We love this restaurant and it is always our choice on our way through little rhody, convenient location and satisfying food.

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

To be fair, I did not sample the food. I went because a friend highly recommended it but once there, the menu was simply too eclectic for me. The platings of other guests did look very nice. My complaints are that my friend and I first sat at a 2 top in the bar. A speaker was right above us,... More

I enjoyed an amazing dinner with a group of friends for a bachelorette party!! We had early reservations so there was plenty of lighting for us (not sure how dark it gets at night from other reviews written). I started off with a Grey Goose dirty martini ($9), that was probably the best one I've had! Started out with the... More
