le lapin à la cabriole : rabbit "à la cabriole" (literally a leaping rabbit)
une cabriole : a caper, a cabriole, an agile jump nom féminin
The phrase à la appears all over French menus. It means "with", "cooked with" or "containing". For example: Le poulet à l’orange (chicken cooked with orange). However, in this case, we should take the expression with a pinch of salt. Lapin à la cabriole is simply a rabbit that is leaping around (doing "cabrioles").
