This restaurant got good reviews so we decided to take the plunge at the Williamsburg Winery. The location and decor is charming. The first courses were delightful. The entrees...not so much. Both entrees were way over salted and the pasta was way over seasoned with vinegar. The balance was just not there for either the meat dish or pasta selection.... More

We enjoyed our meal and they have a good selection of items. The restaurant is very good, but unfortunately not inexpensive. Such is life if you want the finer things....

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.

Thank Don B
