Outdoor Dining in Providence (or a stunning room)?

musteat May 7, 2013 08:32 AM

Looking to have a post-graduation luncheon or dinner with outdoor seating or major character. I am not from Providence, but through some searching have the following ideas.

My list:
Dorrance (no outdoor, though)
Waterman Grille
Hemenway's
Café Nuovo

Thoughts / suggestions? Thank you very much!

    I've held a couple of corporate events at the Waterman Grille, which has beautiful event spaces. They've got a gorgeous room on the ground floor, that while indoor, is at the same level of the water and is basically floor to ceiling windows. I believe they also have patio space, but have never held an event there.

      Thanks for the feedback on Waterman. I think this may be the place. The grad. wants outdoor dining and quality food. Pics and menu looked good.

      Personally, although not outside, the room at Loie Fuller's is stunning and one-of-a-kind. Talk about character! Great food at reasonable prices is a huge bonus.

        Wow, what a great Art Nouveau room. We'd prefer to do lunch, but I'll have to make a trip to try this myself.
