I treated a friend to a birthday lunch. I called ahead to let them know it was her birthday and said I wanted it to be special. Lunch was nice. My guest was wished a happy birthday by our waiter, as he handed us the menu. That was it.
When we asked about desserts, we were informed that there would be no special complimentary birthday dessert (not that we asked ).That was pretty embarrassing. We ordered a cranberry crème brûlée. It was cold, as if it had just been removed from the freezer. It had a strange taste, not a good one. We sent it back.

Lunch was very good. We had the crab cake appetizer and a plate of fried green tomatoes. For our entrée we had the Florida salad with a petite fillet mignon on the side. It was delicious! We were charged extra for a basket of bread and butter. I was not expecting that.

The ambience was quiet and tasteful. As for a special birthday lunch, there was nothing special about it. You would think they could at least have a place card/memo board wishing the honoree a happy birthday. That would cost nothing. A complementary birthday dessert would go a long way in making the recipient want to come back to that restaurant in the future.

It will be a long while before either of us return to A La Provence.

It would also be nice if the manager or chef would come out to meet his patrons and ask how lunch was. Give it that personal touch.

The occasion was "Everyday Dining," but it was Valentine's day, so things were a little busy. The food is always pretty good at A La Provence (try the lobster bisque). The service is generally prompt and attentive. Since we are "regulars" there, some of the staff know our drink order in advance as well as some of my wife's peccadilloes about how she likes her dishes prepared. They are always very accommodating. The place is generally quiet enough to have a business or personal conversation and they have a nice meeting room that seats twenty-five or thirty should it be needed. The chocolate mousse always tops off the day.........

This restaurant is amazing! We love it! The atmosphere is relaxing and upscale. The staff are professional and welcoming. The food is the best in Tallahassee! The crab cake is beyond delicious and their filet mignon is the best I have ever had! It’s a bit pricey but completely worth it! When they say you get what you pay for in this case you truly do.

Food was very good though I had to settle for my third choice of entrees. Service was very slow.

Had the Parpalle with scallops, fish, shrimp and lobster. The noodles and sauce were excellent. Under the noodles and sauce were a few dime-sized scallops and not much else ... I felt cheated... a $31 entree should “wow” the diner ... it did no such thing!

Celebrating my birthday and throughly enjoyed this restaurant. The atmosphere is classy and upscale. The menu is diverse and the staff is attentive and knowledgeable. I had the Filet Mignon and it was amazing!! A wonderful experience. Pricey but great for special occasions.

We have come to this restaurant at least once, but now usually three or more times per year for at last eight years. Sadly, this was one of the the worst meals that we have ever had at the restaurant. The lobster bisque was decent, though the lobster was in large chunks that had sunk to the bottom of the cup rather than spread throughout the bisque as is better. But both of our entrees were downright weak. My wife's yellowtail tuna was either not yellowtail tuna or an inexpensive cut of it. My cowboy steak was so tough that I had to saw it with a less-than-good steak knife provided. In both cases, the pairings with the entrees were mismatches. My wife's wine was fine and the dessert was the highlight of the occasion, a cranberry infused treat that was unique and a nice finish. We will try one more time, but there are more options in Tallahassee now for fine dining and we will start looking elsewhere more often if there is no improvement.

Service was top notch. The young lady who took care of our table was extremely professional, polite and took care of everything with a level of polish that I would have expected in a michelin star restaurant.

The Wine list was very good and comprehensive for most tastes. We had 2 very pleasant selections.

The food was only OK, we ordered crab cakes which were a little bland, eggplant appetizer and escargot.

The chateaubriand steak went over well but the Cobia with risotto was only OK, the fish is a bland fish anyway but was way over salted and the risotto di not hit the point being a littel under cooked ans also very bland.

Bottom line was that for the price of the dishes we expected a more quality even if the portion needs to be smaller.

We had a wonderful time! The food was delicious and well presented. The ambiance was pleasant with a quiet and nice atmosphere without being too "stuffy." The service was excellent. It was expensive but it was well worth it. I have eaten at other restaurants that charged as much which were not nearly as good. I would definitely visit again and refer a friend!
