Went for dinner on Thursday night. Had an amazing experience. The stuff was great and friendly. Was not rushed to make any decisions on apps or dinner. When we did decide it came out hot and tasted amazing. Go out and try a local gem!!

About the restaurant
Gracie’s is committed to providing an unforgettable dining experience. Great lengths are taken to ensure each dish highlights local seasonal ingredients. Our team works closely with local farmers, fishermen, brewers, winemakers, and distillers to bring you the freshest ingredients available. Gracie’s team is trained to accommodate food allergies and a wide range of dietary restrictions.

We are conveniently located in downtown Providence’s theater district (across from Trinity Rep and a short walk from PPAC). We are also close to the Dunkin Donuts Center, the RI Convention Center, Brown University, RISD, Johnson and Wales University, and Providence College.

We believe in full transparency; a 22% service fee (Teamshare) is added to each check to compensate our team of trained professionals with a consistent and reliable salary. Additional gratuity is optional and will be dispersed to the Hospitality Team.

Thank you for choosing Gracie’s and supporting our passion.

Food was outstanding. We went for our anniversary, but not treated as well as in the past. We were seated in the bar area after we requested the dining room. It wasn't as good an experience as we had hoped.

We created our own meal from the “sides” menu: grilled chicken (moist and delicious), string beans (perfectly cooked with bits of cooked parmesan), and coconut black rice (best rice dish I’ve ever experienced). The bread was amazing too. The best meal I’ve had in a long time!

About the restaurant
Dine on a fusion of American and Italian cuisine at Fresco. Its relaxing atmosphere, as well as friendly service, allows for comfort while enjoying a good meal and conversing with friends or family. Chefs at Fresco creatively plate meals made to order and from fresh ingredients. Guests can choose from an array of flavorful appetizers, soups and salads before moving on to their main course. An entrée of roasted pork tenderloin topped with apple chutney or pan-seared chicken with red pepper mascarpone sauce will fulfill the appetite. Wood-grilled pizza, gluten-free and pasta dishes, as well as scrumptious desserts are on the menu. Fresco has a full bar and provides wine pairings with meals. It features daily specials, including prix fixe dinners on Monday. Reservations are also welcomed.

Great value on Mondays with their Monday night special dinner for 2 for $50. It includes 2 salads, 2 entrees, and a bottle of wine. I had the ceasar salad and salmon with jasmine rice and green beans. The food is always delicious, and the service is friendly and professional. I bring family and friends here quite often. There is free off-street parking.

We were impressed by our whole experience. This was a special occasion for us and a perfect place celebrate. In our increasingly casual world, we felt pampered. Our server,Bayron knowledgeably presented and explained our drink and food selections and the entire team supplemented his attention. We chose the vegetable set menu and every dish was not only delicious but artfully plated. Our table overlooked the beach with the colorful bathers and cerulean sea. We are locals and hadn’t visited the Ocean House in too long. We look forward to our next visit.

About the restaurant
If you are looking for some of Providence's best Asian food around, look no further than Noodles 102. For 17 years, Noodles has been serving the East Side a variety of delicious noodle soups, dumplings, claypot rice, and stir fry noodles.

While we're best known for our Ramen, Pho, and Udon noodle soups, we are also highly-regarded for our Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, and Green Curry Lemongrass Stir Fry. Before you dive in head first to your meal, don't forget to try our pork or vegetable dumplings, Nime Chow, and our scallion pancakes.

Noodles is also vegan and gluten-free friendly! All of our broths and sauces are already gluten free, and our broths can be made vegetarian based, so you'll never have to worry about not having enough options.
