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

We stopped here to have a cocktail and an appetizer and was impressed with how cozy and quaint the restaurant/bar was, the pumpkin hummus was unbelievable… The best we ever had. 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

An original menu. Friendly service and a place where food matters. The wine selections is also very decent.

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

We visited this restaurant while travelling with a group. The restaurant itself has a cosy atmosphere. The initial service, when offering the map and ordering drinks took a bit long from my perspective, but not annoyingly. We had the oysters as starters to share - phantastic, local, fresh! As main course I had the burger - see picture attached. Was... More

Great place to eat, different entrees on the menu. Had the giant shrimp cocktail, and they were giant and very firm and tasty. Did the Resturant week prefix menu and it was great. The berries and cream for dessert was amazing.
