Providence Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
A big Thank You to Matt and the whole team for making our Birthday Celebration wonderful. They were very attentive throughout the whole time and they made us feel very welcome. Food and service was great and we will be back. We traveled from Ma & CT, so plenty of options, however we picked a winner!
Fiirst time dining here on a Sunday night during the holiday season. Coconut shrimp very crispy and tasty, nice starter to share. Orderemy favorite dish of grilled swordfish but forgot to request the sauce on the side. Not a pretty sight to see nice swordfish covered in green, and as I tend to eat with my eyes first, the appearance did not make me want to dive right in. Remember to hold the saucr next time. Good amount of lobster in lobster mashed potatoes. Clams and linguini dis never disappoints. Portion sizes so abundant that we had no room for dessert.
My fiance and I went here for his birthday, being the 1st time for both of us. Service was great, they were always filling our glasses with fresh water, and making sure everything was good. Food was amazing and prices are reasonable for the area. Would definitely go back again.
This place was fantastic!!! They had a wide variety of delicious, fairly priced oysters and seafood entrees. I enjoyed their fig-infused bourbon cocktail, as well. Overall, the service was excellent, the atmosphere romantic and cozy and I would go back in a heart beat!
Unforgettable Meal! I have eaten at amazing restaurants around the world, yet the Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass that I had a few nights ago was, by far, the best meal I have ever eaten! The sea bass was cooked to perfection, it literally melted in my mouth. The risotto, paired so well...it was the perfect combination. Along with the wine and fabulous service, this was one meal I won't ever forget. Book your reservation today!!!
I took my husband to POB for his birthday dinner and we were delighted with everything from the food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely go back. Looks like a great bar, too and we may even go back for lunch and sit at the bar. Surely recommend this gem on Federal Hill
This place is beyond FANTASTIC!! From the moment I arrived, the Sweet hostess greeted me and treated me as if I were the customer they had been waiting for.. I was alone and opted to sit at the bar. Carmela and Adam were amazing and took great care of me!
Now, the food... Began with Oysters Rockefeller, yum! Followed with an outstanding Sea Bass dish that was nothing short of perfect! This was my first time in Providence and I will be back!
I highly recommend PROVIDENCE OYSTER BAR!!!
Excellent experience! Delicious food! Great attentive service! Just one silly complaint, we sat at a booth and it wasn't comfortable because the seat was just a bit too short and seemed to tilt forward just a tiny bit. Weird but manageable for my height, may not be for someone else. This was the first book next to the door. Other booths may be just fine, I won't know until I try another)which I definitely will!
Food was excellent. Service was also very good. We especially liked that the meal wasn't rushed. Would return as there were other items on the menu we would have liked to try. Draft beer selection could be a bit more creative and would have liked to see an cocktail menu.
For our wedding anniversary we were staying overnight in Providence. We were looking for a seafood dinner and read a great review of POB happy hour $1 raw bar(!) No drink specials in RI for happy hour, but the $6 appetizer and bar menu made it a delicious happy hour. Huge bowl of lobster bisque was flavourful and had plenty of lobster chunks. Tasty bay scallops in light tomato sauce with blue cheese dipping sauce was awesome. Kale salad needs to be prepped ahead of time with dressing so that the leaves wilt- we took it home and had it the next day, when it wasn’t crunchy and totally raw. Seafood casserole was just right, and it is classier that they serve red bliss potatoes as a side. Attentive service.
My husband and I went to this restaurant because it had high ratings... and we know why. Waitress was fantastic. She recommended a bottle of wine to go with our meal which went perfectly. We had lobster won tons, tomato/motz/balsamic salad, soup, and lobster roll. Everything tasted great and fresh
