About the restaurant
Bar seating and ledge-leaning is the rule of thumb -- think Paris tabac or the zinc -- the heat of local life, crowded with regulars at the counter waiting for their vin rouge. Here you'll find our Cave à Manger, an eclectic curation of wines by the glass offered with a menu of small plated savory delicacies created for this tasting smorgasbord. More than an amuse-bouche, less than a serving. Range, variety, exploration and discovery are the point...........................................
RESERVATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED BUT, IF YOU DON'T SEE ANY AVAILABILITY, JUST WALK-IN FOR THE NEXT SEAT AVAILABLE.

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 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!

The cocktail was perfect! The glass of wine was a good pour. The caesar salad was super fresh and perfectly dressed. Our waiter, Justin was attentive and a pleasure. The duck was fabulous!!! Two legs and two thighs! Green beens were cooked perfectly (sadly, many places serve them basically raw). I changed out the potato cooked in duck fat for the aux gratin and was not disappointed! Banana in filo pastry was just delicious. Perfect dinner and really reasonable for what you got!!! We love the hostesses there as well. Just a perfect evening!

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.
