Diner Reviews
  • "I think our server was overwhelmed. She was nice and polite but we did not see her much. We waited maybe 15-20 min to get our check when we were done. Honestly , the restaurant was not very busy. The food was great although we missed some of our favorites which have been removed from the menu, mainly the Brie. Over all, we enjoyed it and will come back."

  • "Another amazing dining experience for my wife and I. Can we get enough of the Mushroom Gnocci? No way!!! The Chatobriand cooked to perfection ... a great Pinot, nothing better. We had no problem hanging out and savoring every precious moment for 2 1/2 hours .... What a gem this place continues to be!"

  • "Sitting on the patio on a beautiful summer evening is made even better with the nice selection of dinner options, even the vegetarian options are tasty. Paul's Lemon Drop martini is my wife's favorite accompaniment with the meal. And we can bring our pup with us."

  • "Vita is a wonderful server, attentive, friendly, efficient, with an understated elegance. The main dining room is the most attractive and inviting in the Sacramento area. The food is good, but no chef specials on our most recent visit. The specials give the menu the variety it need"

  • "The food was great but the service was a little slow. Had to ask the bus boy to ask our waitress to bring us things that we already had asked her for. The restaurant was very warm, not enough air circulating. It was cooler outside"

  • "We had been to this restaurant once before and enjoyed it. We'd visit more often, but it's a bit pricy for us. That said, I thought it was the perfect place to take my wife for our 5th year anniversary!"

  • "One of our favorite restaurants, but service is the inconsistent weakness lately. Our server has been at La Provenance many years and seems to have grown weary with the concept of hospitality. Food and atmosphere were great as usual, but service makes or breaks the restaurant experience."

  • "Recently went to La Provence for lunch. Although the beautiful outdoor dining patio looked inviting we decided to stay inside because of the heat. As always the ambience is perfect and reminds me of Paris. I was greeted at the door by name and seated in a booth as requested. Our waiter was excellent and friendly. The lunch menu had many excellent choices. Also had a very nice "by the glass" wine list. The food was served promptly and exactly as requested. Shared a tasty dessert and found ourselves talking about when we could come back with friends for dinner! Lovely experience."

  • "It was our first time to go to La Provence and went with friends who live around the corner from La Provence. It's their favorite place. My wife and I live in Auburn, so the drive was worth it. Loved the terrace and Jess who was our server. They have happy hour outside, which was great, but the food was excellent. Thanks"

  • "Steak had gristle & too much fat. It was barely edible. The snails were served differently from the last time we were there which was in ramekins. This time they were served on a plate with a very strong tasting cheese (can't remember the name of the cheese). The cheese totally overwhelmed the dish."

  • "Small plates lacked flavor - very bland. Restaurant used to provide bread plates with interesting breads and spreads- now it's sourdough slices with three lumps of cold butter."

  • "Martinis were OK. NOt the bet I have had. The risotto was bland. Had not had it in some time but last time was much tastier. The Salmon was very good and the carpccio and the artichoke&spinach dip is very tasty. There was one disturbing aspect: when we inquired as to the pricing of the martinis with certain calls versus the house we were given prices. Yet when the bill came the prices had surcharges. We were then told that the prices quoted were for just a shot of voldka and not a martini. The surcharges were removed but this wasnot a comfortable thing to have to go through at an intimate birthday dinner with my wife."

  • "service was "poor" had to wait almost 2 hours to receive our entree. either the order was misplaced, and the lack of following up was evident from the server. Although the food was good, the portions were "skimpy" for the price."

  • "Beautiful restaurant but the food was nothing special, service was slow even though it was a Tuesday and the waitress was rude. When I made the reservation I asked for a secluded, quiet, romantic table because we were celebrating our anniversary but we were seated in the middle of the restaurant at a large table next to a party of 20. I asked the waitress to find us a quiet table off to the side but she rolled her eyes and told us everything was reserved but she would check. The hostess came up and showed me two other tables we could choose from but they too were right in the middle of the restaurant. I expected a lot better customer service and we left very disappointed. Next time we will go to Il Fornaio they know how to do it right."

  • "I have given up on this restaurant, after enjoying many excellent meals over the last 7 years, our last 3 meals have been terrible. Our most recent meal was on June 21. The scallops although they were well cooked were served in a salty disgusting sauce and I was unable to finish my meal our other meals were poorly cook and certainly not worth the price. Our other two experiences this year were similar with tasteless food or steaks that resembled pot roast and uncooked seafood. Given the many enjoyable meals we have had in the past I am very sad that I have to right this type of review. I want to note that our service was excellent and the restaurant did give us one complementary desert."

  • "I think the outdoor area is beautiful and serene, but don't expect superior service or food. I might go back for drinks on the patio, but their wines by the glass are outrageously priced so I might just go for a cocktail. It seems like they could train their staff better to meet the demands of the Rocklin/Roseville clientele."

  • "First time here was Fathers Day was 2 years ago and was very disappointed with a prime rib that was 90% fat and portion size very small that accentuated the fat content. Manager was very nice and offered a new entree but I passed and went home and made lunch. Gave them a second chance and went again today for Father's Day brunch. Nothing mind blowing food wise and had a Lagunitas IPA and when finished was asked if I would like another, which of course I said yes. 15 minutes later I got the beer, but not the same beer. It was a different beer and was flat and stale. As a micro brew lover I was really disappointed, primarily because the wrong beer they served me was awful. If it was fresh I would have noticed it but not disappointed."

