    Went for Mothers Day. Food tasted watery and like it was frozen. My husband's steak tasted freezer burnt. Not worth the money. Much better places around.

    Food was not as described. The filet tips were minced sirloin steak. The service was equally disappointing with long waits for food and drinks often only half the table would receive the order and then wait another 10 minutes for the remaining food and drinks.

    This place is WONDERFUL! This was my fourth time here since December, always with the same friend. You immediately realize this is a comfortable space with different seating options. The staff is excellent from the minute you arrive, until you say goodbye. Most importantly, the food is absolutely delicious. Drinks are a full pour, the menu is varied enough to please even the pick eater (like me!) We shared the burrata with peppers to start...absolutely delicious. I have had the seared tuna and the branzino in the past, my friend had the rigatoni with short ribs and all were amazing. The last two visits, we both had the Steak Frites, cooked to a perfect medium rare -- only to be described as yummy, yummy, yummy. We are always to full to order dessert, but as they pass us on the way to other tables, they really look delicious. This is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant, with food and service elevated to a higher level. Put this on your must visit list, you won't regret it, rather, you will become a regular!

    A delicious dinner served by a young and professional team member. Arian recommended the salmon dish, delicious. The Caesar salad with grilled shrimp, perfect. And Arian picked a great white wine, but, his presentation of your wine is something everyone should experience.

    Italian heavy menu. Food was excellent. We had the short rib rigatoni, chicken scarapiello and the calamari for an app. All were excellent. The sauce served with the calamari was good. My only comment was it made the calamari a little soggy on the bottom. But I would opder it every time I go. This restaurant is the crown jewel of the New Providence restaurant scene.

    We came here to celebrate an early Valentines Day, and while we enjoyed the food, it wasn’t outstanding. The short ribs in the short rib rigatoni were delicious, but didn’t seemed to be cooked in the sauce, so it was pretty much pasta and sauce, with short ribs on top. The lobster ravioli was good, but had a lot of pepper flakes in them. The service though was outstanding, and I would give them another chance for that reason alone.

    Very good meal if you don’t mind waiting for over an hour just to get a drink. More than 2.5 hours to get the main course. Overheard many others complaining about similar delays. Wait staff was very competent and apologetic on their rare appearances. This was our first time eating there so hoping that it was just an aberration. Not sure whether or not to give it a second chance.

    Providence Bar and KitchenResponded on February 9, 2022

    Dear Customer, We would like to first thank you very much for trying our restaurant. Needless to say, it wasn’t the best night we’ve had. We were 2 servers and a bartender short that night, as staffing is a countywide issue we are all facing. We deeply regret that we couldn’t meet your and our expectations that night but we have addressed all the issues and as a manager, I give you my word that should you decide to give us another chance, I would personally take care of your table.
