Birthday dinner was understatedly elegant. French onion soup was hot, lush and gooey (all good!). Baked chicken and veal entrees were nicely presented and delicious.

Cafe Provence is always a wonderful experience. It has a relatively small menu and everything is always cooked perfectly.. The best food in town. No wonder it’s been named one of the best 100 restaurants in the country.

A memorable lunch! The Sea Bass with Saffron Sauce was the best I’ve had in KC. I keep dreaming of the Citron Olive Oil Cake dessert. I want that again.

My kids were in town and treated me to my birthday dinner at Cafe Provence. Yes, we had to wait 20-25 min even though we had a reservation, but that’s because the people who were seated at our ore-assigned table took forever to finish. The staff was doing everything they could to get the table turned over quickly.
Dinner was outstanding. Don’t overlook the vegetable meal! And chestnut soufflés was superb!
And service was exceptional - not remembering the server’s name right now, but he was experienced and thorough!!

It was the most delightful evening. The service was excellent, right there, never hovering, never rushed. All of us ordered something different, and we each thoroughly enjoyed. The warmth and charm of the restaurant is only exceeded by the quality of the food.
