Providence Review

Chef-owner Michael Cimarusti has elevated Providence to the ranks of America's finest seafood restaurants. The elegant dining room, outfitted with subtle nautical accents, is smoothly overseen by co-owner–general manager Donato Poto. Obsessed with quality and freshness, the meticulous chef maintains a network of specialty purveyors, some of whom tip him off to their catch before it even hits the dock. This exquisite seafood then gets the Cimarusti treatment of French technique, traditional American themes, and Asian accents, often presented in elaborate tasting menus. Pastry chef David Rodriguez's exquisite desserts are not to be missed; consider the six-course dessert tasting menu.

    Great replacement at Patina location

    We've gone for special occasions a few times and had fabulous meals. It is pricey, but definitely some of the best food in LA. I love the atmosphere as well.

    Greatly disappointed

    Very disappointed. The food was mediocre. Beatiful space, high prices and nothing special with regard to the food. My husband and I would never go back and we dine out 5 nights a week.
