The food was overpriced for average food. I got two meatballs for 25 dollars. Not the best. The service and the ambiance was cool. I feel the ratings for this place was higher and swayed me into going to this place.

Pomme Frite always does a great job. Their menu is refreshing, and the selection of Belgian beers is unsurpassed in the region. We eat here as often as we can, always trying to sit outdoors.

We always enjoy coming to Pomme Frite for special occasions and just for fun nights out. The service is always excellent and the food is wonderful. We recommend the duck pate' with charcuterie platter and the coq au vin. The Belgian dark chocolate mousse was great! We have patronized this restaurant many times and we are never disappointed. Highly recommended!

I was lucky enough to be in Palm Springs for restaurant Week. My dining experience at Pomme Frite was the best by far. Excellent value, excellent food, excellent ambiance, and excellent service. The food was fresh, authentic, and classic Belgium/French. My favorites were the mussels and fries, although the steak wasn't bad either! Highly recommended.

This was our first tie at Pomme Frite and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was authentic Belgian cuisine and very well prepared. The special "Restaurant Week" menu was a good value and gave us an idea of what the kitchen can do. We will certainly visit this spot again in the near future. Great Belgian beer selection!

The service was extremely slow. We were seated fo about 30 minutes before our drinks or water was served. They seemed short handed on staff, but the owner was the host and should have assisted , at least with water. He was not otherwise occupied. That being said, the entire meal was outstanding, from the appetizer of beets Napoleon, to the dessert of crepes Suzette.

We made a reservation, arrived a bit early and weren’t seated for 45 minutes. After our seating, we were then promptly ignored by the waitstaff. After complaining, we ordered and received our appetizers a full 100 minutes following our reservation. Following that, I had to go to the kitchen to ask about the status of our order. We received our order 40 minutes following delivery the appetizers. Our server made only slight apologies. Although the food was delicious, the poor customer service made this experience truly unpleasant. My friends and I will not return to this establishment.

Amazing experience! I am originally from Belgium and the food tastes like at home. We had the classic white wine mussels, les boulettes à la liégeoise (beef meatballs) and, the chicken vol au vent. We will be back to taste different things. The patio was , the owner (whom comes from the same area in Belgium) was very welcoming and the bartender was very nice and helpful ! Highly recommend!

We eat here frequently because the food and service are reliably good and a good value. As regulars we are treated especially well and we appreciate it. There is a good variety on the menu and many dishes you won't find elsewhere in the desert including an excellent beef tartare and great chocolate mousse.
