My husband took me to A la Provence to celebrate our first anniversary. We shared an appetizer of Escargot and a warmed spinach salad. Entrees were the Lamb Osso Bucco and the Duck & Quail, Both were very good. Dessert was a delicious Grand Marnier souffle.

Although I'm still searching for that elusive 5 star restaurant, this is as close as I've come. A group of us went for lunch looking for a place where we could have a quiet conversation over a lovely meal. This was just the place. Everyone was delighted with their entrées. Chicken crepes with vegetables, crab cakes and mahi mahi. The waiter was very attentive although there were not many patrons while we were there. French press coffee and the petite crème brulee was the perfect ending. The cost was only a dollar or two more than one of those oft frequented chain restaurants. Will definitely return for dinner and just maybe find that 5 star dinner.

We were looking for a romantic quiet candle lit corner and good food to celebrate 31 years of wedded bliss. We hadn't visited this restaurant in a while and were in for a very pleasant treat. We started with a glass of champaign along with a bottle of Mersault. Our appetizer was lightly breaded fresh okra with a cheese topping. Delicious. The caesar salad and hot fresh bread along with an olive/olive oil spread went well with the Mersault while we waited for our entrees. Our waiter was on the ball and our entrees were quickly served. The quail/duck breast was excellent. I wish I knew how to duplicate the full moist tenderness in quail. The gravy was to die for. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her mahi mahi. We were there on a Friday night and there were plenty of open tables. Considering the excellent food, the wine and the great service, this was a mystery. Folks around Tallahassee need to give this place a try. This is one of Tallahassee's finest restaurants.

Filet was wonderful, waiter very efficient and courteous. Pricey, but well worth it! This is a popular restaurant with the local.

Interesting and sometimes quirky twists on French cuisine await here. The surroundings are kind of fuddy-duddy, but pleasant enough. But the food is really unusual for its kind. For example, how often do you find a duo of lamb chops and quail, or lamb and pork pate with pickled okra? It's well worth the trip to this strip mall for some adventuresome dining.
