Summer Special 3 course meal $29. Had the Smoked Salmon Caesar Salad which was excellent and a tasty caesar dressing. The main course I had the Steamed Mussels in Garlic Cream Sauce. The whole meal was excellent and the sauce was delicious. The mussels were tender and meaty along with a good quantity of mussels. They came with Pomme Frites which were excellent just the right amount of salt which went well with the mussels. Desert was Pistachio gelato. The entire meal was delicious and we can't wait to return.

Even though we know Si Bon is a Belgian style bistro, we came to celebrate 14 Juillet, the French national holiday - and hopefully a little pre-celebration of France winning the World Cup (which they did!) The service was wonderful, as usual, from the excellent bartender to the especially helpful wait staff. (we loved our waiter so much that I won't give his name, as we want to be sure to get one of his tables next time)
There was a special summer menu that some of us took advantage of, while others ordered the evening's special halibut and rack of lamb. Both were excellent. But my personal favorite was a special appetizer I hope they keep year round - moules au gratin. Basically mussels in they same parsley garlic butter that escargot would come in. And to make the evening even more festive, there just happened to be two separate tables of celebrities dining there that night.

Food is excellent and we love the seared scallop risotto as well as the 9-holer escargot waffle. The summer special menu pricing is just unbeatable ; awesome!

Enjoyed our dinner very much this past week. This was our first time dining at Si Bon, and we both ordered from the Summer Special Prix Fix Dining Menu. I had the cold cucumber soup, the filet & shrimp scampi, and the macadamia nut tart. All were delicious - although the Belgian fries that came with the entree were not as good as the rest of the food. My date had the Caesar salad, the chicken scallopini, and the mocha gelato - all of which were wonderful. The service was excellent, the ambiance was nice, and would definitely return here and recommend to others.

Fabulous......as always.
We were surprised to know that Si Bon is open year round now....rather than closing for the summer heat.
Always high on our list when we travel to Palm Desert.

I have been here several times and enjoyed the mussels. This time I ordered cold cucumber soup. It was in eatable. It was thick and lumpy. There was no seasoning and the chives were clumpy. The waitress was nice enough to take it off our bill. The mussels were over cooked and gushy. I will try the restaurant one more time, hopping that the cook just had a bad night

Escargots were crunchy instead of tender. Server returned them but i think the manager should have stopped by. Great mussels!

Highly recommend this beautiful place. The food is awesome and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. They are open during the summer and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We loved the decor as well. Beautiful paintings and a really cool bar. The menu is different from your usual fare and the food is outstanding. Go try it!

Excellent food, authentic Belgian cuisine.

It was limited offer of available times on Open Table but after arrival we found that many tables were available.
Despite the great food, service was so-so. Waiter was in rush, minimal contact, always left table not giving a chance to ask a question. she dropped a bill with the last meal and that's it.

Oh man....We ordered a lot of things and the best part was the desert.
This is a typical plaza restaurant with very low quality food.
Frogs legs: disgusting Literally grossed us out
Escargot: waffle was good, escargot were big and chewy and somehow flavorless
Brussels Sprout Salad: somehow cold and chewy, not what was expected.
Halibut: tough and flavorless
Steak frites: fries were not great, steak was not well flavored
Muscles & fries: THE WORST-- the plate of muscles was so giant I couldn't believe it...and then I tasted them. They were so fishy I could hardly stomach them.

Stop in for the gelatto, skip everything else.
