“Dido on best kept secret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Where am I... Downtown? Wow, what is a resturant like this doing out here? This is maybe some of the first things you maybe ask yourself when you enter this restaurant.

We had a great experience here, enjoyed the food and service. And would recommend this place for a first date, just going out with friends or a destination dinner.

“wonderful and relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Excellent very fresh menu brought to you by a Master French Chef! Only thing I would have added would have been croutons for lobster bisque and grainy mustard for the outstanding burger! Lovely place, would highly recommend!

“Rutherfordton's best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

My recent dinner at Lavender Bistro was wonderful. My husband ordered the lobster risotto and I had the bouillabaise. We ended up sharing both entrees. The service was impeccable and the wine was spectacular.We were able to dine outside on the lovely patio. I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who is willing to travel to Rutherfordton.

“Sooo disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Just not worth the money. Nothing is good expect the wine.
$130 waste. You would only like this if you just don't know good food.
Blah
