    Another exceptional meal at La Provence. Though we liked many options on the menu, we each had specials that went well with the wine we had brought to this BYOB establishment. For the appetizers, we enjoyed perfectly cooked escargot and a stuffed shrimp dish. The escargot was tender and the shrimp was firm, just the way we like. We both chose the scallops with roasted carrots and garlic mashed potatoes. The scallops were cooked and seasoned just right and not a single grain of sand was found!!! The service was also excellent. This Tuesday night was two nights after mother's day and every table was full. The owner Cindy is a gracious hostess making customers welcome to her divine establishment. Looking forward to our next dinner at what may be the best French restaurant in the Philadelphia region.

    Excellent meal. We were originally seated in the main seating area which was tight and near the kitchen but asked to be moved and wound up in the back room which was roomier and quieter. The food was excellent with enough choices that I had a difficult time choosing. I went with the foie gras app and the rack of lamb for dinner. My wife had a salad and the scallop entree. We split a chocolate mousse for desert. It’s BYOB so don’t forget to bring yours. It’s worthy of a special bottle!

    We had a leisurely and delicious dinner at La Provence. The service was attentive and informative. Our table was in one of the garden rooms and our view was lovely; including the occasional train. We had the oysters, Caesar salad, Dover Sole, pasta with rabbit, profiteroles, and limoncello cake among our group. There were no clean plates!! The noise level was low, despite the number of diners. Merci Beaucoups!!

    I had the seared fish with roasted corn, lump crab and truffle butter. It was delicious. My friend's salmon was somewhat "fishy", and another ordered a steak "medium+" and it came medium rare. Desserts(ricotta cheesecake and a meringue) were delicious.

    Ok experience. Met a friend for dinner. Waiter was very nice but disappeared after he took our order. Literally not to be seen again. We ordered 2 salads and one entree to share since it was 14oz pork chop. Salads were very good but very small/ not sure if they thought we were splitting the salad too - got charged for 2 ($30 total). Very very expensive/ $15 salads $44 entree which they charged another $10 to split. $51 each for no alcohol and 1 entree. $102 for 2 small salads - 1 entree - 2 coffees. That’s crazy.

    Lovely setting for a special meal. Prices are high but that seems to be expected with any French restaurant. Service was outstanding-Le Bec Fin outstanding although this is no Le Bec Fin. Menu was eclectic with interesting presentations. Great reviews for the croquettes and rabbit; good for the onion soup; fair for the corvina which was smothered in creamed corn and a few measly asparagus. The caramel marscapone cheesecake was delicious.

    We have been to several French restaurants and this is one of our favorite. It’s nice having an excellent one so close to home. My favorite is the rabbit which is perfectly cooked and extremely tender. The best part is that this is a BYOB which allows you to bring your favorite special wine.

    La Provence has wonderful food & excellent service. We will definitely come back, but a particular party of four basically screamed throughout our entire visit. The restaurant is charmingly small and intimate, but does not lend itself to boisterous clientele.

    The corn with a Corvina fish was fabulous and helped to support the flavor of the fish, which actually lacked in flavor. It could have used pepper or pepper on the table that we could have added in ourselves all in all a wonderful evening, and I thank you for providing it for us. Our server we think his name was Nate, was extremely attentive and helpful without being overbearing. All in all, as I’ve said, a good experience experience.
