Diner Reviews
  • " We enjoyed another dinner at Providence Prime. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Dinner was delicious, from appetizer of calamari to steak tips and filet mignon with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The only slight disapointment was the gelato for dessert. It's texture was off, not smooth creamy as it should be, but rather like ice milk, could have been a freezer thing. Our server was professional and notified the kitchen and manager, who brought us a take home replacement dessert, which we explained was not necessary. We will definitely continue to dine here, both the food and service shine!"

  • "We have not been to Providence Prime in over a year and they have just changed their layout, decor and menue in the last month or so. The new layout is much more open and comfortable, the decor more casual and then menu is a huge upgrade and offered a great variety that all looked excellent. The meal did not disappoint, the service was ok and they were not busy at all on a Tuesday night."

  • "Everything was perfect from the moment "before" we walked in the door. We were a party of four and we were all more than satisfied with the food, the service, and the relaxed atmosphere. Valet parking on a rainy night was especially appreciated. Best steak on the planet. Be sure not to miss this place if you are in Providence."

  • "Overall, entree items were very tasty, attractive and fully met expectations for my wife and me. An appetizer, "Colossal" shrimp cocktail, as described in the menu, could be called medium, so be sure to ask for free extra pieces for that price. Server was not knowledgeable about the content of entrees - that needs to be fixed altho in (some) fairness, server was very new to the organization. We will likely go again because we have faith in the brand that includes Prov Oyster Bar and Springhouse on Block Island ..."

  • "This was all of our first times eating at Providence Prime. I had heard about it from a friend so we decided to check it out for a birthday party. We were not disappointed! The waitstaff was very attentive to our needs and offered some great food suggestions. The steak was nicely cooked (some pink in the middle), and those duck fat fries were awesome. i'd definitely come here again!"

  • "We came to Providence Prime after our daughters college graduation...there were 11 of us including a 9 month old baby! The service was efficient and personable. The food and drinks was delicious and imaginative....over all we had a wonderful experience. We can't wait to come back and try the other items on the menu! "

  • "Went to celebrate a birthday. The food was excellent, and the service was as well. However, if you are looking for a quiet, romantic restaurant this would not be the place. Dining area is open to the bar and TV's on all night. There was music playing in the background but unfortunately you could not hear it. Tables extremely close together so couldn't help but hear everyone else's conversation."

  • "The 3 filet mignons were ordered were of excellent taste, however their individual price was way too high at $34 each. Their website stated the add-ons would be of no charge however, they stated at the restaurant that their policy was recently changed. Way too skimpy on the quantity of asparagus for the $8 price. We sat next to a party of 13, including two children. One adult was way too loud for this type of restaurant. The two kids were playing their video games a high volume level. All inappropriate. They need to upgrade their salt and pepper shakers to something other than what one would find at a local 24 hour diner. The music (contemporary Top 40 Hits) was a tad too loud. The alcoholic drinks took far to long to receive at our table."

  • "My wife and I came for my birthday. The Clams Casino, one of my favorite dishes anywhere, might have had a little too much butter, but are still up there with some of the best I've had. I was unsure which steak to get, and our waitress recommended the rib-eye, which was a winner. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious. My wife is a vegetarian, so the chef made her with a tasty pasta dish with vegetables in a lemon wine sauce. The only negative was that we asked if the sweet potato hash was made with meat and were told no. After my wife ate a few bites of potato, I discovered bacon, asked the waitress about it, and she said it was pancetta. Very disappointing since it wasn't a secret my wife is a vegetarian (special meal request)!"

  • "Perhaps I made the mistake of not ordering steak. I had the short-rib pappardelle pasta dish. It was flavorful, but very rich, and I, therefore, couldn't finish half of it. My dining partner had the bone-in veal, which was excellent. The ambiance was so-so. At 7:30 on a Saturday the restaurant was 3/4 empty. Oyster Bar next door was hopping. We considered scrapping Prime in favor of dining there. Our female server was nice, but didn't know the menu at all. She stumbled through the specials, making several errors. Perhaps she was new. I ordered a mixed drink which was terrible. She cheerfully took it off the bill. I don't think we'll be back. There are far better options for steak in Providence...as well as service and ambiance."

