The food was delicious and the service was good, but it's a little pricey (around $25+ for entrees). It was quiet and not crowded when we went on a Friday around 7pm so it was a great choice for dinner and a conversation.

Service wasn't the best, even though the server was extremely cordial. We did receive updates on the status but the wait was quite long considering the number of people in the restaurant. Food was good.

Prompt seating in a pleasant open space. The service was excellent and we were offered happy hour at out table. The food was excellent and I had the pork 3 ways and was served a generous portion. My wife had trout and was equally satisfied.

We had a great time eating at Province prior to a concert at a nearby venue. The restaurant is modern and has a great urban feel with diners and bar patrons combining for a good energy level. The food was delicious and the executive chef came out to get our reactions. I highly recommend this for dinner or drinks.

The roasted cauliflower steak and the salad were delicious. Unfortunately, the service was slow and inattentive. We asked for an appetizer before our meal and it came with the meal. We asked for olive oil instead of butter and received two plates of butter. The manager apologized for the service so we will try it again because the food was so tasty.

The overall experience here was very good. The valet staff was very friendly when we pulled up in front of the Westin and good feelings continued into the restaurant where the service was excellent. We chose the Christmas dinner and the found the salads and soup to be top notch. The prime rib was a bit tough and it did not seem to be a top quality cut as there was some very tough cutting ahead of us. Few of the pieces we had could have been considered tender and we know it should have been better.

Disappointing! We had a group of 8 diners and came into a nearly empty restaurant, which was fine for noise level. It took quite awhile for waitress to attend to us and take orders and then we waited for almost an hour to be served. I ordered a watermelon/feta salad. There were about 8 chunks of not-so-fresh watermelon, a few tiny crumbles of cheese and some pistachios. $10 or $11! Other diners at our table summarized food as “meh”.
When we finished dining, it again took a very long time for waitress to come back to table so that we could get our checks.
I expected much more from a Westin property.

Stopped in to have dinner before seeing a concert. Tried something new on the menu and it was awesome as usual. Try to drink that my buddy had the last time we were there and it was also very good. If you’re in downtown Phoenix this is one of the neighborhood hotspots.

So we had a reservation at 7:30 which was fine we were seated. Order scallops and my husband ordered a steak. It took approximately 1 hour to get our food, I can somewhat understand this if the restaurant was packed but it was not. Our food came and my scallops were luke warm. I notified our server and I think the manager came over and took them back to the kitchen. To give credit to the manager he brought me a salad, gave us a round of drinks and comp my meal.

We chose Province for a pre-show dinner because it was close and had a reservation available. We arrived a few minutes early and were seated right away. They were very efficient about serving us drinks and taking our dinner order and that’s where it fell apart. The restaurant was quite full and it seemed like many of the other patrons were probably attending the same show. After waiting about an hour we began to worry about our order and flagged down the waitress. She claimed that the kitchen staff were mostly new and that everything was backed up. I wish that had been communicated sooner. About ten minutes later the manager was called to the table next to us because they were in the same dilemma, and we grabbed him as well because at that point we needed to leave. He apologized and comped us our drinks and we left. I was hungry, and the menu seemed quite appealing, but I will probably never find out as I am unlikely to return.

Moral: They shouldn’t be taking reservations if they can’t fulfill them, and they should have communicated their problems earlier.

Happy Hour and lounge food in a great up-scale environment. We enjoyed several dishes. The cauliflower croquettes came with a drizzle of mustard flavor sauce that off-set the creamy vegetable. The stuffed meatballs came with a tasty, sweet sauce that I wanted to lick off the plate. The shrimp and grits were also good, even though the shrimp were slightly overcooked. Service was slow, but several staff stepped in to move things along.

The evening started off very nicely. Drinks at the bar. Seated at our table about 5:15 pm prior to a 7:30 concert date. Long story short 2 out of 4 meals served at about 6:45 ish two others in the party did not get served as we needed to leave for our scheduled performance. Not a good experience. In defense The manager did come over and attempt. To make things right . nothing could be done at that point.

This is the perfect spot for downtown Phoenix dining. The food is wonderful and staff is friendly and professional. My husband and I have been going there for a few years now before attending theater performances at the Herberger and any establishment that has the same manager and servers over the years "speaks volumes" in my book.

All the appetizers and the watermelon salad are really good. Our waitress was super sweet and helpful. We told her that we don't like grits and she figured out a solution for us to still be able to have what we wanted even though that meant altering the dish quite a bit. The calliflower bites are delicious as well we ordered them twice. Great experience all in all.

Province continues to be our go-to spot for a really good, upscale dinner before a downtown event. The menu is really quite imaginative, the ingredients are fresh and locally sourced where possible, and the service is friendly, professional, and dignified. It has a good selection of beers, wine, and craft cocktails. We are generally there early, like 5:30, before a concert or a play, on the weekends, and the noise level is quite manageable, compared to others where you have to shout to be heard. Since it is a business hotel restaurant (the upscale Westin), I suspect it's a bit busier during the week. It is definitely worth a visit.
