Again no disappointment...celebrated another birthday with some friends and it was most excellent. The service and food above reproach and the spacious dining room ideal for those that are handicapped.

Let me just start with the ambiance, fantastic. Nicely decorated restaurant and amazing views of the Classic Club golf course. The server, Natalie was very accommodating and had a wonderful knowledge of the menu and had great recommendations. The restaurant was not extremely busy and we never felt rushed. The server assistant Brandon was spot on with clearing the table and making sure that our water glasses stayed full. The food was great...Pork chop, Sea Bass, Crab Cake special of the day and Salmon were all cooked perfectly served HOT and had fresh wonderful flavor. Desserts ended the meal on a perfect note. Half Baked cookies with ice cream and a unique Churro Bowl with Ice Cream...yum !!

This is a hidden gem...it looks and feels like a private club but it is open to the public....glad I foound this restaurant. Natalie told me about their Prime Rib Wednesdays, 3 course meal for $ 29 cant wait to go back.

Always enjoy lunch or happy hour here especially when it is not to hot and we can set out on the lovely balcony over looking the beautiful golf course. Dinners are also most delicious!

Bellatrix has an elegant dining room, yet because it is associated with the golf course it is not stuffy. The menu offered a variety of interesting fish and meat dishes. The four of us enjoyed the Chilean sea bass, turmeric coated salmon, and steak. The desserts were also very inventive and delicious. Our server was very attentive and pleasant.

On vacation in Palm Desert and Bellatrix sounded like a good option for dinner. We had the filet and the scallops, both the entrees and the service were excellent. The filet may have been the best I have ever had.

3/21/17 we came as part of a Groupon Gift Promotion....we took advantage of it for a Birthday Celebration...we now find ourselves back a year later for the same Birthday Celebration. It was as good as the first time and we now have a tradition staring in our new home in Palm Desert.
Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Food was excellent. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a place to celebrate special occasions as well as dinners and lunches.

Food was not hot - but did not send back - as other guests eat without you. Make sure all plates hot when brought to table. There was NO cocktail menu for a restaurant that size. Was told cocktail menu only at bar. Lots of empty tables???

This was a first visit and for lunch; so we were not certain what to expect. We were seated in the bar area which can be extremely noisy. The food was good, and the service very good. Will give it another try now that we know more about the seating. This is a lovely building with beautiful views, especially downstairs by the Grille where there is a waterfall, beautiful flowers and view of the golf couse.

We have consistently enjoyed our lunches at Bellatrix. It's not too crowded for lunch so it's a good place to meet for a longer lunch with friends. Food and service are consistently good.

Upon our timely arrival for our reservation, we were made to wait while the host ran around trying to "multi task" a sale of wines plus directing other staff. Then we were seated at a table for 2 in a corner -- great idea but next to us was a table of 10 who were (not their fault) having a loud and wonderful time. We could hardly hear each other over their shouts. Service staff was polite but obviously anxious to attend to other duties. We are great fans of chilean sea bass. While it was cooked okay, it was overrun by the heaviness of the sauce and the horrid pickled red cabbage which belonged over pork or some other similar meat. It, too, was all wrong for the delicate fish. We went to Bellatrix based on past years, but won't return.

This is country club ambience- you either like it- or you don't. You do want to be out on the terrace- that's where the lovely across the golf course to the mountains view is. We all had salads and they were fresh, good sized and nicely presented. The soup was excellent as well.
Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. All in all, a very nice experience.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. We love to come for Sunday lunch as you don't feel rushed and the service is terrific.
This is also a go to HAPPY HOUR destination, but the noise level increases considerably as it's usually very busy. The appetizers are a real bargain and always cooked just right.

The ambiance here is outstanding if you can sit out on the patio. We could not because of the strong winds. Therefore, I had to adjust the ambiance rating down from very good to ok.

We were greeted promptly. We arrived early. No problem. John took care of us. Our excellent server, Christy, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back and request that she be our server. The food was very good and the wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. Nice view of golf course from our inside table. Just happened to be too windy for outside seating.

The service was excellent and also the food. We were disappointed that we were seated in the bar area instead of the main dining room. When we arrived at 11:00AM, there was lots of room in main dining room. So, not sure why we were seated in the bar area.
We will still come back again.

The ahi with soba noodles was well presented and value was good. All three of us had the same and we all agreed it was delicious. There are no flatbreads or bread offered with meal, not unusual these days. Un fortunately we were seated in the bar area which was quite noisy so had difficulty with hearing our own conversation. We were not offered outside seating although there were a few tables available. We waited five minutes for someone to come to the from desk to seat us and walked through with dirty tables bussed but not wiped down. It looked like there was not enough staff. Perhaps dining is another experience. Since this was a fly in fly out situation the next time I would opt for a quieter environment/restaurant since they don't seat the dining room for lunch.
