LUNCH Private Parties 2016-2017

Still the gold standard in the desert”, this French-Mediterranean “gem” hits the trifecta as Palm Springs’ No. 1 for Food, Decor and Service, thanks to an “outstanding” staff, a “romantic” “old-style French” dining room opening to “beautiful”, “tree-shaded” patio and “superb”, “classic” cuisine paired with an “excellent wine list”; it’s “worth every dollar from your children’s college fund” to experience what most agree is the “best restaurant in the Coachella Valley.”
