Evening dinner meal

Thus place is amazing. Fabulous staff, wonderful wine selection and delicious sesfood. Try the honey apple halibut or the scallops in risto. Loved the food and service. A bit spendy for our meal but every once in a while you just have to give yourself that luxery.

I've lived in Fairbanks for five years and Lavelles is hands down my favorite restaurant. Their consistency while evolving is what I appreciate about them. When I go to Lavelles I know my meal will be satisfying and that the atmosphere will be enjoyable. Typically I order the same thing every time at restaurants but not with Lavelles. With that...

I love this restaurant for date night! This is my husbands and mine favorite place to go to for a quiet adult dinner. Great place for dates and to hang out with friends not so family friendly. The food is wonderful and their wine list is amazing, so many good wines! Their prices are a bit expensive.

I had pan seared halibut and my wife ate a seafood pasta dish. They both tasted great. I would recommend this place. We will definitely eat here again.

Although I never made it past the bar seating and the appetizer menu, I found Lavelles quite appealing. I had heard rumor that it was the up and coming hot spot in town, and it performed to its reputation. The restaurant appeared a bit high end but accommodated us solo casual travelers well. I was made to feel comfortable by... More

Great Asian chicken salad with fried wontons. My husband ordered the flatbread pizza and it too was excellent. Very busy place with good service and excellent food.

Had my La Velle's Martini to begin with. The blue cheese stuffed olives are great! Had the Halibut. Good but a little dry for my taste. My buddy said his was moist so we will give them a pass. We liked the sourdough bread. Scallops and risotto for one and Scallops and salad for another. Both raved. Ribeye and potatoes... More

I was staying in the SpringHill Suites and Lavelle's Bistro was attached to the hotel. It is not affiliated with Marriott. I went in late and it was PACKED!
