Are you in the mood for a touch of Europe on Palm Canyon Drive? Look no further than Pomme Frite. Nestled in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, its authentic European ambiance will transport you to a cafe in Brussels. Pomme Frite has attracted a serious following of food aficionados since it opened in 1999, thanks to its simplicity and by consistently serving superior cuisine with pride. This quaint and cozy bistro features Belgian specialties, moderately priced, including mouthwatering steamed black mussels and Flemish style beef stew (simmered in Belgian beer). A wide selection of Belgian beers (including Chimay), French and California wines are also available to whet your palette.
The aromas emanating from Pomme Frite"s kitchen are enchanting and mellow even the most severe food critics. The charming patio is perfect for street and people watching on Palm Canyon Drive, and the dreamy European music insures a relaxing and romantic dining experience.

    The service was excellent. We both tried new dishes and some new French wine and all was marvelous. This is such a great spot for dining and the food never disappoints. Even on a somewhat warm night and the restaurant was busy, the room temperature was perfect. It is one of our top 5 spots in the desert.

    Pomme Frite is our favorite restaurant in Palm Springs. We have eaten there many, many times. Our dinner on 6-17 was not up to its usual standards. It took a REALLY long time for us to get our food, as in, my husband and I were there for 2 hours, and most of that time was spent waiting for our food to arrive. He ordered the surf and turf and thought it was excellent, although he thought the broccoli tasted charred/mushy. My branzino seemed dry and overdone. The profiterole pastry was tough. The escargots and frog legs were both excellent (although we noticed that none of the tables were given a bread basket at the start of the meal). Despite this, we will return again, as we have always had good food and a good dining experience at Pomme Frite. The restaurant was just having a bad night.

    We have been dining at Pomme Frite every time we visit PS: at least twice a year for the last fifteen years. It is the most consistent restaurant in terms of quality food reasonably priced. This visit we met an old friend, Wili, the maitre d, which made for an even more enjoyable experience. We love this place!

    One of my absolute favorite restaurants in Palm Springs. Consistently excellent authentic food,. Interesting cocktails and great wine. The service is amazing everytime we go. It is very quaint, you really do feel like you are at a restaurant in France or Belgium. It has both indoor or outdoor seating available. Highly recommend!

    Great little restaurant right on Palm Drive, Downtown Palm Springs, the food was very good, the staff was helpful and knowledgeable. Tasty Escargot, the Mussels will have us coming back again. Large beer and wine selection, with the staff assisting you with advice if you have questions. Our new favorite PS destination.

    The food quality continues to impress. The beer menu is so extensive that as a person who does not like beer I actually find something to enjoy for a change. They do have a full bar and fantastic mixed drinks. The option to try something different always catches my eye. The food is of the highest quality and the plating is perfection.

    Your location Pomme Frite It is the first night of restaurant week so we decided to try Pomme Frite. We arrived for our 7:15 reservation and were seated. My husband is allergic to most of the entrée offerings on the fixe prix menu so he decided to order from the regular menu. I was going to make my selection from the RW Fixe Prix menu. When the waiter came to take our order we were informed that we both had to order from the same menu....so I changed my order. I had the frog legs and the short ribs. My husband had the goat cheese log and the beef stroganoff. Things started off well enough. We started with some frites for the table. Willie our waiter was very nice and attentive. The appetizers came out right away. The goat cheese log was delicious! My frog legs were tasty but, as you could expect with frog legs, not much there. We then proceeded to wait for an hour and fifteen minutes to get our entrées. Willie kept apologizing and explained they were short staffed in the kitchen. When the entrées finally arrived, my short ribs were amazing...not worth waiting over an hour for but delicious non the less. My husband felt the stroganoff was dry and when the owner came by the table and asked about our experience, we told him about our disappointment with the stroganoff and the time delay but I also complimented him on the short ribs. We initially felt like this would be our first and last visit to this restaurant but to our surprise they comped my husband's meal. I thought that was fair all things considered and so now we will probably give them another try...stay tuned

    For years we had been saying we should go to Pomme Frite while staying in Palm Springs. This year we finally did! We had one of the best meals ever. Our server, Willie, was a delight and offered some great suggestions. The food was excellent, from the wine to the French Onion Soup to the Surf and Turf to the Floating Island for dessert. I think we have a new favorite Palm Springs restaurant.

    The food was excellent and so was most of the service but our waiter didn’t seem in a very good mood when we sat down. He was rather short with us snd we had to ask for water several times. However when we were getting to the end if our meal he became a bit more friendly and pleasant.

    It is very expensive here and the food is good but very average. I asked the waitress to check with the bartender on which kinds of bourbon he has to make a Manhattan for me. She came back and his answer was Johnnie Walker black which is scotch. Lame bartender. I had a glass of wine instead. Dinner and two drinks for me alone was a whopping $68 bucks. Yikes! Probably not going back.

    First of all… the host couldn’t be rude or if you tried, Just obnoxious. That should’ve been our first clue to leave. But we didn’t… Once we sat down at our table, waited a good 20 minutes before anyone brought water or wanted to take an order. Of course we’re ready to place our food order as well as drink water since how much time has elapsed. We all knew what we wanted. The waitress insisted that she could only take her drink water at this time and that she’d be back for our food order. I understand you’re understaffed but, at least you should realize that patrons are helping you by not making you come back-and-forth several times. After another 20 minutes our waitress came back, of course I didn’t look like she was in the mood to be there, probably overworked and underpaid. I get it, no one wants to work into those conditions. The food was equally as boring and unimpressive as a restaurant had been to this point. My muscles in the white wine sauce taste it for like they were just boiled in the water, no flavor. The fillet mignon meals tasted like reconstituted meat, tough as nails even though it was cooked medium rare. Just bad quality meat, the french fries and everybody’s meal were cold, this entire meal was a fail. The only redeeming quality of the meal were the drinks. All of us ordered bottled beers and they were all delicious the cold. That’s all I can say about a great meal. I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this restaurant again. Good luck

    Not a friendly vibe from the start. After sitting, no one came by for about 10 minutes. After taking our order no one ever checked back with us and it took 45 minutes to be served. Stew was bland and my wife’s Seabass was a whole fish full of bones. Paid cash but change was not conducive for a tip and off by a few dollars.
