Providence Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We took our family (six adults and 4 children) to Providence for the Thanksgiving Buffet. It was amazing! The food was delicious, the wait staff very attentive and admisphete upscale and festive. Special attention was given to accommodating our grandson with food allergies. The only thing that was a bit bothersome was that they charged $10.00 each for our two toddler (age one and two) grandchildren. We will definately go back and highly recommend it to other families looking for a kid friendly upscale meal for special occasions and holidays with family.
We went to Providence for Thanksgiving dinner. Food was delicious and price was good at $30 for adults and $10 for kids. Problem was the service. The dinner was a buffet so not a lot is expected...we were not greeted by anyone other than the hostess who sat us. Servers were very slow to take plates away so our table was quickly cluttered. Then when they did start taking plates she would have her hand on your plate and leaning over us BEFORE asking if we were done. One time she even placed a dirty plate from another table down on top of a plate that was still being eaten from! The food was removed from the buffet line without alerting anyone in the dining area, offering a "last call" would have been appropriate. We received our bill as everyone was just starting their first plate of food (rude) and it was wrong, there were 4 adults and 2 kids but we were charged for 7 guests. All in all, the food was very good, well seasoned, good traditional selection for a Thanksgiving meal (although no pumpkin pie....really?!?) but the service left a lot to be desired. Disappointing for all the hype of this restaurant. Really wanted to support their cause. With such terrible service not sure I would want to go back for an actual sit down, full service meal.
Great experience at Providence! Every bite was delicious. We shared the salumi & cheese platter, then had the osso buco and harvest salad with salmon as entrees. Everything was beautifully plated and tasted every bit as good as it looked. Our server, Kaje, always approached with a beaming smile. He was delighted to talk about the menu with us. All-around solid experience and we will be back!
We were fortunate to be there for their Octoberfest selections. The beef rouladen was as good as I have ever had. The apple tart was was delicious with a crust that melted in your mouth. The beer flight had great selections. All of the wait staff was very helpful and friendly.
We very much enjoyed this dining experience. The staff was wonderful, the food was excellent and I have already recommended this restaurant to friends. I will recommend to my book club and to members of my church as well as other family members. Will definitely go there again in the near future.
First time at this relatively new restaurant in Winston-Salem. Dinner was outstanding and we were very impressed with the variety on the menu as well as the evening specials. Even though this is part of the newly remodeled Doubletree Hilton, it is impressive as a standalone local restaurant. And, it is part of Second Harvest Food Bank's culinary program, providing experience to new graduates of that program. Jeff Bacon does an award-winning job with the overall program and this "real" restaurant is just a great extension. Winston-Salem locals --try it!
Went with friends from work for lunch on my birthday. The staff was great and the salad bar was fresh and very good. It was very nice. The tables and decor was excellent. Can't believe that I haven't bee here before. And their program with the culinary school at the food bank is very impressive.
We were very happy with the experience. The food was very good and the fried green tomatoes are tied with one other place for the best in town. The wait service was very pleasant and solicitous of a party member with a broken arm. Most dissapointing was the lack of other diners, perhaps resulting from newness or lack of an advertising budget for an apparent semi non-profit venture.
We really hope it succeeds, as north Winston needs good dining, with reasonable prices. Going back soon!
Love this restaurant's concept and mission statement. The food was very good and extremely reasonable. The only down side at all was our (3) courses came out way too fast. A few minutes in between would be welcome to savor each dish and perhaps have time for conversation.
Maybe the reason that our courses were too fast was because the restaurant was very quiet on this particular night.
Always plan on twice the time here. Regardless of learning environment when service industry is not tip based I find the service lags. Overall good service. Waited at stand for 10 minutes. Really disappointed in the flavors of this menu. Fall was good, this was not. We probably won't be back at these price points. I wish I could support this but it's proven too inconsistent for me.
We went for mother's day and the food was really good. We were disappointed that they ran out of some of the items that we were expecting to get and thought that for the price, they should have prepared for the number of patrons that they had coming. Everyone had a reservation so they knew how many people to prepare for and it was very disappointing. It is a great restaurant I just wish they had planned for the crowd better.
First of all, I booked for brunch on Mother's Day, and the only menus listed on-line were for breakfast or lunch. There was no mention of a fixed price Mother's Day Buffet, which I would have avoided due to the cost and having had gastric surgery, which makes buffets a waste of money for me. We arrived 10 minutes before our scheduled seating and no one was at the hostess desk. A hotel employee seemed confused (actually asked a co-worker "What do I do?") Finally someone arrived and told us the buffet was still being set up and we had to wait.
Eventually seated and buffet was ready 15 minutes later. No offer of water, coffee or drinks. Eventually we were told lunch buffet was ready in another room; no one told us there was also a breakfast buffet available in the room where we were seated; we had to figure out there were 2 buffet stations with different items at each on our own.
Food was actually quite tasty and there was a good variety of items, once we figured out the 2 buffet issue.
When check came, waitress charged our party for 5 adult buffets at full price. I asked if there was a price for our 2 children and she said "no". I then had to go find the hostess, who informed me that there WAS a children's price, and she re-did our bill. I could have wasted $30.00 dollars if I had not persisted.
I think this restaurant could be very good, and I like the cause it works toward, but staff needs some serious training in customer service. Simple things like a friendly greeting, an offer of drinks while one has to wait, fully informing customers of the food choices available, knowing the correct charges, and staff not hurrying around so much they nearly knock over the patrons!
Little things could make a huge difference.
Wound up here as travelers to Winston-Salem for Wake Forest Graduation weekend when the town was mobbed. The food was excellent, the service attentive and friendly (if a tiny bit slow), and the atmosphere was most enjoyable. We really had a wonderful dinner for the five of us.
Shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles - two authentic dishes done right. The shrimp were wild-caught and the produce was local. Service was excellent and accomodating. My wife has had lunch there a couple of times and has found it to be reasonably priced and fresh.
We have lived in Winston-Salem since 1985. Providence is one of the three best restaurants we have ever eaten at. The food was outstanding and so was the presentation. The wait staff was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. I have already made another reservation.
This was my first time dining at Providence. The food was wonderful! The drinks were excellent and fairly priced. The service was fantastic!! The icing on the cake was the mission of the restaurant!! They help good people find a career and get back on their feet!!
I highly recommend!! I look forward to my next dining experience there!!
