“Vive la France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Super friendly staff made a special meal for our daughter even though they don't have a children's menu. Old school french restaurant feeling - both food and ambiance. Great experience. Plus they have live music on busy nights.

“Too Good for Palm Springs?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

I am always amazed why some people don't like this restaurant. The wait staff in "penguin suits"? Prices? I think these people should stay on Palm Canyon two blocks away with all the other schlock. I realize that over the recent holidays, illness created shortages in staffing, but everyone is back. The Saturday evening we were there (on this occasion) there was a wedding to the rear, a private party in the bar, and both patio and interior dining areas were full...but service was attentive and prompt without delay by very knowledgeable staff. The prix fixe selections with wine were perfect. Yes, we go to The Little Door, too, but Le Vallauris is what will bring us back to Palm Springs.

“Deliciously Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

We have enjoyed dinning at Le Vallauris numerous times. When we decided to get married this was the obvious choice for the venue. As always the food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was beautiful. The service was impeccable. The management, bartenders and wait staff did everything possible to provide the highest level of service - they surpassed our expectations. The atmosphere is stunning. Due to the food, staff and restaurant, this was a remarkable experience – it could not have been any better. We look forward to returning often.

“One of Palm Springs finest.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

This old, famous Palm Springs restaurant continues to be in the area's top five. The owner is usually there overseeing the guests experience, usually stops at the table to say hello, and is clearly in charge. With both outside and inside dining areas, one can enjoy the weather unique to Palm Springs, yet eat "high on the hog". Though this is a "special occasion" type restaurant, you will always enjoy what ever the level of experience one seeks. The prices are high, but you get what you pay for.

“Old school French with a PhD.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

This long time Classic French restaurant in Palm Springs,Ca. Is everything we expected it to be. We try to eati in the best restaurants and we were not disappointed. From the super fresh oysters to the well prepared fish and exceptional service we could not have been happier. The expensive wine list was well chosen. I heartily recommend this place to anyone who wants a great meal with price as no object.
