We have been longtime customers of Bistro Provence - for over 15 years! Theirs is a charming restaurant on the West side of Houston with an intimate setting and great food! They are a family-owned and operated business with hearts of gold. If you love authentic French country cooking you must try them. Some of our favorite dishes are the salade bistro, housemade smoked salmon, stews and rack of lamb. The wine menu is diverse and updated regularly and pairs very well with the food. Their profiteroles are the best in town. Coffee is amazing too. All in all, dinner at Bistro Provence is a foodie’s dream!

Absolutely fantastic French restaurant in Houston, just as good as any cafe in Paris. Ask about the daily specials. Good wine list Very helpful staff.

Neighborhood gem with a warm welcome and delicious food!

This place has some fabulous French food! They also give you complimentary French bread, and seriously it's the best bread in the world. The rack of lamb was perfectly seasoned, and probably my favorite thing on the menu. This restaurant is good for every day eating as well as for special occasions!

This place is very small, not recommended for big group, my sister celebrate her anniversary there with the family, staffs very family, great bread, our steak was tough, little disappointing!!

Worst place ever... rude staff and dissapointing food. Sorry but Le mistral or other real french restaurants are way better than this Bistro wanna be.

Wish more restaurants would be more like the Bistro! The atmosphere is amazing... Food is authentic French cuisine.... Always my number one choice for anything we are celebrating. Very quaint and not a lot of tables. If you are tired of chain places definitely try out the Bistro Provence and get a whole different experience in eating...

I will be perfectly honest, I have been to France several times and this is not like a real French Bistro but somewhat similar. The food is delicious though, maybe not all French but yet still delicious and made fresh. The people are friendly and attentive, the place is small and cozy. I will definitely go back, probably today and will be recommending this place to my friends. This will definitely be one of my go to places when I want to eat fresh home made food, great wine and excellent desserts!

This place is my number one restaurant. Of all restaurants I know I like it most. I always suggests to my friends to go to that place. when I I need a fair supper, this place comes immediately to my mind. excellent and many types of food and a large list of dishes.professional crew, and agreeable spirit. Also, the expence is modest. I suggest this spot with pleasure.

Did really go French here: Had escargots for starter and cassoulet as a main. One of my friends had charcuterie for starter and boeff Bourguignon as main. With a bottle of very reasonably priced red Vacqueyras to go with the food - all was perfect!

I do not come often but each time the food is amazing. I like the consistency of the place for this family own business. Real comfy home made recipe. I definitely recommend this restaurant for an authentic and affordable French experience.

We eat here semi-regularly for date night and I highly recommend it for dates. In fact, I specifically request you do not bring ill-behaved small children with you to spoil everyones evening. It is that sort of place.

Première visite et c'est le bel amour ? As expected, the dishes did justice to the French cuisine tradition: outstanding food and wonderful atmosphere.

As always, this spot is a delight. The food, ambience, and service are always great. We went to the 5pm seating for NYE. It's always a pleasure to visit. I have been to many French restaurants in Texas, But this one reminds me most of our visits to France.

Beautiful, delicious food and a very European ambiance. Recommended!

Not great. The place is quite small but well decorated. I ordered from the list of "specials." Beet salad was good, bread outstanding, however the pork loin with mushroom sauce was dry and tough - very disappointing. Wine list extensive but not much choice for "by the glass drinkers." I would not think that very many coming in for a business lunch would be ordering a bottle. My pinot noir was too dry. Service was excellent. Owner was gracious. Since I was a guest of others I did not express my true feelings about the lunch to her.

Went with my wife for our 12th wedding anniversary. Incredible. We won't be waiting another year to go back.

We arrived 9:39 pm restaurant was closed. Perfect!

Absolutely delightful dining experience! Excellent service, exceptional Parisian cuisine finished with a lemon tart prepared with fruit from owners own garden. We will definitely be back soon!

Giving one star because I have to. I will say the one star goes to the decor and the waitress because her boss was extremely rude. Pasta was under cooked and hard on the goat cheese ravioli. Pork chops were ok at best served with cold mash potatoes. Being dissatisfied with the food made the owner/manger visibly angry taking it out on our waitress instead of coming to the table to ask our concerns. AVOID if you want good French food.

Kevin Lawrence

Wow, what a wonderful experience. While our reservation was misplaced, the very friendly and accommodating owner found us a table. The food was outstanding! Check the website for special wine dinners they offer. The staff and owner are wonderful, and it made us feel like we were back in France.

Hadn’t been in a while but won’t make that mistake again! Food, service, atmosphere all perfect for a night out. Simple quaint elegant. Make it your next date night or evening with friends

A very mediocre french restaurant. Food was without seasoning. Bearnaise sauce did not match well with the rack of lamb.

I was planning on having a rehearsal dinner and welcoming party for out of town quests at Bistro Provence and as the mother of the groom and being out of town made me pretty nervous. It was a big success and was handled without any issues. Food was great and the service could not have been any better. It was not inexpensive to say the least but it was a special occasion for my family.

We were lucky enough to secure a table for the regular set menu with matched wines. The five course menu included a wonderful fish dish, cassoulet and delicious desert.. . There was a lovely French wine with each course, two whites, two reds and then a champagne.. . The highlight of the evening was the host regaling us with tales of the origins of the French food and providing excellent information about the wine.. . This was one of the most fun nights out I’ve had in a long time and thoroughly recommend the experience.

Like a culinary trip to France without needing a passport.

Grumpy had to step in and comment on this place if for no other reason than the French onion soup, while quite good has to be chewed! Yep. Sampled onion soup all over France in the almost three years Grumpy spent in oui - oui land and never experienced that once. Got to have been the type of cheese they float on the top, but the taste was on target.. The place is small and a tad on the crowded side, but it has a nice atmosphere and the service was quite acceptable. The menu was somewhat limited but diverse enough to satisfy most palates. A cautionary word or two: The selections tend toward the expensive side and parking could be a problem during popular dining hours.

Sue Montgomery

Fabulous in every way. Will return on my next visit to Houston, 2020.

We decided to go to Bistro Provence for our 42nd Wedding Anniversary celebration. We’re so glad we did. Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful people and fabulous food. This is a little slice of heaven right here in Houston. Thanks for making our Anniversary something special.
