We were having a dinner meeting and were pleasantly surprised that there was live music. It was just nice enough background music and the actual musician was great. We all ordered different items, entrees, salads, appetizers, etc. and everyone really enjoyed the meals. And if you get a glass of wine they do this amazing pour that makes you break out your phone to video!

We ate here on a busy Saturday night. We were warmly and friendly welcomed upon arriving and seated quickly of the appointed reservation. Once seated, we were served promptly. Service was outstanding which made our evening pleasant. Food came within a reasonable time and was delicious. Tony was very professional and highly knowledgeable about everything particularly wine list.
We all were very happy and will return very soon.

Our party of 3 was greeted warmly by Benito & Kellee. Restaurant was crowded so our entrees took a little longer than usual. But the food was delicious (as it usually is) and we all enjoyed our evening!

We arrived early and sat at the bar for a drink, when our res time came, someone came to get us. Sat down and it was packed for such an early time, 6:30 PM. They ask you if you want bread, which I did, and it was a roll and they give you a veg puree. It was good. I would prefer seasoned oil. They do not ask if you wanted another piece of bread. Food comes out fairly quickly, and when it was time for my entree, they brought the wrong item. It was quickly taken away, and I waited maybe 3-4 minutes for my entree. It was delicious. It was my birthday, and Open Table asked if it was a special occasion. I guess no candles.. All in all, I will go back. Nice bar area, and nice tabletop seating at the bar, if you want casual dining.

There are those places that after you leave you look back and say to yourself “ that was overpriced and not worth it” This is one of those places.

I have been here once before with a company party and had great time so I decided to bring my husband for dinner.
Cocktails are great, food is delish and very flavorful and service is outstaning, very friendly and accommodating.
We have been taken care by Tony who did an amazing job.
Will definitely bring some friends and sit in the outdoor heated canopy.
Highly recommend this place.

The food was mediocre to say the best. We had a family dinner with the kid and the quality of dishes was not impressive. For example, the meat was not fresh - steak and frites that I took - and frites were barely lukewarm. The service had an attitude. The check for a modest dinner with wine came to 170 which given the quality of food was definitely not worth it. Overall, i am surprised why such a place has so many positive reviews if it fails on all dimensions and it’s not even byob. Definitely will not return.

The food was ok at best. Service was good until I ordered the chocolate sin cake of Providence. Might be one of the worst things I have ever tasted. Cake was dry and tasted freezer burned. Told the server that I was extremely disappointed in that dessert to which he said “ I am sorry” and walked away. There was no effort by the staff of this restaurant or a manager to fix this issue and I was charged full price for crappy dessert. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

A nice addition to New Providence (has been here for a few years); especially now that there is a liquor license. My personal opinion- too expensive for what you receive. This isn't New York City. Other than that, the restaurant has nice ambiance, there was a live guitarist playing in the bar area, not overly loud, and the food was great!

It’s been a few since I was there last time, but after my meal few nights ago I wanted to give another shout out to Providence crew. Every time I’ve eaten there I’ve been super happy with the food and specially service and last week was no different

My wifey and I were there with few other cuoples and spent couple hours drinking nice drinks, eating great food and to mention that Tony did an amazing job, very knowledgeable and funny.

Listen, I can’t describe how good our food was so do me a favor.. go to Providence Bar & Kitchen and enjoy.
