Sad to say that The French Corner is no more, or at least not in its former location. The doors are locked and the property is up for sale.

Restaurant is still closed with a "for sale" sign. Too bad, it was a nice place with good food and choice wines. Had the best chocolate mousse ever. Will be missed in Borrego since it was so different for the desert.

My husband and I attempted to go to this restaurant for my birthday a while back only to find it closed with a for sale sign on it. It has remained closed and for sale to this day. Thought people should know.

We read good things about this surprising French-styled restaurant in the dessert with a soundtrack of well-known French singers. Boy were we disappointed. Our starters were a mediocre corn soup de jour, which helped us understand why our good friends in France used to tell...More

I suspect the owner isn't going to be thrilled that "food" and "dog" are the lead for this review, but this is our reality as travelers. Let's start with the food. We shared a dinner salad, the old family Belgian meatballs and a chicken dish...More

The French Corner is a unique little restaurant in my favorite desert town. We were greeted by a young Belgium waiter who guided my choice to a beef stew cooked in Belgium beer served with pomme frites. It was excellent, very tender and flavorful, a...More
