Service and food were great
The owners are amazing. They will address any concerns and go above and beyond for you.
Great food and great staff!
Had dinner here with my wife once and since we liked it, I've decided to take my parents for lunch here. It was a completely different experience.
The food looked and tasted mediocre to bad. We left half of it on the plate and my father didn't even want to touch the "creamed spinach with cheese" that looked pretty scary.
I assume the kitchen during lunch time is run by anyone but the chef and the result is that any slightly complicated dishes were just not good.
The best dish was a cauliflower salad. Anything beyond that... just not good and doesn't justify the ~200$ for this lunch we've left there.
The food was very good. A little expensive for a chopped iceberg salad at $13.00. When iceberg lettuce is $1.19 in ShopRite.
The pork shank was delicious. Highly recommend the desserts.
We went for Father’s Day dinner. We had gone for dinner there before and were not overwhelmed with the quality of food. Have to say this time was not great either. The food was below quality. The burger was dry and over cooked and tasted like it was in a grease fire. The steak was cooked to temp but was also tasting of grease fire. The short rib ravioli was just ok, nothing to write home about, and the macaroni and cheese was mediocre.
We don’t think we will be dining there again. I don’t feel we got good quality food and my husband feels the same way. Such a shame because we had high hopes for this restaurant to be successful and different than the others in town.
Went for Father's Day, 7 of us all together. Rarely do grandkids finish their entire meal but this time they did: hanger steaks and tuna. Everyone enjoyed a few shared appetizers. Mojitos and a manhattan starts were well made too. Adults enjoyed their meals; no room for desert. The back patio has no view but has been made visually appealing. Would visit again but they compete with many nearby BYOBs but not with their variety of food.
What a great meal. We had not been there since they changed their format. The patio dining was great. The drink specials were inventive and the dinner options were amazing. Highly recommended.
Everyrhing was delicious. We were all very happy. We sat outside. I wish the table was a little bigger it was hard for four people.
Everything was excellent, beautiful place excellent food and service!
The food was delicious and beautifully plated. Service was excellent. Such a tiny hidden gem with lovely ambience. I’d recommend it in a heartbeat & am looking forward to returning.
We went on Memorial weekend for outside dining and it was lovely. Between the trees and the mural you would not believe you were in the middle of New Providence. The service was very good and helpful. The rolls were served with a special homemade sauce that was unexpected but very good. My husband and I both had different veal dishes and they were both very tender and flavorful. The veggies were great! Service was very good checking on us but not rushing us. Husband had tiramisu which was very good. We will come back!
Always love coming here. The salads we had to start were so good. Branzino entree was excellent. Very friendly and attentive staff.
I have been to Providence Bar & Kitchen many times & the food & service never disappoint. I had the Lamb Chop Special & it was delicious. They also do take out & have outside seating. Highly recommend.
We came in for my wife’s birthday for lunch. The first thing I noticed was how beautiful the space is - they have done a really great job in there. Our service was attentive and the food was excellent, my favorite was the coho salmon. My wife had the short rib rigatoni and said it was the best pasta she’d had in months! We will definitely be coming back very soon. Thanks to the owner and staff for making sure we had a great experience.
We were there for Mother’s Day and were very disappointed. At 7pm, they were out of bread, many of the specials and even some desserts. They did not seem prepared or well maintained.
We went the other day for Mother’s Day. The service is fantastic, attentive without being pushy. The food is delicious. We love going here.
Second time there. Very good, service was not as good as the first time, but people are very nice and food is great.
Local gem that puts New Providence on the map for good food lovers!
The sushi pizza was absolutely delicious and the perfect size for a meal!
Food was very good, for the most part. Unfortunately, the hostess was lazy in seating us. We told her our party of 4 was ready, then she proceeded to sit down herself at a table with a friend and drink for the rest of the night. We then were eventually seated and had the mispleasure of being waited on by Anna, who was most likely in the top 2 rudest waitresses of all time. She would interrupt at will, cut off your questions and rip the menu from the table. Worst part it wasn’t even crowded. On open table -there were no open tables supposedly until after 8:15, however when we got there, the place was about 1/3 full.
I am low maintenance, this place was lowest maintenance in service. Food was good though, so good luck.
I am always delighted with the attention and service and the great food at this wonderful neighborhood gem.
Excellent meal! Loved the option of sitting on the outdoor patio.
We originally had tried this restaurant last year and had a very bad experience. The owner felt bad and gave us a gift certificate to come back. We had avoided it but finally decided to give them another shot and boy were we impressed. So much better on all counts the food was unbelievable. They had a tuna Crudo that was the best appetizer I've ever had and my husband and I split Mediterranean chicken which was also very good. portions were large enough that we could each get an appetizer, split dinner and be very full. Service was good not great but other than that highly recommend it now. In fact we made another reservation to come back next weekend
Excellent meal. Nicely renovated. Great bar specials
Have dined here many times and one of the reasons we return again and again is the service, the ambience and the special dishes. The short rib rigatoni is our "go to" dish. Can't get enough of it.
Haven't been here in several months, but had a great experience upon our return. Husband ordered chicken dish and I had crab cake - both were delicious. Wedge salads are generous. I have always loved the mushroom bisque. Can't wait for warmer weather so we can take advantage of the outside dining!
Food was ok, despite the canned anchovies on the Caesar salad when white anchovies were on the menu. Service was good. Nice looking place. Nothing special.
Surprisingly very good. Very diverse menu. Excellent service. Great addition to the area. Will gladly return.
We loved our experience!
The staff was very friendly and the service really good. It's always nice when they are able to time courses well. Had great mixed drinks and a nice wine list. It's a smaller dining room so reservations are a good idea.
The food was delish. I've never had octopus carpaccio before - and loved it. Have already recommended to a friend. Will absolutely go again and again.
A real neighborhood find. Highly recommended
It is a very attractive space updated when they added a liquor license. We preferred when we could bring our own wine. Unfortunately we waited for about 25 minutes to be seated despite the fact that we had a reservation. Once seated, all went well. The menu is varied and there are specials. Chocolate dessert was
The perfect ending.
First timers, invited old friends and picked as a halfway place just by chance. Great find, more than satisfied with place, food was really good, staff was pleasant and professional. Felt friendly and quite comfortable. Would definitely go back.
Food presentation was beautiful apps to dessert. Great attention to detail. Service was great! First time and a 20 minute drive . We’ll be back!! Great octopus app!
Very pleasant service, nice bar and well prepared appetizers.
My wife and I thought the dinner was excellent and the creme brûlée for desert was by the best we ever had.
Seating is tight but overall a great night.
Terrific family celebration for a birthday.
Overall, a nice local place and the food is good.
