Provence is an absolutely wonderful restaurant! The food is excellent and the jazz nights are wonderful. Every dish is amazing, the service is great and they have the best French toast in all of B.C.!
The atmosphere of the shops and servers was very good, but we couldn't communicate, perhaps because of our lack of English. We ordered bottled wine and glass of wine and told server how many empty glasses we needed. But Glass wine was served for each one. We had it changed as desired. The appetizer was perfect, but it was a pity that the main meat was dry. And lemon tart was too sour for me.
Great food, great service.
Will definitely come back.
We are so happy to hear that you will be back! Kind regards, Lisa
Keep killing it
Thank you! We strive to be our best daily and love hearing when we do well. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
The service was excellent, and the DOV menu was wonderful. The wine pairing in particular was exquisite.
I especially enjoyed the bouillabaisse and dessert du jour.

Yesterday I went to Provenance restaurant. Dine out Vancouver started. The ambiance is very nice, lights were pretty and conversations were not too loud. The food was delicious and they had the full sized menu items. We shared Greens with goat cheese salad, yummy squash soup. Mushroom ravioli seafood Boulionaise, upside down peach cake a la mode (all dessert options were available) $45 each AND mini, yet generous, wine pairings + $15. All this with soft fresh bread and olive paste. I want to go there agin as their menu had four more entries that looked delicious!
Hello, Thank you for taking the time to share your wonderful comments with us. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your dinner with us. DineOut Vancouver is an exciting time and we love seeing new faces dining with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
We walked through to Yaletown from downtown Vancouver to this quaint restaurant. Beautiful ambiance. Live music - (fabulous) and my gorgeous hubby for company. The wine list was ok - reasonably priced for BC ( shocking of you are from SA) I ordered the duck which did not disappoint- but why oh why put a soggy endive and Brussels sprouts with this ? And the potatoes? I was expecting much gore from the veggies. My hubby ordered the Sablefish and loved his meal. We finished with the Tart Tartine which was sublime!
Thank you Barbara for taking the time to share your comments with us. The chef updates the menus seasonally exploring the ingredients that are seasonally available. I'm so sorry that you did not enjoy the vegetables that we are currently serving with the duck, I will let chef know. We are so glad that you enjoyed the music, service and your overall time with us. I wish you safe and happy travels and hope to have you with us again. Kind regards, Lisa
Provence Marinaside is always reliable. Great food, drinks list, service and competitive pricing all in a great spot.

Hello, We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Always a nice place to go.
We celebrated New Years Eve at Provence and what a fantastic time it was! The food was on point (as it always is) and service was impeccable. They had a great band playing fun covers and even managed to deliver a couple glasses of bubbly in time for the countdown even though we ordered them at 11:58. I live in the area so enjoy visiting here and the attached Wine Bar with some regularity. It's always a good time with fantastic food and an amazing wine selection. Prices are also very reasonable.
Thank you Adrienne! Reading this has started my new year off well, so glad to hear such positive feedback. We wish you the best this year and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Great New Years Eve dinner—music, good food and great atmosphere. We will do this again
Happy New Year! thank you for choosing to celebrate with us. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed everything and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Merci! We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
New Years Eve
Happy New Year! We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
We have been to Provence a few times now and it has always been terrific. The food and ambiance is top notch.
Thank you Connie, we are so glad that you enjoy dining with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
It was raining in New Year Eve. We came here for dinner to celebrate. It's our first time being here. Just like other reviews mention, it's really great restaurant with excellent service. Definitely, we would recommend it to friends, and come again.
Took my parents there for Christmas Eve lunch .. they loved it and are still talking about how wonderful it was!
Thank you Noreen! We love sharing in the celebrations of our guests and are so glad to hear that you had a wonderful lunch on Christmas Eve. We wish you a very happy new year and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Bailey was our server and she was extremely polite, friendly and helpful. The whole Mediterranean fish was cooked to perfection and it’s not easy to find sea bream in Canada.
We ordered some vegetable sides and they were also cooked well. I also recommended the fish soup, I have never tasted better.
Thank you for your wonderful comments, I will be sure to share them with the chef and Bailey. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
This was the second time dining here. The first time was outstanding, this time was very good however the server did miss one of our appetizers and my steak which was ordered as medium came well done.
Also feel that the lobster add on was a little on the small side. Wine was fantastic and overall it was a great dinner.
Hello Mike, We thank you for your recent visit and for sharing your comments with us. Please accept our apologies for the error from your server and the kitchen if one was not already extended to you while you were here. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your overall experience and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
We had several hours to spare between flights and decided to head into town for supper and a look around. Vancouver has a good number of French restaurants. This turned out to be a suitable dining experience in Yaletown, classy but not formal. Our servers were professional. We appreciated the amuse bouche. The seafood was highly recommended. Our selections were correct for our moderate appetites this night. We had crab and shrimp cakes for an appetizer. My father enjoyed the fish soup as his main course. I had the sea bream and scallop duo. All of the seafood was good, not knock-your-socks off good but enjoyable. The best part of the meal, though, was dessert, our picks being the creme brulee and the dessert of the day, a berry and white chocolate bread pudding with a bit of caramel and a scoop of ice cream. Not too sweet, so just right.

