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.

It was the night of the Festival of Lights parade and very busy Our service was great and I love the food. It is one of my "go to" restaurants in Palm Springs-a very comfortable spot.

Superior service, as always, from our server, despite the fact that she was having to deal with a very difficult table next to us. She handled it all very well, while giving us excellent service. The food and atmosphere is always above par at this great little gem.

As per our first visit a couple of years back, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The bouillabaise was excellent, as were the 'frites' of course. Very pleasant service - love the casual bistro atmosphere.

Our party of two was seated quite promptly after our arrival. The interior of the dining room was very charming and quite relaxing. The wait staff was quite efficient and very attentive without hovering nor making us feel rushed. We opted for the prix fixe menu and the food was well presented with generous portions. This coming Thursday, December 5, 2019 is Pomme Frites’ 20th year of being in business and they are celebrating by rolling their prices back to 1999 prices. We will have to make one more visit there before we leave for home.

Tried Pomme Frite with friends. Found the menu very heavy on fish. I chose beef stew which was good, but too small. It came with French fries which I did not want. Would have preferred a bigger portion with more vegetables in it. My friend has mussels which were average.
Disappointing as I really wanted to find a good French/Belgium bistro.
On a positive note, I do not drink alcohol, but the other three people did. The manager allowed me to bring in a bottle of non-alcoholic wine with no charge. That was very thoughtful.

Great location "close to everything," yet just a few steps away from the zaniness that often defines Palm Springs. Clever "bistro" menu, with numerous authentic Belgian beers. Often stays open later than the rest of the close-too-early Palm Springs kitchens.

The place was quite noisy and the service just took a south turn when the food took too long and I got something else than what I had ordered. Not wanting to wait any longer, I didn't say anything and ate the fish and fries. The fish was a bit too cold and it reflected the time it took to make it to our table. I understand they were quite busy, but the amount of time should've been communicated.

Pomme Frite is never a disappointment! The French onion soup is one of favorites of anywhere I've been. The short ribs were delicious as were the salads we ordered. Wine is reasonably priced, so that is always an added bonus.

Excellent experience, from beginning to end. Fine, warm service. Delicious food, we had gazpacho, then the chicken vol au vent and Norwegian salmon bernaise. Perfectly prepared , we savored every bite. They presented us a trio of desserts for our anniversary, all wonderful and a thoughtful touch. Highly recommended!

From start to finish, our experience was five star. Even when our server was cut for the night, he came over to talk to us about the switch in servers. The mussels as a starter were top notch. I had the salmon bearnaise and my partner the top sirloin steak. Both were amazing. We finished off with the Grand Marnier creme brulee which was to die for. We will definitely be back when we visit Palm Springs next year.
