We went there for New Year Day lunch. The food was very good. The best thing was the building itself, very unique, great parking and near other shops. One odd thing was that we had to ask for bread, i thought it should have come with the meal.

Every now and then, it is wonderful to treat your self to a dining establishment that offers food "far from the maddening crowd". Dinner was excellent. I had swordfish that was prepared as moist as could be. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was relaxing!

Three couples decided we wanted to go out for a special evening and had 7:30 reservations on a Friday night. We arrived around 7:00 and met at the bar to have drinks before dinner. A little before 7:30, a hostess approached us to say our table was ready. We paid the bar bill and followed her to the dining area. We asked where the coat room was and she showed us the way. After we checked our coats, we were ready to follow the hostess but she wasn't there. We looked for her at the desk and couldn't find her. While our group of six was standing there waiting, the maitre'd came over and told us we couldn't stand there and we should move to the bar. We explained that the hostess told us our table was ready. He then asked us what time our reservations were. We said "7:30". This little man looked at his watch and told us it wasn't 7:30 yet. Duh? We told him that we had just given up seats at the bar because of the hostess. He didn't care. There was no excuse for his rudeness.
As the night went on, things went downhill. Another table's food was brought to our table, one of the servers was pouring olive oil into a divided dish as the oil ran down his finger, a glass of wine that no one ordered was brought to us, when the food came out, the server had no idea who ordered what, and FINALLY - we were given another table's bill. Just poor attention to service and detail. Too many servers yet not very efficient. Four different people serviced our table. Our original waitress apologized at least 4 times for their mistakes.
Will any of us go back? Probably not. And not so much because of the lousy service, mostly because the maitre'd set the tone for the evening with his nasty attitude.

Lunch at Chapel Grille was a very nice experience. We wanted to share a pizza and salad and the server suggested we try the half serving of pizza so we would each actually have our own salad. The pizza was excellent since we love the thin crusted type and the salad serving quite adequate. We totally enjoyed the atmosphere and the meal.

Went to the Chapel Grill in RI tonight. The waiter spilled red wine on my cream dress. The manage refused to reimburse me for a dress that I pulled up on the Anthroplogie website as new and $258. This was my first time wearing this dress and now it is ruined. I was told to dry clean it and get a cleaning bill that they can run through accounts payable. The manager was rude and the staff was not over the top rude telling me "it was an accident" as if I'm supposed to accept that my dress is ruined and move on. For a place with scallops 1/3 the size you typically see in New England and a waiter that brings ketchup out long after the fries have cooled down, I guess you cannot be surprised as I was told by all the women in the ladies room that I showed my ruined dress to. My work dinner ruined. I'm crying and the general manager is yelling at me. Cannot wait to call the BBB and get my dress replaced. I will NEVER go here again. Rude with so so food and an immature wine list.
