    Always enjoy the food at Lavendou. Great steaks and fish dishes and excellent French wines. Only thing that we were not happy about was the very pricy $17 small cosmopolitans :-

    We love this gem in the heart of North Dallas. We usually start with the Moules Marinière au Safran. As always it does not disappoint. We both cannot do fresh garlic and this sauce is amazing! The fillet was delicious as well as the chocolate soufflé. You simply cannot go wrong here. Service was a bit slow but when in "France" why hurry? A simply must do if you love a good old fashioned French Bistro for dinner. Muah!

    Everyone enjoyed appetizers except for one: his French onion soup was lukewarm. The soft shell crab was amazing - I wished I'd ended as an entree. Several of us were very excited at the prospect of one of the specials (beef stroganoff), and rather disappointed at the result: overall, while the pasta and meat were well prepared, the flavor was mediocre and, more importantly, not Beef Stroganoff (at least that had been seen in Russia or Germany!) Full of tomato, the normal beef & cream flavors were overpowered. If you want French stroganoff, maybe this is your spot. Of course, we ended on a high note (soufflé), so that was nice...

    This was a birthday dinner. We had a great time. The ambiance was terrific and the service was terrific. The waiter spoke French and did a great job helping selecting a wine. The food was delicious. My wife had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly and I had to sole. The fish was well cooked and the sauce was incredible. For desert the soufflé is a must have. We enjoy French food and are thrilled to have a place like this to add to our dining rotation.

    We celebrated my husband’s 80 birthday. Our server and food were excellent. Never needed to ask for anything, drinks always full, used dishes removed immediately and boxes to go were offered when it was apparent we were saving room for dessert. We celebrate all our special occasions at Lavendau.

    Don't be fooled by the neighborhood. The bistro is very comfortable, yet classy. It has a European feel to it without being stuffy at all. The food at Lavandou is what I think of when I think of French food. I spent time in the South of France where the food is not fussy, but it is elevated and that is exactly what was delivered. The soft-shell crab was incredible, the beef stroganoff what real stroganoff should be, rustic, full-bodied, and not overly sour creamed and white. The use of a tomato base made a big difference. The beef was tender and the perfect size (an important detail in fact). The shrimp & fish special my wife ordered was good, but not inspiring - the one and only less than perfect detail of an otherwise perfect meal. The Mahi tasted fishy at times and it should not. The french onion soup is worthy of mention. Perfectly made, it was a nice surprise, to be honest. So many French Onion Soups are routine, but this is enormously flavorful without being overpowering. Perhaps the best I've had (even compared to the soup I've had in Paris). The souffle dessert (which must be ordered early) was what we all imagine coming out of Le Cordon Bleu's kitchen. I recommend the raspberry. The suggested Malbec was a perfect complement to the meal and very drinkable. My wife's Raymond Cab was equally as good. Service was both professional and friendly from the waiter to the clearing staff. Each was attentive without being intrusive. The bread, butter, and tapenade were very good. All of that loveliness without breaking the bank. We will be back when we have special friends or family in town or when we crave great French food. There were too many things we wanted to try not to return to again and again.
