Cafe Provence is always a pleasureful experience. The atmosphere, the food, the presentation - everything is created with great care, and I always feel as though I am in Paris as soon as I enter this charming restaurant.

It was my family’s first time dining at the Cafe and it was absolutely amazing. The ambience is relaxing and quaint and service was beyond what I could ever ask for; very attentive and friendly. The food was incredibly delicious, especially the salmon. I can tell why this restaurant is extremely popular and it certainly does live up to its reputation. I wholeheartedly recommend you try out this restaurant!

A favorite for my wife and I for years. She's retired from the restaurant biz and used to own/operate a high end French restaurant in Orange County that was frequented by many prominent Californians, including the governor. She loves Cafe Provence, as do I. You will too.

I have dined at Cafe Provence for my own enjoyment, but I recently went their for a business lunch. The food was elegantly presented and my guests, who go there often, were pleased. It's a little cramped for the relaxed, conversational lunch I was hoping for, but everyone seemed happy. I would say it was a little pricey for lunch and our bill for 3 was way over $100. That was my decision, though, so I wouldn't fault the restaurant for that because I knew that going in. It's a beautiful restaurant and I would wholeheartedly recommend it for the quality of food and friendly ambiance.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Cafe Provence last weekend. We were in Kansas City for the Big 12 tournament and found the restaurant on Trip Adviser. The food, service, ambiance were perfect. The owner even called the next day to congratulate us because our team won the tournament. We will definitely return on our next trip to K. C.

Not only was the food fabulous, our service was equally so. And, we had such a great (long-overdue) time that we over-stayed our welcome! We apologize--we simply had no idea. At one point, I looked over to see a table still seated, so we chatted on, oblivious to the fact the folks seated at the table were staff waiting for us to leave!

Again, we APOLOGIZE for enjoying your hospitality too much--which is actually a way of saying:
YOU ARE THE BEST NOT ONLY IN THE CITY BUT THE ENTIRE AREA!

As always, the food and service was outstanding. We had an amazing, friendly server. The meal was well paced. We started with the soup of the day which happened to be potato leek, went on to beef filet for the entree, and finished with dessert and capucino. Cafe Provence is our favorite restaurant for both lunch and dinner. The quality of both the food and service never falters.

Delightful from the moment we walked in to the restaurant and were greeted by our server. My daughter and I had the Prix Fixe menu. Every course was delicious and beautifully presented. The ambience is lovely in this restaurant. Our waiter, Gaspare, was attentive and friendly and took wonderful care of us.

My husband and I celebrated a belated Valentine’s Day at cafe Provence. We shared the cheese plate, crab cake, veal scaloppini, and Brussels sprouts for dinner. We both loved the crab cake and the veal, I would recommend ordering either! I would definitely go back to cafe Provence for another special occasion!

We truly enjoyed our evening at Cafe Provence. So many reasons to like this quaint restaurant. We liked that it is not a chain (very important to us); we liked that we could actually talk to each other and hear each other. So many restaurants are too loud and this one is not; Excellent service. It is a bit pricey so it is definitely a special occasion destination.
Now, about the food. Every sauce on what we had was perfect and that is what french food is all about. We shared pan-seared scallops with a mustard mushroom cream sauce for our appetizer. For main course, I had the poulet aux morilles - pan-seared amish chicken breast with a morel brandy cream sauce. The chicken was juicy and so tender. The sauce had little morel mushrooms in it. It all just melted in my mouth. Phil had the special which was a halibut over a bed of smashed cabbage and potatoes. I don't know what his sauce was but it was delicious. For dessert we shared the tarte au chocolat. It had a shortbread crust which is one of my favorites and set in a ganache sauce. Once we save up some money, we will be back!

Perhaps - crowded and noisy - ordered food I have had there before - recipes.different perhaps. Duck. Seasoning not same, duck not crispy, not an A. Salmon just ok. Bland. Waiter not really friendly - overall just ok in the food/ service arena. Long overdue for a decorative upgrade., expensive for the quality and experience. Certainly not over the top.
