    We had another great experience at the Bistro. Our waiter Javier was great to us and we want to thank him for going out of his way to serve us and make our night enjoyable! The sushi appetizer was good as always, the Chilean Sea Bass (we had 3 portions) was pure perfection, and Javier made sure the bartender Sam prepared our drinks just how we like them. You just cannot beat the combination of the Bistro's food and excellent employees.

    Went there for the first time with my husband and I enjoyed every part of my experience. From the food to the service my waiter Justin provided. He was great and even recommended us the preferred meals and drinks others have enjoyed on their visit. I truly recommend trying out this restaurant if you’re in Coachella or staying at the resort.

    An amazing experience once again at the Bistro. For us, the customer service and the food are the stars. Our waiter Javier takes amazing care of us and goes above and beyond each time to make our experience the best. The Sea Bass is just to die for, and you really cant go wrong with anything there. We usually have sushi too and they have nightly specials that are very good. Presentation of the food is always top tier as well. What else can you ask for? We will be back soon!

    Service was great; from the hostess to the servers and even table bussers. The manager even stopped by during our first appetizer to ensure everything was up to our liking (at this point we only had a charcuterie, which is hard to mess up!). However, I would suggest amping up the plate a tad by adding a mustard and honey as well! Our second appetizer was fantastic, the pork belly. Chef’s kiss! Unfortunately, the entrees were quite underwhelming. Especially the bone-in-ribeye. Maybe we have high expectations when it comes to steaks, but there was barely a char and the steak was way over cooked. I was surprised our server nor a manager came around to ensure the steak was cooked to temperature. Pretty disappointing as we were looking forward to a great steak. We did like the restaurant setup and will probably go back to enjoy a cocktail and appetizer or two at the bar. The margarita here is amazing!

    Many elements contribute to a fine dining experience. One element for me is the location of the table. When presented with an undesirable table, I declined and the staff quickly located another table. After that I was able to enjoy the lovely steak and cocktail. Service was attentive but not intrusive.

    Service was excellent except the waiter forgot to tell us about the daily specials. It was my wives birthday and they sat us down and gave her a birthday card that the staff signed. After our meals they gave her a piece of cake... A+ on the birthday. Caeser salad was good. The Sea Bass my wife got was very good. I got the New York steak butterflied, not good. No seasoning and tough. I ate half and my huskies ate half. They loved it.

    This was our first time to The Bistro and we were very impressed. The staff is very welcoming, friendly and courteous. Our waiter was on top of the service during the whole meal. We started with a luxurious and silky lobster bisque and a generous salad. Our duck and filet were cooked perfectly. This is on our list of places to patronize again very soon!!
