A La Provence Ratings and Reviews
The overall experience was disappointing. Had it not been Thanksgiving we would have left from the moment we walked in. But, we thought it had to get better. I think the most disappointing thing was that the waiter was rude and despondent. My family and I were excited to get dressed and have a nice Thanksgiving dinner out. He (waiter) never introduced himself and sighed loudly whenever we asked a question or wanted to order drinks first. He never explained the fixed menu and we didn't understand what we could order. It was a disaster. I have never been treated so badly at a restaurant before this. Also, food was thrown on the plates, it took a very long time for cold food, they were out of butter, pecan pie, and the lobster bisque was crab (actually that was the least worst thing) and the chocolate mousse was served frozen. Our order was wrong from the soup to the dessert and we tried to joke with our waiter but he just rolled his eyes and walked away. We didn't see him for almost 20 minutes. We were ignored on the way out which was interesting because we did not complain there at all. It had actually become comical as well as sad. And for a "nice" restaurant, we never saw the manager. Had he come out, we would have talked to him about our experience.
This meal was not up to their usual standards. The dressing was dry and slightly charred. The ham was dry and a little salty. The turkey was good but the gravy just okay. Perhaps this was all due to the fact that we were in a late seating. I've eaten here many times and will go back but not for Thanksgiving dinner I'm sorry to say. :-(
The food was delicious once it came. A long wait though. Not sure whether it was the kitchen or a shortage of wait staff. We were put in a back room which had way to much light,and was cold compared to the main dining room, and no ambiance. It was Parents Weekend in Tallahassee so they probably opened up the back room to accommodate the additional people this past weekend. Sometime the additional space is detrimental to an otherwise lovely place to dine.
We enjoyed the restaurant. It is a high end French restaurant. So with that comes some expectations. Our waiter was fun and worked hard to be a high end waiter with a little more polish to go. The room we were sat in was not nearly as nice as the food and could use a little decor. The food was great and the price was about right for the food. I'd go again.
Met at A La Provence with a colleague for a business lunch. This happened to be one of those days where the weather was just right for sitting outside in their nicely appointed outdoor patio. Although it overlooks the shopping center parking lot where they are located, the service was good and the nice weather made it worthwhile.......
Our experience was a very pleasant surprise! It was our first time. We wanted a unique , non chain restaurant experience! We were warmly greeted by the staff, we were served right away. The French food was authentic, fresh and full of flavor. We could tell the chef put thought and expertise into our culinary experience. My husband and I had a wonderful time.
We did wonder why there wasn't soft music. It was a very quiet restaurant and the decor was dated but that is not why we went there. The service and food outshines it all. We would absolutely return.
I went with a close friend using a Groupon for two diners. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very cordial. This is not the place you go to looking for a "fine dining", or "high-class" experience. However, this is not a restaurant that even attempts to be a Michelin star establishment. And because it knows exactly what it is and what it can do, it delivers extremely good service to its patrons as well as HIGH quality food. The food is DELICIOSO and it is prepared and delivered with care and attention to detail.
La Provence has been around for awhile. Its always been a fine restaurant with a good but unexciting menu. With the current chefs, La Provence has quietly morphed into a go to place. The food is excellent. The preparations are often inspired. We ate an excellent escargot casserole with melted Brie. The crispy eggplant is to die for. The cheese board also hits the spot. The fish presentation (a special) was the best fish I've ever eaten. My wife loves the Pot eu Feu (short ribs). Excellent duo of duck. Highly recommended.
I eat here often, and every meal I have ever had was beautifully presented, and very delicious!! The service is attentive. I like the quiet atmosphere, and know that I will be able to hear everyone, even if our group is large. I have hosted or attended several meetings, or special occasions in their private room and found the food and service there equally as delicious and supurb!
As a former chef and avid foodie, I can honestly say that my wife and I had a 5 star experience at A La Provence. Every element from the service, to the presentation, aromas and flavors was worthy of the highest praises amongst the culinary community. Best of all, it felt good to know that our patronage helped to support local farmers because A La Provence uses fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Very well done.
I had the best vegetarian meal there. I am not a vegetarian but love vegetarian food, so whenever I am at A la Provance, I get the same vegetarian dish (they only have one on the menu, so no confusing it :)
My father had steak and also liked it a lot and he had a salad (sorry forgot the name) that he said he could eat every day.
And he is very picky, I am not so much.
We also both had deserts: I had bread pudding he had a special that day: chocolate cake.
We both loved it!
Every time I am in Tallahassee, A la Provance is always frequented by my family and myself.
Dinner with friends was delightful. Our server was very helpful and attentive. And the food is consistently wonderful and it is one of the few places that we can enjoy a quiet meal in a relaxing atmosphere - that's why it is our favorite and why we keep returning!
I took mom there for her birthday. The party in the back room was loud, off key singing. The wait for our food was excruciating. The menu was printed on old paper, Staples worn out and folded in half. The decor doesn't match , ambiance was contradictory...rattan meets velvet vinyl.
The cobia was dry and lacking for visual appeal. The waitress was very well informed and attentive.
