  • Pretty good

    I was attracted by the prices and reviews. I figured a relatively higher-end French restaurant would fit my conception of a very nice French restaurant: cloth "naperons" nice silver, attentive service and classically-prepared or inventive dishes. Here's what I observed: cheap paper table covers over cloth, inexpensive silver, styrofoam dropped ceiling, a few French posters; friendly-enough but somewht indifferent service (the owner greeted us but spent the rest of the time sitting at one table with friends, never getting up even to say goodbye); good main dishes, very bland side dishes, excellent desserts; mall-store feel to the interior, matching the strip-mall exterior. I'd return for the food but with somewhat lower expectations.

    I you like neighborhood places this one is for you. From the appetizers until the end of the meal everything went great, even though the restaurnt was full. The servers were wonderful making the experience just that much more enjoyable. Was able to bring my own wine only to pay an average corking fee...but well worth the trip. I will be back soon.

    From the greeting at the front door to the finish of our evening at Bistro Provence we were very impressed and felt welcome. The appetizers ( onion soup and escargot) were wonderful. Entrees of veal and snapper were prepared to perfection. Desserts...yum. We will certainly return.

    Charming spot - love the food - always consistently good - food is always cooked to perfection - vegetables have the best taste, texture and color. Reasonably priced. My husband and 2 others had the duck which they loved - I had the veal - Highly recommend it - comfortable spot - not pretentious!

    Everything was "okay", but that's it - nothing special. Entrées were fairly good, but glob of rice & green beans did not enhance. One guest's medium steak arrived red then came back done, but so tough, he couldn't cut it.

    If you cannot get to Provence at the moment, this gem of a restaurant nestled in a strip shopping center along Federal Highway in Boca Raton will get you in a Provencal frame of mind. You will not be rushed as this is Florida's quiet season, but the first is first-rate and the tariff within most people's bounds, whether you try their pre-fixe Sunset menu or the regular menu after a certain hour. During the season crowds return and you can easily see why. We will be coming back too.

    Dined on 5/6/2013
    Don't judge by the outside my friends had said. This restaurant is one of the best and I have been there many times. Took new friends and they were skeptical since it is in a strip mall and does not look like much from the outside but they thought it was the best place and were so happy I took them there. A must! And they have a twilight dinner also which is fantastic. I have done both twilight and regular.

    Have been eating here for many years and the quality has always been good. Owner is present at all times and is accessible if needed. One is greeted like an old friend. The wait staff has been on board for years, knows the wine preferences and can describe each dish .Escargot are the best in town as is the sole and the duck. the Price Fixe dinner is your best bet.

    Very nice, low-key, family restaurant. Major issue is parking. There are three restaurants in a row in this strip. I had to park a quarter mile away, and it required two U-turns on Federal Highway to get there and back.

    My daughter & I dined on Wednesday night & enjoyed escargot and the mousse. Both were delicious. The owner, who is very personable & generous, offered us the mushroom soup which was outstanding. The service was great. Wine list has good selections & is reasonable. Our entrees were the duck and scallops...amazing! There isn't anything on the menu that would not make you happy. Love this restaurant & can't wait to return.

    I arrived a few minutes early for my reservation. I checked in with the hostess and she knew that i was her " single" and she said that the table would be ready momentarily. 15 minutes later she pointed to a table that had actually been unoccupied and set since i arrived. I got the feeling that she was disappointed to have to waste a 4 place table on just one person. That said, the service was a bit slow. But the food was fantastic.

    We were three guests. Restaurant was highly recommended. owner very hospitable. service quite nice. However, in my case. I ordered sole (I believe lemon sole) On the first taste I knew this was not sole. My guests were very happy so I didn't make any issue. Just did not finish the fish. I'm quite familiar with sole....This was NOT sole.

    Strip-mall location, parking difficult on busy night: park in the rear. Peak dinner hour hectic and even with open table reservation, we were outside of kitchen pass thru window. Service erratic, several different people came to our table so we were confused on who was our server. Food came quickly: good, hot, and portions were good size. Steak Frites just okay, stead cooked to our liking,frites were nothing special at all, not what you would expect at a bistro...more like frozen fries you get anywhere else. Lamb shank was tender and vegetable accompaniment was varied and cooked perfectly. Desserts disappointing, profiteroles was one scoop of ice cream in frozen crust. Would go back for entrees and onion soup...skip the desserts.

    I took my son and two of his friends to dinner here on a Saturday night. Reservations were honored with a short wait. I had requested a particular round table, as we were a party of five, I did not get it. Everyone loved the duck entree, as well as the escargot and french onion soup. Desserts were good. All in all, a nice dinner. I was disappointed with my veal dish, as the thin cut veal was sort of chewy, so I will not get that again. We will return.

    Bistro Provence does not honor reservations made on Open Table. Having previously enjoyed our experience there, I made a date for four people there and they called me to say that there was no room for us. If they are on Open Table they need to cooperate and treat patrons properly. We will not try again.
