Description: Lavendou, a retreat into the French countryside - a place where life is savored as much as the food. Lavendou is thoroughly French, from the inviting decor to the gracious service and authentic cuisine. But don't expect it to be pretentious. Owner Pascal Cayet is dedicated to providing service that is friendly and efficient. And you will find Chef Francois Soyez's menu to be deliciously approachable. Serving the lighter fare of Southern France, Lavendou offers many items to tempt your taste buds.

I always enjoy this restaurant. Good food and good service. Tonight I had the linguine pasta with spinach, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes with added shrimp (extra) along with their signature french onion soup. Always delicious. My only complaint is that it's too dark. I had to go into the lighted bar to read the menu.

Excellent food, excellent service and excellent ambiance. What more could you ask for? Whether you are opting for a special occasion or just a really fine meal, Lavendou is a definite choice. This is not our first outing with them and definitely will not be our last. My husband and I have eaten all over the world and this is... More

When a restaurant is almost 20 years old, and continues to fill up on a Saturday night, they must be doing something (or everyhing) right. Lavendou is that restaurant. Very French, but not very formal. Excellent food, gracious service, and warm ambience. You won't see a lot of experimental dishes here, but you will see traditional favorites all done well,... More

My wife was about to have surgery which would prevent eating solid food for the next six weeks. Where should we eat this "last" meal? After very little thought, we both said "Lavendou"! One of the best restaurant meals we've ever had and we've enjoyed meals all over the US, in the UK, France, Belgium and other places. Highly recommend... More

I always look forward to our next meal at Lavendou. Each visit makes us want to come again and again. The service is always excellent and the restaurant doesn't feel stuffy like some other restaurants of this caliber. Try it. You'll love it.

Nestled in a hidden neighborhood, this French Bristo will amaze you both in service and taste. Both the front and back of the house are to be highly praised. Table settings are very attractive and the service great. Even when the server seemed to not understand my request the owner was on the spot to solve the misunderstanding. The food... More

Six of us went to dinner on September 19, 2014. I have lived in the Dallas/Plano area for over 14 years. I am very sorry that I have not eaten here before. WOW, what delicious food! And the wine selection was fabulous. We all tried a bit of each other's entrees. The pork tenderloin, lamb, tournedos and fish were spectacular.... More

This is truly a great place to impress your date or just have a great night out. The food was prepared so carefully, my steak was exactly as ordered, the service was incredible. Did I tell you the food (and the choices) are excellent! Excellent wine list!

It is always a wonderful experience to visit. All of the staff and management is friendly. Our glasses and bread basket are always full. Service and food are very good. We order escargot every time and try something new for the entree. We have enjoyed everything so far. The lavender tea is addictive.

Went to this restaurant as they were participating in the Restaurant Week event. A portion of the proceeds goes to the local food bank. The restaurant was very busy, as expected for Friday night. We had reservations and were seated after a brief wait. The staff were very attentive and the food was cooked perfectly. I will definitely return. I... More
