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 pesto; 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.

Overall the food was excellent. Appetizers were perfect as were main dishes. Creme Breulet was a good portion but undercooked. More like custard. But we will go again.

I really love RS and look forward to my next meal there. I've been to this restaurant several times and the food is always great. I had 1 poor experience with waitstaff, but it didn't stop me from coming back because the food is great and prices reasonable. Wait staff was great this time. I went with 5 friends and all of us enjoyed our food, drinks and time here.

Great meals and service and family-friendly. The Shrimp and Polenta and Portuguese Moules Frittes were superb and the Calamari was great. Also, the overall atmosphere is authentic.

Red stripe has always been a favorite of mine. The food is very tasty and reasonably priced. We had apps, cocktails, and entrees, all of which were delicious. The service was great and we did not feel rushed but always had the opportunity to grab our waiter for a quick request. Fantastic place to go to.

Red Stripe is a local Eastside of Providence favorite. Hidden gem for everyone else. Soup , apps and salads are stellar. Sandwiches and entrees are made fresh and remarkably good. In a world of mediocrity Red Stripe stands tall in all around excellence. Bravo!

Our seat location was next to the bathrooms and exit. I had a wall view. There were tables at the window and we were seated in the back with reservations more than two weeks in advance. Not good.

Very good food. Be aware that appetizers are smaller than most. Perhaps the quality makes up for that. For the neighborhood, prices are fairly reasonable. Very good service. I’d recommend this place.

While the service was outstanding, my Steak Frites (both the meat and the fries) cooled down quickly (and I am a notoriously fast eater). By the end of the meal, the steak was cold. As it was Christmas Eve, I decided not to complain.

The food was excellent. Pre covid we dined there many times. The Quality remained excellent. Our waiter Dylan was even better. Just the right balance of attentiveness and welcoming. It was a great family meal with our adult children

The service was terrible. The meal was either cold or not good at all. For a very expensive bill I was very disappointed. We knew a few others who had gone there the same day and had the same feelings as us.

Everything was fine. But we were told the restaurant no longer serves bread with meals. Very disappointing and hard to be. They always had great baguettes that went perfectly with menu items like Mussels Frites. If the bread doesn’t come back I might not either.
