“One of the best restaurants we have visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We went there on Friday night and was greeted by a friendly hostess. We had a great meal with good service. We feel this is one of the best restaurants we went to on our trip. We would definitely go back if ever in the area again.

“BEST filet EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

For a small town I wasn't expecting much. Service was nice, atmosphere was good, menu options were decent, the cream of mushroom soup....to die for. The filet mignon, although a little pricey (considering you can buy a 2.5 acre chunk of land here for under $10k) was truly EXCELLENT. Cooked to perfection, thick cut, very flavourful (for a filet) and tender, tender, tender! (Later in the week I was craving this tenderloin again and I went to a fancy Italian restaurant in Indio and the filet was a thin piece of overcooked rubber covered in an oily sauce....booooo hissss.)
If you like beef tenderloin...you GOTTA eat here!! Bistro 29. Bravo.
P.S. I want your mushroom soup recipe!

“Excellent beef dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Large portions. We had enough for lunch the next day. The beef stroganoff was made with filet mignon which was very tender. Unfortunately the only pasta options were penne or linguine and I prefer stroganoff with flat wide noodles. Still, the dish was very good. The hanger steak was also cooked just right and came with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The wine list was just okay. I have to agree with the person who said that this restaurant wouldn't get such high ratings if it were in a major metro area instead of Twentyninepalms. All in all though, certainly very respectable food.

“Great Filet Mignon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Absolutely the best Filet Mignon that we have had in over 30 years. I don't care how much it costs, when I order a Filet, I expect it to be tender and flavorful. This filled the bill and was cooked to perfection. The service was perfect; the atmosphere was great. Highly recommend.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

A great find. The creme brulee was excellent and compared very favourably with ones we have enjoyed in Paris, France. Service was quite good, and we were given a dirty glass (changed immediately). The food is to be recommended.
