We will definitely go back and also try lunch some time.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back!!Having driven by several times, my wife and I decided to try Café Provence after reading the Zagat reviews. So glad we did! And, wish we didn't wait to discovery this neighborhood gem. Our seating was earlier in the evening (5:45)and the crowd was a mix of young and old (a high school prom couple to senior citizen retired). We could tell that many of the customers were regulars as the wait-staff knew them by name. Overall - GREAT food. We had the salmon and scallops for starters. And the veggie plate and salmon for dinner. The apple tart dessert was wonderful as was the Millionaire Coffee. The service was fantastic. The atmosphere was friendly and neighborly. We'll be back4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat place to talk and eat!Cafe Provence was perfect for a rare evening---a one to one with my sister who I don't see often due to "geographic" reasons. We were able to share and take our time---the service and quality of food was absolutely great. It was nice to be in a place that is grown up oriented but not stuffy. Would highly recommend it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply awesome!One of the best restaurants in Kansas City! The food is consistantly amazing and the service is as good as you will find anywhere.

Wish I lived nearer the location, ad I would go often as my favorite place.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our third wedding anniversarIt was our third wedding anniversary, and we were not disappointed. The waitress was very attentive, yet unobtrusive. My wife had a soup du jour, cauliflower, and it was excellent -- very fresh and clean. I had the classic French onion, and it was spot-on. We ordered a special, which was grouper, as well as the Cote de Boeuf Braisee. My wife loved her grouper, and I can say the same for the Braisee. The greens were suited nicely to the shortrib, while the onions, potatoes, and accompanying sauce rounded out the taste profile. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Gateau au Chocolat, while my Tarte au Citron was wonderful, meaning that it wasn't too sweet. I enjoy tart lemon flavor, and it can be hard to find in a restaurant.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was wonderful. The foodThis was wonderful. The food was delicious. I had the scallops and the sauce was delicious. My friend had the quiche and loved it. My other friend had the chicken with mushroom sauce, it too was delicious. Have to go back b/c I am going to try everything on the menu but salmon....quiet, charming and tasty...no wonder it was listed in USA Today's top 10 list.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnifique!My wife and I recently returned from a week in St. Martin and St Barth, this local establishment absolutely rivaled any meal we had in that week. The service was beyond compare, and we left feeling like we had known the staff for years. The food was amazing at every course. The setting was perfect, intimate seating. The bartender, The wait staff, the owner, the chef, all turned out to be a family, and it showed as we felt we had been invited to dinner rather than reserving a table. Can’t wait to return!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ambiance of aOutstanding ambiance of a family owned restaurant and all the servers are family members. The food is outstanding. The restaurant is not large and has a distinctive, welcoming personality. I drive 80 miles round trip to dine at this restaurant. That should tell you something about how good it is.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service,Excellent food and service, I'm looking forward to my next visit.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated our AnniversaryWe celebrated our Anniversary and had a wonderful meal!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe taste and presentationThe taste and presentation of the food was wonderful!

We love this restaurant.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experience. TheFabulous experience. The food was exquisite: well- prepared, creative, flavorful, not too heavy. The service was outstanding. The dining area was cozy, intimate, well-designed. It is clearly one of the better, if not the best, French restaurants in town. We had the stuffed mushrooms, a cheese plate which was generous and paired with fruits and accompaniments to delight the tastebuds. We then enjoyed the scallop entree which was heavenly, well-cooked, and just the right amount of sauce. My son had the salmon with puff pastry which was light, delicate and flavorful. The desserts were so well-prepared, that even though I am not generally a dessert person, I was devouring every last bite. No to be missed!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Easter lunch.We went for Easter lunch. It was absolutely lovely. Everything was wonderful and really did remind me of restaurants in villages in France. The endive blue cheese salad was the best I've ever had.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed! Unpretentious, veryEnjoyed! Unpretentious, very pleasant staff, and excellent food.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMChef and restaurant are gainingChef and restaurant are gaining terrific local praise. I couldn't wait to check it out. I was not disappointed but was not taken to a "whole different level" of dining either. For Kansas City, this is about as good as it gets. Unfortunately, that's not saying a whole lot either. This is good food prepared very well. My daughter had the filet and it was extremely good. I had the veal and thought it was good. Steak portion was good. Veal portion was on the small side but typical for french food. Mushroom appetizer was perfect, and the desserts were really, really good. I only do decaf at night and they had very good french press decaf. It was perfect with my creme caramel. Great spot for a special occasion.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a wonderful neighborhoodThis is a wonderful neighborhood French restaurant that is great for lunch or dinner!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful "food" - doesn'tWonderful "food" - doesn't do it justice.

Our visit this week reminded us we were long overdue. Great meal & excellent service.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I celebrated herMy wife and I celebrated her birthday at Cafe Provence. We had been here several years before and had a nice meal, but this visit was exceptional. Both of us enjoyed every bit of the meal. The chicken dish was perfectly prepared (moist on the inside with crackling delicious skin)and was one of the very best pieces of poultry I've ever had at a restaurant. The menu was seasonal and fresh. The service was friendly and efficient. It was our best dining out experience in Kansas City in several years and reminded me a bit of outings years ago at the long gone Metropolis and Cafe Maison. We will be returning soon.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFrench FoodEating aty cafe Provence is like eating at a good friends own home. The family and staff welcome you with open arms and want your experience to be memorable.1/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friend & I each had theMy friend & I each had the trout special - very nice ! I like Provence very much & each here quite a bit. It's a small, lovely restaurant - perfect when you don't want the loud, large restaurants. I did think the wine by the glass was a bit overpriced especially when compared to other restaurants (I eat out alot.); because of the price I almost didn't order wine with lunch, but did in spite of the price.11/29/2012 12:00:00 AM
