We have dined many times for dinner at Capital Grille in Providence and always delicious!Brunch on Mother’s Day was disappointing. The steak was good but it sat on a greasy burnt hash brown and they gave me 1 asparagus. I’ll stick with dinner next time

Casually elegant Cafe Nuovo, at the Gondola Landing on Providence's famed Riverwalk, has been hailed by the New York Times and singled out by the Providence Journal as "RI's contribution to world class dining." The scenic waterside setting is matched only by the "fresh, seasonal flavor of Cafe Nuovo's contemporary American cuisine and heavenly dessert creations." Through glass curtain walls or while dining al fresco on the piazza, patrons enjoy attentive service and commanding city views while the river and gondolas roll by. Free valet parking evenings. **Sunday Open for Waterfire, Graduations, some Holidays or private functions

The food choices and quality were excellent, as usual. The view of the river is delightful. Justin was a wonderful waiter, quite attentive to my guest's allergy concerns. The desserts are unusual and wonderful. I always have a wonderful experience there.

I have been to Maria’s multiple times now, been seated in almost all of the rooms and have had many different waiters, waitresses and bartenders. Simply an outstanding experience every time whether it’s with my wife, family or friends. We all feel taken care of and satisfied when leaving. The specials each time knock my socks clean off and even the regular menu has great go-to’s. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys good eats and brings an appetite to the table. Mangia mangia!

Wonderful Mother’s Day dinner! The halibut special with puréed peas was recommended and I’m so happy I got it. The fish was perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. My friend had the sirloin, again perfectly prepared medium rare, with sautéed mushrooms and onions and a side of mashed potatoes. Dessert was a crème brûlée with a candied Meyer Lemon crust, to die for! Literally everything from our cocktails to dessert was delicious. Our server was so friendly and attentive and made the whole experience that much more special. It is a little loud however, so dinner conversation can be challenging to hear. I will definitely be back!
