Since 1989, Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill has been a favorite Bristol restaurant, serving eclectic fare with a European flair. We pride ourselves on being a small town European style restaurant which draws the best from several countries. German food is the primary focus, with the best Wiener Schnitzel of any Rhode Island restaurant. Wonderful German beer and Belgian beer also grace our authentic porcelain beer towers. For those who are not looking for a German dinning experience we also feature several Italian and French dishes and even a Portuguese little neck appetizer since we are in Bristol. For New Englanders our fish is fresh and local. So you can enjoy fresh fried sole, instead of frozen fish and chips. Overlooking the water front at Independence park, and in the heart of downtown Bristol, Rhode Island, Redlefsen's is comfortably elegant. Whether you sit in our dining room, the lounge, or the function room.

Went for New Year's Eve - was sort of a quiet setting - but was bitterly cold! Food was good as always - but just did not have the same feel as other times. Our server was ok, not really enthusiastic or accommodating. My daughter had requested Chicken piccata instead of Cod piccata (has been happily done in the past), and our server was sort of like, yeah...no. So, we were a bit disappointed with that. Was not crowded, and our seating felt a bit cramped. Still a great place to dine - but may give it a rest for a bit.

The food was superb and the service was second to none. Owner came over and spoke with us for a while. Went all the way, appetizer, meal, dessert, and if course drinks. Great experience.

We had an earlier reservation, but had to delay because of traffic and other commitments with guests. The OpenTable allowed me to switch in seconds. We arrived and had a lovely evening in the bar area which was very cozy by the fire. Good food and service was excellent

Redlefsen's is one of our favorite spots, and with good reason. It is a pleasure to walk into this restaurant and be so nicely greeted, seated, and especially fed. The food is consistently wonderful. Looking forward to our next visit.
