Probably our best Valentines ever!! Everything was perfect!
It was the best Valentine’s Day the service was perfect the table was perfect and the food was wonderful
Have been to Lavenders many times and always had a pleasant experience. Always sat outside, but tried inside this time and were placed right next to a very loud couple even though the rest of the large room was empty, and a hopefully quiet date night turned into a struggle to hear each other. They easily could have sat us further apart. The menu was limited to accommodate Valentines Day and the choices were not good for me. The staff hovered to clear the table, again even though we were just two of four people in the entire room. Very, very annoying. Overall cost was exorbitant. Sorry Lavenders. You blew it this time.
Dining at the Lavender Bistro is always enjoyable.....elegant ambiance, interesting menu and attentive service. It's our "go to" place for any special occasion as well as entertaining out-of-town guests.
Very romantic evening. Decorations and lighting on the patio were spectacular. Electronic piano and voice entertainment was perfectly played in the background by a live musician. Great food. Perfect evening.
Thoroughly enjoyed our early Valentine’s Day celebration. Seated in the outdoor garden area at, unfortunately, a very busy corner table near the waiter’s station. Not many tables for two available this evening. Waiter recommended the calamari appetizer which we shared - ample portion, enough for 3, really. Split a Cesar salad which, again, was more than ample for two. Hubby had the recommended Grilled Pork Chop which was a huge chop perfectly done and I had the rack of lamb, also perfectly done, although somewhat disappointing that it was served at room temp. It was a cool evening and the heat lamp ran out of propane during our entree. Interestingly, the waiter also had to tend to replacing the tank...not what you’d expect at a “high end” restaurant. All in all, enjoyable evening and, as luck would have it, most bottled wines are half price on Tuesdays so we were pleasantly surprised when the check came.
First timer! Definitely a go to. The food was amazing! The menu has plenty of variety. If you're on a budget I'd go elsewhere because when you look at this menu your going to want everything! The servers were on point and ready to serve you they were also very organized. The ambience just makes you happy if you sit outside which I recommend. There was something about this place that I will return soon. The owner of this restaurant should be proud. I've been to a few higher end restaurant's and have been disappointed but not this one! Loved it!
Due to the wind we decided to dine indoors. We were seated in a corner with windows on both sides which invited the outdoors in. Both couples split the House Lavender salad which was very easy and more than enough. The bread was tasty too. The duck and chicken were both ver enjoyable. The biggest disappointment that our waiter didn't check on us often enough. We waited for our meal quite a while and a large party seated after us received their salads/appetizers before us. The complimentary dessert for my birthday was a nice touch.
We choose to eat inside as winds strong that night. Would love to return to enjoy their beautiful outdoor dining garden.
THE best restaurant while we were in Palm Springs. Can't wait to go back. Make your reservations early. They couldn't accommodate us early evening outside but they saved us a table next to the outside. They thought of everything. Wait staff was very attentive but not constantly bothering you. Food was impeccable! I can't say enough good things about this restaurant.
The food was mediocre at best This is the second time we experienced at least one of the four meals being unsatisfactory . For the price it certainly is not worth it. Much ado about nothing.
Steak was sent back as it was not cooked to order. Side of asparagus tips with parmigiana cheese ordered was forgotten. After relaying this to the server, whole asparagus spears were delivered without he cheese. Another order was put in but came back as full spears with cheese. Servers were polite and apologetic but would benefit from additional training. While making the reservation, a note was made that this was a birthday/anniversary occasion. No mention of this was made by the staff or servers. Why ask this question only for it to be ignored?
Additionally, although handicapped parking was provided in the parking lot, illegally parked vehicles prohibited van access to a person using an electric wheelchair. These spots should be better marked and lit or policed.
Overall experience was very disappointing.
Lavender Bistro never disappoints. We come to the Desert every year for 2 weeks and always make sure we dine there. Love the food, ambience and setting. We highly recommend it.
Lavender Bistro had the very best ambiance we have ever experienced on a patio setting. The food was also fantastic! The live music was beautiful at just the right volume. Loved everything about this restaurant!
Very nice place to have a date and setting was nice for a Romantic night out. Will return again.
