The cuisine had great favor. The French bread was perfect. It was crusty on outside but melted in your mouth. I usually don’t like asparagus but maybe I never experienced a properly cooked asparagus. The filet mignonette bordelaise was tender with the wonderful red wine sauce. The pan-seared veal scalloping has a favorful lemon butter caper sauce.
The service was outstanding. I would highly recommended this French cafe.

Outstanding! It was our first time visiting Cafe Provence, but it will definitely not be our last. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the setting was quaint and cozy. The French Onion soup was hands-down the best I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to visit this restaurant again!

My husband and I went with another couple and had a exceptional dining experience. The men ordered filet mignons and were not disappointed the demi-glaze sauce was exceptional and Daniel's potatoes were delicious. The ladies had the seafood of the evening, sea bass, in a veloute sauce accompanied by perfectly prepared fresh yellow and zucchini squash. The crab cake appetizer was tasty and enjoyed by the group. Our male guest enjoyed the white bean soup and my husband had the French Onion soup which was very good. The fresh raspberry sorbet was just the perfect ending to the meal. The restuarant has a nice but not extensive or overly expensive wine list .Our server was attentive, informative and humorous. It was a delightful evening.

For a change this month, I went with the Salad Nicoise while my lunch partner had the chicken. As usual, excellent in all ways! The salad had plentiful tuna and a light dressing - I couldn't resist having some of the potatoes even though I have been trying the keto-diet....I did refrain from the bread (which my lunch partner gladly took my share).

Coffee and a bite of the carrot cake dessert (I said I was trying the keto-diet, not that I was actually totally succeeding!) rounded off an excellent meal. Thanks Café friends!

As always the food was marvelous and we had requested a booth and that request was honored. There was a glare facing the front of the restaurant, but it dissipated as the sun got lower. Our waiter was very helpful is telling us about the menu and making sure we were pleased. The balsamic tomato soup was the best thing I could imagine!

I had lunch here with a friend and my son recently. Even though it was hot outside, I tried the corn soup because fresh sweet corn in July is always good. It was very creamy and the corn flavor was as good as I had hoped. My son and I shared the pate starter, which we both enjoyed. The bread is worth every carb. My composed salad was also wonderful.

Excellent lunch meal. We both started with salads - mine the goat cheese, his the Belgian endive. Entree scallops for me, quiche for him. We shared a divine chocolate torte/ mousse to finish. The food is outstanding , including the entree vegetables: haricots vert, carrot & potato. I run out of superlatives. The food is always excellent, beautifully prepared. The service impeccable.

Cafe Provance never disappoints!!
OurSaturday lunch was perfection! I had the chicken crepe and asked to substitute salad for the veggies and they graciously agreed. My husband had the special, which was fish and he said it was excellent. For dessert we shared a caramel flan with blackberries which quickly disappeared!
The service was excellent.

The service was excellent, particularly since we had special requests of no dairy and received dairy items twice. (The person ordering didn’t realize the dishes had dairy) The wait staff returned with the non dairy dish promptly and without fanfare.
All our meals were delicious.

In search of a romantic restaurant, Cafe Provence hit the spot. A nice wine list with several BTG choices. The dining room was bustling with conversation and well dressed diners. Our server was attentive and willing to provide recommendations. We enjoyed the marinated olives paired with a single cheese and nicely crusted bread. The Chilean sea bass was perfectly pan seared and served with a delicious seafood broth cabbage and shrimp. The beef filet was tender and served with a rich sauce and French scalloped potatoes. The banana chocolate crepe was the exclamation mark. Very expensive so we may return for special occasion or focus on small plates. Be sure to visit this little taste of Paris.

We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to go somewhere new to us. We had never made it out to Cafe Provence before but the experience was outstanding. When we arrived our table was not ready ( I had requested a nice private table ) and we had to wait 30 minutes at the bar, but they provided us some nice almonds to tide us over until dinner. The wait staff, we had Debrah was outstanding . She started communicating with us while we were waiting at the bar and she could not have been more helpful and pleasant. It was a very worthwhile experience and we will definitely return again - soon.
