    All of the "almost perfects" and slow service (2 hours) are insignificant in the face of such memorable food. The onion tart was happiness on a plate. My lobster risotto with colorful additions could win an international prize. Even the side of spinach was perfect. These things do not just happen. This place deserves its pristine reputation as a destination for food.

    I've had lunch at Le Provencal Bistro many times - with family or a group from work. This is a special restaurant. The servers are attentive but do not get in the way. There are food choices for everyone. I especially enjoy the many ways they prepare mussels. What a delight.

    Fun Saturday night. Very busy with a nice clientele. Great to not have to travel to NYC for some French flair. The lobster salad was delicious, and I loved my Sea Scallops entree! Everything was tasty and delicious but my husband burned his palate on the escargo so I can only give four stars.;)

    Went with my wife for a date night. Will absolutely be returning soon. She started with the crab lump salad, I has a salmon tartar special. Seafood on both was fresh and tasty. het main was the beef bourgenion I had the steak frite provincial. again, outstanding. dessert we shared a creme brulee which was tasty but quite small. definitely not a sharing portion. Noise level was not loud, and the service was good.

    We met friends here for lunch on beautiful day. The restaurant was sunny and cheerful - painted yellow walls, and pictures of Provence. We had salads and white wine and enjoyed a relaxing, pleasant afternoon. Food was very good. Decor could be "spiffed" up a bit; service was fine. All and all, it was a good experience, and we would return.

    We had a lovely family celebration on a quiet weekday evening. The staff was welcoming and professional. And our hostess, Mika, went out of her way to ensure our evening was enjoyable. Our dinners were delicious! Fresh, well prepared and ample. We sampled a wide variety of items my beet and goat cheese salad and steak Au poivre were excellent. And everyone else enjoyed their shrimp, soft shell crab and pasta dishes. We will return soon.

    We were 5 people and all of us enjoyed what we had. The snails were excellent as was the crab salad, beet salad and endive salad. I had the calves liver--delicious. The lobster risotto was wonderful. Two people wanted soft shell crab--but there was only one order left. Creme brulee was excellent. Nothing to complain about the service. Our waitress was sweet. When listing the specials (lots), the waitress didn't include prices--a faux pas. Nobody should buy anything without knowing what it costs. We asked the prices and they were given to us.

    We are frequent (5 times a year) diners at Provencal. So obviously we like it and have been going many years. The wine list needs a little upgrade, there are just too many good affordable wines out there, I think a little more attention would go a long way. Soft shell crabs are always a treat at Provencal. as are reliable steak frites/au poivre. I was also surprised that no oysters on the half shell were available-possibly the long weekend and they didn't want to be caught holding them- who knows. All in all, we most always tend to love our visits- classic bistro cuisine that is uncomplicated and direct. They have been at this for at least a decade, so for the most part the owners know exactly what they are doing. We are big fans!

    There are too many "specials" and other choices to prepare all properly. One choice, the hanger steak, lacked flavor and was more chewy than usual. The special of soft shell crab was overdone.

    This place is my family's go-to place for complete satisfaction, whether brunch, lunch or dinner. I blush to compare it to McDonald's, but it is like that in the sense (and only that sense) that you always know what you'll get - in this case, a superb experience. The food, service and ambiance, along with frequent presence of one or both of the owners, makes it always a treat. And the prices, while far from inexpensive, are not unreasonable considering... If you can't park on Mamaroneck Avenue, find your way to the side streets...

    We've lived in the area for almost 15 years and had never been to this local restaurant. We finally decided to try it and what a pleasant surprise. Everything we ordered was delicious from the appetizers of escargot to the mushrooms on toast to the shrimp and white beans The entrees of lobster pasta was very light and tasty as was the salmon with lentils. The only disappointment was not finding this local gem sooner.

    My husband and I took our 90 year old mother-in-law to Provencal for Easter Sunday brunch. This is an intimate restaurant in the heart of Mamaroneck. The ambiance was warm and inviting. Service was friendly and prompt. We had lobster bisque, salmon on toast, salad, shrimp provencal, seared duck breast, and steak au poivre. Every dish was extremely tasty. You should order the duck breast whenever it is available. The meat was tender and flavorful, and expertly prepared with just the right amount of seasoning. The portion sizes were just right. My mother-in-law was very pleased. She loved visiting Paris and Provencal reminds her of all the wonderful times she had during those trips.
