Nice Mountain Views

The restaurant is more upscale, then others in the area. The food is exceptional. The service wasn't up to par for a restaurant of this caliber. The price was very reasonable. The sweeping views of the golf course and distant mountains was nice.

poor indifferent service, so-so food, owner is one of the most unfriendly people. Decor looks like a nursing home dining room.

Not our favorite because everything has a sauce, which is popular with French cooking. This restaurant is never busy and I don't think would make it if not for seminar type meetings.

Okay, so we ate here during the "low" season when all of the "snow birds" have returned to their northern climates, which may explain the poor quality of the food at this restaurant. However, if we are going to be shelling out a lot of money for food, we should expect some quality. One person in our party had crabcakes,... More

Excellent Dining Experience. Service was great and the food was prepared as ordered. One of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. Highly recommend.

French restaurant located in clubhouse of Country Club. Chef is from France and has selected special items for his menu. They also have special evenings to celebrate the Full Moon, or French holidays. We celebrated my father's 100th birthday there with friends and family. A wonderful occasion. Lunch is also special and topped off with wonderful desserts!

We reserved a window seat by the golf course. Our waiter was exceptional. He could answer all the questions and made recommendations as well. The food just melts in your mouth.

Went here with family members. Started off with French Onion Soup that was correctly and efficiently prepared. For a main course I had calves liver. This is a make or break dish for many restaurants as they use beef liver or a lower grade quality of liver and pawn it off as calves liver. This was prepared with bacon and... More

My wife and I have coming to Green Valley for the past 3 years and must say that Lavender is the best restaurant in the area, in our opinion. We have tried most everything on the menu with never being disappointed. The only thing I would suggest is that use bigger olives in the martinis. Patti & Bill
