    We had the special of the night, 9oz tenderloin with 2 stuffed shrimp. Food was delicious. The only complaint would be it was soooooo loud in there! There was a party of 30 right behind us and they were extremely loud and obnoxious. They should of been in their own room. Other than that, it was good.

    When we were seated, someone asked is we would like water. When our server came , she asked if we knew what we wanted and finally realized that we were not given menus. She asked if we wanted a drink and proceeded to tell us about the specials. Two of the four meals were Surf and Turf and one was supposed to be medium well and the other was supposed to be rare. The medium well was labeled rare and was cooked medium rare. The rare one was labeled medium well and was cooked well. We sent back the one cooked well. One of the sides for those two meals were not delivered until we were practically finished. The manager came over and apologized. There was no compensation for the mix ups and the meals were not cheap!

    Have been to Chapel Grille and food is good...but whew, it was crazy Sat night (think there was a HUGE party somewhere)...service and noise level started out fine but by 7 it was really bad...noisy, servers literally threw the spoons for our dessert on the table (one short) and they just lost it. I know it was Family Weekend at Brown so we specifically left Providence hoping it would be less crazy in Cranston. Guessed incorrectly. Would return but never on a Sat night (assume Friday night is just as bad). Unfortunate since we had out of town guests...

    It is like your in a fairy tale and the set is gorgeous. Can't believe the work that was done to bring this alive. Would love to share this with my daughter. Lovely presentation of the building and the food. The chefs were having a competition as to which one would sell the most of their special entree of the evening. I hope the 2 lb. stuffed lobster won because is was heavenly. And, the triple chocolate mousse was excellent. My husband loved his chocolate martini...said that could have been dessert all by itself. 3.5 hours flew by....look forward to going back.

    Chapel Grille is lovely, the decor is stunning, menu reads well but is pricey and portions are skimpy. This was the second time our group met there but it will be the last. There are other places in the area that are more reasonable and the food is better.

    When I dine at Chapel Grille, I always request a certain table. I did this when I made the reservation and when I arrived they said it was reserved for someone. I realize this is not major but it is to me.

    The restaurant is always busy (at least on Saturday evenings). The tables are quite close and the service was a little slow. Considering the number of people there, it is really not THAT bad. I wished the service was a little quicker. Food was good, the specials ended up being the most expensive items. Overall, it is a great place to be on a first date because it does not make you look cheap.

    Went for our anniversary last week, enjoyed very much. The service and food were outstanding. Thanks very much to our server Michael and his assistant George! Atmosphere was very busy and maybe even a bit loud, but probably because there was a large party next to us. However, the service, food and the view made up for it. Beautiful location, interesting layout and interior design. We would love to go back again and will do so soon.

    We were very excited to try this restaurant. We got there and much of the menu was unavailable for two people and required a larger group to order. The service was subpar but the manager was very nice. The food wasn't very good but it was okay. I would give it three out of five stars. Bad service, food that wasn't great, extremely limited menu for only two people, and very pricey... I am not sure if I would recommend Chapel Grille yet to anyone, it could certainly use some work.

    We were able to make a reservation on very short notice for the same evening. The table was close to a window where we had a great view of the city. The food, service and view were excellent. The only negative part of the evening (and I realize this is almost impossible for the restaurant to control) was that the noise level was quite excessive with others around us saying the same. However, the quality of the food and service was so good that we will go back.

    Hadn't been there in awhile but wanted to show my niece the great interior design. Was a bit concerned since reviews are mixed. All 5 of us thought our meals were great. Pumpkin bread pudding was a huge hit. Our server was great,very pleasant and attentive. Only complaint was that we had a booth near the kitchen door and the plate banging noise was quite distracting. Next time, we will ask for a table on the right hand side of the dining room.

    Place had potential, but we were placed in the outside bar area that was VERY noisy. We asked to be moved because of the noise and were moved further away in the same room. Waitress was very nice and well meaning, but food service was SLOW, and not well timed (how long does it take to put soup in a cup?). Most of the food ended up being pretty good, but timing and abiance were big detractors. Plenty of other places to go to. Unlikely I would be back.

    We were in Providence for the night and Chapel Grille was recommended by a friend. Driving through not the best of neighborhoods, and arriving at a strip mall, we were very pleasantly surprised when we saw then entered Chapel Grille. A tastefully done and ample space, with a cathedral ceiling and a working fireplace, a nice bar, and outdoor seating (we sat inside as the weather was bad). The food was excellent , the wine list reasonably extensive with many good choices, and the service professional (though a couple times needlessly conversation disruptive.) There were not many diners so it was very easy to enjoy a relaxed conversation. It was a very enjoyable evening. For where it is I'd dare say that Chapel Grille is an outstanding choice.

    Dined on 9/21/2014
    I am so happy that brunch is back at Chapel Grille, and even better than it was before! Now you have the choice of a buffet, or the traditional a la carte menu with new options on it. All 4 of us did the buffet, and we had so much to choose from. There was the typical breakfast foods, an omelet station, a pasta station, a carving station, desserts, and more! The smoked salmon was a favorite for all of us. I would highly recommend brunch at Chapel Grille, whether for a simple meal or a special celebration. The restaurant itself is beautiful, and the staff is great. Give brunch a try, you won't regret it!

    The restaurant was notified through Open Table that I am a vegan. I got two choices when I got there. A chicken dinner without the chicken and a scallop dish without the scallops. That was a bit disappointing since I paid full price for a scallop dinner without the scallops which meant my dish was a dollop of rice with minimal veggies. It was acceptable but not a "do over." I don't anticipate returning to the restaurant.
