Beautiful view of Lake LaQuinta...lovely French decor indoors and outdoors. Lunch menu was fairly standard. We visited for Restaurant week which was a 3 course for $25. We ended up ordering the Caesar salad with shrimp and the ahi. Service was pleasant.

Had great expectations for this restaurant. Very disappointed. Wait staff lacking experience, food served warmish, not hot. Some dishes unpalatable. Cheesecake very dry not very good. Fairly good wine selection.
