This was the worst “nice” restaurant I’ve ever been to. The menu suggests this is top of the line dining. It was equally as nice as I would consider Olive Garden. Went for Valentine’s and the Patê was good but the Fois Gras was awful. I figured the entrees would be better. I ordered the Duck Cavetappi and pictured a duck breast on pasta but no. It was ground in to a sauce that was literally had less flavor than hamburger helper. My fiancé ordered the shrimp and grits and the dish was no larger than 3 inches in diameter. It was so small and shallow. You could literally spoon up the oil that was sitting on top of the dish. $150 I’ll never get back.
A very attractive space. Not a large menu, but good food and good value.
We both had the Restaurant Week menu, and it was excellent. We only had about an hour to eat before our show at the Kauffman, and we had plenty of time. They are accustomed to serving a delicious meal quickly when necessary. We like to arrive early and park at the Kauffman with no traffic, then walk to the restaurant. That works out great! Perfect for a Sprint Center pre-show meal too.
The food at Providence was excellent! My wife and I deliberately ordered different items to taste the creative menu we had heard about from Executive Chef Alejandro Diaz. We started with the Kale Salad and Providence Salad both of which were delicious. For our main courses, we ordered the Restaurant Week Flank Steak with crispy potatoes and broccolini and the Pan Seared Campo Lindo Chicken Breast with kettle corn brussel sprouts, savory leek bread pudding, and bourbon jus. While a creative description of food, we trusted the reputation of Alejandro and were delighted with the flavors of both meals. We finished with wonderful desserts including chocolate cake and salted caramel ice cream.
We will definitely return to this restaurant and recommend to all.
Excellent service from staff. Appreciated the complimentary valet parking. Food was awesome! Will definitely go again.
Service was sub-par. We ate there during Restaurant Week and the food was bland.
My friend and I dined there before going to the Kaufman and were quite surprised by the delicious food and great service.
Great service; tasty food in attractive surroundings.
My husband and I have been to Providence several times and always loved it. A friend is visiting from Indiana so we selected Providence to take her to dinner. As usual we were not disappointed. It is Restaurant Week so we chose from that special menu. The flank steak was awesome. Very tender, perfectly prepared, and good size portion. We like the quiet atmosphere so we could catch up during dinner. Service was excellent, and the timing of receiving our courses was perfect. We never felt rushed, which I hate, nor did we feel forgotten. We will be back!
This meal left me pleasantly surprised. When i found out it was a hotel resteraunt, I went in not expecting much. The linguine with poached egg, brussel sprouts, and mushrooms blew me away. The kale salad was a delightful blend of textures, and the butternut squash soup was more savory than what i was expecting. My only negative was the chocolate cake was a little dry, however the pavlova knocked it out of the park. I will be coming back.
Very nice! Only thing is they couldn’t find our reservation but still got us seated. Service was friendly. Food came out quick and very hot. Feta Fritters were awesome!
On 12/31 my husband and our friends were here to dine for my birthday. Our server was a young man who picks up shifts two months out of the year. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks- which were made incorrectly. Our empty salad plates were still on the table when we left- along with our dinner plates of food we didn’t like. Our server was rude and inattentive. We will not be returning. Experienced wait staff is a must!
It was bland, it was an awkward atmosphere, we were rushed through dinner and the place was empty. It was a total bomb for Christmas Dinner. This restaurant doesn’t belong in the Hotel President.
One of the best meals we have had since moving to KC in 2006. Highly recommend.
Appetizer of foie gras was not recognizable as anything I had ever seen. The texture was appallingly gelatinous and the only taste I could discern was something I would describe as "dusky". It was oddly served Boston brown bread.
Second appetizer, Duck fried potatoes were not crisp but had the taste and texture of a baked new potato served with a dipping sauce that consisted of a heavy gravy.
Bison steak with vegetables turned out to be presented as silver dollar sized medallions of dry, over cooked bison randomly (and sparsely) scattered on a plate with vegetables. The vegetables were well prepared but I overheard another diner look at his newly delivered Bison Steak Dinner and also exclaim, "Look at this! I expected a bison steak to be a big piece of meat falling off the plate!"
Only one of 4 diners in our group was pleased with her dinner. She selected the pork chop.
The ambiance of this restaurant was akin to a Denny's without windows. First you are greeted by an inexpensive looking fake wood floor as you march down several steps to the subterranean dining room. There are virtually no softscape features and lighting was dim but cold.
4 dinners 2 appetizers and 4 cocktails totaled $236.00 including tip.
Our server, Abigail, was delightful and the high point of our experience.
Service was slow, our group was a little demanding but felt like we weren’t really welcome by the end.
The food was hot or miss. Couple of the steaks we had to send back. And the shrimp and grits was soupy. Salads were excellent but I wouldn’t go back
We were a group of 5 and everyone was happy with their food and drink. Server was friendly and helpful. Nice place for lunch if you are downtown.
Get your palate ready for some goooood tasting food with the atmosphere to match.
Just a so so meal on thanksgiving...we were traveling. We ate off regular menu. Our waiter was very good and nice. It was just an average meal...wouldnt go back as there is more to choose from. My husband did have some delicious shrimp and grits but the portion was small for the $$.
