A word from Red Stripe
Red Stripe is a traditional brasserie with an edge. Classic, and unique. Red Stripe has the distinction of being upscale yet relaxed, where you will find people from all walks of life enjoying their dining experience. Red Stripe serves comfort food with a French influence – simple in context, yet refined in taste. Food that is reasonably priced and made with passion! Come try one of our originals – like the mouth watering Red Stripe Grilled Cheese, made with prosciutto, poached pear and basil; accompanied by our oven roasted tomato soup or hand cut frites and aioli (surely unlike any grilled cheese you’ve had before) or our wide selection of moules (ten to be exact!) always a house favorite!
Red Stripe is located on the East Side of Providence in bustling Wayland Square and was recently awarded “Best Neighborhood Restaurant” by Rhode Island Monthly.

Diner Reviews
  • "We really weren't satisfied at all. My salmon came out undercooked and I got my dinner back when my husband was done. The lentils in the dish were also over cooked. My husband had an open steak sandwich and in had at least a half a cup of sautéed red onions on it which he had to remove to eat it. We go frequently, but this was an off night!"

  • "We are locals and are big fans of Red Stripe. We usually sit at the bar and think tops of Wendy who often serves us (both in terms of skill and person). Food choices cover a good range and is always well-prepared. The night this reservation is related to we had great service. Unfortunately can't remember his name, but our waiter (had a beard) was great at being attentive to a rather sizable group."

  • "Had been here for lunch a few times, this was first time for dinner. Due to past experience, expected a great meal with good service and Red Stripe definitely delivered on that! Husband and I brought a friend along. Surprised at how busy the restaurant was on Thursday night with it being "summer in the city!". Good thing we had made a reservation. Seated immediately, vibrant, energetic scene, superb very friendly waiter, and we all were delighted with our meals. Shared the rice ball appetizer which was huge and plenty for 3 of us to split, husband loved his pork dish, friend her pasta selection, and my stroganoff was a real treat. Highly recommend for any occasion!"

  • "One of our favorite restaurants, but it was a miss this time. Not enough staff on, had to wait long time for drinks and food to arrive. We had to ask several times for silverware & water. The waiter tried his best (Dan) but really had too many tables to cover. The other wait staff couldn't cover because they were just as busy. Was this because the restaurant was trying to cut costs? or was it because there just wasn't enough wait staff available to staff the shift? Very disappointed with the manager who we watched walk around, but never went to any tables...very ineffectual."

  • "This was my second time dining here. It was fabulous again. The food is delicious! Portions are generous. I had the steak frites with the red wine butter, it was cooked perfectly. We took our friends here for their anniversary and they were impressed and can't wait to go back! Interestingly, the couple we took here last time showed up with their friends! They too loved it and were eager to return!"

  • "we have gone to red stripe for brunch a few times, and it was always a solid choice. we recently had lunch there, though, and it was really excellent. there were 6 of us (including a 1 year old), and everyone enjoyed their food. i personally thought the pastrami sandwich was quite delicious. we will be back again!"

  • "Everything about this restaurant was excellent, the food, the service, the bread, atmosphere, timing, great affordable wine selection, choice micro brews on tap. I had the paella, my wife had the pork tenderloin special, both were presented with pride and were delicious. We shared an equally unforgetable dessert. The dishes that we ordered were alittle pricey so I would only use this restaurant experience for special occasions. But there are other offerings that are more within our price range so we will be back sooner to try more selections that also look great."

  • "The mussels and the bread are incredible and most of the wait staff are very pleasant. My husband and I did take our two children here once, however, and the waitress we had that night was very unpleasant towards my kids even though they were behaving very well. "

  • "This was my first visit to the Red Stripe, and my friend and I were very impressed. In the first place, they honored our request for a table to one side so we could "catch up" after not seeing each other for months. In the second place, our waitress was pleasant, prompt, and very capable ... and we never felt rushed. And in the third place, the grilled cheese sandwiches we each had were out of this world! Served with a good sized bowl of delicious oven roasted tomato soup, the meal was more than we could even finish!! I am looking forward to returning to this great restaurant!"

  • "We go to Red Stripe often, all of their dinners and appetizers are great. I am a finicky eater and they always have something great for my basic needs and something for my wife's eclectic taste. I also consider service as important as any another aspect of dining and their service is always great from reservations to paying the bill. "

  • "I had a reservation for 3:00 PM on Mother's Day, which I thought would be a good time where you may get brunch and late lunch simultaneously. I was wrong, they had a very late ending brunch this past Sunday, or so we were told. Anyway, brunch was good, you have options for a variety of omelettes, eggs bennes, burgers, salads and sandwiches. I had the Salad Nicoise with Grilled Salmon and she had the Caesar Salad that came with Grilled Chicken and poached eggs. Both were tasty and plentiful - a real nice mid-afternoon meal when topped with a tall frosty. Surprisingly only 3 draft choices - I would have thought 5 or 6 would be there - maybe they don't get a big calling for more. The windows were open, it's warm, sunny, no traffic - nice! "

  • "The food was fabulous. A Hummus, Tabbouleh, & Babganoush starter with Poulette Moules (half order with a house salad), Mouclade Moules (full order split between two with a house salad and french onion soup), and Fish & Chips for 4 adults. A few more pitas with the starter would have been good but that’s always the case. It’s loud, so if you’re bringing grandma she won’t hear a thing. And they had Red Stripe available in a bottle."

