La Provence Ratings and Reviews
My father wanted French food so I booked a table . . . . he has had a couple of strokes and is unable to communicate fully. Our server, Adrianna, was an absolute delight! She was able to "talk" with Pop and recommend favorites! The meal was ever so good and the service was an absolute blessing. Thank YOU to all who assisted us . . . . . when quality of life depends on good food and understanding . . . . you hit it outa the park!
Lovely Ladies Birthday Lunch. Lunch choices were plentiful and each came with choice of sides. Service was very attentive; food was very good and quickly served. Birthday girl was given complimentary dessert and we enjoyed a very unhurried afternoon. All in all, a splendid place.
Visited La Provence because their burger was rated highly by the SacBee early in 2017. Two of us had burgers, and they were truly excellent. Good quality meat and cooked just right with the right condiments. Draft beer and wine was good. 1 diner had a lobster/crab risotto and it was excellent. Service was excellent. I recommend this restaurant.
Negatives: Scallops were salty and Profiteroles (dessert) were not fresh
Positives: Salmon and steaks were really good. Service was good. Buss-boys were very attentive, consistently replenishing our water and removing used plates without being annoying/pushy.
I was there for the afternoon with a dear friend. She had never been to La Provence. So it was good to see the venue and also have lunch. We had a nice time. I want to say that I have been going to La Provence off and on for several years. I booked an anniversary dinner for my parents there seven years ago. It was lovely. I did want to say that some of the furnishings look like they may need or are close to needing reupholstery or refinishing. I just notice the condition of the furnishing in a dining area and they look a little worn.
Had an excellent meal here. Quality and presentation are fantastic. The staff are wonderful. Really appreciated the live music playing. Prices are not cheap so don’t complain about it. Try the rack of lamb or short ribs. They are both delicious. For dessert try the bread pudding with a cappuccino. Really good. It’s upscale French cuisine perfect for a date.
We enjoyed our visit. We have been here many times but this was the first time we have sat it the large booth area, much quiter on that side. It was nice. Food was excellent, i had the salmon/ crab special. It was very good. Not sure i like the bread that was served with the escargot though. I almost preffer the sliced loaf bred with that. Overall we were very pleased though. We have never had a bad meal there. Thanks for the wonderful evening.
Our server was very good. Escargots were excellent as was my scallops. Two in our party had the short ribs, which they said were excellent. The one disappointment was my husband’s rack of lamb. They were fatty and had gristle. Soup of the day, potato leek was very good.
I do not know the experiences of the chef, it is apparent that the Chef is not well trained in French cuisine, not even an idiosyncratic French cuisine. If you are looking for French cuisine you will be disappointed. Even as an American cuisine it falls short.
The server claims all the food was fresh. It was fresh frozen. The Chef apparently does not inspect the meat as the rack of lamb was more like mutton full of fat, It was served late and burnt. My guest had salmon, which was overcooked. We had to ask the Maître D’ to intervene because our meal was late.
My suggestion to the owners of the restaurant is to review the suppler of their food to ensure that only first quality food is purchased. I also would suggest that the Chef review how the food is prepared and its presentation
The food and wine menus offer great quality at reasonable prices. On Wednesday wines are all half price, which makes for great value on the entire meal. We greatly enjoyed our selections: French onion soup, kale Caesar salad, rack of lamb, steak and salmon. Each dish was creatively conceived, prepared and presented.
The week before Christmas made for a full house, a rowdy bar crowd which opens onto the main dining room, and a large party in the back room. The wooden beamed ceiling, while quite attractive, created a massive echo chamber. The net effect was a very noisy experience.
The food was good enough to give La Provence another try. Maybe it will be a bit less frantic after the holidays.
We were taken care of from the time we arrived. Our reservation was timely. The waiter kenew the menu and was helpful in choosing the right meal and the right wine per our questions. The meal was delicious (the short ribs and the salmon). We were not rushed, and will return at a future date.
Very enjoyable, very nice place. The food was good. The Beef Wellington although cooked perfectly was a little plain, under seasoned or no seasoning at all, kind boring. Same with the mashed potatoes and the broccoli was undercooked. The Pork Osso Buco was great and so were the sides. It was noisier than I expected. The service was not bad but not quite to the level I’ve experienced for this type of restaurant. The French Onion soup was probably the best part of the meal.
Leprechauns is a fantastic place for lunch or dinner it has a great wine list the servers are attentive and friendly but what makes La Provence second to none is the food it's superb especially if your hamburger aficionado the hamburger is one of the best in the area
I was disappointed. Ordered a Croque monsieur and was served an okay sandwich which did not look or taste like a croque monsieur. It was ok but not what it was supposed to be. A French restaurant should know how to make this sandwich . Also very noisy music was too loud and then loud talk. Very disappointed
The appetizers were excellent but the prix fixe dinners left a lot to be desired.
The french onion soup was ok, not great.
The chicken and short ribs were both off in texture. I've never paid so much for a short rib that I had to saw through with my knife and chew thoroughly, and it was still fatty too. The chicken was dry and stringy.
The profiteroles were not light and airy like they should be. They were super dense, like a hard biscuit. It took effort to saw through them with my knife. Ridiculous.
But by all means, go for wine and appetizers.
