Went there with a friend for my birthday lunch. We liked the picture of the patio and the Prix Fixe meal with dessert we saw listed online since we were celebrating. The waiter said the Prix Fixe meal with dessert was no longer available even though it was still listed on the restaurant website. The waiter said I would have... More

First of all, we have been dining at Yannick Cam's restaurants since his arrival in Washington, DC with Le Pavillon. At each restaurant that he has created he has brought forward the same excellence that existed in Le Pavillion - excellent quality ingredients, simplicity yet creativity of a dish, quality of the wine list, and service excellence. To this list... More

Our table of five were treated specially, with exceptional lobster purses for appetizer, tender grilled veal chop, duck confit, and risotto with shrimp from sophisticated gourmet French chef Yannick Cam, and a delightful white wine from a small supply not on the wine list. It was a grand occasion with fine service to match the excellent cuisine. Plus we were... More

Tucked away in a side street this is gem of a restaurant. I went for a goodbye dinner for a colleague and had no expectations of this place. I loved it. We had the whole second floor to ourselves as we were a large party. The food was wonderful. The ambiance was warm and chic. The service was great. Would... More

A dear friend and I love to take each other out for a birthday dinner. This time it was my turn to be celebrated and it would be hard to pick a better place than Bistro Provence. Our server was lovely and patiently explained the specials. We both had the "lobster purses" appetizer which was excellent -- pieces of lobster... More

If you love good quality french food- this is the place to have it. Its a small restaurant. Service here is not the best- but most places in DC area is like this. But when you taste any dish you order- your service is not meter anymore. :) This chef is amazing!!!

Our food was fabulous. Each portion was prepared for you separately. We had their seafood specials which were excellent. Our waiter was flakey buy ok. He had to check the prices of his specials which should have been on his pad.

We visited the bistro for the first time. As first floor was very noisy, we were sent to the second floor. The ambiance, decor, table setup and china was excellent resembling a fine restaurant. It should make you feel comfortable and we were. Then we noticed people talking quite loudly and realized that there is no music. It was turned... More
