The best chicken I’ve ever had!
Great restaurant. Food, and service are excellent. The staff is welcoming and friendly. One of our favorite places to eat.
Very superb. Loved going since they opened.
Fantastic! Excellent all the way around. We will return.
The new bar is a wonderful edition to this terrific place to eat. The Grand Cosmo is well, grand
Always a great meal and great service! And can't wait to go for a weekend breakfast.
This was a great dinner experience. The food was very good, the selection was interesting and the service was very good. The outside patio was nice although the view was not great, the whole experience was nice and we would go back.
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
This restaurant is a hidden gem!! The ambiance is amazing, the service is excellent (we had Jean-Luc, he's wonderful), and the food is the absolute best. We will definitely be coming back.
We love this restaurant. This is the last restaurant we went to when COVID hit last year, and we are happy to dine here, this time outside!
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!
Wonderful food and service! It was our first time dining here and the food really was excellent. And I love that they had a kids menu! We will definitely be back.
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!
Trying selfishly to keep this restaurant a secret. Best French food in California. A wonderful surprise. Wonderful owners and waitpersons. Full of ambiance. My new favorite treat.
The food was delicious and the service on point
We had a wonderful time. Service was attentive and professional. Food was delicious.
One of the finest restaurants in the valley, both in food and service. The ambiance is delightfully french bistro and welcoming.
First time diner at the Cafe. It was an excellent experience. Greetings at the entrance, comfortable outside table, many menu options.
Chose a well prepared Salmon entree and my wife enjoyed Chilean Sea Bass.
Good selection of wine and desserts .
Be back again soon.......
Wonderful! Can’t wait to go back! Attentive service, great food
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 .
Loved the food, the service, and ambiance so much, we came back for an incredible breakfast on Friday
Excellent @ attentive service - food & cocktails / wine = very good !
A great mesl with perfect ambiance. A definite keeper
Staff very professional
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.
This is one of the top restaurants in the Desert, the ambience, service
and cleanliness is excellent, and the food is outstanding. The Host and
Hostess, and indeed all the Staff are personable and friendly and
immediately make you welcome. We are Blessed with a choice of first
class Restaurants in the Valley, and the French Rotisserie Cafe is right
alongside the best of them!
Stay wonderful French cafe meal. We will definitely make this a regular spot.
Just got to Love their Chicken!
I had the scallops and my wife has the sea bass. Both were excellent. The service was good, the food was good, we will be coming here again any chance we have.
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.
Continues to be one of our favorites.
Truly wonderful French food. Senen server was knowledgeable and personable
Owner was so welcoming. Don’t be fooled by location
A real find
Cesar salad the best
Chicken. The measure of any fine French cooking was superb.
We will definitely become a regular
Excellent dining experience. Exceptional range of menu options, quality and presentation both get very high marks. Only downside if eating outside is view of parked cars but inside dining was really high quality finishes. Highly recommended.
Food was delicious. Beautiful ambiance and decor. Menu changes with new choices and they keep the popular favorites also. The owners are hands on and welcome everyone.
What a cute place and amazing food and service, my first time there and I will be back for sure!! Thank you.
Food was delicious and servers very friendly. The inside of the restaurant is very cute but we only eat outside now. I’m pleased the restaurant has outside but the area faces a parking lot.
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.
