Welcome to Bleu Provence, French restaurant, where elegance and hospitality are one and the marriage of wine and food is a delight. Jacques and Lysielle Cariot opened Bleu Provence, French restaurant, as a labor of love in 1999 after retiring to Naples, Florida, from Provence, France. They count their patrons more as welcome guests than customers, and you will see that expressed not only in the wine selection and menu, but also in the level of service you will receive at Bleu Provence. The servers are well versed in the menu, and will be happy to discuss selections with you. As well, Jacques will gladly make wine suggestions based upon your meal. He travels to wineries around the world each year and returns with the best wine selection possible and the history of each one to share with interested patrons. The Cave is home to more than 20,000 bottles, representing more than 1700 different wines. They are all beautiful representations of their terroirs, including some brilliant wines that are surprisingly inexpensive.
I consider this to be one of the best restaurants in Naples Florida. Even the good ones can make mistakes though. My wife's salmon dish had way too much salt. The worst part was the salt was even crunchy. It was as if someone had thrown Kosher salt on the dish at the last minute. Not a good experience. Normally this is a 5-star place. This last experience though was a 3-star.
Recently ate there with wife who is French. They could not be nicer or more authentic. Host is son of owners and he's doing just fine. They were running a special of 1/2 off any bottle of wine over $30 and Maitre D gauged us perfectly in helping us choose. Both of our dinners were excellent. Only complaint was that the fois gras portion was skimpy, even when measured against other restaurants that serve same item.
