We brought some friends who had not been to Lavendou Bristo. They thoroughly enjoyed the food, escargot, filet mignon and the soufflés. The French Connection drinks were wonderful as well.

We haven't been to Lavendou Bistro for some time and actually chose it because it would be quieter than most. However, the food was OUTSTANDING!!! We plan to become regulars in the future!

Enjoyed authentic French cuisine in a cozy setting and thrilled to find extensive gluten-free options (including a Raspberry Soufflé!). My husband is French and I live in France for 15 years. This restaurant offers a wonderful, varied menu of traditional dishes. We appreciate that they do not try to 'Americanize' their food to appease the North Texas palette.

I was a little disappointed with how loud the restaurant was. The trout almandine was quite good. They even made me a special chocolate mousse since I am gluten free and really wanted a chocolate dessert.

As always, Lavendou delivered a nice ambience, dinner for a Birthday occasion. Mussels and crevettes, were delicious but especially both fish were remarkable. Along with that, an extensive wine list that added to the enjoyment of our dinner.

Excellent TX French American restaurant - as good as you'll find for authentic French food in Dallas TX. Very cozy oasis located in a strip mall in Northern Dallas. The Grand Marnier Soufflé was as good as we've had anywhere (be sure to order when placing your main course order). Service was excellent although every table was taken - they were a hustling bunch, but very cordial and attentive. Recommend when the main course is going out for dinner and you want a special nite out.

This is great french restaurant. We go there about every 2-3 months. Onion soup there is fabulous. We have had the Dover sole (cheaper of the two offered). It was delicious. I prefer the lemon butter sauce on it as opposed to their sauce which is heavier cream sauce which they accommodated. It came out perfect. Other table mates had their chicken, duck and veal. All gave great reviews. They served a non memorable dessert for my birthday gratis. However they make fabulous Soufflés.

For a busy restaurant, the service and food are exceptional. Pierre the waiter was phenomenal and you could see Pascal making his rounds. This was our first time to Lavendou Bistro and we were celebrating our 3rd Anniversary. The staff made us feel welcome and they even gave us complimentary champagne for our celebration. It's not often that I am so high on a restaurant but Lavendou is a prize. We can't wait to get back.

Lavendou is a family favorite. The food and service has always been first class. It's the place we prefer for traditional French cuisine, and it's casual enough that you don't have to worry about "getting ready" to go out. We always start with the escargot, and we usually end with one of their delicious desserts. The portions are large enough that we usually take home a box so that we can save room for dessert at the restaurant.

Food was good. Service a bit slow at times. We requested that we needed a bit of extra time to make our choices, however, that time seemed WAY too long. Also, we were seated at a table for 6 and the lighting was so horrible that I actually could NOT read the menu and had to resort to using a flashlight attacheed to my car keys ! Other tables had better lighting, unfortunately the only 2 tables that held 6 people were in areas with horrible lighting; they finally increased the overhead lighting a little bit, but it was still hard to read the menus; even one of the waitstaff had to bring an extra flashlight so that we could all read our menus. I don't mind "mood lighting", but in this case, the rather dim lighting really doesn't help. Having had elderly parents (for whose milestone birthday we were here to celebrate to begin with) who then constantly complained that this was the most ridiculous lighting that they've ever experienced in their entire lives didn't exactly enhance the mood...

Great French cuisine! Excellent boullibase! Excellent veal! The escargot is spectacular! Great selection of wines at reasonable prices. I always get the chocolate soufflé- light and tasty. I’ve gone to Lavondou many times (over 50 times) over the years and have never had a bad meal. Highly recommend!!

First time to dine at this restaurant. We met friends there and celebrated a couple of birthdays. Everything was above my expectations. The appetizers were the best I have ever had-Shrimp Bisque and Escargot. The entree's, Dover Sole and Beef Tournedos, were fabulous. The wine list extensive. The souffle's were divine. The server was available, but not hovering. We could not have had a better experience. I recommend this restaurant HIGHLY!
