I used to frequently dine here but hadn’t in the last 2 years. Unfortunately, the place has changed completely. Not the traditional French restaurant. Very disappointing and will not return. Food quality is not the same.

Althoughough This Sunday’s dining experience did not compare favorably with our initial experience of exactly the same meal last Friday ,which was absolute perfection in every way

We discussed this openly and constructively with a very receptive management team

With the full realization of the importance of consistency and the difficulties of batting 1000 every. time, we are sure we they will quickly correct the problem

Bottom line,........we will most certainly return for their lamb chops.........yummy

try this restaurant,you will love it.....particularly on a friday......for a while anyhow

The manager or owner was very unapproachable and not willing to work with us
We left the restaurant and went next store to the Italian restaurant and had a wonderful dinner
We would never return

We have been coming to this restaurant for over 25 years and it was always outstanding.

It has recently been bought by someone else and they unfortunately have changed everything.

What was once a fantastic place with quirky furniture and decor, along amazing food. Is now nothing more than a typical dinner restaurant.

It has lost all of it’s charm and character which made it unique. I don’t think I will be going back any time soon.

Looking forward to an improved dining experience with restaurant under new ownership the past year or so, the maitre d was welcoming and excited to have is . The waiter was inexperienced and really didn’t know proper serving etiquette . Most importantly the food was disappointing and only fair. Onion soup hot and good. Pork pate ok . Lamb shank was not appealing with gooey sauce poured over. Rice on side was awful. The blackened mahi fish had curry on it and was rubbery! The food was mediocre. A real disappointment. Apple tartine was over done and the “lava type” cake was underwhelming. We walked away saying this was not worth another visit.

I was expecting a nice Franch restaurant with white pressed linen tablecloths but what I found was more like a fast food joint with small round tables and no tablecloths. The noise level was so loud that we could not have a conversation. The only thing that saved the night was the fabulous food but honestly I can find great food elsewhere and. It deal with the noise.

Le Provencal in the Gables is under new ownership, with a complete make-over and new menu. To recap, the old Le Provencal was exactly that – old. It was pretty good, but over time its customer base was eroding. So the old owners revamped the menu – not for the better, I’m afraid, which hastened the restaurant’s demise. New ownership has come in and remodeled the layout and the menu, with new chef and staff. Unfortunately the new owners kept the old name, thinking it had value. To the contrary, the old customer base has given up on the old owners, and the old name is a disservice to the new restaurant. This place is much improved with its new menu and chef, and the new owners would benefit from a new. When I was there recently, the sidewalk tables were bustling, but the inside was almost empty. I hope diners rediscover Le Provencal because for the first time in a year, it’s good again.

Food was absolutely amazing but the service could improve. The only real issue was the music. It was too loud and they did turn it down when requested. It was the wrong music - New Orleans jazz - need soft dinner music. If they change the music I would go back and take more friends because the food was so good. The presentation, flavors, choices and on and on were outstanding.

I guess all restaurants have their good and bad days. Tonight was one of those off days for Le Provencal. Too bad it was on a night we came with friends and had recommended the restaurant so highly.
The food was good but the service was not up to the service standard we had had in the past. But we’ll give them one more try and hopefully the next time will be better.

Went with a friend to check out their Miami Spice menu. Didn't end up going with that option but I did order a Steak Au Poivre which seemed to create some confusion. They thought I ordered the Filet Mignon au Poivre which I did not. It was not offered on the menu. What came was a NY Strip, with no Au Poivre Sauce and this was not the Flat Iron steak I thought it was going to be, it came with fries, not potatoes and it was supposed to have veggies and it was brought out with a stewed tomato. I've eaten here before, and I'd go again, but I just wish I had known what the confusion was about.
