I hate to give low scores to the restaurant because I love its mission and generally liked the place. My meal of braised pork ribs was delicious, although a little light on the veggies. My husband truly disliked his pork loin because it was both dried out and cold when served. Also, while I didn't mind the slow-ish service so much as we were out with friends, my husband was very annoyed by the time it took to receive the food and that twice we were delivered the wrong main courses. It just seemed like a lot of people were new at this. I will return, though, as I'm confident the staff will make progress in the art of waiting tables and that the kitchen staff will improve their timing. Creative menu, nice wine and beer list, very nice atmosphere in the restaurant. Also, I had to give a low score on value because the food was very expensive compared to other local restaurants.

Amazing food! The restaurant is in a hotel, that is the only downfall, but the food was well worth it!
The kitchen cleanliness rating was a bit low, but the restaurant itself seemed clean. Decor is contemporary. I didn't like the plastic/wire table mats. I would have preferred fabric tablecloths.

Decor is attractive. Service was very slow. Croque madame was made with turkey instead of ham and served “stacked” so the egg and bechamel did not reach the underlayer. The bechamel was thick and gray. We will not go back.

The food was beyond outstanding!!!!! However, the service was the absolute worst I have EVER had! The waitress was an absolutely idiot....it took her over 20 minutes to bring WATER!!!!! Over 30 minutes for Bread....I KNOW that our salads were sitting there until our entrees were ready....I will try this restaurant again for the food, but it I get that waitress again, I WILL WALK OUT!!!!

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!

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.

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.
