The wait staff was very patient while we waited on the last of our party to arrive. The only negative was we didn’t know the kitchen closed mid-afternoon and the last of our guests could not order lunch.

This was my first dining experience at your restaurant and everyone in our party was extremely pleased with their meal and with the level of service. Our waitress was very outgoing, friendly, knowledgeable, answered our questions about the menu choices and efficient and professional.

I had dinner with my fife and we were little bit disappointed:
Out appetizers, snails and foie gras are both had almost no salt.
The sea bass was little bit better.
For dessert pistachio gelato was not available.
Honestly our visit last year was more enjoyable.
Thank you,
Mark Naiditch.

After being seated quickly we waited nearly 20 minutes for our waiter. Our table ordered two steaks. Both medium rare. One steak came out so charred I couldn't taste the meat. The other steak was cooked medium well. Both steaks were cool, one to the point the butter couldn't melt on it. The staff was pleasant and we received complimentary dessert for our wait. This was my second visit and hand a much better experience the first time.

Food and wine very good. Service was a bit slow from tine to time. The restaurant seemed a bit understaffed and I think we had a relatively new server. She was very friendly but a bit off.

Service was impeccable as usual. Ruby red trout was cooked perfect. I ordered the tuna rare and it was rare but cold. Pad of butter on the tuna was non spreadable due to being cold too. Saffron risotto was great

We went to Brasserie Provence for our anniversary, and it did not disappoint! We went based on the recommendation from friends, and we were so glad we went! We were seated by the fireplace, which was so special, and the food was amazing. I ordered the coq au vin and my husband ordered the trout, and we both left thinking that was the best of each we'd ever had. A great place for a special date night away from the kids, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We didn’t know until we got there, it was a set price for 3 course menu but it was very good. We weren’t disappointed. I had the tomato/goat cheese tart, salmon, & cheesecake; husband had salad, shrimp & raspberry custard-type dessert. Everything was very good & we were full!

I sincerely felt as if I was back in the South of France. The wait staff knew when to come to the table and when not to, just like in France.

I decided to make a reservation for this restaurant while planning a surprise date night for my wife. We’ve eaten French cuisine many times before and this is one of our new favorites. The service, food quality and taste, and atmosphere was all top-notch. The presumed owner was very active in welcoming guests, checking in on tables, and also managing the food service and staff which was very nice to see. Very pleased with this restaurant - we will definitely be back for another date night or even a causal dinner at the bar.

Excellent food. I love the fois gras and the escargot and enjoyed so much the lentils dish with extra vegetables. And my favorite server (Jeffery) is very attentive of dietary needs. Oops, I almost forgot the unforgettable pistachio desert.

We dine here often and are always pleased with each experience. On this visit, there was a large corporate group who took up much of our servers time. She was challenged to check on us as often as usual, but we understood this to be unusual. Great drinks, wonderful food, deserts to die for, table by the fireplace on a cold night, a knowledgeable and charming server...what more could you want? We’ll be back soon!

We were greeted immediately by a very friendly hostess. The lunch menu had many selections and we chose the soup and sandwich combo which was surprisingly reasonable. There is a nice wine list with many French wines. The food was promptly served and pleasing in presentation. Every morsel was delicious!! During nice weather, there is nice seating outside. Definitely one of our new favorite places!

Service was great, atmosphere was good, food tasted good, but the portions for the entre' was not what I would expect for the price. A much cheaper restaurant would have dolled out twice the size. Overall, a good experience and will, most likely, visit again.
