Latin / Spanish
In Spanish and Latin cultures “Buen Provecho” was a way to wish good eating to family, friends, and neighbors. The ancient phrase means “may this food be good for your health and sit well with you.” It was a cultural way to convey the sincerity of our love through a meal. In that same spirit, Provecho brings a fine dining experience with a unique mixture of exquisite Latin American and Spanish culinary specialties, paired with expertly handcrafted drinks.

Nice evening. Restaurant wasn’t very crowded so noise was not a problem. I’ve always sat outside but it was too cold so this was a new experience dining in. Food was outstanding, very creative. We had 4 in our group. The best way to approach dinner is to order a few dishes at a time and share. Take your time and enjoy. This time our service was good but a notch down from outstanding on previous evenings.

We had the squash soup which is on the winter menu (summer was a corn chowder) and it was very good. We tried the avocado fries, poblano grits, empanadas and queso -all outstanding. Strongly suggest a reservation. Their table layouts handle larger parties well.

I enjoyed my Black & Gold cocktail, the Bonanza cabernet, octopus, corn, beans, and filet was cooked as I requested. I LOVED the presentation of my plantain split and Allison was great. I will ask for her when we return.

This was my first experience at Provecho and I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone in the group felt the same. Food was excellent as well as the service. I would definitely go back. I will recommend this place to everyone.

Food was phenomenal, drinks were perfect, and our server was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt. Perfect spot for brunch on a nice day or a classy dinner and drinks on a nice night.

This is by far one of the best (if not the best) restaurant in NWI. My wife and I highly recommend if you haven't been. The food and presentation is spot on. We felt like we were in the city and a high end place but were in the comfort of our own neighborhood. You will not be disappointed!

This was our second time at this restaurant and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. I like the food, small plates with sharing idea and the margaritas are great. It was quite loud as we were there on a Friday evening and they were quite crowded. It's not cheap but for a special occasion, it's a good choice.

Excellent food! Best steaks we have ever had. Beats some of Chicago’s steaks we have tried. Number one place in Crown Point or Northwest Indiana to eat at.

I grew up in NWI, but I haven’t lived there in a decade or so. Whenever I come back to visit, I always feel like the area lacks good, local restaurants (vs chain restaurants). This restaurant is what I felt like was always missing! We enjoyed our meal/experience from start to finish. We loved all the dishes we ordered (esquites, empanadas, sweet plantains, queso fundido, octopus) and got to enjoy each other’s company without feeling rushed. We were stuffed by the end of the meal but wish we could’ve tried everything! Looks like we’ll have to go back next time we’re in the region!

I've been to this restaurant twice in the last 6 months. In the past this restaurant has impressed me and 1 dish has been better than the last but this time the cerviche and salad were changed because the waitress said that the restaurant makes seasonal and farm to table changes. I have to say thumbs down to the changes which made the dishes much less palatable. My guest and I didn't even want to eat them after the first bite. We told our waitress who just said sorry. I have to say I was disappointed in a restaurant that I usually have a great experience at. Definitely a missed opportunity. I guess this restaurant is hit or miss.

Hi Julie, We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the dishes that you had ordered. We do change the menu on a weekly or bi-weekly basis depending on the availability of the farms we work with and their harvest. We are sorry that you did not enjoy these changes. I will make sure to take that into consideration on this next menu revision. We hope that you join us again so that we can earn your 5 star review. Thank you for your feedback. Kind Regards, Chef Chris

Absolutely amazing. Me and the wife shared a few things. Carnitas, empanadas and grilled octopus. Incredible. Stayed for desert. So good. Washed it all down with a few cocktails called "the shipwreck". A must try, really.... Want the full affect? Ask for Patrick. This kid is very knowledgeable about location and preparation of the whole meal down to the fresh ground coffee.

We love this restaurant! The food is fresh, delicious, and the drinks are unique and very tasty. The presentation of both food and drinks is exceptional. You will not be disappointed! The Carnita platter is a must! There are several guacamole options; all are excellent. Do yourself a favor and try this gem!!

SECOND TIME IN MONTH WE DINED AT PROVECHO. MAKE RESERVATION IF POSSIBLE, BUT WORTH ANY TIME WAITING. NOTHING LIKE IT IN THAT AREA. WAIT STAFF VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND FRIENDLY. NO COMPLAINTS ABOUT ANY FOOD WE ORDERED. WE TRAVEL INTO THAT AREA FOR BUSINESS AND FOUND BY ACCIDENT. CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK NEXT MONTH!!

I cannot believe that this restaurant has been 15 minutes from my house and I just now found out about it! As a Latina-Puertorican I was so impressed. We had the Ceviche - served with fresh tortilla chips. Then empandas, that were so on point. They redefined what an empanada is. We then had the chicken pot with lentels and arroz con gandules. Then added tostones as a side dish. (The only critique I would give ont he tostones is that they were not all double friend as they are traditionally made). However, the homemade mayo that was served with the tostones was super yummy, so it all worked out. If you have not dined here, then you are missing out. Thank you Latin Provecho for adding elegance to our food. We appreciate you! Muchas gracias!

I’ve been a few times. The food is hit or miss. Great concept and ambiance but the prices for what you get is better suited for downtown Chicago. I was able to try the octopus and while it was cooked perfect it fell flat with seasoning and flavor, had they added a pinch of salt I would have taken the dish to where it should be. Ordered the truffle pork belly truffle special, I think it would have been a better presentation if they would have served the pork belly already sliced. It was rather tough to cut. Pablano grits are one of my favorite things they have. Love the empanadas! I’m sure I’ll be back.

Our waitress was wonderful, we sat next to the window in the back facing the square. The only thing I can say that was uncomfortable was the cool air from that window. I loved the chairs, most chairs uncomfortable for me; very comfy ! Food was different, which I like to try. Wanted the Sea Bass but you were out. I would come back and try something different. Thanks for the experience.

Garrick is the best server I’ve had in a long time!! Down to earth, professional, friendly, very knowledgeable, takes great ownership of his tables. I was so excited to find this restaurant in Crown Point. It stands out from everything else available in NWI by a long shot. Pricing is fair and menu is both interesting and executed well. Can’t wait to go back!

My overall thought was the food was a little bland the guacamole was not seasoned well but tolerable. The short rib tamale was a bit tough. The chicken empanda was a unique flavor. However the empanadas were very tasty(tiger shrimp). The drinks were also fantastic.

Food and service was good. First time dining. Had early reservations because they appear to book up fast. Everything was nice with exception of loud obnoxious people at bar. We could not believe they were permitted to carry on the way they did with foul language. Made the evening uncomfortable. Once we were done eating and ready to leave, they turned on music to drown out sound. Disappointing

Took my wife here for the second time, the first time was opening week of the restaurant. We both agreed they are much improved overall in both service and food preparation, flavor, presentation, etc. Great atmosphere, but the space is a little small. It’s a bit pricey, $40/strip steak, $78 for a tomahawk that’s shareable, but definitely a nice place to have dinner on occasion.

Ambiance, cocktails and menus are always amazing. Can’t believe this gem is in NW Indiana, as it feels like you’re in Lincoln Park. I’ve been there for dinner, cocktails and brunch and loved it every time. Can’t wait to check out their patio space when the weather warms up.
