I enjoyed the casual setting and the fresh well prepared food. I look forward to going back again . There were so may things on the menus that looked appealing it was hard to choose.

This is a very popular restaurant, always seems to be crowded. Nice dark lighting, full bar. Small enough to be intimate yet still great scene. Definitely worth a night out here.

Finally got to come here after hearing good reviews about this place. They re usually full most of the time but also it's a small place with not that much seating. Got here early one evening and was empty then. They take reservations if you are 6 or more but otherwise it's first come first serve. Things I like about... More

While traveling from out of town for Christmas, I went here with three family members. I called initially to see if they take reservations for four. They do not but the woman who answered the phone promptly and warmly, assured me there should not be a problem being seated or obtaining street parking at the date and time of my... More

Vegetarian options (pasta dish, usually), but the ingredients are diverse and prepared full of flavor. Excellent kitchen and fine waitstaff.

The menu was interesting....I couldn't begin to tell you whats on it....unusual stuff! We had a chicken meal, a fish (Hake) meal and the house gnocchi which were all very good. I... More

Great evening with friends and delicious meals. The ribs and grits were a must for an appetizer. The Monk Fish was very, very good! Wait staff was friendly and accommodating for our party of 8.

This was a cozy spot for an evening out with my husband. The cocktails were unique and yummy. The food was excellent quality and not your standard dishes. For example, I had a salmon dish but it was wrapped in phyllo dough and had coconut milk, cashews and lentils. A tad too salty but overall an enjoyable dish. Would definitely... More

My wife and I have been here several times and will be coming back again. I would never have tried something called "Crispy Cauliflower with Kale" anywhere else and it is delicious! My chicken was superb and her monkfish was equally delightful. This bistro lives up to its reputation among locals as a great place for dinner and I am... More

The Ribs & Grits are fabulous. Second time visiting Providence and most certainly made visiting Broadway Bistro a must do for my trip.
