Success! Thanks for posting your review of Rive Gauche Cafe. You’ve done the world some good today.

30 year customer

I strongly disagree about the service at Rive Gauche. I have been coming her for over 30 years and have never had bad service. I find the food good and the prices affordable. Not a place that I would bring ""the little ones"" Ventura, Ca

long time ""Rive Gaucher""

I can't help comment after reading the reviews of others. \r \r Shirad wrote that they were disappointed they couldn't get a complimentary ""gesture"" because of someone's birthday. PULEASE! Aren't you sick of people who want freebies because they think they're entitled? These are the same kinds of people who hold up lines in super- markets because they can't find their coupons, complain about anything and everyt... view more

Arrogant and disagreeable mgmt.

Just returned from a birthday lucheon. When I asked for a little birthday gesture, they said they can give us a candle after weBUY the deserts. Since noone wanted desert ,I said that a little complimentary gesture would be nice-they said they have'nt done that in 30 years. I went back to the table to my guests and the tall manager came over and told the entire table that I had requested a complimentary gesture and... view more

Do not eat here!

Not known for it's food by the locals, Rive Gauche is known as the place you can always get a seat - because it's always empty. In other words, the food stinks. I stopped by with my kids tonight for some dessert, and was told they couldn't serve us because we were sitting at a ""game table."" What's that??? We left, and on our way out, the manager, Aaron, berated me for bringing my kids into a bar! In front of m... view more

Romantic Los Angeles staple

If you are looking for a Los Angeles staple with heart, you have found your place. Service was decent (I am very particular) and the food solid...I will be back to try out Sunday brunch. Nice, quiet, and romantic in my opinion....

If you love good food, this is the place. I highly recommend the Pan Roasted Breast of Duck with Chambord Glaze (Delicious !!) I have been going here for about 10 years and have loved it each and every time. I do agree with some of the people that the service is lacking, but the food more than makes up for it. Their appetizers are very good too, Pate De Canard, the French Onion Soup and the Roasted Corn & Crab Bi... view more

Stomach Ache

I went to this restaurant with 3 of my 30-something friends -- all young professionals. We were definitely younger than all of the other patrons. The decor was terrible: Flowered carpet was in need of a good steam cleaning, The chairs were uncomfortable, Tabletops do not have proper linens (instead they are covered in glass), Menus are worn, Bathrooms are outside. The service was surprisingly slow considering how few... view more

What a find! Best Pommes Frites in Los Angeles!

My boyfriend and I found this little gem as we were driving down ventura while doing some holiday shopping this past weekend........we had a lovely late lunch out on the back patio, service was great and the food was amazing. We started with the crab stuffed mushrooms (brilliant - great texture, great flavour, topped with bernaise - mmmm) and split the NY Steak with poached egg (perfectly cooked, tender, juicy - eve... view more

My Top 3 Fish Dishes EVER - ( see my reviews for 2 others )

Wow, I was really surprised to read some negative reviews below! Our family just had a relative's birthday dinner here, and it was excellent all around! We got seated in the cozy, romantic patio alcove...the waitress was knowledgeable, experienced, and unobtrusive...their food is off the hook (salad, soup, fish, meat, desserts all were excellent!). They were even nice enough to make a hamburger (not on the menu) for ... view more

Average Food, Awful Service

I am not sure if the restaurant has changed ownership but in the past year the restaurant has gone from good to poor. The service was awful, the owner was rude and the food was prepared incorrectly. The worst customer service I have encountered at any restaurant in years. Much better choice out there.
