I have never had a bad experience at Lavelle's. One of the best appetizers is the baked brie! Its truly to die for. The main courses and the specials have never disappointed. Lovely wine list and exceptional service.

Filet mignon made to perfection and the accompanying Gorgonzola risotto was awesome! I cleared my plate so when the mascarpone dessert arrived I was so full I had to take it home with me.... Totally worth the money!!

We had dinner at the bar because we had no reservation and they were very busy. Specialty cocktail was excellent as were the dumplings. Husband has beef tips and it was excellent. I had the duck and it was good also (beef was better). Bar staff was excellent and chatty to us even though they were extremely busy.

We were in Fairbanks for the day and asked around for diner. Lavelle's came as the first recommendation. We just walked in with no reservation and were seated right away. Service was very good and friendly. I had the Alaskan King Crab legs. 1 lb of meaty crab legs, excellent. Would definitely come again.

We lived in Fairbanks for 5 years so we tried most of the restaurants. Others have more Alaskan menus, but Lavelle's is usually the best food you will find. They're signature dish is rack of lamb which was good, but my favorite was always the filet. It was perfectly cooked & seasoned! Appetizers & desserts were great too. They have... More

We went there twice on our recent visit. Decent food, great drinks including their homemade cream soda and root beer! Worth going here! American standard foods

Our family celebrated our grandsons second birthday and our annual visit. We always go to Lavelles for their great food and variety. I had the halibut appetizer with a large salad that I shared with my husband. The halibut was on skewers with 9 large chunks of lightly battered fish. Not greasy at all. My son had the perfectly prepared... More

The evening decor is great for fine dinning. I like the pecans salad, and the lamb is excellent. I also like to order the special flight of wine. It's a fun way to explore different wines.

I must say that I was didn't think Fairbanks would have a restaurant that is this good! Celebrating restaurants birthdays is a family tradition in my husband's family and we've been away from home for 2 years. So yesterday for his 30th birthday I wanted something special. The food was to die for! The broth from the mussels was good... More

Went to Lavelle's over the weekend, on a date night with my husband! I started with a Thai martini and calamari. Soooo good! My husband loves the fresh bread and whipped butter that comes to the table. I like to order off the nightly specials sheet, because it's usually something new and different. I ordered the mystery white wine, and... More
