    We enjoyed everything about our dining experience except for one issue. Our appetizer had chicken in it and there were chicken bones. We informed our waitress and she informed her boss. The manager came to our table to express his apologies. If you want to separate yourself from the competition, he should have taken the item off the bill!

    The food was fabulous. I had the Paella and it was one of the best I have ever had. Started with the Cleopatra salad and the ingredients were some of the freshest I have had. We were seated in the bar area and it was very noisy. Have been there before and every time I booked through open table was seated in this area. Not sure if this is where the open table reservations are always located or that was just how it happened to work out.

    From the moment we walked in the door, Chapel Grille was inpressible. The exterior walkways and decorations are beautiful. As soon as you enter, the ambience and environment is stunning. A beautiful two floor dining area, with the second level overlooking the bar. Wonderful decorstions, and the pleasant, comfortable seating is great. The staff is exceptionally pleasant, helpful, and courteous. Our waitress went out of her way to ensure we got excellent service, even though she was high tasked with many tables. The food was outstanding. From the appetizer through to desert, each dish was presented beautifully and had incredible flavor. I would highly recommend Chapel Grille.

    First time ever going and I really enjoyed the food. Only con was the seating arrangement. Looks like they tried to jam up too many tables in one seating area and we were way too way to the next table and I had no room behind me. Didn't complain but Just make sure this doesn't happen and you get moved.

    The restaurant for a Monday night was a little busy, this usually says a lot for a restaurant. Our food seemed a little rushed and not timed very well. the waitress was not very schooled in the wine menu and needed some help from us with this. Finally the wait staff Assistance was a little "rough" around the edges and not very personable when presenting the different Olive Oils to the table. We had questions and just shrugged them off and walked away..... If I can have a different wait staff, I would give it one more try!

    My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. There were many wonderful choices. The sirloin was cooked to perfection and there was a wonderful amount of seasoning on the sides. Service was good, even with it being a crowded Saturday evening. The prices are moderately high but well worth it!

    This was not the first time we had been there to eat and the other times I would have given them a raving review. This time they were 15 minutes behind our reservation time then tried to sit us at a table that was so close to the other tables that you could not pull the chairs out. When we told them we could not sit there they made us wait for another 15 minutes while they sat reservation after us. Once we got a table the service was five star and the food was excellent

    I had been to Chapel View once before and found it to be Excellent on all points. So I was suprised that there was seating upstairs, which was more casual, than the dining room, which I found disappointing. Next time I reserve I will know to request seating in the dining room. It was a special occasion so I would have loved to be in the beautiful dining room. It was very noisy upstairs. The service was about as good as it could be considering there were only 2 waiters upstairs. They needed as least 4. We were never asked if we wanted anything else to drink, or checked on. The waiter did apologize but was in such a hurry all the time. Anyways, the food was wonderful! Every dish was amazingly good so we will most certainly go back.

    With so many fine dining options in the RI area it is not easy to stand out, but Chapel Grille certainly manages to do just that. We are regulars at this outstanding culinary delight. Great ambiance, convenient location, outstanding staff, and of course fantastic food with lots of variation and creativity on a weekly basis. Main dining room, with best fireplace in RI, is romantic and beautiful. Wine list and cocktails are superb. Wait staff are always attentive without being intrusive. The weekly specials are truly special in that they are always changing and very creative. The Bar area is large, beautiful, and exciting with lots of energy, great service and uniques cocktails. Our biggest challenge here is finding something to criticize.

    I was traveling on business and found Chapel Grill on OT. The food was great, but the staff and service made the evening amazing. The larger than life portraits of the town founders are a little much, but the overall experience was second to none. I had a nice bottle of wine (half-off), local and seasonal oysters (also half-off) lamb chops and scallops. I would recommend them all.

    The restaurant entrance was extraordinary and continued into the full restaurant. Table seating was easily assigned with a great view of the area with a "sky view". The meal was nicely presented and the wine list was extensive. The food was cooked as we requested and seasoned nicely. The waite staff, James, was friendly and attentive to our needs. The whole experience was another anniversary dinner we will long remember.

    Beautiful venue. Wife had an oriental style noodle/shrimp dish which was quite good. I had the small lamb chop dish of 3 chops and mashed; was tasty and adequate for my appetite. Clam/lobster chowder was very good and loaded with seafood, carrot and potato. Traditional calamari was very tender and mild flavored but the finger peppers had little heat. Service was timely, though not particularly warm or friendly. Deficiency for not offering to refill water glass, even though we were drinking it.

    We had a good experience having SUnday brunch. We arrived at 1:15 and the closing was at 2. We had to wait for a guest coming from Boston. Because it was near the end things were not as plentiful on the buffet. What we had was quite good especially the roast beef and the Italian vegetables. Our server was very helpful with beverages and the dessert cookies were quite good. When the time came to close they wanted us to finish so the staff could clean up. Our server stopped them from taking things away before we finished out meal. If we return we will try to schedule the time for the buffet to allow for better timing.

    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.

    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.
