The noise is deafening in Prescott Provisions. Its an industrial layout, they could use some sound barrier carpeting or something on the ceiling and walls. The food was good, different, pricey. We may only go back for a cocktail but I would recommend this to freinds. Its different, maybe they will like it!

The restaurant was very loud. Love the location, they are doing a nice outdoor patio that will be fantastic for summer, the food was very good, I would like it if they had daily specials. Also disappointed in desert menu, some of our guests had different dessert menus and which, of course, had items on there that were not available.

My parents and I went here last Saturday before I took my mom to Shea's to see Dear Evan Hanson. It was the first time I'd been there, but I'll definitely return. I don't remember the name of the drink I had, but it was a frozen cocktail with an orange color and was great. We ordered the burrata appetizer which was fresh mozzarella and grilled bread. It was a unique take, and very tasty. For my entree, I got the tagliolini with crab and Calabrian chile in a light lemony sauce. It was delicious but very spicy. I liked that, but it might be more than some folks could handle. My father got the salmon and my mom got the sea scallops. All the meals were delicious and came as large portions. We were too full to try dessert. I will definitely come again.

It was a very nice evening spent there. Met the head chef and Owner. Very good wine selection. Dishes were exquisitely presented and prepared. I do think the craft beer List in tap could be tremendously re-examined however. My friend is a beer drinker only and the List does not at all reflect the caliber of food nor wine nor mixed cocktail offerings thereat. I inquired and was told people enjoy Coors LightS

We received a warm welcome and our server was enthusiastic - if not completely focused (one example only one glass arrived with the bucket containing our chilled sparkling water). A well assembled menu with a broad selection of small plates, reasonably sized pizzas and full dinners. We loved the crispy brussel sprouts, charred avocado with little dots of citrus gel that tasted amazing, and beef tartare. Salad was really fresh but a little overdressed. It was worth saving room for the burnt butter cake with a handful of smashed pistachios. Can't wait to enjoy their new outdoor patio looking on to the canal.

Nice ambience, great service and excellent food! Had a drink at the bar before going to table and bartender knowledgeable and friendly. Our waitress was working her first night and was knowledgeable, attentive and conversant. Will recommend Prescott’s to friends and family and will return soon. Well done. Cheers!

This was our first time at Prescott's Provisions and we were beyond impressed! They exceeded our expectations. We brought out of town guests with us for the first time and we agreed that our entire meal was fantastic! From the service to the food to the ambiance, we were greatly pleased with our overall experience at Prescott's Provisions. For appetizers, we ordered the wagyu beef tartare, wood roasted octopus, and crispy potatoes. All were delicious! For entrees, we each ordered the Casarecce, Grilled Halibut, Grilled Pork Shoulder & Belly, and the Roasted Farm Chicken. We were all so impressed with how tasty each dish was. Personally, I ordered the Casarecce and it was one of the best pasta dishes that I have ever had! Overall, it was such a great experience and we are looking forward to our next visit to try their wood fired pizzas!

I had 2 vegetables, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower- they were amazing and enough for 2 to 3 meals. Also tried the forcaccia of the day - excellent!! My husband had a NY Strip, he didn’t love it, a little tough. Also not happy only potato choice was French fries. So I’ll definitely make it back, not sure about him.

This was our second visit since they opened, so we have had a chance to try a few menu items. Consistently good are the brussel sprouts and the deep fried cauliflower. The baby romaine salad looks great, and tastes as good as it looks. On the 1st visit, I had the monkfish, and thought it was terrific. This time, another dinner ordered it and was disappointed. However, tried the wood fired pizza and was impressed. Thin, chewy crust and tasty toppings. Although, I think they could list a few more pizza creations past the 3 standard.

The food and cocktails were excellent. This place is very reminiscent of The Grange Community Kitchen, in Hamburg, but with a way better layout and more ample seating. With a wide open floor plan and high ceilings, it’s quite noisy, so brush up on your lip reading skills or “outdoor voice”.

This is a great spot for the Northtown’s. It looks like they’re going to make improvements to their patio which will have a decent view of the canal.

I can’t wait to go back and try other menu items.

Everything about the experience at Prescott's Provisions was really outstanding, with one minor exception. The food was terrific, we got some excellent recommendations from the server, the cocktails were absolutely sensational. Unfortunately, the server waited until we had completely finished the veggies and grilled octopus we had ordered as appetizers to take our order for the main course. Consequently, we had a substantial wait before the main course arrived, resulting in a longer than necessary evening for some of the staff, who had to wait for us to finish before they could leave. He really should have checked back with us much sooner. However, it won't stop us from returning, since everything else was totally spot on.

It was very busy on my visit. The food was delicous and I liked the decor, but the noise level was high and I flet like our server was not as attentive as I would have liked. We wanted to order dessert, but opted not too as we waited so long. We ended up having to ask another employee for our bill. Will try another time.

I feel the wine pour was very very small. We dine out out 1x month for about 22 years and we have never seen such a small “sample” of wine. That was very disappointing.
