I can see why this restaurant is rated #1 In KC! Great service & ambience & the food is superb! Best meal I've had in years!
This is a great place for a date. Intimate and quiet enough for conversation. The service is attentive without being annoying. The food was very flavorful, but I wouldn’t say it was exceptional. I ordered the stuffed rabbit leg and didn’t expect the meat to come all chopped up. I enjoyed it though. I must have misunderstood the description. The mussels were amazing. They were small but there were a ton of them and they were served with warm French bread. I ordered the potatoes gratin as a side and they were definitely not what I expected. They were dry and bland and didn’t even look appetizing. I would not order them again. I’ll go back for the lamb or the filet - saw them at a nearby table and they looked really good!
We have heard so much about Cafe Provence but this was our first visit. Having vacationed many times in France we are quite familiar with the food from the varies regions and found many of the menus offerings to be reminiscent of our travels there. The onion soup was superb and the two sauces on my lamb chops were delicate and carefully prepared. What I noticed most was the relaxed atmosphere where quiet leisurely dining is often lost in American restaurants. Prairie Village has a unique, laid back atmosphere and a leisurely walk before dinner set the mood. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable and very helpful with our dinner choices. We can’t wait to return.
We went to Cafe Provence for our anniversary dinner. I noted in my reservation that this was for an anniversary, but we did not get any acknowledgement from the staff. I always want to like this restaurant better than I do - my problem is that the venue is very crowded. Both the inside and outside dining is right on top of other diners, and it was hard to hold a conversation. The food as always was terrific. Thanks!
The ambience and cuisine were tantalizingly superb, as always.
Always absolutely perfect.
Ate outside and it was a lovely, unhurried meal. Wonderful food and great service.
20 year anniversary!
As usual the experience was awesome, delicious food, friendly attentive service, excellent wine list.
Dessert was excellent as well. Our favorite restaurant!
Best food in Kansas City!
Unbelievably good food for a modest price. Every time we come here it is an amazing experience. Knowledgeable staff regarding food allergies - accommodated a gluten and nut allergy just fine!
Mother's Day 2018: Cafe Provence was crowded even at 1:45p. Both my wife and I ordered L'endive au Bleu salads and the Coquille Saint-Jacques featuring scallops. The food and sauces were excellent, and perfectly seasoned. The service was efficient though unobtrusive, and we weren't being interrupted by overly solicitious wait staff as often happens. A wonderful dining experience!!!
Superb as always!! Love love love!
The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Amazing French food. Would have liked to try everything on the menu. Will be back!
Excellent meal as always. This is our favorite restaurant . Escargot is perfect and the veal is very delicious.
An enjoyable day with great food and friends. Would have ordered another glass of wine if I had been asked
Excellent food, great ambiance.
I took a 92 year old lady on a walker there for lunch and the staff was so kind, helpful and the owner even walked my guest half way down the block so she could access the handicapped cut out to get in my car. The food is always fabulous but the staff makes this restaurant outstanding.
This is bar none the best restaurant in Kansas City.
This was our wedding anniversary and my wife’s birthday, neither of which were acknowledged by staff even though I noted it when making reservations through Open Table. We waited throughout dinner to hear acknowledgement of our special occasion which never came. As they are fond of saying at French restaurants in Johnson County, C’est la vie!
This is one of our favorite spots to go for dinner or lunch! The food is outstanding along with the staff! We have come often either for lunch and have brought our family members from out of town. This is a gem of a restaurant!
The food is always tasty. I ordered fish and my date had the veal. The service is usually a little disappointing, mostly I think because the restaurant is run short-staffed.
Best food in KC!
Always excellent food, attentive service, nice wine list. One of our favorites.
Corner window seating really set the tone for a wonderful dinner with my sweetheart. Great food, great for people watching, waiter was very informed of the food menu and the wine menu.
We will visit more times in 2018. Great food and wine, excellent service. Authentic french cuisine. Ranks right up there at the top with our favorite restaurants in Kansas City. Very customer oriented....reservation was fulfilled with seating location just as requested. Foodies, you have to go here.
They always satisfy, the food and service are first class
Great place, excellent food!
Our experience was perfect! Excellent food, service, and atmosphere. We will be back.
We frequent this restaurant for our Administrative Professionals Day and we love it.
One of the best French restaurants in Kansas City. Great neighborhood feel to it. Staff is very friendly. Food is excellent and Prairie Village is lucky to have such a high quality place.
My husband and I like this place for a special dinner together. We were disappointed to learn that the Tuesday night specials are pre-ordered by others beforehand; therefore we were disappointed there was a limited supply of the sea bass (the reason we chose this night to dine here), and we had to order off the menu. That information is not posted anywhere. Also, I wonder if Open Table is also limited to reservation times. The options we had were 5:15 and 7:30. Next time, I'll call the restaurant directly.
The food was wonderful as was the service.
This restaurant is excellent. We’ve dined here before and will be back. Only concern is how close the tables are and people have to be so cautious trying to get by.
Wonderful as always!
Very nice evening. My reservation was for 6.15pm and when we arrived the restaurant was full. Our table was ready for us upon our arrival. Very nice atmosphere, good food, good service. We were not rushed out like in many restaurants these days.
Best restaurant in Kansas City
Excellent choice for a quick delicious anniversary lunch.
