Great dinner as many reviews reported. We had the surf and turf and it was cooked as ordered. Very pricey if I go back it would be on Sunday when corking fee is free, or Tuesday with bottle wine is 1/2 price. Also would request closer to the music.

We have been to Lavender Bistro last year. A wonderful dinner in the patio which was very good. This year we felt it was quite cold outside and we choose to sit inside. There was heating outside. Hence there were very busy inside and outside. The dining room is very nice and cozy but the tables are very close to... More

This place is wonderful for a great meal and for a special occasion. The beautiful outside courtyard has a lovely ambiance and inside dining is also comfortable in the dining room or covered patio. The service here is impeccable, as is all their dishes. We went New Years Eve for an exquisite pre-fix meal. All was perfect, from our salad... More

This restaurant was a top recommendation by our Marriott concierge and she was right! Reservations are a must if you'd like to sit out in the beautiful, lit outdoor patio. Luckily there are many seats outside. Service from beginning to end was wonderful. Servers were attentive and didn't miss a detail. Food and drinks were all delicious!! A wonderful way... More

The lighted trees really set the mood. Great service and the food is wonderful. Don't go if it rains, you will get wet...mostly outdoor seating. Love it, time after time!

Wonderful food and presentation. Nice music in the background. Only complaint would be that for the business dinner they crammed us in at the table and it was difficult to move. Next time give people a little more space an perhaps loose one table to accommodate a big group

Perfection! Sitting outside at this excellent restaurant is magical. On Christmas Day, it's a dream only Santa can bring! The wait staff is well trained and performs in unison like a well oiled machine. Menu options are well planned and make your selection difficult but exceptional regardless of choice. Wine selections are extensive and fitting for the food. Aromas of... More
