Ok, so I've been a little bit harsh on the whole patina group thing. I lived up in LA for a few years and one of my all time favorite restaurants used to be Patina. It used to be this quaint restaurant that was housed in a house-like building and they served really good food. Then Joachim Splichal teamed with some restauranteurs and turned and churned out all these restaurants. It's definitely taken on a more corporate atmosphere and it's lost that quaint appeal.
That being said the food was pretty good at Provence. Not fantastic. There was some creativity, but not exceptional. I had the Brioche French Toast,which was tasty. But it was a little too sweet. The coffee was great however. My friend had the Three egg Omlete, which was nice and fresh.

It's the best place to hang out especially on the weekends with friends. The place is thronged by lots of laid back people and there's a good dance floor that goes off on the weekends in HB. I've been to Hurricanes a dozen times and it's always a great night out. The food is great, the staff is friendly. They have a sports bar, big screen TVs and a nice patio. I would recommend their burgers; they are so great!

If you are looking for elegance and want to have a romantic dinner with Italian Cuisine then you should consider this restaurant. They have excellent pairings with the wine selections.

The food and atmosphere where great. The service was bad. I wish the service measured up to the food. I will not go back to this restaurant again. The dessert menu was not impressive and very limited. I left this restaurant feeling no connection to this place. The staff needs to present an experience to their guests.

My husband took me out for Valentine's day. I expected the wait is longer than usual but not an hour and 45minutes. Valet parking was aweful. They packed too many cars in a small lot that no one can get in or out. The parking took us 15 minutes because we had to wait for valet guys to park our car. What is the point of valet parking then one may wonder. Then The seating was another 45 minute wait. After we were seated the food was another hour wait. How much can a person wait for food? The food wasn't worh the wait. I have tried Chat Noir and Turner's New Zealand. Both of the places were better than Pinot. I can't recommend this restaurant.

Pros: can't think of any

Cons: Parking, service, food

The French eat their steaks with "french fries" which are really called pommes frites in french. That does not cheapen this dish as one reviewer said. That is how the entree is supposed to be served. But, of course, not everyone would know that. Point is, don't make judgments about food that you don't really understand.

Great place to go before the theatre. The service is very promt and the food is good. I love french food, but this food is just okay... Not a huge selection either. Great wine list though.

My boyfriend and I have been to Pinot Provence twice. First, before watching a musical - which was very convinient and our superb waiter made sure all our food was served quickly (even though we were 30 minutes late to our reservation). Patio seating is very pleasant - even in November! Definately try their desserts - the black forest homemade gelato was to die for!

The second time we went was for Valetine's Day - and while I enjoyed the food, beware that the menu is a set menu with not a lot of variety and a bit overpriced. We were also packed into the dining room, our table barely three inches away from the next table.

It's great for a romantic date - it has California rustic charm and you will find a lot of more mature diners if you want to get away from the hollywood type restaurants.

Very romantic and cozy french restuarant.
Nicely seating area for quiet and romantic dining evening.
Food is creative, service is excellence, even the manager walks around asking "Is everything serve good for you?"
It's is expensive, but hey, if you want to impress your date and pamper her, this is the place!!!

I took the family out for my dad's birthday last night. He ordered the Angus Beef steak, cooked medium, and loved it. It was the most expensive entree on the menu @ $33. I got the mussels, which was $17. Everyone loved the mussels and its tasty broth. Other recommended dishes: sea bass, sirloin strips with mushroom, the salads, soup. While everything including the wine list and bread was excellent, we were taken aback by the overpriced tiny portions of the cheese platter and the chocolate souffle dessert. Also the pairing of the Angus steak with French fries cheapened the dish quite a bit and we think the restaurant should reconsider that medley.

The ambience was warm and plush but felt a little stuffy because of the small room size. The service was friendly and quick. Try to avoid the theater crowd between 6-8. Overall, I give it a 4/5.

Although Pinot Provence is set precariously close to a shopping mall, it is still worthy of placement on 5th Ave. Under the bright yellow awnings of the patio, you feel like you have been dropped into France. The food is exquisite, the service divine.
