My husband and I went here for a date night. When we were seated, we were seated in the back. The staff was very nice. My husband ordered snails, and I had a pasta dish which was extremly hot and my husband ended up eating that too. I looked at the menu again and it was not noted that it... More

Wonderful. Very nice service, seated at our reservation time. Selection of drinks, beer and wine and champagne very good. Great options for appetizers; we had raw oysters, truffle fries, escargot and one other. Main dishes. Salmon, chicken, beef, one vegetarian dish. All were well presented and tasty! I highly recommend !

This restaurant was one of the reasons we chose to break our journey at Albany. We were 3 for dinner; myself, my wife and our daughter. Our choices included oysters and chevre en croute for appetisers; medium duck, Homard Portugaise and Bouillabaisse, All were excellent.

Very good food in an unlikely, strip mall location. Once inside, the ambiance is lovely (music a bit loud, though). Had lovely coquilles st.jacques and creme brulee. My friends had a delicious-looking steak frites.

Food was very good, and wine list is pretty broad, prices reasonable for the quality. Mussels, onion soup gratinee, escargot, salads and saddle of lamb were all tasty and nicely done. Our only issue is the wide open space - in my mind, a French restaurant needs to be cozy, almost crowded. I'd still return for the food.

My husband and I went Provence last night for our anniversary. We've eaten here many times. It was one of the places we saved for special occasions. The evening got off to a good start. The server was new to the restaurant, but seemed very polite and well mannered. We settled on a wine and placed our order. The first... More

We have been to Provence many times and will continue to go back. The food is very good; the menu changes from time to time so we can't recommend anything specific. The only problem we have encountered is that the service is rather spotty at times.

At some restaurants the lunch offerings do not match up to the dinner menu. Provence is an exception. For the past several years I have stopped here for dinner when traveling in the area. They offer the same fine service and several delicious choices for lunch. I enjoyed the charcuterie and a salad of spring greens with smoked salmon and... More

Had dinner here Saturday nite. Escargot was over seasoned & drenched in salt. My duck was rubbery & no hint of the cherry sauce it was supposed to be presented with. Husbands lamb was tasteless. Good wait service but can't make up for the $100 plus meal that left you flat. Won't be back until they get their game back.
