Mitch's on El Paseo is just a great place. Staff is fantastic, great atmosphere and the food is just wonderful. The octopus cucumber was a real treat along with the sesame crusted ahi. We are locals and look forward to going back the Mitch's when they reopen in October.

Service was subpar at this ‘highly recommended’ restaurant. It was 45 minutes before we even got our drinks. We expected so much more and were disappointed w the lack of ambiance, server attitude and lack of attentiveness. The food was good, in fact the sea bass was tasty and perfectly cooked but with soggy overcooked vegetables. We’ve had much better dining experiences elsewhere in Palm Desert.

One of the best meals I have ever had! Our waiter was attentive but not over barring. It was a wonderful night out, just sad that they are closed for the summer.

This was by far the best dining we had on our vacation. We celebrated our daughter birthday there as they are closed for the summer. We ordered sushi as apps. Entrees were salmon, halibut, seabass, shrimp & scallops. It was beyond delicious. Everything was fresh, seasoned well, and enjoyed by our family of 5. We capped the night off with an order of "Chocolate Balloon Cake". It was impressive looking with a lit birthday candle on it. We highly recommend ordering it for desert even if one is not celebrating a birthday or milestone .. Best dinner ever!

Food was very good, I had the sushi rolls and it was very fresh and yummy. All of the waiting staff was very friendly and helpful. The drinks come in small glasses so pretty costly for a little glass full.

We are visiting and picked this restaurant “out of the blue” and I’m so glad we did. The food is excellent. Doesn’t seem kid friendly (I have 3 and pregnant with my 4th) but the everyone (from staff to patrons) were super sweet with my kids. We really enjoyed ourselves and may try to come back for one more meal.

This was our 1st time to Mitch’s. We were celebrating a birthday with my wife and kids. Parking was very easy.
Upon entering we were greeted promptly and given a table to have a drink in the bar area. The server was prompt, friendly and professional.
After our drink we went our table. The server was also prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable. He listened to what we liked and made recommendations.
Dinner was excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food. I ate the entire rib eye steak. Highly recommend this for the meat lover. My wife loved her Halibut and the kids enjoyed their meals also.
It wasn’t until later in the evening that we figured out Mitch himself was there the entire time from our arrival to when we left. We felt very comfortable the whole time, loved the food and will be back again.

The ambience and cocktails were nice. The service was terrible. We were rushed through our meal (5:00 reservation) and were gone by 6:00. Our waiter never asked how our food was and left the bill and ran off. The oysters were delicious (best part of the meal), the tomatoes in our caprese salad was mushy and over ripe and not edible. We did share this with the waiter and he just took our full plates and offered no solution. We ordered the special of the day which was duck. It was the worst duck we’ve ever had. Extremely strong game flavor. Again another meal we barely touched. If you are a local you are treated like family. If you are from out of town, don’t expect spectacular service. This restaurant came highly recommended from a family friend. We left hungry, disappointed and a few hundred dollars out of our pocket. Left there, and went to La Fa Wine Bar down the street and had a spectacular time with stellar service! Now that is a fabulous hidden gem!

I love Mitch’s. I brought friends from Las Vegas who have never been there. They LOVED it. Sushi was so fresh and delish. Our waitress was a gem with great suggestions and top knit h attention to us.
Greeted when we walked in and seated immediately. Even the valet was helpful considering the high heat.
Thank you everyone at Mitch’s!!!!

Our party started with cocktails and wine, moved on to sushi rolls. We had a variety of entrees. Mine was the Filet. We all raved about our choices. We topped off the feast with the Chocolate Balloon Cakes. Everything was perfect albeit too noisy to hear one another. We will definitely be back

Great meal - wine was half off (Wednesday apparently). I had the best sushi meal imaginable- truly one of the best Sushi dinners I’ve had. The chef went off menu and created a Nigiri plate that was extraordinary. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass which was also remarkable. I’ve dined here before and can add that they also have great steaks. Mitch greets everyone at the host stand and really cares about the customer experience. Not rushed at all - staff is friendly and knowledgeable. If you’re looking for a great meal in the desert - look no further. Highly recommended.

It was a lovely night at Mitch’s, and the service was excellent. One in our group ordered the sole and was a little disappointed that it was not cooked crisper. Of course, it is difficult to make sole crispy, but one of the managers insisted on asking the chef to try. It came back perfect! We highly recommend the restaurant!
