Provenance Ratings and Reviews
It was our first dining experience at Provenance for a Mother's Day dinner. It was an exciting ambience. However, the meals took longer than expected to receive after we ordered. The "flat iron steaks" were cold when received at our table. They had to be returned only to be brought back to the table, exactly the same. Quite disappointing.
On the positive side, our waitress was very friendly. My grandson ordered a pizza with pepperoni that was very good.
All in all, a rather spoiling experience for $280.00.
I was with the table of donors
Terrible service… On the important night of the Alex Katz lecture..... there should've been more staff !
We arrived at 5:30 PM and barely had dinner by 6:40 PM
Even though we let our waitress know that we had to go to the lecture at 7 PM they brought the food out at 6:40 and we had been there for more than an hour
We asked for bread three times before it finally arrived ... waitress acted quite put off that we would even ask
And then later The waitress never asked if we were members ...which was quite obvious... and brought the bill without any discount . Then my host who had to wait even longer for it to be changed was late for the lecture
Food portions were so small that my friend had to order more food after the entrée came
And she is not a big woman.
The food was very good...once finally received
The food itself was quite good, but the pre-dinner time at the bar is what made our evening. The special cocktails were well balanced and original (and their names had hidden meanings which we enjoyed deciding). The barperson was engaging and charming -- all 3 of us felt like we were back in NYC.
This was a nice restaurant. Tthe menu was unusual with lots of different flavors. I chose something highly recommended by the server and really didn't care for it to much. My guest felt the same way. I was pretty surprised to find out on that my parking bill was $11 for lunch. We didn't stay very long. That on top of the cost of the restaurant was just too over-the-top for me.
First of all, Provenance does NOT participate in Restaurant Week! They have one on-going prix fixe option loosely related to a current exhibit for $44. That's a far cry from offering 3 options for $33 that all of the other participating restaurants agree to. But after getting over that terrible disappointment - we made a reservation specifically to enjoy the Restaurant Week offerings - we had a wonderful meal. None of the 4 of us opted for the prix fixe. The roasted carrots and the spinach & roasted squash salads were highlights of the meal. The flat iron steak was delightful. We will return again sometime but we know now not to waste an evening of Restaurant Week.
Provenance is our new University Circle favorite. The service was great, food delicious and novel and atmosphere inside the Museum of Art can't be beat.
They were out of several menu items which was disappointing, but the alternatives were delicious. Our table had the cod, steak and duck, which were all equally good, although the risotto served with the duck was a table favorite.
We have eaten here many times, and always have had great service and great food. The waitress on our recent visit was not very attentive and seemed to disappear for long periods of time. We informed the hostess when she seated us that we were going to a show, and we also informed our waitress of the show time. Our reservation was for 5:30, so it wasn't busy, but we were still 15 minutes late for a 6:45 show right there at the museum.
Not sure if our waitress was new or having a bad night (which was just getting started!), but we'll definitely be back. The food was great as always!
The ambiance was nice. The food was creative and taseful. The decor was modern. The atmosphere was pleasant. The seating was comfortable. The people were pleasant. The bar was open. There was a nice selection of handmade drinks with fresh ingredients. Local ingredients were used in the food and drink preparation. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.
This is located inside the Cleveland Art Museum. It's small and off the radar. I'm so glad we found it! The atmosphere is quiet and romantic, the staff is highly professional, and the food is exceptional! The drinks have an interesting twist on them that our group enjoyed. It's just another reason for Cleveland to be celebrated as a great food city.
We went there twice on the same weekend for a couple of special occasions. On Friday the service was quite poor, the waitress could not pronounce several of the menu items including espresso. At the end, she did not ask us if we were members, so we missed out on some savings which is a great perk about being a member.
On Sunday the service was exceptional. Although there was a rather unpleasant dark curly hair in my food a different waitress was very quick remove my plate and place a new order.
They probably should train their staff such that there is more consistency.
For the past 3 years, I and a small group of friends have visited Provenance in January for Sunday brunch.
This year we were disappointed by the meager selection on the buffet table compared to past years. The menu selections were good and we love the museum connection, but the change was enough to convince us to visit another restaurant for our next brunch.
I love this restaurant and really wish they would serve a vegetarian offering that was not loaded with cheese or high in calories. The menu is fun and creative but really short when it comes to vegetarian options that are healthy. Service was excellent and the chef was willing to accommodate my request for a vegetable omelette yet there wee very few vegetables available--red and green peppers. Oh, for a little kale or zucchini or tomato. And, my guest had a great meal. So, in spite of my concerns, I will continue to go back again and again.
Service was outstanding only outdone by its setting, can't beat being surrounded by priceless art! My wife loved NY strip with cauliflower mash, dughters said the duck was cooked perfect but didn't love the sweetness of the risotto. I enjoyed but will struggle to remember the prefixed menu with oysters and short rib. The tiramasu dessert stole the show with the espresso poured over chairside.
The fresh, seasonal food and creative dishes are outstanding. As a member of the Museum who gets a discount, I find the value very good. The downer had little to do with the restaurant itself - at the next table was a particularly loud woman who was discussing topics (gore, crime) not conducive to a good dining experience (she even said, "I probably shouldn't talk about this during dinner"). We have had good dining experiences here before and will be back!
