About the restaurant
Canopy Wine Lounge is a driving source for wine & community no matter where your palate takes you. To curate this lounge, a partnership formed between longtime Palm Springs local Noah Mamet and the owner of our 15 unique winery properties around the globe. Our decor is a modern take on the popular design of the 1950's, using clean lines, pops of color, and various textured fabrics and fixtures.

To accent our wine bar, we have a custom-built clay amphora where our in-house winemaker will be fermenting and ageing a Californian rosé. Glowing fireplace features highlight our meticulously curated selection of desert plants. Our food bites are meant to be paired with quality-driven wines and lively conversation between friends.

This was our first time at Mitch’s and we thoroughly enjoyed it!! They put a great foot forward and it continued. It started with complimentary valet service. Then we were warmly greeted and our chairs were pulled out for us. We had great service throughout. Mitch even stopped by our table to check-in with us. Their appetizers were amazing. Our family favorites were the crispy tuna, pork belly & ahi tuna tacos. Our entrees were good and our desserts super yummy. Easily one of our new favorites in Palm Springs.

This is a locals favorite so it's often tough to get a reservation in peak season but we lucked out. I had the special halibut and it was one of the best halibut dishes I've ever tasted. Highly recommend.

Everything was so good… the food, service, ambience! Kelly, the manager was great! Our server, Colton was amazing. The only negative was that it was really hot and there weren’t any fans or anything to help provide a little relief from the heat. Still have 5 stars on everything because it was great!

I have on.y one negative, my husband has a walker and we didn’t know where the ramp was and it’s too far away from valet. We had to use the steps to the front door and then the steps to the main dining room. Very difficult for him. Need better access.

About the restaurant
Established in the heart of Palm Springs at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains, Le Vallauris has been one of the highest rated restaurants in the Coachella Valley since its inception in 1973. The exquisite cuisine at Le Vallauris is prepared by Executive Chef, Jean-Paul Lair, who has graced the restaurant for over 25 years. The Historic Landmark was built in 1927 as a home for the Roberson family, who managed Palm Springs' first hotel, The Desert Inn. Many grand parties were held in the house for guests such as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong and many more. Later on, when the restaurant was established it became a favorite place for Presidents and the Hollywood elite, and local socialites.

We loved dining at Morgan’s in the Desert. Food and ambience was excellent! We enjoyed the crab cake appetizer, filet mignon entree and some amazing Espresso Martinis. Service was also excellent! They brought us a delicious dessert for our anniversary.
