This was our first visit to Provence and we came due to a gift card. We came on a Saturday evening and even though our server seemed less than enthused to wait on tables, he was efficient and did a good job. We started with...More

The duck at this place is amazing! In fact, everything at this place is amazing! I have never eaten duck before, but it was delicious, not fatty and extremely flavorful. We visited Provence for my nieces graduation dinner and none of us were disappointed ....More

This restaurant in the Sturversant shopping strip looks very nice, with a cool turn-of=the-last century bar inside. My husband loved the onion soup. As a vegetarian I ordered the portobello mushroom sandwich. We waited a long time for our plates and found them edible but...More
