Stopped at Redlefsen's after a visit to Blithewold Manson. Interesting decor - seemed like German-Italian fusion. Lunch was good - the Jonah crab burger was delicious. My husband had the schnitzel sandwich and enjoyed it as well. It was not very busy on a Wednesday, and they had only one waitress for the diners inside and on the patio out... More

My husband and I had a very nice dinner and excellent beer sitting outside on the sidewalk terrace of the restaurant. The food I chose was traditional schnitzel, no surprises there, it was nice, the service friendly and relaxed. We also had a great seat for listening to the outdoor concert going on next to us in Independence Park. All... More

With so many great restaurants, we would recommend that you skip this one. We have lived in Bristol for 15 years, and every time we decide to give this place a try, we are disappointed. I guess that we do not learn quickly. The food is just average; the service is OK, but not great. Skip this one.

We've dined at Redlefsen's several times over the years, often when sailing into Bristol Harbor for a visit. The restaurant is a contender for best-in-Bristol; in any case is consistently excellent. Service is always attentive, food and drinks are great, and the atmosphere comfortable.

A restaurant that specializes in German style dishes but has a complete menu. Food was excellent and service as well

We love German food. The red cabbage, spaetzle and succotash served with the main course was delicious. The atmosphere was pleasant with a welcoming wait staff. Jeff, the owner was present and engaging as well. We will return again soon although we live on the opposite side of Narragansett Bay.

We enjoyed our meal here - a wonderful mix of flavors that were appreciatively described by their amazing wait staff. German flare - so if you like different and looking for some authentic German food - this is your place. We will return here for other menu delights! Great beer selection as well! A must go!

We love German food, so we try to eat it when it is available. Redlefsen's offers several German dishes, as well as more standard American fare. I had goulash, served on spaetzel, which would have benefited from an hour or so more in the pot, but which was generally good. My wife had sauerbraten, which she liked a lot. Our... More
