It would have been nice if we’d been offered some other choice other than the broccolini - to be honest, even though it looked good, it was kind of bland. Everything else was superlative - two of us had the lobster tails, one had the ziti pasta dish with meat sauce and one of us had the tuna. Desert was good to and the wine was very fine. After dinner port was heavenly.

Wonderful option in Rancho Mirage for Mediterranean cuisine! Specific to Spain, not just average homogenized regional food. Diverse menu selection with tapas, which are so much fun to share. Beautiful, spacious atmosphere with fun art & pretty atrium. Not too noisy. We had a really great time & look forward to going back! 👍🏻

We had the Osso Bucco and the chicken Marsala both were delicious but you have to have the Bananas Foster Martini for dessert (if you drink alcohol) it was amazing ! If not they have wonderful desserts like homemade Tiramisu which is also delicious. Family owned and operated it is the best Italian restaurant in the desert! thank you Sarah and John for a wonderful evening .

We love dining at Si Bon for all of our momentous occasions and anytime we want to treat ourselves to a wonderful meal . This year we celebrated my 71st birthday,our 50th wedding anniversary and on Nov.23rd my husband Steve’s 72nd birthday!! The food is always consistently delicious and the staff is great … but our encounters with Sofie are what really keeps us coming back to Si Bon . Sofie is a warm lovely person .She is very knowledgeable of the menu and a valuable asset to your restaurant . Thank you for the opportunity to sing her praises. Sincerely, Joette & Steve Valsvig

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and especially appreciated not being rushed. A 12:30 reservation is the way to go in our opinion! We are hoping to make this an annual tradition as it sure beats cooking ( loved being given a Turkey meal takeaway) We came from San Diego for a couple of days… Thank You and Happy Holidays to all the staff ( they were terrific!)

Our server was Kenya, she was outstanding in service, menu knowledge and presentation, very impressive. Daniel also stopped by our table as well which was a treat as well. We both had the halibut which was prepared perfectly along with the crispy shrimp appetizer to share, really appreciated our experience.
