Nestled within a hilltop village, Chapel Grille is a New England destination, the crown jewel of Rhode Island's top restaurants. Relax on our terrace overlooking the stunning panoramic views, the sunset washed Providence skyline and the beautifully lit bridges at dusk. The Chapel Grille Features hearth style cuisine and a Mediterranean Italian influenced menu focusing on locally foraged ingredients prepared with care and served with ceremony. Watch your pizza being fired in our Woodstone hearth oven while enjoying a glass of wine in our soaring cathedral bar or cozy up by the fireplace for a romantic dining experience second to none.

Bar area was good

The restaurant is very nice. We got there after the lunch service was dive but sat at the marble topped bar and ate from the bar menu. View was good, food was good. We liked it, we'll be back.

Chapel View has great atmosphere . I enjoyed one of the best dinners that I have had in a restaurant. The service was A+, the food was A+, the atmosphere was A+ , the bar area is A+, even the restrooms were terrific. It can be expensive but it is well worth every cent you spend. I highly recommend this... More

Had a very good dinner here. I had the paella. Excellent. Friend had pasta with shrimp. Excellent. Swordfish and salmon were also very good. The place has been fabulously renovated. I don't care for the chairs. A little too formal. The desserts are excellent. Great presentation. The service is not what it should be. Seem to be a lot of... More

I brought my mother and brother to lunch at Chapel Grille for my mother's birthday. This was our first time at Chapel Grille and we've been wanting to go for a while. Once we were inside, we wondered what took us so long to get there! Our waiter was professional and friendly. My mother and I had the Cleopatra Salad... More

We have been to Chapel Grille three times. First, when they had just opened and once with family and another time with neighbors. The food is good but not outstanding. The service has improved with experience. The decor and ambiance are outstanding.

Food and service to match a great building. Very attentive staff and half portions available for those of us who can't manage massive entrees. The fish chowder was one of the very best I have eaten. A worthy competitor for some of Providence's best restaurants.

Chapel Grille is absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is amazing. Hence the name "Chapel Grille", this restaurant was built in an old church, giving it the perfect atmosphere. This restaurant is very roomy and has beautiful outdoor seating during the summer. You would never guess you were in a parking lot. The staff if amazing, catering to your every need. Everyone...

We enjoy sitting in the bar area since it is a little more lively than the dining rooms. Outdoor seating cannot be reserved, so you need to go and wait for a table to open. The food is pretty good, but the atmosphere is why we come. There is a decent selection of drinks and wine. The menu offers smaller... More
