Venison special was the bomb!
Amazing. Lavender was an absolute delight. The patio seems magical with trees with lights wrapped around the trunks and more lights strung overhead. A musician is playing get songs from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. His volume is perfect to be enjoyed while still able to easily visit with your dinning party. At one point he played “Way you look tonight” and I thought I was in the backyard wedding reception from Father of the Bride.
What about the food and service. Service was friendly and timely. Tables were quickly bussed and readied for the next guests. Drinks were refilled and plates were cleared promptly all without disruption. Many great variety with salads and entrees. Accommodating to celiac / gluten free needs. Our dinner party enjoyed fish, chicken, elk and crab cakes. Everyone said their dish was delicious.
The servers were too busy so attention to our table was lacking.
Wonderful with great ambiance. A must fora special occasion.
Beautiful place with great food service was good but before dessert never came to get our order took awhile
Had another great night outdoors at Lavender. The food was wonderful and so was our waitress. After our initial dinner a couple years ago that was all around a bad experience, we have had wonderful dinners here. Highly recommend!
Beautiful. Great atmosphere and the live music was terrific.
Lavender Bistro is a truly special spot in the desert. The menu is varied and preparations are excellent. Live entertainment adds to the lovely ambiance in the courtyard and the lively bar area. The only weak spot was when we had a pre-dinner cocktail in the bar. Our server asked if we had a reservation for dinner and let us know that we would need to settle with her before moving to the dining room. Of course; no problem. However, we were approached 4 times by different servers over little more than 20 minutes to check on us, and our original server came over when my husband was signing the check to confirm that he was, indeed, signing it. It’s unfortunate if they have a problem with patrons skipping out on bar tabs, but management needs to figure out a more gracious and unobtrusive way to handle it.
Great, as usual. One of our favorite places in the desert.
We asked the waiter to ensure time between applies and entrees. Perhaps we asked him too late but it was obvious the entree was prepared and set under a heat lamp as the sauce had that telltale glaze so indicative of heat lampung. We will make sure our instructions are more timely next visit. Otherwise the ambiance wins us over.
