I liked the atmosphere, but the service and food was not amazing. Our waiter was hard to understand and not very good a communicating for wine selections.
It was just what we wanted to celebrate my husband’s birthday with our grown children. The environment was cozy and intimate, the food was absolutely spectacular, and the service was attentive and friendly (but not too much so). We enjoyed everything about it - from the escargot to the apple tart - yum!
The Osso Bucco was cooked perfectly and served with pappardelle pasta that was excellent. The food is always excellent at Lavendou and there are so many items to choose from.
My favorite spot for a romantic date in Dallas
We sat on the patio, which is decorated very attractively. Inside is attractive too, but we are avoiding indoor seating due to Covid. Service was attentive. All the food we had was great.
Very nice service. Definitely coming back.
ALWAYS GREAT AND DELICIOUS FOOD, HAVE BEEN GOING FOR A LONG TIME.
Great meal and wine pairing suggestions. Service was excellent!! Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the choices on the menu. Despite its location, the ambiance on the patio was quite comfy. Will definitely be going back.
Great birthday celebration!! Ambiance very French yet friendly, service very attentive, and food excellent. One of our favorites!
Waitstaff were professional and prompt. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very comfortable. Hope to come back again soon!
Lavendau Bistro was very good. The have authentic French food. The food was well prepared. Our service was quite good. The wine list is good. We had the Gran Mariner Souffle and found it to be excellent.
Lavendou has always been a favorite for special dinner occasions, but I’ve had lunch there on a whim, and it was every bit as good as the dinner service. Pascal runs a tight ship, and is always circulating amongst the tables, ensuring everything is excellent.
If you haven’t had the Dover Sole, you are missing out!
Very good! Service was ok, but food was great. Highly recommend the duck!
Great food and fun on patio.
Excellent service, delicious food, steak came at perfect temperature. Very good serving size of food.
Desserts were the bomb.
Our favorite quant restaurant for French food.
Amazing mussels, fries, onion soup, great service.
Always excellent food and the staff is wonderful. A perfect evening!
Amazing service! Enjoyed the food, too. Had the steamed mussels, cheese plate, specialty fish, and of course two desserts. We enjoyed the French ambiance and especially the waiter. He was a Belgium gentleman who was an absolute delight. We especially loved the signature dessert, chocolate mousse with cappuccinos. We will be back with our teenage daughter soon.
The service was excellent, as was the duck, the filet of sole, vegetables, and grand mariner souffle.
I ordered a special which was a veal dish. I've had veal many times before but this was a little bit tough . I was disappointed in that. Everything else was very good.
We went for the Fete de la Choucroute and it was amazing. All 4 courses were delicious and prepared to perfection. Our french waiter was the best part. He was so charming and generous and made our evening very special. We sat outside with heaters and felt very comfortable and safe. It was a great experience for us celebrating our friend's 70th birthday.
Theo and Pascale never disappoint! Everything was fantastic. Mussels, Tornedous, fritte, sole, souffles - everything!
We eat at Lavendou at least twice a month. The roasted duck, filet of sole with crabmeat, salmon, steak, etc. are wonderful and cooked perfectly. You can never go wrong with Lavendou. Always first5 class. We are looking forward to returning next weekend to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary!
Special Alsace dinner was fantastic! A change from the normal menu. This is the best French restaurant in Dallas.
Authentic French cuisine. Sat outside on a large patio, in the midst of a brisk Northern breeze, buffeted by strategically placed portable propane heaters. Service was exceptional. Food was beautifully prepared and presented. Loved the onion soup gratinee, the roasted chicken and tomato/mozzarella salad. Cappuccino after arrived steaming hot and very tasty. Lots of other menu items to explore next time.
Our favorite restaurant. Bit pricey, but totally worth it.
Delicious food and excellent service.
They also handled COVID precautions well. The tables are well spaced, everybody is wearing masks. The guests distancing also helps with the noise level.
Will come back!
Outstanding food and service. My new French and date restaurant!
We have been there several times over the last 10 years. They are always great. We will look forward to our next visit.
We treated friends to a lovely dinner at Lavendou and they were very, very pleased commenting on the excellent service and superior food. Good Job Lavendou Bistro!
We first met Pascal in 1988 at Chez Gerard at Knox and McKinney. We left Dallas for many years and have now returned. My wife and I had our first date at Chez Gerard, and celebrated our 31st anniversary at Lavendou Bistro this week. The food, service and ambience were wonderful, with all the same attention to detail we enjoyed at Chez Gerard many years ago. We were also delighted to again have the opportunity to visit personally with Pascal during our visit. Do not miss this gem of a dining experience!
Our waiter basically abandoned us after we ordered. We asked for more bread and salt and pepper and lemon and we never got it from him. The ladies that work there were excellent and very attentive. It makes me angry to think HE got our tip, when the women who really served our table should have gotten it.
He had a German kind of accent. He does NOT pull his weight. Thinks he is being very charming, but gives poor service!
Great food, always loved the food and atmosphere here!!
Outstanding Experience in every way!
Service and food were very good. Owner and Maitre’D very attentive. Would definitely recommend dining here.
Wonderful restaurant. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts are perfect each time. Pascal and his staff make sure your are happy with the service.
Excellent escargot in butter garlic sauce, steak au poivore and pomme frites as well as delicious souffles! Never a bad meal here!!
We go to Lavendou almost every year for our anniversary, and we love it! Excellent food, excellent service, and we’ll keep going!
Lavendau is our Go To for Great French Cuisine. The entire Staff is Friendly and Professional.
The staff was great and the food superb. The bread with olive oil was amazing. I would have liked to see a little more spacing, but the night was great.
I have been going to this gentleman's restaurant's since 1987. Lavendou is hands down the finest French restaurant in the metroplex. From the perfectly prepared escargot to the most tender filet you will experience. The owner, Pascal Cayet, goes above and beyond making every guest feel special and appreciated. Don't miss the fabulous restaurant.
