Another wonderful experience - this time with the Easter 3-course Brunch. Delicious salmon with risotto and snow peas, refreshing spring salad with white balsamic dressing. Nice wine recommendation - an Alsatian white "Hugo" that was crisp and refreshing. Friendly and efficient service from our server, Tom.

We continue to enjoy dining at Brasserie Provence. They have an outstanding wine selection, service has always been very good and the food consistently good. The menu does not change much but all of the items on it are good. I would recommend this dining for any occasion, lunch or dinner.

We were disappointed. The menu "reads" great, but the execution of the dishes was average, at best. The lamb was very tender, but not much seasoning. The duck was cooked perfectly, but really had no flavor. The Coq au Vin was a little dry and over salted.

My wife and I have had many fine meals at BP but the most recent was the best. The bluefin tuna was marvelous. I will also note, for review readers with food allergies, that my wife, who suffers from same, has always found the staff to be understanding and flexible with regard to on-the-fly preparations of dishes without the ingredients that give her trouble.

The food was extremely good as was the wine service. I enjoyed the steak and frites (remember the hanger cut is not the most tender but it is tasty and affordable) and my friend thought the trout was excellent. Note to hostess: Please do not give women who dine together inferior tables.

Excited to be back in Louisville and eat at Brassiere Provence again. Wonderful Sole Meuniere with asparagus and rice. Flaky and buttery - lived up to expectations. Attentive and friendly service, par usual. Appreciated the wine recommendation that was right on (photo). Bananas foster and French-press coffee were perfect endings to the meal.

We were there on a night when a singer performed. Her voice was lovely and it added so much atmosphere. My husband always has a hamburger which is the best in town. I opted for steak frites and substituted tomatoes provencal for the frites. If I weren't on WeightWatchers, I wouldn't have done that! I was disappointed in the tomatoes. In spite of that, it was a very enjoyable meal and evening.

We ordered escargot expecting a delicious texture and a woodsy flavor instead a received a tasteless escargot that I could have purchased in amazon.
I was looking for a rich and filling, elegant and elaborate with a good presentation. Perhaps I need to try the other French restaurant in the area .

Responded on February 24, 2019

Dear Juan, there are many recipes for escargots. Ours includes oven-roasted Burgundy snails, Pernod and walnut garlic butter. We're sorry that you did not enjoy our appetizer, but if you had told us that you were not happy with the dish, we would have replaced it with something else. Guest satisfaction is our priority, but we cannot remedy a situation that we do not know about. Please call me at 502.883.3153 as you gave Provence 2-stars without adding anything else about your experience.

We were initially really excited to try Brasserie Provence for Valentine’s Day but upon arriving saw there was a fixed menu with a set 3-course meal. This would be fine had we known this when setting the reservation and been prepared for the much heftier price tag that would come along with the meal. However we are apparently young and naive, and didn’t realize restaurants tend to do that for special occasions. (I now understand this is commonplace and will be more careful in the future- would probably rather just celebrate V-Day late and have access to the normal menu and pricing. ) Once seatws, we decided to just enjoy the meal and not worry about the money. This would’ve been easier to do had our service been worth the $200 price tag that came along with dinner; our server was adequate, but didn’t check in on us as we would’ve hoped for the occasion; my wife needed a refill on water almost midway through the meal but that was never replenished, and the service and music in the restaurant just wasn’t worthy of what we paid for the experience. Overall it was a semi-disappointing meal as we had looked over the regular menu and been excited to try several items for our first time to the restaurant, and would’ve been happy to get appetizers and drinks and the decently priced normal entrees. But instead we ended up spending almost an entire months’ grocery budget on one night with service and overall feeling of being taken advantage of and feeling duped :/ we probably won’t be back.

Dear David, I am sorry that you were disappointed in your dining experience on V-Day. However when your reservation was made on Open Table, you were clearly notify at that moment that we were only serving a 3-course dinner at $75 per person, and also you were requested to input a credit card to hold the reservation and therefore you received a confirmation stipulating that you will be charged $75 per person if you were a no show. We never have an intention to dupe our guests. Thank you, Guy
