    We had a great birthday dinner with friends. The salmon and Bouillabaisse were especially excellent. The Grand Marnier and chocolate souflles were perfect for dessert. The service and ambience encouraged to enjoy our friends and we lingered at our table for almost three hours.

    Le Provencal is consistent and a very good value since it isn't totally a la carte - you actually get a potato and veggies - which are fabulous and a little green salad to begin.

    This was our first meal at Le Provencal, but it won't be our last! It came highly recommended by friends, who particularly raved about the duck. They were righ on. It was fabulous. While ordering, we were a little disappointed that they did not even offer a small salad, but it is included with all meals and was quite adequate. I also ordered Vichycoise as an appetizer. It was served in a large bowl and I've never had better. Fortunately, no one else ordered an appetizer, so every one shared it with me. One of the owners seated us and was very attentive throughout the evening. The wait staff was well trained. We had no room for dessert, but next time I will save room because the selection looked wonderful.

    We were there for Valentines so it was crowded. The tables were close enough that we had a conversation with the couple next to us as though they were seated with us. The menu was a special menu for the occasion. The food was excellent but staff was a little stressed to keep up. We waited quite awhile for our dessert because they forgot we hadn't had ours. When it came it was worth the wait. We will definitely go again on a normal day. The ambiance was like a small cafe .

    We found this restaurant by accident and having lived in France for four years thought we would give it a try. The food, wine, and experience put us back in France for a short while. Sitting outside on the typical French furniture and enjoying a beautiful day and the boulevard were great. I recommend this restaurant highly.

    Our dining experience was soured by having to wait 10 minutes or more for the waiter to come by to take our drink orders. They were out of the first bottle of wine we ordered (after another long wait). It was pleasant to sit outside. The menu has a nice variety of dishes. We tried three different soups to start and all were very good. Portions are large, and the food is rich. Our companions especially enjoyed the duck and sea scallops.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We had a problem with our wine order for dinner. We ordered a $30.00 bottle, served a $75.00 bottle, which we did not know about until the bill came. The problem originated when the server verbally stated our wine order in to the owner, without pointing to the item on the wine list. She got the French chateau names wrong. The owner refused to make any discount, in spite of the server’s mistake. Moral of the story: Always keep the wine list in hand until your selected bottle is presented table side. Avoid what could become a colossal mistake and a mammoth bill.

    I take my students who achieve a 5 on the Advanced Placement U.S. History exam every year to an outstanding dinner. For several years I have chosen Le Provencal because of its wonderful food, location in the center of the Gables, and a casual atmosphere that does not intimidate teenagers. They accomodate my desire for a round table that makes conversation that much easier. The students love trying foods they have never had such as the escargot which they loved, the incredible filet mignon with bernaise sauce, the lobster ravioli, and desserts such as tarte tatin, chocolate mousse, and the bombe of ice cream and merengue. Everyone had an incredible evening and left very pleased with their experience.

    I hvae been visiting this restaurant for 25 years and last visited in 2008 not aware of their move in 2009. I still loved the new setting don't get me wrong but I miss the feling of being in someone's home...the old location had much more personal touches and charm. I kind of felt that the new location and restaurant became very commercialized. No complaints on the food or service, I also did not recognize any of the familiar faces from the staff from the old place. I fell in love with this place at age 15 still love it at 40. I will be back.

    Went for Miami Spice and had the gazpacho, Beef Wellington, and raspberry sorbet for my meal. We started with an amuse bouche of pork pate, which was delicious but heavy with peppercorn. The gazpacho was delicious, with a heavy tomato base rounded out with hints of citrus and onion. The Wellington was fabulous, it was cooked perfectly and the sauce brought the entree to a higher level. The sorbet was a nice ending to the meal. The ambiance was quaint and our table was intimate, but the restaurant started to get crowded around 8:30. I am interested in returning to order some of the other entrees featured on the regular menu.

    Great experience at Le Provencal specially considering that my friend and I asked for the Miami Spice menu. Strange enough very few restaurants are worth going for Miami Spice. Usually you get only one choice of uninteresting appetizers and entrees. At Le Provencal you have three tempting choices in each category. Service is friendly and courteous. I look forward to visit this restaurant again, this time for a regular menu.

    Decided to try Miami Spice lunch because I've never been to this restaurant before. Food was good with large portions and arrived quickly. The trout terrine is not something you usually see- it appeared to have been plated ahead of time and sauced when served- the greens were a bit wilted and the tomato dried out but the sauce was quite tasty. Ribs were fall off the bone tender with a sweet sauce, and a mound of hot crisp fries. This is bistro fare, not Texas barbecue. The floating island meringues were tender but the creme anglaise was more like milk than custard- also appeared to have been made ahead and refrigerated for a while. The restaurant was not busy so the busboy refilled the glasses a little too often but was quick with the check
