As always this restaurant is extraordinary. It lacks only one thing -- no wi-fi. Not because I want to have wi-fi at the table, but to summon Uber post dinner. That needs rethinking.

Stunning. Fabulous. The superlatives are quickly exhausted. I share so many photos and gush proudly to all of my colleagues whenever we get the chance to dine with you all. Exceptional wine pairings and a true treat having the boss himself shave the fresh truffles over the homemade pasta... exceptional. The strawberry and frozen burrata was an excellent close. Bravo team, bravo.

Always love Providence; been going here for almost 10 years. Have noticed the noise level getting a bit louder and the servers more friendly and less inconspicuous. The food as usual is stellar; this last visit I loved the amuse bouches more than the tasting menu; those little bites pack a punch! Considering what you're getting, the price is not unreasonable--esp in June during their anniversary celebration. Allow 2-2.5 hours for the 4-course tasting...and add the cheese course which is sublime. Our next visit will be for the 13-course Chef's tasting. And anticipate traffic; we allotted 75 min to drive up from north OC but once we hit the road it took 90 min.

Simply the best restaurant in Los Angeles. It was Jonathan Gold (LA Times) #1 restaurant for four years straight. It "dove" to #2 on Gold's current list - sorry Gold is just flat wrong.

Celebrated a wedding anniversary this past week, and it was unbelievable. Best dinner we have ever had. The presentation, the preparation and the quality was unbelievable. Spend the extra money, get the pairings with each dish - the pairings were exquisite.

It is very expensive. It is very much worth the price. I can't wait to come back, soon.

Let me start with a technical complaint. This very high-end restaurant offers no Wi-Fi for its patrons, a major omission for a restaurant of this caliber. This is even more significant because Providence is somewhat of a “dead zone” for cellular coverage. I have Verizon, my guest has ATT, and both of us had very poor cellular coverage at Providence. Regardless, Wi-Fi is expected today and should be provided by this level of restaurant.

This was my second visit to Providence. Service is outstanding. Venue is ok, not stunning. Cuisine is excellent, but not outstanding.

First, the waiter made a wrong menu for me and even no apologies. We ordered 4-courses menu because we are not hungry that time, but he gave me 7-courses. It’s my bad I didn’t notice at the very beginning until l paid for the bill. However, the waiter insisted he was right thatI ordered the 7-courses and I already had so I need to pay the 7-courses price????
Second, the courses are too salty! I need to drink very lot to continue my dinner.
Third,the service is not satisfactory.The waiters and waitresses are not all time around you. You need to raise your hand and wave to attract their attention which is so embarrassing.

The excellent experience expected at Providence except for one thing. We were never offered coffee or tea at end of the meal (while the table next to us was offered it).
I also felt the first courses came out too quickly - one dish whisked away and 2 minutes later another dish put down.
However, the seafood is the best quality and beautiful presentation.

Providence did not disappoint. We were there for our 30th anniversary and the dinner was memorable and superb. Each plate was delicious and beautiful. I did the wine pairing which I highly recommend. Each wine was unique and totally enhanced the meal. The only reservation was too much food. We had ordered the caviar to start and next time we will just stick to the menu. Each course is special and unique and the caviar service was lovely but unnecessary. The wait staff were lovely. They did not hover and they were very well informed. They all conveyed enormous pride about the restaurant and the food. This restaurant is highly recommended for anyone that wants to experience fine dining.

One of Los Angeles finest restaurants that delivers every time. Granted for the massive price of their top tasting menu you should leave extremely happy. They slow stuff you for over 3.5 hours and it's just a wonderful tasting journey packaged around a super classy, attentive staff. My second visit in 3 months and both were outstanding!

The chef compliments were fantastic and the caviar was great!! The cod was raw half way through and the duck was so over cooked, had no flavor that you had to chew so much before you could swallow!
We asked if we were drinking tap water or sparkling (whilst we had order a bottle of still)
I would of loved to of ordered the cheese plate that was on the menu but never even got the chance as dessert was just given to me.

Our experience was overall positive. Very pleasant interactions with the sommelier and service staff. The anniversary card was a nice touch. The starter of fresh edibles and the mussels with uni cream was a great way to kick things off.

We did the chefs tasting menu. Some real stand outs. The mirugai/live scallop topped with caviar was fantastic as was the spot prawn. The cheese course was also a stand out.

The only stumble was the sardine which I enjoyed by the rest of the table found salty and fishy. Also, the Wagyu beef was too busy for my liking. A cut of beef like that should be able to stand on its own.

Overall a nice dinner, but very pricey.

Great dinner but we were full after the 8th course because the dinner took 4 hours! There were only 2 of us. The 7 course signature menu might have been better than the chefs menu because the A5 Wagyu was by far the best part of the meal and with the chefs menu the piece is much smaller than on the other less expensive menu!
