Took my wife for our anniversary dinner and she loved it. You have to try the chef's tasting menu. The wagyu was the best. The price was bit pricey but it was worth it.

Providence may well be the best dining experience that I have had outside of Paris. It features a tasting menu that is mostly focused on seafood, changes regularly and is always wonderful. Don't forget the wine pairing.

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

Carpeted interior, although you'll be near other diners it won't feel like it. Super intimate.
