Province Urban Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
First time visit here, to be near the Herberger theater for a 730 show. We'll definitely go again. The food was quite good. The service even better. Wine prices were steep. No bargain in price but it is downtown and a great location to get to by Metro Rail.
Brussel Sprouts that taste good! I never thought I'd live to see the day. You gotta know if they can make Brussel Sprouts tasty everything else must be incredible. Herb Chicken on Lentles.....excellent. Atlantic Salmon...excellent. Wine list...not extensive, but very good. Everything is well done and fresh.
Yes, it has a little bit of that hotel vibe. But still a nice place with a unique and fresh menu.
Service is great.
Validate parking in Westin parking lot.
All in all, a good place before a concert or the theatre.
My husband and I first encountered Province while on our honeymoon (we are locals to AZ, but love the Westin Downtown). The food is always spectacular, the atmosphere is modern & chic, and the staff is phenomenal. The manager checked up on us every so often, and when we came in the next time, he recognized us and gave us some special date night treatment. We went in this time for Sunday brunch, and it is by far the best breakfast we've found in Phoenix (and we are major foodies)! The Bella Benedict had a creamy, sweet yet salty hollandaise and my husband had an amazing Bananas Foster French Toast. We love every aspect of Province and we try to go at least a few times per year for special occasions.
I'll get straight to the point. The ambiance is nice, and it's on par price wise with other food in the area. The thing is, the service isn't very good for "better than average" dining. Also, while the food is prepared well, none of the flavors make you want to come back. I liked the short ribs. They were fork tender and juicy, but the flavor wasn't quite there. It was so mild all you could say was it was cooked well. That's the deal breaker for me. If I want to spend 300-400 dollars for someone's birthday dinner I want the food to be memorable. Everyone in my party agreed that it wasn't.
It is hard to find a place to eat before the opera or symphony. Province gets the job done. The room is relatively quiet for an early dinner and the menu has a bit of everything. It helps that the servers are friendly and efficient. Not the greatest but it sure beats most of the competition in that area.
Located in the Westin Hotel in downtown Phoenix. Convenient complimentary/free valet parking with validation in the restaurant. Nice setting. Very friendly staff. Great service. A little expensive for the portion size. The food was nicely prepared. Tasted fine. Everything is ala cart. If you are hungry or a big eater you will need an appetizer as the portions are a bit on the skimpy side and come without any sides.
The calamari are thick strips as opposed to the traditional rings. They were excellent. The shrimp was nicely prepared and consisted of 6 on a skewer over kimwah. Duck was just 2 small breasts and duck wrapped in skin. It was excellent but skimpy portion.
I would recommend this restaurant.
We all orderedsmall plates... all were delicious! Service lacking...had to ask for coffee refill and hot water refil for those drinking tea. Tea drinkers had to use same tea bag. The coffee was served in ice cold carafe so coffee was luke warm. Water finally refilled as we were paying check.
We decided on Province due to the decent reviews, location to the theatre and the gluten free options offered. Overall, we experienced an overpriced hotel restaurant with mediocre service and an over-inspired chef. The buffalo wings were just like any you'd get from a national chain - nothing different about them. The shoestring potatoes were very good, but we chalked it up to fresh oil and the fry size taking on the oil; though the fries weren't "oily" which was a surprise. We didn't bother with the broccoli cheddar soup - really? broccoli cheddar at this place? (Denny's has it too!) My shrimp entree over quinoa was okay, but the shrimp were dry and only slightly warm to cold. The quinoa was flavorful but with too many flavors overpowering the sweetness of the quinoa. My partner's steak came out with the onion rings on the top, which we specifically asked to exclude since she is Celiac. They returned it and made a new one which came about 10 minutes after I was done. Dinner together didn't happen, but the steak was good, not great. They gave us a discount for the mistake.
Service was very rushed when we sat down, even though there was light customer traffic. We purposefully didn't order the rest of our meal until midway through our appetizers to slow it down. She must have been used to hurried conference-goers and business people. She was friendly and apologized a number of times for the mistake (as did the manager). It did get busier on a Friday night, but there were tables available when we left at 7:30. Ambience was average in noise and atmosphere - the bar, with two TVs, seemed a bit overpowering as it was set about one or two dining tables away in the whole restaurant.
We had hope for an above average hotel restaurant experience, as some have been surprising to us. However, if we're in Phoenix again, we'll try another place and would recommend a different place than Province.
I came into Phoenix on Christmas Day and wanted to take my friend from Chicago who picked me up for a Christmas lunch. It was perfect. And then we saw the panda sculpture at the Art College around the corner afterward ... ABSOLUTELY PERFECT as we are Panda-Holics! Thank you.
This was the first time that we dined at this restaurant. Each item that we ordered was prepared in a unique way. The food was good. In contrast to other restaurants that we have gone to in the surrounding area, we found the prices to be just a bit higher. The décor is very modern and sparse. We dined on the patio which is very nice, but the noise from the cars on the street was definitely louder than we would have liked. The best part of the experience was our server. She was very nice and did not miss a beat. She made the entire experience much more enjoyable.
