Lavendou Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Dined there before. Greeted by hostess, seated in two minutes, waiter came by quickly to ask about drinks, special occasion, etc.
Food is delicious, served expertly. Lots of wines and drinks to choose from. Apple tart and soufflé were great ending. Atmosphere is charming. Manager(owner) dropped by to enquirer about meal.
Our waiter, Bernie, was attentive and mindful of our needs.
Overall a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ evening.
My wife and I went to Lavendou Bistro last Saturday for a date night. The ambiance and energy were great and we had a back corner table. Our waiter was attentive and professional. The food exceeded our expectations from the goat cheese salad, onion soup, veal and beef entrees, and the Grand Marnier souffle to cap it off. Essentially, we loved it! Would recommend this bistro to anyone in search of authentic French food in DFW.
Our friend used to live in Plano and frequented Lavendou but has since moved elsewhere. He was thrilled to be back and the 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, as well as the country -style french cuisine. The blue and white theme still holds up well after all these years! Scallops, veal, fish and more. The menu is filled with specials so you will have plenty of options, even if vegan.
Lavendou was excellent as always. Service is attentive, but not overly so. The food was superb. Classic French food prepared the classic way. No trendy fusion food here. Try the Tart Flambé as an appetizer - this used to be Andre Soltner’s signature dish during the heyday of Lutece - it’s an Alsace classic.
We went for our first time and had high expectations. The wine list is extensive and my husband wanted to make the perfect choice and tried to discuss options with our waiter, but he showed no interest or knowledge about the fine at the restaurant. My sole was a disappointment, and the soufflés were undercooked.
We celebrated a friend’s birthday here and had a very good time. Two of us had an Alsatian charcuterie special with sausages and sauerkraut; the other two had sauteed tilapia. We were each happy with our selections. The service was attentive and helpful. The souffles were a highlight.
My husband and I shared our wedding anniversary dinner there. They gave us a cosy corner and really great service - not too intrusive but attentive. Having spent many summers in Provence, we were so happy to find the cooking authentic, and high quality, with some great flavor combinations. I had canard with cassis jus and it was divine!
Also, they put a candle into my soufflé for us!
Lavendou is one of the best restaurants in Dallas. I travel extensively and rate Lavendou at the top of the list of many of the excellent restaurants I have experienced anywhere. The food is always outstanding, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is just right for a relaxed sumptuous dining experience. This is my go-to choice for special occasions, taking business colleagues to dinner, and just a wonderful meal with friends. It is not inexpensive but you get everything you pay for and more. One of my favorites is the Dover Sole -- you cannot get authentic Dover Sole very often and this is as good as any in Paris. And no need to comment about their dessert souffles because they re indescribably delicious. If you haven't been, go soon and then keep going back!
Lovely restaurant. I met my wife for lunch. They were not very busy and lots of great open tables. For some strange reason they sat us right by the entry to the kitchen, beside a fabric screen, and the water station. Great view of kitchen activity and noise. Maybe they don't like our looks and gave us the worst table in the house? The tomato basil soup and crepes were delicious! The decor is lovely and it could have been much more enjoyable. Of course, my bad for not asking to move. C'est la vie...
