We went the night there was a jazz band, which gave a nice atmosphere to the evening. Everything about the evening was great: the music, the friendly staff, the decor of the place, the delicious food!

The service was excellent ,the price for steak -reasonable and perfectly prepared . The $10 for just OK onion soup was disappointing. Nice ambiance, easy parking in Stuyvesant Plaza.

I alway enjoy my meal at Provence. Not only is the food delicious and well prepared, the restaurant itself transports you to the French countryside. Thank you for another relaxing and enjoyable lunch.

We had dinner at Provence the other night and all chose the Restaurant Week Prix Fixe. We generally have had good meals at Provence, but this was a disappointment. The salmon was dry and had some kind of pesto paste on the side. The dessert...More