  • "When we got seated, our waiter Sean was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, pleasant and patient. The best service I've had at Red Stripe. The food was hit or miss. -The calamari app was very good, crispy, tender and yummy. The dip sauce was spicy and delicious. -The pizza was good but not crispy enough. The crust did not hold up when picked up...cheese very runny. -The hummus plate was delicious. I - had the chopped salad and I was disappointed. I left half of it. -My BF got the ziti pasta and it was so salty, we could not eat it. Even the pieces of pasta that had no sauce were super salty. We took it home and we are going to Re-Make. "

My favorite part was when I asked for an Irish Coffee for an after dinner drink he stated that I looked like an original Irish Coffee guy which I am!!!!! Coffee and Jamison. Delicious! Can't wait to return. Thanks, Brian"

  • "My wife and I were interested to check out Red Stripe. Overall the variety on the menu was good but the food left us disappointed. This place needs to cut back on the salt. The paella had great potential but the salt level was too high and one of my muscles had sand in it. My wife was excited for the duck confit pot pie but it was also too salty. The biggest let down was the French onion soup which should be a standard at this type of establishment but missed the mark, too sweet. The beat salad was great though and the high point of my meal. Atmosphere was lively and service was great. "

  • "We had an excellent dinner here. The only problem was that we had a reservation but had to wait 25 minutes to get a table. I asked about our tables status once and they said they were just waiting for people to leave. Once we were seated the manager came over and did not charge us for corkage for the wine we brought in. We were very pleased that they offered that without us complaining. For a starter we shared the Basque Calamari which was great. For dinner we had the Steak Frites, excellent and prepared as requested; Seared Sea Scallops, very tender and wonderful; Fish and Chips, very good. No room for dessert. Great meal and we would return."

  • "We found Red Stripe based on a web search. Reservations were easy and within 15 minutes of our desired time (to allow us to get to a show after dinner). We LOVED Red Stripe. The menu has a wide range of choices. Great apps, drinks. Our server Aaron was was excellent - that perfect combination of friendly, efficient, knowledgeable. This is our new favorite place in Providence. Great neighborhood vibe and easy to find."

  • "I was there the week before they closed for the expansion, which they really need since it is cramped around the bar in the evening. Place is always a popular spot - food is very good, very energetic environment (sometimes a little loud) and outstanding service. Dana, our waiter, was awesome and he took very good care of us (he, like a lot of wait staff, have been there for years). Thought the food, drinks and atmosphere were great. Only possible complaint could be the noise level (it gets loud), but this will improve once the expansion takes place. Definitely a neighborhood gem, worth putting on your list of places to go in Providence and on the East Side."

  • "In what used to be the Newport Creamery at "The Square", Wayland Square on the East Side of Providence, there is now a wonderful restaurant called Red Stripe. My family and I, joined by a couple of cousins, decided to have lunch here because it was convenient to Swan Point Cemetery. The staff went out of their way to make our meal enjoyable and made certain that we were out on time! I had the Chicken Pesto Salad, which was absolutely delicious. Other members of our party were also extremely happy with their meals; all pronouncing their food delicious. The only problem we had was the noise level; it was difficult to have a conversation. Nevertheless, it was and enjoyable and delicious meal with a wonderful staff!"

  • "So the room at Red Stripe fills the bill for a fun, lively spot. It looks like a Parisian bistro, unfortunately it devolves into a Providence bistro! Too bad, we have had a good run at a variety of places in Providence. The mussels, which are finished in 10 different styles (one of the main reasons we chose the place), were disappointing: rubbery, overdone. Entrees were similar, no finesse, nothing special. A croque Madame was ok, very little meat - too much cheese and a flavorless hollandaise. A meat pie offering was much less interesting than the menu suggested. I can go on but I don't like ripping restaurants - it may have been a bad night - there are 5 or 6 bistros I can name in Boston that beat this place...'nuf said. "

  • "Red Stripe may be one of the best restaurants in Providence. The ambience is comfortable and chic. It's an upscale place without stuffy pretentions. Instead, it's welcoming -- provided you can actually get a table. Reservations are not required, but I recommend making them. The menu is an incredible selection of continental preparations of steak, fish, and chicken. The risotto croquettes were close to arancini without ragu, so I'm not sure why they were named as they were. But they were tasty and each of the two balls was a hearty size. The bouillabaisse was a New England take on the dish, with six mussels, a couple shrimp, two clams, chunks of salmon, onion, and carrots. It was great, and I took half home to have the next day. "
