The food was outstanding. Service was good although a bit slow between drinks and appetizers. Overall we really enjoyed our dinner. It’s great to have a very good French restaurant in the Gables.
When we were finishing dinner tonight at La Provencal, on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, my wife turned to me and said, “I could come here every night.” That’s the way I feel too. Toby had risotto for her main dish. She has ordered it in restaurants in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Paris, and Miami. But tonight was the best she’s ever tasted, she said. I always like to sample that dish, even though I never order it for dinner and I can understand her reaction. The cheese, the mushrooms, the pine nuts, and the grain combined to make a heavenly taste so delicious I may finally order it for my main dish. But there are so many dishes like that on their menu. Fish, fowl, meat, perfectly cooked with accompanying vegetables beautifully, and appetizingly, presented. In an ambience so pleasant you want to linger over every bite; with service that is gracious, professional, caring, attentive, and very personable. And tonight we ordered a Margaux from a wine list that will impress any wine lover. I love eating there. And if you only knew what a critical, impossible to please person I am you’d understand how rare it is for me to praise any restaurant as I do this one.
Truly great service received from multiple workers aside from the very attentive waitress. Refreshingly, my group was not anywhere hurried to leave upon completion of our meal and drinks.
Puzzling though was how the maitre 'D schmoozed with a guest couple with which he had acquaintance but neglected to chat with any other diners. I'm not saying I cared but it didn't make for good PR and certainly not enough to ruin a near perfect dining experience.
Not the same as before
We were a little disappointed because the Restaurant did not offer regular lunch menu, only Brunch. The food used to be more french than it is now and that was another disappointment.
The food was very good and the service was attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and eat there again.
Eating at Le Provencal is always pleasant. The service is great and the ambiance wonderful. The kitchen though is jus a little off. Notwithstanding a very nice and comfortable spot for dinner with friends.
This was our first visit, and we look forward to coming back. The food and service was reminiscent of some wonderful restaurant experiences in southern France. Very friendly and attentive service, excellent wine selections, and superbly prepared food. Our choices included the cheese platter as starter, and prawns and the halibut special as entrées. All were delicious. We also welcomed the more subdued atmosphere, in contrast to some of the more “high energy“ restaurants in the Gables. Highly recommend!
I have known this restaurant for 30 years and it is not the same. Might it be new owners? Food was ok but the service was very slow. 3 tables were put together and they were at different levels. The Chairs were low. The expresso coffee was so little that I measured it to be 1 1/2 teaspoon. I complained and the waiter brought a normal expresso. Expensive and not a good value
I hadn't been to Le Provencal since they sustained damage from Hurricane Irma. The new decor (there is a new owner) is really nice. The food is finer and the presentation much better. I like it & will be back.
The restaurant has changed ownership in the last 6 months. We did not realize this until arriving and, by chance, meeting the new owner. He seems to be trying to maintain some of the tradition of the old restaurant, but is definitely bringing a new, contemporary approach - to the décor and ambiance, the staff and service, and the food. We did experience some let down on the service, as our initial server was completing a shift from earlier in the day and so did not stay with us throughout and so we were dropped a bit in receiving direct attention. But overall the staff did provide us an adequate and not overly intrusive amount of attention. The new menu is interesting and the food we chose was delicious and shows promise for being a very good quality meal with variety and interest.
The food was terrific. The service was too slow! Arrived at 6pm and left at 9:30pm, unacceptable!
We waited over 1 hour and 15 min after we were seated and placed our order for any morsel of food to arrive! Then just one dish was bought in for my husband and rest of our party waited another 10 minutes for our dishes . BIG disappointment!! Don’t go there - what a shame !!!
The worst experience I had in many years. All the personnel looked like little kids running a restaurant!!!! The dessert was the first plate that came to the table... before the main course....it was Mother’s Day so that added to the poor experience.... my recommendation STAY AWAY FROM THIS RESTAURANT !!!!!!!
Horrible service, we had to wait 1hr and 20 minutes for our breakfast. After the long wait the order was not correct
Food is good but they need to significantly improve the service
It could be an excellent place for dinner on a regular weekly basis but the service we had on May 12 left a lot to be desired. Food was very good but extremely slow out of the kitchen. Waiter was extremely apologetic, but it was out of his control.
