Mother's Day at 71 PalmOrdered the fillet steak sandwich...yum!!! It was a great day in Ventura so we sat outside. Had loads of attention from our server. It was much quieter than inside. Would definitely recommend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDidier never fails: food, ambience!I love to sit down in the main dining room at 71 Palm which is the sitting room of the original Craftsman era home purchased and reno'd by Didier a few years ago. I feel like I'm visiting his French country restaurant. For Mother's Day 7 of us were welcomed and fed from a selection of specials designed to tempt and enjoy. Salads, wonderful starters, great wine, bread. Everyone in our group was having a wonderful time and you could tell that the entire restaurant was filled with happy people. A great place for dinner or lunch any time. (I ordered my favorite lunch menu: roasted beet salad with an Alsatian pizzette on the side.)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOh WOW!!What a wonderful old house.

The food is consistently very good, with generous portions. The service is great and the converted craftsman style house makes for a cool upscale yet casual environment.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe current special menu featuringThe current special menu featuring Alsatian food with sausages and imported beers was great! Love the craftsmen style house and decor. Very warm and appealing.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a special meeting withI had a special meeting with someone and chose 71 Palm as my bosses had taken me there previously to celebrate milestones. Very lovely place and the food is always wonderful -well done.
We did have a table inside, but since we needed privacy and quiet, we decided to sit out on the front porch area to dine. We were offered a table by the bar, but again, that would have been lacking. Sitting outside is a great way to dine and the heaters made it more comfortable.
I will be back again and the person I met told me he was not aware of 71 Palm, so he will be back also. Thank you.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
