Went here for a birthday dinner for my husband. The staff were wonderful and so attentive. We went for the chefs course and were astounded at the amount of food we were given. Absolutely delicious, decadent. High attention to detail with every bite. Well worth the price! Would recommend to anyone for a special occasion! Recommend to fast before going, my husband and I were bursting at the seams once we finished!

Great all around experience. The service was top notch and laidback. Portions more generous than we expected, yet not too much.

Annoyed they didn’t have there regular 3 menu options since it was valentines weekend *not day* weekend and didn’t give any notice to that prior to coming. In my opinion it’s just way to expensive for what it is.

You really feel welcome, the decor is pretty simple and the food is amazing. We went on valentines day with a pre fixe menu and they had so many courses it was difficult to keep track. Each course is the size of a half dollar but by the time we finished the meal we were both satisfied. I am glad we went on a prefix menu day i think it would be difficult to pick the individual courses myself frankly. Sure it is pricey.

Yes it's expensive, but it is SOOOO worth it. The food is just perfect, every single bite. The waiters - so many of them, so friendly and they make you feel like they just love making you happy - perfect service. They kept bringing us little sample things to try (no charge) - wow, each one was amazing. We were too stuffed for dessert but they brought us 5-6 sample dessert bites anyway.

In the end it was just under $300 including two main dishes, two starters, two glasses of wine, all the free stuff including fantastic bread and kelp butter (no kidding), and a pretty big tip. Not so bad, really.

I'll be back!

I went to Providence with my partner to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. We were not disappointed! This is unequivocally the best meal I have ever had at a restaurant. We had the Chef’s Tasting and all 17 dishes were phenomenal. I highly recommend.

My friends and I were very much looking forward to a special night out with a gift card from my nephews ($1,000). The 3 of us arrived and enjoyed an adult beverage at the cozy bar just inside the door. Our bar tender was very friendly and attentive. When we were seated we were greeted by a staff of 3 to make sure our dining experience would be top notch.

All were well versed with the menu and alternative options however not so much for the wine pairing portion of the experience. Very quick to explain a little about the wine and walk away. Maybe it was because our reservation was 9:15pm on a Wednesday night. The food portions were obviously very small (as expected) but extremely salty. The wine pairing for 1 of the 5 were on point.

All of that set aside, I thought the bad taste left in our mouth would be the very bitter night cap coffee however, it was not. Our tab came out to $927.00, we paid with the $1,000 gift along with $190 cash tip. The attendant returned the gift card with a balance of $72. As we were leaving the restaurant, we were told by the same attendant that the card would not have any value left on it. That means they took the cash tip of $190 plus the left over balance of $72 and pocketed the money. There was no further explanation as to why.

For such a "classy establishment" that was very LOWBROW. Extremely tacky.

The meal was 3.5 hrs long but did not seem that long. The staff ensured our glasses were full, finished plates were promptly removed, crumbs cleaned off every time they come to the table.

We chose the Chefs Tasting Menu. The food was awesome! Savor every bite because each dish is a little different! Do not rush through it.

We went to celebrate our anniversary; received nice notes and special treats. Restaurant had called to ask about dietary restrictions prior and made accommodations. We enjoyed several delicious courses immersed in unique and exotic flavors. Service was impeccable. Would definitely return.
