“Belgian delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

This small restaurant is a delight to visit. It is much like a small bistro with an ambiance that announces that it all about the food and not a deluxe interior. The chef owner Philippe Caupain is always present and will attempt to meet any reasonable request that is not on the menu. The prices are very reasonable and good value for the money.

“a small but really good "bistro"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

This location in Rancho Mirage has had a number of failed attempts at having a successful restaurant, Si Bon has figured it out--the food is Belgian, it'll mostly be familiar tho--and quite good--moderately priced, if you want to have just a really good dinner in a pleasant environment, you'll go try this, and then you'll back again! Not fancy, its a clean, nicely done, little neighborhood bistro with great food!

“A popular, inexpensive "bistro" in Rancho Mirage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

Open less than 2 years this has become one of our favorites. Belgian-born chef with years of experience has an eclectic, European style menu. It's always been busy at the usual dining times but at later time it's much easier and more quiet. Quality ingredients and limited but good menu, with specials. I've enjoyed the sand dabs, halibut, sea bass, wienerschnitzel, fried chicken, and any of the sides, especially the French fries. Burgers are good. Wines very reasonable and 1 or 2 nights a week they are 1/2 priced. It's not fancy and more like a neighborhood bistro.
Desserts are very good.

“Poor service but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

We were 20 minutes seated before our wait staff came by and she immediately explained they were understaffed. You need reservations so they should have been properly staffed. Food was really good as was the price for what you got. We'll try again to see if service has improved.
