A French Cordon Bleu Chef in Green Valley? Yes! And you can tell the difference. Pricey...yes...but not as pricey as Paris, that's for sure! Chef even cooks sweetmeats, if you call in advance, talk with them, they will order...and cooked to perfection. MY ABSOLUTELY FAVORITE PLACE IN GREEN VALLEY. If you love gourmet food, this is your place.

We went based on a recommendation from a friend. It was supposed to be an excellent fine dining restaurant with an authentic French chef. First off, we were not impressed with the decor. The service was average. Although the scallops and lamb chops were cooked well, the side dishes were sub-par. The bread they served could have easily been mistaken... More

Tucked away in the golf course building is a French themed restaurant. I thought that the service was very slow but maybe that's how they do it in France! But this is not France this is Arizona. There was the young lady walking around with a device for capturing stray flies which I thought was very interesting. Beautiful views of... More

Each course from our appetizer of Oysters Rockefeller, to my fresh halibut with vermouth wine sauce and my husband's meal were perfect to the last detail including the selection of accompanying vegetables, as well our desserts of key lime pie and apple tartin. As a special surprise,... More

This is a special place with a menu featuring some unusual items not found at many restaurants. Rabbit for example. Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer is a meal in itself and delicious. The décor is simple but very nice and the glass wall windows look out on the golf course which is a lovely view.

We visited this place about 10 years ago ad enjoyed our meal. They have relocated to a beautiful setting on a golf course. The meals were excellent. The service was superb. It is pricey but worth the expense.

Came to Tucson to visit the area and an old friend who recommended Lavender for lunch. The Seaford Neptune was what I had and it was very, very delicious. Recommended. My wife ordered liver and bacon and said it was tough and tasteless, friend had a pulled BBQ sandwich and he ate it all. Ok. Two outta three. Friend picked... More

The atmosphere is classy but comfortable. Our waiter was pleasant and helpful with wine and food selections. We enjoyed our meals and dessert. We'll definitely return to try more of their unique and imaginative menu.

Took my mom to Brunch and it was wonderful! We had the Phyllo wrapped chicken breast stuffed with cranberries and Brie cheese. It had mixed veggies with it and rolls. Was very tasty. Service was really good. Hat's off to Chef Fredreic....
