We had a memorable dinner at Providence. We chose the most expensive menu, and even if it was probably the most expensive dinner of my life, I do not regret it! It was simply unbelievable!

Made a special birthday dinner for my girlfriend. Great choice to really push it over the top for quite an event dinner. I am so glad that she was open to seafood as that is the main philosophy of this venue. The team really took great care of us. It helps to know people in the industry.

After hearing for ages that this is the #1 spot in LA for fine dining, I finally made it on 9/16/16 for lunch. They have a lunch offering right now only on Fridays, and you can do a la carte or a tasting menu. I choose the a la carte. What the menu doesn't reveal and to my delight, they... More

The restaurant is full of Asian foreigners who don't know better. The bill is too expensive, the food is too ordinary, the ambiance is too ugly. Do I need to say 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.
