Diner Reviews
  • "I was so dissapointed as I loved the interior of this restaurant and the service was wonderful; however, I ordered the special, pulled beef short ribs with spinach fettuccine. I found about six cubed pieces of beef (not pulled) and it was completely tasteless. My husband had a burger, which he said was good, but the fries were loaded with salt. I thought it was expensive and I won't be returning. Wish they would step up their quality."

  • "Greeted promptly and seated upon arrival. Friendly service, then somewhat downhill from that point. Truffle fries were tasty yet soggy. Should have more of a crisp to them. Meatloaf was uninspiring without the hint of bacon as described. Seafood casserole was tasty according to my dinner partner yet was not according to my palate. Definitely room for improvement in the kitchen. Would give another try in the future."

  • "On our way to the Ocean State Theatre to see a friend we were very pleased to stop in here for dinner and thoroughly surprised by everything about it! Service was terrific, food was yummy, and it is very convenient to the theatre. I highly recommend this place for dinner before or drinks after! We will get back:)"

  • "This restaurant is exceptionally wonderful with a diverse menu for foodies. The complex combination of spices and presentation is comparable to a NYC five star restaurant. This place is a gem with great service and suggestions from your waiter to try something new and not be disappointed. The restaurant manager constantly walks around and oversees everything. This is a very good and well run establishment and nothing goes unseen."

  • "This is the third time I've been to this restaurant where the food was not very good. My boyfriend ordered the seafood casserole and the scallops were not fresh. They had a bitter taste. Food that isn't fresh, especially seafood is unacceptable. I keep coming back because I love the atmosphere of the restaurant, but the food just isn't up to par. My advice is hire a new chef."

  • "Another enjoyable meal. The service and food continue to be very good. The seafood casserole was expertly cooked, with just the right amount of butter for flavor and moisture. The meatloaf was a rather large slice, the mash potatoes were perfect. The seasonal vegetables, carrots and string beans, were good but the string beans could have been cooked slightly longer. For starters the Asian Calamari was properly seasoned and a good variation from the usual RI style. The Chicken Asian Wraps had the perfect amount of Asian species. To finish off the meal we shared the Raspberry and Mango Sorbet, a perfect ending to a great meal."

  • "Soon after we sat down our waiter greeted us and knew we were both gluten-free. We were so happy that someone paid attention to our comments on Open Table! There were many good choices and a separate menu for those on a gluten -free diet. We both ordered seafood dishes and for my seafood casserole they left off the cracker crumbs and substituted other vegetables.It was absolutele delicious! My husband and I both agreed that it is a restaurant we will both come back to!"

  • "Even though Iron Works is located in the property for a neighboring hotel, the food's prices are fairly reasonable and the food quality is very good. There is everything from casual sandwiches to seafood to steaks on the menu. The atmosphere is like a brewery inside, with it's brick and copper. I'd say it's more adult in atmosphere though they'd welcome families/children. They have a nice assortment of custom cocktails, a decent selection of wines, and delicious appetizers and deserts."

  • "Did not realize it was "Restaurant Week" when, sort of last minute, we decided to go to Iron Works for dinner! Even busier, more bustling than ever at 6:15 PM yet the food was just as great as ever and service was friendly and very efficient. We (2 of us) did not feel at all rushed, enjoyed our tasty meals (everything I have had here has always been tasty), and were on our way home in just about one hour! Wide menu selection and prices very reasonable!"

  • "We had a good meal last Saturday. Wine list somewhat limited but the beer selection was better and interesting. The menu was also quite eclectic and interesting which is good if you wish to try something new. It was rather loud for normal volume conversation, which was a negative for us. The bar looked inviting, but we didn't sit there. Plenty of parking in a historic building that has been restored with exposed old beams and brick......nice."

  • "This was my 3rd visit. The first time everything was excellent. The 2nd time the service was poor but the food was good. This visit was during Providence Restaurant week. The service was OK not great. The food portions were smaller due to the packaging for restaurant week with a fixed priced menu. The savings based on the menu prices was about $2 but the portions are smaller. It makes more sense to order from the regular menu. There are so many better reliable restaurants in the area so I doubt that I will ever return."

  • "Had the restaurant week menu; eggplant app, braised short rib and banana foster dessert. She had veggie ravioli. Service was great, Kevin Duffney, the head chef, stopped by to say hi. Highly recommended and we would return."

  • "Great Decor, low lighting for average dining or date night! The prime rib was excellent, waiter right on the money, overall great atmosphere for a reasonable price. I love the darker, brick-like decor, if you want warm come here, if you want white and modern go elsewhere. Pick your mood and then pick the place!"

  • "We visited Iron Works for the first time 2 weeks ago and the food and service was fantastic. We decided to go back for a 2nd visit. The food was still great but our waiter was poor. The only good thing is that he did get the dinner order correct. We were never offered bread and all of the tables around us had bread and the table next to us had their bread refilled. Our drink glasses were empty and we were never asked if we wanted refills even when he brought our check. We saw the manager visiting other tables but he never stopped at our table. We are not in a rush to go back again."

Cheesecake was ok. Husband had salad and loved it, lobster sauté and bread pudding thought were excellent. Would recommend restaurant. Service was very good. No atmosphere on the night we visited. Would go back again."
