The Infatuation

Providence is experimental, seafood-focused fine dining that's absolutely worth the price of admission.

Ratings 8.5-9.0:Now we’re in the range of absolutely excellent restaurants that you might go to more than once a year/lifetime. These restaurants tend to define a city, and make up the places that you absolutely cannot miss if you want to have any credibility as a restaurant-informed person in a major metropolis.

We did the chefs tasting w wine pairing. The Som was excellent, all of the staff was forvthat matter, but the food for the most part didn’t wow me, and none of the excellent main ingredients used shined. Some were just covered in other flavors that kind of masked the quality of fish (its a fish heavy restaurant, which is great)... having said that there certainly were great dishes. I just wouldn’t spend the money to go big with the chefs tasting menu like that again, but I would definitely return.

To celebrate my son’s 25th birthday. A memory I will cherish the complicated, delightful meals we enjoyed. One of the most beautiful dining experience. Thank you, Providence, for exceeding our expectations.

This restaurant should have three Michelin stars. The food and service are outstanding. Even though it is expensive what you get is well worth the money. My wife come every year for her birthday and get the royal treatment. I would recommend this restaurant for those who want to experience a great evening.

Providence is an excellent restaurant with fantastic service. Ambiance is excellent as well and romantic.

I had the Providence tasting menu.

- I cannot recall the appetizers I had but they were well made, the flavors were well articulated and enjoyable.

- Black Cod -- The best part of the tasting menu. Cooked to perfection and tender. I think this was the best fish I have ever had at a restaurant.

- Liberty Farms Duck -- Good and flavorful.

-A5 Wagyu - The beef was tender and buttery as advertised. First time that I have had A5 so I do not have a frame of reference for comparison. I would have preferred the Black Cod as my main entree over the beef.

70% Chocolate - Rich chocolate mousse with a peach ice cream.

This is a special restaurant. We have come here to celebrate four separate anniversaries, and it only gets better every time. Every taste and texture is exquisitely constructed. They were exceptionally accommodating when I messed up and booked for the wrong day.

I had a great experience at Providence to celebrate my husband’s birthday and our anniversary. Randy gave each of us Happy Birthday card and Happy Anniversary card with was really thoughtful. We had the 2nd menu on the menu book, since I had allergy to shrimp, so they accommodate some of my plate to other seafood. So we kind of have 2 different meals. The service was great. They also gave us their homemade muffin for our breakfast:)

The only thing I think might need some improvement was the restroom. I wish they could put some air fresher in it. Other than that, it’s a great experience.

Definitely a splurge but well worth it. This is a place to go if you like a full dining experience. Husband and I each enjoyed the chef’s tasting menu(14 course). We received a handful of amuse buche beforehand and an extra dessert course in addition to our menu. They also sent us home with a “midnight snack”, zucchini cake.
Everything was DELICIOUS!
Service is incredible. Tim(sommelier) surprised us with a taste of Visciole. It’s a sour cherry dessert wine that we’d never heard of and it was ABSOLUTELY spot on what we never knew we were looking for.
Can’t wait to go back!

I would never be able to handle dinner here without a special smaller menu as I was completely stuffed after just the DineLA menu. I wish I could return more often as the food was delightful & absolutely compelling a return visit. Top notch & classy joint but allowing for more casual comfortable dress. I would say this dinner was my favorite ever in Los Angeles. Bravo!
