Incomprensibly slow. our orders were botched and had to be redone due to food allergy cross contamination. Fortunately they realized their error. Very weak service recovery. Food was fine to good. Some cocktails are good. Ambience is the highlight. Dessert menu was uninspiring..

We are in love with tini tinis and colossal coconut shrimp! The alcove seating and unrushed atmosphere were the perfect setting for my daughter’s 21st birthday celebration. Peanut butter chocolate pie and cheesecake didn’t hurt either!!

Chair 5 at Break Hotel was such a wonderful experience for us!
It was our first time there, but not our last. Kudos for the friendly
service, impressive ambiance and, especially, for the absolutely
delicious dinner we had.

I always love this place but was disappointed on Valentines Day that they didn't have the regular menu. My boyfriend enjoyed his steak though. Still would recommend 10/10

Lobster bisque was salty. Swordfish too dry tasted like cardboard.. Vegetables poorly cooked. Dining room extremely warm and uncomfortable. Had to ask for everything two times. Wait staff needs training as to when to ask/bring water and bread.

We were visiting from out-of-town for the first time, and had set-up a reservation ahead of time in order to be certain to eat when we wanted. There was a private party in the ground-floor Dining Room, so we were diverted to the top-floor bar, where a duet was playing and singing with amplification which was not really needed in the small and bright space. The meal was very good, particularly the oysters. But, we would have enjoyed it more were it quiet.

Thanks for dining with us, Charlie. We're happy to hear your meal was very good and that you particularly enjoyed our local oysters. When we have music on the 4th floor, it can really add to the ambiance. Typically, the music is in the main dining room. That night, as a result of a large, private party, we made the decision to move the musicians upstairs. We will certainly monitor the volume level with the musicians in the future! Thank you for the feedback.

Felt like we were imposing just being there the food was ok the service was attentive but when the manger walked around the corner and saw us she said, not softly, oh shoot! Like we weren’t supposed to be there! We made a reservation! The crowd in the bar was so loud, we never complain when people are having a good time, but we couldn’t even hear each other at our table! Probably our last date Friday night date night at this restaurant. Not impressed

All four of us enjoyed our dinner choices very much. Our friends had the mushroom risotto and rosemary chicken. They live locally and commented that they should dine at Chair 5 more frequently.
My husband and I always look forward to staying at the hotel, participating in the wine tastings, and enjoying fabulous meals.

Good raw bar and drinks. Ordered fish and chips which came to table cold. My wife ordered chicken Kilkenny and said it was delicious. My Fisk and chips did not make it back to table by the time my wife finished eating, so I took it home and it was quite good. Waitress was nice and professional. It happens.

We had reservations on a Saturday night. The Food was great and worth the value. The problem was service. The hostess was confused and flustered on the First floor. She was more concerned that the “Hostess Sign” was incorrect than assisting us when we arrived.
Our server was not well trained, not attentive. It was not busy at all. She had to replace our appetizer order as she placed the first one incorrectly. We had to keep asking for our drinks and water to be refilled, she never asked if we wanted coffee and tea with our desert and we had to ask for dessert menu. She only had one other table to service.
Valet was great!

Main restaurant was closed without any clear notification on Open Table. Had to dine in bar/lounge. Too loud due to loud bar patrons. Spoke to Restaurant Manager who just shrugged. Food was great but would have enjoyed experience more if we could have dined in the restaurant. Great martini prepared by Jake-bartender

I made a reservation for 4 people outside 7:45. I called to change it to 5 people no problem. I called to see if we could be seated earlier the hostess said no they were full. My party arrived just after 7pm. We had a drink in the lounge bar upstairs. While our table sat outside empty... why??? Our table was ready but they would not seat us earlier...that’s disappointing. Lindsey our server was great. The food was very good. It just would have been nice to be seated earlier if our table was ready..

I had heard generally good things about Chair 5 but was pretty disappointed. The bartender had a long conversation with some women at the bar while our drink order languished for about 10 minutes (strike 1). Our order for 3 diners was mixed up so that the Caesar salad for the table arrived smothered with a Cod Filet at the same time as the other two entrees, whereas the Sea Bass entree did not arrive at all. We sent the salad back and then waited about 6-7 minutes for the sea bass entree that was reordered to appear, (diners now out of synch so strike 2). The sea bass was good, whereas the clams and pasta entree( X2) was not (pasta overcooked, clams rubbery) (strike 3). The topper was when our server bumped into a large wall decoration next the our table and dislodged it from the wall, but caught it just before it hit the floor. Overall service is not good and the food is variable. My take is that there are both management and staff experience issues that will prove difficult to improve.

I'm only giving 4 stars because I prefer a la carte like was offered in 2018. It gives the chef more latitude for creativity. Although the food was excellent buffets all seem to offer about the same stuff and it's boring.

We've been there multiple times and it remains hit or miss. In fact, we were there the first week that it opened. The servers are usually great (like pleasant) except they often don't get things right. I can't help but feel since the day it opened that they continue to have managerial problems. The food is usually and often excellent. This time, the steak was ordered medium rare and it was way overcooked. Don't quite know what to say. I love the atmosphere and remain committed to the place, but there has to be better quality control. Both of the food and the frequent delays in serving. Could be such a gem.

We went to Chair 5 during Narragansett Restaurant Week. Although we had read 'mixed reviews' prior to our reservation, we decided to try it. We did not regret our decision. The food was excellent. The service was very good. Because they were very busy, I would say the staff was stretched a bit.

We would return.
