“A bit of paradise in paradise.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

As a year round local I recommend Lavender Bistro often. Come a little early and enjoy the fireside lounge for an intimate cocktail then enjoy dinner on one of the best patios in the valley! And the food will not disappoint, I especially like the seafood appetizers and the apple tart!

“One of the best”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Upscale food, service and atmosphere. Not inexpensive but you will pay more for less at most other places trying to be what these folks are.

“Patio dining”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Spring is the perfect time of year to enjoy Lavender Bistro. The nights are warm and the patio setting is quiet and relaxing with music to accompany dinner. There are specialties of the chef on a daily basis and the wine list is reasonably priced.

“Beautiful, comfortable, quality.”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

While not an actual sentence, the above 3 words describe my experience at Lavender Bistro. I had the seafood linguine that was fantastic. The variety of seafoods was exceptional. The sauce that was prepared with it set of the freshness of the seafood without overpowering it. The portion size was spot on...enough to satisfy, not enough to over do.

I did venture out and try the Rye Manhattan. I determined that I'm not a "rye-guy" so proceed with caution. The wine list was nice, but a bit pricey for the vineyards and vintages listed.
