We stumbled across this place while riding around looking for somewhere to eat WITH parking. It was a great find. It was a intimate setting with great service. 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.

We've been here multiple times. It's one of those places that I wouldn't mind driving over an hour for its food. Delicious and great prices. Ribs and grits is a absolute must-try.

I came on a Saturday night with a reservation of a party of 6 for 8:30. Kindly called and changed it to 9 with no problems. Was seated and told the specials of the day, our server (I believe Emily) was kind as she started to take our orders. The place was quiet and not many people around, probably because... More

The restaurant consists of a small bar area, a separate and small dining room, and several outdoor tables. While the dining room is small, it never feels like you are sitting on top of the people next to you. Indoor seating is preferred as the outdoor tables are on a busy road with many lots of activity close to your... More

This is a nice, little restaurant in the heart of west Providence. Nice atmosphere for a weekend night with friends or a date. The food is different, probably not a good choice if you're with kids. Nice, little out of the way restaurant.

Thank Heather R
