Everything was delicious, and hands down the best service I’ve ever experienced
We were celebrating Valentine's day a few days late...
My husband ordered the dry aged tomahawk and I ordered the brick chicken. We also had the cannoli flight for dessert. The food was good, was expecting a more generous serving for the price; it would have been nice to have a salad and veggies with our dishes as it was literally just sliced tomahawk & small pieces of chicken on each plate. Flavor was on point though. The architecture is beautiful and ambiance is fresh & fun. Our server was amazing even though she was extremely busy with other tables! Overall, I would rate 7 out of 10- if the food blew me away, I would have rated at 9 but unfortunately that didn't happen.
Had a Valentine’s Day meal here.
We enjoyed our time at Provisional! We were a group of 6 and the staff took care of us and we enjoyed the food.
Beautiful venue with excellent service and food. Highly recommend for a nice date night.
Everything about this place is fab.
Went for Valentine’s Day and was presently surprised!
The Squash blossom pizza was very bland. Other than that, everything was great.
What a great experience came across 8 members of staff for a 1 night stay and I can honestly say they all had the same pleasant and helpful demeanor. I will be staying at this hotel again and would also put the Pendry at the top of my list when visiting other area's. The provisional restaurant did not disappoint with catering to 13 people Including kids. We had one dish the Egg sandwich runny whites for one of the children BOOM no problem replaced in a jiffy and with everybody else tucking into Brunch the manager new the importance of that child's needs in regards to eating. She asked if we would like a small bowl of fruit whilst the sandwich was being made. Happy Happy Happy child.
Thank You Pendry,
They did an excellent job . I am very happy with my experience and will definitely come back again . The food was really good 5 stars
The food and service was amazing! Highly recommend and will definitely be going back.
The service was impressive. I was greeted and acknowledged by name by the hostess at the entrance. My server was personable and very aware of both food and wines on the menu. Charcuterie was fresh, perfectly complemented by toasted Italian bread. Olives proved flavorful and were attractively served in a small glass sealer jar. I saw that pepe e cacio was served only on Sunday and was delighted when it was prepared tableside by a friendly and skilled server. Using reggiano parmesan instead of the usual Romano, the server tossed the cooked pasta in a concave depression in the large wheel of parmesan. The result was very impressive as theater and as gastronomy. Very good experience.
Excellent food! A must do if you’re a local or visiting San Diego.
If I lived closer, The Provisional would be a daily habit. Their food is to die for, the decor is gorgeous and the service is top notch.
Loved it! Great cocktails, amazing menu! Whole experience was fabulous!!!
One of my favorite places to grab breakfast, lunch, or dinner! The food is always fabulous and the staff is super knowledgeable!
Our waitress Amanda was lovely!
Food was great, really glad we went during restaurant week to try it out! Will definitely be back.
Food was delicious, and a beautiful restraint. Size of entrée was smaller than expected for the price, but delicious!
Our lunch was at 1pm so thee wasn’t a rush. The food was good but pricey if it wasn’t for the restaurant week menu (two of us ordered from the regular menu, the other two from the restaurant week menu). Our waiter was the problem; he kept forgetting parts of our order, then disappeared for ages. The were other servers and bell person on the floor but no one was attentive to our empty glasses. The energy seemed really off and there was a lack of attention to customer service. It was a true shame and put a damper on my husband’s birthday lunch. Needless to say, there are many more places with better service. We won’t be attending and I will not take my work colleagues there for offsites.
Really great food and service. Not your stereotypical hotel restaurant. They care about food quality and service.
Great location and ambiance. The service was great, excellent staff. The food was OK, but certainly, I was not impressed. To say the least, bland.
Fantastic food and excellent service. Will surely be coming back. Tons of great selection, terrific quality of options to select. Looking forward to our next visit!
Fantastic food and exceptional service
Yummy Pizza and sea bass! We tried the Nostalgico cocktail and the Tiramisu Classico. Everything was perfect! Thank you! Thumbs up to Kurth, a friendly and professional server. What a great experience!
I was expecting a much better experience being the first time here. The utensils and the cups smelled very bad and then they took the utensils to clean them again but they came out smelling the same. It kind of ruined our appetites. The pricing was too high for the quality of the food.
All was wonderful.
Food wasn’t as good as I expected. Ravioli was overcooked. Caesar salad a bit wet. Wine was nice.
I was horribly disappointed with the food and service that family and I received here. I have been to the other establishments that are part of the Pendry and have never had an issue. Our server, when she did come near our table, seemed extremely bothered that anything was being asked of her, she even rolled her eyes when asking for a refill. The food was served to us cold and not cooked all the way. To top all of it off, In my reservation request, I had specified that I would be going there to celebrate my birthday. Ultimately, I didn’t even get a candle to blow out or well wishes. From start to finish, my experience there was one that makes me never want to dine at this restaurant again.
Live music on weekends creates a great vibe. Food and atmosphere is great too.
Good overall. Great sunchokes! Good pizza. Good dessert.
Outstanding 3 course Christmas Dinner - our waiter Sy was outstanding as well
Amazing service and food! Thank you!
The food was amazing, but the service was the BEST part of this experience. They delivered on every front, and we will definitely come back again.
My family and I met up with another family for the fun Pancakes great service, tasty food, and fab natural light ambiance! Such a cute idea with kids for the holidays, too!!
Thee service was awful. We went for the Santa breakfast with my two kids. Our server was nice in the beginning when taking our order but I never saw him again until I had to flag him down. Someone else brought our food and I wasn’t checked on for 45 min until I literally stood up and motioned him back and said “I have to go. You never came back one to see if my food was okay? If we needed anything? If I wanted another latte or needed more water or anything not once” and he looked at me like I was an idiot. Now if I’m paying over $100 for a meal I expect at least my water refilled. I was truly taken back by the poor service in such a nice place. My food was wonderful. Pricey but great.
Now had the server even apologized or anything it would have made a world difference. And I still tipped him $15 because it’s Christmas and I didn’t need the stereotype of “black people dont tip” to further itself. So I felt forced to. But I’ll never return again sadly and I hope the owner sees this. Idk if I didn’t look like I was “worth” the service but it was awful. Won’t return
Really good foods and service!
Dinner with a friend
The Service was great! Love the ambiance and architcture
The menu needs more breakfast- healthy choices, acai bowls, and other more creative egg choices.
Parking is terrible and Valet too expensive
The restaurant is in a spectacular space. The food was good: order the sunchokes, Brussels sprouts, and carrots to share as appetizers for the table. The service was ok not great and a little chaotic. The pacing was pretty slow even for fine dining. I think if the service was tightened up it would feel like more worth the high prices. The chocolate tart was very tasty.
