From the outside, this is an unassuming small restaurant. Inside, one finds an excellent menu, pleasant service and well prepared entrees. The salad was exellent, the bread was outstanding with a nice balsamic vinegar/oil at the table. There was a decent wine list with reasonable prices by the glass. The pastas are subtle but flavorful.

The greens garnishing the crabacakes had their own dressing that made them perfect for the crab. Literally every thing we ordered was a work of art. The only bad... More

We had salad, steak and mashed potatoes. It was awesome. Sadly, we were too full for the sorbet. Everything was prepared very well and presented beautifully. There is an extensive wine list. The staff and chef were very accommodating about our food allergies. Nice atmosphere. Extra parking in the back.

We had a terrific meal here on our first night in Twentynine Palms. The restaurant has a comfortable atmosphere, the food was great and our server was friendly and inviting. If you're looking for a stylish night out in this very small desert town, you can't go wrong with Bistro Twentynine.

I actually didn't expect to get great food in 29 palms but I was wrong. They have some outstanding things on the menu including the soup and crab cakes. We took our leftovers for a lunch picnic the next day in Joshua Tree and the were just as good cold. Great place to eat with good service.

We had dinner here. seated promptly, comfortable place. wine recommended was very good. We started with the calamari appetizer(so so), entrees: burger($15) and penne chicken($18). both excellent. finished it off with bourbon bread pudding( wow). total bill:$92. In summary, we felt it was a great evening dining here and so it was a great value! would highly recommend

excellent cooking, we tried a Steak Mignon, which was the most tender one, cooked to the point. My wife ordered a light pasta dish, also above the average!

We were recommended this restaurant when on assignment to Twentynine Palms. The food was fantastic and we received fantastic portions and quality food for the money. It may seem a bit more pricy but worth it. Remember it is a bistro so it is a smaller, more personal menu.
