We’d heard good things and were not disappointed! Delicious food, well-prepared with quality ingredients. A varied menu with French and Belgian specialties. Service was excellent. Everyone in our party loved their meals, and even though I didn’t really have room, the macadamia nut tart was to die for!
Highly recommend!

Wonderful little French restaurant in the Albertsons shopping center in Palm Desert. Went for Brunch and had a reservation for 12:30. We were seated promptly but the place was packed with early diners. By 1:00 we had ordered and it started to clear out. They have several menus. Two of us had different versions of the Benedict, we shared, and both were excellent. They are served on thin waffles or bioche. The 3rd person had the Quiche Lorraine which we all tasted and it was excellent. Have been here for breakfast during the week and it is also excellent. They also have a full bar. We have recommended it to friends who also enjoyed it.

My husband and I with our family frequently dine at Si Bon. We like the fact that it is more like a neighborhood place to eat at. The wait staff has always been very accommodating even when you get something that you ordered but you are not happy with it. With a smile they either do it over or get you something else.

Wonderful food (especially sand dabs) and delightful service. We had heard that their fish and chips were the best in the Valley so one of the people in our dinner party attempted to order this but found out that this was a lunch entree. No matter, our waitress asked the kitchen if they could accommodate our request, and THEY DID! (They WERE great!). How is THAT for outstanding service?!

My first time there. I took two friends to dinner- his 88th birthday and notified the restaurant ahead asking if there was anything like a cake or cupcake that we could do after dinner to celebrate. The service was horrible- we weren't even offered a refill of water. My plate was under the warming lights so long that it was fire hot(the waiter warned me and he wasn't kidding) and the chicken was so dried out I could barely choke it down. Not wanting to embarrass my guests I didn't say much of anything and it took a good while to get the check- minus not only any sort of acknowledgement of a birthday but of an offer of desert. It's not like the place was packed or overly busy at all. Basically what went unsaid in our group was that we just couldn't wait to get out of there and I can assure the management that neither they nor I will ever return again. A terrible waste of a special evening and money for less than ordinary food. My recommendation is to stay away- there are many other fine restaurants in the area that would be far better and would welcome you to their establishment.

Mark, I am horrified that you had this experience in our Bistro! Especially when you brought your friends in for the special 88th Birthday Event. I know that I cannot go back and re-do that night, however, this is so unusual for us and I hope that you can find it in your hearts to come back and give us one more chance. When you come back, please ask for me directly. Once again, I apologize that we could not have made this special night a spectacular event for your and your friend. Sylvie

Nice Belgian cooking. One specialty are the mussels served several ways, but mariniere was excellent. The mussels were plump, cooked to perfection and came with a tasty broth. The escargot were also excellent, served on a crisp belgian waffle to soak up the butter/garlic goodness. Service was efficient, warm and friendly. Another fine go to place in the desert. We want to come back for their breakfast too.

I enjoy the mussels meuniere as much as anybdis in the CV provided I ask the waiter to make sure there is no extra salt added to the broth. Tonight I forgot to ask to limit the sodium. Had to rush home for a. blood pressure pill.

Si Bon for breakfast? A resounding YES! Those Belgian waffles are the BEST. Si Bon for lunch and dinner? Not so much anymore. Yesterday's lunch -- Quiche Lorraine -- was "meh." Not bad, but not great either. Gigantic portions, though -- about the size of 1/4 dinner plate. Too much! Service was fast but perfunctory and certainly not friendly. Bottom line: I'll continue to go to Si Bon for breakfast whenever I can. But for lunch and dinner, I'm not sure. The last three or four experiences have been disappointing.

I brought a guest to Si Bon and it was very annoying because there were so many flies all over us. It was hard to enjoy our meal and quite frankly I ended up losing my appetite because I was so distracted. My guest took her meal home and when she opened it up to eat it there was a fly in her veggies.

Was surprised that they offered a $10 breakfast special that included an OJ shooter, 1/2 waffle, scrambled eggs, bacon or chicken sausage & fruit cup. Misters to keep you cool in the heat.Charming hostess that spoke French if you did. All in all, a cute little place for a pseudo French flavor breakfast.

The dinner was amazing. Thank you Si Bon for helping me enjoy my birthday! We are now planning a get together with a group of our friends to enjoy their Summer Specials.

We love Si Bon and dine here regularly! It is perfect for celebrating special occasions, business meals or relaxing with friends and family. The restaurant is nicely decorated, the service is welcoming and friendly. The menu choices are wonderful. We had the crispy chicken sandwich in a Belgian waffle with a mixed greens salad and the Caesar Salad with grilled chicken. Both selections were excellent! We recommend this nice neighborhood restaurant. I recommend it all the time and everyone loves Si Bon! Arturo takes good care of us!

Si Bon is a very popular establishment, and it's easy to see why. We were promptly greeted and seated (in a section of our choice), and in the very competitive hospitality environment of the Coachella Valley, the restaurant certainly "held its own." The ingredients seemed to be high quality, and the service seemed genuinely warm. We enjoyed our time there.
