We had lunch at the Red Parrot with Cheeseburger, Lobster Ravioli and a Beasty Boy. The food was really good, but we left immediately after eating, because it was so cold inside the restaurant. Krista was our waiter, she was friendly and helpful.

The Red Parrot is on the busiest corner of the main popular area of Newport. It seems to always be busy and noisy but popular with a young, informal, family crowd. The food is adequate but not exceptional. Try it at least once, but keep in mind that there are many dining opportunities in a short walking distance, particularly at... More

Love this restaurant, it's location and extensive menu. Fun , hip vibe with great views of active street life outside. Extensive drink and food menu will satisfy all palates. Whether you're coming in for drinks, dessert or meal you won't be disappointed.

solid place. I personally have an aversion to any place with a color and an animal. Green dolphin, red lobster, blue whatever. Anyway, went here in the middle of the january 2017 blizzard. Nice not fantastic decor. Great waiter (Daniel). Food and beer selection were very good. My dish was huge; was good but not sensational. Good drinks (girly drinks...chocolate... More

We ate here for lunch and enjoyed the food but the portions were incredibly large. We both have good appetites but they were no match for the nachos! This is a restaurant that has a TGI Friday feel.

I guess this one is the most famous resturant in New port, big label and very easy to catch, you can not miss it. For 2 men, table is little bit tidy, but it is also very neat. I order lobster, and my friend order salmon. Both taste good. YOU HAVE TO TASTE their cocktails. They have their own recipes... More

We stopped in for a drink and app. The menu is unimaginative and seemed like choices of mostly frozen apps. The bartender was nice but dismissive when it was clear we weren't going to order more drinks. Definitely would not recommend.

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
