Excellent restaurant, well worthy of its reputation. Food was excellent, service extremely polished and well-honed.
What a fantastic restaurant. Unassuming on the outside opens up to a magical world inside. Having just returned from Paris, France I was "iffy" about going to a French restaurant. But I was so very glad we had the opportunity to enjoy this jewel. From the moment we pulled into the driveway and were greeted by the valet to the maitre-d, the owner noticing us and engaging in a snippet of conversation, the entire help staff, our servers, the appetizers, entree, dessert, wine, etc., etc., etc. Absolutely our new favorite restaurant that we will enjoy for any occasion (not just my birthday). On top of all that, there was nice, quiet music in the background that was sheer romance/perfection. Voila. Perfection!
I feel food used to be better, went in the 80 and it was very classy. Over the years it has slipped, men in shorts and flip flops even a dog!
always so awesome and we will count the days until they re-open after the summer!
Delightful service by Willy, gracious welcome offered by owner, Tony
This is probably one of my all time favorite restaurants. The waiters are all delightful, the food is delicious and the outdoor patio is spectacular. We go every time we visit Palm Springs.
We eat here whenever we are in the Palm Springs area. The food is, as it should, be the main attraction - superbly prepared French cuisine yet not pretentious. Sunday brunch though not cheap is excellent value for this quality of food, service and ambience - three courses with a good and regularly changing choice for all three courses and unlimited champagne. Professional yet friendly service. Beautiful outdoor dining area which is cool with tree shade and cooling fans even on the hottest days Palm Springs can offer.
Food, service ambiance on a gorgeous patio with trees and swamp coolers to keep you cool on a hot June day..... can’t be beat for Sunday brunch.
Warmly greeted on arrival. Nice table away from any traffic areas. cocktails arrived exactly as ordered. Extensive menu. Food is very good!
Outstanding and wonderful. Stefan was fantastic. Paul the owner said hello and so did most of the staff. Impeccable cuisine and service could not be better. The best restaurant experience we have ever had. Definitely will go back to Palm Springs and eat there again. It was old school style and feeling. The staff were like family and everyone was just incredibly gracious. Thank you to Stefan and all of the wonderful staff. The musicians were wonderful as well.
LaVallauris is our favorite Restaurant in the valley for special occasions. Paul and Omar always come by to say Hi. The food and preparation are superb.
The patio is fabulous and very cool even on the hottest days. The staff is VERY attentive, cordial, and professional. We give them a solid 10!!!!
Romantic ambiance, beautiful restaurant. Outside courtyard is beautifully decorated. Terrific food and service.
The outdoor seating is so magical! Very romantic. Great for special occasions. The rack of lamb was perfect. I had the grand marnier souffle for dessert. It's probably cooked the way it should be however I am use to eating it a bit cooked longer.
Best Restaurant in the desert ! The food and service is excellent - great people watching with many stars in attendance.. Love this place
What a wonderful evening! Food was really delicious. Ambience could not have been better. Intimate and friendly with a beautiful patio with remarkable trees. Magical. Service was terrific. And the owners are hands on stopping by all to greet and insure that every diner is delighted. It is a level of food and service that we don’t come across often. The area is lucky to have such a world class chef. No one rushes you. Great vibe and terrific music. Bravo for maintaining excellence in all areas for decades. A real oasis in the desert.
I took my wife for her birthday to this French restaurant based on stars and reviews.
I was absolutely thrilled with my choice. We recommend sitting on the patio underneath the trees. The temperature at night in the summer is absolutely perfect for Palm Springs.
The food is gourmet and the service impeccable and perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant established for decades. It is a true value and a true gem. I will go back !!
As 2 year residents of Palm Springs our visit to Le Vallauris was much over due. We are planning our next trip to Paris with friends and to celebrate came to your restaurant. My husband and I have been to Paris almost every year for a past 20 years. Once inside your lovely restaurant we could have easily imagined ourselves in one of our favorite restaurants in Paris. In most US restaurants people are constantly talking over each other and the restaurants are always load. Your establishment is wonderfully quiet and allow people to speak more intimately. This adds so much to the experience. Also the act of not being rushed to turn the table over is also evident. We truly felt the Parisian experience by enjoying much conversation prior to ordering dinner. Our waiter encouraged us to take our time. The food was amazing and creative. Lastly the ambiance was spectacular, warm, cozy, and relaxing. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more.
