This is the perfect place for any celebration or to just have an elegant meal in an elegant yet simple setting. The delicious selections are varied so it is not difficult to find something that is just right. Yes, we had to have some of our main courses saved for another meal so we could indulge in the perfect dessert.... More

We decided to eat our Thanksgiving Dinner here this year, as we heard it was good last year, and we were too late last year to get a table. The special menu was a three-course meal with three choices for each course. It wasn't difficult to find something we both liked, in fact we shared our first course dishes since... More

I've been told the restaurants in Green Valley are good,but not always, exceptional. However, we have discovered the exception! We visited for Sunday Brunch-and have promised ourselves it will be the first of many wonderful dining experiences. The service was attentive and responsive. The view of the golf course and the mountains is lovely. But nothing takes precedence to the... More

I joined friends from the area at this interesting restaurant on the local golf course. The menu was interesting-not the usual fare and reflected the chef's country of origin--French. Well prepared meal with interesting twists on the familiar. Our waiter was helpful and attentive. In all a very nice evening.

We went to a meeting there with preset menus. My wife had the salmon, I the beef. They were good, better than most institutional meals, but not up to what we expect to eat there. Our main issue was the waiter who was truly rude and unhelpful.

We have had several events there and the owners were so unhelpful and rude that both groups I was involved with decided to never go back there again. I also went as a diner another time and the service was so terrible my husband had to speak to the wait staff several times

Lavender is consistently good. I have been going there for 3-4 years. I guess one thing that bothers me is as often as I have been there, and many of my friends, they don't have a personal sort of greeting so it's as if it's your first time in. The rustic style pate is always yummy. They have a decent... More

This is another restaurant that is close to our house and offers the standard traditional French menu. It is the only French restaurant in Green Valley and we have found the food to be very good. The only complaint that we have with all of the restaurants in Green Valley is the wine list. This is a retirement community and... More

I have NEVER been treated with such disrespect with such consistency by restaurant staff. Food was good, not great. Graciela is one if the most arrogant women I have worked with. No grace. No looking for solutions. Just her defending herself. I suspect her staff would be good if she would let them do their job. I predict this restaurant... More

One of the best Restaurants in So. Arizona. They have never disappointed us in the many years that we have dined there. The food is to die for, especially the sauces. Everything is always served at the correct temperature. The atmosphere is very typical of french decor. a very relaxing dining experience, never rushed. Reasonably priced for a restaurant of...
