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.

    Went to a dinner on June 30th but the food was sub par. Started with the pate overall boring just a slice of pate with toast and underseasoned veggies main was a roasted rack of lamb requested mid rare half was the correct temp but the other half was very rare herb crust was decent but needed more herbs. Partner got the veal sweet bread but it seems they changed the dish from a wonderful puff pastry stuffed with veal and demi Glace to a subpar breaded veal with a weak sauce. I understand that it was their last day open but everything seemed subpar and not worth the price whatsoever. Will not be coming again.

    We came here for my birthday and started outdoors however, it was too warm so we moved inside with no problem with the staff. They were very kind to move us. The veal medallions were exceptional as were the escargot and cocktails. We will return in the future and we highly recommend.

    Excellent service from start to finish. We had the lobster ravioli (a must!), Alaskan halibut, escargots, and a Caesar salad (not on the menu but they will make it for you.) Lovely experience. I would definitely go back.

    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.
