    Wow!!! Mitch’s on El Paseo was everything we had hoped for to celebrate our 35 year Wedding Anniversary. We are from out of town and know zero about local restaurant choices. We knew that we wanted a mid-casual place with that fine dining feel. We searched the reviews for top 10 Steak and Seafood fare in the Palm Springs area and found Mitch’s. The reviews were all high marks and the overall comment was “Exceptional”. For us the experience was”Exceptional”. When we arrived for our reservation we were greeted with “Happy Anniversary” and complimentary glasses of Champagne. Wow!!! We felt like special guests right when we walked in. We were seated immediately and staff attended to us in a timely but not rushed manner. We really wanted a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere and we definitely found it. Our server was a delightful young lady named Mallory. She was very attentive and made great suggestions which made the experience altogether amazing. Five Stars for Mallory, we loved her wonderful personality. On our special night out we wanted a very special restaurant and we were very fortunate that we found Mitch’s. One final note that made us feel like we were special was that Mitch himself greeted us when we walked in and he also made the effort to come to our table and make sure our experience was everything we had hoped for. Well Mitch, to you and your staff we can’t say thank you enough. Our Anniversary at your restaurant was “Exceptional” in every way. We can’t wait for our next visit.

    Mitch's restaurant in one of best fine dining restaurants in the Palm desert/Palm Springs area. The menu is great. The drinks are great and the service is the best. It has one of the best outdoor dining area. They also have complementary valet parking. The bar scene is lively and great happy hour.

    We’ve eaten at Mitch’s before and thoroughly enjoyed our time and dinner there. This time, however, the food was way less than mediocre. My salmon was dry and tasteless. I like my vegetables lightly cooked, but my broccolini was way underdone. The best part of my meal was the garlic rice. My husband’s pork was really bland. The only saving part of the evening was our waitress, who was lovely and prompt, and the company of our friends.

    I went with my family for dinner tonight and my experience wasn’t so amazing unfortunately. I ordered food for the table and my children’s food came out much earlier than mine and my husbands did. Basically we didn’t eat and I ended up paying for all this food that just went in the trash. When I addressed it with the server, he didn’t even seem to care and even said he forgot to put one of our entrees in. I ordered appetizers that came out with the rest of the meal too and being appetizers these dishes should have come out first. I am pretty disappointed for spending all this money and not a good experience.

    Been going to Mitch‘s for years and always sat outside, enjoyed the ambience sitting inside for a change since it was too hot to sit outside. As always the food was excellent and the service was terrific. Can’t wait to come back in the fall.

    We are locals had a great experience at Mitch's. Our son was with us who is from Las Vegas and has access to some of the finest restaurants in operation. His Rib Eye Steak was perfection as was my husband's 8 oz fillet. My chicken dish was the best chicken I have had in years. The sweet potato fries and the truffle fries were terrific. Our son also had a tuna/crab sushi dish which he said was superb. We were seated in an area that was not too noisy in the downstairs area. The wait staff kept our glasses full and were attentive. All in all, a great experience and one which we will repeat.

    The jumbo shrimp and scallops were so delicious, along with the vegetables served with my dish. The grilled asparagus was cooked just right. Tremendous service - which made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. I highly recommend Mitch's if you want delectable meals and excellent service.

    Mitch’s was recommended to us by a local and it did not disappoint! We weren’t super hungry so we shared a couple of sushi rolls and both were fresh and fabulous!! Can’t wait to go back and try their regular menu items with a chocolate balloon cake for dessert! Apparently it’s a must have so don’t eat too much for dinner.

    I went with my mom and brothers and none of us had ever been there before- seriously I don’t know how. It was AMAZING! We didn’t even make it to the entrées page because every single appetizer looked so good. We tried the jalapeño popper, grilled creamy bbq shrimp, ahi tartare, crispy rice, beets salad, I feel like I’m forgetting something but it’s probably because we ended up ordering seconds on the poppers, creamy bbq shrimp and crispy rice. Oh and then our server Jorge was absolutely incredible! Attentive, personable and went above and beyond when he found out my mom really wanted steamed clams. The dude definitely made it happen. All 4 of us were in food coma heaven last night. Oh but wait we also did dessert, the balloon cake and the strawberry butter cake, they were both so good! We can’t wait to go back!

    Amazing restaurant. In town from Boston and had an amazing dinner. We arrived and were seating promptly. The server was great and recommended the sea bass for my wife and I got the pork chop. Food was cooked perfectly. The server and the owner Mitch checked on us multiple times. Mitch stopped by and asked where we were from and engaged in conversation with us. He was super friendly. He gave us a complimentary dessert “Chocolate balloon cake” for our anniversary. I highly recommend this restaurant and if ever back in Palm Desert, we will definitely go back. Thank you for a great evening!

    We couldn’t sit inside although a lot of people were being moved inside and we requested indoors and were told it was full. There were a ridiculous amount of flies making it a very frustrating dining experience as we couldn’t enjoy the food or ambiance.

    Our party of five had the most delicious dinner! The Chilean Sea Bass was very fresh and had a delicious sauce. The rack of lamb, Dover Sole, and lobster tail with shrimp fried rice were also stellar! The chocolate balloon dessert was a special treat! The outdoor patio was so beautiful and stayed cool and comfortable. Mitch stopped by our table and we complimented the waiter and the food to him. We can’t wait to come back on our next trip!

    I have heard so many wonderful things about Mitch’s, I couldn’t wait to try it! We were there for lunch on Saturday for lunch, which happened to be the last lunch off the season. Where do I begin? The staff is friendly and attentive. We were greeted with a smile, and a genuineness to make sure we were enjoying the “Mitch’s Experience “ to the fullest. The food is phenomenal! There is nothing better that to be able to taste layers of flavors in each bite. Thank you to the staff, and to the owners for such a wonderful experience. We most definitely will be back!!
