I found Provence through Open Table and checked out its Trip Advisor comments too; things were positive and that was our experience as well. My wife and I were in the Albany area for a wedding and were delighted by Provence. We enjoyed a bottle...More

We visited on Mothersday, a very busy day for most restaurants. This place was no exception. Not usually fond of buffets, but I was very impressed with the choices and the quality of the food. Plenty of fine cheeses and salamies and fresh salads to...More

Friends from out of town wanted to eat at Provence because it was centrally located to all involved. We were all pleased with our meals (lamb, mussels, filet and salmon) and our sever was quite attentive. The only negative was the wait for our entrees....More
