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.........
Great service and food. We will be back again. I recommend if you haven’t try it you need to see what you are missing.
A La Provence never disappoints. Love dining there lunch and dinner.
Fantastic dinner. Always a favorite. Best steak in Tallahassee
This is a quality restaurant with excellent food. I would recommend it to anyone.
Fantastic place for a business lunch. Always a favorite.
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!
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.
We went to Open Table as Tallahassee was swamped with people attending graduations and restaurants were having a two hour wait... I found A La Provence and could not have been happier. The food was wonderful, the service quite good, and the overall experience exceptional. The Escargots were excellent and my daughter and I shared... I had the Orange Salad (not sure) but delicious, and had the New York Strip, cooked perfectly... we thoroughly enjoyed our chance encounter with this wonderful restaurant. Compliments to the chef and management team - and to Open Table!
Food was very good, great Napa Pinot Noir and service was excellent. My only observation is that the portions are small but understandably since it's French cuisine at an affordable price. Highly Recommend!
The food was excellent, as always. My wife had an excellent spinach salad for her starter, followed by a crab cake appetizer for her main course. I started with a quite tasty lobster bisque, followed by braised short ribs.
For Tallahassee, this restaurant is quite expensive (at least without our Groupon). With a bottle of wine, tax and gratuity, we spent about $115, not including the $40 value of a Groupon that cost us $22.
The service, however, was subpar. I had to ask for water refills. The server was not friendly. When I tried to get the waiter's attention, I was ignored. (And only three tables were occupied.)
The restaurant uses the hallways to the restrooms for storage, which resulted in a downgrade of the ambience. (On the plus side, the restaurant uses table linen.)
