    Providence deserves 3 stars! Simple and plain. Knowledge of the staff down to the bussboy is phenomenal. Sommelier is God tier and the food is as well. I would put them highest rated and best service I have had in LA

It was my 20yo son's first time eating at a place like this and he stayed in awe! The rating fits the hype and is a must-try for anyone wanting an all-around great meal!

    We attended for a late dinner at 9pm, and servers were trying to take away our dishes as fast as possible even clearly knowing we have not finished. For a 10 courses dinner, they came to our table and asked if we are finished by 24 times.

    Providence never let's us down. We were seated at the private chefs table which was a treat, with a great view of large parts of the kitchen. The price is high, but the service is flawless, and the food is beautiful to behold and to eat.

    This is our 2nd time here and we love it so much, we have already made reservations next week for a 3rd visit. We are extremely happy with every aspect of this restaurant....and we have been and are excited to share this extraordinary experience with more friends and family. We have purchased a gift certificate for two for another couple that we know will be amazed with Providence. It is so amazing that we did not even have to wait nor ask for our car...it was waiting for us as we approached the valet parking stand!!!! EVERYONE is professional, courteous, happy and friendly...the Host, head waiter, waiters, waitresses, the persons in charge of bread, water, coffee, the valet...EVERYONE. Oh, and I guess I should mention that the food was EXCELLANT!!!! If you want to impress anyone, have dinner at Providence

    With well-reviewed restaurants that don't stay in business long, I can only admire the consistency and the high quality level of Providence. Hats off to the entire staff! Our waiter was very professional and charming. He even made the effort to speak with us in French after hearing us. We didn't take the wine parring because I was driving but the sommelier chose a smaller selection of excellent wine. The experience was as good as I remember. Providence is by far one the best restaurants in LA.

    Food, service and presentation was excellent. I especially loved how they make an effort to integrate sustainable practice - using parts of ingredients that usually go to waste in creative ways. Definitely deserving of Michelin stars. Attention to detail was impeccable, especially for the birthday girl. We were very full at the end of the meal. Very memorable experience!

    The food was great. The service excellent but the price is high ard 360$ per person with tax and service charge. If price is 20% lower would have been a perfect score. Beware lots of sea food might have stomachache

    There is no greater dining experience. Experiencing dinner at Providence is an unforgettable event. The attention to detail and pallet of sensations is extraordinary. One of the individuals in our group, informed us that she didn't eat fish or meat...what? Providence staff pivoted, perfectly accommodating her unique requirements, offering parallel plates of magic, simulating meats, fishes, and synonymous events, while we meat lovers experienced a bonanza of fish, duck and Wagyu beef. The bread, the dessert, the wine pairing, the ambience and most importantly, the staff, were all a "10!" Go hungry to Providence and you'll walk away filled with not only a lot of food, but enthusiasm, from experiencing such a culinary kaleidoscope, shifting and twisting your pallet in ways unforeseen! Love it! Price is well worth the life-inspiring experience.
