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.

The salsa (pick) was fantastic as were the smoked oysters. The steak tacos and pork wings were also great. The only negative worth mentioning would be the music. Not sure why some restaurants like to jack up the music to the point where you can’t hear what people are saying to you. You don’t go to a restaurant to listen to music. Other than that, it was a good experience.

We dined in for Valentine’s Day and went with the pre-fixed menu. I started with Guacamole then had tortilla soup and the one pot chicken. To be expected everything was delectable! I had the tres leches for desert it was amazing!! My husband had the fundido, salad and fillet. To top it off he added on the 25oz lobster!

Valentine's Day dinner date for my wife and I. Our second visit since mid-December. Enjoyed the Valentine's Day four course special menu. We rate the food, service and atmosphere highly....now on a short list of our favorite "go to" restaurants in NWI. Definitely worth a visit......

All three tables received there third course (main entrée), my wife and I still at this table did not receive our main entrée. Spoke to a manager, the checked on our meal, a second manager came out and have our meal to a different table. Long story short my wife sat over and hour waiting for our entree on valentine’s Day

I went there expecting to like it. I was blown away. This place is almost out of place where it is located, it is so good. It is a dining experience. You cannot get these drinks anywhere else, and they're paired beautifully to match entree ingredients. There are very few restaurants in the area offering this caliber of a fine dining experience. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for more than the local usual in Latin-based cooking. It was wonderful.

Absolutely outstanding dinner tonight. Lucked into getting seated at the chef’s counter where we got to see every dish prepped and served. Everything we tasted was perfect, and we saw half a dozen more dishes to try next time we come in. Chef Chris and his team are amazing!

I had read the reviews prior to making my reservation because most seemed quite favorable. However, I did experience some of the same issues or have the same concerns as others who gave lower ratings. Service was good but not great. It was a slow night so you would think they would be Johny on the Spot. Not necessarily. However, our server was very knowledgeable regarding all things on the menu. She knew ingredients, prep, overall portion size, and made good recommendations. I would suggest wearing a light jacket/sweater as it is quite chilly inside the restaurant as other reviewers stated too. The decor is nice and lighting is good. However, we chose to sit in the bar area and there seems to be so much wasted empty wall space where you could hang a striking picture or mirrors (or my husband said a TV). Such a nice bar area that could be better utilized. The food was fair, drinks were very good and unique. I ordered the Carnitas after reading reviews and wish I would have taken a picture of what was left on my plate for this review. More than 50% of the pork was fat. I'm not a fat person so it kind of turned me off. I would still recommend Provecho for the overall experience, but not sure I'll be back any time soon.

We love Provecho. Came to celebrate and decided to splurge on the Tomahawk steak. No regrets!! It’s was cooked perfectly and was so delicious. The steak was served over poblano grits that I can’t get off my mind. The tamales never disappoint and the cocktails were amazing, as always. We’re already planning our next visit!!

This is a lovely addition to NWI— delicious, authentic food from a variety of Latin traditions. The cocktails are not to be missed, either- and definitely save room for dessert. The chocolate tres leches cake is a treat. Am already planning my next visit!

The place is great and the food is incredible. What I did notice is that the wait staff while very friendly did seem to linger around the corners of the room congregating with each other and looking at phones. The service wasn’t bad but a little annoying waiting 10 minutes for a drink and 6 minutes for salsa. If it was super busy I would completely understand but at the time the place was only half full. Overall I’d recommend this place again and plan on visiting again.

Went there for brunch on a Sunday. The food was plentiful and delicious. We enjoyed the Mimosa and the Bloody Mary cocktails. We had the guacamole as an appetizer and two empanadas, both were fantastic. Really impressed with the Cuban torta and the steak tacos. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Overall, a wonderful afternoon meal. Highly recommend.

It was our first time there on 12/30/18 the service was horrible. It was for brunch and not very crowded. Our waitress was never around. The bar service was horrible . Waited over 20 min for a mimosa. Every time we asked for another drink it was the same. My husbands drink took even longer because they didn’t know how to make it. Bloody Maria . It was extremely cold. We had to keep coats on our laps. We asked the waitress to check on heat and nothing was done.. so our first experience here was not the best. We have heard such good things.

We were given a gift card to Provecho. Prior to that, we never heard of the place. We absolutely loved everything about this restaurant. At first, we were intimidated by the menu, but our waitress, Amanda, was so great about explaining it to us. Her recommendations were spot-on. From the chicken tamales to the fried plantains....it was an explosion of Latin flavors, the likes of which we have never tasted before. The presentation of the food in the wooden boxes and on the slices of tree trunks was so unique and cool. We weren't sure about the portion sizes as described on the menu, but they proved to be ample. We especially liked the whole 'sharing' thing. My husband has traveled the world and has eaten dinner in some of the most exotic places; ergo, he's hard to please. However, hours later and into the next day, he was still going on and on about what a great meal and nice night we had at Provecho. We will definitely be back, and we will bring our families and friends with us. Please keep up the amazing work!

Recently went with my husband to prevent show. I took him there for his birthday. It was an excellent choice! The menu has a good variety of interesting food. We ordered and shared the octopus ( which I highly recommend ), The three steak taco appetizer, and the fish entrée. We also each ordered a signature drink. They were both delicious! It was a fun environment and experience. We sat near the window which added to the ambience. We are definitely going back again!

It took about five minutes for our waiter to come. It was very noisy and it was hard to hear. I understood that the menu was designed to share between your dinner party, but I did not like the appetizers, soup and meal all coming within minutes of each other.

Date night with my wife. Everything was exceptional! We had the guacamole #1, we tried all four of the tamales, and had a side of the sweet plantains. We finished with the homemade churros dessert. That was more than enough food! We left stuffed! We each had one cocktail, as well. My wife had the black and gold, I had the sunken ship; both tasty and well-presented. Our server was excellent, the hostess was delightful, and we’ll definitely be recommending Provecho to friends. Chicago-style decor, quality, service—and, oh yeah—Chicago-style price. ;)