We will return again and again soon. Merci et à bientôt
I went for restaurant week. I thought this would be a way of giving the restaurant a chance.
The setting is great and the staff are attentive but not as attentive unless you are a regular there. Some patrons got a lot of attention and it appeared that they are known there. We, who are new could be your regulars too, just saying!
But then I probably would not be going back because the food was not up to the caliber on this level of a restaurant.
Fish was good, steak was fair, beet salad was ok, desserts were good.
Is good enough? not for this type of restaurant. You need to be very good and this did not hit the mark. disappointed and I would not rush to go there. I guess I will not be a regular there. And that blackboard with the food options did not work at all. Again not at a restaurant at this price level.
Restaurant week is a way of getting people to try expensive restaurants and what an opportunity. Too bad but others I tried were great. Good to take a chance because sometimes you really hit it right.
a fabulous evening with excellent service and incredible food. Will make this a regular!
Always excellent!! There's a reason they have been around so long.
We celebrated my husband’s birthday with an excellent dinner of Caesar Salad, Lobster Ravioli and Creme Brûlée. Our waiter was the best.
Le Vallauris has an excellent menu selection and we will definitely be back.
Favorite restaurant in Palm Springs!!! We were seated out in the courtyard (don't worry--you won't melt!) Our waiter, Manny, was very knowledgeable about each dish and helped make our dining experience one to remember. Portions were adequate. My souffle was the fluffiest I've ever eaten. It's Restaurant Week in Palm Springs, so this is an opportunity to try a new restaurant at a reasonable price. Can't wait to go back and try something new.
Delicious food in a lovely setting
Best food you'll ever have. The wine list and service are excellent! :) A must go
Impeccable service and beautiful ambiance. The food is well prepared and perfectly presented. But factoring in the price, it just isn't worth it for a return visit.
A wonderful evening. The fried oyster appetizer was a standout as was their vichyssoise. Impeccable service.
We had a fabulous dinner. The food was fantastic and the service was great. I would have given it an over all 5 stars except for a couple minor things. The trees outside in the courtyard continued to drop leaves and seeds on the table. It was messy when we arrived and continued through dinner. Also once the check was paid and we stayed and talked with each other for a bit - no water was offered or a refill on coffee. Service just stopped. but over all the restaurant courtyard is beautiful. It is quiet enough to hear each other. It is a very expensive restaurant but worth it for a special occasion.
Despite 100+ degrees, the patio was comfortably cooled. Service was unobtrusive and impeccable. The entire meal was delicious and presented nicely.. by far, the best restaurant in the Palm Springs area.
perfect representation for French food and service . excellent
We had Avery lovely meal here. It was restaurant week so they had a fixed three course menu. There were gluten free options which I always appreciate. The trio of seafood appetizer was to die for. And everyone else loves theirs as well. The brilliant wines Pinot noir was delicious but the burgundy was not worth the higher cost in our opinion. I told the sommelier up to $150 and he immediately recommended one for $210. The ambience was excellent. The service very attentive. Highly recommend you visit this restaurant.
Always a pleasure.
The most beautiful outdoor space in the desert accompanied by great food and service.
We have dined at Le Valauris twice in the past month. On both occasions, the food and service were excellent. Lots of menu choices - love their New England lobster poached in vanilla butter. Incredible wine list, particularly strong in red Bordeaux and white Burgundy, presided over by their master sommelier, Bruce. If you're a wine lover and can spare a fair amount of argent, this is the place for you.
We had a wonderful dinner- the food surpassed our expectations and the service was exceptional! We will definitely return!
It is the most civilized place on earth. Sunday brunch one of the best values in Palm Springs
Always dreamy. Can’t wait to return.
As always, amazing!
The food was delicious. It was a bit pricy and the patio was a bit loud and hot (even at 8 PM) but it was a meal to remember.
Maitre'd had trouble finding our reservation, requiring me to repeat name and time.
Table was in a high traffic area, with several people bumping into my chair.
We asked for another table but were told this one was "cooler".
Service was efficient but not genuinely friendly.
We definitely got the feeling of being processed.
Different people kept attending the table. Yes, food runners and busboys, but that's what the waiter is for.
