Went for lunch with a friend.The noise level was almost at the screaming level. Our table was rocky and we asked if they could fix it. Now they know that table is like that............. but I guess they want everyone who sits there to ask to have it attended to....or live with it....stupid!!! FIX IT! We moved to another table...

I have dined at this bistro 5 or 6 times in the last two years, most recently last night. I really want to like this place, but there are always little annoyances that hold it back. For example, we arrived about 5 minutes early for our dinner reservation and were told to wait by the front door " because we... More

We managed to get into the Brassiere for New Years Eve. I started with Vesper concocted by Justin (thanks‘) The pre fixed 5 course menu was perfect, beautifully cooked and presented.

I enjoyed my birthday dinner here while visiting the La Quinta/Palm Springs area. The food was fantastic. I wanted to try something different, as we do not have many French cuisine restaurants back home. Good selection of beverages. Met nice people while dining. Clean and nicely decorated. The food was prepared well and was tasty. Service was great. Would highly... More

Enjoyed our best dinner this trip at La Brasserie....can't wait to return! A charming (albeit noisy on a crowded night) bistro. A diverse menu featuring seasonal produce and classic French preparation...everything we had was excellent...soup, salad (unique but delicious take on Cesar) lamb chops, veal tenderloin & mussels w fries to die for! Waitress offered excellent wine suggestions! Not pretentious,... More

This was my first visit and it happened to be on New Years Eve. Who would have thought that a French restaurant in the desert could get it so right. From beginning to end every detail was superb. Hostess and server were both exceptional along with drinks and food that was beyond wonderful. Bar service was quick with a great... More

Dining on the patio for lunch is lovely. This is a great family owned place in La Quinta that I would highly recommend. Atmosphere, service and food all good. Only complaint is the wine list is a little average for a bistro, wish they had a few more interesting french wines to choose from.

If you like Modern French Food, then this is the place to go. None of those heavy cream sauces that plague French menus. The pork chop I had was one of the best I have EVER had. Jennifer our server, was wonderful. My wife's chicken was undercooked and then they killed the chicken after they reheated it. No kids menu... More

Unexpected French masterpiece. The food and service were incredible. Cooked to perfection and served with a smile. The deserts were also a step above. The Warm Pear Tart with salted carmel Ice Cream was an unusual combination, but I would highly recommend it.
