A Valley classic since 1982, Rive Gauche Cafe sits tucked in the middle of a courtyard-style collection of small shops. Traditional French fare is the specialty here. The dishes are served on tables topped with white cloths, and the dining room has large windows that fill the space with light. Outdoor seating in a courtyard garden setting is also available. The menu includes favorites like escargot, filet mignon and rack of lamb. The wine list is extensive.