Our waiter, Pedro was phenomenal. He was very gracious, thoughtful, considerate and did a stellar job. All our meals were excellent. The number of wines to choose from is enormous. The sommelier here is excellent and our table had both an excellent bottle of both French Red and French White. All this and at reasonable prices.
Hello Chris, Thank you for taking the time to share your very kind comments with us. We are so glad to hear that you had such a good time and that Pedro added to your evening. We hope to have you with us again soon for another great bottle of wine. Cheers, Lisa

Can’t say enough. This is one of our favourite restaurants.
Hello, We cannot thank you enough for sharing your very kind comments. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa Baldwin
Everything we tried was delicious!
Oysters on half shell with herring caviar and the steamed mussels, excellent. The wines served on tap with reusable bottles was an interesting feature. We enjoyed a BC red. I will definitely visit this restaurant again.
Hello Lisa, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. We love hearing from our guests, especially when the feedback is as lovely as yours. We look forward to having you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa Baldwin
From the grilled artichoke and risotto balls to the AAA beef and prawns and then through to the berry and chocolate clafoutis we were in a gastronomic bliss-state. Had just come from Luzia, but forgot to show our ticket for 10% off.
Thank you for your very kind words. We thank you for joining us and are so glad that you enjoyed everything. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your dinner and Cirque tickets and we can email you something to make up for the 10%. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa Baldwin
Great food and service
Ría was an excellent server. Helped make our experience special!
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit. We will be sure to mention your sweet words about Ria, we think she is pretty great too. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Music great on Wednesday night. My bouillabaisse could have had more seafood in it. That was disappointing! Filet mignon was perfect with truffle mushrooms. Birthday dessert has changed & was very skimpy. Still a pleasant 75th birthday dinner.
Hello Brigitte, Thank you for choosing to celebrate this special birthday with us! We love sharing in the celebrations of our guests. Sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with the quantity of seafood in our Bouillabaisse, it has been a perennial favourite since we opened. I will mention your comments to the chef. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Love the live music.
We love the live music too! hope to have you with us on another Wednesday night soon. Cheers, Lisa
The birthday dessert was a great treat for my birthday
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed celebrating your birthday with us and wish you a wonderful year. We hope to have you with us again soon. Cheers, Lisa

Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely comments with us. We love sharing in the celebrations of our guests and thank you for choosing to dine with us. We wish you all the joy and goodness of the Christmas season and hope to have you with us on another occasion soon. Kind regards, Lisa
The staff were few and the service was slow. The trout plate selected was overcook and crunchy and when asked to recook a new plate was told that it was supposed to be that way. 😳 The wine was a tad warm and not as cool as it should be. The portion was too light and small. Bread was needed to fill the stomach. Wrong food was brought to our table and when it was served the food was warm but not hot.
Hello Edward, So sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your meals this past Monday, we wish that a manager had been informed that you weren't pleased with the food and that their was a problem with the service. We had a full staff that day and work as a team to ensure that everyone is well taken care of, sorry this wasn't the case for you. Please let us know if you have anything further that you would like to discuss at email@example.com. Kind regards, Lisa Baldwin
We had a nice meal on Friday night. We had to wait almost an hour for our reserved table, but they sat us outside with some discounted wine which helped pass the time, and fortunately we didn't have to be anywhere. It was surprising to us because our reservation was at 7:00. My chicken was delicious.
Hello, Thank you for your recent visit to Provence and for your patience while waiting for the table. We do our best to keep our reservations flowing smoothly, but once in a while the tables do not turn as planned. We are so glad that you enjoyed your meals and hope to have you with us on another occasion soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Excellent setting, service, and food! We live nearby and will continue to come with family and friends.
Thank you Patricia! We feel so fortunate to have so many wonderful neighbours who visit us regularly. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
It was our first visit to Provence and we have not enjoyed a similar experience since Chez Joel in 1970s Gastown! The food, service, ambiance- all 1st class. We plan to make it our regular dining out choice.
Wow! Thank you Marlene for these amazing comments. We love what we do and so appreciate hearing from our wonderful guests. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
