Little gem

Excellent quality food and service. Only drawback is the seating arrangement. There is a nice bar. But dining is banquette style, for the most part. Not a deal breaker, as it is window rich and has tall ceilings. Allowing this relatively small space to feel much larger. Owner and chef operated... read more

Great food, cocktails and service in a friendly, casual, neighborhood chef/owner run restaurant extremely popular with Rumford and East Side restaurant cognoscenti.

The meals are prepared for you when ordered. The freshest vegetables are used and the service is great. The space is limited but the for makes up for that. There is a bar that you can sit at also. It owner is there and if you have special requests they are usually met. Fantastic place.

We had reservations and were seated right away, good thing too since the place was packed within the hour. We split the fried oyster appetizer, the waitress offered to give us 6 instead of the usual 5 to make sharing easier. They were lightly battered (almost like an onion ring batter) with a sauce, tasty with a good presentation. My... More

I have been looking forward to eating here for quite a while, based on rave reviews from my spouse and friends. Ordered the dish my husband always gets; he goes there as it is close to work, and when the plate arrived I knew this was not what I expected. Some tasty lentils, a little swiss chard and a short...

I have travelled extensively and enjoyed all types of vacations/hotels/restaurants from extravagant to economical. My reviews are with an eye for understanding where I am in the world and that there are a world of differences. Our friends made reservations for dinner before we ventured to 'Fire Walk' in downtown Providence. They had done some preliminary research and felt that... More

This a small place, but worth the wait! Cool atmosphere with vaulted wood ceilings at the bottom of loft apartments. Brunch was amazing! Fresh fruit and an awesome omelet - the waitress was accommodating to my adjustments due to an allergy. Good drinks too! Definitely worth the money!

We go quite frequently, more often for a drink than for dinner. We kind of treat it as a great place for an on the way home drink. We usually go after their crowd starts to thin. Food is always good, though, locally sourced and inventive. My favorite is a grilled Marguerita Pizza, just the right crispness and incredible flavor.
