The Brussels sprouts are superb; the burger just OK. My tuna was well prepared and decent. The dressing on the accompanying spinach salad took the dish up a notch. The wings are worth checking out: whole wings in a zesty sauce. The cocktail menu is quirky to say the least, and seems potent enough. From our party, the comments were... More

Is on the trendier side of things. The interior is nice, a little on the dark side. The food is solid, I really enjoy the fried chicken. They have some great drinks specials.....$6 for a 24oz Modelo Especial.

The veggie dumplings looked disconcertingly un-Asian, bit tasted quite authentic and didn't actually disappoint. The short ribs with some kind of amazing creamed Brussels sprouts were quite amazing, though very heavy in flavors and apt to make you feel guilty. The mussels, blah. Cocktails were quite good, a bit heavy on the alcohol but I guess that's what college towns... More

A hip place. The food is mostly comfort food and is well done but not outstanding. The bar is excellent and has many uncommon offerings. It is a pretty noisy place and is often packed. But it's a fun time for drinks and casual food with friends.

The food was nothing but Average at best, mac and cheese was dry. Hamburgers were over cooked. The service was snoooooty! The bartender was snippy. So even if the food was good, the service certainly makes it a no go!

Red Fez reminded me of a lot of the great restaurants we have in Baltimore. Their menu was interesting, they had a really cool take on food, and were creatives with the meals, and the drinks. The wings were super spicy but tasty, and the mac and cheese was one of the best! We were lucky enough to get the... More

Dark and cozy, with great drinks (The "gingered gentleman" was a favorite) and above average "bar food." Don't miss the homemade pickles.

The Fez is a favorite of mine and was a staple the 7 years I lived in Providence. Funky, witty, quirky, intelligent; yes the price you pay for that is a decent amount of snark. So what... The wings are insane, the poutine a food group unto itself. Stand up, sit down, just get yourself in and enjoy.
