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.

Our second time at this place, was just as good this time. Tried a few new items, the "newbie" thought it was great as well. Get multiple small dished for everyone to share. Just make sure you tell the server to space them all out so they don't get cold while you are eating the first dishes.

A great place to sit alfresco on a warm October night. The food was good, a couple of home runs and a few misses. The drinks were awesome. Service was excellent. Prices are a little high for downtown Crown Point IN, but it's definitely raising the bar for establishments in the area. We will be back.

Let’s start with the great service from our server Ashley S. Would go back just because of her smile. Food and drinks were excellent and exciting. This is a Tapas Restaurant so expect to take your time and enjoy the food.
Yes, it is on the pricey side, but the dining experience is worth it. I have read the negative reviews. That’s to bad because l had a great time and will be going back.

The food is always great here. Top 3 restaurant in the region...best restaurant in Crown Point. My only complaint was how long it took to get the small plate items out of the kitchen. The last time we were here, they came out shortly after we ordered. This time it took forever to get our orders. We ordered 4 small plates in total. Items like octopus, empanadas, and tacos should come out very quick but we waited a half hour in between each and the place wasn’t real busy. I highly recommend the octopus. Hopefully the next time I go the kitchen is on their game.

We were totally surprised by this dining experience. The restaurant is beautiful! The food was just amazing- I expected boring Mexican, and what I got was fabulous Spanish and south American flavors. The variety of choices was fantastic. And the service was outstanding- we never needed anything. I can't wait to go back!!!

The food and drinks here are incredible. We went on Saturday afternoon and sat in the bar. There were very few people in the restaurant at this time. Only issue was the kitchen was surprisingly slow at a time when few customers. However, everything is cooked to order, super fresh and delicious. Don’t be in a rush. We will definitely be back.

Food was OK. Portions somewhat small and overpriced for the money, considering they touted the larger sizes as 'sharable'. Surprised to find they did not offer cappuccino or espresso as an after dinner drink. Coffee only.

We were celebrating my husband's birthday and wanted to try something new and different. That certainly was the case here. Very contemporary ambiance, we were seated right by a window which I love. Our waitress was attentive and charming although we did have some trouble hearing her. Although it wasn't crowded, there were some loud people near by. The margaritas were outstanding, we each got a different kind but liked them both very well, however be aware, they are strong. We split two small plates and one large but when we go again, we'll just have small plates, they were perfect for trying different things.

We were here for the first time and enjoyed a number of small plates (salsa roja, guacamole w/lobster, wood-fired mussels, octopus, steak tacos, empanadas). All were delicious! The wine list is unique and pairs well with the food. Justin works in the bar area and is very helpful with food and wine suggestions.

The staff was great, so was the wine selection. Food was ok, but was served on fancy wood planks. Our food shifted and some of our sauces flew off the edge onto the table. Planks were large and made it difficult to fit everything on the table, or for all to reach.

The food was decent and the presentation was amazing. We were seated in the bar area, which had the same noise level as a Motley Crue concert. It probably doesn’t help that the tables are right on top of each other. Not the best place for date night.

Food and service were terrific. Was a bit loud - we'd asked them to turn the music down, which they did, somewhat, but the noise level increased again as more other diners were seated. Good value by Chicago standards - prices are lower than equivalent restaurants in Chicago, but only OK value by Northwest Indiana standards. We were excited to find a restaurant of this quality, doing exciting food, in this area. Love the diversity of cuisines represented.

First time at Provecho. Went there at 4 pm and it was not crowed. Split two items with a friend. We both are vegetarians and the food was great. Had a glass of some Argentinian white wine which was delicious.
Plan on going back to try more. So does my friend.

Having traveled to Brazil, Argentina & Spain we can say that PROVECHO is THE place to find outstanding Latin Cuisine in Northwest Indiana. It is a truly unique dining experience that will “take you away” for an hour or two of dining and libation ecstasy.

We sat in the bar area and it was very loud. Seating was super close together so it’s not a place to have a private conversation.

Service left something to be desired. It was very disappointing. Waited almost 15 minutes before we were greeted by our server. She was very absent during the two hours we were there and it was very difficult to order more food or more drinks. For the price we were paying and the amount of tip she received (we never leave less than 20% - I have been in the service industry for over 10 years) the service should have been on point.

The food, however, was great. The large plates were very large, big enough to share. The cocktails were fantastic and very unique.

We will consider going back for the food but the poor service we received will be a huge deterrent.

Although the food was incredible and so was Justina my amazing server, the visit was eclipsed by Hannah the hostess. It was 4:15, but because I was alone she tried to sit me at the bar. I do not drink, so I said no. This clearly was bothersome to her, and she had to go "check" to see if she could seat me elsewhere, even though there was NO ONE in the second room. She then sat me at a table for two in the middle of an empty room. When I asked for the table by the window, she quickly told me no and that she "had a lot of other reservations that evening." So I sat and stared at the empty table I had asked for through my entire visit. At 4:45 another table arrived and she sat them at the little table in front of me. I was finished before 5:00. Not sure why I got attitude from her, but it made me feel as if I wasn't as valuable as other diners. The other time I dined here they also sat me and my date at the same exact table, and we disliked it then as well. Terrific food, TERRIBLE front of house.
