We enjoyed our meal here and found it to be excellent quality. Only reasons for less than 5 stars: the crunchy Brussel sprout side wasn't even slightly crunchy, and the dishes were all just a little too over decorated, making them less appealing. The cheese plate was great, but didn't need chopped chives sprinkled over everything making it look messy... More

Pre-dinner vodka & blood orange cocktail, mmmm.l I chose the NZ rack of lamb, my husband the calf liver, both cooked to perfection. Our server Tina was such a joy, I offered to share my bread pudding dessert with her - I rarely eat dessert, good choice, it was delicious - baileys custard wow. If you're in La Quinta you... More

Read some reviews, and booked. It was all we hoped it would be. Waitress (Tina) was superb, the food was top notch, as good as any French style restaurant we've visited in the USA. The lamb rack and the calves liver were perfect. A bottle of 'old-vine Zinfandel, completed the experience. First Class.

Food is yummy here. All presented with a French Flair. Mussels and steak frites are especially good. Great place for lunch with your girl friends or happy hour with another couple.

Old school French bistro which makes zero concession to it's California desert location. Four of us shared the steak tartare (large size) and a foie gros special as appetizers and that was plenty of food for four. I had the liver for my entree -- it was traditionally prepared and very good. The wine list is reasonably priced and we... More

We've eaten at the Brasserie 3 times in the last two months. The service is always friendly and prompt, without being "pushy". The food is great, with a good selection of different items. We've also taken some of our "foodie" friends in the past and they love it as well!

We went to the La Brasserie for lunch with our Son and his wife prior to attending Desert Trip and found a menu with many options, wonderful daily specials and service that was excellent. Our food came quickly and we were entertained by a fashion show from a neighboring business. Prices were higher than our normal lunch places but the... More

The best place we went to during "Desert Trip". The French onion soup was the real thing and the vegan Cobb salad was awesome and I'm not vegan, just watching my calories. I would eat that every single day! The only thing I found fault with was that he vichyssoise was a smidge bland. The walled courtyard was very pleasant... More

Food was excellent. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is the service. They tend to seat everyone is one section, then when that fills up, they start another. It gets very noisy in the one section and if they would spread diners out among the other seating, it would not be as noisy. Also, they had... More
