Went to Lavelle’s Bistro for our dinner. We ordered grilled salmon and Alaskan king crab. The crab leg was very fresh and taste delicious! Will recommend to any crab lover who plan to visit Fairbanks!

Salads are great - one of the few places with cold greens - makes for a crisp salad. Time for a menu change. Entrees are just the same. Same. Same. The special menu is insufficient.More

I wish we could change the menu too but everytime we try, even with seasonal dishes, we face an uproar of protest from those guests who come in just for that particular menu item. It's amazing how many people come in the restaurant and order...More

Very attentive staff, food delicious & well presented. A little dark inside the restaurant but it made for an intimate dinner despite the fact the others were all around us. Wine selection is extensive.

First time. We both liked our meals. The 1/2 duck was very good. My wife's Halibut was a good choice as well. The Casear salad was unimpressive. Very good bread pudding. Our server Tuesday evening was a tad slow and forgetful. Nice place overall.

Before coming down to the restaurant I had bumped into a couple who had just finished their dinner at Lavelle's Bistro. I asked how it was and they gave a lukewarm review. They said that salmon was dry and the steak wasn't that great. I...More

Very classy restaurant with fine dining. Professional waitstaff, lovely decor, and the food was delicious. Bundt brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce! Highly recommend, frequented by locals.

We will be open on Christmas Eve but not on Christmas Day and we only open at 4:30. We are hosting our 18th annual New Years Eve Party on the 31st and it is always a hugely good time. Hope to see you there. Frank, Owner
