I ordered steak & Eggs and when the waiter cleared the table the entire steak was still on my plate now that’s the point where he should’ve asked did I not like it because it was tough for shoe leather but he didn’t mask he just took it away charge me for and I tipped on 20% I’ve been there five or six times before this breakfast but I don’t know that I go back it was really disappointing

Amazing service, excellent food, beautiful ambiance. We celebrated my Mom’s 80th… and it was fabulous. Everything we ordered was perfection from the French 75 cocktails to the Beet salad, lobster ravioli, French Onion soup, Mussels , right down to the Chocolate Mousse. Highly recommended!

Really delicious French cuisine without the fuss and the fanfare. It’s in a strip mall, next to a foot store. We sat outside in the walkway area, so not much for ambiance but preferred it over indoor seating given covid. Everything we had was very good. Although my husband ordered his steak medium rare and it arrived closer to medium well. It was still very tender—server forgot to bring a steak knife but he was able to cut it with a butter knife. Server also forgot to bring the beer he ordered. Overall high marks, deducted a bit for some of the service gaps. It’s not the most expensive French place but it certainly wasn’t cheap either so I expected more from the service. We would return though!

Second visit here and had to order the same entree: Vol-au-vent aux fruit de mer! Seafood in puff pastry. It is fabulous. Full side salad of mixed greens with radish and fennel was light and refreshing and only $4! Profiteroles with gelato are a must. We will be back!

As always, the food was wonderful. We had a croque monsieur , and a nicoise salad. Great staff and a relaxed atmosphere. It was very busy outside, but we chose to sit inside. We will be there with friends next week for dinner.
The owner always makes a point of visiting each table to see if you are satisfied.
A great place to enjoy the foods of France .

Our server Sena was fabulous.....attentive but not intrusive, friendly, informative. We brought two friends who were first timers, and she made a great first impression for the Rotisserie. Luis is the best.....gave us a complimentary glass of pink bubbly. This place is still our 'go to' for date night! Love everything about it....food, service, warmth! We feel like family there.

Totally pleased. Server was friendly, helpful. efficient and well informed. The food was excellenrly prepared, high quality and delicious. Had the escargot to begin, and then the half Rotisserie Chicken. It was served in what I call Sunday chicken dinner style with pomme puree, gravy and roasted carrots. I am not a carrot fan but there were none left on my plate when it was removed from the table. If it were not for the mountain of whipped cream on the top of the chocolate mousse that I had spied I might have risked a heart attack and had that but the waitress steered toward the apple tart and I was not disappointed.
I had a pleasant chat with the owner before I left and all in all it was an excellent dining experience.
I do have one complaint though - in nearly 60yrs of enjoying escargot I have never had shells that were so difficult to remove the escargot from and I was not prepared to leave a single morsel. I am afraid my efforts were not good for the linen tablecloth - my apologies.

We truly enjoyed our lunch at the French Rotisserie Cafe. Fabienne and Luis were the perfect hosts. We visited the Palm Desert location for the first (but not the last!) time for a weekday lunch. The ambiance was delightfully French and intimate. The food and wine were delicious. The servers were very professional and courteous. We've booked a Friday dinner for 4 of us and look forward to it.

It was strange but we hung in there about 1hr+. I’m pretty sure the food is phenomenal though. They never served us. We got the bread and water for the 1st hour. Nothing else. I’m not sure what happened but we were the only Black Americans there who just so happens to be mixed with Haitian with French roots, of course. It was disappointing because were looking forward to the food. We love French food because it’s in our roots. They said they were understaffed. We said the kids were getting restless. We all could be wrong. We all could be right or one of us could be wrong. If you’re dark skinned go check it out and tell us what you think. See if I’m lying.

We are so sorry about the mix-up yesterday. We were understaffed because two out of 4 servers called-in sick. We did take your food and drink order but only brought your appetizer before you decided to leave. We understand that with two small children having to wait so long for the food would be extremely inconvenient. We are so sorry that you decided to leave but understand that the circumstances were not optimum and that we should have done a better job at taking care of your table sooner. If you happen to be in the area again we would love to make it up to you and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
