Another fabulous business lunch. My guest came from Palm Springs, had never been to Mitch's and, naturally, he loved it.

Just had one of the best meals in a long time. I had the tempura prawn starter while my wife had the creamy lobster. Both were excellent. We are from the West Coast so I thought ordering seafood in the desert was stupid. However my daughter’s scallops and prawns were excellent. Not over cooked, and fresh. The garlic chicken breast was also very good.

The food was great. The service to. But I am so confused....Why ask if this is your first time here or are you celebrating a special occasion and you answer yes, a birthday and then no one does diddly squat for you. Why ask the dam question. Very disappointing.

The noise level was so high, we couldn’t hear a thing anyone at our table said. We sat upstairs where the noise level was a lot lower than it was downstairs. Yet, we couldn’t even hear ourselves think. The food and service were outstanding.

The food was excellent, and the service was very good, but the extremely high noise level ruined the dining experience for us, because we could not hold a conversation.

The ambiance was also disappointing, because of the large screen tv’s—we weren’t looking for a sports bar atmosphere.

The management doesn’t seem to have a concept—is it fine dining, a sports bar, a jazz cabaret or what?

In addition to large screen tv’s, there was loud boom-boom music playing, followed by live jazz/cabaret music, competing with loud diners, shouting to be heard—the acoustics are horrible.

A very unique deserving of much more attention! Food, service, and decor are excellent. The husband and wife team that owns and operates this restaurant are like your best friend two minutes after meeting them. The decor is way past spectacular with some aspects being like things you have not seen before or not seen in a very long time. By the way, the prices are very reasonable for what you are getting. Loved it.

We wanted a nice place for a Valentine Day lunch. Thats exactly what we got. Our waiter Orlando was extremely helpful and attentive, as was the gentleman bussing our table. There was a guitar player very close to us, but the music was very nice and definitely in the "background" not interferring with conversation but very pleasing. This is our 3rd time here and never disappointed.

We had a great time, great food and overall it was a really nice dining experience. We just wish the waiter was a little more welcoming, he was polite but gave a vibe that he was a little stressed out. No big deal but being in the service industry myself, i know attitude makes a world of difference. We’ll go back for sure.

Great dining, bar, menu, service, staff. Only negative was a ridiculous guest with a “parrot service bird” on his shoulder. As we understand it, the guy threatens lawsuit if Mitch tosses him. No consideration of other guests who my have bird allergies. PC in America has gone way too far!

Took a new person to lunch who has never been to Mitch's. I was running late and when I called to say that she said "no worries, the ambiance is exquisite. The service is above and beyond, they're treating me royally." And they do treat everyone royally. I just love this place.

You've got to love when you go to lunch with a GF and there is a retailer showing INCREDIBLE jewelry to the diners ... I suppose we could have opted out, but why would we? Diamonds are still a girl's best friend, at least for me. Thanks, Mitch's for another exceptional Lunch.

Went for Happy hour but it was a bit crowded in the bar. It was raining so we couldn't sit outside and the plastic walls were down but we thought the ambiance was great nonetheless. The decor is new, upbeat and fun. The menu has many options to suit a variety of desires. The manager Dane was fantastic - visited every table, took photos. Parking was easy. Will definitely return!

Mitch’s always has the right vibe for fun drinks, sushi, great patio! It is my favorite spot for a night out or a lovely lunch on the patio! Celebrating 6 years of making us all happy on the night we were there, thanks for the complimentary champagne Mitch! Cheers on your success! Our order favorites, tempura shrimp, roll #808 and spicy tuna roll....all can be shared.
