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.

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!! 🤣🤣

the waitress was quite rude, she did not bring the bread, she left dirty dishes on the table for the entire dinner, she brought the bill without asking for a dessert or a coffee. It was quite annoying. The food was great.

Great food, wonderful service, but the open kitchen produces a smoke filled dining room. It was not pleasant!

Terribly disappointed in the quality and expense of the food. I ordered the beef stroganoff and my friend ordered the orecchiette pasta. Both were smothered in sauce (as if it was being used to cover up the rest of the faulty food in the dish) over mushy pasta at $20 plus dollars. Neither of us ate our meal. We only complained about the orecchiette and it was taken off the bill. We felt awkward complaining about both meals. Our other friend had a burger which she loved. The server was lovely and offered her apologies and a complimentary desert. There is no signage on the outside of the restaurant and a very dimly light doorway made identifying the restaurant difficult. Needless to say we would not go back.

Red Stripe is always good. One of our friends had the duck special and raved about it. For me, the mussels and fries are a must. Can’t miss going here.

I think our waiter was just really busy so our service was great and they sat us next to the open kitchen/oven; it was extremely hot and at some points smokey.

Red Stripe's food is known generally to be good, not great. I was with 6 others for lunch. One said her salad was tired and looked like it was "prepared yesterday." My mussels were incredibly large - not a good sign b/c of over maturity - also tough, gritty and inedible. The saffron broth with them was very good. So too were the frites. I asked for and quickly received some very good crusty bread to sop up the mussel broth. My friends ate the frites. Four of us had coffee after lunch: the word on that was "it is OK." The biggest drawback: THE NOISE LEVEL IS INCREDIBLY HIGH. I know several folks who won't even patronize this restaurant because of the noise. We couldn't even hear a conversation across our table. The server was very accommodating and didn't charge me for the mussels even though I said I'd happily pay half the price to cover the frites, broth, and bread.
