The strong point of the restaurant is the location and the local ingredients, fish and seafood, fresh and very good quality food. We were please with the food except the frog legs and escargots but the table they gave us was not a good choice, in a booth in the far corner between 2 large groups of noisy anniversaries, impossible to talk. I invited my son and a 96 old aunt and we were not please with the seating. I made the reservation on line and there is no space to request an outdoor table for 3. If I recommend to a friend it will be under conditions.

Best prawns I've ever tasted. Also had a 10 year old with us who was able to find something to eat. Incredibly genuine waiters. Waiting time for food was longer than expected, although the restaurant was full and we were attended to very well during that time. 9.5/10 will definitely visit again. Beautiful marina side location. Excellent mocktails!

Food and service very good. Live jazz band is a bonus. My only gripe is the price of the alcohol. Much too high, would, didn’t stay longer to drink because of that.

I went there with my mother and two of her friends. We loved the jazz band playing there that night. The food was not exceptionally special. I do appreciate that the kitchen was very helpful in preparing a special diet for my mom's friend who can't take any salt in her food. One thing I feel they need to improve is the problems of food flies circling around the tables which is pretty annoying.

The service continues to impress and the weekly jazz nights are a really nice addition!
It is great that the windows open out onto the patio making the indoors appear almost
outdoors.
The wine bar is lively and we love the fact the there are so many wines on tap and that
the varieties keep changing.
We live in the "hood" and will be back!

Provence is an very comfortable place to enjoy a good meal with family and friends. Not sure it is a Restuarent one would bring children under 10 years old though. Service is great. All staff members are friendly but not intrusive. A good view of the marina. Good ingredients. Portion is a bit too generous for me personally. One is well advised to share appetizer in order to leave room for dessert. All in all, it was a very pleasant dining experience.

Excellent restaurant for both food and service. There was a table of screaming kids at a nearby table and the general noise level throughout the restaurant was through the roof which definitely spoiled the ambience.

I have eaten quite often at the Provence Marinaside since it first opened. The restaurant has changed from time to time, and so has the ambience, the menu and the quality of service and food. This recent meal definitely caught a welcome upswing; everything from the greeting to the presentation of the bill was top notch. Service was excellent. Each of the four of us had different starters and mains, and everyone was very pleased with their food. Pacing of food preparation and serving was spot on. The bill came promptly but not too soon. I have been mostly dining elsewhere as of late, but will based on this experience, make sure I don't let much time pass before returning to Provence.

What a lucky find! We were staying up the street at Opus Hotel and found this restaurant on Open Table. I'm so glad we went! The drinks were great, the food was delicious and service was really friendly! We sat in the dining room but the patio doors were open and the heat lamps were on so it was the perfect atmosphere. I highly recommend this spot!

First time going to this restaurant, service was ok but could do much better at least pay attention to take the order. As they brought so many different things which our party didn’t order. Food-wise, I would say pretty good and their daily dessert (tiramisu) and chocolate mousse were absolutely delicious and tasty. 👍🏻
Suggestion: If you have a party and you like round table, please request prior as I only see one round table in the dining section.

We travel quite a bit and this restaurant exceeded our expectations from the reviews we read! Loved the ambiance and the food was superb! Seafood was FRESH...especially the Prawns! And the pasta outstanding with unusual flavors! The Caeser salad was exceptional, but the chocolate dessert was divine. We debated whether to book another night there, but we had to experience the other cuisines in the city. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Vancouver!

My dining partner and I were impressed with the welcoming reception we received the minute we stepped in the door. Our server, Kaya, was attentive even with a full section of diners and enthusiastic in her descriptions of the menu items. The food was delicious and Kaya’s wine recommendation was spot on. It was the perfect start to a weekend getaway in Vancouver. We were thrilled with Provence and returned to the restaurant Sunday morning for a farewell brunch before heading to the airport.
