    We returned to Lavendou after 10 years. Felt really different. Food was great, still french cuisine but upscaled. Everything was top scale. Life music French for most of it, it was a perfect fit with this cuisine. Service was efficient and done nicely. Won't wait long to return.

    This has been a favorite special dining experience for decades. It never fails to impress. On Tuesday evenings they provide a wonderful guitarist. It's lovely to dine, enjoy friends and listen to beautiful music all under the care of an amazing staff from the owners, the bartender and all the wait staff. Thank you once again. You remain my favorite restaurant in Dallas.

    Ambiance and service was good. The front hostess was clueless. No situational awareness. Had mushrooms and escargot as appetizers and they were wonderful. I ordered the New York strip and the meat was tough to chew and the sauce was average. Frankly it tasted like it had been refrigerated for some time. Not fresh! Don’t order this plate. The fettuccine with seafood was average. Soufflé grand marnier was outstanding. Not sure why they ask if it is a special occasion because it’s not even acknowledged. The place was packed though.

    We were there to celebrate our 25th Anniversary on Nov 29th. Restaurant signature duck plate was great. My wife ordered the special sea food trio. The fish were a little bit small and dry . Good experience overall. Could be better if the restaurant could offer something special since we did answer the question of what is the occasion when I booked a table

    My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Lavendou. We had a Ceasar salad and French onion soup for appetizers which were delicious. My husband had the filet with peppercorn sauce with pommfrits and I had the smoked salmon. Both were excellent. A very enjoyable evening.

    Lavendou is our go to restaurant for the past 20+ years for special occasion. The food is always delicious, comes out from the kitchen hot & everyone in our party is served together. The servers have been with the restaurant forever and the service is always attentive. Really loved the wine that was recommended by our server. Lavendou is a gem@

    We booked this reservation for a special occasion (16th birthday) and I called to confirm they could accommodate vegetarians (they said yes) and that we were celebrating something special. The vegetarian "option" was horrible - like truly horrible. A sandwich with just red and yellow peppers along with onions. I have never eaten anything like this at a tea service. We received two of those horrific sandwiches and one cucumber sandwich. The meat eater received 3 different options. The sandwiches were not made with care - they were sloppily cut and not what you'd expect at high tea. There is no choice for which tea you are served - it just arrives at the table. It was fine, but not what you would expect when booking a high tea service where you would get a menu of teas. It was a black tea that was caffeinated - so you are out of luck if you were looking for something else. The pastries and cake options were nice and the best part of the meal - but also nothing you couldn't just get at whole foods. Most of all, I was really disappointed that there was absolutely nothing special done to recognize the special occasion - even though it was in the reservation and I called to make sure they were aware. Literally, not even a happy birthday to a girl wearing a "it's my birthday" sash. We barely had any contact with the server so it's hard to rate whether the server was good or bad - they just delivered the 3 tiered arrangement of food and disappeared. We absolutely love going to high tea and the location here was really beautiful, but the experience was so, so disappointing for a special occasion. I wish we had celebrated elsewhere to have had a nice memory. We were not asked if we wanted anything else like champagne or a mimosa, or even more food by our server - the bill just arrived and we left. Maybe this place is great for lunch, but please do not come here to celebrate something special - you will definitely not leave feeling special. :(

    The cassoulet is wonderful and only offered in November and December. My husband had the roasted duck with wild rice that was moist and tender. No matter what you order at Lavendou, it is always excellent, including the delicious hot French bread. Reservations on Friday and Saturday night are needed because they are always very busy. Pascal and his wonderful staff will take great care of you!

    Our anniversary dinner at Lavendou was superb! Our reservation was set for 7:30. When we arrived, the hostess was ready to seat us immediately. When we arrived at our table, someone had already been seated there. The hostess was visibly disappointed and kept apologizing. She proceeded to go above and beyond and managed to find us a wonderful table in a different location right away. The restaurant was full and packed! The service continued to be spectacular throughout the night. From the sweet woman who kept our water glasses full, to the immediate clearing of out plates to our fabulous waiter, Fransisco. We started with Ceasar and Mediterranean salad,then a cheese platter. Our entrees were the Dover Sole and trout Almondine. We ended with their famous Souffle. Everything was delicious! The restaurant was very loud, but otherwise very enjoyable.

    I love this place but the last couple of times the food just isn't up to par. I never get warm bread. Last night I had the chicken it was good potatoes were meh. We got the pear dessert first off it didn't even taste like a pear second it was cold and hard. It was probably the worst dessert I've had in a long while. My husband didn't even eat it that's how bad it was. He never gives up desserts. We just got back from France in October. We were hoping for some really good French food.

    First visit and assuredly not the last! Food and service was outstanding, professional and customer concentric - a pleasing experience. She had a ceasar salad then the seafood special which included shrimp, mahi mahi and salmon - finishing off with cream brulee. I had mussels to start and veal medallions as main course with a B&B finish. all to be enjoyed and highly recommended a well presented chardonnay complimented the meal and the table. we will visit often

    This review is based on the afternoon tea. There is one server working the entire room with a few helpers that bring water clear plates etc. We saw our server 3x , for the order , check in on how it is and for the bill. The rest was done by his team. Very average and disconnected. All of the food for the tea is served at once. Again average in regards to afternoon tea, sandwiches were ok , scones are different from traditional ones and the 3 desserts are very rich. You are only offered 1 tea flavor their house blend which was ok. I prefer to be able to choose my tea and at least have 2 kinds. We asked for more tea which they got immediately but it was weak and we felt they added more waters and leave to the current pot. The price is right for what u get. Wouldn’t return for the tea it was very lackluster.

    Exceptional meal on all counts. Split the Goat Cheese saland with my partner, substantial for both of us. Split a delicious salmon, also sufficient for 2. Split Asparagus -- delectable and also very substantial. And split a grand marnier souffle which was just over the top. Kudos to chef and servers. Great experience!

    Very loud inside. And every few minutes they clang this really loud bell. It’s really hard to hear the person across the table here. The food is great and the soufflé was my favorite part of the experience.
