Brasserie Provence Ratings and Reviews

My friend and I will definitely return as we were very pleased with the restaurant. The portions were really too large, tho as we could not eat everything that was on the plate. I plan to return with my husband and other friends. A real keeper!
This is one of our regular dining spots. We dine early - 6ish- and can always get in, have a perfect meal, great service, nice wine. The owner is very helpful with wine selection and he has trained his servers to be knowledgeable and polite.

I love this restaurant because it has the traditional French foods one expects to see on a French menu, but it also has provençal specialities which are a rarity to find in the USA. The wine list also features wine common to Provence. It is a bit more reasonably priced than most French restaurants. I highly recommend it.

Brasserie Provence is always superb. The service is impeccable, wine service is excellent and the food sends your palate directly to France. I've had onion soup all over the US and in France and this is THE BEST I've eaten. I plan to return for lunch regularly just for the onion soup! The owner's personal touch at our table heightened an already four star meal. C'est magnifique!

We were there for the Mother's Day brunch. The host barely spoke to us when we arrived and waiter was not attentive. When he came to the table he seemed very stressed. We had to wait a long time to place our order and we received our appetizer before getting our drinks. We had to ask a different waitress to refill our water. The portions were very small for the price. We dined there one other time for dinner and had a more positive experience. Mother's Day brunch was a disappointment.
Provence could have been perfect
Keep in mind that this was Mother's Day brunch, so you can expect a little delay or minor hiccup. Our service got off to a slow start but proceeded to improved. Those who ordered the chicken fricassee raved about the taste. Two of us ordered Croque Madame and I was really anticipating a decadent lunch complete with the creamy, cheesy sauce and topped with a perfectly cooked egg. There was no sauce, plus the yolk of the egg was fully cooked - that is what helps make the sauce so I disappointed. I did not send it back because I wanted the four of us to eat together. My guess is that they anticipated a busy day and pre-cooked the eggs. Basically, I had an open face ham and cheese sandwich.
Went for Mother's Day brunch.
Few restaurants are capable of providing both high quality food and service on special holidays. We went for both Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, and got both. This restaurant is very well run and the prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. An unreserved recommendation.

Was a wonderful quiet evening after going to the Derby.
Derby special. 3rd Place
The special Derby and Oaks limited menu seemed to be well thought out. Wine list is a treat. Appetizers and salads were well prepared and tasty. Unfortunately, the sea bass entree was translucent and cold in the center when served. We pointed this out to our waitress, and she immediately took it back to the kitchen. When she returned with the serving, it was further cooked, but still not enough. Possibly it was just not a better cut, but was still tough and cool. The waitress again apologized, and offered my wife another entree of her choice. At this point my wife did not want to wait any longer, and chose to eat her side dishes instead. Desserts were delicious. This was not our first visit, and we returned because of a prior positive experience. However, at $95.00 per plate, I do expect better results. Our bill with wine and tip was $250.00. As we were offered no compensation for the uneatable entree, we will not return.
Overall great food.
Service was good and the food presentation excellent. Wine not available that was ordered but on the list? Nice atmosphere.. Will visit again
Bien but limited
Very good French cuisine if a somewhat limited menu.
Provence always delivers!
Provence always delivers great food, great service, and great value. The owner always visits our table and the service is spot-on! Provence has the best French Onion Soup anywhere and the pork-chop dinner is awesome. However, most of the time, I'm drawn to the Steak-frites which is always cooked perfectly and never disappoints. Also, Provence is clearly the best food/value for lunch in all of Louisville!
Consistently good food and service.
We have brought out of town guests here; we have celebrated birthdays here; and most recently I had lunch here with a friend. I've tried many of the items on the menu. There is a "prix fixe" option both for lunch and dinner which I have enjoyed. We also went to a special wine pairing dinner. Brasserie Provence offers other special occasion meals, such as on Mother's Day, which would be a nice option for many.
Best Cassoulet Ever
This restaurant has the best cassoulet I have ever have had. Also their coco que van is excellent.
Good portions for the price!
Lovely setting and interesting menu! Service was efficient and hospitable! Tess knew her food well! Quiet atmosphere for my 95 yr old mom!

Great dinning experience!
This was one of many wine tasting dinners that we have attended at the Provence. As always the food is fantastic, the service is excellent and the pairings of the wines has always been superb! One can not ask for a better evening!

Great place for a business meeting at lunchtime.
We immensely enjoyed our Easter visit. We both ordered lamb medium-rare; one of my two pieces was as ordered; however, the other chop was medium-well. All I expected was a replacement of the overdone chop, but Brasserie generously gave us an entire second order of this entree. This is clearly not only a good business decision but also a strong inducement for our repeating a visit.

Great! Truly French, but we like oak in the Chardonnay 😘
My Birthday is St. Patrick's Day so we came there for dinner. I wanted to come back because the first time I had a medical emergency and left by ambulance. I was so impressed when we came back. The owner actually remembered me and asked how I was and expressed his pleasure that we came back and that I was feeling better. He also wished me A Happy Birthday. The waiter and other staff were excellent. The food was delicious. I will come back again and again.
Perfection is the only word suitable to describe our dining experience. This was my third visit to Brassiere Provence and the quality of the food, ambiance & service has been consistently excellent. I highly recommend the mussels! I should say I am not related to or friends with any one associated with the restaurant. My delight is authentic. My friends agreed.

Classic French. The bouillabaisse needs a little more seasoning.
Our latest experience at Brasserie Provence was a special wine dinner. There were four boutique vintages paired with some fabulous food. We were seated at a table with two other couples who we had never met, and had a delightful time together. We will probably ask these same people to join us for another dinner there sometime soon. This was a fairly large gathering - about 80 people which shows that Guy's success in offering these wine dinners is paying off. Our team of servers were right on point and we wanted for nothing. Guy Genoud always makes you fell special, and this night was no exception.
Excellent service and food
Excellent service and food. Love the atmosphere and docor. Tables spread out where you have privacy. Wife had the pork chop and I had the trout, both of which were outstanding. Not in a trendy area but it's a gem. We will be back.
Family Orienitied; not for romantic intimate dinnr
Food excellent; atmosphere a mix of Applebee's noise and children roaming around tables totally spoiled experience. Facility has layout for family and intimate sides yet mixed parties and tried to offset with loud music. Too bad because menu/food was excellent. Will look for more favorable reviews before returning (Bill+tip was $140 not what I will spend again for Chucky Cheese atmosphere).

Very limited. Beautiful dessert - best part of the meal.
Food was good
The food and service were excellent. It took an hour to get our food after ordering. There were only 4 of us,so not a big order. Other than that, it was a great evening !
The manager (maybe the owner also)
The manager was so friendly and checked on us. He told us about the wine tasting they have weekly and the happy hours. Super personable and kept saying my name. I will come back just to hang out with him. 😉
