We have now dined at Providence 2 times. Both times we ordered the chef's multiple course menue. Be prepared to be dazzled… and take your time. The location is not good, but it'e definitely worth the journey.

Multiple courses, amazing tidbits, fine dining. For three people with two drinks and a bottle of wine and the tasting menu (not wine pairing)... $1300.

Our first time and it was a fantastic experience. We had the Signature Menu ($190/$275 with wine) with the wine pairing. The service was outstanding and very attentive. The focus of the chef is seafood with various sauces or tasty food with spectacular flavors that compliment the seafood. No rush, took almost 3 hours for the four of us. Portions... More

Wasn't sure what to expect apart from great food. We booked for lunch so turned up in shorts which was definitely under-dressed for this place, but were not made to feel out of place. Opted for the tasting menu and was so happy we did. The food was immaculately executed and presentation was flawless. Definitely not the cheapest lunch we'll... More

Highly rated but I experienced Providence food as just okay for all the hype and the price. Ambiance and service were excellent, beautiful presentation. My steak was perfectly cooked but not very tasty. Sides were good, extensive wine list. Would not rule out trying again but will order something different.

Speaking as one who navigated overseas by Michelin stars, preferredly in triumvirate, I would not hesitate to assay that "Providence" is currently Los Angeles' ultimate celebratory dining experience, bar none. Established L.A. Chef Michael Cimarusti's seafood-focused cuisine is Japanese-inflected culinary artistry expressed in 3 Tasting Menu formats, attentively served in a newly-renovated contemporary dining venue (the old "Patina" digs on...

I've heard all the rumors, and now I know they are true! The food was so amazingly subtle, and beautiful. We had a prix-fixe meal, which was supplemented by a few amuse-bouche offerings, all pretty wonderful! The dining room was very low key and relatively noise-free, which was very nice to find. The staff were all very helpful, very professional,... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood 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.
