Although we did not experience dinner, we did have breakfast and it was wonderful. So relaxing, inviting and scrumptious. Beautiful presentations of foods.

I had dined at Cafe Provençal several years ago while overnighting at the Wedmore Hotel. At that time I was very impressed with the cuisine and service. During a more recent visit with a companion both service and cuisine were very good, but not quite as good as on my earlier visit. While a grilled whole fish was beautifully presented,... More

Gourmet. Oysters. Sea bass. Scallops. Spinach pasta. All 3 diners enjoyed the beautiful and satisfying meals.... We have traveled extensively and place this restaurant in the best category considering price. Just excellent. Service was fabulous and friendly. Special mention for Kara. Breakfast croissants and quiche were excellent..... Will be back!

Our Wine and Dine Group of 13 people thoroughly enjoyed Cafe Provencal. We had a capable and courteous server in a separate room. Everyone enjoyed his or her entree selection and the reasonably priced wine. This was a repeat visit for the group which says there must be something special about the venue.

This was our first time back to Cafe Provencal since the new chef arrived a few months ago. The food was very good with excellent service. Amber did a wonderful job and was the most pleasant server that we have encountered in a long time. For appetizers my wife had a cheese board with a sampling of very delicious cheeses,... More

Inventive dishes and delightful pairings served with flair by our favorite waiter, Craig! The cast-iron pork roast was moist and full of flavor. The ahi tuna was seared beautifully and playfully complimented with tomato confit with vanilla, homemade tabouli with pistachios and cornbread infused sauce. Don't forget half-price wine served Sunday through Thursday!

Our first visit since the change in the culinary staff was a delightful surprise. There was a good turnout for a Thursday night and the meals were impressive. The staff could not have been more welcoming. The chef even came to make sure we were enjoying our meals. Everyone's attitude, if they can maintain it, should make for a successful... More

Our stay at Wedmore Place included a complimentary Continental breakfast of fresh-baked croissants, great coffee, fresh fruit and yogurt, but Pricilla was soon plying us with goat-cheese and asparagus quiche fresh from the oven. Completely unexpected, and oh-so-delicious!

Went for a special graduation dinner and one of our dinners was undercooked pork had to be sent back, steak came out not hot, warm at best and soft shell crab was oversalted, the duck was cold. It's a pretty atmosphere but truly I would not return for the food. Our waiter was excellent it was not his fault ,... More
