I made a reservation through Open Table. I advised the staff on the door when we arrived that we had a reservation. She seated us in the bar, we were 10 minutes early and then showed us to our table. The table was ready so making us sit in the noisy bar was annoying.

When I got home I had a telephone call from the restaurant and an email from Open Table indicating that I did not show up for the reservation. I then had to call and advise Open Table that was not the case. Very annoying to say the least and completely unnecessary.

Both my husband and I had pasta dishes and we were not impressed.

Special was steak and shrimp. Ordered medium rare, served medium well.

Sea bass was also over cooked and rice under cooked. Not worth the price of the meal.

New decor, but menu has gone downhill. And speaking of menus, they hand you a dirty , used menu to start. Miss the three course options of the past .

Service was very good.

Bistro 60 is inside the Over 55 community called Trilogy at the Polo Fields. There wasn't a mention to it. We went for the chicken marsala special, and it wasn't good, I equate to instant mashed potatoes, and prepared chicken, sliced made for mass-distribution. We will not return.

So disappointed with what has been one of our favorite restaurants until this year. Husband’s dinner was so salty it has to be returned. He ended up eating half of mine. Three course meal has been discontinued. Waiter seemed new and unattentive.

The remodel looks good but unable to sit outside due to private party. Bar was very noisy but restaurant was quiet.

We will be hard pressed to ever return.

We were excited to return to the remodeling, but didn’t get everything we were expecting.
Mexican dishes were a less spicy and too mild and cheesy.
We do want to return for other dishes as we really enjoy the location.

Because of dietary restrictions, we wanted to modify the menu items slightly with substitutions, and our first waiter struggled with knowing if he could do that or not. He was inclined not to. Kudos to our second waiter for recommending an idea that saved us a lot of money. He was great! Food was a little better than average, but not great.

We love Bistro 60 and have been coming here for years. Unfortunately there are many changes. Major change is chef is gone. Also remodeling and changing menus etc. however our biggest complaint lies with wait time of order to serving of food. We couldn’t tell if we were ignored because the kitchen is slow and the server doesn’t know what to say or the server doesn’t care. Typically, service is exceptional but unfortunately we have had poor service the last 4 times and it has been the same server. We hesitate to return and are concerned that the consistency of Bistro 60 has changed TOO much.

Service was a little spotty. No hostess on duty. A little confusion on getting everyone seat (about 12 people came in at the same time). We had 3 different servers helping, or trying to help us, and we really didn’t know who was primary. A little odd for just a couple.

This review is a complete 180 from previous. We had a reservation yet people with no reservation (3 groups) got seated before us in the main dining area. We got sent to Siberia. I stole the line from a group of three that shared the room. It is a room that is like a closet. My wife's view was of a construction ladder. The room was dimly lit for a reason. What is the point of a reservation? The service was below average compared to the week before. My wife ordered a salad and I hastily ordered just a pizza. The server must of said something to the cook that I was not happy being in Siberia because the pizza showed up like it had been overcooked on purpose.

As usual, we had an enjoyable evening at Bistro 60. Our waiter Gerardo and his assistant Irving made our dining experience even better. They were friendly, efficient and willing to quickly produce the chilie flakes or anchovies. Our food was delicious. We had Caesar Salad, beef barley soup and pizza. The soup was flavorful with an amazing amount of beef. The pizza had an amazingly thin crust, just like the pizza we enjoyed I Italy. We ordered Italian sausage, mushrooms, fresh mozzarella and anchovies on the side. Yum! The Caesar Salad is always a good choice. The restaurant has a new decor which is very nice. Now that the dining room has such a classy, comfortable feel, the TV which was muted, shouldn’t even be there any more. We will be back soon!

We ate twice in the restaurant this week.
The restaurant is undergoing renovation and is beautiful and we look forward to the completion. The ambiance score is low because it was cold due to the construction and we had to keep our jackets on throughout the meal. The new seating is beautiful.

We love the new menu. The previous menu was a fixed menu and three courses are just too much for us. I gave a three star for this meal as we had asked for a dry burger with everything on the side and it came with onions which I cannot eat. They were pickled and in with the melted cheese and difficult to scrape off. Also, we were not asked how we liked the burger. The previous evening we had dined here the service and dinner were five stars. The second evening it was a three.

We love the location of the restaurant and the new warmth - we live in PGA West and this gives another option to Ernies and June Hills at this end of La Quinta.

Overall a very pleasant dining experience.
The Hostess greeted us warmly and stopped by our table later to see if we were happy with everything. Nice touch.
Very nice ambience, with a new look.....loved the new booths which make for an intimate dining experience.
Nice guitar music was playing during dinner and wasn’t so loud that it prevented table conversation.
Food was quite good, though one member of our party requested a baked potato in place of mashed. “Not possible”, she was told. “Sorry.”
The table service was good, but lacked the polish of the “fine” dining” experience which this spot is trying to emulate. Unfortunately it falls a little short of that goal.
