Any word on Provence in Bethesda?

There was a comment or two after the opening. Has anyone else been there yet? I am thinking of it for my husband's birthday in early May but would like a little more feedback. Food? Service? Thanks.

    I don't think they are open yet.

    I think I call every week and every week they say "we are waiting on one more permit, it should be two more weeks."

    Then again, I haven't called yet this week.

      It's like the watched toaster, Pappy. They only opened because you didn't call.

      If you mean Yannick Cam's Bistro Provence, they are open. Opened sometime last week. Early reports are long waits for food (understandable: it is a new restaurant and it is Yannick) and that the food is simple and tasty...I have not been, a friend has and aside from the wait had good things to say.

        Early second-hand reports have been dismal. Unappetizing food. Long waits for food. Uninformed staff.

        Can anyone give a first-hand report?
