Convenient location with ample parking. Went for lunch on the patio, which was very pleasant. The waitress was friendly, efficient, and took good care of my friend with her special dietary needs. Great menu, but my choice of papaya / mango chicken salad was the best.....chicken moist, tender, flavorful. Looking forward to returning for dinner.

We had a great lunch in a beautiful setting. The restaurant is nicely decorated in a classical French style. The steak frites was delicious. This was prepared in the traditional style. The steak was prepared medium. The hanger steak came out with a nice red center. The thin fries were nicely seasoned with herbs and scallions. There was also a... More

Their trout was delish! Tomato bisque? Awesome! My friend had liver and onions. Very tender! The ambiance is great! A bit pricey but worth it!

For several years my husband and I dined at Au Pied de Cochon in Paris when we traveled to France. Our favorite salad at that restaurant was Frisee aux Lardons (curly endives, served with warm lardons and topped with a poached farm fresh egg). The salad dressing is a French style vinaigrette. The closest we have ever come to having... More

This is perhaps our favorite restaurant. The food is more country french than parisian. I can't say enough good things about lunch, dinner or happy hour. This restaurant is a must for everyone to try. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

We found this restaurant on Yelp. However, they had the address and directions totally wrong. We persisted and found them and had a lovely dinner. My wife and I shared the escargot appetizer - garlicky and flavorful served with their crusty French bread. She had the mussels with pommes frites for her entre while I had the cassoulet. Both were... More

Venue. Very clean, bright interior with an interesting, attractive, high ceilings. The courtyard looked appealing in the right weather. Service was excellent.

Both delicious. Then warm pear taste with salted... More

After years of passing this restaurant we decided to stop in for lunch today and what a wonderful experience it was! La Brasserie truly brings a taste of France to the desert. Having recently returned from a vacation in Paris we were pleased to see the menu filled with regional flavors and dishes. I had the French Onion soup (excellent!)... More

Mussels stacked up high, wallowing in a steamy little sea of garlic butter. Shoestring fries sprinkled with flakes of parmesan cheese. A nice chilled sauvignon blanc. Dry desert air and a shady patio. Attentive friendly service. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It wasn't just because of all of the above mentioned desirables in a dining experience----it...

We went there on 7/14/2014 - Bastille Day- and before on Father's Day 6/15/2014 with my sister and her husband. When I made reservations for 7/14/2014, the lady said "I remember you, will it be again for 4 people" and I told her that my sister returned to Germany. I was amazed of her memory. Everything was outstanding, the food,... More
