Had a very nice Sunday dinner in November. So, no outside seating. In a real bistro way, the menu is short. We focused on seafood - hake, salmon, swordfish. All well presented and flavourful. The salmon was pretty straight up. As in, a usual treatment. But, I suppose you need a couple of those on the card. Wine selection ample.... More

Stopped by this place for dinner with family. The atmosphere is friendly. No reservation is accepted and you might need a bit of patience. But please do trust the maître d who will get you situated in the right table. We tried the pork belly taco which was quite good. We also had the pea green salad which was really... More

I loved everything about this bistro. The service was excellent. We all had appetizers roasted Brussels sprouts done perfectly with sausage in a delicious buttery broth, pork belly tacos, and a huge roasted beet salad. All were presented beautifully. The entrees were equally delicious and we shared a dessert of apple turnovers with homemade cinnamon ice cream. There are special... More

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

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.
