Had a wonderful time at the Lavendar Bistro for our second meal here. The atmosphere is beautiful as their patio is excellent for dining in the evening. Service was great and so was the food. Had a great time and will be back.

We went for dinner and sat at a lovely table on the patio. The ambiance is beautiful but the food and service is average at best. Not worth the price they charge. Halibut special was over cooked and dried out. The flatiron steak was over...More

We treated ourselves to a lovely dinner at Lavender Bistro at the end of a long road trip, and couldn't have picked a more delightful and lively spot. The restaurant's unassuming (and rather hard to find) front opens onto an elegant dining room and a...More
