Providence Oyster Bar
POB is terrific. It is fresh, creative, and the atmosphere is relaxed yet refined. The sushi is second to none.
Food was excellent. Our party had the oysters, grilled tuna & fillet mignon. All fantastic. Our server Kelly was very low key yet attentive. Highly recommend eating here.
Our waiter was very attentive and helpful.
Perfect as always
We had a great time and the food was very fresh and delicious 😋
The food was great - great location as well. Easy valet parking. We were 7 people and service was excellent. Also, we had tickets for a show at the Dunk and the staff was right on top of the timing.
We had a great experience.
Great place I've been there many times. Always great food and a great atmosphere
Providence Oyster Bar is always very good. I'm always seated right away, the food and drinks are excellent. It's not a big restaurant and with the tables so close I'd expect it to be noisy but it really isn't. (good acoustics?) Our waitress (Leila Z) was outstanding. Great place to go before an event at the DD Center. Easy valet parking, good value for the money.
We've been to the Oyster Bar many times and the food is always consistently good. The service is also very good which is why we keep going back.
Took our best friend for her birthday, and we had a lovely dinner! The food was really good! Good service, mice atmosphere!
Excellent food. All the fish dishes are very good.
Great meal! Valet parking a plus. Our server was excellent. Can’t wait to go back!
Every experience I've had with the Providence Oyster Bar has been perfect I have not been able to find one thing to complain about this is by far my favorite restaurant
Overall disappointing. Surprisingly slow service for a night that wasn’t busy. Took 20 minutes to receive our clam chowder appetizers. Servers were nice, but off point. Ketchup arrived after I was done with my meal. Sat with empty water glasses multiple times.
Had hoped for better.
The only imperfection was that they were out of oysters and calamari, although it was understandable knowing it was just after Valentine's day. Other than that our server was great, she gave us the time to sip on our drinks before the wonderful food was out. Great experience and we will return!
One of our favorite dining spots. Love the oysters and favorite entree of swordfish, lobster mashed potatoes and asparagus. The sauce on that dish delish. The scallop with bacon appetizer was great - especially good with the spicy dip that comes with the bread. The steak Oscar was perfectly cooked. Wine pours generous. Service excellent as always.
It was a great dinner, and the server was attentive. Everything seemed fresh and beautifully presented.
We just love this place! They are super accommodating and the food is awesome! This was our first brunch there, but not our last!!
If I could, I would give Providence Oyster Bar a 4.5 out of 5 stars and not a 4. The food was excellent and I thought the wine selection was wonderful. When my father received his sashimi I was amazed at how beautiful it looked. I received the surf and turf and it was probably one of the best meals I have had in my life. If I could afford it I would go back every week to get a plate! My only criticism was that our seat was furtherest in the back and whenever the door opened, we got this big rush of cold. My father couldn't take his coat off and It felt as if we were unimportant. I also felt that the service reflected this as well. Maybe if we did not have the experience with the seating we would have not felt this way about the service, but the two together was enough of a complaint that I needed to factor it into my review. I will absolutely still come back here!
Our waiter Steve was terrific - added to an already terrific meal!!
Nice environment, service was awesome as well as the food
For such a busy night (Valentines Day), the entire staff was attentive and hard working. Excellent dinning experience.
Great , fresh oysters and sushi. Waiter was very knowledgeable.
It’s always good. Consistent always service not as good this time. But it was efficient
Love this place!! I always order too much food !! Lobster Mac n cheese is delish!!!
Love this place. The food is always excellent, service is good, and great atmosphere. Thanks.
This is one of those little gems that generally slips one's mind, but never disappoints. Fine, friendly service and great food.
We built our own tasting menu: POB, Mexican Sushi, RI Calamari and a side of risotto. It was all delicious!
We enjoyed a family night during Restaurant week, the food was delicious and our server was very friendly. We enjoyed the fresh oysters and my Cod loin dish was very good.
Just returned from restaurant week and the food was great. Calamari with wasabi drizzle was sensational and my husband said that the oysters on the 1/2 shell were perfect. For lunch I had the shrimp tacos, 2 with fries and they were crunchy and yummy. My husband had the surf and turf sushi which was large in portion and well seasoned. For dessert we took home the cannoli.
Our server was friendly and attentive and we waited for nothing; everything was well timed, perfect temperature, and never felt rushed.
Total cost with drinks was under $60, so a nice anniversary lunch.
Spectacular food and wonderful service. The bar was pretty busy but it wasn't too rowdy that it took away from the dining room ambiance. Dishes (which were perfectly cooked and well-plated) came out in a timely fashion and our server was very pleasant. It made for an overall great experience. Looking forward to another meal here.
Every dish we ordered was delicious and perfectly proportioned. The service was fabulous and the overall experience was exactly what we were expecting...excellent. Can’t wait to go back!
Took my girlfriend there to try what I assumed to be a good salmon meal. Not only was it ridiculously expensive (for 2 people.. $200) they couldn’t even make a correct red bliss potatoes side. The salmon itself was decent but bland, I was highly disappointed in the quality of the food they let go out of the kitchen. Save the money, go someplace else
We've been to the POB numerous times and are always pleased with the service. The fresh seafood is exceptional. This time we both had the Kale salad, and the $60 raw assortment. The oysters and crab were amazing - I'm not as fond of the raw clams. The bread was good, our waiter was attentive, and my Vodka Gimlet was very good. I ordered it with Rose's, it came with lime juice, but I enjoyed it with fresh lime juice. We will go again.
The Service was the worst!!! Wouldn’t go back there
Such a fantastic place! Everyone from the valet to the server is polite and attentive and always a smile. The food is incredible and the drinks seasonal and delicious.
We had my son's three college friends visiting from Texas and they wanted seafood so we thought Providence Oyster Bar (POB) would be a great place to take them, especially since it's located on the iconic Federal Hill, a must see for first time visitors to Providence. And I have to say POB didn't disappoint, at least not with respect to the food. Everything we ordered was delicious! And although it wasn't inexpensive, I thought it was reasonable given we were ordering lobster and other generally pricey seafood items.
Unfortunately, the service did not fare as well. Our waitress was inattentive and not friendly at all. I don't know if she was having a bad night, but it made our experience a little less than great.
Always a excellent meal. Waitress was great. Highly recommend POB. When on Federal Hill this place is a solid Restaurant...
Great place to eat. I frequent there with my husband on date night
