I had the mushroom corrisont it is very flavorful. We shared the crembule. It is big enough for two to share. We like the place, except our waitress does not... More

My wife and I walked into Lavendou for drinks and apps on a whim. I am not typically a fan of restaurants in Dallas strip mall areas but I am sooo glad we did. OUTSTANDING service. REAL NATIVE FRENCH speaking staff. We had the escargot and a mushroom pastry dish and both were awesome. Chocalate soufflé - AMAZING Great and... More

Once you get inside this strip mall restaurant it is delightful. The ambiance is very European and the back room especially is very cosy and perfect for an intimate dinner or even a group. We were a little put off by the approach to the restaurant in a rather eclectic bunch of storefronts, but the food and the service makes... More

Lovely early dinner before theater. Started with the quail salad, which could be a light meal all by itself. Generous pieces of quail with a savory glaze I shared with my husband. He started with the carpaccio, which was beautifully presented, as you can see in my photo. We had the special fish with the crab meat and the vegetarian... More

We visited with another family to celebrate a birthday for High Tea. It was everyone's first experience at Lavendou and we were all very pleased with our meal! Our service was excellent and we really enjoyed the desserts with the tea. I was not a huge fan of the little sandwiches, but I don't really eat bread and definitely not... More

Took my wife, daughter, and friends to afternoon high tea. We had a wonderful time! Food was delicious..especially the scones and the tea was delightful! Lovely bistro despite being located in a shopping center with a condom superstore. A bit overpriced, which is why I gave it only 4 stars. Otherwise, would definitely go again!

This was my first trip to Lavendou, so I went online to see the menu and dress code; I was excited! However, the reality was a total let-down. 1. We went on a Saturday -- and the crowd and noise made conversation quite difficult. 2. Even with a reservation, our table location, near the EXIT, was simply the pits --... More

Love going to Lavendou - Whether it's for a personal date or a business lunch or dinner, the experience is consistently great. The food is well prepared and the wine list reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and makes us feel at home. Pierre and his team always make sure we have a good time. Can't wait to go... More

Have been going there for years. The food is always excellent. The staff knows the clients. The place is great for a business meal, a lunch with friends or a fancy dinner. They also do catering.

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.
