Incredible in every way!!! Superb food with excellent wine pairings. Amazingly, 4 hours is not enough time to savor everything so the "take-home gifts" were a welcome and most excellent touch!!! Can't wait for next time...

From the moment we walked in to the minute we left was amazing. The chefs tasting menu was impeccable, we even added the liberty farms duck. The timing of the food, the way it flowed out the kitchen, and the plating, was impressive. Extremely knowledgeable staff, especially Liz, she described the ingredients perfectly, had suggestions when needed, and we had a few laughs. The Chefs Tasting Menu, it is a must, the flavors, textures, temperature, your taste bud will be craving more. Very thought out, meticulously put together, perfection.
Thank You for an incredible evening, her eye were lit up the entire night.

We went there as a celebration of our anniversary, we had the 7 course set menu (one regular and one vegetarian) and it was unbelievable.
Everything was magical and I couldn’t believe how well made the vegetarian menu was, I always have difficulties as the vegetarian menu is not usually as delicious but this time it was unbelievable.
Thank you so much for a great experience, service and an outstanding meal.

It's a theme park for your tastebuds, the wonderful adventure of the various items on the chefs tasting menu was FANTASTIC delicious and presented beautifully with such helpful friendly staff. If you are happily and adventurous eater who loves to taste the world then THIS is for you. If you are a picky eater then you may want to second guess but you truly are missing out if you do. I did not have the wine pairing but my wife did and she would not stop praising the choices of the wines to the meal. Thanks Providence!

It’s started off in a very odd way- got there for a reservation and they said it was next week , I did have confirmation email (keep those)
Anyways it was early enough to be able to accommodate us.
As always the service and food is amazing , every morsel was melt In yr mouth bites. We added the Kobe beef, and truffles . 😋😋😋😋😋
I love the presentation and we truly enjoyed coming to Providence , they never disappoint, delish and entertaining every time we come .

Amazing! Definitely for a dinner that impresses! My boyfriend loved his birthday dinner! A memorable experience. Need to try at least once. I’ve been there three times now and continue to be impressed. Dishes are so creative and lovely presentation. The cocktails are fresh and just so good!! Loved all the cocktails with the fresh ingredients they use. You won’t be disappointed here. A night you won’t ever forget!

I’ve been excited to try Providence for several years and finally had the opportunity for our Anniversary last weekend. The staff was incredible, so professional and attentive. We ordered the 2nd menu and it was more than enough food, we were beyond stuffed. Next time we will order the first menu with the cheese cart add on. Hope to go back again!

Went there for a lunch on Friday (they are open for lunch only on Fridays) and had their 4 course tasting menu. With 3 or so courses of amuse bouches, this was more like a 7 course menu. Everything was just amazing (two items were a touch salty for me). A bit expensive, but definitely one of the best restaurants in L.A.

It has been a while since we ate here and we have resolved to come back more often. Simply a perfect evening. Warm greeting, comfortable seating, delicious cocktails and amuse bouche, all outstanding. We went with the wine pairings and we well rewarded by tastes that complemented each other. The first course had a tomato and coconut sauce which I suggested to our waiter that they provide a spoon to make sure you can really clean you plate to get every last drop. We got separate entrees and then switched half way thru. Very delicious. Desert had flowers and pickled chili on top which was unusual, but extremely delicious. They also brought house made jelly, chocolate and fermented rice macaron with the check and then sent us home with a brioche pastry for breakfast. How perfect can you get?
