Let me begin with a praise of the highest kind. This restaurant is truly one of a kind classic French restaurant hidden by not being on Main street. What wonderful food we had and enjoyed. I highly recommend 71 Palm for anyone who really enjoys excellent food and wants something more for their culinary adventures.

Our go-to Ventura restaurant when I want a quality meal and a friendly chat with the owner Didier. On a sunny, warm January day we sat on the front porch and indulged in magnificent baked mac and cheese with rich creamy cheeses in a very large portion even though it is listed on the menu as a side dish. I... More

My wife and I had two stunning salad lunches - best we've had in ages. Excellent service, just the perfect place to chill-out following a busy time in the city center close by.

One of my favorite Ventura restaurants. The friendly owner is like a family friend because we have been eating here for years. We love sitting on their porch, but there are nice tables under the local art in the lovely craftsman style home built in 1910. I am addicted to their mac and cheese with a blending of French cheeses,... More

I had an amazing dinner. Very French flare no doubt. The service was excellent. The highlight of my meal was the dessert. I had the floating island. Wow super good. If you want some great French food this is the spot.

Right off the very popular California/Main St area of Ventura, but just enough out of the way. A favorite of locals. Very good service, great French Onion Soup, good wine list and reasonable prices. We went there for a party and will definitely return. As always, ask for the daily specials.

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.
