Went to Lavelle's over the weekend, on a date night with my husband! I started with a Thai martini and calamari. Soooo good! My husband loves the fresh bread and whipped butter that comes to the table. I like to order off the nightly specials sheet, because it's usually something new and different. I ordered the mystery white wine, and... More

When going to Lavelle's for the first time, we set our expectations pretty low, since we wouldn't normally go to a hotel restaurant when looking for something special. Looking over the menu, I was undecided on what to order because everything sounded spectacular, so I asked the waiter what I should get. When he said, "the chicken," I didn't really... More

Still remember the first time we ate there in 2007. We used to walk there and sit at the bar and have wine and appetizers. Couldn't asked for much better. Love the shrimp with lobster sauce. If you can join the wine club and enjoy the Tuesday events. We have spent many New Years Eves there, what a lot of... More

One of the better places to eat in Fairbanks , even if it is in a hotel. Very diverse selection of wines and menu.

The salmon is good, should try it if you are fish lover. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very good, always full house and worthwhile to stop there to have a full meal before going to see the Northern light !

Always great food. The best place for oysters and Lamb. The bourbon shrimp and seared tuna are excellent

Lavelle's Bistro was recommended to us and we are glad we went. Had a few minutes wait for a table but we had a fun waitress who didn't rush us and helped us make choices. Good food, good service and good environment.

We came in for dinner and were told there was about an hour wait...but if we wanted to sit at the bar there were... More

We unfortunately had time only for some appetizers before heading out. The ambiance, the food and the waitstaff all were excellent. We had heard wonderful things about this restaurant from people who live in Fairbanks, and we weren't disappointed. When we go back to Alaska we will definitely stop there for a full meal.

Great menu and a good atmosphere, but have been hit or miss on the food. The vast majority of the time the food has been outstanding, but sometimes they just miss the mark. Still one of the best meals in Fairbanks. I'll keep going back.

Thank Brian D
