Oddly enough, I chose Provence on a weekday morning because I wanted a quiet space to conduct a business meeting… The staff did a wonderful job of accommodating us in the quietest corner of the restaurant. Unfortunately they also sat a very noisy table 1 to 2 tables over from us, which sadly needed the purpose of the quiet corner.
That being said, the service was impeccable… Kind, attentive, our food came out very quickly. Plates were cleared efficiently, water and coffee were refilled regularly. The food was delicious and fresh, and had excellent portion sizes, as well as making accommodations for dietary restrictions. I always recommend Provence to colleagues for an elegant business lunch or a cute date spot if they want somewhere near the water, this is definitely a Yaletown staple and I recommend
Excellent French food, great wine list, attentive service - what more do you want.
Hello Paul, we certainly love reading your kind words and thank you for taking the time to share them. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
we went there for dine out Vancouver. food is amazing. my wife order Bouillabaisee and it is perfect.
We all tried the dine out Vancouver experience with wine pairings which we thoroughly enjoyed. The only downside was a raucous group at the bar who did not comply with Covid protocols. Sometimes we couldn’t hear our own conversations.
Hello Annie, We are so happy to hear that you came out for Dine out and enjoyed your meals. We do everything we can to follow the protocols and are sorry that this group lessened your experience for you. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Our server took 11 minutes to greet us with water. She didn’t tell us her name, nor did she offer any suggestions upon taking our order. She was pleasant, however, seemed abrupt in her communication. Overall, at a place such as Provence, we expected better service. The food was fantastic as it always is, however, you may need to consider retraining your staff in service etiquette. As a former server of 9 years, there are things I look for with fine dining with regard to service. This was not it. Introduction, recommendations, calm and polite speech, small talk etc. She just seemed uninterested and her tip reflected as such.
Food was very good. Service was good, if a bit confused at times.
It was fantastic. I took my wife there for her birthday and it was great. The service was great, the atmosphere was hopping. Couldn’t of asked for a better evening dining out.
Hello and thank you! We love reading such positive feedback and are so happy that you enjoyed your recent visit celebrating your wife. We hope to have you with us again soon. Cheers, Lisa

Our server, Xavier was excellent! Restaurant had very few diners (Monday at lunch time) so it was quiet and we received lots of attention.
Thank you Liz! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your lunch and the service that you received. We will share your comments with Xavier, who we think is pretty great too. We hope to have you with us again. Kind regards, Lisa
Excellent service, and the lamb was outstanding. Thank you
Thank you! We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and look forward to having you with us again. Kind regards, Lisa
NYE dinner was delicious. Staff were fully present and knowledgeable. Desert was a little underwhelming. Will definitely come back though. Great date spot.
Thank you so much for celebrating New Years eve with us! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your dinner and the service you received. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Wonderful experience! Our last light in Vancouver before heading home to Dallas. Looking for a harbor side restaurant serving seafood and was happy to one with a French twist. The interior was beautifully decorated and we were sat at a large cozy booth in front. The menu options were amazing. We started with the prawn cocktail, garlic meatballs and shrimp & crab cakes which were all delicious. My son thought the lamb chops were the best he’s ever had, while by husband thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp linguini. I went off menu with the pan seared foie Gras served in a bed of saucy lentils and added the lobster tail Provençal. So glad I did! We topped the night with the poached pear and some chocolate mousse, both divine. Loved everything!
Thank you for sharing your fabulous comments with us! We are so glad that you found us and enjoyed your time with us. We hope to have you with us again should you return to Vancouver. Wishing you a wonderful year! Kind regards, Lisa
It was little loud but overall it was great.
Always fabulous, a favorite local for Seafood. Great service and ambience. A long time favorite.
Thanks so much! We feel so privileged to have so many wonderful guests and appreciate you taking the time to share your comments. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Great place, great food, excellent service. Ordered Rack of Lamb and Bouillabaisse, with pairing red and white wine. Both dishes are great in taste, display, and portion. Lamb is done just right. Server knows their dishes well and provide excellent suggestion on the wine choice. Daily special dessert with moose cake. Definitely will recommend going back.
Thank you Justin! We love hearing from our guests and appreciate you taking the time to share your wonderful feedback. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
First time here, came with the family on a cold, snowy Boxing Day night. Service and food was impeccable. Everyone was thoroughly impressed. Will certainly be back.
Thank you so much! We love reading comments like yours. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
A wonderful dining room with excellent food and service. The best brunch in the city. A lovely place for a special night out. The food is great and beautifully presented. Very professional and friendly service. Hard to beat.
Thank you for your wonderful comments! You have brought a smile to my face and we all need to smile more. We hope to have you with us again soon. kind regards, Lisa
Ambiance, food and vibe was amazing last night. Service was also great! Thank you to the servers for helping me surprise my boyfriend for his birthday. It was truly one to remember ♥️
I got the bamboo rice with lobster and it was really good. My husband tried the pasta which was good
Thank you! We hope that you join us again soon. Cheers, Lisa
Wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season with our friends. This was their first time here and told us they definitely will be back. And so will we!
Our server was definitely off her game. The service was awful, the food was good.
The place was crowded with pre-Christmas lunchers and it was extremely noisy. Service was attentive and pleasant. My dish was only lukewarm, but tasty enough. Not one of my better experiences at Provence Marinaside but I would certainly go back. Just too nice a setting to forego.
Seafood linguine was burnt and tasted burnt didn’t finish my plate
Great food and wine
This, our first time at Province Marinaside was very enjoyable. Right from the starting seasonal cocktails throughout the meal our expectations were consistently exceeded. My partner began with Mamie Suzanne's fish soup while I tucked into the crab and shrimp cakes, both perfect starters leading to our mains. My partner's prawn and scallop spaghettini was a pleaser as was my seafood platter. Vegetables were crisp alongside the perfectly prepared combination of half lobster tail, scallops, prawns, mussels, clams, salmon, white fish and rice. Trois sorbet and fruit and the delicate fondant au chocolate completed our meals. The wine list is varied, with a pleasingly broad selection of wine by the glass as well as by the bottle. Staff were pleasant, helpful and engaging. A fine evening by any standard.
Awesome as always. Great service and food!!
Thank you! We hope to have you with us again soon. Cheers, Lisa
Excellent French cuisine. Always a treat to have a bouillabaise on a cold night!
Thank you Martin, I so agree that bouillabaise helps take the chill away on these winter nights. We are so glad you enjoyed yours here and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
The restaurant was busy, but our table was ready immediately. The service was fantastic and the food excellent. The Mussels were the best I've had in Vancouver.
Brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. The food was delicious, the atmosphere beautiful and the severs were excellent. Our babysitter had cancel so we had to bring the baby with us and the servers were extra careful to set dishes and food items out of her reach. They had live music starting while we were there and at first we were concerned it would be too loud but it was actually perfect and added a nice calm feel to our meal. We had an amazing time and would return again for another special occasion.
It was a good experience !
I provided dinner and wine for three friends as a Christmas Gift. I decided to host them there because the restaurant had wonderful live music.
Thank you for choosing to spend your time with your friends here, what a thoughtful gift! We love the live music we have every Wednesday evening and hope to have you with us again soon. Merry Christmas, Lisa
The entire experience was delightful!
The food, the service and the ambiance was worthy of 5 stars!
Mad jazz live put on a fabulous show!
Felt like I was in a restaurant in Gay Paris! Would love to go again!
Thank you so much! what a delight reading your comments! We love having music to brighten the mood on these dark nights and throughout the year. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
As usual, amazing service and food, and the Jazz band was a great touch
