Can really recommend this cozy bistro in the Jewelry district of Providence, just across the river from Brown University. It was a quiet evening with great service, and the real classics! Everything is like it would be in France from the dijon vinaigrette to the...More

I have been coming to Pot au Feu for over 30 years and although it is still good, it is no longer great. It begins with the bread. They used to have wonderful crusty French bread served warm from the oven. I used to go...More

We arrived at our hotel late and when asked for a place to get a late meal was waved in a general direction. So we started down the street passing disappointing options. After a few steps a glance down a side street, we spotted this...More

Went with family for dinner and enjoyed it immensely. Had 2 beef bouruignon, lamb shank, coquilles st Jacques, and the chicken livers. Had to send the livers back as they were way over cooked. The lamb shank was super tender, the beef was good and...More

The staff couldn't have been nicer, but the food was not bad, but horrible. It begins with the "French" bread, which doesn't resemble anything like bread. The salads, were wilted mescalun thrown on plates and then came right out the refrigerator to table. The escargot...More

This place is very much a "has-been". I wonder whether the owner actually tastes the food out of the kitchen because our meal there last Friday was more like cafeteria slop. It was totally without salt. The Escargot was totally tasteless. The duck dish tasted...More

Well overall a disappointing meal. I understand things may not be at their best during a restaurant week but this was poor. Let me begin by stating that the service was efficient and apologetic for the shortcomings of the kitchen. However, the food is where...More
