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.

“As good as Paris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I took my wife to Lavendou for her birthday and we were pleasantly surprised at the true authenticity of both the food and atmosphere.

The service was excellent and the food was truly to die for. The subtle and delicate flavorings of the meal were complimented by a fine selection of French wines. Having just returned from France a few months previously it was a welcome reminder of the trip and excellent cuisine of Paris and the outlying areas.

“Great French Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We went to Lavendou in Dallas for my birthday and we had great food, attentive service, and no wait. We went on a Monday and it was perfect. The food was very flavorful and they has a nice French wine list. We were in France a few months before and wanted to recapture the French experience and Lavendou was the place to do it. I highly recommend Lavendou.

“My Local Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is my "go to" choice for the neighborhood. I can count my commute in seconds rather than minutes, but proximity is not the only draw. I love everything on the menu. I go there to meet the girls for lunch. I go their for special occasions. I go for date night. It's a one restaurant fits all kind of place.

Did I mention that I love the food? A daily quiche, a daily crepe and at night a souffle. I'm not that much of a soup person, but I adore the salmon bisque and cream of asparagus. The escargot are always good. The desserts are yummy.

And the service. I find it better at lunch than at dinner, but I've never had bad service. Go here!! You'll love it.

“Saturday tea time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I always enjoy the atmosphere and the food. I was surprised how many people filled the restaurant on Saturday's for afternoon tea! The portion sizes are just right. The service is the absolute best.
