Extraordinary does not sufficiently describe our delight. From the moment when I made the reservation, I was treated by the woman who took it with both courtesy and good humor, that is worth noting. She was so pleasant. I begin with this because throughout the several hours of this dining experience , each and every staff member was extremely knowledgeable... More

Providence offers wonderfully fresh, carefully prepared seafood that is a joy to look at and, of course, to eat. The crab cakes were fluffy, light and served warm. My salmon was also cooked to perfection, gently flaking away on touch. I also enjoyed the various additional tasting morsels served between courses. The mussel foam, for example, was rich and creamy... More

With two Michelin stars Providence probably doesn't need my review but I did want to comment on it. We dined ar Providence two nights ago (April, 2017) to celebrate our companion's 85th birthday. It turned out to be one of the most monumental meals we have ever experienced. We selected the seven course menu which ended up including three amuses... More

We were at Providence, for the first time, to celebrate a friend's birthday. We chose the 7 course prix fiixe menu, but in reality with the little extra appetizers and the little extra desserts, there are more than 7 courses. Only one choice to be made (among salmon, duck and beef; we chose the salmon). All marvelous. The service is... More

One of the best in terms of food, service, and ambience but quite pricey. Their course meals are your best bet

I cannot think of anywhere in Los Angeles to go for a special celebration dinner. The ambience, the extraordinary foo, exceptional wine list and attentive service all makes for a really exquisite dining experience. Providence is flawless in how you are greeted and treated from the moment you walk into the restaurant. Prepare to be transported for an evening. Worth... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
