I think we had the 14 Course Tasting menu with wine paring. Each course was not only a beautiful work of art but the flavors were spectaular. The presentation was great. The wines were perfectly paired as well. The meal was not inexpensive but we felt that we would go again for another special occasion.

For any seafood lover, you can't miss this restaurant. Every dish is creative with its own unique flavor. Never disappointed and always surprised how good it can maintain the standard for so many years of my visit.

Our entire dining experience was amazing, and without doubt, amongst the best fine dining experiences of my entire life. The Service was impeccable, and the food dishes were exquisite. I do not hesitate to recommend this place to friends and acquaintances, and consider Providence to be the best restaurant in all of Los Angeles.

Had the dineLA tasting menu with a great bottle of rose. Restaurant looks great and like Michelin starred restaurants we visited in Spain. Staff is attentive without fawning over you. Food was awesome! Return? Yes. Recommend? Definitely

We've been here before, and each time it is perfect. From greeting to goodbyes, the service is flawless and polite. Interactions are very appropriate, especially the food and wine descriptions. The owner, Donato, was very gracious with our table and explained the very high standards they keep and how the staff tastes the specials so there is deep knowledge of... More

We met friends during a trip to LA - it's a great fine dining experience (at expected high price). You are offered a choice of pre-fix menus (with some choices as well as options to add). The service all around was excellent and the food arrivals are managed properly. The food was very very good, with a few highlights (sea... More

3.5 stars! One star lost due to undercooked, nearly raw fish main course. Half star lost due to the otherwise excellent staff removing my main course without wondering why half the raw fish remained on the plate. Perhaps the staff is convinced chef can do no wrong. Ego should be balanced with consistency. A well prepared main course should be... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
