We actually wound up in Pomme Frite because everywhere else either looked cheesy or was packed. So glad we stopped in!

Dinner was delicious. App of tomatoes & blue cheese was fantastic. Chicken Vol au Vent was phenomenal, and the Surf & Turf off of the Specials Menu was fantastic!

The nice people at the table next to us even offered a famous pomme frite for each of us to try :)

We'll definitely be back when we're in town. This time we'll skip the app & leave room for dessert!

I would have given them an "excellent" rating, but the seating is so tight, we had no privacy, and even overheard a little bit too much from our neighboring tables :(

Always been our favorite, even when we saw Jean Claude barking at staff and guests because the food was good. Not this time. Service was excellent and A/C was working, but something was off in the kitchen. I asked if there had been a change in management or kitchen staff, but no. We first visited when it first opened and tho we got barked at but the food was great. Seasoning seemed to be absent from each course. I wanted to be told the regular chef was out that evening, but we won't go back. Such a shame.

We are very sorry you got disappointed this time when you visited Pomme Frite. Something else must have contributed to your bad experience because nothing changed in the kitchen, the staff has been the same and our recipes didn't change. Hopefully you'll give us another chance.

Excellent French Onion Soup! The best beer selection in the City, and very good food and service! Also like to sit on the patio and watch the slow parade of characters and Lady's walk by!

This must be one of my favorite restaurants on the planet. Perfectly executed Belgian/French staples mélange with a world-class beer list and friendly, knowledgable service to create the perfect meal. I may just have to move to Palm Springs to be closer to Pomme Frite. Seriously, it's that good!

We never go to Palm Springs without a stop at Pomme Frite at least one time...lunch or dinner. The service is excellent, the feeling is very European and the food is excellent. If you like beer, their selection of Belgian beers is phenomenal. But the highlight of every visit is their escargot. It is the best escargot we have had outside of France. Be sure to get plenty of the sliced baguette because you will want to slurp up every drop of the delicious butter/garlic sauce in which they're served. All the rest of the food is excellent as well...but our memories linger on the escargot.
