    We went there on recommendation from a friend for our 45th wedding anniversary. The service, food and atmosphere was wonderful. We would recommend shades on the front window. The first table we had I faced the window and my husband was a silhouette because of the bright light coming through the window. We asked to move and they moved us. A shade would have solved the problem. We did have a wonderful time and Angus was very professional and accommodating!

    Cafe Provence is our favorite restaurant in Kansas City. The food is authentic French cuisine that’s perfectly prepared, the staff is friendly and attentive but not intrusive, and the restaurant feels like a cozy bistro. Cage Provence is a wonderful place for special occasions - but you don’t need a special occasion to dine there.

    Absolutely delicious. The cost was worth the price and service and the portion sizes were great. Many upscale restaurants offer terrific food for higher prices but the portions leave a lot to be desired - not so at Cafe Provence. Will definitely be returning again.

    Because of heat we ate inside. Low noise level allows for quiet conversation. Excellent menu selection with a price fix menu available. Excellent service. Excellent wine menu. Our food was brought to the table and was very hot as though it had just been removed from the stove. Our food was excellent. Have NEVER had a bad meal here.

    Great location for a special occasion. Very good selection of dishes -- more continental, rather than strictly French. The summer salad of tomatoes, watermelon and cheese with balsamic was fantastic. Pork tenderloin and veal scallops were expertly prepared. And the cream of mushroom soup had the right amount of texture and seasoning, with the last drops mopped up with the remnants of our French bread.

    We arrived early for our reservation and they accommodated our early seating, so that was a nice service touch. We selected this restaurant because we were going to see Mrs Harris Goes to Paris movie and were getting into the mood. The decor is perfect for a Paris feel, the food is lovely and the service was great. Highly recommend before heading to a movie at the Arts Theater.

    Always a treat to have dinner here when celebrating a special occassion, or just for dinner. Our server, Tom, was so attentive and helpful, and the food, as always, did not disappoint. There wasn't a single "hiccup" to our entire 2.5 hour dinner experience. Not someplace we eat at often, because it is a little pricey, but definitely worth the money overall.

    Food and service - excellent all the way around. Sat outside on patio. A car in front row of parking was running/idling almost the entire time we dined. Maybe a sign that states not to leave vehicles running right by diners would be great. Otherwise, perfect meal as always.

    Great food! Really enjoyed our meal, and service was just the right level of attention yet time for us to enjoy ourselves at the table. The heirloom tomato and watermelon salad was unbelievably good. Refreshingly light on a hot summer evening, with an exquisite and unique taste. Salmon was perfectly cooked and the escalope de veal was delicious. A great dining experience. The room is small inside, with seating maximized, so it did seem a bit closed-in, but we had a table in the corner so it still felt like we had a modicum of privacy. Highly recommend. It jumped straight to our top three restaurants in the entire Kansas City area!

    The best restaurant experience I’ve had in so long. The food was incredible, I had the halibut special and my boyfriend had the chicken. The halibut was amazing and the crawfish cream sauce was the greatest sauce. My boyfriend said the chicken was the best chicken he’s ever had. Our waiter was amazing and gave great recommendations and was the perfect amount of attentive but also let us enjoy the meal. I cannot wait to go back and will be recommending it to everyone looking for a nice dinner.
