    Comments:  My third time at Le Provencal Bistro, but first time not choosing to select one of their many wines by the glass.  The cocktail was perfect, made with lemon, light ice, nice bitters, well-mixed, and balanced alcohol and sweetness.  Well-priced and paired perfectly with the menu.  Only complaint, it can be tough to find a place to park.

    Comments:  The waiter returned from the bar with the cocktail which looked perfect.  But, the top was all alcohol and ice, no taste of fruit or bitters.  I was disappointed, but later as I reached the bottom of the glass I found all the fruit, bitters, and sweetness.  So, either the glass had been sitting or  it was never mixed.  However, I blame myself for not self mixing it further.  No rating here as it may have been just fine if it had been mixed properly.  Wonderful food, well priced, happy to return and try another.
