About the Waterman Grille

Offering a setting that is unlike any other in Providence, Waterman Grille is situated along the Seekonk River in a former bridge gatehouse that dates back to 1871.

With its ageless brick, restored wood patinas and open kitchen, Waterman has become a neighborhood staple for its relaxed atmosphere and menu that encourages sharing. Our seasonal approach to cooking is helmed by Executive Chef Noah Metnick, who emboldens flavors with our signature wood-fired grill. In addition, our extensive and unique private dining offerings are an idyllic spot to host your next memorable event.

Noah Metnick Executive Chef

The creative and uncommon culinary finesse of Waterman Grille’s imaginative menus lie in the talented hands of Executive Chef Noah Metnick.

Born in Israel and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America he trained at the exclusive Maidstone Club in East Hampton, NY and the exquisite La Grenouille in New York City where his diligence and passion for excellence earned him the top spot as the restaurant’s executive chef. Today he delights guests with imaginative small plates and grilled specialties, each influenced by the elegance and art of fine French cuisine and the fresh, local bounty of New England.
