It happens. A Sunday night. Owner not in the restaurant. Just OK service, overcooked salmon for me and not-great pork chop for my significant other. If this were my first experience there, I would not go back. But I prefer to think it was just an off night.

We dined in the Bistro and started with a perfect Martini and the house Cab. We ordered starters of Mussels and pot roast. The portions were so generous we had another drink and skipped the entree! We were so pleased! Service was excellent, the atmosphere was great and the product terrific!!! The owner Bonnie stopped by to check on us... More

Cello's offers an intimate, comfortable somewhat formal dining opportunity, even in the Bistro. The Bistro offers a lighter dining experience, reasonable and delicious. Should you be in the Bistro between 5 and 6 you can also take advantage of Happy Hour pricing for drinks. The house Cab is highly recommended and at 4 dollars for a generous pour...what can I...

Perhaps this restaurant is a bit off the beaten path if you don't go through Cathedral City but it's busy, crowded and very good. The owners are there most nights and will ensure that you have a great dinner and a good time!

Lunch, Dinner and Catering. One stop shopping. Great charming Bistro with full bar and great happy hours. Have always had wonderful, beautifully presented food. The staff has always been very friendly and professional. A must try for your next trip to the desert.

This is a lovely restaurant located in a strip mall in Cathedral City about 4 miles from Palm Springs. We were on a weekend getaway to Palm Springs and a friend recommended we try this restaurant. Very charming and not too loud to interfere with conversation. The lemon martini is the house specialty and is great! The salmon was perfect.... More

The menu says that "we are a small bistro, when we are busy please be patient." They are correct. Trendy upscale atmosphere. The food was high quality as was the preparation. But service was absent, poorly timed or missing. No bus service, I don't remember how many times we asked for water, drinks etc. my food came out first. It... More
