This place is so relaxed and enjoyable. The naturally warm welcome by the hostess sets the tone for all that follows: a menu of classic French comfort food prepared perfectly but without pretense. Several good salad choices (my wife raved about the Belgian endive, apple, walnut and bleu cheese mix) and appetizers are followed by a nice assortment of entrees (my bouillabaisse had fresh seafood in a delightful saffron broth). The servers make everyone feel welcome, and pace your meal comfortably. We are repeat customers and every time we go, we tell ourselves that we need to come back soon.

Delicious and special dining experience. Crab cake small plate was devine. Crispy on the outside moist and flavorful, fabulous sauces and celeriac root slaw. Loved it.

Belgian Endive salad with lots of crunchy walnuts, apple and bleu cheese was wonderful, as well.

Dessert was a chocolate souffle with dark chocolate sauce poured inside the airy, frothy delight. Who doesn't love a double-chocolatey yummy finish to a fabulous meal with French-pressed coffee to wash it all down. Quite memorable evening.

Typically when we eat out there is one or two parts of the meal that is just off or not well executed. Cafe Provence hit a home run with every single element. I had the chicken with a morel sauce end as garish as this sounds I wanted to lick the plate. The wine list is amazing, the food fantastic, and the coffee delightful. Portion sizes are generous and I definitely feel like it was money well spent. The staff are charming inattentive without being overbearing or pretentious. This place is a treasure.

Amazing service! Told Danielle we were there for my daughter's french project and she immediately started speaking french to her. She helped my daughter order in french AND walked us to the french market to watch a crepe being hand made. The food was devine. I cannot wait to go back to both the restaurant and the market. I highly recommend both. Absolutely outstanding food, service and ambiance.

My boyfriend and came here for his birthday. Everything we art was amazing! We had a selection of one cheese, the crab cake to start us off. They were both delicious. For our meals I ordered the chicken and he had the filet. Both of our meals were beyond spectacular. It was such a great place to celebrate a birthday. Very intimate and the staff was wonderful. We will be coming back again.

Lunch at Cafe Provence was a slice of heaven. From the warm ambiance, delicious food, wine and dessert, and the friendly yet sophisticated service, it was like being transported to a bistro in France for an afternoon. A true gem of a dining experience.

We never tire of a visit to Cafe Provence. Both my husband and I's favorite spot in KC. Lovely ambiance, very welcoming staff, and delicious, beautifully prepared French cuisine. I can close my eyes and be in a Parisian cafe. If you have never experienced the excellence of Cafe Provence, do!

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We arrived for our reservation a little early and went to the bar for a cocktail and met some very nice people. Our table was available shortly after getting our drinks. We started dinner with the mussels and the French onion soup. Traditional French cuisine done very well! My wife went for the Salmon and I went for the special, Chilean Seabass. Both were excellent and well paired with the sides. We didn’t do desert this trip but look forward to the next visit.

Had an early dinner with visitors from the U.K. Wanted to show them that KC has more delicious food besides BBQ - Café Provence did not disappoint! Excellent service from Natalie and Melanie - friendly and professional at the same time. I went light for my dinner - soup of the day which was coconut milk and curry soup and the mussels - excellent. The Brits either had the trout special or salmon - all were very happy. It was nice to hear from three world travelers that they could see why this was not only one of the best restaurants in the city but in the U.S.!
