The food was outstanding but the service was very slow. Not the fault of the server but the cooks. (However server never ask about what we wanted to drink). We arrived at 2pm but didn't receive our main course until 3 pm

I have been there many times and enjoyed very good service and food. This time, I ate at the bar and the service was the worst ever, the food was average. The tall bartender could not have cared less. The person next to me had to get up and walk around the bar to get his attention.
I will eat in the dining room in the future.

Great burger but it could have been cooked a bit more my moms and mine especially mine but we didn’t want to say anything
But it was still good and we will be back
Best to come when it’s not that busy because it’s quieter

Terrific food, service and atmosphere on a very busy New Year's Eve. Delicious moules and frites as well as linguine with little necks. Decadent chocolate cake for dessert. Always a wonderful meal.

Red Stripe is a very comfortable restaurant to share a meal with someone without feeling on display. Food is very good and service is very good too! Servers are friendly and accommodating too. The only negative I would say is that I would like to see more preferable, desired food choices on the menu. On New Year's Eve, typical choices that appeal to many were not offered although food chosen by my guests were highly rated for freshness and quality. I would return because of quality of food served.

We really like Red Stripe but we had a waitress that was not paying attention. She was more interested in chatting with bartender. She did not get our order right. Manager seemed nice even helped take our picture for my wife but she needs to pay more attention to staff service.

Ate at Red Stripe before a show at the Odeum, and we couldn't have been happier. Great, attentive service. Fun menu, our group had a wide variety - deviled eggs and the tart for apps, short ribs, stroganoff, chicken with polenta and the fall salad w/shrimp for entrees. Tomato soup was fantastic. Cappuccino was very good, as was the creme brulee. Everything was served on time but not rushed, we had plenty of time to make it to our show. Fantastic, we will be back.

Tomato soup is excellent. Service was good. Unfortunately kitchen was slammed due to large party in back room so it took a long time to get our food. It was hot when delivered.

Being completely unfamiliar with the area, we stumbled on Red Stripe through Open Table reviews. We were, first-off, delighted at finding off-street parking for the restaurant, as it was a stormy and rainy night.
We arrived a couple of minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately at a lovely table. Our server, Marco, greeted us warmly and served us attentively throughout the evening, despite the restaurant bustling with a lively and crowded holiday scene.

I ordered New England clam chowder and the braised short ribs. Both were excellent. The short ribs were so tender that I didn't need a knife - served over red-skinned mashed potatoes and braised brussels sprouts.
Hubby ordered the beef stroganoff and was also very pleased.

Desserts were carrot cake and the cookie sundae. The wait on the dessert was a bit longer than expected - then we realized why when it came out. The cookie was freshly baked in a cast-iron skillet and served piping hot topped with vanilla ice cream - a rich and delicious treat. The carrot cake was a unique approach - very little icing, more of a dense spice cake topped with a honey/caramel sauce.

We would definitely recommend this excellent restaurant.

Late (around 8pm) on a Sunday night after a show at the local theatre, there were only a couple of other customers at the bar, and one other table that came in after us (from the same show!). Despite the fact that the staff was probably ready to finish things up by that time of night, we never felt that way. Service was friendly, food was terrific.

Red Stripe is one of my favorite places until last night. The service was terrible and it took over an hour to get our food which was Luke warm when we received if. I was there with friends and my daughters after the EG tree lighting. Disappointed by the experience.

There were bugs in the manhattans. Twice. The bugs got in a bottle of vermouth. Food wasn't great either. Would not ever go back or recommend.

Red Stripe has a varied menu, many choices for a quick bite or a longer meal. Every night, they offer a discounted special. I had the Thursday burger special, 9.99 with fries and a drink at the bar. Perfect!

This is the second time we've been here and sat at the same table! Nice and quiet as this was our anniversary date. The entire organization here has it going on; the wait staff, chefs, management all deserve top notch praise. Professional service, hot tasty food, set in a tranquil environment is all one can ask for when dining out. I'd come here again and would highly recommend this place to seafood lovers in general and mussel lovers specifically.

What can I say? We had another great meal at Red Stripe. Service was fantastic and the food very, very good. I had the meatloaf special which I think should be on the menu and it was so tasty. The others had the Kitchen Sink, which is a huge salad with virtually everything you can imagine in it and the cauliflower appetizer which is to die for.

We arrived 45 minutes early and we were graciously seated, from there it was downhill. The mussels were gritty and half of them were dark and shriveled. The mushroom tart was dry and tasteless. The waiter described the special as bolognese lasagna ......shepherds pie was delivered. My husband said it was good but not what he expected. The waiter was definitely out of sync.
All in all, not a delightful experience.
