We ate at Providence Coal Fired Pizza before attending a show at PPAC with two teenagers so we were looking for a great pizza menu. We got it. We ordered a traditional marguerita and the baby bella. The girls were so impressed with the baby bella they kept stealing it! The pizzas were absolutely delicious. Great crust, the hint of coal flavor and the toppings were outrageously yummy. We all agreed it was a great experience before the show. My one suggestion- improve the dessert menu. We were ready to indulge in some dessert but mousse and pudding were not enticing. We were looking for ice cream, bread pudding or other decadent desserts. That would have elevated our experience for sure! More

There were two things that I wasn't crazy about - the noise level, hard to hear from husband from across the table. Also, the tables are pretty crammed in so there was hardly enough room to view the menu on the table. I knocked over my water glass with the menu when I was trying to read it. Could use a little more room at the tables! Otherwise, we loved it! More

Overall the food was very good and I enjoyed the waiters suggestion for wine. I was really happy with the sea bass it might have been better with more grill marks. All of the veggie sides were good. I liked the earthy taste of the asparagus and the rainbow carrots were perfectly roasted. The service was great but it was almost too much having a waiter that greeted us and took drink orders, a waiter that served water, a waiter that took our order and a waiter that dropped off food and asked how everything was. Overall nice experience and convenient location at the Omni. More

Wait staff were very flexible with allowing us to move our seating. Moscow Mule was served in a tall glass as opposed to a copper mug. Tasted a bit like lime, but still very delicious. The live music was nice. I was anticipating Greek music. The music tended to sound the same "atmosphere" music, nothing ethnic about the music. Still enjoyable. Cheese and meat plate for the two of us was adequate (smaller size). Dinner was a form of Beef Stew over Orzo. Delicious and would be perfect for a cold winter night. More

I have been patronizing The Fire for a long, long time. The staff is terrific! They perform their jobs with efficiently and personality. I always feel very comfortable at The Fire whether it is for a quick bite at the bar or dining at a table with friends. For example, my Family and I have attended the "Feast of the Seven Fishes" the last 3 Christmas Eves. It was most enjoyable. Although the food offerings are delicious, I am looking forward to a seasonal change in the menu, especially the seafood offerings for summer Also, I am disappointed that the restaurant doesn't serve lunch at least 2 days during the week. Nonetheless, The Fire is the place to go. Consistent good food, especially the pizzas, great bar specials every afternoon, friendly staff, and pleasant surroundings. More

First time there, and point blank the food wasn’t very good flavor wise...let’s say bland for the most part. My husband and I went on a date there and we started off with the cauliflower bites as an appetizer (which were great! The only thing other than the fries though) then we had our entrees. I had the ginger noodle bowl, which to be honest I took a gamble on because I didn’t know what to expect. My husband got one of the burgers there and fries. The biggest complaint I have of that entire visit was that we asked for the burger to be cooked medium because we love pink in our burger, but the burger was cooked very well done. You can tell the difference in taste between a well done burger and a burger cooked medium, as well as the color in the middle. We ate it though, Tipped very well and I’m not planning on going back again. Who knows how that restaurant has stayed open but I will surely divert my friends from going there. It reminded me of a trendy looking Greg’s restaurant. More

Discover Providence

Long known for its classic New England seafood, Providence has also recently garnered a reputation for fine contemporary dining options. As a college town, it offers an abundance of laid-back, reasonably priced restaurants. But because the Johnson and Wales University campus is home to a well-respected culinary arts program, the town has become a popular proving ground for up-and-coming chefs. Even Providence's college students know and expect good food, which keeps the standards in this waterside city exceptionally high. The food options have also been heavily influenced by the city's proximity to Boston and New York. That means a lot of hearty, locally sourced dishes and ample pizza options. Providence's palate is also quite sophisticated, with restaurants serving up everything including French, Swiss, Italian and even vegan cuisine.
