Great service and great foodMy wife really loved her Mother's Day brunch at Lavendou. The staff was very accomodating and the patio was lovely.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded expectationsTruly memorable dining experience. We had a group of seven. Ordered and shared among us a wide variety of entrées and main courses. Everything was excellent... Only a matter of degree. We had heard about Lavendou for years but this was our first visit. It's expensive, but well worth it. The inside dining room has a wonderful ambience, but was too loud for our preferences, so we ate outdoors, which was also very pleasant. Service professional and attentive. No complaints.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently nice dining experienceWe've been going to this restaurant for years & we know we will get a consistently good meal and consistently good service. It has a small, romantic atmosphere which is what we were looking for to celebrate our anniversary. It won't knock your socks off, and even though they were notified it was our anniversary they sort of just shrug their shoulders and keep right on going. No one makes you feel particularly special there, but it is always a nice dining experience due to the ambience & food. I think their entrees are a little over priced for the type of restaurant that it is.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceAwesome French food located in Plano. The waiter we had was really great and recommended a wine after ours was not available. The food was top notch. Will be going back again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great serviceThe classic French cuisine is well executed but not outstanding. The wine choice of the waiter was excellent and reasonably priced. We go to this restaurant for special occasions and are typically satisfied with the value and service we get for our money. The souflee is excellent.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service are alwaysThe food and service are always wonderful.

Overall, my wife and I had a wonderful birthday dinner for her.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Provencal FrenchWonderful Provencal French bistro! Love the decor. The Olive Tapenade served with the french baguette is fantastic. BE CAREFUL not to fill up on it. While I didn't drink any, the wine list looked quite complete with a wonderful selection of French wines. The escargot were good, but the entrecote was wonderful (especially the accompanying merlot butter). The pomme frites are note quite the "french" style, but were fine. The Grand Marnier Souffles was as expected, very good. My wife enjoyed the Moules and found them lovely.

Great wine that is reasonable and everyone, including the owner, is very attentive to the customers. Will definitely return to Lavendou.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench atmosphere was great!This was a great little restaurant. My wife loved the French atmosphere. The food was very good and well priced. The tables are close and it is somewhat noicy, but I think they were going more for a community feeling. So if you are expecting a quiet table without people near you, this isn't for you, however we didn't feel cramped or have the need to raise our voices to be heard. My only complaint would be the service was slow. There may have only been two waiters working the somewhat small restaurant and took a long time between the water server filling our glasses and getting a drink order placed. But still, a good evening.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderul food and serviceWonderul food and service with an excellent wine list that is reasonable.
