Province Urban Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
We were appalled at the huge price and small portions. For an appetiser, we ordered fried green tomatoes for $8. We expected to get 6-8 pieces. We got TWO thin sliced. Then they brought bread to the table, once again, two thin sliced of sourdough with butter. For dinner my husband ordered chicken. It was the size of a cornished Jen and was just a puny leg and thigh with a few small slices of the breast. It came with a herbal rice. That's it for $24. I ordered some short ribs. I got 5 2x2" slices on top of some creamed corn. For $28!!! Needless to say we left hungry and went to Hard Rock Cafe and paid $25 more and ate well.
So pretty much a stale experience. The waiter was good. Nothing too spectacular or engaging. The place was very empty with horrendous dance music playing non stop and loud. The food left much to be desired. Overall I wouldn't recommend it and won't be going back.
I eat out a lot and the menu had a lot of common and favorite items like calamari and New York strip that you would expect at a place that has an upscale feel to it. I ordered the filet medium. It came to me rare with a massive amount of mushrooms which I don't like. I politely removed the mushrooms but a menu should state what you're getting if the amount of the item is dominant. They took the steak back to cook longer and it was cooked correctly when it came back but it was chewy for a filet. The calamari was so-so. It's a very cute place and the server was very nice but there was something off about it. You think you're getting a fine dining experience but it lacks the finesse to be one. But if you want a quick, casual meal where medium quality of the food is okay with you, then it will suit you fine.
Decided late to book here for a pre concert Dinner with my wife. I was not aware that it was part of Westin, and it advertised price point was in range. Usually I do not post negative reviews, however in this case, there were some issues. The service was slow...it took over 5 minutes after being seated to be acknowledged and offered water ( it was only half full). More importantly, I ordered NY strip that was way overcooked and poorly prepared. Of course they offered a 'do over', but by that time, to little to late. To their credit they did discount our bill. On a secondary note, was supposed to get bonus 1000 points from open table for eating there, which never have appeared!
Overall, do not think we will return
Went there with the mother-in-law and had a fantastic dinner. I highly recommend the avocado toast appetizer, and if you like banana's, the banana parfet desert was awesome. I had the Herb chicken and my wide and mother-in-law had the salmon. with the appetizers, I was too full to finish. I got two more meals out of the leftovers from mine and combining my wife and mother-in-law's leftovers. Grate place in your in Downtown Phoenix...
This was a great find for us. The prices were a bit high (figure $30+ per person), but the food was absolutely phenomenal. I had the chicken plate, and it was easily the best chicken I've ever had. The portions appear small at first, but they were perfect. The menu is full of healthy options that are both filling and satisfying, and there are plenty options that aren't as healthy that are just as good. The service was also great. Our waitress was attentive, quick to respond to requests, and she was able to keep on her feet despite our table's strong personalities. All-in-all, I'd highly recommend this place for a couple or a small group. I can't wait to return!
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.
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.
