Lavendou Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Pascal Cayat and Lavendou present an authentic French culinary experience with wonderful bistro style ambience, an excellent wine list with a variety of french selections. The menu is equally authentic, well thought out and expertly prepared. All year is great, but Holiday Season transports you back to Paris!
I've been coming to Lavendou for years. It is the quintessential French restaurant, not pretentious, just good food. The standards are old school French, and I would enjoy seeing healthier updates to the recipes, but they taste marvelous anyway. I will continue to be a regular customer!
We sat on the patio as the evening was very pleasant. Daniel was our server and he as attentive as always.
Our meal started out with a great bottle of wine recommended by the owner, Pascal Cayet. The best escargot in the DFW area was first. I had the Gambas seafood dish which was excellent. The others had the Dover of Sole stuffed with crabmeat. We had a Grand Marnier soufflé and apple tart for dessert and finished the evening with a warm glass of French Connection ( half Courvesoir and half Grand Marnier).
Great evening for sure.
Not really impressed. The Lobster Bisque tasted like it can from a McCormick package. The New York Strip was pretty tough (tougher than steaks purchased at Wal Mart). The Chocolate Soufflé was not edible. It tasted like the chocolate was burnt. When I brought this to the Waiter's attention, he became very rude and argumentative. On the plus side, my wife said the Duck was very good and the Mussels were tasty. I was glad because it was her Birthday.
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.
