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.

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.

Overall, great experience. Ceviche was excellent! Empanadas were tasty, but the ribeye meat in the empanada was tough. Tables could be bigger accommodate the large sharing plates. We will definitely come back and recommend to others.

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.

Great new place! Nice variety of options, and love the different flavor profiles. Fun crafted cocktails. The avocado fries were delicious, the tamales were very tasty and the queso fundido with chorizo and roasted poblanos was fantastic. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was the churro donut dessert. The presentation was nice, as they shake table side in a brown bag, but there wasn't enough oil on the churros for the brown sugar to stick so they were a bit bland. Wouldn't order those again, but can't wait to go back and try some other things.

Tables in the middle of the dining in the bar don’t offer much privacy. Felt like we were in the way and asked to move constantly being bumped by people walking by and distracted by the noise around us. Food was amazing. Service was good as well.

Took a bit to be acknowledged by our server but service was great thereafter. Tamales and ceviche were excellent. Whole red snapper was disappointing. Not fresh and over cooked. Bar side was very noisy. Will return to try other tapas. Good addition to the Square.

The food was great and our server was amazing she really knew her stuff. Our only criticism is that the shades on the windows still allowed a significant amount of glare of the late afternoon sun to come through the window blinding us slightly. Amazing cocktails. Will be back!

These place far exceeded my expectations for Crown Point. The service was friendly and prompt. The room is not o er crowded. There is s nice patio. I wish it was covered. We would have dined outside. The food was stellar. With our exception, every dish was tasty and delish. The plate size was not too much. I left satiated. We will include this in our regular dining spots.

The food was beautifully displayed/plated, fresh, and surprising.
I loved every bite. The mango cocktail was refreshing and made me feel like I was on vacation.

Guacamole was so creamy, followed by flavorful empanadas with a kick! Shared 2 tamales and a carnitas sips after that and again, loved every bite. Two of us were stuffed off of those items, which felt like a lot of food for the price.

Great place if you love to share! Can’t wait to go back again to try more of their menu items.

I really wanted to like it but the service wasn’t good. We waited over 10 minutes to be greeted by our server and she was very flustered and 18 years old serving in the bar area so that held up our drink orders as somebody else had to bring them. The food came fast. Limited cocktail selection and no sangria. We ended up drinking Coronas in a bottle and thought they’d have more margarita selection and there was only one on the menu.

We won’t be back unless we hear service improves as well as broader cocktail selection.
