This was our third visit to Cafe Provençal over the past four year and the food was as good as ever. The menu is somewhat eclectic but firmly based in the French tradition. Service is good and non-obtrusive. The dining room is small and quiet. Prices are comparable to other fine dining restaurants in the area but the food is... More

Had dinner here several times when we stayed at the Wedmore Place, the hotel on the Williamsburg Winery property. Fine Dining, great food and a wonderfully romantic atmosphere. The service is great, very professional. They treat you very well here! We love to come here for a romantic weekend getaway.

I want to first start off my saying that our server was great. I think he name was Kara. But the food was such a total disappointment. No wonder on friday night at peak dinner time there were only 4 tables filled. I went there on a date or I would have complained. I did send my salad back. I... More

My husband and I went there on a Wednesday for my birthday, and it was amzing from the start. Though we were only one of two tables for awhile, the server didn't act like we were an imposition; were treated with every care. The restaurant is part of Williamburg Winery, so I didn't expect to see wine offered from other... More

We purchased an online pkg that included a tour and tasting at the Williamsburg winery and dinner here at Cafe Provencal. The dinner was definitely the highlight and made the entire evening well worth while! The menu was somewhat limited for the evening, but there were plenty of interesting options to choose from. Very unique! I tried the Butternut squash... More

This restaurant got good reviews so we decided to take the plunge at the Williamsburg Winery. The location and decor is charming. The first courses were delightful. The entrees...not so much. Both entrees were way over salted and the pasta was way over seasoned with vinegar. The balance was just not there for either the meat dish or pasta selection.... More

We started with the Cheese Platter which was delicious. I especially... More

We enjoyed our meal and they have a good selection of items. The restaurant is very good, but unfortunately not inexpensive. Such is life if you want the finer things....
