Provisions Ratings and Reviews
We had the butternut squash pizza, panko crusted halibut, and Caesar wedge. All we delicious. The drinks list is amazing and I would love to come to just hang at the bar next time. May be too noisy for some, but we really enjoyed ourselves and servers were sweet.
Not a fan of this experience, the first time that i was here was waaaaay better. I had gotten the hakusho (which is not cheap) last time and it was great. Yet somehow my bill came out less than this valentines "special". This time, the apps and the pasta were great. Especially the salad, 10/10 salad; but i got dirty plates that i had to change, and the bread that we ordered didnt come out til i asked. The duck confit was terrible... salty duck, the fennel was a mess. I ordered the steak medium (cause my date likes it that way) and it came out rare. Then the table next to us got their steak and it was noticeably larger than the steak my date got. I ordered another makers on the rock, and it was a very light pour... i get it, its valentines day.. but come on, youre already charging an arm and a leg. Then the ginger snap ice cream desert was crazy overpowering. On a whole nother level of gingersnaps. My date also had a headache and i inquired as to if yall had advil, every kitchen has a first aid kid and youre telling me you dont have some advil? And, even though it wasnt the best experience, i still gave 20%.
Took my girlfriend to Provisions for Valentine's Day. I enjoyed lunch here a few months ago but every course of the Valentine's meal was barely edible. It seemed like they were trying too hard to create completely new tastes and combinations and making them in bulk without taste testing. Underwhelming, especially considering the price. We were really happy with the wine our waiter recommended though.
A good dinning experience overall. Interesting flavors on most dishes. They sent us a pasta dish that we didn't order and it was left for us to try it at no charge. The one we ordered was promptly delivered to our table.
Noise level a bit on the high side but it's a fun place to go with a group.
I haven't been to Provisions for a couple of years and was disappointed. On walking in the dining room, we were greeted by a rank smell. Very unpleasant.
The menu is a jumble of cuisines, meant to be inventive, but lacking in an overall cohesive theme. This was amplified by the timing of our meal--everything was brought to the table too fast and many of the items we ordered didn't work together. A slower pace would have allowed us to taste everything individually and appreciate more.
The server took away my husband's drink before he was finished; grabbed my plate of food and my friend's before we were finished. Not good. Everything was way too rushed.
Provisions came highly recommended by a friend and we will be recommending it as well. Provisions is a great compliment to The Pass with an equally amazing atmosphere and value while having a totally different experience.
My wife and I showed up early to our reservation so that we could have a drink at the bar before hand. The cocktail program is very good and its creativity ties in well with the rest of The Pass & Provisions. We split an order of bread and cheese, cauliflower soup, and butternut squash pizza for dinner. All of the portions were big enough to share and each dish was delicious. We also had another cocktail during dinner.
We will be back and will be suggesting Provisions to others.
Great dining experience from the atmosphere, the vibe, the service and the food and drinks. The menu seems limited but our waiter did a great job of explaining the different items and how best to order for sharing among our group of 4. We had two pasta dishes and one main course shared between 4 of us which was more than enough after having the bread and cheese pairings and a shared pizza. The pasta dishes were outstanding and very, very unique- this is not your typical Italian fare so if you are picky or want the "basics", you will probably not enjoy the available options. However, if you are willing to try new foods and flavors you will love the flavor combos they have put together.
My husband and I have been to this restaurant numerous times. We have noticed a decline in the food quality during the last two years but our last (and it will be the last!) meal at Provisions a few nights ago was terrible! I ordered a veal and squash ragú served over pasta and could not finish it because it was permeated with grease and had an unpleasant flavor. The Caesar salad looks pretty but does not have sufficient dressing so that after the top layer bites you are eating dry lettuce. The menu does not give you enough options to order a well balanced meal. Our server was excellent - she was efficient and friendly without being cloying.
We were there for New Years! We had a lovely time. We like most choices on the menu; dessert was a disappointment. Being 'older,' we could hear which is very important to us. The food was light and small portions which was perfect for us. We would like more festive, but will be back!
what a popular place! we arrived right on time for our 8:15pm reservation and apparently the restaurant was having trouble getting other tables to finish up. We finally got seated around 8:45pm and you could tell they were a little short staffed as our waiter had about 6 tables and one was 12 people or more. this was our first time here so we were not sure what to think about it. we ended up having about 4 waiters - even the chef was helping out. they recognized we had been waiting a while and even gave us a bottle of wine with our short rib - which was amazing. all the food was really great and it was a fun atmosphere. would definitely love to come back and try more pizza, pasta and meats. they handled the craziness of the night well and it was much apprecaited. it was not a cheap meal so the extra effort from the chef and staff really paid off when it came to service.
Service was great, our server was attentive, made good suggestions and never rushed us as we took our time on our selections. The noise level was low, it was easy to carry a conversation with friends across the table. All the food was excellent, would definitely tell friends to check this place out.
We were a party of four celebrating my wife's birthday. It was not crowded (Monday) and the noise level was low enough to carry on normal conversation. The food is eclectic and creative and requires an adventurous guest to fully enjoy the experience. Everyone in our group really enjoyed the food. The service was paced for a relaxed evening of dining. Our waiter even served us a surprise candle-lit tiramisu to help celebrate. We would certainly dine here again.
