Pot au Feu is so much more than a restaurant... Established in 1972 we believe our cozy Bistro is the oldest French Bistro in America. Pot au Feu kicked off the Providence Restaurant Renaissance being the first to offer something other than "steak, spaghetti and chow mien". In 1875 workman carved the massive stones which became the foundation of the exquisite Wilcox Building. You can still see the drill and chisel marks on the Bistro walls. Why just tour history when you can dine in it at Pot au Feu? In 1972 America was just discovering Julia Child and a whole new world of food. Pot au Feu lead the way making every recipe from scratch from the highest quality local ingredients, offering fine wines by the glass not just the bottle, introducing "new" California wines and historic French favorites but most important of all the "espirit" that inspires Pot au Feu is the idea that life is at its fullest when experienced around a table brimming with delicious food, good wine, intriguing conversation, friendship and love - l'amour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Owner Bob Burke visited the table to ensure everything was to our liking. It was! Our server, Antigone, was attentive, but not cloying. Its the one spot in Providence that we always return to. Oct 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great atmosphere, food and service A+A+A+++ Aug 10, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The food was bland, lukewarm, over cooked and some of the vegetables tasted like they came from a can. That was the vegetable crepe. The stuffed chicken was bland and had the consistency of being boiled. I was a big fan of the restaurant 20 years ago. This was a huge disappointment. Jun 27, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by The French onion soup was fabulous. All entrees were great, and the desserts were to die for! Service was great also. We lingered for quite a while, and despite the fact that the hour was late, we did not feel at all rushed by the wait staff. Apr 14, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Always wonderful. Aug 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by The service was great. The food was good but certainly did not justify the cost. I have had equally good, and better, food at other restaurants for a lot less money. Apr 14, 2014
