    One of my favorite restaurants at the shore. Nothing compares or comes close. Innovative prix fix menu that changes monthly. Plenty of food...don't worry based on your first course. Ability to BYO is even better to pair wines to each course. Service is top notch. Always a great culinary experience!

    The duck was excellent but the waffle was strangely flavored with pumpkin pie spice and some sort of savory herb. The croque madame would have been better served classically rather than on a croissant. The bread service was excellent although always uncomfortable with 4 people and only 2 of each choice. Our server was delightful with a charming personality and beautiful voice. However, coffee and cookies were served when our plates had not been cleared. We had to ask to have the table cleared. It was a lovely gesture to bring out a birthday plate complete with lit candle and a sweet serenade but we were still eating our brunch! Unlikely we would go back for brunch but can’t wait to return for their fabulous dinner.

    What a treat! We both did the 3 course and that was certainly enough. We both felt the beignet tree was the biggest hit-truly novel serving style. Lovely place to be: even though it was crowded, we felt that we were having a private meal. They close for two months at the beginning of the year, which makes me like them even more: the hardworking staff gets a break.

    I usually don't rate local places, don't want to impair any small business but Provence is a solid 4 - needs a few tweaks to get a 5. So in the spirit of constructive criticism... little things like wiping down the outside of the soup bowl before serving, more elegant treatment of the escargot (serving them in a pool of butter, sucked the taste out of them) the duck was a bit too dry but the freekah was the star, beignets could've been hotter. The price is fine, certainly without having liquor on the bill, it's downright cheap. Would I go back? Don't know, but there aren't a lot of choices that far south.

    Brunch was divine. Clive, our server, was attentive and answered all of our questions about the menu. He could not be more accommodating or gracious. The food, all cooked to order, was a virtual trip to France. Highly recommend the brunch as early as you can make it. The place is flooded with sunlight in the early hours, and the light jazz playing just sets the mood for a relaxed Saturday morning.

    The food was very good. Servers were friendly but rushed (maybe understaffed). Didn’t explain the process of their price fix. They talked fast and were rushed so it did not feel like a special experience and therefore not a good value when breakfast for 2 was over $70 with tip. Glad we tried it but likely won’t go back.

    We were so looking forward to try this new restaurant. Food was good and tasty but what ruined our experience is when we were denied bread when we asked for some. We were told that only patrons who order the tasting menu get bread! It kept us speechless! Especially for a French restaurant ! Otherwise, although the place is beautiful, it lacks ambience (no background music, fireplace not working), no warm welcome and no acknowledgement of our anniversary neither. Unfortunately, the negative points are the ones we will remember.

    Very thoughtful concept with 2,3,4 course options. Appetizers were delicious and bennet tree fun. If duck entree is not chosen that often would take the duck off the menu. Odd to just severe one piece of short rib.

    We found Provence on a weekend visit to nearby Cape May. The food, ambiance, and service were superb. This was easily the best French food we’ve had since dining in French Grand Case, St. Martin. The offerings of the Chef’s tasting menu and course selection provided interesting options. My husband had the duck with the supplemental Frois Gras and I had the Barramundi. Both were delicately prepared with perfectly matched accompaniments to accent the main. Our appetizers were as equally artfully prepared. The BYOB was an added bonus and made the meal extremely affordable.

    Doing the brunch with friends was the prerequisite for deciding whether we were willing to spend $$$$ for dinner. We were a little disappointed with brunch as the food was not hot nor was it especially that good. The service was good and the noise level was ok as there was only 1 other occupied table. We just expected better quality for the money.

    We had a great experience at Provence ! The service & ambiance was on point!! He had the onion soup which he thoroughly enjoyed! The short rib had to be sent back due to much fat. (Waiter was very apologetic & the bill was discounted . ) We both had the trout which was perfectly cooked & seasoned with a nice crispy skin! Chocolate dessert was delicious & not too sweet! Overall a great experience & good value. We will be back when we’re in the area !!it is a BYOB restaurant which was fine for us.

    Our first time to Provence and Cape May area. We visited this restaurant for our anniversary and had a wonderful time! Our service from our waiter (can’t remember his name but he was from Belarus) was top notch, very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent and especially the presentation of the beignet dessert (a bit on the crispy side) but still good. Can’t beat it being that it’s a BYOB too! I had the French onion soup and braised short rib which was good, a bit on the dry side, could use more sauce but overall a good composed dish. My husband had the mussels and pork tenderloin which he loved. Unfortunately, the hostess didn’t seat us where I requested when making the reservation so we ended up in a different room which I would of preferred the room I initially requested but overall we certainly would go back! Great experience in Cape May area and enjoyed the food here more than when we visited Paris a few years back.
