Enjoyed a couple's night out for dinner. Wonderful ambiance. Had the Ginger Grapefruit Bourbon Sour. Out of this world cocktail. Enjoyed the Charcuterie spread, the Calamari was out of this world and the Fresh Pappardelle was fantastic. Great service. Beautiful mid-city feel and high energy surroundings. Would definitely recommend and will be going back personally.

Food was truly amazing, so much flavor and portions were great. The entire staff were phenomenal especially our bartender Andy! The owners and chef came out and said hello and checked in with us to ensure we were enjoying ourselves, such a great way to operate the business. Thanks for a great meal.

I adore Res! I took my husband here for his birthday and it was the perfect choice. The staff is knowledgeable and fun, the atmosphere is lovely, and the food was excellent. They have a fun and well curated cocktail list too. Definitely try the wedge salad, it was the best salad I think I have ever tried. We will definitely be back!

This is our fourth visit to Res since it opened and we have yet to be disappointed. We introduced two friends to Res on this visit and they both loved the food, the ambience, and the service. Two of us enjoyed the Chicken en Croute (an inventive and delicious chicken version of Beef Wellington) while my husband enjoyed the Ocean Risotto. Our other friend loved the Fresh Pappardelle in all of its chicken and broth-y goodness. We are greatly anticipating the coming new Summer menu when Res returns from their much-deserved Independence Day break. Kudos to Evan, Ryan, Stephen and their entire staff! We cannot wait until the holiday season when we can pair one of their great dinners with a night at the Trinity Rep theatre!

Went for our anniversary. The food and service were outstanding. Noteworthy are the Moroccan rack of lamb and the warm lobster roll. The tuna tartar was also excellent as was the lichee martini. We highly recommend this bistro for any occasion or just for a very fine meal.

Great new vibe, innovative menu, try the teriyaki bacon by all means. The chicken is good and plentiful but the sauce there doesn't work very well. Limited high end liquor options. Great service, efficient and friendly, valet parking. And it's far cleaner than Bravo was when it occupied the space!

What a treat to find a great restaurant that survived. I don't know how they did it starting up last year but do yourself a favor and try it out. We're over an hour away and happened to be going to Providence for another reason and was looking for dinner prior.
We've been to other very good to excellent restaurants in the area, but this has to be the new number one.
We had the seafood risotto and Mongolian Lamb and both were outstanding.
