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.

My husband took me to Lavendou for my birthday and the food was amazing. We felt like we were back in France which is where my husband was born. We visit as often as we can and wish we could visit more because their food, people and culture are lovely. This is an amazing and very special restaurant and deserves... More

The food was excellent and the service very professional. The decor is very nice. Unfortunately, it was extremely noisy making conversation extremely difficult. However, it was a Saturday evening meal and the restaurant was virtually full of customers. I am not sure what management could attempt that would make the restaurant more conducive to polite conversation; perhaps it is time... More

Dined here this past weekend with good friends. All of us just returned from Provence a couple of weeks prior to eating here. It was the perfect "fix" for our French food cravings. Adorable Provençal atmosphere. Delicious food. Each of us ordered a different dish. The Escargots à la Bourguignonne are are brought to your table piping hot from the... More

I enjoyed a lovely luncheon with several women from my active senior living group. The atmosphere is country French, though not kitchy, and quiet enough to carry on a conversation. The service was attentive and competent. The food (I had chicken Florentine crepes) was excellent and beautifully presented. The prices are on the high side, but definitely worth the price.

Went to Lavendou last weekend and had a fantastic meal. Escargot, tomato salad, sole and crab, pepper filet and frites, crème brulee were prepared perfectly and all tasted wonderful. The highlight of the night was the service. Our server, Bernie, made the experience special. Attentive, knowledgeable and upbeat. It was evident that he was enjoying himself as much as were... More

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.
