    We were returning from Maine and overnighted in Providence. So glad we dined at the Dorrance! We had the best salmon ever and also enjoyed everything else we ordered. Service was superb. Tables were far apart so we felt safe. We would love to return.

    The space is gorgeous and intimate. Elijah was our server and he was awesome, attentive and professional. The food was excellent as well. Homemade past was delicious and the fish was very fresh. Definitely worth going.

    The atmosphere and the food was wonderful. Everyone from The Dorrance was so friendly and Brian, our server, was outstanding. He was attentive but not intrusive and he handled all our requests quickly and with a very positive attitude. We could tell he was smiling even though he wore his mask. Thanks to everyone at The Dorrance for a memorable evening!

    Enjoyed their restaurant week offer. 3 course dinner menu with cocktail paring. Not very impressive food, but good and really value for money. The staff members were very nice and the interior is gorgeous. A lovely place to visit again.
