Sapori decisi e non armonici rendono la cena un esperienza senza nessuna particolare nota di rilievo, ad eccezione del sale che prevale su tutto. Uno dei tanti esempi in cui le stelle traggono in inganno, elevando erroneamente le aspettative.

We had the poor fortune to sit next to a couple who were loud and obnoxious. The woman was using foul language and they were high fiving and fist bumping throughout our meal. I am fine with this at a ball game, but it truly ruined our experience at what otherwise was a fine dinner. I do feel that someone from the restaurant should have asked them to calm it down, even though my wife and I did not complain.

The service was excellent. Certain of the dishes were as good as it gets, such as the Wagyu beef, and the others were very good. We had the wine pairings and overall the selection was well paired and interesting. The South African wine paired with the Wagyu did not seem to be of the same quality.

Hopefully we will have better luck the next time.

My husband and I had dinner here with a close couple and the experience was amazing! We had both had dined here before separately, but having the tasting menu together was even more enjoyable. We decided on the Signature tasting menu with a bunch of add-ons (uni egg, Santa Barbara spot prawn, Italian White Truffle pasta). All the add-ons were standout dishes as well as the A5 wagyu! The cocktails/wine offerings were amazing as well. But the best part of the evening was the service. Although dinner was long (4 hours), the waitstaff was ON POINT and explained all the dishes and gave impeccable service. We loved the experience so much that we stayed at the bar after our meal service and had drinks there for another 2 hours!

This is a proper experience for a high end restaurant. Everything was perfect and the service was great. Perhaps it Lacks that one amazing signature dish that sorprises you, but I would definitely return and try the rest of the menu. The oysters were great.

Adam and his wonderful service team took fantastic care of us. We sat at the chefs table, in a private room. Indulged on a fantastic range of top-notch Asian fusion cuisine, whilst witnessing how the magic is created in the kitchen.

The Two-Michelin Star for Providence is Well Deserved.

Thank you for the wonderful experience.

A unique experience. Most of the small bites were seafood based. The wagyu beef was excellent but my favorite was the 'Ban this Dessert' which is a play on frois gras and the idiotic CA govt telling us what we can and cannot eat. Service impeccable. Creative plating and the food was delicious. We did the Chef's tasting menu -- cannot wait to go again.

Lived up to its reputation. Felt very comfortable trying things that I would not have eaten anywhere else. It’s worthy of his accolades, Michelin stars, and more.

They started slow, but it from the second course onward was some of the best food we’ve had, ever.
