We had another very pleasant lunch. The Rueben, salad Niçoise and onion soup were delicious. The Rueben had thinly sliced tender corned beef and the sauce reminded me of a remoulade. We had the Trio de Provence which was tasty as well. Service has always been good to great.

We were trying to grab a quick lunch and spotted this place. Food and service were very good, and we definitely plan to come again.

We were pleased, even delighted, with virtually every aspect of our dining experience here last night. This is a French bistro and the décor and atmosphere is exactly that and it is very pleasant. It is upscale but casual at the same time. Even though the place was full, the noise was low enough that one could converse easily. The... More

This was our first time at Café Provencal. We have heard a lot about it and although we live in Leawood, KS., our neighbors (who lived in the St. Louis area) said their friends love it. So we tried it for dinner tonight. It is a neat little French restaurant with indoor & outdoor seating. We ate inside and the... More

We are actively trying to come here more often, as my last review noted: we need to add them to our short list when heading out for a nice meal. Wonderful French-inspired menu with service that is mostly attentive but never pretentious. Location in the corner of a (nice) strip mall doesn't exactly scream, "Fantastic food.. Eat here!" but you... More

A great choice for lunch, especially for those of us who enjoy eating 'Out'. Cafe Provencal's patio makes a visit memorable. Today three of us chose quiet corner table surrounded by lovely plantings. Lunch menu included wonderful cream of mushroom soup and huge slices of tasty quiche with crispy crust. Be sure to ask for bread. Friends and I agree... More

Cafe Provençal was chosen for our family get together because of the convenient location but we will go back for the food which was delicious. The three course special was very reasonably priced. The service was just right. We stayed to chat for quite awhile & we were not rushed. The only downside was the bathroom which was one person... More

This is an old standby for me and my love. I really like the interior and atmosphere here. Good parking. Has an outside dining area that I never choose for given that it looks out over the parking lot. Once inside, the menu is never changing but with this winning formula, why would you change?! You can pick three or... More

Interesting food. Coquille St. Jacques was very good. Trout was very good. Chicken in pastry was excellent. Side. Dishes of potatoes and veggies were tasty and nicely complemented the meal. Wine list was solid with many reasonably priced French wines. Outside dining is a plus.
