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!
We brought our family to A La Provence for Christmas Eve dinner. Service, food, and drinks were perfect. We love our neighborhood gem!
It had been a year or so since our last visit so my wife and I and a friend dropped by for a great dinner on a Saturday evening. I had a soup appetizer special and pan seared Cobia fish. Both were delicious. My wife loved her Caesar Salad and fillet mignon. Our friend said her lasagna was great. We all decided we had been away from this excellent restaurant for too long and planned to return soon. The ambiance is elegant and there is plenty of free self-parking. Highly recommended.
Everything was great!!
Great food, great service. Made my birthday a special occasion.
