It is a very nice and comfortable setting. The waiters are good and service is excellent. The food itself is worth it all.

From the time I called to make a reservation, I knew this place would be good. We drove by many times when visiting our college daughter. Pleasant knowledgable staff. Food Explosion...I love the way they pair foods and spices. Healthy modern cuisine with a fulfillment appetite.

I have been to New Rivers twice: once for a date night and once with a group of friends. I loved everything about this restaurant! Great cocktails and the food was perfect. The toasted quinoa and goat cheese crostini salad is amazing and everybody loved their entrees as well. This is definitely a great spot for a special night out... More

It came with pomegranate seeds on it andjust the perfect flavor, with warm bread. The mussels and tomatoes bruschetta appetizer was good... would've liked a few more mussels... but... More

To dinner with friends during a Waterfire evening. Made reservations for 7:30 and were seated just after 8. Was next to the hostess who kept bumping into the back of my chair throughout the evening. The menu requires a PhD to understand but we managed. Some good wines but very expensive. Appetizers were good - steamers were good but each... More

Several years ago we had a really memorable dinner at the bar here. Finding ourselves in Providence again, we were looking forward to the pleasure of dining at New Rivers again but with full table service this time. Big mistake. First, let me say that the food is delicious and designed to take full advantage of local, seasonal food. The... More
