A restaurant for a very special occasion. Enjoyed the 8 course menu, pricey but worth every penny. Service and food presentation and taste were outstanding. Must enjoy seafood and be somewhat adventurous.

One word - 'Impressive'!!! We celebrated birthdays for 2 of our family members and we were given a 'chef table', direct view into the kitchen. Service was exceptional, very very attentive. Food presentation superb (of course quality of the food was excellent). Timing of service was right on! We were also given a customized menu w/ our names on - well done! The Matradee was very friendly and respectful - very pleasant and made our entrance and exit very welcoming and enjoyable. We spent about 3hrs to finish up our impressive 10+ course meal (don't even recall how many courses we had LOL). Every dish was thoroughly presented and explained. Very professional crew. Upon our exit, we also met the owner / Chef Mike. We'll definitely return again!

It's been a year. Drastically different menu from before, but it's very refined. If I had to pick 1 thing, the bread was super rough, very tired jaws. Everything else was excellent.

This is a once in a lifetime experience. All of the different distinct flavors were amazing. This is definitely worth saving your pennies for! Our waiter was very engaging. The Boulvardier cocktail was a great way to start the meal-best I’ve ever had. I only wish I could watch them work in the kitchen-such talent.

We got reservations on opening night, post COVID closure. It had been about 13 months since we'd been inside.

Food was spectacular. They did suffer from some service hiccups, but nothing too terrible and all taken care of. To be expected after being off for over a year.

Of note, the bread was not the customary service with multiple choices. Just a (delicious) loaf with the butter and salt. No cheese cart either.

I hope they can bring back the bread service and cheese cart soon!

All around wonderful to be back and can't wait for the next dinner here.

Never fails, has always been our favorite restaurant in LA. After being on lockdown for 3 months, we were one of the lucky ones who were able to get dressed up and leave the house and have an amazing dinner before the restaurants closed down for another 3 weeks.

Dined here on the night of reopening, and it was superb! Every course was a flavorful work of art, with service and ambiance that did not disappoint. As a restaurant owner myself, I can say the safety measures surpassed all expectations, and yet they fully retained their famous level of personal service. Perfect night out and exactly what we needed to lift our spirits.

Our son invited us out to California for a visit and to celebrate his birthday. What do you get a 30 year old minimalist for his birthday? A fantastic experience at Providence! Our son received a personalized birthday card and a candle on his dessert plate.
We felt pampered and they worked very hard to create special dishes for me since I am gluten intolerant.
We would not hesitate to eat there again! Wish there was such a place where we live in Ohio!

Superb food with excellent service. They seem to only offer chefs menus in different variations. But the food was so flavorful and obviously carefully curated! It is also offered with a full wine pairing with some unusual wines. They mostly source locally but go farther for better more interesting ingredients when needed by season.
Our dinner was long but felt like a mini vacation! We are saving up so we can go again sometime.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The presentation of each dish was very well designed. The progression of the courses and taste was just right. Had a little bumpy start with the service, but the staff recuperated.

Highly recommend the experience.
