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.

Always outstanding, never disappoints. this is without questions one of the finest French restaurants ANYWHERE. Pascal is hands down the most accommodating, cordial. professional in the industry. Don't waste your time going elsewhere if it's fine French food you are seeking.

Cassoulet is back which is one of my favorites! My husband had the filet with a peppercorn sauce that was prepared perfectly and was served with pomfrets. We had a wonderful bottle of Bordeaux and profiterols for dessert. Another fun evening at Lavendou!

Food was awesome as always. Ambiance perfect. Our server was a bit slow, we ended up pouring our own wine and waited a long while to order, but we were with good friends and had an awesome time.

We dine at Lavendou almost every week. The food and service are always excellent, and there are so many wonderful choices sometimes it's hard to decide. If you haven't tried Lavendou, you should. Make sure and have a reservation because they are always busy.

Great lunch. We all ordered different French onion soup and fish items: filet of sole, trout amandine, and salmon. Lavendou has nice service, ambiance, and tasty food. Such nice weather, we sat outdoors.

We choose to sit on the patio for our meal, which was a wonderful space and the heater kept us very comfortable on a cool fall evening. Excellent service, good French cuisine. Worth coming back again for another meal.

Food, service and ambiance are all great at this Dallas classic French restaurant. Bernard behind the bar is one of a kind who can turn out drink orders faster than anyone you've ever seen. Go a little early and have a cocktail at the bar before your reservation. It's worth it.

My husband and I had the Ceasar salad and filet of sole with crabmeat with a champagne sauce, asparagus, and delicious French fries. Everything was prepared perfectly. A big thank you to Pascal and his staff.
