We were in town for a few days and went back the 3rd Corner as we visited last year as well. The wine shop has good prices for a resort area and only a $5 corkage fee as well as wines by the glass. The food was excellent, well prepared and well seasoned. I had lamb loin and my wife... More

In researching some restaurants to go to while on vacation in Palm Desert, I found The 3rd Corner Wine Shop and Bistro. What intrigued me was the ability to browse the wine shelves and purchase a wine to drink with a $5.00 corkage fee. We chose an Amarone. The menu is great, and we all enjoyed the food we ate....

We really enjoyed the food and wine concept here that allows you to browse their wine store and then select what you want to drink with dinner and have it uncorked for a small $5 fee. We also enjoyed the variety of dishes on the menu that are good takes on comfort food dishes such as the three types of... More

First impression: The material installed on the front door handle to protect from heat is worn out and nasty. Didnt even want to touch it. Second impression: Hostess is not dressed professionally, refered to my husband and I as "you guys" and doesnt have any menu's at the hostess stand even though she apparently should as we stood and waited...

Have never had a bad meal here and always enjoyed great service. One of my favorite spots. I love the kale salad and the flat breads. My friend gave the hamburger a high five. The wines are well priced and a great selection. I joined their wine club - free - and get a discount in the wine shop. Fun... More

Return visit to this restaurant which is within waling distance of our home. On Thanksgiving eve, very busy. Waitress was wonderful - from Paris - but very busy racing around, had to flag her down a couple times. Food above average as before. Incredible wine choices and set up. Dessert was a horror show. Ordered a three cheesecake sampler, one... More

The food we ordered was flavorful and used excellent ingredients. Had a yummy wedge salad that was a bit unique. The duck confit cassoulet was delish! I wouldn't rave about the chicken Milanese dish- I would have expected it to be pounded flatter. It was very good however. I loved the sauce that accompanied it though and requested a bit... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of friends, and it certainly lived up to our expectations, the wine store has a very good selection. You pick your wine and for an added $5 corkage it is served at your table. We ate on the patio and the ambience, service, and food were all excellent. We also bought a... More

We read about this restaurant in a magazine in our hotel and decided to try it out. The experience is a really different one. We were seated and Nathalie was our server.
