Years ago, we used to like this restaurant, and I remember a lovely evening meal with friends on their outdoor patio. I went back recently with friends for lunch. What a let-down: although the place was almost empty, we had to wait over 30 minutes to get our crepes... even though we were told they prepare them ahead of time.... More

My husband and I have been to Provence several times over the past years, but we had Brunch/Lunch there on Sunday and it was WOW. My husband had the Snails w/ Rochefort and then the Moules Frites and I had the Quiche of the day. We followed the meal with Ile Flottante. The food was outstanding the service was friendly... More

Came here for a mid-size group dinner for business. Parking was a bit interesting: you just park behind the restaurant on a dirt lot. We went in, a big table was set for us. As a French restaurant, the wine list is expectedly good. I had a Sauvignon Blanca that I was happy with. I get a salad, mahi mahi,... More

The owner is always there to greet you and resolve any issues that might come up over service and/or food. The food is outstanding, I had the Moroccan Lamb, the others had fish and all very satisfied. My personal concern is that the tables are quire closely set to maximize the number of seats. This might be an issue if... More

Provence was recommended to us a couple times over the last few years and we finally made it there. Our only regret is not having gone sooner! This place is wonderfully delightful. The staff is knowledgeable on the drinks and menu. I asked Larry (our server) to describe their onion soup and he provided an in depth description that beautifully... More

I have eaten dinner at Provence many times. It is housed in a modest wooden building. All changes once you enter. The decor is elegant and the staff is pleasant, polite and most helpful. The food is a delight if you favor a French cuisine. Seafood is their specialty. I favor their catch of the day cooked in rock salt.... More

This is a first class French restaurant. Excellent service, you are made to feel special and the food is like being in Provence, the real one. It is excellent, French-inspired cooking.

This was not our first visit to Provence. The others have ranged from very good to excellent. We had a guest visiting and Provence sounded interesting to her. This evening was better than any dining experience we have had in the "triangle" area and we have tried most all of the highly rated places. The woman who was our server... More

Absolutely delicious. Had a spinach salad with goat cheese & beets then salmon with more goat cheese. It was nice to have large amount of olive tapenade on the bread with olive oil

Party of four that enjoyed the Foie Gras, Escargot, Moules and Cuisses De Grenouille to start with every dish being exceptional. Entrees included the Filet De Canard Wellington, Mahi-Mahi and the Tournedos à La Sauce Poivre Vert. Both the MahiMahi and Filet were exceptional while the Duck was just OK. Attentive and knowledgable service in a quaint atmosphere. Will definitely... More
