Dinner at Mitch's on El Paseo in Palm Desert was a treat. We went on a Friday night and it was buzzing with good energy, good people watching, interesting decor, excellent service, broad menu. We sat on the patio and the heat lamps made the cool desert night air warm.

Mitch's is on a trendy shopping street with lots of activity. It is a beautiful restaurant and well regarded by locals. We will definitely go back!

I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was superb. All four of us enjoyed our evening!

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

Took a customer to dinner here and food, service and atmosphere was all amazing. The sushi bar is great!

So good I went back with my wife for lunch the next day!

It will certainly be a place we visit when in town.

The grilled oysters are the best we have ever had!!

Can't wait for our next time in town.

“Fabulous location, wonderful menu”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Mitch's has a great patio with a view of the lawn. This is matched by an eclectic menu with all of the old favorites and lots of new choices. The jalpeno poppers were the best I have ever had. Wine prices are reasonable. There is a good variety of Sushi and Shashimi to choose from. Lots of seafood and a perfect setting.

“We love Mitch's!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Have heard mixed reviews, but it's a favorite of ours! Great patio, and a nice bar area. We go for sushi and drinks, so can't comment on anything else. Love the jalepeño popper roll - a must try!
