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.

I’m still little disappointed, dinner was amazing I loved the steak and fries and my partner loved fish & chips. I would have ordered dessert but I felt rushed. I came in at 930 and their was 2 tables seated finishing up and 2 people at bar. I understand it was slow Tuesday night but that isn’t excuse you took my Reservation and the server was great but minute the kitchen shut the lights off that’s when all respect went out the door. I’m executive in Boston and that would never fly in any restaurant you don’t shut down the kitchen till every quest in your restaurant is gone, especially with open kitchen concept. You ruined my experience and most likely won’t return. I was looking forward to dessert and I’m so angry especially when could spring my money elsewhere

We used to go here a lot, but the quality of the food has dropped off over the past few years. We decided to go again on Sunday, and we were disappointed. The place was very crowded, and the acoustics are terrible when it's crowded. Our appetizers - clam chowder and deviled eggs - were okay, if overpriced ($4 for two half-eggs!). Partner's fish and chips were overcooked. I had eggs Benedict with crabcakes; the crabcakes were burnt on the outside and raw on the inside, and the seasoning wasn't pleasant. Also, instead of English muffins, they used thick toast, which was off to one side of the plate - the eggs, crabcakes, and Hollandaise sauce were on the other, and I had to assemble the whole thing myself.

The three people at the table next to us weren't enjoying their meal either; one sent her plate back, and very loudly complained that it still wasn't right after it came back from the kitchen.

The place seems popular - it's full of local people and Brown students. But the food, which used to be excellent and interesting, is not what it used to be.

Service was very good, though.

Came based on recommendations. Although a neighborhood favorite, I found Red Stripe intensively loud.. difficult to communicate with your date or guests while seated. It’s extrememly loud. Food was good, but the overwhelming noise eclipsed the culinary experience.

The one complaint I will make if that although we made a reservation for 8pm and arrived at about 8:05, we were not sat until almost 8:30 as the restaurant claimed not to have a table available for us. Over we were seated though, the server was over quickly to fill our water and to greet us. He was very attentive throughout the meal.

Both my wife and I ordered the French onion soup, which was tasty, albeit a bit sweet for my taste. While mine was the right proportion of broth to onion to bread, my wife had very little broth in hers so it meant that it was a bit difficult to eat after she got a few spoonfuls of broth.


I had the steak frites which was very tasty and the Gorgonzola butter which was also a nice addition. The frites were well seasoned so, even though I asked for ketchup, I didn't end up using it.

My wife ordered the roasted salmon which she said very much enjoyed. It seemed to be will cooked and seasoned and the Brussels sprouts that came with it looked tasty too.

I would definitely go back the next time I'm in Providence.

Our first time dining at Red Stripe. Food was amazing. Service was excellent. I wasn't sure what to expect, but we enjoyed our meals.
Parking for this place is not so good. Located right near a college, so a lot of the parking spaces are for residents only. Thankfully the spot that was available wasn't a metered spot.
The staff and meals, made it worth going here.
(They have Stella on tap!! 😁) BIG plus for me!! 🤣🤣
