The dining experience at Providence was like a wonderful symphony throughout the evening - from the amuse bouche to the courses to the desserts. The amuse bouche are wonderful start to the dinner that really set the tone for the rest of the evening. Then within the tasting menu, we especially enjoyed the LINGOTTI with dungeness crab and uni. You cannot go wrong with the Providence when it comes to a special dinner. The waiter/waitress are supper attentive and knowledgeable, and the food really left you wanting more (even though you'll be stuffed by the end of the meal).

This was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The food was delicious and unique. I especially enjoyed the scallop with black truffle and the miso cod. The service was attentive and friendly. I had been dreaming about dining her for 10 years and finally was able to and it was everything I expected and more! Loved Providence so much!

We had an amazing time. We were given the private room viewing the kitchen for our meal. The courses and wine pairing were amazing. The staff are so friendly and passionate about food. They seem so happy working all together. A memory of a lifetime. It’s outrageously expensive and we would only return for a very special occasion in the future.

We ordered the duck breast for the main selection and the duck taste was a bit strong for us. The quality is very good and perhaps this strong taste is just a less of a preference for us.

The umbrella section was very considerate but when we picked up our umbrella before leaving it was broken. Hopefully in the future there can be better accommodations for rainy days.

Forget to prepare any Birthday Vibe, even pre-confirmed the dinner is for Birthday & Holiday celebration. My 3 guests complained the the main course, fish, is not fully cooked and didn't finish the dish. Restaurant did not have any remedy on this, just ignore it. It cause me feel sorry for my guests. I visited several Michiln restaurant globally, but it's one of the worst experience I faced, especially for Christmas dinner, in my life, even I paid 1K deposit and reserved it 2 months ago.

There is no finer restaurant in the city of Los Angeles especially for fish lovers. From the moment you walk in until the moment you leave, everything is exquisite. The food, the service and the ambiance are everything you could hope for in a dining experience. It is expensive and worth every cent. Nothing better in my mind.

Providence offered my wife and I the best culinary experience we've ever had. The staff went above and beyond in a coordinated effort to provide a service we could not have dreamed of, like a subtle, perfectly executed dance, picking up on every clue and opportunity to wow us. Courses flowed into each other seemlessly, each more delicious than the last, paired with a beautiful selection of wines.

I could mention the menus specially printed to congratulate us for our first anniversary. I could mention how one of our waiters offered us in impeccable French the translation of "Sunchoke" after I had wondered about it seconds before to my wife. I could mention the extra free glass poured for me over dessert, as our waiter had understood that I appreciate sweet wine following a comment at the start of our meal. I could go on about how our glasses were refilled as they were set down, the table cloth was straightened, any crumbs whisked away and items were reorganized almost invisibly, never interrupting our conversation or the flow of courses.

There is an art to service done right, constantly attentive to our every need and yet executed subtly, invisibly. The staff at Providence have mastered it, and this only highlights the world class menu crafted by Chef Michael Cimarusti.
This was a special occasion and Providence rose to meet it and went so far beyond.

A big thank you to the whole team at Providence for a lovely belated birthday celebration. Everything was exquisite-our table, the service, the food, the atmosphere. The food is so beautifully prepared, presented, and selected that each course is a delight for all of your senses. The entire team is very warm and professional. Thank you again.

The chef is so talented. We had the tasting menu with additional caviar service. Every single dish we had was amazing which is very rare! Bravo chef. A couple of our servers were not particularly friendly and the ambiance could use improvement. But my gosh! The food! The food! The food! So worth the hefty price tag.

The tasting menu was super - the hors d'oeuvres were the best part, but the salmon, rockfish and desserts were wonderful too. My 92 year old father can't handle the acidity in white wines any more and the sommelier was very helpful in selecting a pinot to pair with the food. The restaurant is quiet enough that we could have a conversation .
