The food is excellent. It is made to order even in the cafe. This often means a long wait at the cafe at noon hour. It's better to go early or late.

Had a nice lunch while at the art museum. Easy to gather in the atrium and the food choices are nicely varied for all tastes. It is buffet style and expensive, expected considering it is in an art museum.

I recently ate here after an amazing visit to Cleveland Art Museum. There was a ton of choices for a quick meal, but I found the service lackluster. That said it's a good choice within the museum.

We visited the cafe during our first trip to the museum. The limited selections are terrific. You may purchase beer or wine too. We dined in the courtyard atrium. Beautiful. People are friendly. The cafe process is efficient so you are served even when busy.

I try to eat at this restaurant every time I go to the art museum. The food is imaginative and delicious. This time I had the lamb kofta clay bread and my wife had the curried chicken salad, and both were excellent. The service is also friendly. I wish Provenance was open for dinner more often, but the art museum... More

Considering the location of this restaurant, we felt that everything in it was appropriate. Food is art, and the chef is to be complimented many times over for his skill. The Porcini Crusted Trout was in my husband's words "the best fish dish I have ever had". The Lamb Shank was right up there with some of the best dishes... More

Be wary of the sandwich counter. Only chef working there had to run out because something got in her eye, which resulted in the sandwich I waited 20 minutes for being burnt. I then waited ten minutes for my replacement, a small sandwich served burnt and without cheese by someone who usually works a different section.

After visiting the Art Museum, we enjoyed a deliciously prepared luncheon in the Provenance restaurant. The service was very good, but a little pricey.

This restaurant, in the Atrium of there Cleveland Museum of Art is outstanding--a destination even if you don't plan to spend time in the galleries. Although it is not open every day, when it is open they have fresh food, locally sourced, often themed with a current major exhibition. The space is clean and spare, the service a little spotty...

I stopped in on a Wednesday evening after spending a few hours looking at works of art. The restaurant is small, clean and comfortable. The menu is impressive. The staff were quite accommodating. I have an uncommon but severe food allergy. The server checked with the chef and was able to advise me in selecting courses. I had the braised... More
