We visited here on Tuesday 20th of April for a birthday brunch as a couple. We arrived and spoke to the host (Josh), who was not friendly, and had a condescending attitude. We asked for a table in the sun on the street, where they...had multiple free tables. He proceeded to seat us in the shade in the patio. We once again asked to be seated in the sun out near the street. In response, Josh said that only tables of 3 could be seated outside, as they had seats made up for 4, but had approx. 4 tables free. That would be ok, but they already had multiple groups of x 2 people already sitting at a table of 4. We addressed this with another waitress, who mentioned that the host was part of management and there was not much that she could do. We asked once more if we could be sat outside, however he would not accomodate us and essentially dismissed us. We proceeded to go next door to OEB, who seated us at a table of 4, outside near the street with no issues. And we had beautiful food!! As we ate our breakfast in OEB, these tables at Provence (that we had been earlier refused) remained free the whole time! They missed our business, and in a time like this where most restaurant businesses have been appreciative of customers who wish to support them, this was very unusual. If this condescending attitude, and refusal to seat willing customers with some degree of flexibility and accomodation, then the future of the restautant is bleak with the staff currently employed. In particular, we found our interaction with Josh extremely dissappointing and lacking in personal skills. If he is indeed part of management, then I pity staff working with him, if this is how he treats customers.More

We had breakfast today and the service and food was so good. Provence is making the best of a difficult situation by providing a great experience and above standard food and service. They are so well organized. You can’t beat the location for a waterfront...table in Vancouver.More

Great food and presentation! We took crab and lobster risotto and albacore tuna. Both were very flavourful and delicious. Great service and patio dining with great view of the marinaside. Will be back

Disappointing - We decided to try Provence for a birthday dinner but we were very disappointed with the service. Owners had to let go of a lot of staff due to covid restrictions and it definitely showed, they were completely under staffed! It took 15...minutes to get water and another 10 minutes before we had a chance to order our food. The food was over priced for what we got. Bits of shell in the lobster and crab as well. Staff checked on us once throughout the meal and once when we were done with our mains. Our waitress never came back and checked on us so we couldn’t order dessert and drinks, we had to get our bill by stoping a random staff member. Unfortunately I will not be back and do not recommend.More

Restaurant is located on a quiet street facing the marina. There is space separation or plexiglass between the tables outside and heat lamps! Great service. The food was wonderful. We tried their monthly 2 course special option of duo cured steelhead cucumber salad and choucroute...de la mar and from their regular menu the Provencal sampler plus prawn and scallops spaghettini. Visually appealing and great on the taste buds. They even have what reminds us of Sampan canopies over their curbside patio seating, great idea to keep customers dry.More

I had visited this restaurant several times and it was always decent. This visit was poor. Food quality and service were simply not there. The restaurant definitely needs an overhaul - it’s tired and a bit dirty looking. I wouldn’t recommend or go back.

I had a delicious brunch with my husband and my son. I love eating outdoors, so, this was the perfect place. The waiters refilled our cups with coffee several times and they also took us good pictures (not all the waiters do that). From our...table we were able to see the creek and the people walking on the seawall.More

The food from the dine out menu was delicious. The seating arrangement was appropriate and comfortable, we felt safe. The service was a bit strange. It was like the server was terrified of the two of us. She came at arms length to our table,...nearly threw the bottle of wine at us and told us to pour it ourselves. Didn't bother to ask if we would like to taste it first or come back to see if we were satisfied with it. When our meals arrived, they were almost thrown on the table as well. Fortunately we were happy with them because I don't think she would have returned. I understand we're all going through the fear of being around others and really need to stay as far apart as possible but the entire experience was a bit weird. We left a big tip anyway because it's hard on anyone working in the service industry these days. Thank you for keeping the restaurants open for us.More

Loved by people in the downtown area but I thought it was a bit over rated. Some creative foods but over priced. Great location and the patio is well heated. Good bloody Caesars. Our waiter was excellent

It was a beautiful day to have dinner out on their patio and look onto the false creek seawall. We had a very good meal of calamari, ravioli and mussels with fries. Friendly, good service. Pay street parking can be challenging or park in the...parking lot on the side street.More

Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its

responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row'

They have always had a daily feature at "tappy hour" with a shortlist of discounted drinks, but I am not sure what the current reality is as they reopen after COVID.
