The best! We love Cafe Provence - everything is first rate and fresh. The service is always great as is the coffee and desserts. Goat cheese salad, roast chicken and soufflé with a delightful Rose was fantastic.

I suggested this restaurant for our small office groups post Christmas celebration. They had not been and the restaurant was LOVED by all. I am so happy with the food quality, the great service and fresh and healthy options offered. The vegetarian dish I ordered was FABULOUS!

We had four co-workers in from out of town for a large meeting the next day (over 200 people). We wanted to show off KC a bit for something besides our excellent BBQ. it doesn't get any better than Café provence for that! We had a late seating (8:30 pm) - while we knew that the kitchen closed at 9:00, the staff were wonderful about letting us talk, enjoy the sampler plate and mussels for starters (you have to try the stuffed dates), and some good wine (recommend the Rothschild white Bordeaux). Entrees were the sea bass, duck, two salmons, and my favorite, the Amish Chicken. Everyone was happy and we shared (except the guy with the duck - it was gone too fast!). Desserts were the new carrot cake, apple tart, and goat cheese cheesecake with coffee and some after dinner drinks. With folks in from Washington DC and Dallas - all were impressed and were bragging on their dinner at the meeting the next day!

Obviously a popular place. Many locals as well as we out-of-town guest. Would recommend Cafe' Provence to anyone looking for a French meal and surroundings. Reminds us of our experience in France over the years. Much closer!

Loved this restaurant; will definitely eat there again. Excellent food with professional, friendly and attentive service. Rated 4/5 for ambiance because there is only a heavy drape inside the main door to keep out the cold and since our table was close to this, it was a bit drafty and our feet got cold.

As always, Cafe Provence never disappoints. We had the Prix Fixe meal on Tuesday evening and it was superb from first bite to last. The charming waiter remembered us from previous visits and remembered what we drank. I love the Prix Fixe Tuesdays because it saves wavering back and forth between all the excellent choices on the menu. Try it....you'll love it!

The best restaurant in Kansas City… Actually my favorite restaurant around the world! It is a warm and cozy environment with a very attentive and knowledgeable staff. The food is the most delicious French food I have ever had.
There’s a high attention to detail with the service and with the food. We go there for all of our special occasions and times in between as well.
The family that owns the restaurant are always so warm and welcoming. You feel like family when you are there!

As close to an authentic French restaurant as you can get without an airline ticket. Everything on the menu is prepared to perfection. Small and intimate. The staff, mostly family, is friendly and efficient.

It was a lovely evening out for a holiday date. Our server , Angus, was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The food was wonderful. I had the duck and I would have it again. So tender. the parsnip puree was a perfect touch. the carrot curry soup was spot on too. My date was very happy with his meal of mussels , crab cake and his carrot cake. We will enjoy another meal there soon. Thank you for such a lovely place.

Absolutely my favorite restaurant with my friends--amazing menu- extraordinary taste in food choices. We loved our waiter and although tables are close together, it was still quiet for conversation AND we loved the couple next to us. Truly the best restaurant in Kansas City and Johnson County. I would be proud to take any one there. I have been to many restaurants in the area and this is THE BEST!

Always a special meal. A friend and I have a monthly appointment for one of the best meals in Kansas City (apparently, with their fourth year of being in the Open Table top 100, also one of the top restaurants in the country!). We have a glass of wine (the Rothschild is my go-to), cup of soup (black bean on the day we went this month) and I try to choose between the daily special and several of my favorites. Went with a fav this time - Poulet aux Morilles. There is a dinner version also. It doesn't get any better!

What a lovely meal. The place was hopping when we arrived. We hung out by the bar waiting for our table. The bartender was observant enough to come all the way around to take care of us. He even offered to transfer the tab directly to our table without request. Our waiter was Angus. He had the perfect combination of knowledgable, unobtrusive, and friendly. To top it off, the food was marvelous. Their food is always seasonally relevant, and cooked to perfection. There was really no better place to spend our five year anniversary.
