Provenance Ratings and Reviews
The food is excellent; I have eaten there several times. Excellent selection of beverages at the bar. The service is also excellent every time with our waitress or waiter attentive, but not overly so. Large windows overlook grass and trees at the Cleveland Museum of Art - nice views. We were also fortunate to be able to listen to a live jazz band for an hour just outside the restaurant on our most recent visit. I highly recommend the restaurant.
We were a trio of friends. Long-time friends. It was most enjoyable and relaxing to dine there. We plan to do it again. Our server was unobtrusive and did her job well. Orders were accurate and served in a reasonable time. It was a perfect cap after viewing The Jazz Age--which we all thought astounding and so well organized. Of course, we all shopped--and purchased--at the Museum Store before leaving.
As usual, a fine creative dinner at Provenance at the Cleveland Museum of Art before a concert. Vegetarian options are always intriguing and again were a big success. The spinach, roast carrot, dates and sesame seeds salad was almost a meal in itself and very flavorful. Farro "nicoise" with thin slices of summer squash and potato, and olive tapenade was excellent. My wife was equally pleased with her mushroom soup and crab risotto.
Perhaps 15 tables of which three were occupied. We asked for one of the three window tables and the hostess muttered something about balancing servers. Five minutes later she seated a party there and our table had the same server as us! Handed a limited brunch menu...expected lunch. Crab cake sandwich delicious but served only with a huge mound of fried potatoes.
This restaurant helped me make a number of reservations and gave my own table of seven a wonderful dining experience. The space is open, modern, comfortable and quiet. The wine list is admirable, the food is delicious if not extraordinary, service was excellent, and prices are reasonable.
Portions are generous and service is routinely very good. A lovely place for a white tablecloth lunch on a leisurely day.
Three of us had the Breakfast burger. Cooked the way it was ordered (rare) but really really salty. Way too much seasoning on the burger itself especially when the saltiness of the nduja was added in. Otherwise pretty tasty. The other entree was the crab cake, slaw, & porkbelly sandwich which was also quite salty that day. Still there was a nice Pays d'Oc rose on the menu which brightened things considerably.
After an evening of touring exhibits at CMA, we were looking forward to a wonderful dinner. While the food and win offerings were great, our food arrived cold, my wife had to send hers back, we were not asked if we wanted more wine, there was only 2 pieces of bread in the basket when served, and we were never asked if we wanted to have desert when we were discussing cable TV options. It was a not so great experience when were eating in one of the top museums in the world. Might not make a return trip for a while.
I've been coming here for brunch for special occasions for years and always loved it. However, when I came for Sunday brunch this week, I was very disappointed. There used to be a great chef's table that you could visit before your meal with fresh fruit, salad, granola, pastries, etc. According to our waiter they got rid of that a couple months ago. The entrees didn't live up to expectations, ether. My Caesar salad was literally just some lettuce coated in too much dressing; it didn't come with bread or anything to make it filling, and there was absolutely nothing exceptional about it. I also got two fried eggs on the side, and their consistency was good but they were basically coated in salt. My girlfriend got the corn meal pancake. While the pancake was yummy, there wasn't nearly enough salmon or creme fraiche on it. Neither of us finished our dishes. While we used to leave completely stuffed with delicious entrees and a great chef's table, this time we left disappointed and hungry.
Wonderful place to take friends when visiting the Cleveland Museum of Art. Make sure to make reservations ahead if you have specific times you wish to eat (or if there are special exhibitions on which are popular). Don't be afraid to ask about menu ingredients or adapting dishes. The staff has always been able to accommodate my requests and I've always been able to find something I've been able to eat.
This was my second visit there. Both times service was slow, though slightly improved this time. The first time we waited over 30 minutes for our server to clear/box our food. Both times, the food was good there, but later I did not feel well. Such a lovely place, well reviewed chef, but outcome is disappointing.
The food is excellent and so is the service. Everyone is really friendly. Being in the art museum, it has some extra ambiance, and it's simply a very classy place I'm proud to take my friends to. I've been there many times and have always had a good dining experience.
We were visiting Cleveland to attend a wedding, and were thrilled to visit the Art Museum. The Promenade Restaurant is lovely and pleasant. At first I was concerned because there was nothing vegan on the menu. But the chef created something absolutely delicious for me, and it was also presented beautifully. This made our meal extra special. My husband had the crab cake, which is on the menu, and he loved it. We highly recommend the Promenade.
The one positive things I can say is that the location is great, the restaurant is well decorated, and that our waiter was friendly. Late the night before our brunch, I changed our reservation from 2 to 3 people, which required a time change per Open Table, from the first available at 11AM to 11:15AM. As there are no two-person table in this restaurant, this change obviously meant that the 11AM time was not at the maximum number of guests they can handled. But when we arrived at 11:07AM the next day, and they had just opened and only seated 1 table with 3 guests, we were told to come back in 8 minutes because they were full. It was ludicrous as we were staring at an empty restaurant with no other party waiting to be seated. We were hoping for the menu and food to make up for the meal, but one of us was pescatarian, and the choices were limited; there was meat - esp. pork - in many dishes. Cocktails and coffee were average. The cornmeal pancake was dry and too salty. Disappointing meal all around. I would not come back, and definitely would not recommend the restaurant.
