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.

    It was a lovely and delicious evening. Cuisine chosen from the varied possibilities was wonderful. Staff was gracious and accommodating. And of course there’s that charming patio.

    If you make a reservation on Open Table, dining time choices are limited, so next time I will call the restaurant directly. Soups and salads were excellent. Wait staff was outstanding and very pleasant. Entrees were served hot on hot plates, which was great. Food is expensive, but very good, not great. Both entrees could have been more flavorful. Desserts were just okay.

    We just had another lovely meal at Le Vallauris. Edgar was so very attentive and generous. The pear appetizer was great and both our meals were amazing. Unfortunately I don’t know all the names of the wonderful people who helped us. Regardless, my husband and I just had an amazing meal and service. We shall return! Mary Ann and Fred

    We’ve been to Le Vallauris many times when we lived in CA. We live in AZ now but vacationed in Palm Desert this week. Le Vallauris was top on the list of repeat experiences, specifically for our 36th anniversary. Oh what an exquisite experience! I had the vichyssoise, and my husband had the smoked salmon on a potato nest. Then I had the sautéed lobster with vanilla over spinach and corn cakes: to die for! My hubby had the veal medallions, also amazing. We shared a grand marnier soufflé for dessert. Just perfect! Service was impeccable and though it was 110 degrees the outdoor garden patio was cool enough for us to enjoy. I wish we lived closer. We’d be there for every special occasion. Bravo, Le Vallauris!

    We were celebrating my husband's birthday. We love to have this as our special place for such occasions. We loved the food and worked with the waiter to get. a wide variety including the smoked salmon with toast points, the blue cheese poached pear that was out of this world, the crispy scallops (wow indescribably delicious), thee lobster ravioli, and we finished with the halibut. All so amazing. Our server took great care of us and made yet another incredible memorable experience. Oh we finished with the soufflé which was over the top as always.
