Outstanding as usual. There is no better traditional French cooking in the U.S., and that includes Le Coucou in NYC. Provence cooks circles around most if not all Parisian bistros. We visit as often as possible. Order anything; you can't go wrong.

The waitstaff was not particularly attentive. We waited a long time before our order was taken. Water and iced tea were not refilled in a timely manner. The staff was friendly, just not as much on their game as I would have expected from a restaurant with this reputation.

Our meal was superb. I started with the salad composee. A kale salad with a light lemon vinaigrette with blood orange, almonds, radish and dates. I loved it! My husband had, & enjoyed, their Caesar salad. We both ordered the pork cheeks. I have never photographed food in restaurants, but almost started with this entree! Tender, tender pork cheeks, gnocchi, creamed kale. An exceptional meal. We closed sharing a lemon verbena soufflé. Soufflés are a fun, pretty food that happen to be delicious. The service was excellent, the ambiance warm & welcoming. A lovely evening.

Always a Great dining experience! It is a warm intimate dining environment and the staff is very very attentive. It is all about quality and the dinners are delicious! It is a dining experience and not just having dinner.
By far my favorite place in town and quite frankly around the world as well.

Best French in town - has been and always will be. Sauces are in the Provençal style, and delicious. Desserts are equally grand. Wine selection is fair, but passable. Service and smiles always warm, inviting and professional. French in its true form.

We had lunch for a birthday celebration and all in our party ordered the fish special of the day. It was outstanding and the portion size was appropriate. Reservations are highly recommended since it is small and popular with diners. We did make a reservation, but waited 15 minutes for a table to open. There is no space for waiting patrons so we stood in the entry which was not ideal.

What a lovely family who makes this wonderful experience available to us, in Kansas of all places. When you walk through the gorgeous blue door it is though you are transported directly from Kansas to France. Because they have stayed small, they can consistently provide exquisite food that is impossible on a larger scale. If you appreciate exceptional food, exceptional ambiance and exceptional service, Cafe Provence is a MUST!!

Café Provence is a gem. The food is always skillfully perfectly prepared and cooked perfectly. We started with the Endive au Bleu salad and savored the foie gras appetizer. I thoroughly enjoyed the Dover Sole and the others couldn't speak highly enough of the Filet Mignon Bordealise. The sauses for the Dover Sole and Filet Mignon were excellent! The service is professional, attentive, and they never rush your dining experience. I just wish they offered soufflés on the weekends.
