A great feast of sea bounty. Creative, interesting, fun. Service top without attitude. Sommelier particularly good. Very expensive but for a major celebration...
Been @ Providence Few Times During Holiday Trips w Family & Friends Years Ago. 2019 L.A 🌟 🌟 Michelin. Exquisite Fine Dining & Classy Elegant Decor. Each Time Order Chef’s Tasting Menu ; The Food Served In Artistic Presentation. Excellence / Superb. Best French + Seafood Fine Dining @ L.A. Memorable Evenings 🤩 🥰 🥂 🍷
The food is precious and artfully presented here. Some men might complain that they leave hungry, but it is a treasure of a restaurant, and if you come here for a special occasion, they will give you a printed menu for your occasion to keep as a souvenir. Their wine list is excellent, as is all of their creative and beautiful seafood dishes. I highly recommend ordering the chef's tasting menu.
Best meal of my life! Its worth every penny. Food was astoundingly good, Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and ambience peaceful.
Value For Money: 3.5/5
I enjoyed one of the best meals of my life at Providence. It's the kind of place you save up for... and it is worth every penny. The food is astoundingly good, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is peaceful. You can actually hear your dinner companions speak. I went with friends and came away with a very happy tummy and memories for a lifetime.
Best occasion restaurant in Los Angeles unless you are wealthy enough to eat there everyday (in which case, go for it). Exquisite food and service, hushed interior without any stodginess. We do not drink alcohol and, unlike many other highly rated restaurants here or in NY & Paris, we weren't treated like unsophisticated knuckle draggers/cola drinkers for that. I can't remember everything we ate, but it was all delicious as well as beautiful on the plate.
It's a wonderful place -- excellent food. But for me, it's just too expensive. I guess Michelin stars mean you can charge a lot. But I'd rather pay a bit less and go more often.
Great seafood restaurant! Attentive staff, good selection of wines, very elegant interior, and nice atmosphere overall. The salt prawn that they cook right by your table was the highlight of our meal! We did find it a little pricey ($450 for two with wine), but I guess that’s expected from a two-star Michelin restaurant. I had a fantastic birthday dinner there!
“Let’s go to Pink’s after dinner, if we’re still hungry,” I told Catboy, knowing that there might be a possibility that we might have some room left in our bellies after a fancy dinner at Providence. I knew there would be about a 50/50 chance. Does anyone else ever do that? What is it about going out to a fine dining restaurant to eat overpriced fancy food that sometimes leaves more to be desired in the end, and then wanting to hop on over somewhere for a quick, cheap, fast foodish type of meal? Maybe it is a combination of the fact that fine dining is all about fancy presentation and tiny portions coupled with a subconscious need to restore normalcy. Unless you’re a baller shitting out money, a dinner at Providence isn’t an everyday meal. Plus, I was curious to try the Dodger Blue hotdog at Pink’s, back when Dodger fever was going on when they were on their way to losing the World Series.
One of L.A.'s best
Unparalleled seafood and more. Fantastic service as well. Naturally the cost is a bit more than average, but not unreachable--completely worth it.
Chef Michael is as talented as we had heard. We indulged in the lavish tasting menu and added on the caviar service, which was incredible. The blini’s were by a landslide the best I’ve ever tasted. Every single dish we tried was delicious. The bread service had the best butter, kind of grassy yet so creamy, amazing. The seafood dishes were true to the hype, prepared perfectly with a beautiful blend of flavours. The service we found to be a bit pretentious which is really unnecessary and detracted from the fun. We shared a bottle of champagne which paired nicely with each dish. Met the Chef on our way out, which delighted me to be able to compliment him. His food was worth the hefty price point. Next time we are in LA, would be an honor to return.

The finest dinner experience I've ever had. It offers the absolute best sea food anyone can find on the West Coast. The service is straight out of a movie, and everything is incredibly clean. They even offer you a little gift bag as a souvenir for the evening. The meal will last around three hours and take you on a ride of savors. If you have the time and money, and know you'll be in the area, consider booking this place long in advance.
"Great customer service! We get our order quickly and all dishes were extremely tasty. Love this Lazy Dig so much ❤. The staff is so welcoming and friendly they made a great atmosphere. Would visit again very soon.I would love to come again. What a gorgeous place with amazing price for food that is so wonderfully put together! From the custom menu to the dessert, WOW!
Wow, for taking us a in a few minutes earlier than reserved."
Unarguably the best fine dining in LA. They are currently doing the 8-course menu for $250, with the option of additional items such as oysters, uni custard, and salt crusted spot prawns. I would not skip out on these additions because they were so delicious!
Generally, tasting menus usually have a handful of courses you find fault with. This is not the case with Providence- every course was executed without any flaws. We were there for 3 hours, but it never felt long nor did we feel rushed. Pacing was perfect.
Two Star Michelin fine dining restaurant by Michael Cimarusti. Situated on Melrose Avenue, Providence is reminiscent of fine French restaurants with white linens, plush chairs and offers a prix fixe menu centered around an assortment of fresh and sustainable seafood. Flavors are balanced and each dish is beautifully presented. Signature dishes include the uni egg and langoustine. Service is professional and efficient (although could use with a bit more warmth). Wonderful place to celebrate an anniversary or other special occasion.
This is my first time to dine in this Michelin 2 star restaurant. Chef Michael Cimarusti’s 8 course tasting menu is nothing but spectacular. 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.
