this was or second time there and we enjoyed it even more than the first. the outside seating is the best. our waiter was informative and prompt and the food was delicious
its pricey but you pay for the atmosphere - looking forward to going back. I recommend reservations - the place gets very busy fast

Dinner was wonderful, as always. Packed even on a cold evening. Heaters were perfect. Had the special fish, champagne and a bottle of wine. Marlena at the front desk was wonderful. Only thing that could have been better was someone who knew the wine list. The waiter asked the owner to stop by but by the time he did our entrees had already been served.

Beautiful setting, excellent food, sub-par service. It was a windy night and when we arrived we asked for an inside table so we could enjoy our meal without leaves, twigs, and dirt flying into our food and drinks. We were told there were no inside tables and were wound around tables to a far corner. Guess what, there were inside tables; they just didn't want to use a 4 top for 2 folks
We sat there for about 8 minutes with nothing. Finally a server came by with menus and said she would send over some water. She pointed out our server at another table and offered to get us drinks while we waited. It was another 7-8 minutes when our waiter finally came over. He finished with the other table and took care of two others before coming to us. Now it was a busy night but he wasn't paying attention. And considering that we were outside it was extremely noisy. We have been here several times and each time left feeling that the experience was less than satisfying. Guess we'll let another year go by before thinking about giving them another chance.

There was an event on the patio and they seated us inside. Not near the dining experience. Food was all delicious. Anita served us and was awesome.

We had a wonderful birthday evening with a table of 5 adults. The food was excellent and service was great. Thank you for an excellent experience. Lavender is a local favorite with a comprehensive menu and wine list.

Ambience is always great in the patio.. food is so so. One dinner had to be sent back as it was cold. The salads had no dressing and we had to wait and ask three times for dressing. The shrimp cocktail was mediocre and prepared way ahead of time as the ice was melting into the shrimp and the cocktail sauce was partly icey. Service and food needs to be stepped up.

This was our 2nd time and it was just as wonderful as the first time. It was their 10th anniversary and they gave everyone a split of champagne and free photos.
We are going back again this week and the next 2 after that to take our house guests.
