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.

Pot au Feu is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 398.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Food excellent. Service a little slow. A business type deal with perhaps owner or manager concerning wine or champagne took place behind our table. This seemed very inappropriate and made our dining experience less enjoyable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We sat down at our reservation time, but it took a full 30 minutes before we got our wine and ordered. No bread was offered. After that delay the rest of the service was more timely.
