The entire staff, and especially our waiter Kane made my Mother-in-law's 90th birthday lunch so special! We enjoyed the Pistachio and Olive Tapenade with a Heitz Chard. The French Onion Soup and French Dips were delicious. Kane served us a complimentary Creme Brulee with a candle for Mom's birthday. The tab was so reasonable and the setting was relaxing. Highly recommend!

Had lunch at La Provence and enjoyed the experience. Food was great along with the service. The music seemed to be too loud but look forward to our next visit.

I ordered the Beef Wellington, which apparently takes a little longer to prepare. It ordered it done medium, but it was cooked past that. Because it tasted so good, and was so tender, I didn't say a word. My companion had the Scallops with the risotto. He says the scallops were good, but tje risotto was dry. The ambience was great and the live music wasn't too loud.

I am typically a big fan of La Provence, however, I went for the St Patricks Day Holiday meal. As an Irish girl, I should have known better than to trust a French restaurant with an Irish meal. The food was just ok. The dish as a whole was pretty dry. I told the waitress to tell the chef that some of the juices and/or some type of sauce should be served with it as it was rather dry. Hopefully they took the advice. I'll be back again for sure as I typically love this place. Regardless, it is still my favorite place to go.

We went on a Thursday evening. The food was OK however for a French quisine, the sauces we're lacking distinctive flavor. The service was nonchalant. Very good salad and dessert, the entree was just OK. If this is the normal experience then I will not be back.

Food was delicious, the staff were helpful. For the starter we got the bone marrow which was delicious. We had the beef wellington and the lamb shank. Both were cooked very well and seasoned nicely. Will definitely come back again.

Met an old friend that I hadn’t seen in two years for lunch. After mentioning that we hadn’t seen One another and two years the hostess asked if we wanted to be seated in what looked like a closed area so glad we could hear one another better. That was a very kind gesture. We took it and had a wonderful lunch. I have a salad with the most wonderful Riesling while my friend had the fried chicken and a Chardonnay. Great times and a great lunch!

We always have a great time at La Provence and this lunch was no exception. The staff are wonderful and make it a lovely dining experience. The food is delicious. If I could wish for anything more, it would be a refresh of the dessert menu—we’re ready to try new things. Love La Provence…we’ll be back again soon.

It was my wife’s 58 birthday, made reservations week ahead and the host tried to stick us at this puny table in a corner no view or window, so I told them not acceptable and we got a great booth and everything else was great! Beef Wellington is to die for....

Lovely french inspired restaurant where the food is delicious and service attentive and knowledgeable. Great for special occasions with friends or a special someone. Large cocktail menu and nice variety of entrees. We loved the Beef Wellington after the french onion soup. A must try place if you have never been.

My wife and I both ordered fish. The fish in both dishes was undercooked with a near raw core like it was frozen before they cooked it.
We had not been there in a couple of years and will probably try again sometime but probably not soon.

This was a nice dining experience! It was our first time here. The atmosphere was romantic and the restaurant itself was pretty, the food was good but not too warm like we thought it should have been. We did get a free dessert since this was our anniversary. That was a nice surprise! Our waitress was very nice. We will probably come back again in the future.

Lovely setting, nice ambience. We were seated near the fireplace which was great. Lots of variety on the menu plus great specialty cocktails and affordable wines by the glass. The French onion soup was amazing! Our British friend was thrilled with her Beef Wellington, and the chicken cordon bleu and sea bass special got rave reviews. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive and we never felt rushed. Can’t wait to back when it’s warmer and try the patio seating!

Expensive. Seated next to a wall that was dirty with food stains. One of the promised entrees was not available. Mine was over cooked. Portions were small and all in all a very poor choice on my part for a special dinner with my wife. I left feeling a little ashamed.

I booked a table online for Valentine’s Day. On there fine print it said cancelation is 89 dollars. When we arrived I saw we could only pick from a specific menu instead of the main one I was looking forward to. It said 89 dollars for everything. When I booked online it never said it was a select menu with a minumin required with mandatory gratuity. I couldn’t get up and leave as I be charge 89 dollars either way. I believe this was not good business practice to not advertise that on open table when booking. It is very unethical and shady. I will not come back and I will Tell everyone about the shady business practices here.
