After eating American food for two weeks Le Vallauris is a very welcome break! Almost authentic French food in the desert! Le Vallauris would not earn a Michelin star in Europe but is still very good. the patees: very nice! The main entrees: we had roast of lamb and lobster, very tasty. The only setback is the way the wine... More

Been coming here for over twenty years, whenever we get to town. No desire to go anywhere else for a treat meal. I cannot remember ever having a disappointing meal here. The chalkboard menu changes regularly, so no point in making a specific item review, but just point your finger at any one, and you will not go wrong. Outstanding... More

Le Valluaris is in my opinion, the best restaurant in Palm Springs, for fine dining. I have eaten there many times in the past and had dinner to celebrate a birthday on the last night before they closed for a summer hiatus. The patio is a lovely place to enjoy a beautiful evening, but on what was a very hot... More

While the food was very good here, I was not impressed with the service. Our waiter was French and was trying to pull a Parisian attitude on us. The thing is, I've eaten at nice restaurants in Paris, and the waiters there DON'T pull an attitude -- they're polite and professional. Given that, I was disappointed in the overall experience,...

I'm in the process of relocating to Palm Springs and filling my quiver with restaurant ideas for the future. We ended stopping in to Le Vallauris the nite before they closed for the summer and had a magical evening. Service, food and beverages along with the romantic patio and period room make for a great experience on any occasion.

Great for a special occasion, fine French dining. The food here is consistant and always tasty. Friendly staff and owners. A great place to celebrate anything. The Caesar is a favorite here served in a parmesan crust bowl that you can eat along with the salad. I;ve always enjoyed the seafood entree's entress here.

The price fix menu was amazing! Service was impeccable and the patio was lovely, even in the summer heat as they have fans that move the air wonderfully. I'd highly recommend!
