Lunch with friends

Though I did not select one of the delicious sounding French entrees, I had a wonderful Salmon Caesar salad. Atlantic salmon broiled to perfection. Seafood soup ( special) was excellent as was chocolate gnocchi cake. One friend loved her seafood on her non-Cobb salad -- very nice presentation... read more

My meal was not cooked properly. Salmon with seafood stuffing, salmon was warm but the inside stuffing was cold. I asked the waitress if that was the right temp, s h e asked the ccok he said it wasn't cooked properly. My food was reheated. Instead of crediting me for having to wait twice for my meal, I was still... More

Lavender is a family run upscale restaurant with a French style menu. Chef Lange is especially good with the sauces. I like a place where they ask how you want your liver cooked - I like it pink. Graciela is a gracious hostess. Windows overlook the golf course and mountains and a great place to watch the sun go down.

New Years Eve is also my husband's birthday, so I had emailed 'way ahead after looking at the site & the menu to see if there would be a special menu for that night. I was told that there would be, but that the chef hadn't announced it yet. I emailed a few more times with no reply & there... More

Very nice restaurant. Dining room has large windows facing the golf course. Staff are very friendly. Food portions large. Have only enjoyed lunch but they are open for dinner.

Exquisitely prepared French foods by a Maître Cuisinier de France (Master Chef of France) Chef Lange. He and his wife own this lovely place. Our Newcomers group have celebrated Christmas here two years in a row as a special treat. They have a private dining room for groups which is nice.

We met our friends for Thanksgiving Day Dinner. The first thing that we experienced was the waitress we had, took 20 minutes to come to our table to take our drink order. Then it took another 15 minutes to get our lemon waters. Then, she left and said she would return to take our food order. We waited another 20... More

Our last visit was so wonderful that we wanted to see if the food was consistently good. It is! We tried different items from our last visit -- and, would definitely recommend the Fricassee de Poisson (medley of shrimp, sea scallops, salmon, sea bass -- baked over fresh spinach pappardelle with a red bell pepper coulis). The other home run... More

Chef Lange serves what was once termed French cuisine. The cuisine of Julia Child, etc. We enjoyed our dinner at Lavender after not having been there in many years. I had the salmon which was perfectly cooked and my husband had the Oaxacan duck mole, and a duck confit tamale. This was all a fusion of the French and local... More
