an employee named dan. we're still talking about him!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food/service. I'll return.The scallops and duck entrees were excellent. Service was spot-on. Kind of lame that they charge a $5 corkage fee on their own bottles sold in-house. I'd go back for sure anyway. I want to try their Sunday brunch; sounded good.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing staff, great food.i am a weekender out in the desert, but my parents use my house in the winter, and they kept telling me this was their favorite restaurant. they couldnt stop talking about it. so i went with a friend who was in town with her toddler -- we went early of course. we didnt think to ask about a high chair. when we arrived, we found out they didnt have a high chair. they seated us, but we were contemplating leaving. meanwhile, the hostess (a mother herself) took it upon herself to run over to CPK to grab a high chair for us. we didnt ask for it, she just did it. the customer service here was amazing, the staff was so gracious and lovely! and the food is really very good -- the wine list cannot be beat.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always perfect.

Food was consistently good, although menu is very heavy and rich. Service was very attentive though a bit rushed. Ambience and lighting were very nice. Wine store looked inviting and I would like to go back to visit it. One suggestion is to add some lighter meals to the menu for those of us who don't want to eat very rich and hearty food.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, the 3rd Corner neverAs usual, the 3rd Corner never disappoints me!

The owner came to our table to deliver and serve the wine we had purchased. This was a personal touch that you don't see to often at other restaurants. The food and service was really good. Would return for a 3rd time and recommend this dining spot to others.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMade reservations online forMade reservations online for 8 and later changed number to 6 day before. On arrival table was set for 8 but was quickly corrected.
Three of the six ordered cioppino that was rated excellent by all. The other three equally enjoyed the half roasted chicked, steak with pomme frites and the Divers Scallops. There was not a morsel left on any of the plates! The wine chosen from the wine shop was rated excellent by all for the price. Loved the idea of wandering through the wine shop to choose your own wine. Our server was personable, vey competent and got a nice tip for his efforts. All agreed that this place was a real find and definitely added to our annual Palm Desert "must do" holiday list.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit, excellent food,Second visit, excellent food, quiet. Will choose again.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner in the DesertWe truly enjoyed our dinner at 3rd Corner. We were seated promptly, addressed by a waiter quickly, advised on our wine selection and served quickly without feeling rushed. The wine shop with corkage concept is such a terrific way to serve wine. The food was delicious. We had a wide variety of dishes, pasta, scallops, lamb burger and short ribs and everyone liked their food. We were celebrating birthdays and were given a delicious bread pudding dessert. Can't say enough good things about our experience and will definitely return.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone in our party greatlyEveryone in our party greatly enjoyed their dinner.

Friendly and efficient service. Love the concept of selecting your wine from the retail wine shop selection and having it served with your meal. This represents an excellent dining value.
