Such a beautiful spot, could be so much more. Great atmosphere, service, and drinks and that's about it. The food took forever to come out and was lacking quality, taste, or flavor. We ordered the Oyster Rockfellar and the chicken and waffles. The Oysters were...lacking any stuffing and were cold. The chicken and waffles were some drum sticks on an eggo waffle with little flavor or presentation. For the cost you expect chef quality food but you receive less than a chain quality. The main entrees were awful. We ordered a burger cooked medium-well that came out rare with an odd taste and flavor to it (also very cold), we also ordered a steak frites cooked medium that came out black and blue (burnt outside, raw inside) also cold served with fries and the presentation and taste (one bite) was awful. We arrived at 3, left at 4:45 starving. The pace of receiving the food and no time to wait to have it remade left us leaving very unsatisfied. The drinks for the bar were amazing and so was our server but if ambiance is what is getting people in they need more than that to get people to come back.More

I love rooftop restaurant/bars and was excited to try one in Providence while visiting. It was hard to catch a vibe here. There was a mixed crowd where I feel it wasn’t really sure what clientele it was meant for. The views were great but...we’re hard to see when sitting. The sofa chairs and tables were set so low they were hard to eat off comfortably. Service was great, food over priced and mediocre at best. Got gnocchi with chicken and the chicken was so dry and tasted like something frozen out of a bag. Husbands steak was over done. Portions very small for price. Chocolate cake also tasted as if it was sitting in a freezer. I feel this restaurant has so much potential but needs some work. In the kitchen and all around. Very messy and confused as a table next to us had teens with parents wearing over sized sweat shirts and jeans on, another with an older group dressed to the nines. A few tables with groups of trendy girls, and my husband and self somewhere in the middle. Will I return? No. Recommend to make your own opinion.More

Such a fun night! Food and view were both wonderful -- our server, John was so personable, funny, super attentive...there were thunderstorms coming our way and he made sure we had a place to go in case our outdoor seats were rained out (storm passed...so we got to stay outside). The fire pit was lovely, really enjoyed our night out. We will be back!!More

Fully expected this place to be just a trendy cute place but the food shocked me. Some of the best on the trip! We got cocktails & shared appetizers. We got glazed carrots, brussels, tempura shrimp, fries, margherita pizza & deviled eggs. All so good!!!

Combine great food and the opportunity to sit beside a fire in late fall and it adds up to a great experience. Scallops were perfect and the presentation made my mouth water just looking at it. Our waitress was a joy and added to the...evening.More

We found this place close to our hotel on the first evening of a short visit to Providence. We were immediately enchanted by the rooftop view (it didn't hurt that there was a beautiful sunset). We were waited on and served pretty quickly.. The house...Caesar salad was uniquely flavored (and our very helpful server, Joshua, was kind enough to find out the ingredients). Both my lumaconi pasta and my wife's duck and fig flatbread were also delicious were also delicious and the portions were large enough for another meal. We saved room for dessert and had the ice cream brownie sundae, another house specialty--excellent. And the bill was remarkably reasonable, especially considering the size of the portions. Much has been said in other reviews about the fire pits, their cost, and their availability.. After we paid our bill, we wandered over to one of the fire pits and admired the last of the sunset. We did not ask permission, we did not order any food or drink while we were there, and we stayed maybe 15 minutes. No one told us we shouldn't be there (that said, there were only a few other customers in the and none in the firepit area). It was a nice conclusion to a pleasant dining experience.More

Our 8 person party had an indoor reservation booked and we were subsequently sat outside at a fire table that didn’t work. We asked to be moved to an indoor table and were moved to a fire table that required a $500 minimum purchase before...tip. We were moved AGAIN to a freezing table in the corner of the outdoor rooftop where a manager gave us lackluster lip service that he would “do his best” to try to seat us at the indoor table we had originally booked. We NEVER saw him again. The food was palatable. The staff was uneducated. A waiter confidently served us pork belly and told us it was pimento cheese… The bathrooms were also filthy and a safety hazard based on the amount of urine on the floor. 10 out of 10 would not recommend.More

The good: The staff, the manager. Really lovely people people. I brought over some friends who just past the 50 year marriage mark, and when I told the server, she brought a (warm) but celebratory bubble glass. That was a sweet touch that earned her...21% tip. The deviled eggs were great, and the crudo was nice. Not memorable, but well prepared. Box garden is lovely. The bad: The cushions are past their prime, so outdoor seating with a fire pit (that I pre-ordered and was supposed to get $75 applied to my ticket and DIDN"T but I didn't feel like arguing with them) is uncomfortable and past its prime. The views are less than urban... but we were outside. The burger for $18 was meh at best but they did accommodate a fried egg (OVERCOOKED) and a rare burger was closer to medium. Fries? Beh, and their sauce? Only they can love it. Its ok. The cheese board for $18 should either be on a smaller board so that you can't dwell on how skimpy it is, ditto for the charcuterie board. The little bottles of champagne need to go in a glass of ice, because it became warm very quickly. The ugly: Covid people. Social distancing is not in their vocabulary and the place packs. Sure its outside. But people don't need to be on top of each other... But to each their own. I will still get checked on Tuesday just in case, and I'm vaccinated. I wanted to be outside and that was cool. I wanted to love the place, but I didn't but I'm not going to say its all that bad either. If I were a college kid again, I would think its great.More

We came for the great views of Providence but stayed for the excellent food and service. The outdoor setting is a very welcome option given covid. Sometimes you sacrifice the quality of the food for a view, but not here—everything we had was exceptional, especially...the tempura rock shrimp. The menu is big enough that everyone can find something that they like and it's easy to mix and match small and large plates. Looking forward to returning in the future.More

Discrimination and racism at its best. If you’re white, this place loves you. If you’re black—think twice. On a nice summer Friday evening my boys and I decided to step out for a night out on the rooftop. We had all been here before but...yesterday was different and a true representation of this racist establishment being run by racists managers. Yes I said it, RACIST! We did not think we’d be met with push back when we decided to sit near the fire pit. As soon as we sat down, the manager walked over and asked us to relocate spots or pay $75 per person to sit there. We thought that was a little ridiculous and were fine relocating. I have no problem paying but that just didn’t sound right. After a while we notice three middle aged white women sit there. Still hung up on the ridiculous $75 requirement, we took it upon ourselves to ask the ladies if they had to pay to sit there. They were confused and confidently told us “No, in fact we’ve never had to pay to sit at this specific table.” Regardless, this is all we needed to hear to KNOW exactly what kind of racist managers we were dealing with. If there were 0 stars to give I absolutely would. THEY DONT LIKE BLACK PEOPLE!!! this new manager and establishment needs to be held accountable and seriously reconsider their staff.More

My third time here I usually like the environment. But yesterday we had the worse experience ever. Myself and two others friends were there having some drinks and appetizers then at end of the night we decided to go sit outside by the fireplace ....So the manager apparently decided to go up to us and lie that we have to pay $75 to sit there . Not that we couldn’t pay but found it exaggerated and left . Maybe people of color have to pay to sit in a cool area ?! Discrimination?! We didn’t feel right about it and spoke with other people that sat at the table with the fireplace a few minutes later and they told us they never got charged to sit there. Sadly but my last time there .More

Came to the Rooftop after a recommendation from a friend, and very glad I did! The view was incredible and so was the ambiance...very chic with comfy leather chairs and the firepits outside added to the cozy feel despite being winter. A good portion of...the restaurant is enclosed in glass so you can enjoy the view while still being warm. They have super cute igloos outside too. I was worried it was one of those places that focus on just the "look" but the food, drinks, and service were all spot on. My new fave for sure!More
