Food is always superb at Providence and I feel good supporting the students in the culinary program. This time we ate from the special Friday night menu and all 3 of us were delighted with the meal and at $20 was a great value. We will be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Providence Restaurant! We had the pork chop, which was amazing, especially the corn puree, and we also had the ribs which were wonderful. Our service was first rate -- everyone was friendly and personable --would definitely go back and would definitely suggest to friends!

This was a Mother's day buffet in a room that was much larger that the normal Providence restaurant location in the hotel. I have sciatica, and the seats were significantly worse than the those in the regular room. I was unconformable. We also had a large group next to us, and the room was so lively that we had to talk to each other louder than we normally do. Food preparation and presentation were outstanding as always. I very highly recommend Providence at its regular hotel restaurant location.

Having been there before, I was anxious to support this restaurant again and took important friends from out of town. I was very disappointed and my wife and I were frankly embarrassed that the quality of the food was so poor. Poorly prepared and not tasty at all. Much different from prior experience. Service was slow but then became very slow. Bar service was mediocre and extremely slow. Will not return and will not longer recommend to friends.

Providence Restaurant is a so much more than just a great place to eat. Chef Jeff Bacon provides a top tier menu that will offer something for everyone. The location in the lobby of the Double Tree Hotel has a great modern feel. However, the mission of Providence and the Triad Community Kitchen Culinary Training Program, giving a second chance to many in the community who "are looking to learn new skills and regain their footing after job loss or are experiencing barriers to finding work" is the best reason to try Providence. Cheers!

Best burger in town! And wonderful for special occasions! Providence is the best especially since it is part of Triad Community Kitchen, a culinary program for economically challenged. Do not miss this restaurant and catering also.

Food is excellent. Only reason I rated service less than 5 was they seemed to be a little understaffed. Love the concept of helping and training staff to find jobs. Also liked the fact that you make a contribution to support Food Bank instead of a tip.
Hope more people will try it.

Providence is a fantastic place. Beyond their mission, the servers are eager, and the food is fantastic. I have had 5 meals there and have never had anything less than excellent. Great salads, entrees are wonderful, very fresh and local. Great and reasonably priced wine selection.

The concept behind this restaurant is impressive. It is a community learning center for those with a desire and financial need to gain kitchen training. Upon completion the student is placed in restaurants across the community.

The food is very good and the service even better. Our table had a variety off the menu and everything was very good.

I made reservations for our 32nd Anniversary but had never been to Providence. It was recommended to me by Open Table. We were not disappointed. I had the Osso Bucco and it was the best ever! My husband had the fish, (Wahoo) and it was superb as well. The quality, quantity, service and value of the meals were fantastic and unmatched, anywhere I've been. The concept is unique and there should be more restaurants like this! I highly recommend this Providence Restaurant to everyone! Go and enjoy!!!

After hearing about Providence, I chose to have my birthday dinner there. We are hosting a guest from Dallas in the near future who is addressing the issues of nutrition, diet, and end stage renal disease with an emphasis on ‘food challenged’ patients. In searching for a caterer, the mission of Providence, a 2nd Harvest Food Bank program, fits ideally with our guest’s Message and the food was exceptional! We look forward to working with them next month.

It was Valentine's Day, so the staff was doing best they could with limited seating and amount of reservations (Some people stayed longer than they anticipated). Food was good & the amount was just enough for the fixed pricing unlike some restaurant's that offer the same type of menu for a higher price.

My fiancé and I reserved a table at Providence to celebrate Valentines Day. We were seated at a folding table that seemed to be set up as extra seating to accommodate more customers for the occasion. The table was small and the table legs made sitting uncomfortable. We were seated about 15 minutes before our waitress came to greet us and ask for our drink preferences. After ordering an appetizer and our meals about 30 more minutes went by, when a kitchen staff member came into the dining area with our appetizer wandering around looking for our waitress. She took the appetizer and wandered around with it for a minute herself, before asking us “Did you order this?” After having a very luke -warm appetizer...we waited about an hour and fifteen minutes before asking if there was a problem with our order because of the extended wait. During this time, our waitress never asked to refill our drinks or water once. Our food came shortly after asking about the delay, and our waitress stated that we would be getting a free dessert because of the lengthy wait time. Generally, we don’t order desserts...but, we did because it wasn’t going to cost us anything. Unfortunately...it ended up on our bill anyway...:/

Overall...the food was average at best...the service was terrible...the restaurant was lit far too brightly with no ambiance and the entire meal was overpriced. We won’t be going back.....

The food was spectacular! Wonderful flavors and presentation of the food. Serving size just right, not huge portions that leave you wishing you had not eaten so much. We did not realize the wait staff and servers were part of the culinary training program, and at times pushed them to be more attentive in the timely serving of our food and beverage. Valentines evening was an especially busy time in the restaurant and despite the untimely service we received began to feel sympathy as they struggled to keep up with everyone’s request. Despite the slow service, we truly enjoyed the evening as we shared conversation with friends who shared the evening with us. We would certainly return as the food was just fantastic.

My husband and I recently enjoyed a delicious dinner at Providence. My husband opted for a crawfish prIx fixe dinner, and I chose a boar pappardelle from the menu. We shared his green mussel appetizer. Each of the courses was fresh and offered a melange of flavors.
Our waiter was helpful and engaging which added to the experience.
We will definitely return to this restaurant next time we are in Winston Salem .

Heard about Providence Restaurant's Friday evening Comfort dinners in addition to their regular menu and wanted to check it out. We all had the special 3-course dinner that evening which was Indian cuisine. All three courses were authentic, presented very well and tasted great. Food was flavorful without being too spicy to enjoy comfortably. The experience was definitely a bargain at a fixed price $20 per person. Service was prompt, professional, knowledgeable and courteous. The executive chef came around to visit with diners and explained the meal and this superb culinary training program that's a key program of Second Harvest Food Bank. Great cause. Great experience. This place is a real gem! We'll definitely return often!
