We were looking for a restaurant to celebrate our friend's birthday get together. We do this annually within our small group. My wife did a quick search and found Bistro Provence in Covina, CA.

We liked the many positive online reviews and made a reservation for four. We got there and were completely surprised by the ambience. A cozy fine dining experience with live music! The solo guitarist for the night was rockin'. The waiting staff was friendly and attentive.

As for the food I ordered a seafood pasta dish. Portion was on the smaller side but it was filling. As for the taste of my dish please view the pix. It is a before and after pix. Delicious!

Our overall rating for Bistro Provence in Covina is EXCELLENT. We will be regulars there through the years. Great food and a professional staff are hard to come by.

you would never know that such a marvelous restaurant exists in the shadow of a giant Vons supermarket.
we made reservations for an earlier dinner, and were cheerfully greeted. we were given the table of our choice, which was a delightful corner seat. service was consistently happy, attentive, and all recommendations were appreciated.
the value for the four-course meal is SUPERB. the mushroom soup is soooo delicious, and nicely presented. the spinach salad with manchego and dates is a great combo, and has already been reproduced at home to great acclaim. lamb chops were perfectly done to request, and the bass in capers & lemon was tender and flavorful. also: yummy bread. thanks for the refills on that!
we were encouraged to take our time and enjoy our meal and each others' company, and never felt rushed. very welcoming, and we wish it were in our 'hood so we could make it a more-often special occasion place. love that i can say that this has really classy ambiance, especially for a restaurant hidden in a strip mall. well done, Bistro Provence, we'll be back!

Delicious food. Great service. Nice ambiance. And now, my new favorite place.
Don't be swayed by the strip mall location; behind those curtained doors is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food.

It is on the pricey side, but the food is fantastic and the service is impeccable. I tried many of their dishes but the Bass Picata is amazing and they make a great Caesar Salad and their soups are fantastic as well.

A Disneyland, Universal Studios vacation from Northern California and we need food. A family of four with thirteen year old twins. Where to eat? Enough mediocre food from the theme parks. Starving for good food and good atmosphere. And we found it here. Very friendly staff, with very good food. A nice selection from the menu to satisfy everyone. A great place to relax and enjoy a very nice meal.
