In a word Superb! I had the French Onion Soup followed by the Filet.

We ended the meal with the Banana Crepe with chocolate sauce.

Great evening! Service and Atmosphere were as I say Superb!

Our favorite restaurant in KC!

This restaurant is a gem In Kansas City. The food is outstanding! I only wish they would bring back my favorite kale salad, and swap the farm raised salmon for wild caught. Other than that there is very little I would change. Love this place!!!

My husband and I enjoy celebrating our anniversary every year with delicious food and wine. This year, we enjoyed our meal at Cafe Providence a great deal. The food was excellent, the service was attentive without being overly aggressive, and the overall ambiance of the place was cozy and intimate. Note that the seating capacity seemed small, so I would definitely recommend making reservations to ensure you get a table. Cafe Providence will definitely become a regular on our rotation of quiet places to celebrate with fine food in the future.

Cafe Provence remains our "special occasion" restaurant because of the overall excellence of the food, the service, and the ambiance. We particularly enjoy the intimate atmosphere that reminds us very much of some of the restaurants we've been fortunate to experience in Europe. The food is always cooked to perfection, and there is enough variety in the menu to appeal to any taste. Bar none, this is the best place to dine in the Kansas City area!

I made my reservation at 1pm for 5:00 on a Tuesday through Open Table. Arrived to an empty restaurant except for a table of 6-grandparents, parents and 2 small children. We were seated next to the kids at the table closest to the door where every other patron would walk by us as they arrived. We asked for a different table, and were told no because we made our reservation too late. So that is fine, but a single woman with no reservation came in next and she was seated at a plum table in the front window. We asked our waiter if we could move, he made it happen, we were moved to the table by the kitchen! We quickly ate and left before half the restaurant was full. For all the people who recommended Cafe Provence to us our experience was lackluster. And my guess is you could be penalized for making a reservation, so just show up, you may get in.

Unquestionnnably one of the best restaurants in KC. Superb food, well crafted. Portions good-sized as well. Comfortable/fancy ambiance (Don't go in sloppy jeans & t-shirt, but nice jeans and nice shirt fits in, but so does suit and tie). We attended Beaujolais Nouveau night, prix fixe menu including wine. Coquille St. Jacques appetizer included 3 large sea scallops, well-seasoned, cooked to point of tenderness. Butter Lettuce salad with golf-ball-sized fried goat cheese. Perfectly done. Accomapnied by several pieces of wonderfully crusty french bread and soft butter. Braised Short rib melt-in-your mouth tender, served over unmistakably fresh, house-made mashed potatoes and gravy. Halibut seasoned with nice coating, but tender, juicy, & flavorful, served over polenta. Desserts: Wow! Profitoles (2), each about Slider-bun size, Crispy, almost hard pastry chell, with scoop of vanilla ice cream, covered with chocolate ganache and powdered sugar. Goat cheese tart (essentially cheesecake made with goat cheese) light and flavorful. Topped with fruit compote (bursting with fruit flavor), whipped cream and pistacchio nuts. Amazing dinner. Price reasonable for quantity and quality of food. Certainly notcheap, but you can spend a lot more for a lot less in many other restaurants. If you haven't tried this place, do so. If you haven't been in awhile, go back. BTW, that night, owner (with 2 others) provided background french music. Great touch.

A little pricey but Overall outstanding. Food was incredible. Small place, crowded, so not real intimate, so more like you would find in Paris or other places in Europe. Having traveled several times to Europe it was comparable in many ways. But more friendly.

Authentic, simple and very tasty French cooking. The broth on my Moules Mariniere was precisely balanced, the acidity of the wine offsetting perfectly the richness of the butter. A glass of Picpoul de Pinet went nicely with the moules. How many places can you get a glass of Picpoul? It was a delightful meal and I intend to return whenever I am in KC.
