My son and I had a fantastic dinner. The server was wonderful and meal was great. The Prawns and Rice were amazing as was the Ceasar Salad.

I had a heirloom tomato salad that was great but too much for a salad. Bouilibase was average. Apple tart just so so. With a glass of wine it cost me $72 plus tip. Overpriced. The restaurant is a craftsman home and it is pretty.

During a week when the chef offered a special dinner menu celebrating the birthday of Julia Child, we stopped in for a casual lunch. Had we not been in something of a rush, we would surely not have been disappointed by the fixed-price honorary meal. Our quick lunch was very good. Both food and service were fine. The old homestead... More

This was our first visit to 71 Palm, which was highly recommended by a family friend. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed an exceptional meal and very accommodating and attentive service. Moreover, the ambiance is great: we were able to enjoy a long rambling and leisurely dinner conversation without the loud and disturbing background noise that is increasingly common in... More

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.
