I had the fish special and my sister ordered the salad nicoise. Both were tasty. The wait staff is always busy and the space is small so there's not much privacy.

A group went for a Christmas lunch and it was delicious. We all enjoyed cauliflower soup; also salmon was delicious. The presentation is so nice. Waiters helpful but not pushy. A great place with original menu. We all had generous portions but split desserts; carrot cake and flourless chocolate cake- both delicious.
Atmosphere is cozy and intimate. Will definitely go back.

Cafe Provence is possibly our favorite KC area restaurant. Their Tuesday night three course menu is always fun and innovative. The one issue we have is that the same side of potatoes appears in too many entrees. Would love gnocchi, pilaf or roasted potatoes instead.

Our meal was superb. So was the total experience. We went on a Tuesday evening and both ordered the Prix Fix $42 menu. All the courses appealed to us: shrimp with aioli, tomato onion tart with goat cheese (awesome!), lamb stew with peas and potatoes (lamb in all forms is a favorite of mine - this was exceptional), cranberry gateau to finish - the tart a perfect balance to complete the meal. The food is always beautifully prepared and presented and flat out wonderful to eat. The service is excellent and a great match to the quality of the food. The tables are close together - in this case cozy. You can interact with the nearby table - or not. Either choice feels right. On this night our line of three tables had all ordered the prix fixe and we enjoyed the collegiality of praising an excellent meal.

For my birthday, I chose the Cafe because of their fixed price dinner--four wonderful courses. My wife didn't argue as she loves the Cafe! We went at 5:30 pm as we had in the past had trouble getting later reservations (so make them, don't just show up). This night it was quiet at that time but by our departure around 7 it was full. We enjoyed the first course of shrimp with mustard aioli and tarragon as well as the second course--tarte aux oignos which was a light tart with onion, bacon and goat cheese. The main course was a braised lamb stew with vegetables. The final course was Gateau au Caneberg--a cranberry cake! A great way to celebrate a birthday--or any Tuesday when they do the ever changing fixed price dinner.

This precious gem is a taste of France here in the Midwest. Must give praise to Danielle who not only brought our meal with pleasant professionalism, but also advised us as to the Strasburg Christmas market. We're planning a trip to France next November and she didn't want us to miss the Christmas market!!! The pate was authentic, the cod was fresh, and I wanted to lick the plate to get all the sauce. My favorite!

We enjoyed an anniversary dinner at Cafe Provence, experiencing the usual great service and amazingly good food. This is our "special occasion" restaurant of choice, and has never disappointed. Probably as close to a little French bistro as you can find this side of the Atlantic!

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.

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!!
