Food and service consistently good. Dining on the patio is lovely and if you are there for lunch, the cobb salad is a must... the best ever!

We have been driving by this place for years and never stopped in. I can not understand why no one has recommended this place to us. I think they want to keep it a secret. We were met by Casey as we entered and were immediately seated. Our waiter was fast, courteous, and explained the menu very well. I had... More

Went to dinner there and found it exceptional. A very traditional French menu, great wine list and a wonderful atmosphere. Prices were actually reasonable as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Located in a rather busy strip mall, La Brasserie is an energetic, neighbourhood restaurant. The menu is traditional french bistro style and the food is consistently well prepared. The wine list is varied and well priced. Service is professional though can be a tad slow when the restaurant is busy. There is a beautiful outdoor patio where you can dine... More

Not very good food with the pretentious belief of it being French like the take-out Chinese food of the spare ribs kind. Sadly, the only sure bets in this area are steak houses.

Casual French Bistro with nice atmosphere and patio with fountain. Service is excellent. Food is just ok to average, serving classic bistro food. There are better casual French places to dine in the Desert.

Made a reservation for the patio . Seating was delayed for 20 minutes. Service was extremely slow and the entrees took over 30 minutes to be delivered . I ordered the Steak Frittes which was undercooked and bloody on the plate. Overall pretty disappointing food and service. We were the last to leave the restaurant due to the delayed service.
