My wife and I stopped for a light lunch at this establishment whilst visiting Okotoks for the first time. We were shown to a window seat and chose from the menu mushroom soup and quiches. The waiter (owner?) was attentive and polite and the food was truly delicious - all home made! The atmosphere and decor was very French with... More

Thank you to the owners of Bistro Provence for allowing our 38 Girl Guides to come experience a fancy "High Tea" styled party at your lovely restaurant. It was the perfect place for our "little" group. The old post office from 1882 makes a beautiful, quaint little spot to have a wonderful time. Allowed us to get in some local... More

Wonderful authentic French cuisine. Owner served us and was very attentive. It showed that she was very proud of the restaurant. Her husband is the chef. Would definitely recommend however, the seating area is quite small. Quaint for a small gathering but bit sure if they could accommodate a large group.

Bistro is one of my favorite restaurants. Dinner is great quality French cuisine, and lunch is more casual. The food is always delicious and the owners are so fantastic!

The food was okay but the service was terrible. Our server was not able to answer any of our question and they took our order wrong so we had to wait for another 30min to actually receive the food we ordered. So total about 1h or so we were sitting there waiting for our food. Never going back again.

Great appy and dessert but the entree was just okay, too much sauce that covered all the food not just the meat

My husband and I went the week before Valentine's Day as we were both working on V. Day. I was really looking forward to eating at Bistro Provence. We were greeted nicely and taken to our table. The décor is very dated, circa 1980 motorhome. No tablecloths, the cutlery is all thrift store specials. There were only 2 tables occupied... More

I have been to this lovely restaurant run by a local couple several times and the food is consistently excellent as is the service. It is a renovated historical building so the atmosphere is unique. The personal touch they provide is very nice. They can accommodate small parties in a separate room. An excellent place for a business meeting or... More

We went there for our Anniversary Dinner and I have to say I just loved that it is an old house renovated into a restaurant right in Olde Towne Okotoks, very quaint, server was very attentive and most of all the food was delicious. Large portions didn't make you leave wanting more but filled you up. The owner personally came... More

The restaurant has wonderful potential. The food is absolutely outstanding with the quality, presentation and price of a high end fine dining restaurant. However, they really need to put some time and effort into the decor. The restaurant is in a beautiful historic building. They could keep the charm of the old building but also make it a bit more...
