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.

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!!!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

New ownership has done a great job. The food is excellent and may be better than before. Prices are a little higher than before, but given the quality of the food, they’re inline with other Coral Gables restaurants. I will definitely go back.

We are used to the authentic French Restaurant that the Provençal was. The atmosphere is cold and sterile. Before, you felt like you were in France for an evening. Not anymore. The food was acceptable but serving potato chips as a starch is not acceptable. The lamb was requested medium, it was medium well. They had one non alcoholic beer left. Overall disappointing bc we really miss FRANCE and Danny.
