    The food was impeccable - so much so that there should be a new word for “food” because that word simply doesn’t encompass or do justice to the absolute fine ART that was placed before us for consumption. Incredible service! My friend and I are not what would be considered “foodies” however we sincerely appreciated the experience and ingredients that were thoughtfully crafted and combined to result in a final masterpiece for our senses. The staff were warm and friendly. They did not make us feel as though we weren’t deserving of the experience as some high end restaurants tend to do, rather, they met us where we were and kept us moving forward, guiding us through the chef’s tasting. They answered our questions and laughed with us when we showed our novice-level approach to this 2 Michelin star encounter. Thank you for making us feel like we belonged and equipping us with knowledge we didn’t previously possess in order for us to fully appreciate each component. For many, this type of elevated dining is occasional or perhaps once-in-a-lifetime and Providence ensures it is approachable to each guest regardless of their background or foodie experience.

    Amazing food. Everything was incredible especially the uni egg. I would pass on the white truffle pasta, easily the most underwhelming dish of the night-by far. The Italian Job cocktail was one of the best drinks I’ve had in a while. Definitely a place for a special occasion.

    This restaurant has long been the best in Los Angeles and my most recent visit confirms that it hasn't missed a beat. My only quibble is that the experience in the bar leaves a little bit to be desired, but the food is so good that that's a minor criticism. A special restaurant that will make any visit memorable.

    Apart from the fly that prevented me from finishing my glass of pinot gris is was generally an outstanding experience. The food was superb and delightfully presented. The wine list has gems hidden in it for the discerning wine lover. So much so that we probably had more wine than we should have. Hopefully the staff and other quests weren't too put off by our boisterous behavior!

    Every single dish was a memorable experience. The quality, the skill, and the presentation were outstanding. I highly recommend adding the oysters and the uni to your experience. I was a little let down by the hospitality experience, however. I felt like I was bothering some of the staff and aside from our sommelier, everyone seemed to have an authoritative air about them. Like I was on the edge of being in trouble. I wouldn't write such criticism if I wasn't spending north of 1000$ for the meal (for 2+ wine) but since I was, my expectations of the hospitality goes up significantly. Regardless, thank you to the entire team at Providence for an immaculate and memorable meal.

    They reached out ahead of time to ask if it was a special occasion and when I mentioned it was my girlfriends birthday, I arrived to our own personal menus with printed “happy birthday” on it. When asked to keep the menus, they returned them in perfect ceran wrap cuttings. The service could not have been better, they were asking if the pace of the meal was ok, constantly sweeping my table and covering up any stains with napkins when I went to the bathroom. The bartender came out and prepared the drink in front of us. And at the end they beautifully organized our deserts to go and gave us some free granola which I put into a berry parfait. The following morning. Wonderful experience!!!
