Perfect food ; amazing presentation ; lovely atmosphere ! The only downfall was the service . The server did not say her name (Jess) and was more interested in the bartender than her tables . Calm down honey; you're a waitress for a reason . Do your job right !

The restaurant is small but we apparently arrived at a good time because we didn't have a wait. The only thing I would be wary of is that it can get very noisy because it is so small. The food was sensational and presented as if we were at a gourmet, award-winning restaurant. Everything we ordered looked like it came... More

Despite having to get there early to ensure a good seat, we are never disappointed with the food that comes out of the kitchen or the specialty drinks from the bar. Just as many delicious appetizers as there are entrees. A favorite is the Crusty Hen with its' crisp skin and delicious couscous / veggie bed. The steak fritte with... More

Sophisticated cuisine at a reasonable price on Broadway? Say it ain’t so, Broadway Joe! Indeed it is, if you’re dining on Broadway on Providence’s Federal Hill. Broadway Bistro is a quaint little restaurant with large culinary ambitions that manages to keep your wallet intact. Think $15-20 entrees and you’ll easily be able to splurge for that cannoli you’re craving on... More

You will lick off your plate !!! I love the atmosphere. There are beautiful lit trees by the windows- beautiful . I love the truffles... More

We took a chance on an unknown and we are SO glad we did. The food was fresh and delicious. We tried some appetizers like tacos and gnocchi which had a uniquely healthier, lighter taste. Wonderful food. Great service. Highly recommend.

Never had been here, but the bar was fun, busy and the drinks unusual and delicious. After a couple, we decided we needed to eat and the food was great. Not fancy-schmancy, but good, well-prepared and yummy. And the staff was very patient as we laughed and carried on until almost closing. They made a night out with friends special.

We stopped in this place and the atmosphere was nice but VERY loud with the speakers they have, the drinks were good, but the food was just a bit below average, no seasoning or any real flavor to the food. This place is priced a little high for the food quality and for the quality of food at other places... More

A tiny bistro hidden in the heart of Providence hosts tasty fare. Unusual yet not bizarre. We shared an arugula salad, steak and a creme brulee with apricot puree. I actually closed my eyes when I tasted my food. The white wine was perfect..they have a full bar with interesting looking martinis. The prices were moderate to a bit pricey... More
