    Providence is our go to restaurant for special occasions. We moved to Los Angeles from Providence, RI so the name alone has a special place in our hearts. We have celebrated multiple birthdays, new jobs, and other special life events here. Last night’s experience did not disappoint. The meal started with the most amazing amuse bouche we’ve ever tasted! I will be thinking about those first three items for days/weeks! So good! They set the bar very high for subsequent items received. While the rest of the items were exceptional, it was the main course that equaled those first three menu items. We had the salmon (my husband loved it) and the venison (I loved it!). The staff makes you feel taken of as they curate an amazing dining experience. Can’t wait to celebrate our next life event at Providence.

    We had a great experience here celebrating my uncle’s 70th birthday last night. Food was amazing very tasty, delicious and beautifully made. I’ve been to many fine dining in the past but this One is my favorite. The experience throughout the course was exquisite. The staff was incredible too and we had the best service. I would like to thank all the staff for accommodating my request from making my uncle a personalized birthday menu and seated us the best room in the house which we had to witness behind the scenes how they beautifully crafted each food they served to us it’s truly a work of art. We enjoyed dining here with my husband and my uncle it was one of the best experiences yet.

    Providence exudes quality in every single facet of a restaurant. Our server Ivar was friendly, witty, and extremely knowledgeable. The servers, runners, and staff never slipped up or made a wrong move. The dinner itself was rich, flavorful, complex, and decadent. It’s a meal I want to be special, not normal. It’s an experience I will never forget and an establishment more than worthy of 2 Michelin stars. Highly recommend this restaurant for an above and beyond dinner.

    It was amazing. We had to sit at the bar due to the high capacity in the dining room but it worked out for the best. The bartenders in front of us ended up being such a fun duo to converse with. They were so kind. The food was 12/10. So good and amazing presentation. Big compliments to the chef and team

    The owners of this restaurant have spared neither effort nor expense to realize their vision about being unique and outstanding. Everything from the decor to the personalized china and even individual silverware holders is one of a kind creations. The staff is attentive, knowledgeable and witty. And then there’s the food. The chef’s tasting menu is well worth it and comes with choices between duck, wagyu and salmon. Every course, including amuse bouche and other complimentary bites throughout the meal is a taste sensation as well as a piece of art. The wine list is extensive and craft cocktails what you would expect from a world class establishment. Highly recommended.

Side Note: We were both sooooo full by the end of the evening & that made us even more happy & content with spending the amount of money we did! Sooooo very worth every dollar!!
