We came for this first time (and most likely our last) on Mother's day. They had a special menu for the special occasion. Overall the food was okay. I had the Hommard A La Portuguese (Lobster, Shrimp with Chorizo & white bean ragout in a fennel-citrus-tomato broth. It was very bland. My boyfriend had the Canard L'orange Pan roasted orange...

We visited on Mothersday, a very busy day for most restaurants. This place was no exception. Not usually fond of buffets, but I was very impressed with the choices and the quality of the food. Plenty of fine cheeses and salamies and fresh salads to start your meal followed by top notch carving station. Lamb, fillet, turkey and ham sides... More

Friends from out of town wanted to eat at Provence because it was centrally located to all involved. We were all pleased with our meals (lamb, mussels, filet and salmon) and our sever was quite attentive. The only negative was the wait for our entrees. While the six of us were enjoying ourselves, we did notice that the main course... More

This restaurant is located in an undescript mall but the initial look belied the quality of the staff, food and wine. I had the salmon - i agree with the other reviewers that portions are small but the entree was perfectly proportioned (with quinoa) and cooked with perfectionism. Good wine list, we chose a moderately priced Sonoma chardonnay which turned... More

We’ve been disappointed in the past, but unfortunately decided to give it one more try for lunch. I wish we had gone somewhere else! I ordered the scallop risotto, which the menu stated came with an arugula salad. When our food arrived, there was a small fork-full of arugula on top of about a third of a cup of risotto... More

There was a group of us(8 people) that met at Provence for lunch. Six of us are retired and two are still young and still working. We all started with brewed ice tea with lemon. Since it was lunch we didn't have appetizers to start. Two people had the Poulet Panini Wrap - Grilled Chicken, Roasted Peppers, Gruyere, Arugula and... More

Food is always at a higher caliber when we've dined here. Our first time attending on a Friday night, so we found a very competent 4 piece easy jazz band playing. This brought the noise level up some and made conversation a bit strained, but it quieted down after the after-work bar crowd cleared somewhat. Usually much quieter on a... More

We no longer live close enough to use this restaurant but, when we did live in the vicinity, the several meals we had were well prepared and presented. We were in no way disappointed with our meals. It is a viable alternative to the other eatery options locally and regionally. We've been to France three times and Provence reinforces our... More

The food is always amazing here. The only struggle for lunches is that is can be a long meal and hard to fit in if you are time constrained.
