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.
Onion Soup (Upcharge)
Traditional Caesar Salad
Very pleasant service and very attentive. Nice ambiance and the food was excellent. The dessert was good, but they could improve on their chocolate tart. Scallops and foie gras patè was very good.
Lavendou lunch is as delightful as Lavendou dinner. Two of us had the wonderful crispy goat cheese salad, and the other in our party had the pasta special. All was tasty and repeat-able. Love this restaurant!
Friends getting together
A perfect dining experience! Food was amazing, service outstanding. Wine recommendations were a perfect match, too.
Great place. I've been going for 20+ years. Always of good quality. Love the escargot, lobster bisque, goat cheese salad, and everything else. The duck is awesome too.
Delicious food. Geraldine was a very attentive server.
Husband got sick eating the duck and he had to leave.
Waiters a little pushy
Don’t clean the table for next people until we leave
Most consistently great cuisine in Dallas. Attentive service by seasoned wait staff.
Lavendou has many delicious choices and the food is prepared perfectly each time. My husband ordered the filet with a peppercorn sauce, and cut it with fork. We dine here 3-4 times a month and are never disappointed.
Great as always in all areas!!! Thank You!
A++++ restaurant and the food continues to be amazing!!
Our waiter was rude. Couldn’t seem to listen. Food was good.
Dinner was wonderful and our waiter Eric was outstanding.
Lovely restaurant and lovely staff.
We elected to sit outside at lunch and the patio was great, the street noise was not. So next time we think we will sit inside. We suspect that sitting outside in the evening might be a better choice with hopefully not so many major construction trucks going up and down Preston! However everything else about our visit was Lavendou perfect
We are Duck and Dover Sole. Generous portions and cooked to perfection! Never disappoints!
Love this place!! Food and environment are amazing
Excellent as always! The Alsatian menu was a nice change and very enjoyable. Service was outstanding as it always is. So glad to see all of the usual workers and so glad they have been able to keep things going during these difficult times.
The Ceasar salad is always delicious. I had the grilled salmon and my husband had the filet of sole topped with crabmeat with a champagne sauce. Both cooked perfectly. They have a great wine selection also.
Great meal as always
Been coming here for 10 years so lus
Best outdoor patio
The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. The staff was very attentive.
Like a trip to Paris one of our favorite restaurant , Food is great fabulous French wines and great service.
Good food; good wine list; good prices; service leave a little to be desired. The noise level is high. I guess the food is good for Dallas; however, it is not on a par with New York (pre Covid ) or France :)
We discovered Lavendou upon moving to the Dallas area 23 years ago, and it has been our favorite restaurant since!
The Escargot, Duck with Souffle were fabulous. Our favorite restaurant.
Food was absolutely outstanding. Service did not impress.
Exquisite, authentic French bistro cuisine served with care and attention. Service staff complement the Chef nicely and are always attentive
Of course the inimitable Monsieur Pierre is ever present to ensure the perfect wine pairings with whatever dish you order. Love the exclusive Alsace wines...
3rd visit and will be back soon
One of our favorite restaurants in Dallas. The food and service is always excellent. Lovely setting and always very clean. Can’t wait until we dine there again!
Lavendou is always wonderful no matter what you choose. The soup of the day was lentil which is one of my favorites. We enjoyed grilled salmon and roasted duck that was cooked perfectly. We shared the profiterol for dessert. The waiters, bartender, and staff always provide excellent service.
We celebrated a friend’s birthday and this was a first visit. The food, service was outstanding, especially in light that they were full (rightfully) and appeared short of staff. We experienced the full breadth of the menu. And received expert guidance for our wine choices. I highly recommend this restaurant and hope to visit again when we are in the area.
Very noisy table, loudly sorted silverware and banged plates and dishes right next to our table all dinner, very inconsiderate !
This is a special occasion restaurant for us and never disappoints!
Lavendou never fails. My husband and I have been dining here for years and absolutely LOVE the food, the service, the atmosphere. I highly recommend Lavendou Bistro to anyone that loves food.
Best menu in Dallas for real French food. And the service is glorious!
All the food was delicious, from the appetizers through the dessert. We sampled various glasses of wine and they were very good. The restaurant was at about 80% occupancy, so it was not to loud. our waiter was busy at towards the end when we had dessert and wanted some dessert wine to go with it, and the manger noticed and came of over and took care of it. This place is a hidden gem where you get true French food without a ridiculous price.
Excellent creative menu. Attentive service and reasonable pricing given the superb quality of the food.
I have loved this restaurant since it opened in 1996. The food is always exceptional, I don’t think I’ve ever had a sub par meal here.
Great overall experience. Will definitely go back to try other options.
Food was outstanding! Had the mushroom appetizer first time and will be a regular item for all mushroom lovers. Fish, duck, and filet were all top notch. Eric provided great service.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Lavandou on every level very much, as we always do. We didn't mind the noise level at all. In fact, it contributed to a festive ambience!
We three ladies were seated in a quiet area, as I had requested. Everything was wonderful, and we stayed as long as we wished after our meal, just talking and enjoying the occasion. As always, the food and service were impeccable. Lavendou is my favorite restaurant for celebrating special occasions.
