This is a small family run French restaurant of consistency and quality. The service is always solid with knowledgeable staff and the right amount of attention. The food is classic and always delicious. My only criticism would be for a slightly larger wine list offering some value new world wines. However I have found their wines by the glass always have something to tempt the palate and support the great food.

Have eaten everything on their menu & everything is fantastic. It's like entering a restaurant in France. It's as good as any French restaurant in the world.

My wife and I came here for our anniversary. She had the crab cake and I had the rack of lamb. Both were amazing. Our booth felt intimate and the staff was very courteous. Will be coming again.

It was odd being in the restaurant with half the tables decorated rather than seating diners due to the county only allowing partial seating but the food was every bit as wonderful as always. The gnocchi with pea puree was easily one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. The halibut was as always perfectly cooked and served with an artichoke, potato puree and a lemon, caper sauce which had a delicious tart flavor tempered by the fresh peas. The service was great as usual and everything was perfect.

Cafe Provence is my favorite restaurant, I used to go a lot and haven't been in 1.5 years. I went back on Saturday and it was as amazing as ever.

Very excited for the opening of their new restaurant "Verbena" to open in the Meadowbrooks Development on 95th and Nall this April!!

We took out-of-town guests to Cafe Provence and we all truly enjoyed it. Both the beet salad and the butter lettuce and goat cheese salads were wonderful. All entrees ordered were excellent. The only complaint I heard was that one party thought that the vegetable and potato sides were just average instead of something special which is what he expected. Great atmosphere and and conversation could easily be heard vs. what we find at many restaurants these days.

Food was very good. Could be a little picky about some items, eg escargots were pretty heavy with garlic but still very tasty. Scallops very good. No complaints. Will go again for special occasion.

We were lucky enough to have a wonderful dining experience before the closure of all local dine-in restaurants. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic! Thank you! We look forward to returning when this mess is over.

The food was exceptional! Can’t believe this is the first time I have eaten at Cafe Provence-it will definitely not be the last! The wine list is extensive, service was prompt and polite, the menu has something for everyone. My only complaint is regarding the restroom -get some ventilation in there! It was damp and stuffy and smelled way too “bathroomy”. Not a good way to finish off a meal.

I’ve lived on all three coasts, and although I’ve found good food wherever I’ve lived, I have never found better food than I get every time I visit Café Provence. Although it is relatively small, everyone in my area knows about it and salivates at the mere mention of their name.

our waitress was so attentive. I ordered the wrong thing, thinking I was getting something else. When my meal came, I was surprised at what it was. Our waitress took it back and got me what I had intended to order. That was very nice.

Absolutely. Café Provence never disappoints. The food is terrific and the wine list is very nice. Although it's small, I like to think of it as 'high end neighborhood cozy'

It was fine. We really enjoyed ourselves. First time I was there. Was surprised by appearance. Thought it might be a little more upscale.
But I will be back.

This was actually the first time I was disappointed in my food. I had the Caesar salad with grilled chicken. The chicken breast was overcooked, dry and stringy. The dressing on the salad was the fishiest Caesar dressing I've ever had. Anchovy usually adds some saltiness and umami to the dressing, but this was like eating fish on lettuce. My friend had the salmon and she said it was absolutely amazing.
