Chez Pierre Bistro is an authentic French Bistro, one everybody wishes they had in their neighborhood. Most of the dining is in the charming covered patio where the ambiance is intimate, friendly and always very professional. Prepared by Chef Pierre with the knowledge, passion and respect of the seasonal ingredients from the farmer’s market, the food is superb. The specials on the blackboard are impressive, unusual and follow the seasons. In winter you can find Chef Perre’s famous cassoulet to wild game; In the spring shad roe and soft shell crabs; and in the summer you can find paella, steak tartar, and pomme frites.

It’s no surprise that Chez Pierre has been voted The Best French Restaurant of the Desert for the past six years and has been rated “Dining Excellence” by Zagat and Gayot.

You may be tempted to sign up in Chef Pierre’s cooking classes every Monday followed by lunch.

Bon Appetit!

Wonderful wait staff! The food was very good but not exceptional. I had sandabs that I felt were slightly over breaded. My husband had veal special which he thought was just okay. The vegetables were excellent. This is a nice quiet place which is hard to come by anymore so it was great for meeting friends.

The food is excellent. Several French favorites not found in many Bistros (e.g., Frog Legs). We were having a late Valentine's Day dinner. I had the San Dabs which were delicious. My husband had the Hanger Steak which he thoroughly enjoyed. The restaurant is small and when filled, it can feel a little cramped and the noise level can be a bit high. otherwise it is a great dining spot.

Although the food was delicious, my biggest problem is that the place is very small and all the tables were just about "on top of each other". The ambiance could have been better if there was room for more intimate tables. But overall, great food.

We are Canadian visitors who enjoy dining out in the Valley. Chez Pierre is our number one. Friendly staff (special kudos to Edgar and Arturo and Francisco and Roxanne.) No loud background music. Excellent and changing menu. Real value for money.

$ mains. Capsule to overcooked and inedible. Fish overcooked and rubbery. Vegetables never arrived at table. Last year everything was great but Sunday’s meal failed to come close.

Our dining experience at Chez Pierre Bistro was absolutely outstanding. This little gem is a must whether visiting the desert, or if you are a full time resident. The cuisine is beyond delicious, service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is quaint. Can't wait to go back.

Cassoulet with a glass of Cote de Rhone was delicious. Service was impeccable. Restaurant was full but it's a pretty quiet clientele so you can have a conversation.

The onion and goat cheese tart was lovely; delicate puff pastry, caramelized onions and cheese. Escargot were also yummy. The cassoulet was more solid, as a casserole, not like a soup; delish. The wild boar and pasta was delectable. The boar was very mild in flavor, not gamey at all. Profiteroles for dessert were wonderful. Bread and pate as a starter were delightful. All in all, a delicious evening.

Our table enjoyed the calamari steak and veal piccata. Both were very good. The house liver pate and fresh bread were excellent, as usual.
Thank you!
