Excellent dinner we shared with clients. Service was amazing and you can't beat the ambiance outside under the lit trees.

I was with a party of 4 for brunch and everyone really enjoyed it. We all ordered fairly differently, so there were a number of different dishes that showed up and all were excellent. The service was great too! We brought a well behaved infant with us and the servers loved him and made sure he was having a good... More

We spent a wonderful evening here. It reminds me of Tavern on the Green in New York The wait staff was EXCELLENT. the food was great. There are it many vegetarian or vegan options but the waitstaff will help you find something amazing!! It is expensive but worth every penny.

We had a great meal at Le Vallauris. I had one of the tasting menus and my companion ordered from the day's specials posted on the board. Considering the wide range of menu options, it was remarkable how Le Vallauris was able to maintain quality across the menu. The small mise en bouche were particularly memorable. The duck foie gras... More

Daniel S. is right. Young people should feel welcomed at this venerable Palm Springs institution. The food is always just a bit off the mark, but it's good enough. The setting makes up for any gustatory shortcomings. If you've eaten there, you know what I mean. If you haven't, picture a movie set with you as an extra - all... More

Le Vallauris has been one of Palm Springs' most highly-rated restaurants for years, and based on my one visit in May 2016, I must say very deservedly so. Unpretentious in appearance from the outside, it is lovely on the inside, with dining rooms of understated elegance, and an enchanting open-air patio. We were greeted warmly, seated promptly, and served with... More

We were seated well, under a tree and the lights. We were visited twice, once by the owner ( I think) and once by the manager- both charming. Our waiter was very good- I got into it a bit with the sommelier but we patched it up ( I was a bit put off by the 200 to 300 percent... More

We have dined for many years at Le Vallauris. It is a very special place and dining under the trees and lights makes you feel like you are in Europe. Lane was our waiter and he was outstanding. The food was exceptional which included oysters, lobster ravioli and rack of lamb. All prepared perfectly.

To begin: Four stars because the value isn't quite there and some menu items were slightly off the mark, but broadly a solid French restaurant, panache included. Why I was disappointed: My girlfriend and I were on Spring Break in Palm Springs. I decided to surprise her for dinner at Le Vallauris. We are young, and we are keenly aware... More
