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.

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!!

The atmosphere is great to hang out and socialize, but the food and cocktail menus are somewhat basic and slightly uninspiring.

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.

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!

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.

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!!

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.
