We have been to many exquisite and high-end Chef's Table meals in the best restaurants and Inns across this country. While the unique dishes and service at Providence were excellent, we were surprised by the décor which did not match many online interior photos we had seen. The main dining room apparently, and unfortunately, was re-decorated in the recent past... More

The service and food is outstanding and innovative. Atmosphere is romantic while also relaxed. The spot I have been here 4 or 5 times and had an incredible experience each time. A true Gem in Los Angeles.

Good ambience and service. Fabulous food with a very varied menu. It is expensive but is worth the price. I don't know what else to say but tripadvisor requires 100 characters. Maybe they should think again about that policy

Jonathan Gold ranks Providence #1 in his top 100 restaurants, and I must agree. The food is presented in small courses, beautifully arranged and served with precision timing. It was a special occasion, so we opted for the wine pairings, which were sometimes surprising and definitely enhanced the delicious food.

We (and many others) think this is the best restaurant in Los Angeles. We go there for special occasions and enjoy the remarkably creative cuisine, all the delicious and perfectly cooked fish, the fascinating flavor combinations, the wonderful but low-key service. Every time we go there are some new delicious surprises. For a two-star Michelin restaurant it is still reasonably... 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.
