Pinot Provence In Orange County: Is It One Of The Best?

I've eaten at Pinot Provence two or three times, although not recently. Each meal was exquisite, both in preparation and presentation. I particularly remember a Hudson Valley foie gras appetizer, done with pears, that was unique, and that I'd order again and again, given the opportunity. If I recall correctly, the Provencale style of this Pinot makes the best of in season veggies in every course. I also remember excellent seafood. Setting is very comfortable; not overly elegant, and the service was perfect. I don't think you'd be disappointed with dinner here.
My SO has eaten at Pinot several times and has found it to be excellent. However, he thinks it is very similar to Pascal in Newport Beach. We just ate at Pascal last Friday night (again) and loved it, as usual. It was fabulous. The rabbit is out of this world! Anyway, you can't go wrong with Pinot, but I believe Pascal to be just as good.
