Service was unbelievably great. The food was excellent. Wine pairings from Sea Star Vineyard were really well thought out. Great experience. You can tell the whole team cares about you and your time with them.
Great food, service, and ambiance . Clear understanding of COVID mitigation by staff; felt entirely safe and had an outstanding time and meal. Highly recommend
I loved the service. But the food was mediocre.
Food was great, live music was a little loud, slightly over priced, yet within reason
The food was absolutely delicious.
Service was excellent.
Bartender made a great Crantini!
We will be back!
Exfellent service and lovely environment as usual
Sitting outside at Provence is a great people-watching experience. Happy Hour pricing on food and wines is very good and our servers have consistently been very friendly and a lot of fun. The calamari was light and flavorful and the meat balls were delicious!
On previous visits the experience was more elegant with table setting and table cloths. Now it feels like a cafeteria with bare tables and a concrete floor. Food and service still great. I guess they had to strip things down for Covid. But the feeling of being in an elegant French restaurant is sadly gone (hopefully temporarily).
Hello Gilles, Thank you for your recent visit and for understanding why we have bare tables. We miss setting our dining room as we did in the past too, but we are doing all we can to offer great food and service. We hope that we can all get through Covid soon and return to the good old days once again. We wish you well and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Amazing location, great food and attentive service.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your lovely comments with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Went there for brunch with my friend. Amazing food, mimosa's and overally ambience.
Thank you Raj! Brunch is one of our favourite times too! We hope to have you with us again soon. Cheers, Lisa
Great quality, friendly service, perfect atmosphere thank you!
Thank you so much! We love hearing from our guests and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Love this place. It has been around a long time and never disappoints. Our meal was great but I think the staff were having an off night... normally the service is at least four stars.
Highly recommend this establishment!
Hello and thank you for your continuing support over the years. We are so fortunate to still be around and loving what we do. Please accept out apologies for the misstep in service that you had. We will remind everyone that we need to be our best for every guest on every day. We hope you return soon for another true Provence experience. Kind regards, Lisa
The whole experience was excellent, and our waiter was attentive and helpful. The food was delicious, and we felt very comfortably warm on the patio
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your wonderful comments with us. We hope to have you with us again on another occasion soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Been dining here for more than 10 years. Consistently high quality. Music could be notched down a bit for more comfortable conversation.
Hello and thank you for your support through the years. We are so very fortunate to have so many regular guests and thank you for sharing your comments with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
We have tried a few new restaurants in Vancouver (similar price point) in past year but Provence is still our favourite. Food, service, and atmosphere are consistently top notch. We haven’t been out as much due to COVID so expectations are high and Provence never disappoints. COVID protocols are better than any of the other restaurants we have been to so makes for a very comfortable dining experience. Caesar salad is the best we’ve had anywhere and prawns Provençal is one of my favourites and halibut is always delicious (when in season) but have never been disappointed with any dish we’ve ordered. Will be back soon!
Hello and thank you so much! Reading your comments has put a big smile on my face and I will share this with all of my colleagues. We look forward to one day sharing our unmasked smiles with our wonderful guests, but until then we will continue to do all we can to make everyone feel safe and comfortable while dining with us. See you again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
I like the view & music! But parking seems difficult to find, will go back try their breakfast
Hello, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. We do not have a parking lot, but there is one under the Urban Fare around the corner if you decide to return. We hope to have you with us again soon, breakfast is always great at Provence. Kind regards, Lisa
Had a great brunch on the patio during the work week. We were there extra early so had the place to ourselves. Really nice place to have a leisurely mid-week breakfast, in the sun, while overlooking the seawall/water.
Hello, We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit. We love leisurely breakfast in the sun too and hope to have you with us again soon, the days just keep getting better. Kind regards, Lisa
It’s was lovely - the server and kitchen were extremely accommodating with my mom who is a celiac
Hello, We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. We have a wonderful team in the kitchen who will always to their best to accommodate allergies or special requests. We think our service staff bus great too! We thank you for sharing your comments with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Anniversary very nice
Hello Annette, Thank you for joining us for your anniversary. We feel fortunate to share in the special moments of our guests lives. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves and hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Service & food were very good. Background music & noise were a bit loud. Overall 4.5/5.
Hello Danie, We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. We will remind the staff to not turn the music up too loud. Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
The food was delicious! But it wasn't as good as we remember it. We go to Provence at least once a year and something was definitely different this night.
Hello Earl, We are so sorry that the food did not match your memory of previous visits and wish that we could have amended things for you while you were here. We hate thinking that anyone leaves feeling less than thrilled with their meals. The chef and many of the team who create our great food haven't changed in years. Please accept our apologies. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Tried the dine out for lunch and service was a little slow to start with no server to greet us or provide water until we were seated for a bit. The seafood steamer to start was good, though the broth could have been hotter. The baguette that was offered to us was good too, but we later found out it was an additional charge that we were not informed of. The ravioli and prawns were quite nice, and the rabbit pasta was good. The lemon dessert was ok, though nothing special and quite tiny. The restaurant always looks so inviting at night so maybe we'd have a different dining experience for dinner.
Hello, Thank you for your recent visit and for taking the time to share your comments with us. Please accept our apologies for the issues that you had with the service. We work as a team and will remind everyone to take care of every guest we have the pleasure of having with us. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and hope to have you with us on another occasion experiencing the true Provence Marinaside. Kind regards, Lisa
steamer appetizer was good but broth was a bit too salty.
mushroom ravioli was excellent
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your recent dinner, we will share them with the chef. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
My favourite local restaurant.
Thank you so much! We feel so blessed to have so many loyal guests and we hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
We are having a staycation this spring and decided to join in Dine Out Vancouver and eat at Provence Marinaside. The menu had great choices, the bouillabaisse devine with great chunks of fish and shellfish. We were entertained with a local saxophone musician which created a wonderful atmosphere. Very nice evening, even with COVID restrictions in place!
Thank you! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your recent dinner during your staycation. We hope to have you with us again on another occasion soon. We have live music every Wednesday evening. Cheers, Lisa
It was a wonderful dinner for the two of us; and we definitely will come back for many more meals. The services were great, attentive and friendly.

Food and ambience was good but service was a bit poor in my experience. Waitress looked tired and was not very attentive to our requests, however the person who got our bill was super kind. Place was busy but I'd go back

Food was excellent and the server was kind - just that the server was slightly forgetful and misnamed one of the wines on the wine pairing menu.
Hello and thank you for your joining us for your recent dinner. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and service that you received. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
Mushroom Ravioli was so good! Ambience was lovely and great service to add.
Thank you! We appreciate you choosing to dine with us and for taking the time to share your feedback. We hope to have you with us again soon. Kind regards, Lisa
The overall experience was fine, however, the communication amongst staff was insufficient. I felt ignored at times, the hostess erroneously asked us on three occasions whether 2 more people were joining us. I ordered a 2014 Nebbiolo, I was not offered a decanter, etc... However, the overall service was good.

Fantastic restaurant. I love everything food, service, live jazz music. Definitely visit again.
Thank you Jen! Reading comments like yours makes us all feel good. We hope to have you with us again soon, we do have live jazz every Wednesday. Kind regards, Lisa
An awesome experience as the food was amazing, the service was too notch as we had an amazing waiter and the Jazz was fabulous. A great Romantic Birthday Celebration.
