Had quiche and carrots soup for lunch. It was absolutely delicious. Fresh ingredients and wonderful flavor. Cozy atmosphere with very good service. Family friendly with babies and children. Price is also very reasonable.

The is a place one really wants to like. It's serving a typical French bistro menu, but it's not trying to pretend that it's in Paris, which is a welcome break from the pretense that has invaded Smith Street over the past few years. The endive salad was good but not great - the blue cheese very nice, the endive... More

We have been going to this restaurant for several years, and it never disappoints! First off, love the atmosphere; you truly feel like you are sitting in a French cafe. Background music, soft and unobtrusive, of course in French. Service has always been attentive. Brunch there is a favorite meal for me; large bowl of cafe au lait which reminds... More

I've been visiting Provence en Boite since it opened some ten years ago. The croissants are heavenly as are the pastries. I've never had a meal there that wasn't perfect. Owners Jean-Jacques are very serious about the quality of their food and service, but are also welcoming and gracious.

You can pretend you're in Paris when you eat at Provence en Boite. On a recent Sunday, the food was well-prepared and tasty. A Bloody Mary was one of the best I've ever had and surprisingly inexpensive. Actually, all of the drinks there--from coffee to juice to wine to mixed drinks--looked enticing. Probably the best part of the dining experience,... More

This is a gem in a little Brooklyn neighborhood. Lovely omelets, fantastic cappuccino and lattes. The pastry: I can't stop raving over everything. It was like being back in Paris.

My girlfriend and I wanted to scout out a new restaurant in the area (there are so many) and we decided to give this one a try. It was a Monday, and the special (steak and frites) was recommended! It was and still is delicious, and I'm can't wait til I come on Thursdays for the Seafood special. Locals stop... More