Need to improve in order to realize true potential!!!!!!
The ambiance, the food and the service from Meghan was fantastic - we had a great time. Thank you for making our evening so special.
We stopped in a few days ago for lunch and the food and service was so outstanding we decided to return for dinner with our fingers crossed. The dinner menu gave us even more wonderful choices and the service was even more attentive. I’m a very difficult and demanding person but I found everything met my (my wife tells me) very high standards for presentation, taste, and service. We are going to France next month. The chef and staff at Le Provençal has given us a very nice preview of all the delicious food we expected to eat there. We expect to return often.
After they change ownership the service is not up to par very disappointing when day didn’t know even how to take my debit card incredible bad situation
Aside from it being impeccably clean (including the bathrooms) one of the best French Onion Soups ever. Thanks to Thomas & Stefan...excellent service!!!
Food was very good. Service was
Excelentes escargots, costillas de cordero
Le Provençal was awesome. Loved the food which has the classics, ie french onion soup is the best we have had in years, salads were unique and flavorful and entre’s were beautifully and tastefully done. Service very good and staff is Really nice. What a pleasant and wonderful experience ! P.S. new decor is very cool !
I thought the new menu was good and most of our party of 7 enjoyed their dinners.
However, the restaurant was careless about specific food allergies and had to recook one person's dinner. In addition, they made a mistake on the bill and charged us twice for one meal. It was difficult to get butter, refill on water or special requests. The waiter was either busy or inattentive. Perhaps these are some of the kinks in new ownership or a busy Saturday night. I might give it one more try in a few months, because the food was good.
The food and service ere outstanding. The only negative was that the temperature in the restaurant was quite warm until we asked if the AC could be lowered. Once that occurred the dining experience was great. Will definitely return and will consider the Sunday Brunch option as well.
Disappointed. I used to frequent the original restaurant located a few blocks away. The place had a cozy, old world charm, and the menu was always a treat of French dishes. The new location is not cozy, the high ceilings make for much noise, and the service while attentive, did not make up for the so so food.
Great food. Nice setting. Excellent service. On miracle mile...
We were disappointed with the food and the service
I do not believe i am going back
To many good restaurants around to pay a high price
and mediocre food
The food were delicious, services were super good. The owner and staffs were very friendly. Even my kids loved the place. I lived in California, visited Miami on Spring break and wanted to look for a good place to eat. We were very happy that we chose this restaurant. Definitely will come back the next time we visit Miami again.
My friend and I went for Easter. Beautiful spot and most delicious crepes I’ve ever had!
Excellent food and service. Everything ordered from the menu was superb. Brunch is a great value and ideal portion sizes. Will definitely go back soon!
The food, service was amazing. Thank u to Roger and Tommis for making my bday dinner so special. I will recommend this restaurant to everyone
Great lunch experience. Stephan and Paola were great waiting on us.
Food was good, especially the prawns , the onion soup and the creme brulee.
Please to visit , next time will be for dinner!
Excellent restaurant, wonderful food and service - fresh and well prepared ingredients. One of the top restaurants in Coral Gables no doubt!
Great food and service.
Food was delicious but the service was atrocious. This former neighborhood gem is now a looser. These clients for over 20 years will not be returning anytime soon.
They are still getting their act together after change of owners. Food is still very good and authentic, albeit much less in quantity, and staff is attentive; but the warm hominess, after redesign, has been replaced with a very modern tone. No more colors of Provence. No table cloths. No salt and pepper on tables. Water glasses are very small tall and narrow. Maybe it fits better with the trendy design to which Miracle Mile was subjected. 20 tables for 2 lined up against a banquet bench isn't my idea of intimate French dining with my wife , but adds for flexibility of party size I guess. I'll try again in a few months after they settle in. If I want trendy, techno beat, modern... no I will never want trendy techno beat modern.
New ownership has done a beautiful refurbishment. Food was outstanding from preparation to delivery. Only deficiency I can comment on is a lack of sufficient wait staff. Hopefully that will be corrected. Will definitely return.
Carlos has done a spectacular job with this Coral Gables institution. The food and wine are absolutely amazing. The service is very warm and friendly. This is my favorite spot - period.
