One of ou friends had the mussles and he said they were fresh and very good.

Waiter is very pleasant and attentive. I had the lamb cassoulet which is full of flavor (I love their varieties of bread), my wife had the lobster risoto which she thinks its kind of salty but I tasted it and it's fine for me.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalJust an overall exceptional experience from start to finish!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been dining at PinotWe have been dining at Pinot Provence for years & have seen many chefs come & go. Chef Alfonso is one of the best! He is very talented & creative. We had the asparagus gratin - delicious! There were 4 huge asparagus, Paresan cheese, topped with a fried egg. The assorted melon & Dubgeness crab salad was not only delicious but beautifully presented as well. For entrees we had the halibut and the lamb cassoulet. The halibut was moist and cooked perfectly. The cassoulet had generous amounts of lamb loin & lamb shoulder. It was a wonderful dinner!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMostly very goodFood was very good, but my wife ordered a dish with lobster, and it came wit two small pieces on a huge bed of risotto.

Service was more than outstanding, when we ask about a cheese platter that was not on the menu, our waiter was more than happy to see if the chef would make one up, and we were severed a four cheeses. Can not speak about the wine list, because with no cork fee, we decieded to bring our own bottle. But the bar menu is quite large, one of the only places I have been to that has three types of Grappa.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Dining ExperienceWe've been to Pinot Provence several times, and it has never disappointed.
