Best place to watch Waterfire – One of the top locations in the City, you won't find a better place to watch waterfire in the summer. Only problem with this restaurant is that it's CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New Chef, New Menu, New Providence Hot Spot – Last week a friend refered me to Bella Vista Restaurant. I honestly must say that I had no idea the space overlooking Waterfront Park served food. I had always thought it was just a club. Well let me say that after eating there, this place is serving the best food in the city. My wife and I could not decide from the wide choices on the menu, so the Maitre'd Bryce recomended the chef's tasting menu; 5 courses for $75. What a great experience that turned out to be, I think it ended up being 8 courses that played out like a symphony of flavors, colors, and textures that I have never experinced before. I highly recomend Bella Vista to anyone looking for a great dining experience. P.S. Best View this side of the Grand Canyon.

Best Providence Dining Experience – From the moment I arrived I was impressed by the professional staff of valets, maitre'd, and especially the service. My server was extremely knowledgeble of the dinner menu, and offered a few wine recommendations. We took his advice on a bottle of Chateau Musar which was oddly enough from Lebanon, and as he informed us it was amazing and paired beutifully with our entrees. My partner had a Grilled Sirloin that was served with these amazing fried balls of potatoes, and a rich sauce redolent of cognac and cracked pepper. I chose the special which came highly recommended, the specialty pork from Japan was served two different styles, braised ribs and grilled loin. In short the whole experience was amazing from the tenative and helpful service, to the amazing food coming out of the kitchen from Chef Todd Lesakowski, this is a restaurant I will surely frequent.

This upscale, updated restaurant has a beautiful view of Waterplace Park. – In Short
Location, location, location. No doubt about it, Bella Vista has a good one. The restaurant is as close as you can get to Waterplace Park without officially becoming part of it. During the winter, the upscale business crowd takes in the scenery from the window-encased dining room. But when the temperature rises, head out to the brick patio. Entrees range from lobster ravioli to sake salmon.
