We were with a work group of 8. We did outside dining on the porch. Loved that the place is dog friendly. The food was very good. Enjoyed Chef Didier coming to the table after our meal to check on us. Cozy place.

Many celebrations have taken place at 71 Palms; many business and romantic lunches have taken place at 71 Palms. Countless plates of exquisite country French food have been served. 71 Palms you will be missed.

We had lunch twice while in Ventura and both times were served by Didier outside. Food is excellent and the service perfect. We had salads and crepes for dessert both times. Take your pets, they have a pet menu!

My son and I had a fantastic dinner. The server was wonderful and meal was great. The Prawns and Rice were amazing as was the Ceasar Salad.

I had a heirloom tomato salad that was great but too much for a salad. Bouilibase was average. Apple tart just so so. With a glass of wine it cost me $72 plus tip. Overpriced. The restaurant is a craftsman home and it is pretty.
