Located across the street from the Art Gallery of Ontario, Provo FoodBar is transitioning! Soon, our menu will be changing. You'll see a shift in our menu that focuses on food inspired by rustic Italian cuisine that those growing up with mama's cooking are familiar with.

Looking for craft beer? We got that too! Click on the menu tab and scroll down to drinks to see who’s currently on our rotating tap selection and to check out of large assortment of craft bottles and cans.  

LET'S Eat Together


A couple rave reviews:

I rarely want to write a review, before I’m done with my meal, and Provo is one of those rare gems. We stumbled upon it quite by accident, after going to the AGO, and what a wonderful accident it was.
The place is exceptionally cozy, and the open space closer to the street is great - you get a patio feel, without being outside (there is a tiny bit of outside seating as well).
I’ve done something odd, and tried their steak (I’m really picky on steak), and this was probably the best value for money steak I’ve ever had (make no mistake, there is better steak to be had elsewhere, but not at this price level). We’ve tried a few appetizers, and a few main dishes (the salmon was also excellent, and the burgers were quite decent - their smelt is to die for).
The beer selection is very appealing, and so even before we paid, we knew we are coming back!

Delicious chicken/waffles and also a salad. Perfect brunch before seeing the museum across the street. Nice, casual atmosphere. Didn’t have time enough to return, but would have!

Been here several times and each time gets better and better.
Never had a problem here, service is always on point and super friendly. Very attentive staff, keep on top of customers.
Drinks are great and the selection is different than most places.
Food is good portion size and so rich in taste and flavour.
Definitely check this place out!

stopped for drinks on our walk to meet friends at Provo. God it was the service better then Jack Astors on University. At Provo they were prompt, likeable and personable. I ended up getting the Ardberg single malt scotch and my spouse got the house red. Both drinks were perfect, reasonably priced and promptly delivered. Drinks took no less then 5 minutes upon entry, and the bar was pretty full. No one was messing around, and the selection was great. I just wish I had more time to try the draft Estrella from Barcelona, what a great beer it is, on tap ever better. Can’t wait to be back again.

Excellent service, delicious food (with generous portions), an eclectic mix of beers on tap and in cans, and an overall great vibe. Highly recommended!
