After reading about it here either being great or horrible I took the chance. Glad I did. Food was good service was good. There was only one other table in here while I was there maybe this is the reason but I'll be back.

My wife and I have been semi-regulars of 71 Palm for several years. Last night, my wife had a bad case of food poisoning from unsafe fish (Sole in this case). We are both pretty healthy people and are rarely ill. And I have not written a bad review - usually fair and balanced. This is my first. The onset... More

The chef here has s following, but I don't get it. The restaurant itself is located in a beautifully restored craftsman mansion, but the service is haphazard and theafgood uneven. There are far better options in twenty-first century Ventura.

In a lovely restored Craftsman bungalow, my food was excellent and so was the service. Even the restroom was great!

This is a restaurant with nice setting, good crew of waiters and overpriced food made with low quality ingredients. Take, for example, their "Tiger Prawns" made with diminutive shrimp, or Lila's salad made not with fresh mozzarella, but a so called "low moisture mozzarella" - the cheapest, mozzarella-like substitute, which has nothing to do with its real namesake. Kids are... More

They seated us and our dogs on the patio 15 mins before closing on a Saturday night. Always risky that service or food will be bad as a result. Our server was excellent. We had a delicious lobster ravioli appetizer -really great. Chicken ravioli with a similar decadent sauce was great as well as the salmon entree Very happy with... More

Im a local in this town and somehow managed to miss out on this little gem for the last decade! Had our Anniversary dinner here and it was amazing! Great ambiance, check out their website for photos. The rack of lamb and seabass crusted with horseradish we're fabulous! We started with oysters and champagne and ended with nutella crepes. I... More

I can't vouch for the rest of the menu, but I was quite happy with the escargot, some bread and a nice red wine. Service was excellent, a very friendly waitress.

We had a most pleasant Friday evening meal here! Convenient parking directly adjacent to the restaurant in the back. Decor very nice. We shared a salad which was fresh and good. I had a shrimp entree which was most savory. Our server was pleasant and helpful. Before we left the proprietor actually came out to greet us which we appreciated.... More

Just off of Main Street in Ventura, 71 Palm is like stepping into a French country restaurant. The menu has a wide selection and the wine list is a good mix of California and French. The Soupe à l’Oignon Gratinée was beautiful to look at and a taste treat. The Ruben sandwich special was juicy and very filling. They also... More
