Worst

First, the guacamole is REALLY good and the chips are hot, salty, and delicious. I highly recommend ordering them to-go.

I've been to Provecho many times, their 3/31/2012

I've been to Provecho many times, their food is wonderful, service up until last visit was just ok, but I could ignore that. I was brought up with manners being a huge thing in my household, so in general I try for grace, but this last Friday we stopped in for a going away lunch for a coworker and were treated so badly, I told the waitress ""you could be a little nicer"" apparently those were the wrong words as her rudeness increased leaving me with no choice but to gather my stunned party and leave. We ended up going just down the street to Rosemary's where we were greeted warmly and treated very well through out our visit there. I'm sad I won't eat Provecho's yummy food anymore, but I won't go somewhere that treats their patrons so badly. You would think with so many bad reviews about the service, the owners would get a clue and do something about that! more

I love this place 1/14/2011

The food at Provecho is wonderful, fresh and healthfully prepared. The menu is limited but the selections available are all delicious. The specials are just that special and I look forward to hearing about them, every time. In the winter I like the soups they make which are the best. more

Best Food Ever!! 5/9/2010

I have been eating food for over 51 years and I can honestly say Provecho has the best food I have ever eaten. Everything is made fresh while you wait so it may take a little longer to get your food if they are busy but it is worth the wait. Have some of their outstanding chips and salsa. I know you have to pay extra but you won't find better. If you want free chips, go to Chevys and stop your bitching. The service can be a bit slow at the busy times but the food is worth it. If that is a problem for you, don't go there. This leaves a shorter wait for me. Funny how people who complain about the service keep coming back. Should tell you how good the food is. PS the ""blonde"" is a fiery redhead and not only the owner, she makes the salsa, guac, and hot sauces fresh every morning. She takes pride in her food and if she gets a bit stressed when things are busy, who cares. Pros: Best food you will ever eat Cons: Fresh food and popular makes service a bit slow at times more

Horrible Service 5/1/2010

I've gone more than a few times now, for both lunch and dinner. Each time, I was hoping the service would improve. I'm done though. Is the tall blond woman the owner? If not, I hope the owner sees all of the bad reviews the restaurant is getting specifically about her. If the service was better, this would be my favorite restaurant in town. Bummer. :( more

too good! 4/26/2010

I loved this place from the moment i steeped foot in the first time. the owners are great and remember my name even when i haven been in for months. i love the food its so wonderful. the specials are not necessarily ""discounts"" but more like the flavor of the day/ week, and do not pass those up they are amazing love love love this place! Pros: Great food, and lots of it... cool atmosphere Cons: i eat too much more

Good food yet terrible service 10/6/2009

If u want a togo order, they charge extra and u better phone it in first otherwise you will wait for at least 30 mins for your food! The food is fantastic, just the service needs work! They don't even acknowledge you, say hi we will be right with you, nothing! I never even got thanked!!! more

party of two or pss on you 9/19/2009

Do not attempt to go to this restaurant if you have more than two people or under 21...they will NOT push tables together to accommodate...when asked if they would push tables together they refused...so we left...where upon the waitress remarked ""whatever""...who cares about the ""healthy, delicious food""...rather venture one block north to La Bottega...EXCELLENT SERVICE!!! Pros: nadda Cons: Worst Service in Downtown more

someone needs to GET L A I D. 2/21/2009

On February 21, 2009 at 6 pm, my family and i attempted to visit provecho. Granted we have visited several times before, and the food is delicious, the service is the absolute WORST service we have ever encountered. and my aunt is kind of old! we entered the restaurant (5 of us) and a group of 6 entered after us. they told us it would be a 20 min wait, and there was a big table gettting ready to leave. So, when they left, the man who TOOK OUR NAME tried to sit us at the table. But because the people behind us and the older lady working, THEY were seated BEFORE US. Appearently it made more sense, even though we were there first. they need alll new staff. it was ridicilous and extremely RUDE. Pros: great food. Cons: service needs some service if you know what i mean... more

Provecho...should you bother? 2/21/2009

Provecho has good food and a convenient location. The waitress is the absolute rudest wait person I have ever encountered. I have been in over a half dozen times and she never fails to be snarky and rude. I don't know why the owner doesn't do something about her. I'm starting to tell friends we should not patronize this establishment. Pros: convenient location, good food, good prices Cons: small, wait staff is very rude more

Great food, great service! 10/15/2008

We stumbled upon this place on an evening walk through Uptown Village. The place is small, and the menu it not broad (at least by chain ""Mexican"" standards), but the food was fresh, healthy and wonderfully prepared. The service was prompt, friendly and extremely helpful. I will definitely go back! more

Great, but not ""authentic""... 7/10/2008

Is the food good? Yes. Are the prices good, especially for downtown Vancouver? Absolutely. Was the service prompt and friendly? Very. Is the food ""authentic"" Mexican food? I say not, but that really depends on how we want to define authentic. Are we talking about Northern Mexico, Southern Mexico, or possibly New Mexico? They serve nachos, tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and tostadas. They use a jack & cheddar cheese combo on most of their items. I call it border food. If that's what you're into, you can't go wrong with Provecho. No free chips and salsa, though. You'll have to have the mahi mahi tacos and salad special instead. !Buen provecho! Pros: Good prices, good food Cons: Tiny dining area more

Horrible service experience 3/10/2008

On March 7 about 6:45, we were told that it would be a 20 minute wait for a table for 4, we were willing to sit at 2 tables available for 2, but the owner insisted we had to wait for a table for 4.....and wait outside! When my husband went in to use the restroom, a table had left and he motioned us to come inside but the owner again insisted we had to wait outside until she cleared the table. At that point, we left. Who deserves service like that! We enjoyed the restaurant's menu because it accomodates the vegetarian in our family, but we will not go there again nor will we recommend in the future. more

Yummy Mexican food 2/28/2008

Each time I go I get the Mexican tabouli salad (mainly cause it's the only vegan item on menu). It's really yummy. I sometimes get the chips and salsa, which is homemade on site. And the chips are made fresh daily. I've taken my mom and she has enjoyed her dinner. I've always had great service. Pros: very inexpensive, great food, good service Cons: small restaurant more

Best Mexican Food Around 2/27/2008

This place is the freshest, best Mexican food I've had. The menu is simple, but reliably good. The wait staff is friendly and the ambiance is calming. The space is small, but cozy. Give it a try! Pros: Fresh ingredients, inexpensive food Cons: none I can think of more

The UN really should visit Provecho for human rights abuses 10/29/2007

The food is good and it looks clean; however, going to this restaurant is not worth the trouble. The wait staff and the owner are all very rude. They have all kinds of little stupid rules and will snap at you if you ""break"" one of their many unwritten rules. I was dining with a friend and he was folding the paper menu. The owner snapped at him for it. Vancouver is a small town with few dining out choices. A reasonable person would think that a restaurant owner would try to be nice and polite, not so at this place. Just keep going by this place and go to La Botegga instead, spare yourself the psychological abuse. Pros: good food, clean Cons: really bad service more
