Le Provencal Mamaroneck?

Any reviews on this restaurant. Is it kid friendly? My BIL made ressies there for my MIL's bday and he does not have kids and we do :)

Thanks!

  1. It is a lovely restaurant. Have never had a bad meal there. Once when an entree was delayed, the house bought our drinks as an apology. I would not think of it as a spot for kids, unless they have fairly sophisticated palates. We have taken our teenagers there and they love it, but they love good food and a nice dining experience.

      My BIL said when making the ressie and he mentioned kids the person taking the ressie said there was a kids menu. But, my kids always find something to eat even if just soup or a salad.

      Thanks!

        We've been a couple of times with my son. He's 6 now, so probably 4 and 5. He scarfed down half of my husband's lentil soup appetizer and for his entree enjoyed my steak and my husband's roasted duck with port wine sauce. I don't remember what he had for dessert, but he was pretty happy with that, too. The staff was lovely to him. Note that he knows how to sit and behave in a restaurant. He doesn't wander, he's not noisy and he's reasonably neat. I think it's fine for kids if they have decent restaurant manners and can cope with grown up food. I didn't even know they had a children's menu, so I have no idea what's on it.

        Oh, yes. And my husband and I really like the food, too.

    2. I've been there quite a few times. They've gotten some negative reviews here but I've always enjoyed my visit. Good atmosphere. Good service. Pretty good bistro style dishes. Largest foie gras portions in the area!

        Their onion tart is delish. I can't say I've ever had a bad meal there.

        As marcia2 said, any kids with decent restaurant manners would do fine there.

      2. I can’t say enough about the tastiness and variety of the food at this restaurant. It is a low key gem with a very pleasant and attentive staff. I have never ever been disappointed. As for children, it is quite rare to see them there. Good mannered children can be welcomed anywhere but since this doesn’t seem like a kid’s restaurant, I think diners should take that into consideration.
