We were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this new place. The food was great, service was all you could ever ask for and we were very comfortable with our grand-daughter. Give it a try!

We dine out regularly and have a more than passing knowledge of the local fare in the greater Providence area.  Our Saturday routine involves dinner with friends and a movie, as often as possible.  This week we decided to avail ourselves of 2Pauls Good Food which had opened for business this week past.

Cost for 4 with tip around $145.00

We sampled the following menu items:

From Scratch Soups: The chicken noodle soup @ $5.95 per serving.

From Salads:   Chopped Greek salad - @ $9.95 per serving

From Sandwiches:  Blackened tuna Steak @ $11.95

From Entrees:  East Providence Steak a la Mamma @ $20.95

From Entrees:  Pan Roasted Cod @ $16.95

From Entrees:  2Pauls Signature Shish-Kabob Platter Chicken @ $16.95

Service was of medium to slow, but that is easily explained by the newness of the establishment.

The chicken noodle soup: $5.95 - * 1 star

From scratch chicken noodle soup was served in a very large flat bowl which may have contributed to its being less than luke warm upon arrival.

The portion was small, It was very thin, there were no "noodles" in the chicken noodle soup..  There was a sparse amount of pasta, akin to chopped penne, along with chunks of both white and dark chicken meat. 

As stated, the soup was barely luke warm, the spoon was actually in the bowl, up to the handle when presented.  This is not a $6.00 bowl of soup. 

Chopped Greek salad: $9.95  - **

The salad was large and ordinary, with very large chunks of feta cheese tossed in.

Pan Roasted Cod: $16.95  * 1-star

Stated:  "Wild caught filet baked with roast potatoes in a broth of white wine, saffron, capers, olives and plum tomatoes"

Complete disappointment. 

This was a piece of cod fish, with sliced potatoes, served in what amounted to a thin tomato stew.  It was a stewed dish all day long.  No definition to the "roasted potatoes"  Just sliced potato floating about.  This dish is cafeteria like in quality and hospital food like in taste..

If there is saffron in this dish, it's well hidden.

Blackened tuna Steak: $11.95 (did not offer rating)

Review from the diner was okay. 

East Providence Steak a la Mamma: $20.95  ** 2 stars

Served on top of mashed potatoes the steak was fatty for a NY strip, and pricy when compared to the quality and presentation.

2Pauls Signature Shish-Kabob Platter Chicken:  $16.95  ** 2-stars

Here you will receive a very large portion of skewered chicken, served atop rice with typical greek yogurt sauce on the side for dipping.

It is a large portion of an average quality dish.

For our regular dining group 2Pauls Good Food will be a pass in the future.  One can dine at the 1149, for example,  which is just up the street, for a similar price and with a considerably better dinning experience, and more importantly much better table fare.

Perhaps better with time... but with the choices available in our area, 2Pauls Good Food is a miss.
