Beautiful Loft Room Wedding for a Small Party
We had a small wedding of about 20 people, but still wanted to have an elegant, formal dinner to treat our guests to after our ceremony. We were bringing an Italian and Chinese family together, so good food was very important to us. We tried a few elegant fine dining establishments around Providence that had a good fit for the size of our party, but were not particularly impressed with the food. We tried the food at Waterman Grille and knew it would be perfect. The manager showed us the different rooms that they offered, and The Loft was exactly what we wanted--it is a perfect mix of elegant and cozy.Sent on 04/02/2019
I worked with Tina to organize the event, and she is incredibly friendly and responsive. She made sure that everything was taken care of without making me feel overwhelmed, and the whole experience was much less stressful than I was anticipating! They have different wedding packages that made it easy to make the initial decisions, and afterwards Tina helped us determine the best format for the dinner and was so great with helping us implement the ideas we had to add a personal touch to the dinner.
The servers were so friendly and accommodating during the dinner and everyone was very impressed with the food. The dinner turned out perfectly and the pictures that everyone took were lovely because of the beautiful room. I would highly recommend this restaurant and The Loft room for any smaller wedding party or formal event!

We had our rehearsal dinner in the room upstairs at Waterman Grille and was wonderful. The room is nice and the views are very pretty too. We had about 30 people, I wouldn't recommend any more people than that for the space. The staff was very friendly, and the food and drinks were great too!Sent on 09/27/2016
