    We had not been to the restaurant in a few years and really liked the renovations. The food was better than our last visit. Unfortuantely, the server we had clearly did not want to be there. It was a long weekend (BC Day), a little warm in the restaurant (but still comfortable) and I think the individual just wanted to be elsewhere. Not only did the server not verbally outline the daily features, there was no follow up after the courses were served. (Had the food not been satisfactory, we certainly would have offered our feedback!) We also had to ask to have some of our glasses/plates cleared, in order to make room for our next course. We would have lingered a little longer after dessert, but we really felt like we were an imposition.

    Provence Mediterranean Grill is truly a neighborhood gem! From the minute we entered the restaurant and were greeted with smiles, we knew we were in for a good dining experience. Everything on the menu looked appetizing which made it difficult to choose. The bouillabaisse is outstanding and creme brulee is to die for! I know we'll be returning soon.

    A popular spot which I hadn't been to for a long time but my companion had been recently for dinner and lunch and had enjoyed both and suggested it for a birthday celebration. Food is good and nicely presented. A small patio but a windy day so we sat inside.

    My wife and I went for dinner as a birthday celebration after having the Provence Mediterranean Grill highly recommended by a relative. I had looked up their web page and we decided beforehand to go for the spotted shrimp special, which included an appetizer, main dish, and dessert. I won't go into specifics, but from beginning to end the meal was fabulous! The service was just right, all questions answered without hesitation, and everything we had very tasty. We will be returning to dine again in the near future and will gladly pass on our recommendation to family and friends.

    After a UBC graduation, we spent a lovely dinner with my daughter and my parents. Finding places that are interesting enough for my daughter, quiet enough for my 91 year old mom to be able to hear the conversation and delicious enough food for me - is no easy feat. Provence never lets us down. Stephanie is a wonderful server there and the food was great.

    Have been a number of times for Brunch. Delicious food. Great bread basket with breads, muffins, biscotti etc. To die for mushroom ravioli. The whole time I was eating it I was trying to figure out how to replicate it...soooo good. Have not been for dinner to this location but to Provence Marinaside. That was wonderful and so next time I am going to have dinner at here. The service is excellent. It is very reasonable. Quaint venue but don't let that fool you regarding the excellent quality. Will definitely return and recommend to family and friends.

    We have dined at this restaurant many times over the years. On this occasion, although the food was very good, the service was extremely disappointing, lacking the finesse of a fine dining establishment. The dishes were plonked down in front of us without any explanation and the waitress would have been better working in a fast food joint where there is little customer interaction. We will sadly not be returning for a long time.

    Wait staff was very pleasant, but service was absolutely terrible. waited nearly 30 minutes just to get our coffee - twice. Asked the waitress if they were short staffed and were told no, just weren't expecting everyone to show up all at once. Sunday Brunch? That's usually a busy time, isn't it?

    Dined on 3/16/2014
    My daughter and I, and friends who have recently travelled in France, were drawn to your restaurant, by a walk by menu viewing, a subsequent on line search, and a hope that the offer of genuine Provencal 'Cuisine' would actually be possible. We were not disappointed. We had the Seafood and Meat Platters, as much food for four people as was more than adequate, and the flavours transported me to a warmer more fragrant clime. Our friends say they have found a new go to spot in Vancouver that they will recommend to their most discerning friends in Abbotsford. Until we meet again my friends... (we had some great Irish moments in Vancouver this trip as well) May the sun shine warm upon your faces(s)... Thanks for the many gluten free options.

    The Arctic Char special of the evening was very nice. Crispy skin which I love on a bed of tasty peas. The three others at the table all agreed that the fish soup was full of flavour but a bit too salty. The roast chicken and mushroom ravioli were much liked. We didn't have our favourite server who is always so cheerful and efficient -- she's wonderful. We had the other lady who was fine though a bit rough.

    we often go for lunch and have always received excellent service and food. We were there on Valentine's day and the service was not up to its usual standard. Our server, although pleasant was not attentive at all. She was there to take our order, and we didn't see her again, till she provided us with the bill. I know it was Valentine's and it was busy, but we really felt we were neglected. After all, it was a special occasion, and we should have been provided with good service!!

    This was my first visit to Provence Mediterranean Grill. My mom has always raved about it so I checked it out during Dine Out Vancouver. The clam bisque was positively delicious! The scallops and sable fish melt in your mouth. The clafoutis is also not to be missed. We were very well taking care of by our prompt, helpful, and friendly server. I cannot wait to go back.
