Second time we've enjoyed fantastic meals and service ... and strolling through the Cleveland Art Museum before and after ... it really doesn't get better than this combination unless you can schedule a concert at Severance as well.

 (Cleveland)·Dined 5 days ago

We went for Valentine’s Day, and I cannot overstate what a wonderful experience we had. Our table overlooked sweeping view of the Temple all lit up at night, and the ambiance was intimate and cozy.

We arrived late and were therefore on a time crunch before we headed off to a lecture, but our server Erin managed to get us in and out in time while still making everything feel leisurely and relaxed. Service was attentive but not overbearing, and she made excellent recommendations.

We started with the house made burrata, which was delicious and a great starter portion for two. For mains, I was initially disappointed because none of the offerings seemed particularly creative. That said, I had the salmon, and it was phenomenal. The skin was perfectly crispy while the meat was moist, and it paired beautifully with the potato and yogurt dill sauce. A deceptively simple dish executed to perfection! My husband had the chicken sugo, which he absolutely inhaled.

Although the menu is made up recognizable standard upscale dinner fare, what you order is going to be the best example of whatever it is, with a few interesting twists.

Although there was complimentary champagne for Valentine’s Day, I also had a Winter Pom from their mixed drink menu and was very pleased with the flavors and balance of the drink.

If you’re looking for a romantic dinner spot that has it all - food, drinks, service, and ambiance - this is it!

Disappointing dinner. I really would like to give Provenance a good review simply because it is at the art museum. However, it took an hour to get our food, the server forgot my wine order, brussel sprouts were cold, and neither my husband nor I could eat about a fourth of our $30 steaks because of grizzle, fat and even a bone chip! The bread was lousy too. The Celeriac salad was tasty.

We attended the Jazz Exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art. This restaurant is located in this facility. Wow! What a treat. On Sundays' they have a brunch. I had chicken and pancakes. My wife had the eggs Benedict. The food was outstanding. They also have a great wine list. Not a lot of choices but well rounded. If you want a great day of enjoying art and good food, try it out! They also have a cafe that looks interesting as well. The waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the wine.

We were happy to try this restaurant before viewing the Jazz Age exhibit. We waited quite a few minutes before being greeted and seated. We were given a table in what looked like an overflow room. We walked through the main dining room to reach it. As guests departed the tables were stripped and left bare. Our server was efficient and friendly but pretty busy with several tables. The meal was fine but there was nothing about this that really made it feel like a fine dining experience in our lovely CMA. Will stick to the cafe in the future.

We had a very pleasant lunch at Provenance prior to viewing The Jazz Age exhibition. The menu is small and somewhat limited, but we enjoyed our entrees and wine. The service was good, although there was some confusion at the front desk with those who didn't make reservations being turned away. The space is sparse, but the view of the snow banks outside was pleasant. For everyday occasions, we prefer to eat at the more casual dining venue next door, but Provenance is perfect for a special occasion.

Provenance is a wonderful restaurant with the distinct advantage of being located inside of a world class museum. As a result they are able to deliver delicious food in an intimate and beautiful setting after or before which may choose to stroll through the exceptional galleries and exhibits of the Cleveland Museum of Art!

As always we enjoyed a delicious Spinach Soup with garlic croutons, and a salad with fresh local veggies, grilled chicken and the best Ranch dressing drizzled on top. We sat on the lovely patio with the garden right next to us! It was a perfect spot to catch up with a girl friend. Chef Cathy Pavlos was walking about and visiting with customers. We swapped a few recipe ideas. Always a treat to see her! Cheers, Deirdre

Clever and interesting seasonal fare that is delicious. Had an apple-cheddar galette with sage ice cream, one of the best desserts I've ever had. Nice wine, too. Entrees are a bit skimpy for the price--no complaint about the taste, though.

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 is a great restaurant in the museum. The combo of coming early to see some art and then good eats is nice. Only issue is they need their own exit so they can close off the entrance to the museum and not have to throw every one out by 9 sharp.
