Dinner for 7 of us for my son's 24th birthday. The wait staff was attentive, and not intrusive. The food was amazing!
While dinner was good we had a very bad experience regarding our wine order. From the menu ordered an expensive 2013 Cabernet. After bottle was opened we saw it was a 2015. Discussed with waiter who talked to management. Answer was same wine same price. Not cool at all and we won't be back. Wrote note to restaurant before this post. They never responded.
Waiter was great. Food delish...you must try !
Our welcome was warm and service excellent
Loved appts. Flavors, colors, texture great
Disappointed on side dishes. Perhaps the potatoes used for mash potatoes were frozen previously.
Funny texture Bread basket very nice and we appreciated the attentiveness and water glasses full
And appreciate the surprise dessert for the birthday
Genuinely one of the best 2-3 restaurants in all Rhode Island! The food and service is second to none. Do yourself (and your guest) a favor and just Go!!
Me and my husband went for our anniversary. Waiter service was great, all the food was delicious and their special dessert was one of the best desserts we have ever tried. I would definitely go again for a special occasion.
All was great
Our waiter was somewhat absent until we asked for service
By far this is the best restaurant in RI and MA hands down. Don't waste your time going to Federal Hill, if you want a first class experience Café Nuovo is the only place to go. The food is wonderful every time! I have never had a bad meal or anything but an amazing dish and my husband and I are frequent customers. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the outside dining area can't be beat for Water Fire. The staff is exceptional! So much so that we decided to have our wedding here last year. They truly make the difference between a great experience to an outstanding one!
Top notch service, food and dining experience!! Will be back!!!
My friend and I had a delightful experience at the bar waiting for our reservation. The Bartender was lovely and made us feel welcome. Our server was helpful and fun and professional. Now about the food: DEELISH!! I rarely order steak out anymore because I am always disappointed. Our steaks were cooked perfectly according to our preferences. We had the lettuce wraps as an app and it is worth the trip just for those. The wine selection was great too. I love this place. If you want excellent food and a great dining experience I highly recommend.
I've been going to Cafe Nuovo since it first open and I have never been disappointed by a meal there. On my most recent visit, I had the Dover Sole. It was perfectly prepared and presented. I've eaten Dover sole all over the world and Cafe Nuovo's Dover Sole was excellent. The service at Cafe Nuovo is always pleasant and the staff is most accommodating. I had a really great Manhatten before dinner that was so good I had another one with dinner and skipped the wine. My guest and I were too full to have one of the famous Cafe Nuovo desserts, which are always as beautiful as they are tasty.
Nolan, our waitress made a perfect meal even better.
Excellent as usual.
Great Service, excellent food!
Food was excellent!
Food was good but had to stand for 45 minutes and wait for our table even though we had a reservation.
Excellent as always Dimitri was in the kitchen cooking some great specials
Good food, service and a nice setting.
I had the special which included a very tiny lobster tail and ravioli that were hard. The server was very pleasant and attentive but when I told her I didn't hadn't really enjoyed the meal she just apologized and didn't offer to tell the manger.
My filet mignon and my wife's beef tenderloin were not cooked as requested and needed to be sent back to the kitchen. It took me several minutes to flag down a server. The server asked my wife if she wanted to eat her vegetables while waiting for her filet mignon to be cooked. The he asked me if mine was okay. looked at my wife and commented "he's looking for a comp". I didn't find that funny. We must have had 3 or 4 different servers during the meal which was weird. I settled the bill and discovered it was not ours. Brought it to the servers attention. We didn't receive one apology. One of my best friends is a chef. Represented the US in Germany for the Culinary Olympics, Opened the kitchen in the Providence Westin, Chef Castle Hill Newport, Chef Carnegie Abbey said there was no excuse and couldn't believe there was no comp.
My fiancé and I had a fabulous dining experience a year ago when we got engaged here on Valentines Day. I decided to celebrate again and was so glad I did. The device was wonderful and the food amazing.
Amazing service and food. Very romantic setting. Would definitely recommend to others
Great food. Not as quirky as most Providence restaurants- kind of fancy.
First time at restaurant so we found it unusual location going into a commercial office building entrance; nice ambience once you are in restaurant. For entree, I had the beef short ribs - wish it was smaller chunks versus 2 large chunks; still liked that it came apart easily; wish it was more ‘saucy’. My husband had the duck special - he loved it; though he thought the red cabbage purée sauce was too sweet. We had the lettuce wrap and crab cakes for starters - delicious!
Fantastic birthday dinner!
We have come to love this restaurant. The food is excellent and the service we have always had is impeccable!
outstanding for our family dinner prior to a show at PPAC
Excellent meal great waiter wonderful vibe beautiful ambiance exquisite plates loved the view of kitchen through the glass!
Excellent food and service. I enjoyed our night out here.
We have been here numerous times, however this time we were disappointed.
My meal was cold when I received it, sent it back and it was still cold when I received
it the second time. My wife diner had to be sent back , which I must said that the server did not want to serve it because of the size of the portion. The dessert was not very creative and the presentation was not up to prior visits. It must of been a bad night, with all my negative feedback, I would probably try Cafe Nuovo again
Had a party of 10 for a retirement/birthday party. From Shawn who welcomed us to Tricia who took care of us it was a terrific and memorable evening
People came in from Ct and Boston for this special evening
Everyone enjoyed it and are looking to our next return.
Everything was fantastic - from the service, ambience, cocktails, wine selection and most importantly, the food. Presentation was beautiful.
Absolutely excellent meal. Food was delicious and service was spot on. Dat on time drinks served quickly and made perfectly. Great wine list as well
Great pre theater dinner!
Great experience but wish they were a little more attentive to a gluten allergy.
Delicious dinner served in a stylish setting overlooking the gondola basin. We visited in winter, and we are looking forward to returning during the summer.
Gary our server was amazing, recommendations were spot on and service was on target! One of our favorite places to have a great date night!
Presentation of our food choices was wonderful and innovative. While are food was good, I wouldn't say it was exceptional and as most upscale restaurants in Providence, it was on the pricey side. My friend and I each had 2 glasses of wine (their cheapest), with one of us ordering a soup and entree, while I ordered a caesar salad and grilled pizza. We shared a dessert and had coffee. The bill with tip included came to $180. I'd not recommend this restaurant to everyone because of it's eclectic menu combinations and its' price. Its location during
Waterfire would be perfect.
Late Christmas celebration with my nephew and niece.
Waiter was amazing, food was great. It was my first time there. Will definitely be going back.
