As always, Providence does not disappoint. It’s a lovely way to celebrate a special occasion. They go out of their way to spoil their guests. Worth the extra expense. Service is warm and efficient but we never felt rushed. Food and drinks are impeccable.

Amazing food! Really good tasting menu with different varieties of food and the service was excellent. The waiters introduced everything properly and the environment was amazing! The only thing is even though the outside seating is really pretty, there’s mosquitoes and noise from kids playing. But the restaurant was very accomplished to seat us inside after and move

When making the reservation on Open Table I marked it was for a special occasion, a birthday. Also, while at the restaurant we informed ever worker we came in contact with it was my friend’s birthday. During the whole experience their was no special acknowledgment. I have never celebrated at a restaurant and they not make some acknowledgment of a person’s birthday, this really lowered the experience."

First time dining at Mr. Tempo Cantina Hollywood since The Cat and the Fiddle Pub left that space. Fun decor, but the house/elecronica music was far too loud, and with few early diners and a very “live” room of hard surfaces the noise level was hard to deal with. The service was slow but very friendly; the food (salmon tacos and berry salad) was totally delicious, generous portions, and very reasonable prices. We’d certainly consider going back but the noise level does give one pause.
