I went to Provence with 3 friends to celebrate a birthday. We shared the escargot appetizer - it was excellent! We all had fish entrees. All the entrees were exceptional - very nice presentation, perfectly prepared fish, with excellent vegetable and rice sides. And the desserts were to die for. We shared the profiteroles and pain perdu. Overall, a wonderful evening of conversation with friends complimented by great food and wine.
We went on a quiet night after Valentine’s week and it was excellent! The canard Wellington is a must have!!
We went for a late Valentines Day dinner and were very pleased. The restaurant was very warm and friendly. The food was excellent and our service was very good. We can’t wait to go back and take our friends.
My new favorite restaurant! The menu had so many great options and the food was spectacular.
Just fabulous! Perfect Friday lunch with wine and escargot!
very fine experience..........................................................................................................................
It was the perfect place for Valentines dinner. Excellent meal and warm and friendly atmosphere.
The meal and the service were excellent
This is such a classy little place. The staff are all very friendly and courteous. I went for Valentine's Day and they were very efficient and seated everyone within a matter of minutes (even one couple who didn't have a reservation). The food we had was phenomenal. They also have a nice outdoor patio that I think would be nice to sit in on clear, cool nights!
We really like the scale and relaxed atmosphere of Provence. The menu is fresh and innovative, though this visit was for Valentine's day and the menu was more tailored. In spite of that, it was broad enough to please most anyone's taste. The lobster tails over risotto were superb. As a former New Englander I tire at the way southern chef's botch cooking lobster. However, these were real Maine lobster tails, cooked to perfection. The service was up to its usual very high standard. A selection of a white wine (from France) was good, but a bit pricey as chosen by our waiter. (We are almost always US and other country wine drinkers.) While we rarely eat dessert, the Profiteroles beckoned us and they were excellent. Over all a very nice evening.
Very good experience!!! Great date dinner!
Superb valentines dinner, excellent food and service!
The food was amazing especially for the price. However, the atmosphere is very pale, in decor and the people that attend it. The waiter must be new, because he was not very good and not very polite to guests, like a server should be.
We had high hopes driving from Raleigh after being patrons of Lil & Lori Lacassagne, previous owners of Saint Jacques, for years before they sold out and left for Gibsonville. We started with cocktails in the bar. But, there didn't seem to be anyone tending and at one point there were three behind the tiny bar, which made it a little haphazard for a Friday night, which was a bit concerning. No sommelier was there, nor a maître d', just the manager and wait staff attempting to make cocktails. The food was excellent, as was the wine we chose ourselves. The ambiance was lacking as the music was not at all effective for creating an atmosphere and the rooms acoustics left something to be desired. The whoever was excellent and will bring us back for a second look. We recommend the mussels for a first course and take advantage of the fish du jour. Parking was available off street. There's potential here if the staff can get the front of house together to make it an experience.
Provence is a true little gem in Carborro. Set in an old house, the restaurant has a lot of charm and ambience. The menu is authentic and the food was excellent. A great dining experience.
Disappointing food. When claiming to be a French restaurant, one would expect to eat accordingly.
The Team at Provence of a Carrboro is great. The food is delicious and the wine list is very extensive you are sure to find your favorite. I went for dinner and brunch the next day, I loved it very much. Make sure you stop by and give them a try. It’s worth it.
My cousin and I were very impressed by our overall experience at Provence. The wine list was extensive and our waiter was very accommodating. We enjoyed the atmosphere and delicious French cuisine! We highly recommend Provence for any occasion.
Wonderful brunch! Carrboro’s best Sunday brunch, in fact...or maybe even the entire Triangle’s! Check it out.
We like Provence for the quiet ambiance, good service, and mostly good food/wine.
Food experiences from recent visits— very good (fish four ways, lobster bisque, trout amandine, escargot, bread pudding); not as good (salad with mango because mango not ripe and cream brûlée-extremely shallow).
