For the best seafood anywhere, this is the place. Extensive wine list and excellent chardonnays to go with your seafood selection. Don't stop at seafood, there is something for all tastes.

We love this restaurant but we had a couple of glitches. Mistake on one meal which had to be reordered and one meal with an inadequate ingredient quotient. We will go back because this was unusual for this restaurant. There were 6 of us and the others all loved their meals, the service, etc.

I hope ownership or management reads this and takes action. A group of 7 of us were here Sunday night after receiving a solid recommendation from a local . Our server was friendly but almost every one of us had an issue with one of our courses . This is not a group of individuals who complain so for someone in this group to not finish something, send something back or make a comment to the server is unusual. Severely over dressed salad , a flavorless and pricey lamb shank were some if the highlights. Staff did not seem empowered to do much other than shrug. Our server said she would remove the lamb shank from the bill but that didn’t happen. The worst was one of our party went to the bar to get change for a $20 in order to top the valet. The staff at the bar gave him $15 back. When he asked for the rest of his change the staff said “ that’s our tip for making change for you. 0ur friend said” very funny now please give me my money back” and the staff at the bar responded with “ don’t you think we deserve a tip?” The staff eventually returned the change but that incident pretty much ruined the evening. At this point we just wanted out if this place and didn’t want a confrontation with a manager. I can understand an off night with the kitchen but the treatment from staff was unacceptable and hopefully will be addressed .

We had a fabulous dinner for my husband's 50th birthday! The food was amazing and so was the live music and atmosphere. The service was good but could be a lot better.

Thank you!

What can I say - the food was scrumptious and taking friends from LA for the first time only added to my delight as they were truly satisfied with the food, service, ambiance and the welcome given by Mitch and his team.

Mitch’s is a favorite and al fresco dining on a balmy day can’t be beat. Two had “dynamite oysters” (rich and decadent), I had tempura shrimp accompanied by tempura onion rings (perfect texture and flavor) and one had a side of peppers. The appetizers filled us up , but two of us had room for fish and chips (delicate and flavorful coating, very tasty shoestring fries and creamy cole slaw) while the other two had Caesar salad (crisp romaine, perfect Caesar dressing and crisp toast - a delight). The service was somewhat spotty- water glasses and iced tea unfilled while I had to ask three times for a coffee refill. Nonetheless, the runner delivered every dish at the perfect temperature — nothing suffered from extra time under the heat lamps! All-in-all a very satisfying and most pleasant experience. We will, of course, be back.

Sitting out on the patio was wonderful and perfect for conducting a business meeting - the bunless (healthy) hamburger and the pistachio encrusted salmon salad were DELICIOUS!

Mitch's is one of our favorite places to eat in the desert. We took out of town friends for a special dinner. AS usual we had a pleasant table outside on the patio. It was pretty quiet. We could hear live music, but this year they were located inside near the bar so it provided a nice background for conversation. We preferred this location for the live music (though I wouldn't want to eat inside now as the music would be too loud).
Wine was 1/2 off. Dinner was excellent. Service was very good. Our friends were impressed and we enjoyed our meal once again at Mitch's.

Our hotel at Omni recommended this restaurant. Everything about the restaurant was great. I got the Chilean sea bass, my husband got the rib eye and son got the caterpillar roll and we all absolutely LOVED our food. Atmosphere was beautiful (outside patio seating) and service was wonderful. Also ordered a bottle of white wine our waiter recommended. So crisp and refreshing! Loved this place and we can’t wait to come back next time we are in town!

My guest was in awe of the ambiance and the service at the restaurant. She expressed that she was a vegan and they offered to make her one of several vegan plates that are not on the menu. She thought she died and went to heaven, and naturally, I was so proud, because this is like my home away from home. I love Mitch's on ElPaseo. If you haven't tried it yet, you'll love it too.

We SHOULD have ordered from menu, not prix fix dinner. While the appie was delicious, the seafood pasta was very plain.

We were disappointed that the lawn was dead and the art removed. There was a fire pit going when it was 85 degrees.

Excellent dinner with Fanny Bay oysters, the Chef's special plate and enjoyed with Pahlmeyer 2017 Chardonnay. Beautiful patio and a very special new booth on the patio. Service by Jodi was excellent. If you enjoy good food, nice ambiance and excellent service, Mitch's is the place to go.

This is the place to be. The ambiance is fantastic with love music inside and a great outdoor seating area. The food is really what it's all about and they deliver a great meal. I had a superb Dover Sole. My wife loved her shrimp and scallops. The ahi tacos were a great way to start. This was our second time here and we loved it both times.

When your guest thanks you profusely for the wonderful ambiance, service and delicious food - in this case, the comfort food of a Monte Cristo sandwich - you know you've been to the right place. Thank you, Mitch and Milissa you run a topnotch restaurant.
