    The restaurant decoration design and ingredients design is completely groovy, scallops fried like chicken breast, eel risotto made like Asian super buy instant eel with flavoring and expired sake seasoning, "Hokkaido" uni should be expired for a period of time, the egg smell is really too thick, wild tomatoes make me feel like just pulled out of the trash. The restaurant's management team was the only one I felt had some Michelin credentials, and this disaster made me feel like my taste buds had been trampled.

    Providence is exceptional. Every dish is incredible and the service is impeccable. I loved all the tiny dishes. I would have loved to try the supplemental items which all looked fantastic but there is a lot of food on the normal prix fixe menu as it is. Example, we were given 2 desserts plus the mignardises. Then, granola to-go! It is an experience and worth the expense. If you love seafood, innovative cuisine and fabulous service, you must go.

    I've been to Providence a number of times and this is the first time I found myself slightly disappointed. Service was great - ambience was great - but the food was uneven. Some of the dishes were great - the last salmon dish was barely passable, and certainly nothing special. It seemed like the theme of the meal was to get in as many crunchy bits as possible. Understanding how expensive it is to eat at Providence, and willing to pay, I'm just sad that it didn't live up to previous standards.

    Completely overpriced and over rated. Not anywhere in the realm of real tasty food. Not a single dish that was superb. Everything very average, the ambience needs serious updates (gray carpet? Gray walls? No art? Circa 1990). There are far better options for fine dining or tastier food in LA.

    We got the eight course set menu with wine pairing. Amazing was understatement for each course. Out of this world was more appropriate, especially the caviar, scallops and the waygu beef. The wine pairing was sophisticated. The presentation was also beautiful. Our friend was allergic to shell fish and they switched most of the courses to accommodate it. The price tag was definitely high but the experience was worth every dollar. Highly recommended!

    We were offered a private room which stayed off a fabulous night. From the excellent wine suggestions, to the delightful palate cleansers, we enjoyed all 8+ courses at a leisurely, but well timed pace. Each small plate was beautifully presented and carefully detailed. We all had plenty of food and still left with a surprise treat! It is perfect for a special occasion!

    Went for my wife’s birthday, food was elegant and service was impeccable. The standout dishes for me were the hazelnut dish, the round of small bites and the chocolate dessert with house-made chocolate. The cocktails (alcoholic and non) and wine were delicious. The soundtrack was 80s pop, so unexpected but definitely welcome. Parking is non-existent and the valet was just one guy so that can be an issue.

    We had an anniversary dinner here and it was absolutely top notch. The entire staff was so fantastic, we learned all about the garden and bees on site, and just made it a wonderful evening. We could tell there were difficult parties on both sides of us and the staff was clearly doing an incredible job handling that as well. Absolutely will be coming back.

    We have been wanting to go to Providence for a while and finally pulled the trigger for our anniversary. So, so glad we did. We checked in and the host said, happy anniversary… we have 2 seating options for you… the party for the chef’s table is late so we can seat you there or in our dining room. Are you kidding?!?!? This is amazing… Chef’s Table!!! Wow! Little private room with windows overlooking the kitchen. The staff… super nice!!! Not pretentious. You can tell that this is a team or dear I say family. Chef Michael Cimarusti is in the kitchen… working. Accord to staff, that’s is where he is almost every night. OMG… I haven’t even gotten to the food yet. No misses here. Everything is utterly delicious and creative with honoring the beautiful products. Definitely get the prawns. They are extra but WOW!!! We just did a couple drinks a piece. Signature drinks were very good and wine selection was great and fairly priced. Lots of alcohol options but also some non- alcoholic special drinks …which is nice. We’ve been to a few 2star Michelins as of late and we both agreed this was are favoring overall. The food and service were exceptional. The Chef’s Table was a once in a lifetime experience and to just be offered it… WOW! Chef came in and said hi at the end of the meal. He seemed very down to earth.

    Where to begin?! Everyone is extremely nice, yet still maintain this undertone of effortless professionalism. Dishes and stemware float on and off the table like a Viennese waltz, while ingredients dance along your tongue. Every bite a true testament to the quality and care taken to provide an unmatched culinary experience. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a truly memorable experience.
