I totally enjoyed the fresh seafood platter and my son had seafood pasta. Both dishes were amazing. The bread they serve to accompany each dish is to die for. The wine selection is wonderful. The server was a delight and the manager checked on us to see if we enjoyed our dinner. Superb!! A 10 out of 10🤩

Went to La Provence for a retirement lunch, staff was very willing to split the bill so the guest of honor didn't pay. Lovely setting, great wait staff, attentive but not overbearing. The food was fantastic you could tell the chef put a lot of thought into every dish and they were delicious. We also had dessert which was amazing and the portions were just right. Over all a great experience and we felt it was a notch or two above any of the restaurants in the area. Thanks to all the staff who made this special occasion a success.

I always enjoy my experience at Provence Marinaside. My dinner companion was not as happy with her meal. She sent it back and still found it not to her liking. Mine was excellent.

We found this jewel on a weekend adventure to Vancouver. Everything about our meal was perfect. My husband isn't a seafood guy but found something delicious on the menu. The seafood was exceptional. My taste buds are still happy 2 days later.

Great diverse seafood menu, food tasted really good, and nice portions. Ambiance is somewhat disappointing - too many tables in too little space, and rather noisy. Also servers have too many tables to manage.

We had a lovely meal. This restaurant is close to my son's work but also close enough that we could walk to the Orpheum. Our server was excellent and we were finished in lots of time for our walk. The food, as usual, was well prepared and very good. I appreciated the 16% discount as well.

This was a wonderful dining experience. Although the seafood looked amazing, I opted for the Osso Bucco which was delicious and tender. The wine menu was excellent and the service top notch.

Thank you. I will dine here the next time I am in town.

We have been to Provence Marinaside before. Looking for French cuisine for my birthday dinner, made them a ready solution. We had a marvelous meal. I went with the escargot and frog legs. They were done to perfection, as was the bouillabaisse for my main. Our server was very attentive to our dining needs and offered up several surprises including a chocolate mousse birthday treat. Many thanks to Provence for an enjoyable dining experience.

I hadn't been to Provence in some time so I was surprised to be sat in an addition of sorts (this 'side-hallway' type room to the right of the hostess stand)...the atmosphere is lacking and you feel somewhat like they are placing you in the back/extra seatin, despite the restaurant not being full and we made a reservation a week before. Our waiter was young, curt and a bit of a know it all. We were a table of 40 something individuals who had all spent a considerable amount of time in the restaurant industry when we were in our 20's so we 'get' what being a good server should be. The food was mediocre and felt dated like the only reason the restaurant is still around is because of the location. It was their 'Sweet 16' thus they had birthday pricing?? And gold accented 'Sweet 16' decor around the bar...it was so tacky. We heard their brunch is quite good but I would not return for the food, atmosphere or overall dining experience, nor would I recommend it to anyone. Sorry Provence, you need to try harder considering how many options there are in the city now.

We had a delicious dinner while celebrating three birthdays; the restaurant went to the trouble of surprising the birthday guys with pieces of cake and candles! So very delightful! The staff were perfect; kind, professional and courteous. The noise level is louder so we older folks do have trouble hearing each other- but our 34 year old son said that that is normal in today's restaurants.

Had a fantastic time on Valentine's Day at Provence Marinaside.

Staff were professional, courteous and attentive. Food was smaller portions, but excellent and let ft not feeling I would have wanted more...so just perfect.

View into False Creek was exquisite and the soft jazz trio enhanced the nice ambience and overall experience.

Highly recommend!

I was traveling on business and was dining solo. I chose this restaurant because it was well reviewed and had extended the restaurant week tasting menu. It was a bit disappointing. The first course was lovely, although I was surprised how cold the duck roulette was. The entree was tasty, but it wasn’t French. That was probably my mistake for not choosing the only French entree out of several. The cheese course for dessert did not have the proper accompaniments - it was served with toast and olives as though it was an appetizer, rather than fig paste and honey for a dessert. I paid for what I thought was a full wine pairing but it was skimpy. And I had to flag down my waiter any time I needed service - he never asked me how my food was or if I needed anything. I have experienced this before as a solo diner and it’s very insulting. I had very high hopes for this experience and was mostly disappointed, although the food in general was tasty.
