A thoroughly disappointing dining experience. Honestly it’s shocking that this restaurant even has one Michelin Star. Not one course wowed me and it is offensive to spend $800 on a meal when your only fish option for a main is Steelhead. Throwing Cumin on my Steelhead is not an exponential dining experience. Also, it felt as though the staff couldn’t wait for everyone to leave. All in all I’d really like my money back.

I was able to celebrate our anniversary at this lovely place! Received a card, and they were able to accommodate all of my allergies. Met the wonderful sommelier named Tim who gave excellent recommendations to follow throughout the evening! Couldn’t have taken my husband anywhere else for a surprise dinner! We were both wonderfully pleased with all aspects of dinner!

The food was absolutely exquisite. The service was excellent, but since we had such a late reservation toward the end of the night, it felt just a little rushed. But we still had a wonderful time and enjoyed the meal tremendously.

I came here to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday. They made it memorable for her and my family. Even though we opted for the 1st menu (yellowtail, black cod, main entree and a dessert), they also brought out 5 additional items (shot of peas, wagyu roll, crackers, crab, mussel and 4 additional dessert items). My son actually said the service is sooo good he couldn't believe. The wagyu was so delicious it literally melted in your mouth. I would love to come back again.

Amazing food that was brought out with timing most orchestras aim for. It was a busy night and a bit too loud for quiet conversation, but excellent past that.

Yum. Delicious. We had the chef's tasting menu. Every little dish was a treat. The flavors and textures were subtle and imaginative. Presentation was impeccable. Service was excellent.
It's also quiet enough to have a private conversation and a delightful evening.
It is expensive, but the variety of tastes and the imaginative combinations are why you would come here.
This is not the place to come if you want a two-pound steak. But if you really want to see what a creative chef who understands delicate tastes can do with fine ingredients and imagination, you will be quite pleased.

everything was really amazing, for me the duck was overdone, the service is impeccable, the wine pairing perfect, and we could actually speak in normal voice without problem but were not bothered by conversation at the tables near us. A really great evening. Thanks to all!

Great food with solid demonstration of a variety of techniques and flavors. Pacing leads much to be desired with subsequent courses arriving before the current course was finished. While delicious, the bread adds a significant heft to the menu which is not needed. Great ambiance and generally great experience.

Providence is very consistent in its service and food. It is totally unique in its menu and outstanding in their service, every item is described and delivered in unusual dinnerware - very creative.

A nice touch at the end is you get a homemade muffin per person for breakfast the next morning.

Totally sublime. Have eaten at my fair share of nice places over 20 years of actually caring about where I dine and I can say that this meal takes the cake. The temperanillo they had by the glass was outstanding. Service impeccable. Expect to pay $700 to do the tasting menu with drinks/pairing and tip for two people. Even more insane is that it's probably worth it.
