    From start to finish, the service and the tasting menu had been extraordinary. It’s our second trip and both times were for birthday celebrations for my wife. This second experience solidified Providence as our favorite restaurant.

    They reached out ahead of time to ask if it was a special occasion and when I mentioned it was my girlfriends birthday, I arrived to our own personal menus with printed “happy birthday” on it. When asked to keep the menus, they returned them in perfect ceran wrap cuttings. The service could not have been better, they were asking if the pace of the meal was ok, constantly sweeping my table and covering up any stains with napkins when I went to the bathroom. The bartender came out and prepared the drink in front of us. And at the end they beautifully organized our deserts to go and gave us some free granola which I put into a berry parfait. The following morning. Wonderful experience!!!

    The food overall was excellent - very creative and tasty. The only exception were the salmon and the wagyu beef, which were average. The service was great except when we gave feedback on the wagyu, the response was very snarky.

    My wife and I went here for our third anniversary this past weekend. From the beginning, it was a magical experience we had the honor of sitting at the chef's table and watching a bustling kitchen of focused, motivated chefs and sous-chefs prepare food until almost midnight. There are so many members that waited on us and insured that we were smiling during the entire dinner. The 8-course meal was exquisite although at least two or three other items were served. Definitely appreciate the option for a non-seafood item as part of the entree, but everything from the sashimi, oysters, lobster, to the duck, wagyu beef, and the mango dessert were succulent. Probably the best of wine I've had with any dinner as well. We wish we could have spent more at Providence. Please be prepared to spend at least two and a half hours to truly enjoy experience here.

    They offer one 8 course tasting menu. We had it with a wine pairing, one regular and one premium. It's worth spending a little more for the premium wines, each glass was better than the regular wine. The service was impeccable. I don't eat raw fish or meat, so they were happy to substitute the sashimi and tartare course for me. Each course was unique and delicious, and the sommelier was so knowledgeable.

    Great experience from start to finish. The valet wasn't there when we arrived but we saw him rush over, apologize, and welcomed us with a warm greeting. The host already knew our name on the reservation upon arrival. Watching the staff is like an orchestrated dance, they are all coordinated, polite, and knowledgeable. We have been to several fine dining tasting menu restaurants and this is definitely near the top of the lust

    Not only is thefood exceptional and beautifully presented, but also the entire experience is delightful. We were blessed to be served by Brian who has been with Providence almost as long as it has been open. We enjoyed time with Donato and Chef Michael as well. So happy to see this restaurant thrive throughout this difficult covid season.

    Providence is a long time favorite worth going every time we are in the area. You don’t need a special occasion as going here IS a special occasion. The food, the service, the attention detail so top of class. While the tasting menu is totally filling, a few custom adds like the Uni Egg and truffle pasta (do it as share plates mid course) are so worth the squeeze. Just plan to take the petite fours home with you. Top to bottom spectacular.

    It’s Providence. Some of the best seafood on earth at a premium price. But this humble diner believes it is worth every penny. Exceptional service as expected from a 2 star location and, on top of that, an absolute blowout of a main course selection. This is my second visit, and it is worth noting that the desserts were clearly less developed than those I had last time. Still good, but they pale in comparison.
