    We all had the special of the day which was halibut and it was absolutely fantastic. We scraped out every bit of the sauce with their wonderful bread and we all hope to find it on the menu the next time we return.

    Intimate booth, sparkling crystal glasses and a bouquet of flowers on our table: the perfect beginning for a romantic date! Our waiter was very attentive and kept refilling our warm French bread basket… we chose to start with delicious moules marinières et terrine de campagne. My hubby also enjoyed a cup of butternut velouté. It was all divine! Our main courses were the day’s special: monk fish in saffron cream sauce, and my husband chose the newly added Daube provençale. I recommend a glass of the Malbec with it. I sipped a tall glass of Kir royal and it was perfect with my fish. Dessert was an outstanding serving of passion fruit tart and a mocha café. What a delightful lunch date! Not only was every morsel a true pleasure, the ambiance is relaxing (quiet, French songs in the background). It’s a trueFrench experience and I highly recommend it.

    This was our first time eating at Cafe Provence and it did not disappoint! We went with friends to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The whole experience was fantastic! Great ambiance, great service, great food! It is definitely a small space and very intimate (meaning, you are very close to the tables around you) but the music playing in the background, the decor, and just the overall ambiance males for a very special experience!

    As always it was an amazing evening! Service was exceptional, food beyond amazing! My friend and I had French onion soup, and shared the scallops Fantastic! Hubbies each had the filet and raved through every bite. Next time I’m going to try the chicken at the recommendation of the guests at the table next to us. Cafe Provence is our favorite dining location!

    We had never been here before and wow did it blow us away! The service was prompt and the tiny little restaurant took you straight to the streets of Paris with the decor and the Parisian music playing as well. The food was DIVINE! The quiche Lorraine was to die for and the tuna Niçoise salad was amazing. We also had the Amish chicken with morel sauce which was delightful. We finished it off with the apple tartin which was A+! Literally, everything we ate was exceptional and we can’t wait to go back again!
