Food was great -cool vibe inside the restaurant too. Reminded me of a typical busy NYC place. I intend to return for another meal. Parking with the valet was convenient.

Great night out, they used real silverware instead of plastic like some other places due to covid. Clearly they know that a hi temp commercial dishwasher is more that sufficient to clean and sanitize. We dont get why other places use plastic to make it appear as if they are being covid safe, when all they are doing is contributing to more trash and waste on the environment. Plus it was nice to see they didn’t treat their guests like lepers. Finally a place in providence with great food , service and some normalcy.

The food was good, our waiter was excellent. I didn't like that the tables were on top of each other with no plexi glass in between. Restaurants are still on restrictions. This violated all COVID protocol. Otherwise, a nice place.

My husband and I went to Res American Bistro for our first date since having a baby, and we are so glad we did. The service was outstanding, from the recommendations of food and drinks, to ensuring our every need/want was met. Additionally the food was outstanding, the menu was unique and every course was a delight. They made our date so enjoyable. We will definitely be going back!

First time coming but won’t be my last! Server was good but seemed not knowledgeable of the menu or the drinks. I requested in advance with the front for a happy birthday candle for the person I was with, but they didn’t include it with the dessert.
Still a new restaurant so these types of errors happen but the food and atmosphere was great.

Amazing, amazing food. The bar/drinks are pretty good and they accept special requests. Huge plus for me!!!

Staff is great! Very friendly!

More attention needs to be paid to cleanliness in the dining area. We had early reservations - first ones in the door. There were crumbs on booth seats and floor.

This place is an awesome new edition to providence! They have valet and an app to have the car ready when you’re ready to leave, very convenient. We were immediately greeted by two lovely hostesses who had our reservation ready earlier then expected so we got sat immediately. We sat at the bar where we got a really nice view of the restaurant, the decor is full of moderation and flair, it was lovely. Our bartender Melissa was just a peach! She made our drinks promptly that were extremely fresh and made with love i swear! We had jumbo shrimp cocktail that were so fresh, the dipping sauce was made with their bloody mary mixture, i have to come back to try one of those when i’m not pregnant! For dinner i ordered the Chicken Pappardelle that was so damn good, it was shredded juicy chicken with lots of flavor over thick egg noodles in a bed of chicken savory broth that was the perfect consistency (not too thick or thin). My boyfriend had the steak that was aged in butter for 20 days that was cooked perfectly to his liking and he could cut it with a fork! He raved about the potatoes that were extremely delightfully different it was like balls of potato with a fried panko crust. We were too full for dessert but the menu looked quite delicious. Melissa was such a delight and the owners even introduced themselves, everyone was so genuine and personable. Overall one of the best experiences i have had in a long time, easily said this will be our new spot and i can’t wait to go back!

Excellent dishes! We had the Mexican shrimp, salmon, ocean risotto and baked chicken. For dessert, we tried the espresso cake, it was rich and decadent but my favorite was the blueberry basil ice cream tart. I would go back just for that alone. The cocktails were also excellent! I had the CC. Overall good value for the experience.

This bistro is top shelf!!! I’ve eaten here 3 times and have tried different items on the menu... Each meal has its own uniqueness and use of creativity!! I would highly recommend this place! It has now become our weekly go to!

Atmosphere is fantastic w/ a splash of old and new... the ceilings are high so the noise level is average.

The owners are incredibly friendly and always come out to see how we like the meal..

I give this 5 stars

This was our first dining experience at Res and we were throughly impressed! The Chef came out to ask how we liked the food and if there was anything that he could get for us, which made the experience even more special! I’d highly recommend you dine here if you haven’t already!

We had a wonderful experience at Res! very clean, well-trained staff. Kevin was our server and was prompt and very friendly. The Family Practice off their cocktail menu is amazing. It is: Woodfood Reserve, blood orange juice, vanilla syrup, lemon juice & egg white.
We definitely will be back. Highly recommended!

Amazing! A must try. You will fall in love. Lobster tempura app was out of this world. Seafood risotto and rack of lamb will have your taste buds wanting more ! Just make sure you save room for dessert! Always a fan of a place that can make a REAL and delicious espresso martini !
