Providence: Too Rude for Me – I used to think Providence 57 was an upscale place. As someone living uptown, I really appreciated having a real dance club a short cab ride from the UES. I now have come to feel disappointed and even angered by the attitude coming from the staff. The guy who takes your $20 at the door doesn't even look at you, say thank you or respond if you say "hello." The drag-queen who stamps your arm is surprisingly rude. If fact, this past week, "she" carelessly stamped my palm without even looking at me or where "she" was stamping. I said, "Please stamp my wrist, I expect to go in and out of the club." "She" proceeded to stamp up my forearm multiple times and make a hand gesture for me to "run-off now, I'm done with you." Combine these two characters with bartenders that serve you when they want to acknowledge you, makes going there a disappointment. It saddens me really that the owners don't seem to value a good customer and allows employees to act the way they do. If you're going to run an upscale club, or any club for that matter, employees need to be trained to interact with respect.
Good times – I have been to this club a few times and have never been disappointed. Most recently, was there last night. Loved the music! Other things, like prices for cover and drinks, i think are typical club prices. The drinks are made well, and not watered down like i've experienced elsewhere. Granted, i always get there early enough to avoid cover charges and huge lines, so i dont know what happens at that time of the night outside, but inside is a good time :)
Oh my only issue was that a few of my friends had called and were told no jeans or sneakers for guys, but yet there were guys wearing jeans and sneakers(and not classy "prada" sneakers either!!!)!
From a neighbor – I live in the neighborhood and have been here many times with tourist guests and just my girlfriend, it is amazing. You have no idea how beautiful it is inside from the sidewalk, but the place is huge! The food has been excellent every time I've dined, and it is extremely reasonably priced, the prix fixe is 40$ or something and available on the weekends, which is unusual, but good if you're just hungry. The only thing is that they don't seat very late on the weekends, due to their club that opens later, but I like the club also, so it's no big deal. Seems to be getting a rap from some clubbers and people who want 3 courses in 60min, but it's definitely a great restaurant, especially for the area.
HORRIBLE BIRTHDAY EXPERIENCE – I booked my birthday here with a club promoter: JAMES SCOTT. We talked about a week in advance about the whole event and he told exactly what i should expect, which was: my own guestlist, free bottle of champagne (since i had 10+ people), and no waiting in line when we arrive. WELL, NONE OF THIS WAS GRANTED. I arrived with my friends at 11pm went to the bouncers and told them i booked my party here and had a guestlist..they told me they didnt know the club promter and didnt care that it was my bday and to get in line like everyone else! They were extremely rude and kept yelling "i dont care who you know or who you're with get in line". SO my friends decided to get in line while i called Mr. Scott to complain bc WTF?! its my birthday! He tells me his sidekick JEN will come out and get me. SO..while we're waiting for Jen to come out which takes forever..we manage to get to the front of the line. The short bouncer starts flirting with my friend and because i was upset that NOTHING WAS GRANTED AS PROMISED AND BECAUSE OF THE EXTREMLY RUDE BOUNCERS i said "yea she likes midgets anyway"...and well that was a wrap. He said "get off the line..no one is getting in" FINALLY this Jen girl comes out and i tell her the story and instead of helping me she just chilling with me and my friends!!!
Worst experience in NYC club...ive been to a lot better places...tenjune, mansion, guesthouse and have never been treated like that. I DONT RECOMMEND THIS FOR PARTYING AND ESPECIALLY FOR BIRTHDAYS. AND IF JAMES SCOTT AKA J.SCOTT INVITES YOU....RUN!!!!!
Horrible Experience – Well how can I start this? I am a person (leaving name out) of importance in PA
I made reservations to Providence around 8:30. I loved how eloquent it looked and the privacy me and my wife had here. We sat down and looked over the menu. Since we just came from Stout's and had a little snack and drinks before Providence we decided that we would take the 3 course meal. I would eat the main dish and she would eat an appetizer. She gets the appetizer which was done fancy but my wife didn't like it because they used some kind of mayonnaises on the salad. The time was around 8:50 when she got the salad. I ordered her some calamari, which came out in 7 minutes and was good. We had some drinks and around 9:35 I finally got my barbeque chicken (1 hour and 5 minutes later after a RSVP). Anyway I cut the chicken and it had no flavor and tasted like it wasn't done. I immediately told the waitress after I had a bite to eat, that it had no flavor and it tasted like it wasn't cooked. Here is the kicker, she asked me if I wanted anything else and I declined. She brings me the check 10 minutes later and walks away immediately. I look at the check and they gave me a discount on 1 drink (yes 1 drink free). When she comes back over I ask her to speak to the manager. A manager comes to the table 10-15 minutes later, being real cocky. I tell him about all the events you just read. He tells me I have eaten all the food here and it tastes fine to me. I go back and forth with him about his taste, which are not like mine and don't you and should you always agree with the customer and show some respect to them if they have a complaint. I was ready to walk out the whole place but paid my bill anyway because I didn't want to get arrested in NY. But I will say this, would I recommend anyone to eat at the lavish, expensive restaurant. THE ANSWER IS HELL NO.
PS: The only good thing about this place is, the CLUB was excellent and I had a ball with my wife.
One of NY's Best Rest... – One of New York?s best restaurant.....I love it. The service was superb. Food is exceptionally presented & prepared. When I first walked into the restaurant, I wasn't very impressed with the decor,it's very simple. But when you enjoy the first dish you'll love this place!
I ordered the curried lobster tail, the best lobster ever had before.
It is a MUST place to celebrate a special occasion. like we did!
-100% customer service – i am a person of service i like to make sure my people are satisfied 100%
but we were bambuzoed we were there be4 12am but no1 told us we had to get online we waited for the promoter found him he did nothin to satisfy us we did not even get in for free but we were there for about 30 mins be4 12am we finally got in and we all started complaining why we was paying 20.00 to get in if we were there already so we spoke to a lady that said she does not deal with us getting in but yet she was willing to let 8 out of 16 of us in free if we buy 4 services but yet she is not in charged of that right so anyway they gave us a hard time no 1 was there performing or nothing to charge us that if we were there be4 12am that was the point of us leaving early wowowowo i did not like the customer service but i did enjoy myself cuz i had to lolol people do not know how to comprimise with others they should really not b in charge of nothig at all right ?
bad... – Don't go here... trust me... AND DO NOT LISTEN TO ANY PROMOTERS THAT PROMOTE THIS PLACE. They straight up lie to your face.
