I was in town for a conference and we came here for dinner with about 16 people. We had a reservation for the patio, which was lovely! Nice tea lights and atmosphere. They have a nice selection on the menu, but seem to specialize in seafood. We tried several appetizers on the menu - all were very good. I had the lobster tail dinner, which was very good. I would definitely recommend coming here!

Visited Mitch's twice when in Palm Springs in March. The sea food is very good, though pretty expensive. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Tuesdays wine is for half price; all recognize that, making an advance reservation a must.

My wife usually is hard to please, but she remembers this place from a year back, so it's got to be good.

The place is odd, sports bar up front, very dark patio in back and bizarre space in the middle. 70's music blaring all night. A very dated scene. If the food was good, I would have dealt with Neil Sedaka, but it was not good. Our very cocky server made it seem that everything on the menu was to die for. The tuna tartare was very bland, tasteless. We had to ask for soy sauce just to make it palatable. The salmon was just bad. We told our server but he did not offer to sub it out and still charged us. The beet salad was a lot of fill greens and canned sections of manderin oranges. Very few beets. Huge disappointment and expensive. Just to be clear, I am willing to pay the freight, but the food needs to be at least average. Don't get suckered in by your hotel concierge. You will regret it.

Three couples went to Mitch's for supper made a reservation felt a little upset because it was a very windy ugly day out and we got sat outside
kind of squished in the corner the wind had blown all kinds of stuff all over the table initially because felt like we were just stuck somewhere even though we had made a reservation
In the end we had a delightful waitress extremely helpful great service all the food was delicious
Had friends who returned and I had excellent selection of food and drinks again would recommend
