Food was excellent. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is the service. They tend to seat everyone is one section, then when that fills up, they start another. It gets very noisy in the one section and if they would spread diners out among the other seating, it would not be as noisy. Also, they had... More

Dinner last night with group of 12. Beautiful quiet restaurant in LaQuinta. Interesting Bar selection. Escargot was served very nice, French Onion soup ordered by almost everyone, no one disappointed. Pork Chop, Mussels and Steak were well done. Service was great.

This French restaurant is the best in the desert. Never have I been disappointed with anything I have ordered. The pork chop is huge and tasty and I enjoy the steak frite. Everything is delicious!! And save room for dessert; they are also delicious.

This restaurant is in a shopping area and hard to find. It offers only indoor dining. The service was good and the food only just above average and quite passable but definitely not memorable.

Stayed close by so ate here twice, once for the bar snacks and once in the restaurant. The first night hubby had the Mussels Mariniere and I had the Charcuterie and Artisanal Cheese Platter, we shared their famous Truffle Fries and all were delicious. We were so impressed we returned for another evening and we both started with their French... More

La Brasserie is my favorite restaurant for special occasions (like our anniversary or birthdays), or for a sit-down lunch that's not fast food. The menu is chocked full of delicious offerings, but my favorites are the French onion soup (superb) and the Steak Tartare, which are appetizers, but sufficient for lunch or a light dinner meal. The restaurant's French fries... More

A great location. A quiet patio with great service and food. They offered bread and butter between your meal to hold you over until your meal came. Excellent wine selection.

La Brasserie is an absolute jewel...the food is delicious, a wonderful menu. The pear tart with salted caramel ice cream is not to be missed when having dessert. Have not been disappointed by any of the items we have ordered on any occasion, and we are pretty frequent diners. The ambience is so nice, quiet and inviting. One of the... More

The five of use went here for their happy hour to try it out based on the reviews I/we had read. First the waitress-she never cracked a smile, never made a suggestion, basically brought our food, the appetizers which weren't great and left. The person who brought our water should have been the waiter. One person in our group asked... More
