Mitch's on El Paseo Prime Seafood
Great atmosphere and food
We come here a lot. Sad to say this was our least favorite meal to date. The fried rice was not good at all, the risotto was fair and the 2 sushi dishes were good.
Service was fair - the restaurant was not busy.
Whenever I have the opportunity to have a staff meeting over lunch, we go to Mitch's. The staff loves it, I love it. So you should know, Mitch's is good for having meetings too.
PRO/ There were 6 of us to celebrate my special guy’s Birthday. The best part was that I could order Silver Oak for half price. Well wait a minute, the food was really good. Jose was our server and he was super nice knew what he was doing and covering every detail. Mitch stopped by as well as his son. It didn’t take forever and a day to get our check.
Con/ my lobster salad had more greens than meat. Ah well, guess I need them.
If you're looking for the best seafood in town, this is the place to dine. Excellent quality and service. Unfortunately, closing in July for the Summer but will be back in the fall.
We love Mitch's and go as often as possible, had some friends in town and took them there knowing that the quality is always there. A nice night out, enjoined it greatly.
We love Mitch’s! We brought friends who had never been there and they loved it! Now, they’ll be back soon, too, just like us! Fantastic food and service and cocktails!
Overpriced in my opinion, however the service was excellent. My Alaskan King Crab legs were fabulous but the vegetables were tough as nails and their fancy "rice patty" thing was inedible. Our waiter did try to gently insist that our overdone steak was indeed medium rare, but we talked him into taking it back. He should not have questioned us on this
We picked Mitch's for our bachelorette party dinner. Mitch, the owner seated our party and brought us a round of shots on the house. We met his lovely wife and they shared their story of marriage and restaurant ownership with us. We had the best experience and the food was beyond amazing! We ALL will definitely be back.
Good value the money. Food was great. Will definitely return.
Love it! If you're looking for a special place with a fabulous summer menu, you need to get to Mitch's
Mitch and his team continue to provide excellence in a consistent and friendly way to residents and visitors of this great destination. Highly recommend!
Food & service were excellent, but the space needs a redo.
Love it always...💛💙💓💕💘
The restaurant week menu was less than appealing. Had I seen the specific menu prior, I may not of gone. However, the price of the filet mignon was comparable to the set price, even though it didn’t include soup, salad, dessert. I chose that avenue and was very pleased — The steak was great! Plus, an added bonus, I was able to get a bottle of wine for 50% off and enjoyed a very nice wine for only $24! It worked out very well.
The food was fabulous as always. We sat out on the patio. The brown grass is not attractive. Maybe put in some desert scape. Just a suggestion.
Best restaurant we have been to in Palm Desert area. Excellent food and the waitress was wonderful.
Great meal, beautiful night on the patio of Mitch's!
Very welcoming, I had Rombauer Chardonnay by the glass while waiting for my party to arrive. We had Freemark Abbey Merlot with the double cut pork chop which had a fantastic cherry reduction sauce. Also ordered the shrimp and scallops, nice old school style, prepared with that taste of comfort food. Grand scale stying, valet parking and a large accommodating bar. We were very comfortable on the patio.
Always a pleasure to dine at Mitch's. Staff and food never disappoint.
We arrived and were greeted by one of the managers, Biff. He offered us to sit inside or outside and we decided on the gorgeous outdoor patio. Our server, Jodi, was wonderful and was always available if we needed anything. Another manager, Dane, also stopped by to welcome us. We started with a half dozen of the Kumamoto oyster which were crisp with a clean finish. Delicious. And then the Don Juan sushi roll. The perfect amount of texture combined with fresh flavor. My husband ordered the Chilean sea bass which was accompanied by sautéed snow peas, baby yellow squash and garlic fried rice. It was cooked to perfection and melted in our mouths. I had the jumbo shrimp and scallops which were grilled and served alongside mashed potatoes, steamed baby heirloom carrots and broccolini. The presentation of the food was beautiful and the flavors complemented each other so well. To finish our experience, Biff brought us the Chocolate Balloon Cake, a decadent chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, granola oreo crunch, vanilla ice cream all topped with melted hot fudge and a raspberry. The presentation was amazing, the food and service was perfection. Thank you Mitch’s for making our special celebration so nice. We can’t wait to come back.
Mitch’s is a great restaurant!
We had a 5pm reservation just as the restaurant was opening. We had a newborn in a stroller and the staff at Mitch's took good care of us. We started with the Lemon Roll from the sushi menu. All the sushi is really good here. Followed that up with garden salads. Seafood is a specialty here and it didn't disappoint. My wife had the scallops and shrimp. I asked our excellent server, Emily, if I should get the Sea Bass or the Sole and she recommended the Sea Bass which was one of the best prepared pieces of fish I have ever had. Chocolate Lava Cake to finish and the meal was complete. I would recommend Mitch's to anyone. They have a nice outdoor patio which is lit with white lights at night which is super nice. We will make sure to visit Mitch's again on our next visit to Palm Desert.
Service was great, quality of food outstandyng desert was very good thankyou all your staff.
We had the sea bass and rack of lamb, outstanding!
It was quite obvious that this is a well run restaurant.
Our first visit, we will be back!
Everything was a great experience. Definitely coming back.
We celebrated a birthday for a friend in the courtyard on a heavenly evening. The ambiance was superb! As usual the meal, especially the sushi items, was fantastic! We had great service and would highly recommend Mitch's on El Paseo for lunch or dinner.
Food is exceptionally good and the service is very good. Couldn’t ask for better
They have such a great variety at high quality. It is quickly becoming my favorite in the Valley!
We went for happy hour and wanted to sit on the patio, however were told that HH was only served in the bar.
Nothing indicates this on the website and there is a separate Bar menu as well which makes it confusing. We chose Mitch’s because we wanted to be outside, so it was very disappointing. It would be helpful to other guests to clarify this.
Also, they missed a great opportunity to show great customer service if they had let us sit there, as the patio was empty when we arrived and not full when we left.
One of my guests was here for an event a month or so ago, the other had never been - they LOVED it. If you're looking for great food, fabulous ambiance, over-the-moon service you want Mitch's on El Paseo.
This restaurants, the staff, and the food are PLUM INCREDIBLE
We absolutely LOVE to here. The service, food and ambiance are great!
This was my first time eating at Mitch's. It won't be my last because it was fabulous! This restaurant was very busy and for good reason. The setting is nice and very comfortable. The service is excellent. The menu choices are very nice. I had the Salmon on Brioche bun. It was perfectly cooked, full of flavor and moist and tender. Excellent quality salmon. My friend had the Kobi burger with grilled vegetables. She ate every bite. We shared a mixed beet salad. It was excellent too. We both thoroughly enjoyed our lunches!
Just a nice place to enjoy your evening. Great food, super service and a wonderful experience.
the staff was engaging and kind. being a group of young adults in such a nice setting, we felt welcome and tKen care of.
Good food nice atmosphere but on this night the service seemed off from normal.
