A dining room built around a pivotal instrumental element, a mammoth wood- burning oven designed to churn out anything with smoky traces and a pizza-like crust. All urban rusticity, patrons will find themselves in a convivial space where confident food is served in a relaxed atmosphere. Subtle and polished, “Provisions” aims to serve properly sourced ingredients through thoughtful presentation. Whether dining at the bar where expert cocktails and a broad wine list are available to wash down seasonal menu items, or seated in the lush outdoor patio, diners will witness pizzas made with good ingredients married well, roasted meats, and fresh pastas surfacing from a wood fired oven, all cooked in hot fragrant smoke.

The Sunday supper this week was on of the best meals I have had recently. The antipasti was a great selection of superior quality. The salad was simple yet exceptional. The main courses were spot on perfect. All of this followed by a desert that was unique and far exceeded its description.

I intend to make it to Sunday supper a couple times a month.

I made a last minute solo reservation and am so glad I did!! My seat was up at the bar near the kitchen so I could see all the action. The servers were so friendly and helpful in answering questions. Definitely get the ham appetizer and the bread— the best I’ve had in ages. The cresta pasta entree was so good and vegetarian, though it tasted like roasted chicken!!!

It was not horrible, it just was not good. I just didn't think the quality was worth the price. The place is def too loud for intimate dining. But I am not sure that is the goal.

Excellent restaurant. Wasn’t our first choice, so we were shocked by the experience in general. A lovely, fun yet refined dining experience. Our server was such a blast and made our experience. The food as well was incredible. Incredible flavour combinations, done very, very well. Would go back here in a heartbeat!

We love the food and service. However the kitchen closes at 10 pm. This is crazy for a place in the center of Houston. They took a 9:45 reservation and expected us to hurry up and order before the kitchen closed.

The small plates served here are perfect for a post theatre dinner, if only they stayed open a little longer.

Food was good, but service was inconsistent for us and tables near us as well. Server was friendly but seemed overwhelmed, made a few mistakes, and consistently tried to push the most expensive options to us. It was our first time and probably not the best date night option, seemed like a better option for groups in a casual setting.

It was very noisy. Could not even hear the waitress at times. Sometimes it was difficult for me to hear what my wife was saying right across from me. My wife had the red pepper and Italian sausage pasta - it was really good. I had the Crispy Rib - bland and dry and you only get about 1 to 1-1/2 ribs - I know its not about volume it's about the flavors your looking for, but wait there were none. Plus I got a big chunk of not fully cooked batter. I would suggest more of the pickled apples, some salt and more dressing.

I ordered Bluefin Tuna Sausage. The sausage itself was dry, but it was fine if I eat it with sauce.
My partner ordered Green Pea Falafel. The Falafel was crispy on the outside and moist inside. We felt its sauce was too spicy. We will ask to put the sauce on the side, when we order the next time.
The rest of the meal was great.
The service was wonderful as usual.

We’ve eaten here before and had excellent service. However last Saturday, the service was off long wait for drinks, then the wrong drinks were delivered; excessively long wait between drinks and placing our orders. However, overall the evening was enjoyable. Food was great and wine selection was as well. We’ll be back.

Provisions is now one of my top 5 in Houston. Hits on all fronts. The food is on-point and inspired. Some dishes may seem like odd pairings of flavors, but I can assure you they are all well thought out and often spectacular. Comparing notes with some friends who are also fans - this might be the best pizza in Houston. IN particular, the uni pizza. The service is equally fantastic. It's unobtrusive, super helpful and seems like it's easy for them.

Highly recommended.

The food was absolutely phenomenal! We tried so many different dishes, and none of them disappointed! Definitely try the spicy pasta if you're the slightest bit interested in it. The atmosphere is eclectic and trendy. Service was awesome. My only hesitation for rating it 5 stars is the prices are a bit outrageous and overall our meal was the same price as if we would have went to a nice steak house with all the frills. Still delicious though!

The oysters and curry soup were exceptionally good. The pasta with mussels was good. The pizza tasted off - I think it was the mushrooms. Overall the food was good.
Though I expect and look forward to a conversation-filled dining room at Provisions, the experience suffered because of a group of loud, foul mouthed drunks. The wait staff and management should learn to manage those patrons better or should change their menu to suit that sort of clientele.

The service was poor. There were maybe 20 guests total and about 6 servers. It took 20 minutes for us to receive our cocktails. And it was obnoxiously loud. Two tables in front were 6 person party’s literally having their own party. My wife and I came in for a nice night out. Not to a frat house. No one ever ask them to keep the loud swearing and yelling down. The food was so so. I had the ribs and my wife the octopus salad. The ribs were not seasoned and were very dry. And if ribs are dry you shouldn’t be eating them. The octopus was good but could have been grilled a bit more. Needless to say, we won’t be back.

We are in from out of town just for a quick trip. I picked Provisions using the “close your eyes and point” method, and I had no idea about their special Sunday menu until they told me on the phone confirming the reservation. For $27 per person for four courses, I can’t for the life of me understand why the place wasn’t packed. Our food was amazing. The charcuterie plate appetizer was right up our alley, and the simple green salad was delicious because it was perfectly dressed. I had a mackerel entree which wasn’t necessarily a typical order for me, but I only had three choices. I wouldn’t normally order something with fennel, but I really liked it in the dish. Dessert was a delicious doughnut with a citrusy syrup poured over it. I can’t believe what a bargain it was. If I lived in Houston, I’d want to go all the time.

I love the Pass, but Provisions, not so much. Food came out and placed in front of the wrong people, my pizza didn't come out until about 10 minutes later and it was overly spicy and crust was underdone. It was edible, but didn't want to return it because everyone else was almost done with their entrees. Been to the Pass about 8 times and always loved it, probably won't be going back to Provisions again.

Bar and food service were excellent. The food on the other hand was Unexpectedly not good.

Good appetizers. Ham of the day and tuna with lime sorbet were excellent. Crepsa was awful. Pasta in vinegar - this used to be our favorite dish but tonight it was awful. Pizza was not good - crust was limp - the salumi was uninteresting - very little cheese with no smoke flavor. Overall a disappointing food experience.

Yes I would make a recommendation to a friend, however not for brunch. Just not enough food options and it seemed they were either out of specific ingredients or could not accommodate.
