The food was outstanding!!!
The food was outstanding!!! The atmosphere is great for a couple who is in the need for a little romance. A little bit pricy but overall it's worth it. I had a wonderful time and my girl loved it!!!

A special treat
This is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or bring the love of your life. The atmosphere is relaxing enough to let your cares slip away. It is spacious enough so that it rarely appears crowded even when the bar and function rooms are full, the dining room allows for quiet and private intimate conversations. The staff takes pampering the guests seriously. The French cuisine uses local grown and fresh produce, delicately seasoned, and prepared to perfection. We go back whenever we want to feel special.

step up from olive garden
Pricey menu with fairly good flavor, nothing too amazing though.

Great choice for special occasion
We reserved a table for 20 for Saturday lunch after our son's college graduation. What a wonderful choice! They were fully prepared for us, the food was delicious and reasonably priced for lunch. Portions were smaller than the average "American" sizes, however. Nice menu selection and very good service. For the 20 of us (only 17 showed up) they gave us two waiters. Definitely would recommend for your next special occasion.

Best Filet Ever
I just love this restaurant. The food is always good but, on this particular evening, some of our out-of-town friends were in town. There were 8 of us. I can honestly write that the filet I had that night was the best I have ever eaten. Cooked perfectly. Top notch restaurant. Desserts are also great.

Perfect Mothers Day brunch
We always enjoy dining at A la Provence, but the Mothers Day brunch was a special treat. The menu was varied enough to cover our widely-varying tastes, and each item was beautifully presented and delicious. Despite the Mothers Day crowd, our server was attentive and it was overall a delightful experience.

Still the best
I have known Albert through other local chefs for over 20 years. We don't have the opportunity to dine in Tallahassee very often and each time we do there seems to be a sad change, i.e. the chef sold out to someone new, the restaurant closed, etc. Not Albert. Perfect everytime! Please don't leave.

Celebrating a Special Event
My husband and I wanted to find a nearby restaurant to eat lunch on our 35th wedding anniversary. I remembered A La Provence from business meetings, and took him there. The food was excellent, and it was very peaceful and quiet, so we had a perfect lunch to think back over the years. We will do it again!

Geared towards older crowd
It was a nice place with good food but the crowd was mostly people over 60.

Reliably a favorite
We took a friend to dinner here for a special occasion. This is a good place for quiet conversation, imaginatively prepared food paired with good wine, and excellent but unobtrusive service. We have never been disappointed.

One of best meal's I've ever had
Quaint and ambient atmosphere, perfect for a date or a nice family dinner. The food is OUTSTANDING. You truly cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. The filet was cooked to perfection - the best I've ever had- and the mahi mahi topped with fried avocado was mouthwatering. Be sure to try the chocolate mousse for dessert, a classic French treat. HIGHLY recommend this restaurant - it's really no more expensive than any other nice restaurant in town such as Front Porch or Bonefish, and the quality of food and service at A La Provence is tenfold.

return to greatness
I ate there this week on two consecutive nights....I had groups of friends from out-of-town. The menu was large and we wanted everything....so we had everything....from hors d'oeuvres to desserts. All superb. My friends from New Orleans are true foodies and they ate everything and couldn't believe that such quality food (comparable to N.O.) was found here in Tallahassee. I think A La Provence has returned to its former greatness.

We have been there several times and it does not disappoint.

If you like to linger over fine food and appreciate warm personal service you will love this restaurant. Personally I appreciate the quiet and relaxed atmosphere which lets me savor the chef's creations.

This is my third time dining at the restaurant and I continue to be pleased and satisfied. The food is consistently good. The only slightly negatives I have are in regards to the atmosphere. The lighting was a bit too dim and though there were only a few other couples dining when we were, they still seated us right next to another group of four. I would have appreciated a little elbow room.
Everything from drinks, appetizers, entree to coffee were delicious. We will be back.

Tucked away in Market Square shopping center in North Tallahassee off of Capital Circle NE and visible from I-10, is a lovely, intimate restaurant with outstanding food. A wide variety of interesting dishes are available, including a 4 course meal for a price fixed $47. A professional server made sure everything went perfectly. The courses were unhurried, we never felt rushed. Instead, one lovely course followed another, all wonderfully prepared. The only problem was that the lights which illuminated the sign were off, and we drove by the restaurant without noticing it. After getting some local help (we were visiting), we went in and were treated to an excellent dining experience.

Food and service were both
Food and service were both excellent, and come with a little of the old world charm. We were pleasantly surprised to see that La Provence is essentially a "farm-to-table" restaurant now. Organic ingredients from local farms and dairies. Very nice! Great for special occasions.

Excellent choice for Thanksgiving. First time we have eaten out for Turkey day and I thouroughly enjoyed the entire experience....

Best Thanksgiving Ever
I usually cook for numerous people on Thanksgiving. But this year, four of us decided it just wasn't worth the energy to cook, so we made a reservation at A La Provence. Wow! What a good idea. Loads of traditional foods from which to choose -- both the turkey and the lamb were delicious. Plus they piled the plates high so I had left overs for a couple of days, just as though I had cooked it myself, but without all the hassle of actually planning and cooking it. And the food was delicious! I think we started a new tradition this year!
