“Eating in style!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We have eaten at Chapel Grill several times and enjoyed every visit. This time we had a group of 8 , 4 couples. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the appetizers we ordered for the table. The only reason I would not give it five stars, is that I feel, the meals could be be slightly larger. The salads are very small, considering the price. One of our friends had a steak snd had to order a side of potatoes, since it was served alacarte. This may cause a decrease in repeat customers.

“Nice Upscale Restaurant with History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

This Restaurant was a Chapel for the Rhode Island Training School for boys transformed into a beautiful restaurant.

The atmosphere is elegant and it can get pricey for Dinner. It has a view of the Providence and East Coast Shoreline in the distance. The portions are small however the food quality is good.

I like it for drinks and appetizers. Both are very good and the bar area has a loft. It is casual and less expensive. You get the most bang for the buck.

Give it a try as you will either like it or hate it. Worth going at least once for the history of the building.

“No value at this establishment.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

There must be a shortage on lettuce as there was less than a cup served with my entree salad along with 5 almonds and three slices of strawberry! The goat cheese was non existent. I requested more and they did bring me additional though. However they skipped our table for bread all together. Not worth the price, there is no value at all. Service although professional we were never checked on once the food was delivered. I won't be back.

“Very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Enjoyed an early dinner at the bar to make for a quick meal. Lovely atmosphere overlooking the terrace and the ambiance of the whole restaurant is delightful. Ordered scallops which were perfectly cooked and lightly but well seasoned with a delicious veggie mix side (a departure from the usual) and rice, accompanied by delicious warm bread with a flight of 4 olive oils (California, Greek, Italian and Spanish). Friendly and unobtrusive but attentive service.

“Will never go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Ordered the special grilled trout. It was butterflied and char grilled . All one could taste was the burnt flavor from the grill. The manager proceeded to tell me it was supposed to be blackened .
He was arrogant and totally wrong, asking me if I knew what blackened was. Fortunately I am a reasonably good cook and am very much aware of what blackened is and burnt it is not.
