    Just want to take my wife somewhere new for her birthday and she was surprise that I found this resturant. They have a nice wine list but I brought mines corkage fee $20. Very friendly staff. When we reach they one of the owners ( husband ) greeted use and explained to use that they are short staff so he is trying to help out he did a good job 👍 . I was impress they were short staff and they all was working so smooth with a full Resturant 👍👍 good service. They made it look easy. Thank you for the night we enjoyed it. 👏👏👏👍👍👍

    Pleasant find on Miacle Mile. More like French country cooking than gourmet. Very large servings. Sauces were tasty, though my duck was not as crispy as I requested. Wine list was small but good Will return as French restuarants in S Florida are few and far between.

    Overall, our experience was decent but not outstanding. The food was above average but the service we found mediocre. After sensing that we had gotten good value for the money, the check arrived (with significant delay). For a restaurant whose entrees range from $25 to $35, I was completely shocked to see the Dover Sole I order (whose price was noted on the menu as M.P.), cost $58!! Shame on me for not asking its price before ordering but equal blame to the server for not volunteering its exorbitant cost. I won't be back.

    We were going to The Actors Playhouse in Coral Gables & we wanted something close to the theatre to get a bite before the show. We were so pleasantly surprised to find Le Provençal! The restaurant is lovely & the food delicious! Parking is easy to find on the street & it's 4 doors down from the Theatre. First time I've found fish soup with rouille ANYWHERE outside of the south of France & it was delicious! I'd go back JUST for that!

    My husband's wine group has dined at Le Provencal several times. Our anniversary dinner was my excuse to finally try the food my husband had raved about. I was not disappointed! I had the rabbit in mustard sauce because you rarely see rabbit on menus anymore. It was delicious as was the main course my husband had - duck breast. I have already recommended it to foodie friends and we will definitely be going back.

    Le Provençal provides consistently fine French cuisine at moderate prices. Convenient public parking off Andalusia Ave. can be easily reached by the restaurant's rear entrance. The place is well suited for intimate dining but also has plenty of room for large parties. One of my favorites!

  • What a disaster
    FrnkVIP
    Dined on 11/27/2013
    There were only 5 people plus us and it took well over an hour to get very average food. Then the waiter spilled my wife's glass of red wine all over her blouse and all the owner did was pour her a glass of wine and said it's "complementary" No apology from her although the waiter did apologize but no offer to adjust the bill for the dry cleaning cost which isn't cheap to get red wine removed. The whole nightmare was well over 2 hours .Never again.

    I dined here for the first time in 2011(a better experience).On this visit,they were extremely busy(a Saturday night).During my visit in 2011,they were not busy.This might explain why the service was so lackadaisical this time.We waited "forever" for our initial beverage order to be taken,and for bread.Then,there was a long delay before our server,France G,appeared to take our order.That was the only time we saw him.Two others(whose names I do not know)covered the remainder of our dine.I will say that the food is wonderful,and that their wine list is extensive(it surprised me that they stock Dubonnet Blonde).The lamb chop and the Dorada(fish) were fresh-tasting and delicious.A long wait for the check.....Other than the service, a nice dine.

    This is very nice place to share with that special someone. The ambiance is comfy but not too quiet. The food is impeccable! There is an ample wine selection for all tastes and budgets. The portions are adequate as the emphasis is on quality and taste and not on quantity. Small groups can also enjoy this restaurant as it is also appropriate for families. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others interested in French cuisine.

    From the moment my wife and I walked in, we took in the ambience and were pleased. The service was wonderful, the food absolutely delicious and the plating of the food was well done. We were impressed by the extensive wine selection offered. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and recommended the perfect wine for our meal. I highly recommend the escargot, it is delicious. The ambience is very romantic, perfect for your date night. You must visit this restaurant to appreciate its true splendor.

    Rack of Lamb and Coq au Vin - the best we have eaten in Miami! My wife and I started with Fish Soup and salads - perfect and classic. Excellent service. One of our best, overall restaurant experiences in a recent trip to Miami. Le Provençal will be a regular stop for us. Open Table made it easy to sort through many restaurants, especially with being able to read menus and reviews.

    SusieferVIP
    Dined on 8/20/2013
    We tried Le Provencal for the Miami Spice menu and it was rather bland. The complimentary fois gras was dry and average. The snails needed more garlic, salmon tartar was okay. The salmon entree was overcooked and the polenta wasn't necessary. The desserts -nothing to rave about. The grand marnier souffle was torn and a flap was open exposing the inside - grand marnier in there. For Miami Spice, exposing the countries food is vital. A cheese plate with different french cheese and meats, entrees cog au vin, beef burgundy, creme brulee for dessert. Other than the staff being exceptional with a romantic feel, I think they need to think over the Miami Spice menu for next year.

    It was perfect and welcoming! There was a small party ending inside and a couple sat completely opposite of us outside. The owner, French, made us feel so welcomed. She immediately retrieved a chair for my purse, and brought water to re-hydrate us. After reading through the diverse offering of wines, I found my favorite wine from when I lived in France. Never found at any other restaurant and we travel. We tried the first bottle and unfortunately it had soured but she immediately brought out the 2nd bottle which was sooo tasty!! Anyhow, the FOOD.... I had the escargot and my partner had the crab cake, I believe, it was gone so fast...he even tried and loved mine, double bonus! I had a creamy sauced salmon which melted in my mouth!!

    The place is great...! The food was delicious, we ordered from the miami spice menu. The cheff sent an appetizer as a compliment which set the mood for the whole night, we ordered red wine (malbec) since we were having red meat. We went last decemeber to Paris and had the escargots at champ elysees and when we taste them at Le Provencal this brought us back right away, the tartare was amazing....if you are having the duck, have some red wine as well.... would taste amazing.

    Le Provencal is a versatile Coral Gables gem. You can enjoy a romantic evening as flawlessly as an evening with a group of friends. The noise level is low and makes for a beautiful night of conversation. In my experience, the service and food have always been outstanding; and the wine list quite acceptable. I often recommend Le Provencal to family and friends, both in Miami and from out-of-town. All have thoroughly enjoyed the Le Provencal dining experience.

    My wife and I have so many good memories of Le Provencal. They are part of our history as a couple. I propose to my wife over ten years ago at their old location and we just renewed that moment last weekend at thier current location. Their service is the best, always genuine and kind. I recommend to all.
