    We go there quite often and do not miss to visit with friends during Restaurant Week. Always good and reliable, this is probably the nicest restaurant on Mamaroneck Avenue. It manages to keep its class and European cuisine inspiration almost as an island oo tradition and quality.

    We have been going to Provencale for years. We went during Restaurant Week for the first time and it didn't disappoint. They had great selections. I had Fois Gras and Beef Borgunione. My wife had pate and coq au vin. Everything was excellent. They even had wine on sale. We had a cab from Napa that was very good and a deal at $39. Service is always good. Go there for a nice lunch or dinner that you will enjoy.

    LE PROVENCAL IS A PERFECT RESTAURANT FOR A "FRENCH BISRO FIX". THE FOOD PREPARATION IS FIRST RATE, AS AUTHENTIC AS YOU WOULD HOPE FOR. ESCARGOT WAS ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD, FOIS GRAS WAS RICH AND CREAMY, AND THE WINE LIST MORE THAN REASONABLE. TERRIFIC "BANG FOR THE BUCK".

    I needed a microscope to find the beef in the beef bourguignon. If I wasn't on a first date, I would have mentioned something to the waiter. I thought it was delicious, but, if there was more than 1-2 ounces of meat in the dish I'd be shocked! I know it's restaurant week and there was a $29.95 price fix, but, come on! If $10 of that was the soup and dessert, that's $20 for the main course. Surely, another couple of ounces of beef would still have left plenty of room for profit! C'est dommage!!!!

    We dined at Le Provancal during Restaurant Week. Although most participating restaurants restrict their choice of entrees and often one struggles to find one that seems attractive, Le Provencal offered so many choices that we had a hard time deciding which to order. We ended up with the John Dory and calves liver, both of which were delicious. We ate early (6:00 on a Friday night); by the time we left, the noise level had begun to rise, though not to an objectionable level.

    The host was very nice and we were seated promptly. My husband and I ate here, during the last Restaurant week, and wanted to go back. This experience was just OK this time. Mostly what bothered us was how long it took the wait staff to take our orders. We saw other patrons, that arrived after, order before. There were 3 waiters/waitresses standing next to us. Not one looked over or noticed us waiting. Mind you, we had already given our drink orders and had drinks served. Our menus were sitting stacked on the table, my husband was frustrated and I was about to ask for service. That's never a good start. The food was alright...cooked fine. It was nothing remarkable (last year the food impressed us), so that's why we probably won't return.

    It is hard to decide what to order at Le Provencal Bistro with an interesting and varied menu, but I always wind up selecting the escargots as an appetizer. I must try the country pate one day! During Restaurant week my group ordered the short ribs, calf's liver, and the John Dory fish. All of us were happy and full when we left! Thanks for a great dinner!

    The veal chop was OK, but it was a bit greasy and didn't have all that much flavor. But the stars of the show were clearly the crab cake (best we ever had - one bite and I was totally blown away) and the scallops (how do you describe perfection?).

    We have been there three or four times in the past few years and have not been disappointed. I haven't had dinner but the lunch menu is varied. I've had both the calf's liver and hangar steak and this visit both of my companions had poached eggs. All good. The service was a bit slow (had to ask twice for coffee) but pleasant and cheery. The restaurant is on a busy street, yet the exterior tells you that a comfortable bistro awaits. This is a very good restaurant; reasonably priced and serving excellent food.

    Sweet and warmly appointed without being pretentious - both the atmosphere and our knowledgeable server. Every course was just right - gorgeous beets with goat cheese salad, savory onion tarts, calf's liver that melted on the tongue, and a simply but perfectly presented Bronzino. Arrive early for a quiet dinner for two; the crowd is jovial as the evening grows later.

    Returned to restaurant after a hiatus. Owner Derrick Dickers and wife Mieke try to maintain a venue to visit for excellent dining. We like that the menu is periodically revitalized with replacements and additions. An outstanding Crab Louie while not listed on the menu is still offered if one inquires. On the menu liver -here sauteed in liver and onions- is the best in Westchester. The food we've had has always been very tasty. We also like that good wines are offered by the glass. Service is always friendly and accommodating. A two-level space with attractive paintings on the walls and a pleasant ambiance, the restaurant's only drawback is noise, which at times can be deafening and overwhelming. Attempt should be made to dampen the sound.

    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.

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.
