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.

Great place , parking was easy , service was good. Food was good. Fish tacos and clam chowder were phenomenal. Baked stuffed jumbo shrimp weren't jumbo at all. The dish looked like an appetizer not an entree. Other than that I'll definitely be back for the items mentioned above.

Our food was terrific. The service was too. Fish and chips, a Reuben, a BLT. However, if you’re hearing impaired, this is not the place for you.

Eric provided timely and attendance service
Steak Frites were delicious you get a ton of fruits
Fish tacos served as fish and chips was very tasty

Portions are large so we got at least two meals out of this

Red stripe needs to rethink the preparation of their calamari

Food was good but if muscles are their specialty, they need to bring back “bread for table” even if it’s by “request only”. The muscle sauce is too good not to sop up with delicious bread. COVID is no longer an excuse. Also, kitchen staff was quite loud banging dishes around. A bit startling at times. But, we have always enjoyed our dining at red stripe. We’ll be back.

WAY too noisy. I've been to many restaurants with open kitchens, but the banging of pots, pans and plates was loud and distracting. Not a good dining experience.

Aggressively mediocre is the only way to describe the blandest burger and fries I’ve ever had. I also asked for it medium well and it was at best medium. I’ve tried this restaurant several times over the years and am still confounded by its popularity.

Missed the bread for the mussels. Not serving due to
COVID. Wish they had small individual loafs so the wait staff didn’t have to slice the bread.

Food was just ok...not what I’m used to from Red Stripe. Our server while nice, did not check in once we received our food to ensure everything was ok and walked by several times without asking if I needed another beer.

Our waiter Dylan was outstanding and went above and beyond to make us comfortable. He even suggested certain dishes on the menu we would never normally try and ended up loving! We drove about thirty minutes to try this place and it was definitely worth it. One of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to with amazing service!

I asked for a table in the front room near a window. Was put in back in a booth. Hostess was rude had no idea I had requested anything. Second time I was treated like this.
The level of disrespect from the hostess was intolerable. I did call the following day and spoke to a manager who was very nice. This is the second time I’ve experienced this behavior. Very disappointed with the fact that the couple ahead of me got the table I wanted and she asked if they wanted the table ....sure they said and .

Visited Red Stripe for the 1st time on Mother's Day. Our table was ready immediately upon arrival. You could tell they were short staffed yet we were treated great. The food was terrific and reasonable. The red sangrias were a very big hit.
We will absolutely be returning.
