We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened. We love the patio, but when the chilly temperatures send you inside, it can be difficult to hear your dining companions. Also, as repeat customers, we find the menu needs to change; it's been basically the same for years. This time we had the mussels and frites (good), the trout... More

We were in La Quinta overnight on a Thursday and chose this restaurant for dinner based on TripAdvisor reviews. If you're a foodie, the fois gras duck confit spinach salad is amazing. Don't order a full entree to follow though, unless you have a huge appetite. Another appetizer or soup is enough to satisfy the appetite. They have a moderately... More

Chef Emmanuel Janin operates a well run organization in a beautifully appointed atmosphere separated into 2 sections. The first section is located inside the building and the 2nd section is located on the patio. The patio is elegantly decorated with linens and tableware. I highly suggest that when making reservations you request seating on the patio. My wife ordered the... More

I had the roasted trout and my husband had the bouillabaisse. We ate out on the patio. The night was a little cool, but the heater kept us warm (in fact, I asked to have it turned down). The food was good and the services was courteous.

We were happy with our Happy Hour experience. One orders from the bar menu and all items including wine are $2.00 less. My husband had crispy calamari salad (a very generous serving) and duck confit tacos. I had the roasted beet salad and PEI mussels (very large and tender). All were enjoyed with wine, prepared perfectly and delicious. The service... More

We were moderately disappointed by our meal despite the friendly service. My Margarita was too sweet. The waiter consistently brought plates to the table and gave them to the wrong person. My fish special, the mahi-mahi special was dry and the bok choy accompaniment was bland and limp. My first course was a corn soup with popcorn in it which... More

When you're sitting on the patio at La Brasserie, it's hard to remember you're close to a busy intersection. The patio is a delightful haven with white lights and heaters that provide all the warmth you need on cool evenings. The food was delicious and the service top notch. A lovely place to celebrate a special occasion or just a... More
