In the President Hotel, the Providence is an incredible restaurant. This is not your normal hotel restaurant!!! It’s really great.

If you need a place to eat before an event downtown it serves the purpose.

This was our first time at Providence and we really enjoyed it. Our server Kaylee (sp?) was great. One of us had the soup and pork, the other the kale salad and pasta -- everything was delicious!

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.

Our experience at Providence was amazing! We had tickets to a show at the Music Hall and were looking for a restaurant close by, something different. So glad we did! Our server, Dennis, was attentive and friendly. He asked if we had an event to go to so he could time things and ensure we finished on time. Took stress away knowing he was aware of where we needed to be and when. The food was delicious - I had the Scottish salmon- I highly recommend it; very unique. My mom ordered the fish and chips. Food came out fresh and hot. The menu has something for everyone - if you just want a quick appetizer before a show, they have a nice charcuterie plate, and fresh salads. Entrees range from burgers to salmon to filet mignon. Nice wine and cocktail list. We will definitely be back - this is our new go-to place when we have a show downtown!

Terrible service. The hostess/ waitress was sitting in her office ( we could see her) while we stood at the check in desk waiting to be seated. She didn’t come out until the bar waitress yelled at her. Ordered my filet medium -it came rare and the server never came back to see if it was cooked correctly. Again had to flag her down. This place is overpriced and not worth your time.

I loved the restaurant, including the service, but the menu is very limited which I thought was the only down fall. Also the ranch was very watery. Had a great experience though.

Food is good and variety of items not what you’d expect from a a restaurant associated with a hotel! Good value & drinks. Close to Sprint Center making it convenient for pre concert meals. Very accommodating (we had reservations at a time that worked well to allow us enough time to enjoy our meal) and worked well for us to eat & get to the show on time.

What a wonderful surprise! Although it’s located in a hotel, you wouldn’t really know it. Wonderful and informed server, adequate wine list, impressive bourbon selection, good location within walking distance to everything in the P&L district.

Then there is the food. WOW! I had the salmon, which was perfectly cooked, rested on a wonderful bed of sorghum, parsnips and other fabulous Fall offerings. It tasted just like Fall, my favorite time of year.

My husband had the shrimp and grits. It was delivered in a cast iron bowl overflowing with creole goodness. I don’t like grits, but would have eaten a gallon of these. DELICIOUS!!

We will go back and probably stay at The President so we are close to this heavenly goodness.

Went for a date before a concert. Ordered the ribeye on the server’s recommendation. Ordered it medium rare. Came back so well done it was almost flavorless. Server didn’t have many tables and still only visited table after taking our order when we needed two refills. Was surprised based on the positive recommendations I read. Won’t go back.

We frequently go to this restaurant before attending events at the Sprint Center or The Music Hall. We have even walked over to The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts after dinner here. It is always easy to get a reservation and we have always had a great meal. We have always been able to make it to our events on time or with time to spare due to the good service at Providence - New American Kitchen.

Dennis was welcoming, friendly, fun, and one of the best service providers I have experienced. We told him what we needed and when we needed to leave, and he was simply outstanding.