  • "The food was delicious, the restaurant was beautiful. The fact that there was only one other table with people was a little concerning for us, but the food was great and service just as good."

  • "Got to eat here unexpectedly after thinking I had made a reservation at 10 Prime steak and sushi. When we showed up at the wrong place I checked my confirmation and realized Providence Prime is not the same place. Lol Embarassing. However we had time to still make our reservation. Loved it, much quieter than the first place and the food was excellent as was the service. Started by sharing a dozen oysters followed by fork tender fillet mignon and the best creme brulee ever. I am gluten free so this was perfect. The creme brulee had real vanilla beans. Embarrased by the mix up but loved this one and will go back. The hostess at the first place saiid we weren't the first to confuse the 2."

  • "We have been to the sister restaurant, Providence Oyster Bar, many times, but hadn't been to the Prime in a few years. It didn't disappoint, and we love that they offer happy hour specials that include raw oysters, too! Service was perfect - attentive, but non-intrusive, and providing a good suggestion when asked."

  • "Brought my husband for his birthday dinner, as he loves steak and king crab and this is the one place that has that option year round. Our waitress was attentive and helpful, and made great recommendations (I was torn between a steak dish or short ribs with pasta and she pointed out that in the Hill if you want pasta you go to a different place). I had the bone-in filet mignon. My husband got the twice baked potato for a side and that was the star of the evening. We started with our favorite blue point oysters (which are also his absolute favorite variety) and steak tartare. Like I said, everything was delicious, and service was awesome but what sticks out to memory was the twice baked potato- go there and get that."

  • "The meals were outstanding. I am not going to lie it was expensive so ask for a price before you make your choice. The steaks outrageous. It is a place to dine and enjoy your company, food and drink. Not a place to run in and out of. It was a very quiet night on 3-5-14, our friends birthday but even though it was all about her , it was all about all of us. Wonderful"

  • "Delicious food, extremely friendly and knowledgable server, overall very pleasant and enjoyable experience. My steak was delicious and those I was with all received their steak perfect as ordered. The sides were fantastic. Started with the garbage salad which is a mix of lots of different things, although the name was off putting it was pretty good although seemed to have some items that didn't vibe with each other, but overall a solid choice. Also started with calamari for the table which was very good. Overall a great dining experience, great steaks and staff, very nice steakhouse."

  • "We went during restaurant week. We all had the filet mignon and it was amazing. It also has the best tiramusu I ever had. However, our server rushed us. I was still eating when he put the dessert down and while eating it he put the check down without asking if we would like coffee or tea. We would return again but would request a different waiter."

  • "Prime is definitely on the top of our great restaurants list! We would love to go more often, but it is a finer restaurant, we usually go on special occasions, or when we have a groupon. The staff is always fantastic and fun, and the steak is the best we have had. I love going to the hill, it is always a great experience. Thanks, Cindy Cooke"

  • "While I love Providence Prime, it is just ok for Valentines Day. The tables were extremely close together - more so than usual. You could barely squeeze between the tables to get sit. The waitstaff was completely overwhelmed. The Junior waitstaff did not pour water for us until we asked and we also had to ask for it to be refilled multiple times. Our waitress forgot to put our entrees in and our appetizers came out at different times - about 15 minutes between each one being served. All of the surrounding tables were given chocolate covered strawberries when they received their check, our table did not. Once the check was dropped we never saw our server again. All in all the food was just ok; too many reservations available for Vday"

The waiter's assistant however started clearing and people were still eating. I thought that was done in poor taste and it was unacceptable. I tipped Michael generously as he was a great server."

  • "The food, service, and ambience are all very good, but nothing was off the charts great about Providence Prime, especially for the price. You won't be disappointed as long as you don't listen to the hype about this place. If you like a good steakhouse, by all means give it a try. It's your typical small, (intimate?) Federal Hill boutique type restaurant, so make sure to make a reservation, especially on a weekend night. We'll go back, at some point, but it won't be in the regular rotation as it's a little pricey and more a special occasion type of place for my wallet."
