Le Vallauris may very well be the finest dining that Palm Springs can muster, but, I am afraid, that's not saying much. Palm Springs is beautiful and wonderful in many ways; its restaurant scene is really not one of them. We had the dégustation, which was $93 per person. There was little to rave about. The duck fois gras crème... More

Thank you Mr."Berkley" for your review, yet we are sorry to read that you did not find a decent restaurant to eat at in Palm Springs. Foie gras served hot always comes with a sugary accompagnement, and deplore that you did not enjoy it. As to the lamb dish, we do not serve lamb chops but a roasted rack of... More

I have dined at L’Escoffier in Los Angeles (when it was at its prime). Also Le Meurice in Paris and Le Gavroche in London. The meal I had today at Le Vallauris in Palm Springs was the equal to any I have had at all of the above. No, I was not paid to write this review; I am writing... More

One of the top restaurants in Palm Springs. GREAT for special occasions, brunch or just a night cap at the bar. This is one of the most charming places to eat in Palm Springs.

This is our go-to brunch restaurant in Palm Springs. Very old school and enjoyable because you feel like you've been transported back to the Palm Springs of yesteryear. Unlimited

We were lucky to sit outside. Always specify that when booking. Super service, our dinner server was French and excellent. Menu was amazing. This place is a real treat. Old World Palm Springs tucked away in a residential area near the museum.

I will start by saying the food and menu here is very good, but overall the restaurant did not live up to the reviews. There were more "misses" than "hits". We were not greeted upon arrival, instead we were met with excuses as to why the requests made by my husband at booking could not be accommodated. He had dropped... More

Le Vallauris is definitely the best restaurant we've eaten in the U.S. since we arrived 5 days ago in California - the food, service and ambience were all better than our experience at Melisse, so called 2 Michelin stared restaurant in Santa Monica, pricey and nothing amazing. We had a table in the beautiful courtyard, and chose to have the... More
