In the words of my food adventuring 13 year old granddaughter- It is amazing that a restaurant could have a menu where everything is incredible. I heartily agree!

Superb French cuisine! Everything that we dined upon was scrumptious and worthy of its reputation. I highly recommend and will definitely be back, especially for that soufflé!

Cafe Provence is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Johnson County. The place is small and it is always crowded, but the visit is worth the inconvenience. I’m afraid if they ever move, it will not be the same. I have been there several times since they first opened, and I’ll definitely be back again.

Continues to be my favorite French restaurant. Everything was impeccable. Pate was divine! Filet mignon was wonderful , as were the sides that accompanied it. The bordelaise sauce was amazing!! Top shelf from start to finish!! No wonder they receive so many awards…well deserved!

The food was out of this world. Everything is made per order not held in heating trays like so many restaurants. The service was terrific. On the night we were there a large group of young women had a birthday party that was so loud that my dinner partner and I couldn’t hear each other across the table. We thought our wine glasses would shatter from the shrieking. Just bad luck on our part.

We are regulars at Cafe Provence. First time to go on Monday souffle night. Endive salad delicious, sea bass very good, Amaretto souffle devine! Tip-make reservations, several without could not get a table. (Having to go to The French Market is a good substitute!)

This visit to Cafe Provence was a “date” night for my wife and I. We decided to eat inside rather than out because we enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant’s interior very much, reminding us of many of the small and intimate places we tried in France. Our experience this time was in keeping with our prior visits to CP - the food (a beautifully prepared portion of Halibut for both of us!) was excellent, the service was very good, and the noise level was bearable even considering this was a very busy Saturday night. In short, nothing to complain about at our favorite Kansas City restaurant, and we’re already looking forward to our next visit!

I have loved eating at this restaurant for many years. Yesterday was special. They had a small French style jazz band playing for Bastille Day. It was 90 when I arrived but the most pleasant outside eating experience I can remember. The food, as usual, was terrific. Altogether, and extremely memorable evening. Lots of people, fun band, great ambiance, and great food. What could be better.
