From the other reviews I expected a better than good experience. It was okay. Service a bit uppity, not very attentive.

Nice little cozy restaurant in historic Providence 7/20/2006

My partner and I went to this restaurant as part of our recent visit to Boston for our yearly vacation. We heard about it as part of their Restaurant Week where you have a fixed price menu and just a couple of food choices and a few courses to choose from. Parking for the restaurant is only really available at the pay lot behind the building ($6) as street parking in this part of town is non existent. Also, you have to look really hard to see this tiny little place or you'll miss it! The atmosphere was very cozy without being cramped, sort of like a nice romantic Ney York restaurant you'd like to go back to. The wait staff was adequate, however, they weren't all that attentive (I had to ask for a water refill, etc.). The food was a mixed experience. New Rivers is one of what I like to call the ""neuveau riche"" restaurants that thinks the only way they can be successful is to charge a lot of money for food supposed to be ""fancy,"" and in tiny portions. I had the mixed grill with steak, shrimp, and sausage. There were two shrimp, about 4 ounces of steak and probably 2 ounces of sausage (about four bites of sausage and six of steak). I'm DEFINITELY not a big eater, but when I'm spending $30 on a meal, I'd like there to be more than 6 ounces of food on my plate. The shrimp were done to perfection, however, with a great smoky taste and the home made sausage was fairly good. My partner had the blue fish and it was very fresh, prepared well. The lemon tart for dessert was very good. Overall, this is a good restaurant, I would recommend it, but go prepared to spend at least $80 and not be stuffed with food when you leave. Pros: Great atmosphere, Fairly good food Cons: Parking, High prices, Small portions more
