Rive Gauche cafe

Rive Gauche Cafe is a charming European-style restaurant. We offer bricked courtyard dining in our garden and quaint interior rooms with surrounding French windows. The romantic ambience creates the feeling of dining in a village de Provence with a touch of old world.

Rive Gauche Dining

Our menu features French-California gourmet cuisine. Favorite specialties include Duck in a Dried Cherry Gastrique, Sand Dabs Amandine, NY Steak Au Cinq Poivre, Eggs Oscar, and Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee. Our customers rave the escargots are 'magnifique', and the Onion Soup Gratinee and Tarte Tatin are the most authentic they have found west of Paris' Left Bank!

We are open from Tuesday to Sunday for dinner, with brunch on the weekend. Our inviting lounge bar and courtyard are open at 4pm Tuesday to Friday for happy hour. Rive Gauche is the perfect place for private parties, showers, birthdays, business cocktails, receptions, and special events, with rooms for as intimate as ten, or accomodating up to seventy.

Rive Gauche Restaurant

Whether sitting by the fountain for champagne brunch served all day Saturday and Sunday, or relaxing in the lounge near the fireplace with an assiette de fromage, a French martini, or a glass of wine from an impressive cellar, we are sure you'll discover what may be the 'best kept secret' in town.
