COZY. WARM. DELICIOUS.
Nestled beside False Creek in the heart
of Yaletown, Provence Marinaside offers
Vancouver’s most delicious, social, and
refined dining experience.Award winning
wine list with over 100 wines by the glass,
and extensive reserve wine list. A visit to
the South of France without the jet lag.
Excellent and classy place to go. A lively bar scene but not too loud. Attentive knowledgeable waiter. Very much fun.
Food of choice VERY BLAH.
Wine, despite French label - Poor
Noise level HIGH
Two of party will not be back.
One of the best waiters for dinner.
Highly recommend you try the dinner menu with some live music
Provence is one of our favorite restaurants. They do everything right especially on Wednesdays when they even have live jazz. The wine selection is very accommodating by the glass! You'll probably see us there next Wednesday.
Normally the service at Provence is great. This time, though, the server seemed overwhelmed with her work. She plunked down menus and came back quite a while later asking, "Did you decide?" No opportunity to order a drink first as usual or even hear about the specials. I sort of felt like I was at a cheap diner. The food was fine, the wine was okay, the noise in the room was loud despite the place not being packed.
I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't have a good experience on your recent visit. First of all I'm sorry that you were not properly greeted at the door and seated by our host staff. We realise the importance of first impressions. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share more information, we would love to investigate further with your server so that we can prevent this from happening again. Please accept our apologies. We hope to have you with us again. Lisa Baldwin

Amazing food, beautiful view, and phenomenal service.
Thank you Heather! We hope to have you with us again soon. Cheers, Lisa
There were four in our party. Three were pleased with their meals. One ordered Halibut and it was not eaten as it was overcooked and dry. One the main course was delivered nobody checked on how we were doing.

We had an amazing meal for our anniversary! The crab and Lobster bamboo rice was exquisite, frog legs out of this world and Gabriel was very attentive and service was awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
Thank you for choosing to celebrate your anniversary with us. We wish you many more great years together with many more great meals! We hope to have you with us on another occasion soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Consistently good. We have had many meals from lunch to brunch and dinner. All recommendable.

Tolles Essen, gute Bedienung und schöne Einrichtung und Lage.
Amazing service food and wine recommendations.
The ambiance was beautiful and we loved the French music in the background. The waiter was very attentive making helpful suggestion but he was never intrusive! The food was fantastic and as great as we had remembered it to be as we are repeat customers! A super experience!
Food was delicious. Olive tapenade to start was nice. Continued with bread and perfectly cultured/salty butter. Enjoyed the lamb, bouillabaisse, and linguini. For dessert the caramel, clafoutis, and mousse. All delicious. Emily, our server, was attentive and knowledgeable. Lovely experience.
We celebrated a friend’s birthday. They were so accommodating for our reservation - we had a time zone issue with Open table and Gmail. We loved the wines on tap and shared the goat cheese and mussels to start. the shrimp Provençal was decadent as was the halibut. The included vegetables were cooked perfectly. We will definitely return if in Vancouver.
The food & service was outstanding. I wish I could remember the name of our server. She was fantastic. Very attentive, personable, and knowledgeable.
Amazing experience. Staff went out of their way to accommodate the needs of our guest who is celiac.
All our food was superb.
Without doubt the best prawns I've ever tasted. Service impeccable, great seafood.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, we will definitely pass your comments on to the chef and our hard working kitchen team. This is why we love what we do... we hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Enjoyed the live music, a nice difference. Would return in the future.
Was just left disappointed, my starter set the tone and for a seafood steamer I would have expected more than 3 mussels, and 3 small scallops. Food was well cooked but this price of dishes was too much
Hello, I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your recent visit. I am not sure if you modified your steamer or not, but what you are describing varies from our menu offerings. We do offer a shellfish steamer but it includes prawns, scallops, mussels and clams in a white wine sauce. Please email us at email@example.com if you would like to discuss this further. We hope to have you with us again. Kind regards, Lisa
Another great experience at Provence. Our server was friendly and attentive. I had the seafood platter which was delicious. My 2 kids shared the seafood linguine and I couldn’t believe the amount of seafood in the dish. The desserts were great too. Highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to share your fabulous comments with us! We so appreciate hearing such positive comments and knowing that families are sharing food together. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
We have eaten here several times over a year ago and it was amazing. The food this time was not good at all. Saying that, the service, ambiance and wine list are all outstanding, so hopefully we just went on a bad day for the kitchen. Most disappointing was the seafood was not fresh.
Hello Marian, Thank you for dining with us this past year. We are happy to hear that you usually enjoy your time with us and are sorry to hear that your latest experience was not on par with your other visits. I will share your comments with the chef, but I can assure you that we offer the freshest produce possible. Thank you for appreciating the hard work that goes into our wine program and the great staff that we have. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards,
Nice atmosphere. Nice touch to give us amuse bouche, but it was tasteless! The best bread we’ve had for years. However, the food was generally under seasoned and lacked that certain ‘je ne sais quais’ Beautifully presented, and good service - just a shame that the taste was lacking. We both had 3 courses so we did give the menu a good chance to impress. Nothing was so bad that it was inedible, and we didn’t complain. Maybe it was just not to our taste, although we usually love French food. We went the following night to Cioppinos which was excellent.
Hello Deena, We thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us and are so sorry to hear that you felt the food was lacking. We would love to hear what you had so that we can share this with the chef as this is a comment that we do not usually receive. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you care to share further so that we can ensure that this does not happen to any of our other guests. We would love to have you with us on another occasion. Kind regards, Lisa
Great food and great service!
Great location, great food, great service. Often a little on the loud side for an intimate catch up but overall highly recommended.
Hello Lisa, We thank you for sharing your comments with us. It is true that we do have some lively times, but we thank you for your recommendation. We hope to have you with us again soon for some great food and service. Cheers
Terrific place for a special occasion meal. We chose the fixed price three course meal and could not have been more satisfied. Every morsel was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. The dress code (business casual) helps provide a nice ambience, and the jazz band (plays on wednesdays) was superb.
Thank you so much for these very kind words! We love reading comments like this and hope to have you with us again soon. Wednesdays will continue to have jazz through October and November to warm the shorter days. Kind regards, Lisa
One of my favorite places in Vancouver. Always good food and friendly service.
Thank you Marika! We hope to have you with us soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Simply said, perfect in every aspect! Food fantastic, waiter fantastic, ambience fantastic. The salsa ensemble really sealed the deal!
Thank you Jules! So glad to hear that you enjoyed every aspect of your dinner and the wonderful music featuring Rumba Calzada that we had that evening. We continue supporting live music every Wednesday with jazz through the months of October and November. We hope to have you with us soon. kind regards, Lisa
Great service; food was perfect. Music was great. Recommend highly.
Once again we had the best service, food, and ambience!!! They made my birthday extra special. The waiter was so terrific! And the food to die for! Wish I lived around the corner so I could eat there in every week.
Thank you for choosing to celebrate your birthday with us! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed yourself and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Gabriel was fabulous and made our evening a real delight. He even provided me with two blister bandages for my heels which were an absolute lifesaver during the walk home.
Sorry that we missed seeing JF.
We think that Gabriel is fabulous too and glad to hear that he made your evening special. We hope to have you with us on another evening soon. JF can often be found in the kitchen or strolling through the dining room. Kind regards, Lisa
Consistently excellent food and service! Great location!
Thank you Patricia, we hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Great evening, beautiful view of the water, delicious wine - a fun date night.
