I'm not sure what's happening with this restaurant; maybe the chef is tired, or just the menu is, but it's time for some rejuvenation on the culinary and service fronts. The service is slipping a bit and the food preparation simply isn't as good as it was a year or so ago. Some of the ingredient combinations for the specials just aren't that appealing. Best to stick with food that's consistent, and that works. This is a beautiful restaurant that has ambiance in spades - especially with outdoor deck dining that showcases an amazing city view of Providence from afar. But the effort that was put into the setting, needs to be refocused into the kitchen.

I've been to Chapel Grille 5 or 6 times and have never been disappointed. On my last visit I tried the Lobster Ravioli and it was fabulous. It was fresh, warm and had the meat from a whole lobster claw on top. They offer great service, nice dining areas and a wonderful bar. If you haven't been, try it.

Chapel Grill is a great place. The decor, and ambiance is great. Went there for Mothers day with my wife and 4 month old. From the website we thought it was for Brunch and we thought it was kid friendly. We were sat in a booth, I had asked the host for a baby seat(table seat) and was told they didnt have any, because they were not safe. I know that Chapel Grill is not the best place to bring a 4 month old, but if they dont have a baby seat, then the website should't say kid friendly. Turns out that it was the Dinner Menu all day, which at noon I was not really looking for, but my fault, should have looked more closely beofre making the reservation.
Started with some oysters and Burrata caprese. Both were great. Next my wife had the Paella which was pretty good and I had the braised short rib. I thought the short rib was really good the rest of the dish was lacking. There was a califlower puree and also a few brussel sprout leaves. For 32$ I would think there would be more to the plate, maybe a starch or something. Left hungry. Overall a good experience and would go back
