Everything was great except for VERY ANGRY, CONDESCENDING AND UNPLEASANT receptionist despite fact that we had proper reservations and are frequent diners at this restaurant.

Horribly disappointing
Food and service way below average.
We we not the only guests that were unhappy. Tables around us sent back their food and drinks.
Do Not recommend.

This is my second dining experience at Lavende Bristo.
I loved it so much the first time.
This time my meal was just fair, luke warm, old shrimp with no crisp crunch.
I did not complain because it was a business gathering.

It was our first time to the Lavendar Bistro and would go again for sure. The food was excellent, we sat on the patio which was lovely. Highly recommend

Had reservations, but were still put inside. Could not hear the music and the waitress was having issues with the table next to us. Was not a great experience. Ahi Tuna with coconut was not my favourite. Normally we have a great experience.

Excellent food and atmosphere. Service seemed a little slower and less friendly than usual.

Wife had the duck because it was excellent the first time we came for dinner. This time the duck was over cooked & dry. We also had to wave down our waiter to get drinks or service. The couple with us were visiting and did not complain about the meal, until I asked on the way out the door how their dinner was. His steak was tough, but he didn't want to say anything because he was my guest.
We won't be back,
