Lavendou Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We have been dining at Lavendou Since 1995, mostly dinners, but some lunches including business. The food has always been very well prepared, served hot, consistently. The wine list gives the diner many choices and numerous price points. Over the years we have experienced great service and the wait staff knowledgable about the food and wine, and at times offering good suggestions that have added to the quality of the meal. The restaurant is comfortable to be in and one can carry on a conversation without having to talk loud to be heard.
AMAZING!! The decorations were uniquely beautiful and the ambiance was intimate and romantic! The food was some of the best tasting combinations i’ve ever had! You definitely have to get the escargot to start and the creme brulee infused with lavender to end, the flavors just burst in your mouth. I will definitely be coming back and telling everyone i know how great it was!
Arrived for our Valentine’s Day lunch and was greeted by a nice host and seated for our reservation time slot. Food was (and always has been) very tasty. I think they might need to consider more servers during special event days like VDay since they were packed and service was a little slow. I did not get a water refill which would really be my only complaint. Server was courteous and tried to get the order taken and the check back but was very busy with all his tables.
I would go back again but will try a normal night. I would (and have) recommend them to a friend or family for dining.
I've been here twice now and both times were great experiences overall. The staff is very nice and accommodating. The only thing I would note is that I would have liked it if the staff were a little more attentive. First time they were excellent, but this more recent visit not as much. It was still a great experience and love the afternoon high tea here. I will definitely be back and try their dinner menu as well.
The meal was poorly paced. We went to dinner there on a Saturday, and the entire meal too one hour. The restaurant is more concerned with turning the tables over then a properly paced meal in the true French style which they attempt to pull off. This was not the actions of one waiter, but as we observed other tables around us the same rush was going on. Overall the menu, ambiance, and energy should have made this meal a winner. However, due to the rush and lack of a attention to pacing the meal, I would not go back. There are too many great restaurants in the Dallas area to put up with this unprofessional move.
