Unquestionnnably one of the best restaurants in KC. Superb food, well crafted. Portions good-sized as well. Comfortable/fancy ambiance (Don't go in sloppy jeans & t-shirt, but nice jeans and nice shirt fits in, but so does suit and tie). We attended Beaujolais Nouveau night, prix fixe menu including wine. Coquille St. Jacques appetizer included 3 large sea scallops, well-seasoned, cooked to point of tenderness. Butter Lettuce salad with golf-ball-sized fried goat cheese. Perfectly done. Accomapnied by several pieces of wonderfully crusty french bread and soft butter. Braised Short rib melt-in-your mouth tender, served over unmistakably fresh, house-made mashed potatoes and gravy. Halibut seasoned with nice coating, but tender, juicy, & flavorful, served over polenta. Desserts: Wow! Profitoles (2), each about Slider-bun size, Crispy, almost hard pastry chell, with scoop of vanilla ice cream, covered with chocolate ganache and powdered sugar. Goat cheese tart (essentially cheesecake made with goat cheese) light and flavorful. Topped with fruit compote (bursting with fruit flavor), whipped cream and pistacchio nuts. Amazing dinner. Price reasonable for quantity and quality of food. Certainly notcheap, but you can spend a lot more for a lot less in many other restaurants. If you haven't tried this place, do so. If you haven't been in awhile, go back. BTW, that night, owner (with 2 others) provided background french music. Great touch.

A little pricey but Overall outstanding. Food was incredible. Small place, crowded, so not real intimate, so more like you would find in Paris or other places in Europe. Having traveled several times to Europe it was comparable in many ways. But more friendly.

Authentic, simple and very tasty French cooking. The broth on my Moules Mariniere was precisely balanced, the acidity of the wine offsetting perfectly the richness of the butter. A glass of Picpoul de Pinet went nicely with the moules. How many places can you get a glass of Picpoul? It was a delightful meal and I intend to return whenever I am in KC.

Heard many great things about this restaurant, and was looking forward to going for the 1st time. My grouper was dry, tough, and bland. My daughter had the pasta dish and said it was ok. Not exactly a rave review. My husband’s bass was apparently excellent. My salad was mediocre, but carrot soup that they both ordered was very good. Cafe Provence is warm and cozy, and service was very good, but my dinner did not live up to their great reputation.

An outstanding meal. We elected the Tuesday prix fixe menu. The combinations and offerings are always a great dining experience. Mushroom truffle soup, smoked salmon, pork cheeks with sweet potato and brussel sprouts, apple caramel crepe. All well presented and excellent. A very good value as well. The service was very good. Pleasant, helpful and not intrusive. The cafe has a very comfortable, warm ambience. Highly recommend.
