Provenance was a revelation to me. Mostly because I had never been there.
Last Thursday, I went after an early afternoon appointment, arriving at about 3:15 p.m., just in time for the start of their Happy Hour. While I waited for a friend to arrive, I ordered the spot-on pork potstickers, and the pesto, bacon and feta cheese French fries. The potstickers should not be missed for as long as they have them, if you like crispy, succulent, and perfectly non-greasy ones. (I do!) My one & only criticism about the fries was they struck me as ascetically dry, perhaps the chef abhors greasy food? This is not a problem, by any means, in my book. However, I also missed a pinch of salt, but the longer I kept eating the fries, the less I missed the salt b/c the pesto, bacon and feta were right there to help me w/ my gustatory needs. I also tried a fabulous butter lettuce salad w/ a raspberry vinaigrette, crispy, blanched, sliced almonds, matchsticks of green apple (plenty!), and surely other ingredients I can't remember. But who cares, when all of the prior ingredients were there and exquisitely good.
As for drinks, well...Grant (aka Jesus w/ a 'Hay'), is clearly capable of preparing almost anything your heart & brain desires, but why bother when they have mixed drink specials to try which are perfectly conjured up & magically recreated before your very eyes, if you are wise enough to sit at the bar. I had something wonderfully refreshing and summery involving huckleberries, a flavored vodka, mint, and a pipette of crème de cassis liqueur. It was delicious AND fun to drink. Go to Provenance!

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful adventure, sight unseen. We were looking for a new place to try and read good reviews about Provenance. The food was wonderful. The service was incredibly personable and attentive. The location on the first floor of a residential building adjacent to a pool and community park was a bit of a surprise, but we really enjoyed the outdoor dining experience and the casual, comfortable, neighborhood feel of the place. Really wonderful.

Great local restaurant, our 1st time however will not be our last. Small operation which means excellent food as all of our dishes appeared to be freshly made. Salads are great, crab cakes really good and same with the jambalaya as it seemed made to order and our waiter confirmed. Salmon with risotto. My wife likes her fish on the rare side and they did it right and many do not with fish. We have a new downtown spot that we will be back at. Nice selection of beer and wine as well as mixed cocktails. There prices are incredibly reasonable for what they serve.

Great service and menu selection. Small space that can get loud. If you can reserve the wine room, do. It's a private room with a 6 top where you can close the door.

We made a reservation for the Monday holiday (President's day), and when we arrived to the restaurant, they had closed for the day. If they expect business moving forward, they should make sure to communicate closures to people with exsiting reservations. We were very excited to try this place for the first time and now we will not be back.

Waiter was forced to say four times “Sorry ‘bout that”; didn’t know if they still had two Items on the menu; Caesar salad had brown throughout. Overall, it is just a kitchen and bar...and the ambience carried that well.

This was a great choice for a casual early dinner before an event at Golden One Center. Casual atmosphere, affordable menu, reasonably priced wine and beer, ample on-street parking (and an adjoining parking garage) with a short walk to Golden One. Note that it is a little tricky to find, as it is located in the within the Capitol Towers complex and there is some construction going on with fencing that blocks access from 5th street, so best to enter via the pedestrian path from 7th Street.

Not a top pick for sure. Very limited menu, and we both ordered dessert, then waiter came back and said they didn't have either one, and it was only 7PM.

Location and adjacent public parking was the reason we selected this restaurant (we were going to live concert at the Golden 1 Center), and our preferred restaurants were already booked out for the reservation time we needed. The ambiance is very casual and the food was mediocre. Would not dine here again unless there were no other viable options.
