Busy lunch crowd so recommend making reservations. Yummy food served in a charming, relaxed dining room. Service staff pleasant without being overbearing. Perfect lunch experience. Already planning a return visit, perhaps dinner.

As always, Cafe Provence delivers! I had the Pork Cheek and my date had the Halibut (Special); both plates were completely cleaned - along with the Dates we had for a starter. We always love coming here and will continue to come back.

I love the food. So tasteful. The only issue I have is with the coffee. I would prefer coffee by the cup, but everything regarding Provence is top of theline.

Most recently went to Cafe Provence for Valentines Day. All I can say is WOW! Food, service, ambiance were all top notch. Don't expect it to be a cheap date, but you won't be disappointed. We'll be back.

We dined here for my wife’s birthday. Her brother has raved about it in the past. It was our first time here. Even though the restaurant is small, the privacy level is maintained pretty well. Our meal was wonderful. We started off with the chicken wild rice soup and the scallops. I had the veal and my wife had the Chilean sea bass. We lucked out as it was soufflé night and we were able to share a raspberry chocolate soufflé. All in all, a wonderful evening.

We were celebrating Valentine’s Day early. I had seen chocolate soufflé on the website and asked about it. Luckily, Monday nights are soufflé night. We immediately put in our order. The service was impeccable, not too anxious over us just watchful. The onion soup was fabulous. I had the crab cake, which is all pure fresh crab! My husband had the salmon and vegetables and raved about the preparation. And the soufflé!! My new favorite thing. Gorgeous presentation with a pitcher of chocolate ganache to pour in and over. We will go back on Monday nights!!! Perfect date night experience!!

We've never had a bad meal there, and this was not an exception. The wait staff is one of the best around--personable, efficient, attentive. Good wine, good food, good service makes for a good evening.

Dinner was superb. Wine list small but very well selected for price and quality. This may be the best food in greater Kansas City. On par with Michael Smith, for example, but in a modest, French country setting.

A delightful lunch. We have often eaten there for diner but not for lunch--so it was not a surprise that we had a wonderful luncheon. We had the soup--a wonderful rich mushroom. My wife had the special for the day--cod and nicely prepared vegetables. I found my chicken to be a bit dry but the sauce was excellent--loved those mushrooms. Sorbet shared for desert. We made 11 am reservations and were glad we had as by noon it was full with some disappointed drop ins.

This place probably does have the best onion soup in the Midwest, and the Fois Gras is better than you can get in the best restaurants on the coasts. If you like French food and wine, this place is a must!
