Zagat Survey has selected its 25 “top service restaurants” in the nation - just in time for one of the busiest dining out nights of the year.

Prairie Village’s Café Provence, in The Village shopping center at 3936 W. 69th Terrace, made the list, described as adorable, family-owned, and a hidden monument to flavor and hospitality with a crew that “makes you feel at home.”

“It’s what we have worked very hard at for the last 11 years,” said Patrick Quillec, chef and co-owner of Café Provence. “Every day someone from the family is here – me, my brother, my sister-in-law, my wife, my daughter, my son. We know our people, regulars who come in almost every day or weekly.”

In a recent Zagat survey, 64 percent of responders cited service as their No. 1 complaint when dining out (followed by noise at 19 percent, prices at six percent, food at six percent and parking at three percent). Additionally, about 32 percent of survey respondents said they would chop 10 percent off the tip if they received bad service.

“We all know that good service can make or break a dining experience, so we decided to highlight the restaurants that are getting it right,” said Tiffany Herklots, spokeswoman for Zagat.
