Country French inspired restaurant. At La Provence, “cooking with heart” means everything. The menu blithely ignores the cutting edge of urban contemporary French food, and instead reflects the time-honored, time-consuming rustic techniques that in turn reflect the rugged earthiness of the ingredients.

While we have dined here several times over the past few years, we had not been in since last Spring. Each time we visited, we had been very satisfied. We were concerned by recent reviews but found the service and the food to be excellent. We would certainly recommend La Provence for upscale dining.

Had new years dinner and was very disappointed. Duck was cold and dinner was ridiculously expensive. For the quality of food and the price you charge, it is not worth the experience. You need to lower your prices!!!

New Year's eve dinner...Beautiful atmosphere, nearly empty dining area.
Complimentary pate was divine as always. Oysters Rockefeller lacked the main ingredient - pureed spinach, and instead had a topping of overly salty bread crumbs. Main dish - stuffed lobster, was anything but outstanding. Lobster tail was very small, 2 bites at best, and the crawfish stuffing had crawfish the size of dehydrated shrimp cat treats. Wait staff although polite, not trained for fine dining.
Beautiful atmosphere, unfortunately, the worst meal I have ever had at LaProvence. Having dined with all prior owners/chefs, expectations were a high!

The restaurant is pretty, and the fireplace is very nice. Free pate starter was delicious. Charbroiled octopus and arugala salads were winners, too. Unfortunately, that's where the positive review ends. On a cold Thursday night, the dining room was less than 1/3 full yet it took the waitress almost 10 minutes to greet us and take our drink order - despite walking by our table several times. She also didn't seem to know the proper way to monitor and clear the table as dirty dishes were piling up. The pork chop could have been good but was overcooked and extremely dry. My date's tagliatelli had an overpowering amount of some seasoning (fennel, maybe?) that made it barely edible - she left most of it behind. We had planned for dessert but decided it would be a better idea to visit Baskin Robbins. Overall, not competitive with other restaurants in this price range.

One last note - I was surprised how noisy the restaurant was considering how few people were present. They should really consider some noise-attenuating furniture or decorations.

Under recent new ownership, La Provence is on its way to restoring the excellent fine dining reputation that it held for many years under its founder, Chef Chris. Under the Besh Group ( owner prior to current owner), service really suffered. We recently had a group of 13, on Christmas Day afternoon. Ambience, service, hospitality, and menu offerings were great and reasonably priced. Of the 13 entrees, only one was sub-par. Would highly recommend as I think they will continue to get better.

Christmas dinner was wonderful. Going out to eat on a major holiday is always risky. No problems with food or service. This is a quaint and cozy place with consistent food and service.

Took the family for Christmas. Four party of four cost over $300. Not worth the value. Food was average. They have lost their touch
