Beautiful patio with lighted trees - very romantic. The food is delicious and served with a very professional air. Wait staff are appropriately attentive but don't hover. A dining experience not to be missed!

The outdoor dining at Lavender offers a romantic intimate setting among the canopy from the trees and tiny white lights. The food is spectacular as the chef expertly crafts each meal and the service is impeccable. I strongly recommend Lavenders Bistro for any occasion.

First time trying this amazing restaurant & hope we get another opportunity to go again. Our experience was magical from the time we walked in the door until we left. I ordered the pork entre and it was scrumptious. May be the best meal I have ever eaten.

We have been coming here for more than five years and have never been disappointed with our experiences. Most of the tables for dining are located within an enclosed area in the middle of the restaurant. This seclusion combined with subdued lighting and music have made this a superior spot for a quiet or romantic dinner. Of course, atmosphere isn't... More

It was magical and the lights on the trees, the guitarist playing romantic music and the food was soooo good. My husband had a smile on his face all through dinner. He loved the SteaK Tartare...
