La Rive Gauche also offers a full banquet menu and staff to fill the needs of almost any size party. We can attend to your special functions from corporate business meetings and birthday parties to wedding rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions.
La Rive Gauche is famous throughout California for its 5-Star Wine List and is also the recipient of the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for having One of the Most Outstanding Wine Lists in the World. We have a cellar in the dining room and encourage customers to request a guided tour through its bottle-filled walls. It has been said time after time, that more people have had their first date and have even gotten engaged at La Rive Gauche than any other place in Palos Verdes Estates.
