    We have been coming to Lavendars for years, this was the first time we could not have been more disappointed. I specifically asked for a table near the fountain we ended up in the most far corner of the restaurant facing a wall. The waiter was so overwhelmed with too many tables. Very slow service. Not a great way to celebrate our anniversary and with out of town guests. Very bad experience!

    I had a wonderful birthday dinner! My wife and I were initially seated very near a large party lingering well after their dinner with one individual who was especially 'loud' preventing us from having a normal conversation... We were delightfully surprised when we requested to be relocated for a quieter table. The accommodation to relocate us was greeted graciously and we were happily seated at a nice table for two. I would highly recommend Lavender Bistro as the best place for a birthday celebration. Exceptional food, service, and ambiance... Thank you, Jim & Beverly

    Shrimp for the shrimp cocktail was a weird texture and the shrimp were very small for the price. Also don’t cover the cocktail sauce with a ton of lettuce. The lettuce choice for the Anjou pear salad should be spinach or butter lettuce, not romaine.

    This was our first time at Lavender and we enjoyed it very much. The food was good and the service was great. We especially loved the bacon wrapped dates as an appetizer. Entrees were good too but the desserts were just ok. La Quinta is a bit far from our home in Rancho Mirage so it will probably be while before we return.

    Wonderful experience for an important client dinner we hosted. Major thanks to the staff for their attentiveness and for giving us an absolutely perfect table. Private enough to give it an intimate gathering feel, but also close to the lively action outside on the patio. Great food, great time. Well done all around.

    Lovely place but we were seated waaay out on the perimeter of the courtyard and really disliked our table. It resulted in poor service and cold food since we were seated so far away. Recommend anyone ask for a table more in the middle or just not go.

    Lavendar Bistro is by far my favorite restaurant in the Coachella Valley. The food is delicious, our waiter Mario made our evening fun and he was engaging to talk to, and you cannot beat the ambiance. Whether it’s a romantic evening for two or a family Easter Brunch, Lavendar goes above & beyond & I can’t wait to return!

    Beautiful Valentine’s Dinner. Staff was accommodating and found a nice little table for two so we could be outside. The ambiance is always great @ Lavenders with twinkling lights, plenty of heaters and live music. Gave food a 4 because my short ribs although delicious arrived to the table and weren’t super hot - food temp is a big deal to me. I could have asked to have it heated up but considering it was Valentine’s Day and they were packed I didn’t make a deal of it. Again super tasty. The service is always top notch at Lavenders they definitely have a great “team” approach and it absolutely shows. Great night overall especially on one of the busiest nights of the year ❤️
