Terrible service. Waitress forgot our main course and announced to entire table that my $70 tip was not enough. Use to be our favorite restaurant. Our waitress was the owner of the restaurant which even made me more surprised that the service was so poor. Will not be returning to this restaurant again. Tatsu is much better food and experience. I am sure with the amount of people in the dining room - fire code was not being met. My ice tea was only refilled once and out bottle of white wine was warm as the restaurant did not have ice buckets???

Such a quaint and lovely spot for dinner! It's intimate and quiet and the food is delicious as well as beautifully prepared. Our server recommended a fabulous wine -- which we will have the next time we dine! Escargot is the finest I've had, even compared to living abroad!

Went to Cafe Provence based on a list I saw on the internet of 100 of America's best restaurants. I was short sold on just how good this was. Arguably the best food in the city. Service was excellent. Very eager to return.

We chose to dine at Cafe Provence for our 20th Wedding Anniversary which we noted in our reservation. It was very disappointing that at no time during the evening did anyone from the restaurant even acknowledge our special occasion. That would have meant alot but nothing.....

We had Gaspare for a server - he was fine - certainly not outgoing or talkative. Served the food and wine, etc. If asked a question - he'd respond but nothing other than that. I don't believe he ever asked how our meal was.

The food was outstanding - including the bread/butter to start and then we both had the halibut which was VERY good. We shared a creme brulee for dessert and a bottle of wine. Total w/ tip $170.

I'm torn with overall rating as the food was wonderful however if you are hoping for an overall experience that makes you feel special - this is probably not what i'd recommend.

We dined at Cafe Provence go celebrate my wife’s birthday and we’re not disappointed. The food was expertly prepared as it always is, and my Manhattan was superb. Our server was excellent and knew the menu inside and out. Only very minor disappointment was the lack of recognition of a birthday celebration which I out into the open table reservation. Doing that generally leads to some type of recognition but that didn’t happen. However, that won’t stop us from coming back to this excellent neighborhood restaurant.

This is our favorite restaurant. We enjoy the Tuesday four course dinners as well as ordering from the
main menu. They also offer nice wine by the glass choices. So great food, great service, a nice ambiance, and a wonderful variety of choices add up to a great restaurant.

Café Provence is the place for special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations). We thought the soup de jour and the veal entre were exceptional. Frequent diners can't help but be impressed with the consistent high quality and creative presentation of the various dishes.

It was my family’s first time dining at the Cafe and it was absolutely amazing. The ambience is relaxing and quaint and service was beyond what I could ever ask for; very attentive and friendly. The food was incredibly delicious, especially the salmon. I can tell why this restaurant is extremely popular and it certainly does live up to its reputation. I wholeheartedly recommend you try out this restaurant!

A favorite for my wife and I for years. She's retired from the restaurant biz and used to own/operate a high end French restaurant in Orange County that was frequented by many prominent Californians, including the governor. She loves Cafe Provence, as do I. You will too.

I have dined at Cafe Provence for my own enjoyment, but I recently went their for a business lunch. The food was elegantly presented and my guests, who go there often, were pleased. It's a little cramped for the relaxed, conversational lunch I was hoping for, but everyone seemed happy. I would say it was a little pricey for lunch and our bill for 3 was way over $100. That was my decision, though, so I wouldn't fault the restaurant for that because I knew that going in. It's a beautiful restaurant and I would wholeheartedly recommend it for the quality of food and friendly ambiance.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Cafe Provence last weekend. We were in Kansas City for the Big 12 tournament and found the restaurant on Trip Adviser. The food, service, ambiance were perfect. The owner even called the next day to congratulate us because our team won the tournament. We will definitely return on our next trip to K. C.

Not only was the food fabulous, our service was equally so. And, we had such a great (long-overdue) time that we over-stayed our welcome! We apologize--we simply had no idea. At one point, I looked over to see a table still seated, so we chatted on, oblivious to the fact the folks seated at the table were staff waiting for us to leave!

Again, we APOLOGIZE for enjoying your hospitality too much--which is actually a way of saying:
YOU ARE THE BEST NOT ONLY IN THE CITY BUT THE ENTIRE AREA!