  • "when I got there. I requested a table by the window. I was told that I didnt requested it at the time of making my resevation. but it was early enough that there was a lot of open tables along the windows. After eating( 1hr or a little more. there were tables still open.) Either the host or waitress that we asked checked to see if there was a possiblility to move us. Very disappointed as this was my first time at the restaurant. My table was not in a good place. it was on the path of the waiters and waitresses. Please make a note of this, so it doesn't happen to anybody else."

  • "Had reservations. We sat for 15 minutes before our server attended to us. In fact, she took the order of the adjacent table, sat ten minutes after us, first. She failed to take my mother's drink order. She delivered my daughter's drink to the wrong table. My mother's toast was not delivered with her egg breakfast. We asked three different times for the toast. When she got tired of waiting for the toast, my mother ate her eggs; they were cold. Finally, the fourth toast request resulted in the manager offering to bring a second breakfast. After the rest of the table finished eating, the breakfast came WITH THE WRONG TOAST. This experience literally ruined the day, which happened to be a holiday."

  • "La Provence is a lovely place to have lunch. It is so relaxing to sit out on the patio & have a leisurely meal. The food is good & the atmosphere is idyllical. The lunch menu is reasonably priced. I personally love the shrimp salad crevettes."

  • "Nothing special about La Provence. Disappointing for the most part. Wanted wine with dinner but waitress never asked if we did and just brought our food. At that point we didn't want to wait to have wine brought while our food cooled."

  • "It started when we arrived and 2 parties came in after us that didn't have reservations and were seated before us. When we were seated, they brought water and bread right away. After reviewing the menu for 15 mins, we found it odd that no one had approached our table. We put our menus down and staring at the many servers, no one came. After 35 mins, I finally was able to tag a server down and ask who our server was. She came back and told us it was her and she was sorry and wondered when someone would help us. The 1st course was served, it wasn't what I ordered but I was too hungry to complain. They never asked to refil drinks, you had repeatly ask. They did comp 2/4 deserts for the wait. The place is pretty, food ok, the service was awful!"

  • "We had a lovely dinner for our 50th anniversary. The ambience was nice, very relaxing evening. the food was good, the only glitch was our server messed up our credit card billing, double billed us, with incorrect amounts. The manager of La Provence was very polite, and very professional, and is taking care of our problem. So all in all, we had an enjoyable evening."

  • "We have never been disappointed at La Provence. Whether we are having drinks at the bar or enjoying a brunch or dinner, we always have an excellent experience there. The only negative thing I can think of is regarding cell phone reception. If you're in the bar, chances are you will not get a signal - metal walls or something!!"

  • "We were disappointed in La Provence; it was nothing out of the ordinary. I appreciate changes to a menu when it is an improvement. Their "new" salad with goat cheese is definitely not an improvement. The goat cheese is now sprinkled. Before it was warm and almond encrusted. My chicken was mediocre; it looked like a frozen entree from Sam's club maybe. It was not inspired at all. I make a substantially better lemon sauce. I use fresh lemons; maybe that is the difference. I got that selection because I like lemon and wanted to see how a trained chef would prepare it. I also was curious about how the polenta cake would be prepared. Yawn. It was a little dry, too. Overall, there was nothing I would say was outstanding about our meal."

  • "I was happy to see a bunch of bikes parked out in front of La Provence when we arrived. That was a good sign that the neighbors come to eat! My wait in the bar was full of friendly conversation with the bartender and other patrons. Our table was in the beautiful Garden Room as it was way too hot to sit out on their gorgeous patio. I have had spotty service here in the past (really, from one particular waitress) but our server was great this time, as was the manager, who brought us cupcakes from their take out counter (that otherwise would have gone to waste) to finish our meal! It really was a wonderful evening."

  • "Very nice dining experience: Ordered the Leg of Lamb, which was actually a lamb stew, and it was superb! The lamb was flavorful and very tender, but really appreciated the fresh vegetables in the dish. We live in the neighborhood of the restaurant and eat here often and always find it a pleasureable experience."

  • "We were seated right next to a group of 6 that were pretty drunk and were fairly loud and obnoxious. We couldn't help but hear their entire conversation and it really overpowered our ability to converse (just me and my husband). We asked to move and were offered a table only about 10 feet away, but the entire patio was empty so I wish they would have let us sit further away in our own area. I was disappointed by the staff's lack of concern with this. But the food was amazing."

  • "In this area no other place seems to have as good a wine selection as LP. The only issue with the food we had was what I chose to order....we took a chance and it didn't work out. Fortunately, we had great wine to wash it down with. The staff was friendly as always although it seemed someone forgot about us for a while and we had to wait too long to get our glasses filled with more Morgan....."

  • "We were a party of 6 and celebrating my friends 6th anniversary. We liked the Chef's menu and really like that we could order ala carte. I had the crab cakes and the duck. It was the best duck ever! We enjoyed the dinner and the anniversary dessert plate was a very nice touch. Thanks!"
