Matches really cares about their customer's experience. We always feel welcomed here. Their summer special dinner menu is great - not the typical offering of three items you wouldn't order anyway. That's why we keep coming back!

Have always enjoyed Mitch’s and it’s the only place where I trust the sushi. It’s closing for the season but it’s worth the wait for it to reopen in the fall and to be able to eat outside again.

Took my girlfriend here for our 2yr anniversary. We were both new to Mitch’s. Safe to say we were blown away. The staff and service was impeccable. The food, one word.. UNBELIEVABLE!! We started with the fresh seafood platter for two. And it exceeded our expectations. Each entire came out very quick and our server was very attentive. We will gladly return to Mitch’s!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
