The River Social
Overall, everything was great. Mimosa and Bloody Marys where great!
excellent food, wonderful river view, yummy mezza plate, delicious salmon, great service. will definitely go back.
Providence needed The River Social. There, on the waterfront. The nostalgic view. It;s got it all. Returning soon!
We had a wonderful brunch! The food was absolutely delicious as were the drinks. The service was gracious. We can’t wait to go back this summer when we can sit outside along the river walk. A great addition to the Providence restaurant scene! Will definitely be back.
Nice, small place right on the river walk. Nice menu, good food, good cocktails.
This was the cutest place ever. Very trendy and right on the water. It was a little difficult to find the restaurant since I was from out of town but when I found it, WOW is all I have to say. The decor was amazing, the food was good. I got the salmon avocado toast with tater tots, because when was the last time you had tater tots? Highly recommend. Everything on the menu looked great!
This is a small restaurant on the on Providence River Walk. The decor is amazing especially the lamps which I believe may reflect the owner's cultural heritage. We ordered the Forbidden Rice to go with the Special Tower for Two. Both dishes were good. The Forbidden Rice (black rice) had a nutty flavor and aroma. The Special Tower for Two came with 3 skewers of chicken and lamb shish kabobs. The kabobs were served with BBQ, tahini and labneh dipping sauces. The kabobs were a little dry and having just visited Istanbul this past December, lacked seasoning. Service was fine and we met the owner too. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we would return to try some of the entries
Food is quite good. Very nice ambiance as well. Then portions aren't large. We found the 3 mezzelate (appetizer spreads with vegetables and pita for dipping) plus the social tower for two was just enough food. Michealla was an excellent and extremely pleasant waitress and the owner took the time to introduce himself. Great location with a window view of the river (and Water fire when it is scheduled). Will definitely return.
Multiple mistakes with our order from drinks to entrees
Dante was a very gracious and attentive waiter. I had the Octopus as my meal while my husband had the lamb. Everything was delicious. Perfect spot mid week for a romantic dinner. There was one large table and a few seats at the bar with guests. This restaurant opened in January. It will be very popular in the warmer evenings.
Highly suggest it.
Worth trying. Great service - not smothering, not absent. Very friendly. The Tower was excellent, but expensive. Came out last, which seemed odd. Polenta served with ragout was not creamy. Willing to go back and try other items. Why did I think my dessert would have poached pears?
I absolutely love this restaurant! It’s so cute and the food is amazing. The service was great and the servers and very nice. Definitely would recommend it!
The food is delicious and the atmosphere is very nice!
Great food and great service. Can't wait to go back during WaterFire
Atmosphere, furniture and decor was great! Service was a bit slow. Ordered Spicy Feta Cheese for an app and it only came with 4 slices of pita bread. Asked for more pita and that took a good 15mins. Ordered a caesar salad with salmon for my dinner. Salmon and salad was great but no croutons and the salad came in a starter salad dish. I think for an entree it would be more presentable in a larger dish...at least make the customer think they are getting a grand salad for the price they are paying. It ended up being just the right amount of food, but again, presentation and customer value is key. My husband ordered the lamb. The presentation there was nice but the portion lacking. He had two small lollipops and after finishing was still hungry. I did have two of the Social Butterfly cocktail...that was tasty, although each drink took about 8-10 minutes. In a small place with two bartenders it shouldn't take that long.
The service was fantastic. Great food and drinks. We had the hummus, shrimp and chips, salmon, and mushroom polenta. Everything was excellent. Definitely recommend.
