  • "From the atmosphere, the friendliness of the servers to the food, this place is always a pleasant experience. The menu changes often but the favorites remain on the menu. Cafe Provence brings the French ambiance with simple decor and delicious dishes. Both a place for a leisurely lunch or dinner with fabulous desserts."

  • "I definitely rate Cafe Provence as the most wonderful restaurant in Kansas City. Now of course, if you want a burger, or bbq you must look elsewhere. The sauces created by Daniel are so delicious. This restaurant is a treat to your senses. I have never had a dish or dessert that disappointed. Love!!!!"

  • "It's still the best restaurant in the area. My "foodie" grandson from Miami was with us for this visit and agreed that it was the best place he'd eaten in Kansas City. If you consider that he included "Oklahoma Joe's" in his assessment, you can truly understand how much he liked it!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "One of the best restaurants in the country. Their Dover sole is outstanding. We also highly recommend the Salmon, Veal Piccata and escargot. Tres bien...tres bien. We have been to Cafe Provence many times and always have the very best meal."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Food. Wine. Atmosphere. Service. All of the above were superb!the entire experience from walking in the door to leaving was amazing. It made for the perfect date! I would recommend this restaurant 1000x over!"

  • "usually frequent here once a month or so - historically just for dinner. Have expanded that into lunch too! Had the mussels this visit but the chicken with morel cream sauce is my absolute favorite."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "The ambiance was great and the meal was outstanding. The cost was a little high but it was a special occasion and it was not a surprise."

  • "Zagat named Café Provence the best restaurant in Kansas City for good reason. I have eaten there twice in the past two weeks and every dish was stellar - the filet au poivre is exceptional, as are the chicken and halibut. I highly recommend the endive salad, as well, and the passion fruit tart is incredible! The café is cozy and romantic, and there is sidewalk seating, although they allow smoking outside which was disappointing."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I don't eat out often because I am trying to economize but on special occasions I always have a lovely dinner at Cafe Provence and it seems very authentically French. We sat outside and while the view is nothing great it was very pleasant. Our waitress was charming. The mussels were perfect to share. I had a vegetable dish for my entree and it was perfect for me. My son's bouillabaisse was a bit overpriced at $30, however. We each had a souffle (one chocolate, one Grand Marnier) for dessert and they were outstanding."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "The food was terrific. The crab ravioli was so delicate and delicious. Can't wait to eat hear again."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "The occasion was made special by the company, but also the staff was neat. Lunch was lite and good. Service was excellent. Our table was next to bar but that was not a problem. I don't know if the couple at the next table enjoyed our conversations but they did enjoy the fun we had. Great for lunch, can't wait to try it for dessert late night."

  • "Skillfully done meal. Mushroom tart was surprisingly tasty, cod and asparagus were first rate. Altogether a pleasant evening."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Our anniversary reservation was for 6:30pm but when we arrived, the one table for two was taken, and so we stood at the bar for 30 minutes while the other couple finished their romantic evening. But the food was excellent, our waitress was very nice and personable, and we mostly forgot about the half-hour of standing/sitting at the bar. Our shared dessert was comped because of the snafu and we look forward to using the remaining amount on our gift card soon."

  • "it is always one of the best lunch during the week, as we go out almost every day"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary for the first time. The food and service was excellent. Our only disappointment was that we had a dinner reservation for 6:45 and they had run out of the prix fix menu specials by that time. Our waitress was very apologetic and told us that in the future we should call ahead to make our reservation and let them know that this is what we desired. They would be sure to make enough and some in reserve. Our consolation was that we ordered off the menu and had excellent meals. My Dover sole melted in my mouth and my wife's lamb was excellent."

  • "It is great to see this neighborhood spot getting the recognition it deserves! The service is always excellent which always puts the experience over the top."
    Dined on 6/30/2014

  • "We are always on the lookout for really excellent French restaurants. We have found our new favorite! Superior service. Phenomenal food quality and presentation. For us, a "just right" experience that made for a delightful evening."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Yet another great dining experience at this elegant little restaurant. The 3 of us shared escargot & a charcuterie plate (foie gras , country pate, & duck mousse) - delectable! Then one of us had the red grouper (the special for the evening), lamb, & a fillet - each expertly prepared. Finally we shared a strawberry crepe for dessert - scrumptious!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Excellent food and attentive service. Quiet and charming. Lunch was delightful."

  • "I love this place. Monday is souffle night and we had two. I had salmon - guest had veal. Everything was great."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We celebrated our 30th anniversary at Cafe Provence - we had not been to this restaurant in years. My husband had the Veal and I had the Filet. Both were cooked to perfection and full of flavor. We had Chocolate Souffle for dessert which was like eating a cloud of heaven! Wonderful night!! Can't wait to return!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Café Provence provides the best dining experience in Kansas City. The food is lovely, delicious, and well-varied, the service consistently friendly and excellent, and the environment comfortable, pleasant, and unique. Rightly recognized by many reviewers as among the best Kansa City has to offer, and deemed by Zagat the best in the metro, Café Provence has for years been our favorite restaurant. On our most recent visit, my wife had the halibut, which proved scrumptious, and I the leg of lamb, which was equally delicious. We shared a nice date/pistachio/goat cheese opener, and the potato leek soup was strong on basil but tasty. Créme caramel and a double espresso perfectly finished the evening."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Great spot to sit outside... particularly like the small plates. We had escargot, mussels, cheese and olives. Add a couple of glasses of truly delicious wine and it was the perfect light meal."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My husband chose this restaurant to celebrate his birthday. I had requested a specific seating location in my reservation and we were given that location. We had a most pleasant evening. The food is delicious. This is one of our favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Excellent food, presentation and ambiance! What a gem of a restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We ate outside because it was a gorgeous day! The traffic of people and cars did not make the outdoor dining as pleasant but we loved being outside. The food was delicious. Three out of four of us had different things but all were pleased with their choices. Good service, too."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This was my first visit and it was beyond exceptional in almost every way, practically perfect!!! The only negative was a somewhat rude petite French lady with short hair that sat us. She was very curt and unwelcoming, as if we were a total pain in the wazoo. Bad first impressions aside, the food was impeccable!! Natalie, our server, was professional, yet playful and charming. The food!! Oh, the delicious food!!!! Coquille st Jacques and a fried goat cheese salad to start. Filet with Boursin cheese for an entree. And the bread --- it took me back to traveling in Europe. Devine!"

  • "I took a co-worker to lunch who has been having a difficult time. Cafe Provence was perfect! Quaint,quiet so we could talk, wonderful service, and the food was fabulous, as always. Cafe Provence is my go to place for an intimate, fabulous lunch. My co-worker live in SW Johnson County so had never had an opportunity to go to Cafe Provence. She can't wait to take her husband after he has recovered from his surgery!"

  • "We went on a Tuesday night and ordered the four course prix fixe menu. Excellent! Sea bass was course 3. Soup, salad & of course dessert (chocolate mousse!). Each course was superb and beautifully presented. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend"
