Contemporary French
Lavendou, a retreat into the French countryside - a place where life is savored as much as the food. Lavendou is thoroughly French, from the inviting decor to the gracious service and authentic cuisine. But don't expect it to be pretentious. Owner Pascal Cayet is dedicated to providing service that is friendly and efficient. And you will find Chef François Soyez's menu to be deliciously approachable. Serving the lighter fare of Southern France, Lavendou offers many items to tempt your taste buds.

Love Lavendou. Normally noise levels are quite but we went on Tuesday when they have live music. Not too loud and great ambiance.

This is an absolutely charming and authentic French bistro. When some of the wait staff are clearly French, you know that you can count on authenticity! Service was fast and friendly, and the atmosphere was delightful! My daughter in law and I came for High tea, and I am planning on returning for dinner soon!

I'd like to give them a 5 star for everything, but I am always disappointed with the red wine selection. Too expensive for less than expected quality.

We always enjoy our dinner; excellent service, delicious food. We normally order a bottle of wine, but decided to order two glasses. I felt the selection of the red wine could be improved.

As a party of four, we had 3 who had fish. The sole with crab was wonderful, and the branzino Mediterranean was one of very best I have ever had. The cassoulet pleased our 4th person just as much. Everyone around us were loving their dessert souffles, so we ordered that as well. Again it was extraordinarily good.

The restaurant was quite busy, but we were still very pleased with the service. There was no waiting around for the waiter, but we were not at all rushed and appreciated being left to enjoy our conversations. And we could actually hear those conversations without shouting.

When the bill came we were pleased to see it was more reasonable than the meal would indicate, especially compared to certain Dallas eateries which are very proud of their
food indeed.

Absolutely Five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! We were there to celebrate my aunt's birthday, and the resident musician, Patrick Rodriguez and his special guest, Sherna Armstrong, sang a beautiful rendition of Happy Birthday to her. It is a wonderful neighborhood spot with a great ambiance, excellent food, and extraordinary entertainment!

This was our second visit .
The 'trout' looked like flounder. I have never seen a trout that looked like that.
Taste was not 'trout'.
veggies were much too dente.
Pork was nothing special, but sauce was nice.
Service quite slow...even for a busy night.
I had to wait an unreasonable time to receive cappuccino.....dinner was finished, wine was finished, and dessert already served....all before coffee arrived!
The raspsberry soufle was nothing special, but interesting.

Wonderful experience, great ambiance, exceptional food. The only missed note was the fact that our server seemed totally unaware of what had or didn't have gluten in it. He represented two dishes as gluten free when, in fact, they were not. Insomuch as my wife is celiac, this was not a "trendy" concern.

Lavendou is such a cute little restaurant with great food and amazing service. The decor is cozy and unique and the food was delicious! The bread they give you as an appetizer was some of the best bread I have had. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. It's a little pricey for me to be an everyday spot, but it was the perfect place for a special occasion!
