Due to last-minute reservations at the bar next to another individual from New Orleans area. We both thought the restaurant was overrated and overpriced (food good, not outstanding at these prices) certainly compared to even Paris or New York City. But was particularly annoying to...me is I thought they missed giving me 1 of the courses and rather than replacing it up as each of the courses were very tiny, they said no, you're given a course. Obviously they do not believe that the customers always right.More

Dining at Providence in Los Angeles was a culinary voyage that celebrated the flavors of the sea and the art of fine dining. The restaurant’s elegant and contemporary ambiance set the stage for an exceptional meal. The menu was a symphony of fresh seafood and...seasonal ingredients, highlighting the richness of Californian cuisine. The tasting menu was a journey into creative dishes and exquisite flavors. The staff’s knowledge of the menu and their dedication to culinary excellence made the dining experience truly exceptional. Pairing the dishes with wines from the extensive list was a delightful exploration of the region’s gastronomy. Providence is not just a restaurant; it’s a tribute to the beauty of fresh, locally sourced ingredients and a must-visit for anyone seeking an exceptional gastronomic experience in Los Angeles.More

Friends surprised us by booking the Chef's Table. I wish the evening could be recorded to include smell and taste. Every course was superb and excellently paired with a wine which was explained by the sommelier. The activity in the kitchen was fascinating. We weren’t...at all rushed but the evening went much too fast for this amazing culinary evening.More

This was our annual trek to Providence from OC. A 90 minute drive up that's usually abt a 30 minute drive home (though this visit, the PGA US Open was in town and doubled our time home). We rarely return twice to a fine dining...location unless it's really THAT good...and Providence is one of those rare restaurants. Over the years, I've become a fan of Mr Donato Poto and he's part of the reason I return. His FOH table-side manners are just so exquisite, understated and lovely. Last year, I dined at another Michelin starred restaurant and had a chat with the chef; he asked what my favourite restaurant was. How do you answer THAT question? He said he wouldn't be offended and would appreciate a frank answer; so I told him on balance of food and service, it would be Providence for fine dining. And then he added, that, yes, chefs Michael Cimarusti and Tristan Aitchison create delicious menus and the service by Mr Poto is one that's hard to beat. So Mr Poto has fans in other chefs. Anyway, to my dismay, Mr Poto wasn't there that evening. But, his son Nick was. Mr Nick Poto, like his father, was generous and gracious. He was also friendly, energetic and kind, as was our server Ivar. We were in good hands. Also, the restaurant underwent a gorgeous remodel this spring. It felt like a nice, romantic, adult, elevated grotto, awash in oceanic green. There were fewer tables, adding to a more exclusive ambiance. It was a nice change. The food was delicious. This summer, the menu tasted more French inspired with the sauces. Before, the flavours were more Japanese-inspired; clean, vibrant, yet subtle. This go-around, it was more luscious, requiring us to use the red fife sourdough to get every bit of the sauce. And there was one dish that had red shiso, that was so yummy it blew my mind. As a fan of seafood, I love returning here each year. My favourites of the evening are depicted below; of those, the playful One Potato Two Potato caviar dish was stunning. I've had caviar at the Petrossian Cafe inside Tiffany's a month prior and Providence's was better than anything they offered. The amuse bouche always delights, as does the salt-roasted spot prawns served table-side, the chocolate husk tea and the takeaway granola. If you pick one fine dining restaurant in LA, this would be it.More

This is my first time to dine in this Michelin 2 star restaurant. My favorites were the langotti pasta with crab and uni, the lobster with matsutake mushrooms and the salmon with pepper truffle sauce with a side of sun chokes and white truffle shavings....The apple sorbet with apple chip was refreshingly delightful. Margo and the other staff members made this 3 hour dining experience remarkable.More

We went there for our 20th anniversary. Everything to perfection on their fixed price menu. Truly a dining experience with unparalleled service. So many people serving and supporting one another. Did not leave hungry with so many courses and extras (10 we counted). We could...not eat another bite by dessert. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Because of the cost, it’s more of a special celebration for us. Enjoyed the evening immensely. Excellent tasting menu.More

Yes, there is a dress code in place at Providence. Generally, upscale and elegant attire is recommended. It's best to dress in smart casual or formal wear, such as collared shirts, dresses, slacks, and closed-toe shoes.