Really disappointing overall. First, the patio looks little like the picture. It's cold, industrial, right on the busy street (exhaust fumes were present). Second, the food was barely passable. My husband had two eggs, an assortment of meats, and fruit. NOTHING was seasoned. It was all terribly bland and the honeydew melon was his favorite part of the whole meal. I had the "pot pie". I put that in quotes because it was nothing more (I kid you not) than a link of sausage cut up, topped with a white sauce, covered with a disk of puff pastry. There were no vegetables...nothing. Just sliced up sausage and a ton of sauce. To be fair, the sauce was very good. My eggs were also unseasoned. As advertised, the coffee is Starbucks (burned, bitter). For a "health" friendly place I expected to see Stevia, but they only had the standards. We will definitely not go back.
The bartender was very friendly. The quality of the food was just OK. It seemed like your typical hotel restaurant...nothing special. We ordered a cheese plate and charcuterie plate. The prosciutto on the plate was so tough/thick that we couldn't eat it.
Great restaurant overall. Surprised when we got there to see it was located in the bottom of the Westin hotel-- don't let it sway you, it is very classy and private. The decor is simple and clean. My Mom had graduated earlier that afternoon so we wanted somewhere quiet to just enjoy with the family. Our waiter, Shamit was exceptional; he knew the menu and made sure our water glasses were never empty. I was not happy with my order and he made sure to get it fixed for me without giving me a hassle. Something little like that goes a long way to a paying customer- please send him our thanks. Warm smiles from the whole staff the whole dinner. Thank you for a great dining experience.
Overall the experience was pretty good. Didn't know it was in the Westin. Service was very attentive. Food was pretty good. An unfortunate aspect was that we ate outside. Very pleasant, but the lighting was nonexistent. While the NY strip was tasty, could barely see it. Candles did not work.
We were in town for a meeting and looking for a restaurant with good reviews near our location. This restaurant seemed to fit our needs. It is located in the Westin Hotel.
We were not very hungry due to a priori event. One of us had a salad and the other a white fish
Nicoise. The Nicoise was great and most different. We had a glass of wine and wished we had a larger appetite. Costs were very reasonable and like most restaurants in town, not very busy.
We enjoyed dinner prior to a local event. Food was very good. Menu leans on the healthy side. Portions are moderate with good use of spices and seasoning. Service was very good as the waitress checked in multiple times and saw that we very satisfied. Restaurant is on first floor of the hotel and just off the lobby. It has a nice size outdoor area but was too hot outside to enjoy while we were there. We enjoyed the dinner and will be back next time we are in Phoenix.
Comfortable, modern atmosphere. We shared entrees; fettuccini with garlic shrimp, and grilled salmon. Excellent. Ordered 3 sides to share, fantastic vegetables and cheddar grits that were superb. Our waiter was attentive, helpful. Entree prices are good; drink prices a bit expensive. We plan to return.
We were going to the opera and looking for a restaurant near the theater. We chose this place for its proximity to the venue. It was a pleasant experience, but a thoroughly average one: the food was just okay and the service the same. I had a vegetarian dish that was so mediocre that I left it half-finished, while my wife had a dish only slightly better. If one needs a place solely for convenience, this one's fine. Otherwise, I'd pass in favor of one of downtown's many sports bars.
We attended a play at the Orpheum and wanted something to eat someplace close. None of us had ever been to the Province Urban Kitchen, so thought we would try it. It was super early for dinner so there were very few people there. We all loved our meals and the service was great. I would definitely go back.
We went on Christmas night before a play. The timing was perfect as we told the wait staff where we were going and at what time it started. We had appetizers, salads/soups, main courses and shared a desert. All were terrific mixes and blends as well as beautifully presented. The wine list was very eclectic and we had four different glasses of wine that non of us had tried before but were recommended and enjoyed each. The have a separate list of "specialty" drinks but we did not have room for any of those.
A group of us went here before Garth Brooks... We picked it because, well it is super close to the light rail, and they had reservations available for a group of six. Great spot to sit outside and have a cocktail - we really enjoyed sitting in the courtyard, comfortable seats, great service, nice drink menu, if a little pricey. We checked in with the hostess when we arrived, 45 min early, and let her know we were waiting on the rest of our party, and looking to relax with a cocktail first. Which we did. It was. It was not busy night restaurant wise... Maybe 8 parties total, yet when we went back into the host stand at our designated reservation time, there was confusion over our table, they hurried to push two tables together, and those were not at the same height - off by a couple of inches. Set that hiccup aside, the food was really excellent - some favorites at our table... Pork shank, beef short rib, filet, the biscuits, plus the donuts for desert.
3 blocks for the Talking Stick Arena we dined her prior to the Garth Brooks concert. We chose to sit on the patio as it was among the 1st days where comfortable temps had arrived in Phoenix. There is a nice selection of Craft beers on the menu and we enjoyed a couple of those before ordering dinner. We were the only ones there for about an hour but our server was attentive and constantly checking on us. We ordered the Short Rib and the Garlic Shrimp entrees. The short ribs were the bomb, but I feel the shrimp were bland and under seasoned, however the underlying pasta and asparagus were excellent.
Good food and exceptional service. This restaurant is not all that huge considering it is a "hotel restaurant". The menu is small, but what food they have is good. Our waiter Oliver was particularly friendly and helpful. He made our dinning especially enjoyable.
