i made a reservation specifically for outside, when i got there they placed us inside and when i said can we sit outside like i reserved i was told “no those tables are reserved” however i had a reservation!!! and got stuck inside the service was slow. my waitress came to our table 3 times in total. our food was brought out at different times making the food cold by the time the last order came out which is unprofessional and quite honestly annoying. we had empty glasses for 95% of the dining because our waitress was always never to be found and not caring about her table. truly unprofessional. not worth the money spent on my bill.
Great brunch with good views and awesome service. The only thing missing was the music outside to complement the experience.
Ill get to the point. Food and service were EXCELLENT! Front of house, more specifically hostess was overwhelmed when checking in. I will say it was very busy but felt I had to continue to check with the hostess and wait a significant amount of time to be seated when a table was available... a little more organization and perhaps some additional help would've been the proverbial icing on the cake!
The river social is my go to when I return to Providence! No matter what! This place is one of the Go-To places in PVD.
First time there, outdoor dining was amazing. Perfect sunny Sunday morning (great location with sun beaming down) with amazing food!
I loved the feel of the river social. i definitely think that directions to the restaurant could’ve been clearer. Our waitress Jenna was so nice and fun! Will definitely be back!
Nice place, right by the river walk. Service was spot on. Waitress/ bar tenders very attentive. Food was very good. Very nice place
Perfect day to sit waterfront on their patio! The food was yummy, and the bottomless mimosas were perfect! So many flavors to choose from!
Really good experience just service was a bit delayed. Either way I enjoyed myself
The food and service was top notch. Great atmosphere
The food was amazing ..
This is such a great place to meet with friends and enjoy good food and drinks! Loved it.
We are not local so struggled finding the restaurant . The River Social is located below Jackys. You can see Jacky’s from the street but River social is below along the River so you need to walk around the Waterplace Park . You can not see the River social as you drive Memorial Blvd . You can use Jacky’s valet or the Fidelity building parking garage .
Food was excellent .
Margaritas were nicely balanced .
Hummus was fresh .
Staff were attentive and polite .
Had a very nice dinner in a full restaurant .
Covid rules in place .
Felt safe .
Some dishes were a wee too spicy but still delicious . I prefer mild spices but I eagerly enjoyed the meal . Delicious , fresh , and a pleasant meal . You can read other reviews for nuts and bolts . Only posted cause we could not find the joint . We drove 60 miles looking for good food .
Food was excellent, especially the spicy feta cheese and the hummus. Our server Jenna was tremendous.
I will definitely be returning here. The food was delicious and the drinks as well!
Staff was polite and ambiance was nice. The food was terrible. I don’t believe anything was fresh and made on-site.
I really loved this restaurant for a quiet, delicious, relaxing dinner. We don't go out often, so this was a treat. We loved every menu item and drink we had. The service was fantastic. At least three servers/staff checked in on our table regularly and refilled our drinks as requested. The staff seemed to work together really well and it made for a seamless meal. Would 100% recommend for a date night or small group gathering. There was even someone enjoying his meal alone and he seemed to be having a nice time too!
Love this place. Great vibe, the music sets the tone for a great meal. Shout out to Cortney the hotesses with the most-EST. FOOD IS PHENOMENAL. I will be there again. So book your table NOW, because i will get mine, now thats 1 less table for you.
Food is as delicious and great service. We arrived 20 minutes early as we didn’t realize it was only open for dinner. They did let us in so we wouldn’t freeze. The lamb tacos were to die for. Highly recommend this place
Food was okay, small portions. Menu was not specific- I ordered the Mediterranean
Two eggs cooked in a spiced tomato sauce with garlic, roasted red peppers and Mediterranean spices and herb- did not specify that the egg was poached. Let the waitress know i did not like it however was still charged.
Ordered chicken and waffles and the chicken was dry and over fried
Dined here on valentines day for brunch and it was amazing! Highly recommend the sesame toast and eggs benedict with tater tots. Only downside is having to park on the street or in a parking garage since it is in waterplace.
The River Social is an exceptional place to dine. My friends and I went for the Galentine's meal and were more than happy with our 3-course meal, the portion sizes, and the staff!
Had an amazing brunch, tried the smoked salmon avocado toast, Bloody Mary, and bottomless mimosas!
It’s one of the best place to take breakfast in Providence
We used to love this place . Good location, cozy inside and food has improved with the new chef. However service is really bad , they need more staff .
Hi dear, Sorry for your experience. Virus hit our business very bad for entire year as other hospitality business. We have lost our great servers and team members during this time. Also unemployment benefits and virus fear makes even harder for business like us to hire a new hospitality staff. But we are working on it planning to increase our professional staff. I hope we see you back soon! Thank you for supporting us! Stay Safe.
A great place for some girl time for sure. Staff and food are amazing. Friendly service.
The food was absolutely delicious! Came with my boyfriend for his birthday and loved the entire experience from the first round of drinks to the dessert. We will definitely be returning to try more of the menu. Food was seasoned perfectly and tasted super fresh. A little pricey but well worth it.
Great place to go out for a nice delicious meal and cocktails. We will definitely be back.
Amazing food, drinks, service, and soundtrack! Can’t wait to go back.
The food at The River Social (for brunch) was amazing and I plan to go back! The ambiance is super cool and very comfortable. My only complaint is that there was only one server/bartender (it was one person for both) so service of my bottomless mimosas was a tad bit slow. Also, the server/bartender caught a bit of an attitude with us at the end of our meal when I asked about getting a to go order at the end of our brunch. Nonetheless, we had a great time and again, the food is BOMB!
The CUTEST place! Brunch was absolutely delicious and the service was great! Will definitely be back!!!
Parking may be limited as the restaurant is located right in Water Place Park. The restaurant was smaller than I expected but it was very beautiful and relaxing. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. The server was very attentive and polite. I would definitely come back.
This was my first time dining here at The River Social. A few friends and myself went to Sunday Brunch. We all ordered bottomless mimosas and the lobster avocado toast. The mimosas were good and kept coming. But the food itself was rather disappointing. The avocado toast was served on what seemed like a piece of white Wonderbread. Very disappointed. I expected better food since this place seemed so nice and the ambiance seems so high end.
Just ok. A bit expensive for what we got. My husband did rave about the dessert though!
Wonderful food; beautiful locations; terrific staff. No complaints whatsoever....although drink 'portions' were....how do you say? a bit, well......not exactly generous. Minor comment, though.
service was great and the food was delicious
I will go back soon
We had the chicken entre, steak entre, rosemary garlic wings and cheesecake and it was all incredibly flavorful
Although it is hard to find, it is situated on the river. Lovely setting, quiet. Service was excellent and attentive. Mediterranean omelet was delicious and interesting. Recommend!
