Servers were very knowledgeable about gluten free options on the menu. Carne Asada, Salmon Bowl and Poke Bowl were all delicious. Appetizers were fine. Be warned: the desserts are HUGE!

Kale (sp?) was attentive and professional. The plates were a little pricey for brunch but were delicious; surprising chile relleno presentation but great. The cinnamon roll basket was huge and we had to take it home. It was our first time at 849, we had been to Uptown Gastropub and enjoyed that too, and now look forward to Rolyfusion with the same owners.

The food experience was elevated beyond any we have found in Palm Desert. The preparation quality and sensitive use of complex ingredients was a delight with every bite From start to finish cocktails and desert included We come back each visit to the desert a few times a year and it’s always a joy to dine at Catalan.

A charming venue with excellent service and food. Great background music too. My only critique would be the oysters. Not as good as I would have hoped. My husband had the liver and caramelized onions and raved about them. I had the veal chop and it and all accompanying dishes were perfect. The Grand Mariner souffle was perfect.

Went for my 60th last night in Palm Desert. At first we were sat in the far back of the restaurant. I asked if we could move to the bar area seating. Fantastic table and my b-day is now getting better. Our cocktails arrived the flowing cold vapors of the dry ice Cosmopolitans and Lemon Drop. They leave the shaker which is so full it’s actually another round. When the salads arrived (split as we requested) they were very large, glad we shared one. Sea bass for 3 but I had the 8oz Filet. Mine was prepared to perfection. The chef made up a sauce to accompany the pan seared fish. Everyone was very happy with and the mashed potatoes, Brussel sprouts and the Mac n cheese. A birthday house specialty Butter cake and ice cream. Was then presented. Probably our best experience “Birthdate Dinner Out” in a long time. Thanks we will be coming back again and again.

Castelli's isn't just a restaurant, it's a "state of mind." Everyone is genuinely glad to greet you. The menu is designed to excite an epicure's palate. The ambiance is a little kitsch, charming old world in a time capsule. We always eat on the porch. It's a place I bring visitors...I know they will have a wonderful meal and a delightful dining experience. Charlie

Victor was very kind and great!

I have yet to come across ANY restaurant in this Valley who offers such a wide menu as Pomme Frite! They offer such a wide variety of dishes always but also have "specials" that are hard to find anywhere. There are seafood choices galore such as Sea Bass, huge selection of Mussels, frog legs, and too many to list here. I've gone backwards by putting the appetizers second but it's just a menu you cannot fathom unless you see it. Beef from steaks to short ribs. Look online for yourself. 3 course dinner specials are exceptional! I'm tired of writing about it, YOU check it out! Not to forget there outdoor dining when weather permits. Hidden gem mixed in with tourist spots. Pommel Frite must be experienced to understand what we are lucky to have!

We enjoyed our meals, and the service. White wine was not cold enough; but that is the only criticism. The location is not good. It is buried in the lot behind the restaurants on El Paseo. I used my directional in my car to find the place. It got me to the parking lot entrance. The address is on El Paseo; but it does not front El Paseo. Now that I've been there, it will be one of my regular choices because of the quality of the food and service. The menu is very extensive.
