I want to start this post by saying I am kind of upset that I did not take any pictures during my Birthday Dinner at Providence Oyster Bar. But, with that said I think that is a testament to how wonderful the food and the service is here. I was having such a wonderful experience that I completely forgot to take a photo. I did not pick up my phone once, and that ladies and gentleman made for an even better evening. Put down the phones, enjoy your food, and enjoy your company.
Anyway, let’s get on to the good stuff. First of all or waiter was one of the most hospitable and engaging waiters I have ever had the pleasure of meeting at any restaurant I have been to. And it is such a shame I cannot remember his name because he was wonderful. I will definitely be back and I will update this post with his name for sure! He is a big reason that I will keep coming back.
We started our meal with a couple of different types of oysters. The Savage Blonde oysters from Prince Edward Island were my favorite of the ones that we tried. I paired the oysters with a glass of Domaine Chandon Rose, a sparkling Rose which is one of my favorites.
For my entrée I knew I wanted to treat myself with one of my favorite things – lobster. And boy was I eyeing the Lobster Saute. The dish consisted of fresh lobster meat, spinach, oven roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, saffron cream, and linguini pasta. This dish was incredible. Packed with so much flavor and SO MUCH lobster. I was in literal heaven. My boyfriend went with the special which was a Dijon Crusted Filet with truffle mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. That steak was cooked to perfection and I was in love with the creamy mashed potatoes.
To end the evening our incredible waiter surprised me with a scoop of their homemade fudge ripple ice cream with a candle to top it off. It was the perfect end to a perfect meal.
I cannot end this post without telling you about their incredible “Appy Hour”. On Monday’s from 4 – 6:30 and Tuesday through Sunday from 3 – 6:30 you can order from their Appy Hour menu that literally has everything you could ever want including dollar oysters, littlenecks, and cherrystones, as well as two dollar (giant) shrimp.
Providence Oyster Bar is located in the heart of Federal Hill, and is a must when visiting Providence!
