Artwork and Dining. This is one of those not so rare moments that I remember more about the artwork in the restaurant and less about what I ate. The food was great, but I really noticed the artwork: original paintings and some prints. I like that they paid attention to making a great environment that complemented great cooking.
Best French Restaurant in RI. I've been going to Chez Pascal for years. Food is exceptional, as well as the (reasonably priced) wine list. Staff is attentive and knowledgable. Everyone who knows French food appreciates this restaurant. Check out there website for wine tastings, art auctions, or "chocolate dinners" by Garrison Confections. Unreal :)
What a shame. We had heard good things and the food was really great but the service was terrible. I'm not talking about silly picky things, the waiter didn't even come over for fifteen minutes. Drinks staggered to the table in five minute intervals so toasting our celebrating friends was out of the question. One diner was without a fork until his food was cold.
Clearly there is talent in the kitchen but not in the decor and certainly not in the service. I assured our out of town friends that Providence does have great restaurants, this is not one of them.
Waiter should not be the entertainment.
Went to Chez last Friday. The waiter was in our face all night long. We were meeting friends we had not seen in a while and the waiter thought he was there to entertain us. He did not serve the wine we asked for - told us it was no good - I then to think they were out of it and he was not being honest. He kept trying to talk us into more than we wanted and generally annoying.
Food was OK not spectacular and portions were French hence value was marginal. I was not WOW'd by Chez and perhaps won't visit there again.
Spectacular. Had a great experience at Chez Pascal. CP delivers first-class cuisine in a friendly, casual manner with a little neighborhood vibe. The menu was diverse but the cold night led me to the heavy stuff. The foie gras appetizer was spectacular. My heart begged for atherosclerotic mercy when I saw it, a large portion, made to seem even larger atop a crunchy, buttery support of some type of dark bread (advertised as "chocolate"). Accompanied by a vanilla-infused garnish, the complimenting textures and flavors of this dish were wonderful. The cassoulet entree contained the expected duck leg confit along with other delectable bits of meats and homemade sausage. My partner dined on the lighter side, with positive comments on the crabcakes and grouper. Dessert was a rich almond torte, deliciously caramelized on top and bottom, and topped with pear ice cream. Go!
A French restaurant without attitude? If you don't think that's possible, this quietly sophisticated bistro will change your mind..
With its dark wood paneling, bentwood chairs and quaint lace curtains, this small French bistro on the East Side of Providence has all the style associated with Paris without resorting to the haughtiness that often comes with it. In warmer weather, diners can enjoy everything alfresco at the bistro tables set up on the sidewalk. Sundays offer the best value, with a fixed-price menu.
There's no better choice for an appetizer than the seafood crepe, a blanket of soft dough filled with shrimp, scallops, mussels and lobster meat, served with lobster sauce.The classic French entrees include sole with lobster sauce and roasted chicken deliciously seasoned with rosemary, thyme and garlic. Enhance the food and the ambience with a glass of French wine or mixed drink from the bar.
