There are much better values (quality and price) for the mussels entre. The onion soup however was unbeatable.

La Brasserie Bistro is our favorite dinner and lunch spot in the Desert. The appetizers and entrees are all of gourmet quality and make for very special meals. We meet long-time friends here and are able to request a quiet table where we enjoy catching up with each other.

Came here as a single diner and left very pleased. I ate at a high top near the bar and had excellent attention from the bartender.

Perfect martini, Bibb lettuce salad steak tartare entree with pomme frites and a good glass of Cote’s du Rhône wine. I enjoyed every bit of the food and left with a smile on my face.

My husband and I come here to have the Werner Schnitzel. It is delicious. And of course we always start off with the dozen escargot. Great food and great service.

A pretty good place but a bit on the pricey side. Maybe I'm living in the past but a couple slices of liver and a gob of mashed potatoes shouldn't be $30. And $6.00 to split a plate for light eaters seems a bit much. First time I've seen that actually.

The only reason I gave the service a lower value was because I got the impression our server was new or at least inexperienced. He never told us the soup of the day nor the fish. Also, the tables for 2 are tight seating when the appetizers are served on long platters and the servers don't really know how to do a "proper" presentation but rather just drop it on the table wherever it can fit. My husband enjoyed his Rack of Lamb and I found the Veal Schnitzel excellent

Poor service detracts from food. Menu has been downsized with some high quality signature dishes deleted. What remains are done well but ordinary, steaks, fish etc. little of French flavor remains, now more mass market appeal.

The veal was not edible...all fat and grisly. The Oso Bucco was ok at best. Food service was extremely slow, although our server was attentive. The restaurant itself was nice as were the workers we encountered.

Excellent service and delightful waitress. Always enjoy the atmosphere especially on the patio. Food delicious. This is the second time we have bought friends this season. Hidden Gem!! We were also not aware of the half price wine on Sunday nights. A real bonus

Visited La Brasserie Bistro and Bar this past Saturday night. It was the semi finals of tennis matches. They were packed but the service was amazing. Dee Dee was our server and she did a great job. My wife had the rack of lamb and it was prepared perfectly. Everything including the desert and coffee after the meal were 5 stars.

One of our favorite places - reliably good to great food, attentive service, comfortable atmosphere and a great patio that belies the fact it is in a shopping centre. We were a party of 4 people at our last visit and we all left happy.

From the east coast and every visit to the Palm Springs area would not be complete without dining at LaBrasserie. In 10 days we were there twice. Service and quality of cuisine is truly outstanding. Parking is usually not difficult. Recommend reservations and requests are accommodated when possible.

We have been here many times and as usual the food was excellent. The menu has changed, but is still excellent.
The service, however, left us a bit peeved!! One of our party flew from Germany to volunteer at a local event (LQAF) so 2 of 6 of us were about 30 minutes late for the 5:15 reservation. The staff were informed upon arrival. We were informed that we must be finished by 7:30!! Rather an unpleasant beginning...
The waiter was a bit distracted and inattentive. The water server was so distracted that he frequently poured water everywhere but in the glass!!!

Great food, but the treatment and service left a bad taste in our mouths, this time.

One of the very few restaurants in the area where the chef actually cooks your meal to order rather than just reheating the usual. Their truffle fries are a decadent treat than can be offset with one of their excellent salads.
