The Bistro is deserving of the good reviews. The food is well-prepared and the service both attentive and prompt. The ahi was perfectly cooked (just a bit of color around the outside but the interior warm and pink), the brisket burger was an inventive dish, the salads were crisp and flavorful, and the flat bread appetizer was really nice. Slightly more expensive than other dining options in town, but worth it.

Enjoyed the meal, although expected something a little more special, having read the reviews. The service was very/too quick for our liking - partners main course arrived straight after he had finished his appetizer, and while I wasonly half way through my appetizer. Didn't visit this restaurant for "fast food". Maybe because we live in France we expect a more leisurely pace!

Enjoyed a lovely dinner here while visiting Joshua Tree National Park. The salt and pepper calamari was crisp and tender. Perfectly seasoned. The spinach salad was a large serving, easily could be split and shared. The flatbread pizza was super fresh and filling. Could be a one-person entrée. The evening special – seared ahi on a bed of mixed greens with feta and pecans – was excellent. The fish was covered with herbs and seared to a crust on the outside, rare inside. Service was friendly and attentive. Overall, a super find in the desert.

This is probably the top place for food in Twenty Nine Palms. We called left a message about making reservations. We never heard back from them. The hostess said that she tried calling us. They were booked up. But she fit us in. She made sure that everything was right with us. She waited on us. She really felt terrible that she feed us, but she made an exception. Are we glad that she did. This is one place that I wish that I could give more than five circles. It was a superb place. You can not go wrong. Please make sure that you make reservations.

Parking in the back. Magadalena was a friendly, bubbly waitress. We enjoyed her waiting on us. The calamari appetizer was very good. The Lobster Ravioli delicious! The desserts are fantastic - Chocolate Pot de Crème & Bourbon Bread Puddning. If we had another day there we would probably go back.
