We were given a quiet secluded table by the window and our anniversary was acknowledged right away. The waiter was kind and most attentive and food was delicious. We were the last ones to leave that evening but no one was hovering.

Very good service in a restaurant with an imaginative approach to seafood. Modern ambience, but a lower volume of background music (or no music!) would be welcome.

Food was lack lustre and expensive for what it was. Foccacia and fried were delish but that Bamboo rice with lobster and crab was awful. Thin watery weird sauce with minuscule flakes of crab and lobster.
What a joke. Beef filet was also tiny but cooked as ordered. Caesar and Moscow Mule cocktails also disappointing. Both had an overabundance of ice which left room for a tiny bit of drink only. Too small of a glass as well. Never recommend.

Guessed it is a weekend Saturday evening.... but there is no prestation for the apptz or main course. escargot and frog legs $17, like some small dark p00p with the white frog legs tossing on the plate ; and the mussels and the calamari was over done.
Only highlight were 1) the Martini's drinks and 2) The "braised Leeks" that comes with Sablefish was good..(fish little over done).. Go there for drinks and do not expect Great courses you will be fine.
3) The waiter, he was wonderful.
We should have gone to Bishop's instead. ;-(

Hi I was very sad to read your comments. We do our best every day of the week to ensure a wonderful dining experience for all our guests and we are so sorry that you did not enjoy your dinner. I have never heard escargot described the way you worded it, but despite the look they are tasty. We wish that we had known that the meals were not cooked as you wished so that we could have remedied that for you. Please accept our apologies. We hope that you will return for a tasty martini. Regards, Lisa

We were celebrating a birthday. Unfortunately when our wait person opened our bottle of Champagne the bottle exploded and it was raining Champagne all over us and across the restaurant. What a shock. Not the wait persons’s fault at all. The only other thing that was not great was that the crust for the lemon tart was not cooked and tasted raw. Otherwise the food was very good.

Ordered the fish trio which included Ahi Tuna. The Ahi Tuna was over cooked when it should of been raw in the centre. Advised the waiter who was very good and had it re-cooked. The Ahi Tuna came back seared correctly on the outside raw in the centre but stone cold. At that point I decided not to complain again and just not come back.

Hello Anna, I am so sorry to hear that your tuna was not cooked the way it should be. As a tuna lover I totally understand your issue. We wish that we could have another opportunity to show you the dish as it is intended to be served. We hope to have you with us again.

Another memorable night at Provence Marinaside. I brought a friend in for a special meal and it did not disappoint. We were sat at a less than satisfactory table and when we asked to be moved, they quickly cleared the table moved us to a window seat with a smile. The food was excellent and the service was perfectly timed and most friendly. My prawns on wild rice were superb! The noise level was a pleasant buzz, the lighting was a little low for my old eyes to read the menu but perfect for dining. Great wine list as well. My favourite Joie 'Noble Blend' is not often on restaurant menus. Thanks to all for a perfect evening.

This was an anniversary dinner with friends and the first time we have been at Provence when they had music. The music was very good but
a little too loud to have a conversation with all the people in our party. Four of our party had the Bamboo Rice with Lobster. Excellent! Four of our
party had the lemon tart. Excellent ! Service was excellent. The wait staff was very knowledgeable . One of our favourite restaurants in Yaletown.

This was our second visit in two months and I have to say we were underwhelmed. Our first visit was so spectacular that we were eager to return. We brought friends visiting from Calgary.
Appies were good. Rack of lamb extremely mustardy. Smoked sablefish was nice but hardly any vegetables on the plate I had the Bream. It was overcooked, the side garnish was tasty.
We will be back but we may be less enthusiastic in our recommendations.

Booked for vday dinner for my partner and I. Was very crowded and busy. We were seated and our server wasn’t very pleasant at all. My partner asked a simple request which took longer then expected. It was a set menu and for those that can’t eat everything on the menu were outta luck! Prior to even booking had to give a credit card to book so if you can’t mske your reso they charge you $120 cancellation fee!!! We even changed servers and he was nice. Been here for dine out and it was a better experience but going forward won’t ever return again!!

Hello Heather We're so sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your recent visit with us. The chef loves Valentines day and prepares a wonderful set menu on this special day. We did our best to confirm with all of our bookings that for this dinner substitutions wouldn't be available. We usually accommodate all requests. Valentines day is a busy day for all restaurants.
