Terrible tasteless food eight very mediocre service.
Restaurant was closed when we arrived. No one in sight ! Disappointed
Super cute patio. DELICIOUS Italian food. Very casual but ok for a casual date night.
After not visiting for a couple of years I was disappointed. May have caught them at a shift change but had to wait 5 minutes to be seated. Food was warm, not hot and veal tough. Need to improve quality of food and service.
This is our favorite eating place in the desert. Food is always good, they make to best Gazpacho. I wish they had it on the menu more. The service is always good.
Lovely place to eat great food! Waitstaff were friendly but a little slow on the refills! We spent three hours enjoying ourselves and when asked, the folks didn’t want us to
Hurry off! I so appreciate that!
Always good food, friendly service and great atmosphere.
This restaurant is a gem. Food fabulous, prices great, service super. We will be back.
The lemon ricotta pancakes with raspberry butter is a MUST!
Backstreet always is a fun experience. The staff is always helpful and responsive. The noise was a a factor bur we all enjoyed our choices...I would recommend it to anyone.
Dinner with our daughter and partner .
We had never been to Backstreet Bistro before but we decided to give it a try. Coachella was going on there a lot of restaurants were booked. We were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were very good. We try it again.
Excellent service and delicious food.
Our first time here. After all these years. Well it didn’t disappoint.
Went for my birthday. I am gluten intolerant. Let me tell you they
prepared the calamari sautéed!! It was sublime. I want more.
I also had gluten free bolognase. Very good. Down the proverbial
hatch with a nice glass of wine and all was right.
Love siting outside on the patio - I had the Shrimp Salad and it was divine!
We were initially disappointed that our RESERVATION was NOT noted on their list, although we made the reservation through Open Table, and had a copy with us to confirm. Once seated, we had to ask two times for the bread basket, the second time was after the salads were served. Food is always excellent but with the spotty service that evening, it taints everything else.
Had had a good experience in this restaurant before but took friends from out of town and was quite embarrased. The food was extremely late because the server forgot to turn in our order. I give her credit she actually admitted to it. They then rushed our order through and the chicken dishes were way undercooked, actually not edible. The managers peace offering was to offer us free desert which we
didn't want and would also require to sit at the table even longer after we had been there for what seemed like an eternity. Overall a very bad dining experience.
Nice outdoor patio
We come to this restaurant quite often and have never been disappointed. The service is very good and the food has been well prepared and very tasty. I like the ambiance of the outdoor dining and have managed to dine outside every time even when a bit windy.
Good value menu and very pleasant patio dining. Excellent service, friendly staff
We enjoyed the food and the service. We did not know there would be a band playing which limited conversation. We loved being outside!
We really enjoyed our meal. The variety of chicken dishes was outstanding! The homemade bread was delicious! Prices were all very reasonable. so glad we made a reservation. it was very busy!
The computer system was down at this restaurant when we went. We were at the restaurant for two hours of my kids who are completely starving. The food was very good but the service was extremely poor because of the problems they were having with their computer.
Everything was good, but we had an outside table in the corner. Really didn’t spoil anything, just not very pretty. Meals all good
Great salads and their half sandwich with soup, fries or salad is a delicious lunch.
After watching everyone around us who arrived after us get their food we mentioned to the waitress that we had been waiting a long time. After she left our table the manager came by to see if we wanted a glass of wine while we waited. We assumed that was to comp us for the long wait. However the extra wine was on our bill at $11/glass. Never an apology for the long wait. We had stopped going to this restaurant a couple of years ago because of poor service and was giving it a second chance. Disappointed!
Excellent service and friendly place. Ate on the patio with good views of the mountains. Food was excellent and hot. My wife and I both had lunch the next day from her pasta meal, very large portion and delicious even cold the next day. I had a chicken dish that I would repeat gladly. We have been coming to the Coachella valley for 30 years for vacation and this was our first time at this restaurant. It will definitely be on the rotation in the future. A neighborhood gem for sure.
The food was exceptional and the ambiance in the early evening was lovely. There was live music the evening we were there. And thankfully it was not too loud for conversation.
Music was too loud on the patio.
It was a wonderful experience. We had a great meal and our service was excellent. We will always come back and eat at your restaurant.
Great food and service. The inside of the place is a bit noisy, but we had a great meal.
Our first time there and we loved it!
This was my third visit in the pass four months. If it wasn't good I would not return for three visits!!
The food is excellent. It has a very nice ambiance. They have a small kitchen so when it’s crowded, it’s slower but not bad.
The food is delicious, the service is attentive and atmosphere is casual - like your favorite neighborhood bistro.
One of the best patio’s in the desert. Great food and terrific service.
WE BOOKED OUR TABLE THROUGH OPENTABLE EARLIER IN THE WEEK ... BUT ON SATURDAY MARCH 16, WE RECEIVED A CANCELLATION NOTICE, IN THE AFTERNOON, THAT OUR RESERVATION WAS CANCELED!
I CALLED THE RESTAURANT IMMEDIATELY AND THEY SAID THEY STILL HAD OUR BOOKING FOR 5:45PM, SO WE ARRIVED, WERE SEATED, AND ENJOYED OUR DINNER!
Disappointed in the food. The seafood pasta dish had a lump of mushy salmon on top. Not good for an expensive dish. Very little seafood in it. Pasta was cooked ok. Won't go back.
Thanks to Open Table, we were able to be seated at this restaurant. The wait staff and hostesses were very accommodating. The food was good, but it took a hugely long time for it to be prepared. Overall a good experience.
We have been coming to this Bistro for many years and have always enjoyed the food, in fact we normally visit it twice during our stay. This year it was not as good and we were disappointed, we even asked the wait staff it is was under new ownership. The food was not what we have come to love.
