Food was very good although portions were a little on the smaller side. Service was also very good. We sat in the back but while passing through the front of the house it was obvious that it was tight quarters in the seating department. I've been told that they have a very good jazz night I will be back to... More

We ate inside with a jazz trio playing at an appropriate volume. I started with the Beet & Endive Salad (Candied Walnuts, Pears, Roquefort & Mustard Vinaigrette) which was excellent. As it looked like I licked the plate clean our very good server remarked that I obviously didn't like the salad. I had the striped bass special (also excellent) and... More

I went a few days ago (It's now 8/18/16). I have to say that Ryan is an attentive waiter. I introduced myself to one of the cooks, a Hispanic guy from New York City who has cooked for Chinese restaurants down there. I liked that Provence gave me a chance to sample French food, which I had not down in... More

Great ambiance, very good food, and attentive waitstaff. A friend and I went for a Friday Happy Hour after a conference, and we enjoyed the tapas menu and wine. It was a very enjoyable experience, and I would like to go for dinner in the near future.

Authentic French cuisine, Boullabaisse and pate plate really, really good. Wait staff very attentive, but do not rush you. A delightful dining experience.

This restaurant is located in a smaller shopping plaza. The menu is nicer than expected from what the restaurant looked like from the outside. I had steak frites. They weren't the best I've had but they were good. The meat was served on top of ratatouille and it made the meat a little soggy. The fries were delicious.

The service was good if bit confused as to whose responsibility we were. But the food was very good. Wild mushroom soup and the risotto of the evening were excellent. My wife had escargot and salmon and was well pleased. The only real downside was the noise level which made conversation at the table difficult.

We were in town for a reunion staying near Colonie Mall. As we used AroundMe to try to locate a great place for dinner, we were somewhat taken by the fact that everything was a chain, and from reviews, They were all average. Finally by expanding the search a bit, we fount Provence. Don't be put off by its location... More

Went with family members for dinner. Food was very good and service was very good also. Groupon coupon eased cost.

The service was terrible. The restaurant was not busy, yet we waited forever for our appetizers and, when they appeared, mine was cold and greasy. I sent it back and the waitress told me they wouldn't charge us for it - I should think not! We waited another eon for our entrees, which were brought by the floor manager. I... More
