La Rive Gauche Restaurant Review

: The décor and menu may be slightly dated, but the old-monied Palos Verdes Peninsula doesn’t attempt to be hip or cutting-edge. This old standby---it has been going strong since 1976---fits right in with the manicured Tuscan estates of the area. Diners here begin with classic dishes like escargots Bourgogne, coquilles St-Jacques or a satisfying French onion soup. For main courses, consider duck à l’orange, ostrich flambéed with port and brandied cherries or steak au poivre. A chocolate soufflé seems the most appropriate way to finish up a meal at this establishment, where tables topped with pink linen and fresh flowers lie beneath beamed ceilings. With more than a thousand labels, the wine list includes plenty of celebrated Bordeaux for those looking to splurge.
