This is probably overlooked as a place for Thanksgiving Dinner but IT is excellent!! Price fixed menu for Thanksgiving Dinner $44.95/person which includes Appetizer, Entrée, Dessert!!! I had Duck breast with brandied cherries, my Wife had the Beef Fillet both were very good!!

We were there on a quiet Wednesday night; the service was excellent and the food well above average. Scallops perfectly cooked and the fish in the seafood bisque was not over-cooked. Soup and 2 tapas was plenty of food and all hit the spot. (The tapas was a little too greasy but the flavor was great.) The menu was inventive... More

We have eaten at the tables here and been disappointed , eating at the bar provided better service and a bar menu that is more appealing to us. The dinner menu is too pricey for the food served. Conversely the bar menu is a bargain . It was tasty and interesting. Bartender was professional and efficient . Enjoyed our visit... More

Was on a work trip and this was close to my hotel near the university. I had the small Steak-Frit which is a charcoal grilled Hanger Steak with Sauce Bordelaise, Seasonal Vegetables & Fries. A Soup de Jour and a Chat La Grave wine. The meal was good and server Sara was nice.

We were there with a small group-6- for dinner and had a variety of small plates, salads and mains. The soup of the day was asparagus but had no flavor of asparagus or any seasonings. Some of the salads came out without dressing. Mains were good but not great and considering the quality it was overpriced. Our server unfortunately couldn't... More

The last couple times I'ver been to Provence I vowed that I wouldn't return. This time I arrived thinking maybe it will be better at lunch than the last couple times I've had dinner there. It wasn't. Potato tarragon soup was the consistency and color of dishwater. I don't know what dishwater tastes like, but I can report that the... More

Food was very good although portions were a little on the smaller side. Service was also very good. We sat in the back but while passing through the front of the house it was obvious that it was tight quarters in the seating department. I've been told that they have a very good jazz night I will be back to... More

We ate inside with a jazz trio playing at an appropriate volume. I started with the Beet & Endive Salad (Candied Walnuts, Pears, Roquefort & Mustard Vinaigrette) which was excellent. As it looked like I licked the plate clean our very good server remarked that I obviously didn't like the salad. I had the striped bass special (also excellent) and... More

I went a few days ago (It's now 8/18/16). I have to say that Ryan is an attentive waiter. I introduced myself to one of the cooks, a Hispanic guy from New York City who has cooked for Chinese restaurants down there. I liked that Provence gave me a chance to sample French food, which I had not down in... More

Great ambiance, very good food, and attentive waitstaff. A friend and I went for a Friday Happy Hour after a conference, and we enjoyed the tapas menu and wine. It was a very enjoyable experience, and I would like to go for dinner in the near future.
