As always, from check in to the end of the dinner, everything was perfect. Great 3 course prix-fixe dinner menu during the week at $29.99. Good portion sizes. I ordered mussels as a first course and there were plenty, even to share with my husband. Monk fish was my main course and this was perfectly prepared. You don't see monk fish on many menus, so I am happy it has been on the menu here. Dessert was a yummy,moist polenta cake with honey ice cream! Service is always great here, with courses coming out just at the right time and service efficient but unobtrusive. Great view of the river from main dining room and warm wood interior gives a cozy, intimate feel. if you like bubbly cocktails, try the champagne cocktail- made with Prosecco, elderflower liquor, bitters and a sugar cube.

We all enjoyed our dishes, fresh and nicely presented. However we all felt there could have been a bit more seasoning. Great location, great ambiance and decor. We all said we'd go back in a flash and we will see you again when we next visit the RISD Museum. Booking on line was also a breeze. More

I’d been wanting to try this place for awhile and was not disappointed! My friend and I were seated at a cozy high top table in the back, but it didn’t feel disconnected. Enjoyed the spinach and ricotta dip, and were given more flatbread when we ran out! The pizza was amazing. Definitely enough for two people. Our server was great as well. Free valet was a major plus!

We had a lovely dinner with friends. Great atmosphere. Our table enjoyed good service and made varied menu selections. The chicken and salmon were reviewed as delicious! I unfortunately ordered the New York strip and asked for it to be “pink”, it wasn’t. The server did not ask me to check it and by the time he returned to the table it would of been awkward to the others to send it back. On a good note, the server was very helpful picking out our wine. Offered several to taste. Desserts were all amazing. We will definitely return and give it another try! More

We had the most wonderful Greek egg noodle dish made with a special bolognese sauce. It was a delightful blend of nutmeg and spices which I enjoyed very much.. The wine was light and fresh and complimented our food. My friend had a light fish dish which melted in your mouth. We shared our food and finished with coffee and dessert. The honey cake was so delicious I took another piece home to share later. I also bought a package of the noodles to try at home.They were so delicate. The ambiance was lovely. We sat upstairs in the mezzanine overlooking the main room. It was very romantic . The candles twinkled. The lights were dimmed. I would definitely return soon and try more of their food . More

Dinner was excellent. Usually I hate to go out on Valentine’s Day because of the crowds the quality of food goes down. But that not happen, my Salmon and my wife’s salmon was probably the best I’ve ever had. She had it the way it was suggested on the menu and I asked to have it with risotto and spinach and they both were unbelievable. Still my favorite restaurant, thanks for a great Valentine’s Day celebration Tavolo’s wine bar. Kasia was excellent 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

They were unruffled and dedicated to great service even though there were many special seating requests within the upper level area. It is a sign of terrific training and service that these requests never were an uphevel to other guests and were handled with genuine aplomb and professionalism. Looking forward to Easter Brunch at the Blue Fin as well as any excuse we can come up with to go for lunch, brunch, buffet or dinner. 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.
