The food was wonderful, as usual. Service was not up to par.
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!
Easter Brunch Buffet was superb!
First time visit and it won't be our last, great food and service, highly recommend.
Very good food with an excellent cause. The service was outstanding.
There were 10 of us celebrating a co-worker anniversary, so we took over the beautiful community table. The food was fabulous. We'll all be going back again!
I had the chicken and waffles entree and it was great along with collards. The local JoLo wine was a great compliment to the meal. Great waiter!
This was our third time at the restaurant. We love the coziness and ambiance. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The food is fresh and unique. Lots of parking and easy to get to!
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.
It was fantastic again, we just ate TOO much! :-)
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!!!
I enjoyed my meal very much. My husband’s entree was a little disappointing and overpriced. I would go again but ask more questions about how the food is prepared before ordering.
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 a very busy night for them. They did well for what they had going on. Salad was a little disappointing but my main dish and dessert made up for it.
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.
What took us so long to go? Now it's one of our go-to favorites!
The food and service were excellent! Will definitely return.
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 .
Excellent food and service. Definitely worth going.
Great food, great atmosphere, and friendly staff. Will definitely be back and I love that all tips are actually donations for food bank.
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!
Hidden gem for a worthy cause! Food was delicious with creative dishes. Service was understated and friendly. Instead of tip, you make a charitable donation. Highly recommend you support this very unique and attractive restaurant.
Fantastic food ans service. Local ingredients. We'll go back!!
My group was celebrating our Christmas gathering. Food was great; service was superb!
Great food, divine dessert, noble cause.
Great Lunch Spot, you can order from the full menu or choose a soup and salad buffet. Amazing food, inspiring mission.
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.
We ate at Providence at the Thanksgiving buffet. Couldn't have been more pleased. Food, Service and Atmosphere were all conducive to a wonderful way to celebrate with family without the cooking or cleanup!
I had Thanksgiving lunch with my family. The food was great, the atmosphere very nice and best of all I didn't have to do the dishes. I might try the carry out next year. Wonderful concept.
Good Thanksgiving lunch!!!
Wonderful meal. Great cause. Do not pass up an opportunity to experience this great restaurant.
the food was great. the service and price was great as well. we will go back. we went for dinner and enjoyed it.
