  1. Not even any Yelp reviews as of yet. Apparently an off shoot of Lucca in Irvine.

    1. I haven't been yet, but here's a Q&A with the chef...

        1. re: revets2

          Have been a few times, and have been terribly disappointed. Although it's predecessor Sage was good, but not great, it was at least acceptably decent for a comfortable meal at a neighborhood restaurant. We had great hopes for Provenance, but in 4 or 5 visits, we've never had anything more than a very mediocre meal. As much as it truly saddens me, I cannot recommend this restaurant. There are far better choices in Newport Beach!
