Province Urban Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Excellent food and service.
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.
After the Orpheum
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.
Peaceful downtown place to eat with great food
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.
wonderful courtyard and very good food
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.
Great Pre-game/show Spot
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 ...
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.
A pleasant surprise
I don't expect great food in a hotel restaurant, so I was pleasantly surprised by Province. The trout was absolutely superb. It was a beautiful warm night, and the outside seating area is pleasant, especially for being in the middle of downtown. the waterfall masks much of the traffic noise, and it was an altogether pleasant experience.
Embarrassed For Them...
the service at brunch today was HORRENDOUS. it was me and three other ladies. all too polite for our own good. we all sent at least one item back. our waters and coffees were not attended to . we had to ask for every retail. then when we asked for a pitcher of water [since there was four of us and the glasses were small] you would have thought we asked for the moon. our waitress was extremely neglectful. she made us feel like we were a hassle and she rolled her eyes [!!!!!!!!!!!!] and yapped about how tired she was and how she couldnt remember the soup of the way. she also was making recommendations off the BREAKFAST menu even though they had already stopped serving breakfast. then she came over to tell us she was going on a break and another lady would be "taking over" . we never saw that lady. when we made complaints about the food, the manager literally brought over a copy of the menu and tried to tell US we were wrong about what the dish should include! it was bizarre and almost comical. we were starving and we had valeted our cars so it seemed like a hassle to leave . needless to stay we stayed and ate a bit. but left very dissatisfied
The outdoor music was moved indoors because of the weather. In spite of asking the DJ to lower the music (twice) this was a detriment to good conversation. We feel that music in a restaurant should be pleasant, background and non-disruptive and we PICK our restaurants accordingly. We have been to this restaurant previously and have not run into this situation. When it was obvious that we (4) were going to leave to find another place, an accommodation was made.
My daughter and I enjoyed a quiet early dinner.
The outside seating with fire pit and waterfall were relaxing. We ordered martinis, appetizer, then waited awhile to order our salad, then ravioli and risotto- (to die for). The waitstaff was friendly and timed their attention to us perfectly. We didn't know you could enjoy and outdoor meal in Phoenix, downtown!! Of course, it was early on a Sunday evening! Would love to visit again and stay at the hotel.
Came in for dinner and had a lovely time--our server was so friendly and knowledgeable, and all of the food was just delicious. We especially enjoyed the tomato-basil soup, the trout and the roast chicken. And we loved the outside patio! Simply a great experience.
Came for brunch, stayed for lunch
While we were looking for a brunch, we were quite happy with the lunch menu at Province. The wait staff was always discretely available, friendly, and helpful. The place was relatively empty, which probably makes sense for a Sunday lunch time. Their execution of a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup was superb. I've seen great restaurants fail at simple fare.
Food was good, service excellent, ambiance--meh.
This was a hotel restaurant so the ambiance was not much to speak of. That said, the service was excellent and the food turned out to be quite good. Our dinner was on New Year's Eve so there was a price fix menu--the taste and presentatoin were very nice.
Great dining experience
My daughters and I dined at Province prior to a downtown event. The reservation process was easy, the service was prompt and attentive and the menu featured a dynamic range of creative options including a 'chefs inspiration' that was extremely well prepared. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was perfect for us to visit without having to compete with external distractions from other tables (the room was somewhat full when we where there).
Girls Night Out
My girlfriends and I like to try out new places for our get togethers. Province was on the localdines list and had received great reviews. Upon arriving, a very friendly valet person took care of parking, and we were sitting within minutes. We like the modern decor, and hip feel of the dining room. The menu is small, which I prefer and our waitress Genia made great recommendation. We all ordered different main courses, we had steak, butternut squash ravioli, grilled chicken on kale. The special for the nigh, the sheperd's pie was delicious. The desserts where good, nothing too exciting. What we liked best was that the restaurant was quite, we were able to hold a conversation without the need to shout.
Completely changed my bad day! A perfect place!
Met friend for drinks/dinner after a bad, bad day and sat outside to wait for her. Patio lovely! Waterfall, fire pit, heaters. Watched sky change from dusk to midnight blue to black and then saw stars. Staff very attentive and waited on me hand and foot. Some restaurants won't wait on a solo diner until the rest of the party arrives. Friend arrived and ordered a margarita. This is her test-- if the place has a good margarita the place is good all around. Not the way I rate, but everyone has her own gig. I ordered a Cosmo and found it just s touch too sweet, but I did order a second (bad day, remember?) and requested it be paler pink. We ordered the sea salt chips and calamari to start. House-made chips and old fashioned onion dip were terrific and fun! Calamari was good. Small pieces in crispy batter. Dipping sauce was a pickle-something that was a bit off-putting so we requested any other sauce they could bring and it was brought within a minute. She ordered the butternut squash entree and I ordered the shrimp scampi. We split each and I found both to be flavorful. The shrimp was cooked to perfection, not overdone. Almost melted in my mouth. After dinner was coffee for her and it smelled so good I nearly ordered a cup--- except my hazelnut chocolate martini was the perfect ending for me. I left satisfied, relaxed, and renewed.
