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.

I have never been to France but I feel like I have after dining at Café Provence. Everything is perfect. The size of the café, the ambiance, friendly staff, delicious food, the presentation, even the silverware is special. I feel welcomed every time I dine there. The restaurant is tucked in among other shops in the mall but make no mistake, this is a special experience. You can dine casually or create a very special occasion at dinner. The cozy bar fits right in and is not at all intrusive. Put this place on your staycation list of things to do.
