We sat at a high top table in the bar area to watch a football game and was told that we had to order food in order to sit at the table. Although I wasn't hungry, my husband ordered a few things for us to snack on. They were just OK. The service was so-so, if not slow. The couple... More

Expansive menu, but for some appetizers and salads it was quite expensive in the end. Lunch turned into a dinner pricing. This is an upbeat louder vibe, folks seem to be having a great time,

Was traveling with two young boys so long waits in most restaurants landed us at the Red Parrot. We were not expecting great things so I guess you can say the experience met expectations. This is definitely not fine dining but you know that going in. Pretty expansive menu so should be able to find something for everyone - probably... More

We visited the Red Parrot twice this week, because their extensive menu offered something for everyone. In addition to a great family atmosphere, quick and friendly service, I was very pleased to see what a wide selection of gluten-free food options I had! Even a selection of desserts!! Be sure to ask the hostess for a GF Menu; its basically... More

We read great things about the Red Parrot and could not wait to eat here on your NYE weekend trip to Newport. Sunday January 1st we decided to have dinner here. We checked in at the host desk on the first floor and the nice gentlemen informed us he only had one high top table on that floor but if... More

The very busy restaurant has surprisingly fast service. The food was delicious. For dessert, we ate the giant ice cream sundae--can't remember the name unfortunately.

And it never disappoints. The wait is always long but find a spot at the bar and relax. The dark and stormy sate nice on a cool evening. I had the wings which are the best I have ever had. Huge and perfectly flavored. My husband loves the spicy alfredo. We will be back next year.

Each person in our party of 7 was happy with their dinner and Greg, our excellent and polite server! We walked in not knowing anything about the Red Parrot and I was skeptical with such a large menu (almost like a book!), but each meal was delicious and quickly served! We were on the second floor and it was fairly... More

My old standby in Newport! Had a wonderful meal and experience there last night on a quick overnight getaway to Newport with my fiancée. The staff was friendly, made us feel at home. Plenty of seating as there are 3 floors, and the food on the vast menu is delicious! Usually, I get the salad with coconut shrimp, however this... More

We ate here twice. We sat at the booth with street views very picturesque . The food was lovely and reasonable pricing. Something for all with a kids menu too. Lovely servers and handy to our hotel so we could walk.

Thank Lyndy68
