A word from Brasserie Provence
Brasserie Provence is Louisville's first French brasserie! We offer casual, upscale dining and traditional French cuisine with a Provençal flair. A large selection of regional and classical French dishes are expertly prepared by Chef de Cuisine Edoardo Bacci, and offer something for everyone at an affordable price. Brasserie Provence offers Southern French wine by the glass, signature cocktails, French, Belgian and local Kentucky beer, and select bottles of wine from Provence and the northwestern US.

Guests can choose between ample seating in the brasserie-style bar, the warm and inviting dining room, and the seasonal outdoor patio. Parties of ten to twelve will be seated at the generously sized chef's table, and parties or meetings of up to 40 can be accommodated in the private dining room.

Join us Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner to experience a taste of Provence!

    My husband and I went to the restaurant to celebrate our 42nd wedding anniversary. It was a great meal and wonderful evening. Thanks to Guy (the owner) for coming by and wishing us a happy anniversary. It was exactly what I expected. Lovely evening.

    Exquisite pairing of foods and condiments as in the special sandwich of the day -- pork with fig preserves; absolutely delicious roasted chicken with the best gravy ever (although to the French, I guess it's "sauce"); delightful, well-informed server; charming owner who stopped by each table to see how things were and stayed for a brief chat. We'll definitely return.

    The phrase "too much of a good thing" doesn't apply to French cooking, as Brasserie Provence ably demonstrates. My wife, son, and I enjoyed an excellent and reasonably priced meal in an amiable atmosphere with an attentive, but not too attentive, wait staff. From aperitifs to desserts, the pleasure was all ours.

    The welcome was warm, the service was attentive and the food was excellent. All of which would have made for a wonderful dining experience except for the loud and obnoxious retirement party which went on in the main restaurant area for most of our meal. Such groups should be moved to another area of the restaurant, we could barely hear our table conversation over the loud group celebrating next to us.

    Yesterday was my first visit to Provence and we loved it.A beautifully decorated restaurant and our lunch was excellent and the service was good.Our waitress was very helpful in choosing a wine for us to enjoy and was just attentive enough without being pushy.. The menu had many good choices that i'm looking forward to trying some day.Sometime in the next several weeks I would like to go there for dinner.It would be a perfect place to have a family reunion dinner or any special occasion dinner for a large group.

    This WAS a great place after it opened. Now it's just average. Service was fair at best, not as good as before! I believe they are having a shortage of bread and butter. The mussels were the smallest I've ever had. The sauce while o.k. was not what it use to be. The pork was good if you like lavender, my wife didn't. The chicken was cooked just right but with little flavor. The steak was very good. I hope they get their act together in the kitchen. For a high price restaurant it did not make the grade!

    We have enjoyed dining at Provence each time bot for lunch and dinner. The food presentation is very good and most notable are the specials like salads prepared from the owners garden. This feels very European to me. It is quiet enough to have a conversation with someone at your table and not have to lean forward to hear them.

    Brasserie Provence is one of my favorite spots in town. Great for date night but not too formal for a nice relaxing meal with friends. Guy obviously loves owning a restaurant and is very proud of his menu, he takes time to talk to each table. Will be back again as soon as possible!

    My husband and I went for a date and it was a lovely night with great wine and very good food. The service was slow and it made us feel just like we were in France. :) I got the salmon and it was very fresh and moist. My husband got the veal and french onion soup and it was delicious.

    I have been there several times and have been very well pleased. The mussels are great but three times I have ordered they have been not opened or have been empty so I never really received a full order. I had the salmon special and it was over cooked but had a good flavor. Also I think $6.00 for a cup of coffee is out of thepark on price.

    We have a delicious dinner of moules and frites with a un-oaked French Chardonnay and flashed fried delicate zucinni blossoms. The owner was attentive and came by to check on us several times. Service was good but not intrusive. Really close to being in France at a brassiere! It was quieter than most brassieres I've been to in France.

    We had already eaten dinner elsewhere, but not liking the dessert options at the prior place, decided to venture elsewhere. a neighbor had recommended Brasserie Provence so we booked and stopped in to try it dessert. Wife and I ordered the L'Opera, dark choc, almond, coffee cake and the La Tronpezienne, butter cream in a sugar brioche) along with a french press coffee for 2. Real and raw sugar both served in cubes, appealing. La Tronpezienne was our more preferred option in the end but both were enjoyed. the atmosphere was romantic, and we commented on how we liked the black and white still pictures on our way out. Menu looked great, will definitely be back soon to try the full experience.

    After travelling to France, it has been difficult to find the kind of taste experience we had in France in Louisville. The Brasserie Provence is as close as we have found. Excellent wine, great food and superior service. The owner is very friendly and informative about his deep understanding of the French culture and cuisine. We highly reccomend this restaurant for any dining occasion.
