We love this local neighborhood restaurant. My kids especially like it, and they have a very nice menu for them. Specials are sent weekly via email for what the chef is specially preparing for the weekend making the menu ever-changing.

This is an excellent restaurant with moderate prices and superb wine list. Wine Wednesday is a particularly good deal for consumers wishing to try excellent wines at 1/2 the normal bottle cost.

The food was very good. I had the beef Wellington and my wife had the flat iron steak. It was both of our birthdays and nearly all the staff wished us Happy Birthday. The service was outstanding and the staff was very friendly.

Loved the look of the place, the great service, and food presentation. Came for lunch when they had just opened so there were not a large number of people. With the open floor plan and high ceiling don't know what the noise level would be like if place was full. $15.00 was fair enough for a sandwich with fries in a nice place like this but couldn't afford to come here a lot. Want to come back on our anniversary.

We all had a very good time at this restaurant. The food was very good and the wait staff was excellent, However, I did find the prices to be quite high. But again, for special occasions, this is a good place to come.

This is the second time we have left La Provence disappointed. Thought it was the server/manager last time, but remained poor service (in a snooty we-don't-care-about-you way) and marginal food. Mother's Day brunch to the tune of $45 pp I got a fried egg over hash browns and 6 pieces of diced up meat - the buffet offerings were good, but not worth the price. Won't be going back, although this used to be a great place to hang out and dine.

La Provence is my wife's favorite restaurant in this area and so it was a no brainer for her birthday and Mother's day. The waiter helped her decide what to choose and she was not disappointed. He even made suggestions for the rest of us and everyone was happy being there.

Unfortunately this wasn’t our best visit to La Provence. The service was extremely slow and the food was just ok. Prior visits were so much better, so we will give it another try and hope it was just a bad night.

I am never disappointed when I dine at La Provence. This was the first time I was seated on the patio and it was delightful. I also enjoy the huge fireplace lit in the cooler months. The food is always outstanding with great wines to enjoy. Un réstaurant merveilleux!

Our party was overcharged. This is not the first time this has happened at this restaurant. The last visit, our bill was $75 too high. The "corrected" bill still had an overcharge.

I am wondering if La Provence is hoping to make even more money per customer by systematically overcharging?

I went online to secure a reservation for brunch on Saturday, May 12th. I was not able to call because it said the restaurant was closed, that’s why I did it online. On the website it said there would be a pre-Mother’s day brunch/buffet but I didn’t want that so I reserved a table for 4. The website NEVER said it was buffet only. When we got there on Saturday for our reservation and sat down at our table, the server said we could go over to the buffet, I explained we weren’t there for that and she said it was buffet only. I told her I reserved online and it never said that. Needless to say, we ended up leaving and my mom really wanted to eat there for brunch. Overall, if you only have 1 option for breakfast on a certain day it needs to be explained on the website. I was not happy about the miscommunication and we didn’t even get to eat there because of your mistake.

The Monaco was delicious as was the french onion soup.
The only reason I gave the service a fair is they didn't acknowledge our special
occasion; however, the manager was very gracious when notified. I would
definitely go there again!

Thank you for such a fine dining experience. My sister and I celebrated by mom's 91st birthday with you last week. I must say that we were all impressed, starting with that delicious bowl of French Onion Soup. I think I will be back for just a bowl of soup sometime it was so good. We all enjoyed our entrees and the lovely dessert (one complimentary :). I think this will become a regular place for us. When my sister returns to visit again with her husband from New York, I know she will be taking him. Thanks again. Your restaurant is a 5 star in my book!!

Met up with an old friend Lemon drops perfect and food was wonderful. Noise leave just right we had lots to talk about and had no problem hearing each other. Never once did we feel rushed...we had all the time in the world, so our server said and he was right, 3 hours at dinner was so generous. This made our experience so very special. Hopefully we will be back soon. Thank you.

This restaurant is not french cuisine as advertised. The food was average and on the same level as Denny’s but with a pricey tag. Should change name to La Roseville. Left with a hundred dollar bill for a dry omelette, roast beef dip, and three glasses of wine for two people. Unbelievable. They should be ashamed.

This was our first time at La Provence. My wife and I went to listen to the piano player Roman Spinale. We started out the night in the lounge for the wonderful music, then we went into the restaurant for dinner. Our favorites were the escargot and beef wellington, superb! The caesar salad was not to our liking as we are used to a rich caesar dressing and this one was very bland. The ambiance and decor was perfect and our waiter David made the night extra special. David was not only attentive, considerate, and observant, but he had great wit and a down to earth demeanor, he even sang a verse from one of our favorite movies "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" We will definately go back again to hear Roman play piano and for David, the best waiter we have ever had! By the way, David loves his wife very much!

I enjoyed lunch on the Terrace with my parents and son. The weather was just perfect! The food was exceptional. My parents told our waiter, Zach D, that the French Onion Soup is the best they'd had in a long, long time. My son really enjoyed his Croque Madame with Fries, and the Jumbo Shrimp Pasta Carbonara was great, as usual. Service was relaxed, but exceptional.

The food was excellent however our server was not that attentive. She forgot the bread although tables around us were served it; did not ask if we enjoyed our salads, entrees or dessert and did not come by to pour the bottle of wine after the initial glass.
