Weird Waiter at Provence

First time to Provence... I was there for a birthday dinner. For most of the time, we were the only people in the place, which doesn't give you the most festive atmosphere.

The waiter was not French. He was either very strange or 'altered' in some way. Sort of felt like the waiter in The Party, if you've seen that movie. He was sort of swaying... I thought he was going to fall into our table at points.

The food was pretty good, but I really couldn't stand the atmosphere. It was much too bright and empty. I felt like I was eating in a crab shack in Cape Cod, not in a French bistro. How about dimming the lights and firing up some candles next time. Like I said, the artichoke apetizer was good. The steak was fine, but I hate those matchstick style french fries. If you're going to chop them that finely, at least give me a spoon.

Creme brulee disappointed in a big way. The inside was much too thin and the crust didn't take anything to get through.

I don't think I would go back. Pastis is much better and has a great atmosphere for the same price.
