From the cheese board we started our evening with to the s’more desert complete with graham cracker ice cream and marshmallows, everything we ate was full of flavor, colorful and so so good. We will definitely be back!

When you order a drink like a scotch on the rocks, they charged me $8 for the drink and $1.00 for the rocks! Thought that was kind of bad

We enjoyed dinner before a concert. Received excellent service and wonderful food. The Shrimp and Grits were delicious with just the right amount of spice. The Salmon was cooked perfectly and the candied pecans were a highlight according to my dinner companion.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience! Caution to people with nut allergies- the bread in the basket contains nuts.

This place is located in the Hotel President in Downtown KC so the prices are a little higher but typical for the area. The menu is limited but still has a variety of choices for everyone. We had the Ribeye and the Meatloaf entrees which were delicious along with all the vegetable and potato trimmings. The lamb and kale soup starter was also very good. The traditional cocktails from the Drum Lounge were unique and gave a feel for the history of the place.

Won't be back. Food was OK, nothing special however Dennis our server was great. Major complaint was the $30 it cost to park in the hotel parking garage just for dinner and then I'm charged for ICE in my drink. That's right....$1 for "on the rocks". Charging for Ice, really Providence? Never again, too many other options where they don't stick you with ridiculously high parking charge and where ice is free.

We enjoyed lunch before the Big 12 finals. At times we were the only people eating in the dining area, so rather quiet. The waitress was very attentive (especially since she served only two tables during our lunch). Overall the ambience was okay and the food we order was very good and priced well.

Host and wait staff were nice, bar staff forgot wine until I was half way through my steak. My wife got her drink within mins. Food was on a limited menu due to events going on downtown, but the place wasn't very busy. Dishes we wanted to try we saw online were not offered when we were there. I ordered my Rib-eye steak Medium Rare. It was more than well done. Baked potato looked amazing, did not taste half as good as it looked. Wife ordered pasta and only took 2 or 3 bites. Was far too oily.

We made the mistake of eating there during the Big 12 tournament. Slow service, abbreviated menu, no valet parking was directed to self park for $40. They should have contacted us with how they were handling things during this time. We were not attending the bb games several blocks away!!!

A hidden gem. I just wish I knew that it was attached to the Drum Room. We could have saved a lot of time and GPSing if we had made the connection. Almost missed our reservation.

We choose Providence - New American Kitchen every time we attend a theatre performance at the Music Hall. It is always very good as far as service and quality of food. This time we were disappointed in the food. We don't know if it had to do with all the additional customers due to the basketball games or what, but the quality was not what it usually is. We don't want to complain, just want to give back constructive feedback. We will difinitely be coming back again. 😊

For the price, I was expecting just...more. Not necessarily more food, but more attention to atmosphere, more professionalism (and just...positivity?) with the serving staff. The food was excellent. We experienced some new flavors that were pretty incredible (the salmon was exquisite--the beet hummus was probably the best part of the whole meal--and the pistachio ice cream sandwich was surprisingly good!). Perhaps the restaurant is intended to be experienced as an extension of The Presidential Hotel, which seemed pretty upscale based on our two-minute wait in the lobby while valet brought the car around.

Loud and brightly lit. Drinks took 25 minutes and came only after a reminder, and after first course. Food on salty side, but staff was friendly and place is energetic. More like a bustling college cafeteria than a sleek hotel restaurant.

Dined before the Bob Seger concert! Excellent service. Wonderful cocktail selection. Enjoyed the "Jackie-O," but will need to come back and try more! The meatloaf was ok. Good flavor, but a little dry. Highly recommend the Pear upside down cake for dessert. You won't be disappointed.
