Thoroughly enjoyed our evening.Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Food and ambiance were wonderful. Very relaxed; never felt rushed. A wonderful way to sit and reflect on an evening in the CMA galleries.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSix of us who are membersSix of us who are members of a book club had lunch at Provenance. The service was attentive and efficient. It was a good experience. Competent staff, great food. I would recommend it highly. We all had different dishes and everyone was pleased. The trout and the crab and pasta dish got rave reviews.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale Dining/ Updated MuseumWonderful dining accompaniment to the exciting newly renovated Cleveland Art Museum. When the viewable landscaping is completed, this place will be even better.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal, bad table.Everything was great except for one thing. We had one of two tables in which one seat looked at a blank wall. It apeared to be the only two seats in the restaurant without a view. Someone was seated in the other table about half way into our meal. They asked for and got a different table. Unfortunately we did not ask for another table.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDining experienceThe presentation of food was impeccable. The halibut special was delicious. The ambience unbeatable.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI (and many other Clevelanders)I (and many other Clevelanders) waited a long time for this: a high-quality restaurant in the CMA. Provenance was very good but didn't live up to the hype. (Plus I had to wait a month to snag a table for a Friday night.) Nothing about the restaurant suggests you are dining in a museum. (The only art is a dull panoramic photo of the building.) I selected the prix fixe because I wanted the cod. But a salad was not among the first- course choices, so I tried the soup--unmemorable, as was the blackberry pie (which was out of season). The service gets five stars, however. Our server helped us decide on a wine by allowing us to taste both of the chardonnays on the list, a gracious touch that was indeed helpful.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find! Enjoyed theWhat a find! Enjoyed the museum and to have such a nice restaurant made the Cleveland Art museum special. I am coming back soon.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAdd to the "A List"!Wonderful brunch experience.
Exquisite, taste-tantalizing menu with something for everyone. Service was all that a fine dining experience should be - professional, knowledgeable and attentive. Decor melds seamlessly with the visual tone, texture and structure inherent in the old and new architecture of site.
A fabulous addition to the Museum.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI was disappointed by theI was disappointed by the minimal food selections.

The food was very good, the ambiance was moderately quiet, and the setting in the Atrium of the Cleveland Museum of Art was superb. The service was attentive and timely, but the server was unable to answer some basic questions about the meals.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely, lovely spot. VeryLovely, lovely spot. Very good food - small but varied and well-honed menu. Items served hot and fresh. A real oasis! But what really shines is the service. I was in a hurry the day I had lunch there and forgot my credit card. The waitress and manager found my cell phone number, called me in the car on my way out, and then ran through the Museum to greet me at the door with my card since they know I was in a hurry. Can't beat that for service!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMService was attentive withoutService was attentive without being hovering. We faced the window with that killer view of tree tops and The Temple dome in the distance. The trout entree was absolute perfection and it was so easy to have an intelligible conversation here.

Very personable staff - attentive enough but not intrusive.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThree of our party of fourThree of our party of four opted for the braised short rib and spinach curry, which all agreed was wonderful, but I felt I got the best dish, the baked swordfish! Our server, LeeAnn was outstanding. We loved it so much we are dining there again in 3 weeks and have requested LeeAnn as our server.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBecoming RegularsDining for the third time at Provenance and was impressed once again. It's hard to believe that this is a museum restaurant. The mussels with tasso appetizer was delicious and served with wonderfully crusty grilled bread to soak up all the tasty sauce. The braised short rib curry was outstanding, with rich flavors and a healthy portion. The stuffed pork tenedrloin was very good, but seemed a little pedestrian compared to the short ribs.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and atmosphere...greWonderful food and atmosphere...great place to impress out-of-town guests3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was terrificAs always the food was terrific - our reservation had somehow gotten cancelled and the 3 of us were seated anyhow and Open Table took care of it.

On the day we went for lunch, one of the appetizers was borscht
- where have you seen that lately on a Cleveland menu?
Entrees consisted of fish, pasta.meat and salads imaginatively prepared. Service was friendly and attentive!
The view was exceptional ; from our table, on one side you could see across the new atrium, a handsome open space and on the other side, you saw greenery outdoors!
All in all, an exceptional dining experience!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)We will definitely place Provenance on our top five favorite restaurants in Cleveland. The atmosphere is quaint and fresh; scenic outdoor view with its unique window design. Food is creative and nicely presented; portions just right. Our server was attentive and pleasant throughout the evening. Seasonal menu planning is a great reason for us to return every month or two...We truly enjoyed the opportunity to visit the CMA before and after our dining experience.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for dinner w/ orGreat spot for dinner w/ or w/out a museum occasion. Nice space, the view will be stellar once the landscaping outside is sprung!
The trout dish was fresh and flavorful. The lump crab spaghetti with the meyer lemon, scallions and cream sauce was rich, satisfying and so full of crab it was luxurious.
The concert we saw was good and interesting, and the Viva&Gala series is worth a season subscription. You've improved it and the other offerings at the museum with this new restaurant.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service!Notably, our server was perfect. Accessible but not hovering. The food good, pricey (in relation to portion) but good. Ambience is very comfortable.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMSpecial!Beautiful space to enjoy a beautiful dining experience! Great salads, interesting oriental shrimp dish (more than I could finish) with very accommodating staff/kitchen.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
